    when i joined i said i wasn't going to make a 'build' thread as not a lot was going to be done to this one, unlike my old bora.

    this is still the case but i had a little thread on uk-audis as a record of what has been done, but they've recently upated the site and i cannot get on with it at all so i'll transfer what i have done so far.

    spec - A4 TFSI permanent quattro DTM LTD edition made in 2006 to celebrate audis success in DTM racing

    as i bought it - 220bhp k03 turbo recaro half leathers and DTM specific carbon extras

    first things first - new fuel pump tappet and cam chain and tensioner to keep things sweet

    and after the work spruce the bay up a little

    the rotis came with tyres but size wasn't ideal so i changed them for 215/35's and tweaked the ride height a little

    and purchased a new reg from DVLA

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    after having a lot of bits and bobs on order from UK and USA they started trickling through

    the day of exhaust fitting came

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    when i removed the original cat the wastegate flap had disintegrated from vibration

    [​IMG]

    all i could do at that piont was weld the flap back to the arm....

    fitment of the milltek went well until it came to the tailpipes

    [​IMG]

    they stuck out far too much so had to trim an inch off each tailpipe trim

    [​IMG]

    they still didn't sit evenly in the cutouts in the bumper so i had to cut a bracket off that regulated the distance between the pipes and weld a correct sized rod in between

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    the left pipe would not sit high enough no matter how much tweaking so i had to splice the tailpipe trim and reweld

    as i was gearing up for the K04 swap i spoke to MRC who advised FMIC - the kits i had seen weren't too impressive, either required bumper chopping or losing the crash bar, neither was an option

    i measured up and went for a core intended for another audi

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    then set about mocking up custom hard boost pipes with a variety of ally bends

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    mocked them all up to size and correct path making no contact and gave them to my ally welder

    also decided to weld the s3 dv flange to the boost pipe

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    painted and fitted

    wow - quite a response over the weekend :0

    mancdan - it's a vag forum. i think the covers got thrown out, it wasn't 'til i removed them i saw they were ebay copies.

    Macdoon - thanks

    Stui - yes ebay item, i was after the more open holes but it's only available from Australia at the mo with £145 postage

    Morgan46 - yes, not a lot in comparison with my last car :)

    AudiB7Jay - they have 12mm spacers on the rear, all allignment is stock but obviosly had to have tracking done. i didn't take measurements, just lowered it so the front and rear arch to tyre distance was even and there was no contact.

    P.S Roti's will be for sale next year

    Chris - i was told to fit S4 fronts all you need is discs pads and S4 carriers, i fitted the carriers to my DTM calipers and popped the discs and pads on but the very top and bottom of the caliper contacted the disc. i could have ground a bit out but i picked up the proper calipers for cheap enough and bolted them on.

    ANDY - thanks, i still have my dead one sat on the bench :(

    CHEZ - thats quite a compliment, thank you

    Sewell - thanks, do you have a thread? i'd like to see a yellow one

    Jez - see reply to chris above RE brakes :)

    Molnbowman - i had my last car 'show car' bora up for sale but decided to break it so when something sold i'd treat the A4.

    BA4 - thanks, i need some after my turbo died

    Olly - thanks, and thanks for spelling 'Olly' in the correct way :)

    Do you have a guide, or a link to the one you used to get rid of those awful orange reflectors?

    Jez - i just went at it :yes: i think i must have seperated and redone my bora headlights in different styles about 6 times.

    Olly - thanks, i just went for the leave them off with them chrome / orange bulbs

    Solaris - my turbo died a short time after my first MRC mapping session, so i went to turbo dynamics and bought a brand new item and had hybrid work so it should be the same spec as yours now. ordered a new K revision thrust sensor and RS4 pressure regulator yesterday, next will be uprated intank pump then WMI. i'm hoping to crack 400bhp with the hybrid.

    i'll also be making a tubular crash bar so i can expose the full fmic and will have to buy / make a more open grill - remove or reduce number plate plinth.

    ANDY - nearly missed you out :0 it's from an ebay kit for a B6, i looked at a lot of cores from jap to RS500 but this fitted my dimension needs best. the hard pipes, silicon joiners and clamps were all binned and custom pipework made up. the pipes that came with the kit were ridiculously narrow :haha:
