    Solid prop shaft donut ???

    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...

    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...

    aluminium vbands?

    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.
