Door card cloth

So the doorcard on the S2 have been degrading over time and the backing has been breaking away:

As you see above I managed to get hold of the origional material from Audi Tradition

Next task was to drill off the plastic welding for the door pockets

Ready for action:

There's been a lot going on with the S2 in the background and its finally back from a full paint job.
Yes it was done last year however I wasn't happy with the colour match so best way to get around that is to have the whole lot done.
It come out very good and I'm impressed by the Bodyshop I used - they get my recommendation.

Nice to see the car is still solid under the body kit.

Here is a video:

Cylinder head -
I bought another 7a head and had it converted to ABY spec (the other head had a tight cam bearing which will get fixed and kept spare) with new guides, all high points machined down, valves lapped in and skimmed

I will install the new inlet ABY cam (purchased from AT) with a 7a exhaust cam

Maxx datastream

So the Maxx ecu has a nice feature whereby it can datastream over bluetooth.
Bought an 8" tablet and made it removal by installing Neodymium magnets behind switch blanks

RS2 spec on Maxx ecu:

To get a base line of the current spec with the maxx I went back to the dyno:

Running 1.75bar (previously 1.85) and now making 370hp / 515nm (wouldn't want anymore than this on stock rods)
