After what you called them ???
shhhh!! that wasnt me, it was my twin brother lol! ill jsut apologise on his behalf!
Here are a few more pics from today
Found a split breather hose under the intake mani which i think could have been the cause of my lumpy idle.
Pic of my boot at the moment with all my parts and tools sitting in it waiting to be put back together.
My new audi Recirc valve 710N TT style should be fine for what i want at the moment.
lol, u got enough parts there for a 2nd car! hmm....lets see what i need...
thanks for the pics mate
The new hoses have arrived and i managed to get them in blue
Cam belt fitted by a mechanic friend for £35 quid result
Belts all on and cam covers back on
I love when I get new bits, I'm hoping for something in the next few days
Yeah its very exciting just hoping it has arrived for when you get home
What you expecting?
Here is my new powder coated rocker and inlet mani
I confused with the hex bolts though as i had three sets left and mixed up in different lengths, i have some short and then two sets of long and i cant remember which length hold in the coil packs, never mind
If any one can enlighten me then please do.
Looking good and I like the cam cover.
Agree with you Doc! mate that blue is the color i wanted and the inlet looks top mate! excellent choice of colors.
cant wait to see it all together, cars gonna be faster and look sweet under the hood!
good work mate!
im getting anxiety attacks now PMSL!!! i want my stuff! DAMN YOU ECS!
thanks for the pics, keep em coming!
any word on the nology stuff? or the group buy on milltek CATs?
Have you got any prices yet for your powder coating ?
No news on the GBs yet just testing the water i want to get the best deal arround not just fo with who ever sais they can do it.
And i have completely forgotten about nology i spent way to much so far and i still have the coilovers, wheels, bumpers, skirts, re-spray, brakes, turbo back exhaust to do yet
Nop, spent that much on parts alone i dont really have much left ill have to get it done later.
no probs mate, that works for me in away i can save up abit especially and if you got a bunch of GBs going might be able to put my name down for ALL! lol
wow, u still got alot of big things to get, i think the only big things i need are the injectors, CAT, maybe a full system. and all exterior mods which will come much later.
ive got some Koni sports springs 35mm or 40mm cant remember all 4 brand new. your welcome to them you can stick them on until you get your coilovers?
Thanks but the effort that it takes to change them ill go big bang straight away i can only be ***** to take the suspension off once away.
no probs mate :icon_thumright:
i think im more excited bout your project than mines PMSL!
Once you start getting things fitted mate you will start to get excited
what parts? excited?
oh i kno which one, my K04 project! the parts awesome took 3 weeks to deliver and the parts ECS are still holding on to lol! its been that long i forgot LMAO!
itll be christmas soon, i should write to father christmas ive got a better chance of him delivering them quicker!
LOL well i hope my tubby gets to me by the weeked so i can start putting it back together as i am having enough now with borrowing works van and cars etc. I have some more pics of things that have arrived which ill post later
Going to pick up the new turbo now from parcel force sweet, i have to drive to Charlton though.......

Mark make a pit stop and nip round to Docs for some Tea and biscuits
Ohhh man there are some road works going on what a pain
But after two weeks here it is
Im going to start putting it all back together now, am still witing for my gasget though so i still can not put the inlet mani back on.
Here are some pics for the pips i bought for the FMIC install
My NewSouth Performance power gasket arrived as well the neighbour just brought it back round. Sweeeeet

*UPDATE* Here are some progress pics the car is at the specialist at the moment as it was running and now its not
I shall post up a few more once its fixed and back at home
car looks sweeeeeet! the rocker goes with the hoses we bought! good work matey! keep the pics coming!
Markey whats the size of the vacuum pipe you got running from manifold to recirc valve? And wheres best place to get from?
Need one for mine as its not in the best condition.
It came with the hoses that i got, its just normal vacuum pipe i think the majority are all the same size when you ask for it.
Markey, did you get hit with any nasty import taxes in the end, regarding the turbo?
Keep up the good work
Yeah charged 13 quid for somthing and 30 for somthing else very annoying but still mucho cheaper than getting one over hear even a K03 for that matter
Wow, what a thread, very inspiring!
There is plenty more to come next is coilovers and wheels, with new ARBs and full control arm sets
very nice shiney motor you made there
Cheers dude im trying my best i just had some time off work and needed somthing to tinker with
Good stuff, where you going to get it remapped? I was doing some work on my car today too!
