So decided to take a look
At the wiring today have most of the 3.2 loom fitted but have a few plugs I can’t figure out @<tuffty/> any ideas ? the 1st two are cable tied to the ground going to the Alternator I think blue could be the bonnet catch connector not sure on red

the other is on the part of the loom with the after run pump and coolant sensor

Next headache wiring the injectors the oem 3.2 injector plugs have one big and a smaller wire where as the new injector pigtails had to same size wires and none of the colours match, I’m guessing the bigger one is power and the smaller is signial and also wonder if what side of the plug matters or can they go anyway round?

One plug (bigger one I think) should be the SAI (which you look to have removed)... can't remember what the other maybe... possibly the PAS pressure switch or the after run pump... everything else plugged in ok?

You could also buzz the pins through to the ECU plug and then look up whats connected to it

<tuffty/>
That’s a bit technical for me, yeah every thing at the front is connected that I can see so I haven’t a clue had me stumped, could be pas switch I’ve not noticed that so maybe hidden away somewhere
Yeah front knock is connected
So is pas pump , Alternater and everything round there, will have to look at buzzing it out and see what it would be

I removed a couple of plugs from my loom... one was the SAI and another was the PCV valve jobber on the OE inlet... can't recall the others as I just connected what I needed to and removed what was left whilst adding in other stuff for the N75, airtemp and MAP

Off the shelf bumper for an a3 not sure if the rear arches are the same on s3 don’t want to make the car look max powerish would want something oem looking but this would be a easy fix to cut the holes in right spot for the r32 exhaust, might just leave that idea and go for a valved exhaust don’t know why but r32 seem to sound better than the videos I’ve seen of 3.2 s3’s and I do love that r32 sound

I think the spacing looks all wrong when people do this.

The white S3 further up nailed it perfectly

I think that someone had that on Facebook not sure if it’s a rs4 b7 diffuser or just looks like it

I think it was, he custom made it. He had a build thread but I can’t remember his username

As some of you may know I have issues! I’ve gone and bought a full set of mk4 r32 half leather seats and also the engine,manifolds ,gearbox, looms, ecu with full history, why you ask tbh was only after wiper arms but seen a nice golf clipper and just fancied doing a v6 (maybe supercharged) one , so the fancy rear bumper and Lsd will be put on tha back burner and just get the gearbox with selector forks and 4th gear support done and the monster gear set
 
You are a sucker for punishment I’m sure that’ll be a nice build and pretty dam quick, those Golf Clippers don’t weigh much!

You’ll have to post your progress on that build here as well.

You aiming to get your S3 up and running by AITP mate? Only 4-5 months to go I think.

Just getting a few quotes for respray as the bonnet, front bumper, rear bumper and roof rails are all a bit tacky, I’m told they can just do an “over spray” so windows don’t have to come out so shouldn’t cost to much but all Exterior plastics will be taken off as I have all new bumper, grills and inserts and the carbon fibre plastics ,

So managed to get a day on the car today, got the injectors wired up fuel regulator and lines are finished now also got the sump removed and fitted a return for the turbo drain when tightening the sump
Back up the hex bit fell out of the screwdriver and has managed to go into clucth housing so need to get a magnet and see if I can fish it out if not will have to take the gearbox off

Can't you just remove the protective metal plate between the lower part of the gearbox & the sump? I've had it happen to me a cpl of times when refitting the sump!

Didn’t think off that, other than the alternator and starter motor is there anything else in the engine bay that should have a ground wire ran to it ?
