PD's A3 - Build thread

Hi guys my name is PD and I'm from South Africa,

I recently joined your forum and I thought I'd share my pride and joy.

I've owned my car a little over a year and a half and have slowly modified it to where it is now, but I still have many more planned mods. I thought I'd update this thread in the stages I performed mods to where it is now.

Please feel free to comment! And enjoy!

When I got her she came with 126 000 km with full service history and some minor mods including:
-Colour coded bumpers
-S4 avus Rims
-lowered springs
-2.5" downpipe and exhaust

I immediately installed an uprated dumpvalve (forge replica) and fitted a k&n flat panel filter.

When I got her:

Installed head unit (trim surround came later):

6000k xenon's in the main beams and fogs:

At this stage I started preparing for stage 2 software

Forge TIP installed (what a mission!):

Sprayed and carbon wrapped the interior:

Then did my stage 2 software and added some stickers for the extra kw's:

I thinks that's enough pics and updates for now! Enjoy!

So the next mod I did was FMIC... Did this DIY with a piping kit I got off ebay. I had to modify the piping a bit as it was for a golf 4.

Here are the results:

Piping:

Getting the pipes in the right places:

Starting to look good:

Cooler behind the bumper:

I didn't want to modify the crash bar too much so I made these brackets to mount it:

All installed without the bumper (was cool driving around like this without the bumper :rock:):

very stealthy install

Only think is I think you should have gone bigger.... being a k04 turbo and living where its hot all the time, i dont think the cooler can handle the heat tbh.

Thanks man! Appreciate it... I didn't really want the boost pipes sticking out by my fog lights...

i still only have my standard k03s installed... And I thought it wouldn't help getting a bigger cooler as even now the entire cooler isn't getting airflow?

but yes I want WMI to help with the heat...

lool sorry i thought this was an S3:ninja:

That cooler will be fine for a k03s then. I run a massive welly cooler on my k03s and i havent seen or noticed and cons with fitting it. only super cool intake temps :)

LOL I get that a lot actually... People thinking its an S3... (Think its the Avus wheels...) Take it as a complement though!

Have you felt no extra lag or anything like that? I can always go bigger later with bigger turbo hehe
