    So the car is doing some crazy and wonderful things (sounds like an exhaust leak). So before it goes back to the tuner i will be changing all the gaskets, and hoping that the DP is not cracked. Will update soon.

    So quite a big update. As some of the SA guys may know, i have been having constant issues with the car for the past 6 months. It as now gotten to a point where i have decided to buy a daily driver and make the Audi a project car.

    The following is planned to happen in the next few months:

    Stage 2 Progressive WMI kit
    WOTBox
    Manual Tension Cambelt Service
    Unitronic Stage 2+ File
    OEM Rings (if anyone can suggest an OEM replacement that is just as good or better please let me know)
    IE Forged Rods with ARP Bolts
    Calico Bearings
    Flowing Cylinder Head
    New IE Valve Guides
    BC Fully Adjustable Coilovers
    Powerflex Suspension Bushes
    LSD
    Gearbox (need some insight on what can be done to strengthen these boxes)
    GKN Inner & Outer CV's
    All Suspension bits
    New Garrett K04-023
    New full 76mm Exhaust
    Battery Relocation (to the rear)

    That is all i can remember at the moment, if you guys have any suggestions please do not hesitate to comment as i would like to build the car right the first time.

    Thanks for looking.

    Why don't you raise the compression with some higher compression 1.8t pistons.

    Sorry, I forgot yours is an A3, I think the compression is already 9.5:1.
    S3's are 9.0:1

    So any suggestions on the gearbox side? Will vr6 internals be fine or should I opt for something else?

    Won't the vr6 have different ratios?

    Looking at Prawns gearbox history, you best off upgrading the transmission oil :blush:

    Yeah it does have a little longer ratios but i'm willing to live with that if the box doesn't break. I'm on my 3rd box now.

    This morning (after not being able to sleep) i thought i would get started on stripping out the car, so it can be sent in for the half cage.

    Just come general pics of what came out and what it looks like now. Still a long way to go.

    Small update, I have cleaned up the rear and started sourcing small things for the battery relocation which will be done this weekend. The battery will sit in the spare wheel arch.

    The earth strap, positive terminal and wiring to run for the battery.
