    ERROR TIME!!! Can anyone please shed some light on these ones?

    I get a negative deviation code nowadays - i put this toward a boost leak as i top at at 1 bar when i should be at around 1.5 bar (my fuel consumption has also gone to shizen)

    Also would these codes go hand in hand?

    00812 - Brake Pressure Release Solenoid (F84)
    Possible Causes
    • Switch for Brake Recognition (F83) faulty
    • Wiring to Switch for Brake Recognition (F83) faulty
    • Brake Booster faulty
    Possible Solutions
    • Check Switch for Brake Recognition (F83)
    • Check Wiring to Switch for Brake Recognition (F83)
    • Check Brake Booster
    i've had this code show up once before and i cleared it. didn't come back but obviously has

    and ......

    01314 - Engine Control Module (this is in the AWD module)
    01314 - Engine Control Module: No Communications
    Possible Causes
    • CAN-Databus Wiring/Connectors from/to Engine Control Module faulty
    • Fault(s) stored in Engine Control Module
    • Engine Control Module recently flashed or re-mapped
    Possible Solutions
    • Check CAN-Databus Wiring/Connectors from/to Engine Control Module
    • Check Measuring Value Blocks (MVB)
      • Usually Measuring Value Blocks (MVB) 125+ show the current Communication Status
    This one is new. Does it relate to the one above? along with this the ESP cluster light turned on but went away after leaving the car for work and restarting it it didn't turn back on.
    I have got a new brake light switch so it shouldn't be that... Haldex... well i hope it's not offline! It's a blue one!

    Any help appreciated :)

    So a couple of days later and i've done a re-scan... i have no codes anywhere.

    What the hell! LOL

    I guess i will leave it for now... update time

    ... a couple of little things i've done

    First up finally installing my mic for handsfree use of the HU. Hacked away at the dash and added a grommet where it now lives.
    P1310350.jpg
    P1310352.jpg P1310351.jpg P1310353.jpg

    Previous photos have shown Nogz got new shoes. The pattern is Jap spec 5x114.3 so got some custom adaptors made. They are mint and i highly recommend this guy (for anyone reading this in Aus). Rears are just a tad wider than the stock ones ;) Running staggered 8" front and 9" back.
    I've found that options in this fitment are much nicer than 5x100 - more race/lightweight rims available.
    P1310540.jpg P1310542.jpg P1310544.jpg P1310545.jpg

    And some not so little things...

    AGU head that i want to port out and polish to help the new setup breathe a little better + turbo (ball bearing) rebuild kit
    P1310578.jpg P1310580.jpg

    Going to be switching to T25 setup
    P1310569.jpg P1310570.jpg P1310572.jpg P1310571.jpg P1310575.jpg P1310576.jpg P1310577.jpg P1310573.jpg

    ...and to be shown off in all it's glory thanks to the top mount. I'm going to port the waste gate before putting things together and need to get rotating assembly balanced then building a GTX spec turbo.

    Any reason you didn't put it in the original position mate?

    I stuck mine in the overhead light fitting,guessing maybe with your mods you have a louder engine/exhaust note.

    original position being.... where?

    I never had one previous to this.

    It was one of those that can clip onto the visor but i thought i would want it smack bang in front of my mouth so I've integrated it there :)
    No complaints yet of people not being able to hear me and text by talking is pretty accurate which is good!

    There's a place in the central overhead interior light fitting where an original would be placed mate,that's where I put mine but I expect your position would give better 'pickup',just wanted mine hidden.

    - couple more bits to add to the parts list - v-band hot-side adaptor, braided oil / coolant lines, sanding wheels for porting
    P1310591.jpg

    - swapping out the ball bearing plastic cages for bronze ones. Apparently used for race applications - i'm using it for longevity
    P1310592.jpg
    P1310593.jpg

    - this holds the BB cartridge in place and the little hole is the oil feed
    P1310595.jpg

    - cart. pressed in and placing compressor side oil seal

    - o-ring to seal off BB stuff from compressor wheel and loc-tite for the 3 little 2mm Allen bolts that keep the plate in place
    P1310600.jpg
    P1310611.jpg

    - another oil seal. this one for the turbine side
    P1310603.jpg

    - turbine heat shield
    P1310614.jpg

    - placing the turbine/shaft in its new home

    - turbine pressed in

    I guess they would be plug and play for pre facelift BT definitely NOT for facelift models.

    ... as you can see quite a bit of modification needed LOL

    Thank you Ian.

    May plug styles are UE version, so they are just on my S3, I'll check and then I'll tell you about as confirmation.

    PS:

    Did you adopted LED lights as all other external/internal lights of your S3 aswell?

    Did you choose a partiular brand light or a general one? I tested many led brands, but they weren't affable enough usually. Thank you.

    Probably not until the new year. Lots of porting work needs to be done before fitting everything.

    So i noticed a coolant leak just over a week ago. Looked up to see that it was more than likely coming from the water pump. So a bit of maintenance needed to be done. Along with this some other things were revealed!

    Leaky charge pipe - fixed
    [​IMG]


    #1 spark plug looking good (i think?)
    [​IMG]

    Once the lower timing belt cover was off you can really see the extent of the leak!!!

    [​IMG]

    And the replacement setup - semi manual tensioner (getting rid of the hydraulic setup which is more prone to failure than this setup)

    [​IMG]

    New against Old

    [​IMG]

    Rusty as :/

    Timing belt going on... but not like this!

    That's better!

    lining up marks and making small adjustments so belt goes on correctly
    P1310647.jpg

    Checking the tensioner/roller is correct. all you need to do is line up the notches - so simple!
