    abf in lupo

    As mentioned dta and emerald are no better than ms for the application here, just ms is alot cheaper. My mk3 ABF turbo Runs ms1extra. Runs sweet but it's all down to the mapping. You can live map and has lots of functions. You have to know how to use them. Not sure I'd like use standalone on these though unless it was an expensive one that does sequential injection and has similar functions to oe ecus. You can't beat oem due to all the r&d gone into them. Some just are not suitable for boost.
  4. Nice work mate! Re Alternator. I've had nothing but problems with mine. Loose connections on the regulator, happened 3 times . Eventually changed it for a S/H 90A one from a polo mk5. £40 saved me some hassle.

    raceland 4-2-1 manifold

    The standard gti manifold has some really small headers coming from the exhaust ports they look around 35mm but squashed. They raceland manifold does improve the gti. I had the manifold fitted in front of the standard system and there seemed to be an improvement at the bottom ad top ends, but left a bit of a dip around 3-4k. After fitting the janspeed exhaust it was like a different car. good response and likes to rev.

    raceland 4-2-1 manifold

    It does need bending up and to the right to fit in the original gap and not be too close to the ground when running on a lowered car. Mine scraped the floor on uneven surfaces until it was bent. If its heated up properly it wont move. Had mine on for 2 years without a prob.

    GTI

    you can only set them using vag com. You adjust them using the adjusters on the lights and then set the position in "basic settings" The lights usually adjust depending on the angle of the rear suspension or according to ELSA. The amount of fuel in the tank. So if its been lowered the lights will change position.

    OLW's 1.8T build thread

    Be wary of the TT clocks, there has ben lots of faults with them draining the battery and the temp gauges reading wrong amongst other things. A friend of mine had them replaced by Audi free even though he was two years out of warranty. Common problem.
  9. Nice idea as usual mate! You Could possibly hide the cream with some sticky back plastic, Blue peter stylee.

    Thought i'd put on some new shoes

    get em from a breakers i paid paid £450 for dash airbags and ecu, only to find out the dash and ecu were the wrong type. took them both back and they refunded me £150. Any loop airbags will fit even older ones. The ecu is model specific and the dashes ar different depending on year. Beware cos i also had a battery disconnection device on mine which disconnects the power in a smash. These are about £80 + vat from Vw. You can connect it back together but airbag light will still be on.

    Uprated front door speakers

    Are you gonna get some adapters or make some mdf ones? if so you could go for these, read about them and for the price they are meant to be ok. Ideally you want something with a high sensitivity if you are using the head unit to power them. Around 91dB or more. Or get a cheap amp and power them up.

    Stealth Shelf

    or make your own like these mdf rings A good 1st mod would be to soundproof the doors I Have 8sqft of Damplifier pro in each door, they are solid. style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":shades:" border="0" alt="shades.gif" />
