Happy New Year, as the title says what would guys like to do on your motors in 2009
My plans for Outlaw:
1) Install my S8 engine
2) Install my S4 6-speed tranny
3) Buy and install B7 RS4 front calipers and 365 x 34mm discs, selling my 4-piston S8 Brembos and pads
4) Buy and install B5 RS4 rear brake calipers and discs
5) Buy and install Bilstein PSS9 Coilovers
Go-Tech engine management
312mm brake conversion
Facelift tail lights
Bodywork tidy up
Nothing else as the wife will divorce me and move in with the rabbit
get this bloody 2.0 20v engine finished and installed. been sitting half finished since the summer when child number 2 arrived!
then stick on the GT2871 that is sitting under my desk and see if it works!!
oh and get the arches done
Chip chippety chip chip, chip chip chip.
Finish stripping my A4
I am thinking along the lines of exhaust system, boot lip spoiler and then some minor audio upgrades I have done the head unit I just want to replace the speakers and maybe a sub and amp.
Only small mods so far for me.
some great stuff guys! keep it up i love small mods
You will have to lower it a fair bit even if just for some snaps as I know you dont like too low.
Plans for my car are front end respray, RS4 rear brakes so far. Will see how the dosh is.
New bigger alloys, private plate, glove box aircon retro fit, remap/bluefin, parking sensors, bigger brakes
RS6 Alloy wheels, Front Bumper respray, passenger wing mirror respray and replace the two door trim strips on the passenger side. Gonna get it mopped too to take out some scratches and see if the smart dent repair man can repair a ding in the passenger side rear door. Possibly an Amp and sub in the boot to help the new HU I fit recently.
A more serious list:
- Some airbox love (or possibly a cone filter and heatshield)
- A service
- Bilstein shocks and Eibach springs
- New exhaust
- New wheels
I'm just content that my car is road legal again tbqfh.
I have washed it, I only recently bought it, and its been too cold to have a really good go at Valeting and polishing etc. Still needs a good old polish with a mop
HEHE I thought you were replying to my response , carry on
Sorry, no, that was my first list.
basically tidy it up and get it running right.
fit the cam chain tensioner i've had for 6 months, respray the front bumper, possibly new cat & air mass meter, good service & tune (it's only a 1.8NA so performance isn't an issue, but it is extremely hesitant when pulling away, up until 2k+rpm).
would like to finish it off with a nice set of blue 1/2 alcantara s4 seats, if i can find any!
Hopefully get to keep the car, then its refit the rebuilt Outlaw turbo ( if i can afford it)
Probably should fit the loom,oil feed pipe,and replace the burn pipes first tho
IHI Turbo Upgrade
Mega Squirt Stand Alone ECU
2-Step Anti Lag
Some more Traction some how
