Hey guys, did some searching but can't seem to find the part number...can somebody please help
On awesomes site they say the following:
Genuine Audi R8 oil cap - Modified at Awesome to fit all VAG engines
Will the R8 cap not fit as is?
I bought one of fleabay and though it fits, the point it which it is secure means it sits at an angle.
Not explained very well, so I'll try again.
The current oil cap has raised bit to grip on to which runs from left to right. When I put the R8 one on the handle runs diagonally across, so doesn't look quite right.
Be interetsed to kow what Awesome do to them and if it is to rectify this issue?
Mmm , It is the thingy that needs doing
As the strappy jobbie gets in the way
Oooh and Andy said the watzitter needs moving round
Ha ha ha, so what do you do to get the handle to sit in line?
The cap just splits in half and you can position it in 3 different positions for different cars, i had this problem with mine sitting at the wrong angle too but now mines nice and straight.
you basically have to remove the rubber ring from around the outside edge and then pry it all apart with a flat bladed screwdriver, position it as required and snap it back together, and replace the rubber ring.
Does it give R8 performance?
Thanks block - will give that a whirl when I get the car back
Does it sit nice and tight then with this mod just like the original?
Would not like any gaps to let any **** into the engine!
You only separate the cap where it is built in 2 parts anyhow and no there are no gaps left.
Boydie fitted one two weeks ago (see here)
Any issues when fitting it boydie?
I'm sure Boydie got from link I posted few weeks ago as we were saying how sad we were given its hidden anyway all the time but for £20 odd we thought why not, lol, anyway mine fits perfectly not pissed at all nice & tight fit doesnt move at all, here's the link again for seller:
Its just plug and play, I have had no issue's at all and didnt have to modify it!
It sits higher though than the normal oil cap to be honest
How many BHP does it add??
1000 000 BHP!
I have just taken delivery of my Nuespeed Carbon Fibre engine cover and I reckon this will compliment it quite well
I Bought one came last week i just took the old one out and put the new one it. Looks good and straight not on a angle or any thing
so how many horses does the engine cover add then
Looks quite nifty, will look good as I hate how the engine bay looks ever since fitting the Forge intake...
lol, just watch out for the springbok fella or I suppose roadkill nice for a braai, castle lager, wors couldnt get better for me, lol
Wowsa! You sound like a typical Saffer
when you spend a year with no one but hometownies then you certainly pick up the lifestyle huh, lol, loved every minute, miss it to a degree, but next stop Italy & no doubt will be my resting place interms of home anyway
