What are your thoughts on a solid prop shaft donut?
I got this made, its about 20mm smaller in diameter than the OEM one. Reused the steel inserts from the OEM donut, so the drive shaft bolts don't eat into the the aluminium.
Reason : OEM one was starting to fall apart and the solid one will...
Is the any benefit of fitting upper and lower rear adjustable tie bars on a S3?
I have a certain big turbo TT in my possession and busy swapping parts out with my S3.
My S3 and the TT both have adjustable tie bars, so wondering if there's any benefit in fitting them both on my S3.
So this happened.....
and the problem....
So much for "upgrading" from crappy hose and hose clamps to Aeroquip. Aeroquip rated for 250psi !!! In their dreams !!! My oil pressure is max 70psi.
Got industrial hose now with the hydraulic crimped on fittings.
Thought I would share......
I bought a wide-band me7.5 from a 2001 passat 1.8t to use as a spare ecu.
Reason I bought the passat ecu is that they are cheap on eBay and my thinking was its me7.5 and my S3 is me7.5, so in theory the passat ecu should work in my S3 after reflash.
I bought that...
Think I had a brain fart this evening while working on my S3 cambelt timing.
I think if have worked out a way to use the oem 1.8t cambelt tensioner as a manual tensioner.
I have spaced out the bolt that goes through the pulley, with a washer. This prevents the shoulder of bolt from protruding...
Just thought I would plant the seed and see where things go :wacko:
Mk7 Gti turbo orientation is the same way as 8L S3, but it bolts directly onto the head as there is no manifold on the new TSI engines. The "manifold" is incorporated into the head and is cooled by coolant.
APR are claiming...
Found this on the interweb, thought it might be of interest to someone someday

Has anyone used aluminium vbands to seal boost pipes?
I am thinking about vbanding the turbo outlet on my turbo, so I can get the charge pipe to sit a bit lower and also do away with the silicone coupler and clamps.
Was wondering if anyone has done a rear seat delete on their A3/S3. Seen my mates TT with the rear seat delete kit done. It looks pretty cool.
Would be a nice place to put the battery, stereo system amp, wmi setup and a windscreen washer fluid tank, all covered up by a false floor.

Helping a mate with his TT, the car cranks over but does not start. There is spark so I assume there is no fuel being injected into the cylinders.
Did a full scan and found the above fault code.
I have searched the...
So had some drama, was driving around and all was well, slowed down to a stop street. Pulled off and only made wastegate pressure, also noticed a fair bit of rattling from the engine. So drove home slowly.
Checked for faults and found these - WTF!

My buddy is looking at putting a GTX28 in his TT and buying an AEB or AGU head but can only get a complete AEB engine or AGU engine.
Are there any differences between AEB head and AGU?
Are all AEB engines from the 058 block?
My idea is for him to buy the AGU engine, take the head...
