Pictures, we like pictures lolEventually got round to fitting my rear Bilstein bump stops.
Also fitted a pair of Grayson spring assistors to the rear springs to help when towing. Doesn't seem to have effected the ride height at all, infact seem to have made the springs comfortably firmer.
Also added a pair of 15mm spacers to the rear wheels. From the look of it I could have gone 20mm with 235/40/18 tyres. Was going to put 10mm up front, but the 15mms might be getting transferred.
Nice, I have the kit to do that... but not the time to change it over. How much of a big job is it? Much difference in engine response?
What kit is it you've got Bobby?
I just went down the route of changing the manifold to a BKD one without flaps. On a B8 there are kits to remove the flaps.
I've read that removing the flaps alters the low speed torque. I've only taken it for a quick spin, and I don't think it felt any different really.
It's not about performance though, it's just smoothing out airflow as be reducing the chance if things failing.
Have you still got your EGR valve too? It wasn't a big job really, 10 bolts hold the manifold on, because I've already removed my valve and cooler providing more space around the engine.
There have been issues with idling etc with this mod , just heads up really.
It’s a kit I bought a long time ago
But I just haven’t had the time to fit it, work has been mental the last 8 months... lockdown has sent people crazy. I must get round to doing the cam follower too, it’s coming up due for a change and that’s the important one.
I hit all the ones the other day! 111,111miles she’s getting an old girl now, plenty of life left in the beast though - I love embarrassing much newer machinery.
Where did you buy those buddy? Looks good
finally put in my modified avant boot liner to make geting to the fuel pump/control unit easier. might be of use for ideas for others. makes access way easier
Not sure if this is the meaning behind this thread but here goes .Took evasive action on a sharp right hand bend to avoid a car straying lanes coming the opposite way and slammed into the kerb
