what are you doing to your motor in the coming year ?
Finally get my projektzwo body kit sprayed and fitted. Been in the garage for over a year! lol
Jay - Happy New Year bud...... got ya message on Xbox
erm...... no plans other than the FMIC from AH fabrications
Brembo big brakes and arbs are all I need to buy now. Got a room full of bits to fit but it aint gonna happen until I can feel my fingers outside.
Might get stage2 done though as its only £50, not feeling an exhaust though.
Drive it more than 1k miles.
Finish the 2.1 build
Down pipe and system
If money is there then BT
H&R coilovers, Neuspeed ARB's, FMIC, Andy Mac sub!
I forgot lower it and set it up to provoke oversteer
Try and insure it and not be bankrupt come the end of it.
If im not bankrupted after that then:
Service & suspension fixed
Get the front damage fixed
Custom front bumper
Brembos & braided lines
New fogs & lights
Not much really
My plans are forever changing as I'm sure the rest of you guys are, at the mo I'm thinking...
Refurb my 18" BBS splits & finaly get them on the car.
Full vinal wrap in White/Cream.
- New windscreen (as it just cracked!) aero wipers
- silicone tip
- braded brake lines and new fluid
- iPhone car kit
- suspension if the shocks finally give up the ghost
1. Roof rail to be sprayed (14th Jan)
2. Silicone T.I.P
3. Pipewerx 3"downpipe and sports cat
4. Possibly JBS Manifold as mine has a hairline crack in it
5. Timing belt/ waterpump
6. Dyno run at Ajec Racing to see if its any better than 221.4bhp
7. Stage 2 to APR map
make it go faster
4 bar fuel reg
milltex cat back
stage 2 revo map
then see how cash is
stage 3 revo
Probably sell it (soon)
drive it for most the year then sell it , hopefully buy an 8p s3 if funds allow after buying my flat and saving to get married
Yes, selling it is another option of mine, I'm not using it much, and I fancy something with more BHP for my occasional use.
Opposite problem for me, putting to many miles on it to quickly and need something more economical
need to sell it to afford first flat, really dont want to
if i didnt sell things on my list include:
silicone tip non esp (o the joy)
forge splitter r dv/recirc
bmc cda induction kit
tidy up engine bay
possible rebuild over 2010 winter
that is if i dont sell and its a big if at the moment
selling it, getting a leon fr tdi ( or any vag tdi) for a bit then get a mini JCW by the end of year hopefully!
replace all balljoints and bushings in the front wishbones
replace all crank case breather hoses and valve
full geometery setup and do corner weights
sell it and buy a m3 CSL:icon_thumright:
get a golf mk 4 tdi pd 150,chip it and you will have a quick and economical car.
That is on the list too, but this leon is going cheap as it may have a turbo issue, vnt mechanics sticking apperently? so could haggle him down to under £4500
Firstly finish of mapping and tweaking so that I can get a proper run on a dyno to base line my power...
Then... fix the stuff that breaks
Passenger side window motor repair.
Basic valet to the car = vacuum and wash.
Gonna sell mine, lets someone else enjoy it
I too may be selling come the end of the year really really don't want to sell but im currently applying for the RAF and if successful I'll be taking a 50% pay cut. Buggar.
sort out a couple of issues, new front tyres, then i would like a fmic, downpipe and sports cat or more likely a new clutch!
Loads of things I'd like to do, probably won't do any of them though
got the house bug instead, rather plough my money it to that...
I can live with the car as it is
after having a expensive december on my car (£1500), i made my mind up that i wasn't goin to spend any more, but things have changed already.my friend selling a forge engine cover, relocation kit samco,top hoses samco,carbon oil cap and chrome charge pipe all only a few months old for 190 to me.i cant resist,this will finish my engine bay off as i fitted a catch can last weekend.
No plans for the S3, but the Ibiza is going to be broken in late spring as it's got past the point of economic repair.
To replace it I have a 2 litre 16v ABF engined Seat Cordoba SX 'coupe' which is going into the garage in a fortnight for:
Polish & port the head
TSR 4 branch manifold
The car was previously owned by a mate who has already sorted the chassis and handling out - so I'm tweaking the power. Hoping for somewhere around 175 - 180 bhp in a car that will weigh around a tonne. That's about 40 more than the Ibiza so should be noticeable.
Haven't cleaned it for over a month
Cleaning it later today though.
When I actually have funds:
Dual exhaust like the S6
Body kit (New shape s3 style front bumper)
Led front fogs
Devil eye headlights
Double Din headunit
Replace distorted bose sub
DV moved to cold side
Samco hoses (in yellow if possible)
Cold feed induction pipe
19" rs4 alloys
Respray (either same colour or white)
Think that's about it.
For me it will be:-
AH Fabs Intercooler, been fitted as we speak along with bigger injectors..
New external wastegate going on this week as other ones buggered..
Turn then to suspension, ARBs are on so just some bilsteins..
Save up for a new bottom end, rods, valves etc etc
Big Turbo, I would like to see a min of 400 bhp
Early this year I plan to do the following to the S3;
1. Fit 007p DV (still sitting in box)
2. Fit panel filter
3. Custom Code or Revo Stage 1 (still undecided)
4. Silicone TIP
5. KW Springs and Shocks kit
6. Tie bars (Awesome or Forge)
7. Uprated ARBs
8. RaceDiagostics LiquidS3
Then turn my attentions to getting the MG on track;
1. Engine rebuild
2. Fix bodywork damage caused by dad reversing in to me!
3. New sticky Yokos
4. Possibly Revolution 4 spokes
5. Tracking and alignment
Then back to the S3;
9. Subtle window tints
10. Maybe BBS LM (reps)
11. Custom exhaust (turbo back)
12. Maybe FMIC
13. Stage 2 map
Damn, seeing it all typed out like that makes it obvious I need a better paying job!
Pat.....let me know how it feels once ya get it back.... as in massive difference etc
think i might buy an s3 seems like everyone is selling them. i could have my pick
Same here, want something modded though. Maybe BT conversion, or Hybrid, with brakes and suspension.
By the looks of it, sell up and get a diesel
