    Just been given until the 21st off work so hopefully I can crack on with getting this lot on...

    Stroked 2.0 AGU (in progress now, finally) with 9.5:1 pistons
    GT2871R
    IE inlet manifold
    044 pump + IE surge tank (for the above)
    Tial QR valve (just to see what it's like)
    SPA Design boost + fuel pressure gauge
    Ground Control camber + caster top mounts
    IDF/USRT tubular front control arms
    Replace bushes

    Possibly:
    H&R RSS coilovers
    TFSI coils

    Then thrash it daily. It won't be everyones ideal daily as it'll be almost fully rose jointed and if I get the RSS coilovers, mega firm. It already has pretty solid engine mounts which lose a fair bit of refinement.

    Pipewerx is a better bet JayP

    Thanks for the advice but to be honest i've already booked in at Awesome to have the Milltek fitted, the deal i got was too good to refuse.

    Why would you say the Pipewerx is better?

    I'll try the Milltek, if i dont like it i may change it.

    I have a Milltek and like it. Not too loud so I don't look a nob but sounds good. Every custom exhaust I've heard that doesn't cost the earth, generally sound ****e.

    Most of my plans for the new year are chassis related, so not really relevant for this forum, I'll still update in my build thread though.

    Engine wise I'm not really sure, plan will be to get the chassis good and see what sort of power I think it'll actually be able to put down properly, then spec it to give that amount of power as efficiently/smoothly/responsively as possible. Knowing me expect everything to be custom and a bit weird haha.

    Also if all goes well I'll probably be looking for a B5 A4 (TDI quattro) as a daily driver/tow car too.

    I'll try and make it along to a few Audi-sport events/meets as well.

    For 2013 my plan is to firstly get my car back on the road after the gearbox went boom!

    Then-

    New windscreen
    Replace the passenger front wing (tiny bit of rust is starting to appear)
    Get the front bumper resprayed + wings and bonnet
    Full detail and paint enhancement
    XCarlink Iphone adapter
    Welly FMIC
    Cat back Powerspeed custom made exhaust
    Stage 2 CC Remap

    Plus a few other little bits and pieces but I won't bore you lot with them :)

    Not much planned for 2013 for me as i did more than i expected to to my car in 2012 lol.

    First off its booked into Audi for Jan the 7th for its recall so should get 4 new coil packs for FREE :)

    Still keeping my eye out for some nice brembos preferably an LCR setup but some 4pot Boxster S rears will work nicely too.

    fit my poly top mounts finally.

    Get it on a proper dyno to see what its running.

    Cambelt will need doing at some point plus a haldex service.

    Depending on how it lasts possibly a new clutch too (probably the Awesome GTI heavy duty one)

    possibly relace the OEM cat back exhaust with a milltek or similar

    Possibly either a Badger 5 or R-tech remap to utilise the mods more effectively than the revo stage 2 software.

    If i come into i nice wad of cash then it will be large port head, relentless V3 mani, Rods and a hybrid K04 :)

    Oh and a good detailing session

    All I want is to find someone to fit a new clutch for me for a decent price, I have all the parts they just need fitting.

    Any offers drop me a PM, I got a huge garage loads of tools and will pay cash and help out if anyone is interested in earning some £$£$£

    Mine has just had 12 months tax and MOT oil change and new oil pick up pipe and replaced a split PVC hose. Full service and remap hopefully in January then try and sort my BOSE amp out as having to fade to rear speakers due to dry solder problems then fix whatever decides to break in the meantime.
