    Changed my coolant temp sensor. (Green plug (4 pin) for a new Green plug (4 pin) from Euro C.P. + then put a litre of G12 coolant in.

    Wasn't half full of **** / slime.


    • Job's a good-un & running like a dream :D

    That’s what launch control and flatshift are for.

    Should still have around 4000rpm on decent boost, about the same as the average GT30 lol

    High enough lol, hoping for another 800 or so rpm more than previous.

    Should be livelier off boost with high comp and sooner boost onset with different fuel

    Will be full dog kit as OEM wouldn’t stand a chance in hell against this probably on actuator

    I assume from your profile pic you have an 8P S3... you would be better off asking this question in the correct section dude... this is the earlier 8L section and this thread isn't really for asking questions in...

    Replaced the clockspring and made the airbag light go out. Yay!
    Have replaced it with the ESP light instead. Boo!
    VCDS Lite says 00778 incorrect or no basic settings at least the light is orange and not red.

    Have now got a fully working rear wash wipe. Pushing the washer stalk resulted in a puddle under the engine, reconnected the pipe under the black trunking behind the air-box. Sense of achievement rapidly disappeared as a pool of washer fluid rapidly appeared behind the rear wheel. Took out the trim panel, cd changer ad sub reconnected the other joint and all working.

    Wedged by the sub and covered by foam padding is something that looks like a pump with a blue and yellow hose connected to it, the hoses look to run under the boot door and into the off-side trim panel before joining a red and black set of hoses. What are they for??

    Haha probably not to far off! 6 gal per min (about 1600 litres per hour) at 100 psi for the pump though at 8k iirc. Will flow even more at higher rpm

    If calcs are correct will do up to 4 litres per run down the strip

    Can’t wait to unwrap the s3 and start rebuilding it few more months and than the transformation begins as amazing as the r32 sounds I just don’t get the same enjoyment as from the s3

    I’m thinking v6 turbo route as price wise there’s probably not much difference than full rebuild and gt30/35 and can run on less boost on the 3.2 with gt 30/35 and standard internals and do them over time plus the v6 sounds better . I don’t want to rush it but I want it done cars been off the road 2 years now and it kills me walking past it everyday. I pick up the 18z calipers for it on Monday from powder coating aswell

    Sounds exciting! You going to use the motor from your R then? I often get tempted to chop mine against a nice mk4 r32 - but then I go for a blast and can’t being myself to do it

    No the mk5 r32 engine won’t work plus that will be sold/ traded in at some point. I’m going to get a mk4 r32/mk1 tt engine or the 2.8 4motion engine

    liking the colour TJ, but yeah that paint job is a bit rough! I wouldn’t be happy with that either. Maybe you could use some fine sand paper to even it out and cover with clear VHT?

    Yeah I can’t belive it took them a week and it looks like a rushed job can’t believe they let them go out like that. Told them when I dropped them off that I’d have more bits to get done like the tears and some engine bits but won’t be going there again

    I think I could have done better job with a dirty paint brush and on eyes closed. Not acceptable. Hope you can square it away and get them looking how they were intended to be.

    I’d be taking them back and asking for a refund mate. Don’t let them get away with that.

    I did mine with a dremel, sandpaper, wire brush, VHT primer, paint and clear coat with no previous experience and it still puts that ‘professional’ job to shame.

    TJ are those pistons in backwards? They look odd and no dust seals visible

    Love the color but it’s a shame about the finish, that’s terrible workmanship. Hope you are able to send them back to be done properly

    Ha no no pistons or seals fitted yet will be doing that when the new pistons arrive. The old pistons were chipped/ damaged It seems each Caliper has 3 aluminium pistons and 3 phenolic pistons which I didn’t realise until I went to order them

    airbag = yes

    Buttons = Maybe, and the primary reason is if i was running an RNSE then i would need to fit a4 8k buttons since they're based on an older version of the lin gateway that is compatible with the a3 8p steering control module, im running an win ce hybrid headunit however and im hoping my canbus emulator will be able to communicate with the newer 8v gateway otherwise ill just have to fit the a4 button set also. but steering controls is doable
