    yeah and dims witht he dash wiring too,lol

    Not 100% but better than hoofing great holes. If i were to do it again i would slightly lower the LED display to make viewing from the drivers seat a little clearer, and maybe shield the back light LED somehow to lower the glare. Its nothing much but if i were being critical.

    I set them back to make LED itself more hidden and to make the finish neater. I have just tried to take some pics from my eyeline whilst in the drivers seat, not the best. but as soon as they are uploaded will wadge em on here

    Good work mate.. I like that a lot.

    Need to get the left hand one reading 24 PSI now (preferably on a GT40 turbo).

    ROFL, aye that would only provide a piffling 600hp though.

    What you really need is TWO GT40R's and 4 more cylinders, that way you can get a nice round 1200hp.

    Loving the double-DIN headunit. I had to go out to my car to check what you'd done to get it in... I was thinking "all the stuff's there that's in mine, so how does it fit in?" - Now I can see the ashtray has moved down a lot! Was it a hard job?

    Giles, it's a complete console swap from a 2001 S4 with double DIN, its all different, the outer,cage, climate, ashtray, and even the gearlever trim.

    Anyone know if the oil pump on the Ajl engine is the same as the AEB/APU engine? It's still an 058 block isn't it? ETKA doesn't seem to list the AJL for some reason..... grrrr
