    Ah, I didn't see the link to click through. You're correct. I thought they were the same as the second item you've posted above.

    These are different. They move the hub on the outside of the beam, not the actual beam itself. Therefore these won't affect the spring angles.

    Have you considered "drop plates" that move the hub back, instead of up/down? After a short googletude, it turns out they're called wheel centering plates: https://www.ecstuning.com/News/MKIV_WheelCenteringPlates/

    No water meth. @badger5 was twisting my arm while I was there. However, 50 degree IAT and 20 something timing, I'm happy for now. If I change my mind, I'll look at the IO I have left, and see if I can run it from the ECU.

    Good news - the bolt had come loose. Seal seems fine, so refitted it. Just need some gearbox oil now.

    Thanks. Spoken to Vince, and he's said internals are most likely fine. However, the bolts don't normally come loose, the normally shear. So I'm going to drag it off the trailer today, and see if I can find an hour to pull that out. If not, I'm on holiday next week so it will have to wait until...

    Thanks Nick, I'm pleased, especially as IATs were 50C! Yes, very early. 1 bar boost by 3750RPM, peak of 30psi at 6000, and still has 26psi at the 8300 rev limiter. There was no indication of the loose flange on the dyno, which is kind of good news. When we pulled the car off Bill found all the...

    Yay: :angry: Gearbox flange is loose. Looks like SQS didn't tighten the bolt.

    It's not too hot, so that's OK. Yes, hardware update next year, which will include onboard knock.

    Time to bring this up to date. It looks like a car again, if somewhat dirty (works in the unit created a lot of dust): Plex Knock Monitor installed: I still need to finish the last bit of the set up, but that has to be done on the dyno, as I need a full run through the RPM range with no...

    HI Nick Do you have any pictures of the bumper mount where it attaches to the front wing? I need to do something similair.

    My A3 Quattro

    Slow progress, but progress. The cage is now painted, so refitting everything. Wiring is back in and the car runs. A bit of coil pack bling, plus it fills the gap between the coils and rocker cover: I need a new windscreen as the original broke when the cage came out. Just waiting for...
