    Hmm I managed 57 MPG on my way from my weekend away (DIS reading) at a steady 70 MPG on cruise - seems to be getting better since my recent work / woes.

    Mine will be worse in 2 weeks. Turbo refurbed, Badger 5 TIP, and a few other bits and pieces. I'll be gunning it everywhere!

    Yes mate, this one has rear mudflaps adapted to fit the front. They do a good job, as everytime I wash this car, the mudflap is caked up with ****! But personally, I think it looks better without.

    As stated, you can get them in all sorts of fitment, but since I have a Karscher jetwash, I got one to fit mine.

    LOL, can I hear me talking in the background?

    Was good to see it running last night dude, getting there. :)

    I have a meth supplier locally to me. If we both buy meth together, then we can buy twice as much, and get a better discount.

    The guy Bill uses is biblically unreliable sadly. It's about £2 a litre from these lot, virgin grade, although I can get it cheaper from somewhere else.

    Let me know if you are interested in a Meth group buy.... lol

    I'll start a spreadsheet and everything...

    Dane, considering buying this: 205L Methanol. For bio diesel, water injection, racing | eBay UK

    It will have VAT on top of that, as well as postage. I will get in touch with the seller to find out amount. Shouldn't come to more than £150 in total though. Works out at £1.36 per litre which is cheap.

    It's virgin grade meth as well so it's good stuff.

    I thought if we went halves up on it, we could leave it at Bills, top up as needed, and then he can use it as well. He has gone above and beyond for both of us, for me many times, and it would be nice to give something back...

    Thoughts?

    Welly, My dad uses meth for his Bio-fuel.
    He buys it in 200litres drums.
    If it helps lower the price for all, I dont mind coming in and buying 200litres for him.

    Dane, Nice vid but stupid clitbang audio started, I did not relise at first and thought your misses was talking about how dirty your car is. lol

    nope not yet it's running but not properly mapped, Bills busy but he seemed to think he could get mine on the dyno today and then get the water meth installed and dial the map in a bit. And then I get it back.

    But it is a hella good noise you can hear me giggling like a school girl!

    Spoken to Bill dude, he doesn't want that much Meth on site really - highly flammable etc etc which is fair enough.

    I shall dig around and see what deals I can get.... mwhahaha.

    100 litres between us will last ages.

    Is that you giggling? It made me smile to hear someone so happy! ha. I was talking about this with my uncle at the weekend, saying how my wife would never enjoy the note of an engine, and yet hearing a nice car drive past can make my day.

    As for the meth...what does that do? I feel dumb for asking. :(

    Not at all dude, it's not that well known, although becoming more popular now.

    Read away: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_injection_(engines)

    Long and short, the methanol highers the octane level of the inbound fuel meaning you can use more timing advance, and the water absorbs heat, reducing charge, cylinder and exhaust temperatures making a healthier engine.

    Not very often mate, when my screenwash light comes on. Depends how you drive - if on boost lots, then more often than if you potter.

    Once every two weeks or so normally.

    Yeah thats me giggling/screaming in excitement, proper grinning!

    Because our K04's turn into heat pumps even after a stage 1 map the 50/50 mix of water and methanol, injected into the airflow, helps the engine run cooler and more reliably I think. I don't fully understand it myself but I know it's good for my hybrid and Bill reccomends it.

    Slash what Welly said!

    Guys would it be worth using Meth on a stock K04 with all the possible mods. A maxed out K04 if you like?

    Eh, confused again! haha. Do you store it in your screenwash tank? Or do you just use that sensor on anotehr tank to let you know when empty?

    Absolutely. K04's are notorius for high exhaust gas temps.

    In fact, water meth is MOST useful on turbos such as the K04, especially when it's highly strung.

    Brings temps down, and will allow for more timing advance.

    The general rule of thumb is 4 degrees extra timing is around 10 BHP power.

    Cooler = better. Better = longer lasting. Longer lasting = happier engine. Happy engine = less stuff breaking.

    Yeah, I didn't bother with routing all the piping to the boot and all that ****.

    I use my screenwash tank to store my water meth 50/50 mix - pump is directly underneath it. Big, completely unmissable and thoroughly annoying warning light when low.

    See post #1287 on this link: http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-forum-8l-chassis/104103-another-hybrid-conversion-thread-26.html

    Hmmm I might look into a kit for next year. I dont want to go too mad with timing and power/torque on my standard internals but bringing down temps is always a good thing.
