June 2009

Just waiting for the exhaust to turn up, I have also ordered a silicone hose set and a set

of T clamps from 034 Motorsports

Been removing everything in preperation for fitting the new exhaust and manifold.

Airbox out, wastgate off, lambda disconnected, downpipe dropped,

turbo unbolted - top water and oil pipes disconnected,

top turbo hose off, taken out seven of the manifold nuts although a few did come

out with the studs as well - not bothered if they do so long as I don't snap any



August 2009: All ready for the new EM  and 3" turbo back stainless steel system

with one race cat.

Been down to Audi, ordered a new gasket, nuts and bolts etc etc..
The boost hose that goes from the wastegate to the WGFV - don't break it, new £70

(I'll be treating that with care when I refit my old one)


Exhaust Manifold


Exhaust Manifold


AAN Engine


Everything arrived







Including these little gems from ebay



Got as far as this.....



I had to cut about five of the studs to make the manifold fit right.
I didn't want to take all the studs out and replace them with RS2 one's
(fear of snapping them) but I know I should've done


All done!

Hasn't been problem free though 
The US rear bumper are they larger than the Euro spec one (I know the fronts are)?
I couldn't hide the rear box 
Also I need to sort out a better bracket for the front/cat section and the rear box section.
Dispite this I am well chuffed 
Car battery is on trickle charge now




I think I have messed up a bit
'I thought' it would just be enough with the rear silencer box - but clearly it isn't.
I really need another mid silencer box
But, Hell talk about hearing the 5 pot burble!!!
