Thanks alot Gops! I would love to find a set of Brembo's here in SA
Getting my parts from a friend tomorrow, he helped me out with my DP flange, oil return and EGT Bung! Awesome work as always and Excellent service!
We did some planning on the flange and decided to go with the stock layout with a bit more meat to weld on, 76mm will be oval on exit.
Tomorrow I can finish my oil return and then double check everything before she gets towed for downpipe! Happy days
The drawing he did for the parts to be cut.
And some playtime on the lathe resulted in my EGT bung, Ill use a m12x1.25 Tap after welding it on.
Collected my car from branchworx yesterday, and Im really happy with what I found when I lifted my bonnet...
As per my request they fabricated my downpipe in 76mm, no stories, no excuses, and it looks pretty amazing!
Just snapped a few pics this morning quick, so close to finishing the car now
And my screamer pipe
Thats it for now!
Heat shielding... all I'm saying...
Haha, yes Sir, still getting there
Started her this week, will give her a test drive this weekend, small touches to be done tonight and tomorrow!
This is what the engine bay looks like currently, still need to powder coat my intake and boost pipe.
And back to reciculating DV
Looking damn good Gizmo
Awe sidey !!
Excellent work mate... looks well tidy...
Coming along very nicely, loving the black and yellow detailing.
Keep up the good work :thumbsup:
Im looking for a brembo setup next year perhaps.
So my wideband lambda probe as failed so not driving or mapping currently. Have wrapped my downpipe and screamer pipe, just awaiting a Turbo blanket then she can be used daily again!
Also sold of the Rotor Reps and tonight I will be collecting my 18x9J Turbines, which will be bolted onto a 30mm & 25mm adapters next week hopefully , should give me a offset of ET27 at the rear and ET22 up front.
Will post picture of them tonight !
Alright, got my wheels back from the painters... Might not be everyone's cup of tea but I love the outcome.
Need to get some rubber on them and then fit.
My adapters are complete.
And Pics of the wheel colour.
Thats it for now.
does it spool better now?
I dig the colour, its fresh and gona turn a lot of heads, a lot of people are gona say other wise, for me lime green would have been boss!!!!! My track wheels will go green
Nope, the car is not driving currently until I replace the widebnad lambda probe, AFR is going sto 13-14 under boost, and Still get the b1 s1 malfunction in circuit. Probe will be replaced next month and then Ill get back to it. Did however have a leaking wastegate, not sure if I stated that in a recent update.
Thanks alot man :thumbsup:Your current A3 > your old one
Bwaahahahahahahha looking at this one I realized my last one was a butcher shop fml
Well over my holiday period I got some more work done on the car...
I have fitted a Bosch inline 190LP/H inline fuel pump which got my AFR back inline, also gives me sometime to save for a new intank replacement pump ! Got my NLS and LC working on my current file which just increased my exhaust leak as well , got some rubber around my wheels and fitted with adapters. Also got a powerflex bushkit from Sidey for my dogbone mount which We installed after tapping some fresh thread in the gearbox
This morning I need to remove turbo and insert a new gasket, and also take the car tomorrow to have a support bracket / brace welded on my downpipe to bolt onto the block.
Some pics of the above mentioned!
Thats it for now!
Top looking car. Different but done nicely.
I love that mate!!! Wheels look awesome!
Shiiit dude how sick does that colour look on the black! I love it dude well done bud
Love the colour combination.
Not a bad looking S3. not sure about the wheels. just sell them to me. Keep up the good work.
Awesome colour combination. Liking the wheels, not sure on the yellow in the bay.
Thanks you for the input everyone.
Small update, managed to source a .7 bar WG spring finally and got my Paper filter from honda .
Will be doing some work on the car again tonight, rewrapped my downpipe while it was out as well, and perhaps try get a Log to check MAF G/S.
Stunning car mate!
Thank you s3 clarke !
Another Update, Sprayed some plasti dip on my s2000 filter to make it suit my engine bay, Also did a little DIY turbo heatshield instead of purchasing a turbo blanket.
Will fit tonight after work.
Got my shield in, and filter installed. Wanting to do a log buts its been raining the whole weekend
Must say Its good to hear my DV again with a cone filter installed !
So neat hey! Love the colours

That is one savage car u have there! Love it! What sort of bhp is she putting out?
Im not to sure what my power output is as yet, still got some tweaks to do in my map and then I will put her on a dyno, but this weekend was the first time I could actually use the current power with some open road and it feels great
