    I've got a set of The new rs4 replicas coming for it and
    i've drilled the airbox so it now goes vroom cha cha cha when you rev it :eyebrows:
    I'm planning on drastically lowering it pretty soon :o.k:

    It's no quattro those badges are off the car now cause they were annoying me :lmfao:i took those pics last week :laugh:
    It's the first time i've ever pulled an engine out of a car and replaced it................. and it still hasn't went bang yet which is always a good sign :o.k:

    Looks like you did well for £750!

    How difficult was it replacing the engine? I did my timing belt, etc and that wasn't TOO bad... but just thinking about building up a spare ready to go in.

    Low is the way to go...

    It wasn't to difficult............... the only problems i had were i broke 2 water flanges at the back of the head 1 of the old engine taking it out and 1 off the replacement putting it in :ermm: and i blew the battery as the power cable going to the starter is black and i assumed it was an earth lead :lmfao:
    If your going to do it my advice would be take alot of pictures to remind yourself where things go :sm4:

    When i lower it if it don't rub going over speed bumps it'll not be low enough :yes:
