      Regarding multiple check valves on the intake manifold line/side:
      They could be made to work, but could also result in unexpected behavior depending upon whether each valve was normally open or...

      Quick report from a track session... Unfortunately, I forgot my Bluetooth OBDII adapter, so I wasn't able to log any data. However, on a tight, very technical track with a lot of full throttle coming...

      A few comments...
      Looking at the crankcase ventilation system, at least for the 2.5L TFSI, you shouldn't install a check valve on the side which connects to the turbo inlet pipe. Air flows in both...

      Nice looking bit of kit. A pit on the pricy side, but neither APR or Brembo are known for being budget brands.

      Thanks, I was just about to post the same info :-) As soon as I opened the hood, I saw the short hose from the valve/cam cover to the intake manifold.

      I was expecting it to be pre turbo like the...

      Does any of this apply to the TT-RS and 2.5L TFSI engine? I have worked on my car a bit, but don't recall seeing the same type of PCV hoses that a mk6 GTI has, for example.

      The Audi internal...

      I have had 034 Motorsports rear sway bar end links on for a couple of years and about 12k miles with no issues so far. Note that I drive the car in the rain, but never on salted roads.

      To confirm I am following you... The OEM Shark Fin antenna is reused, but the OEM satellite tuner module is bypassed, relying on the SAT tuner in the headunit instead? (I do use SAT Radio quite a...

      Thanks 034 for getting the set of TT-RS motor/transmission mounts to me so quickly. First of all, the mounts look great! They look well designed, with attention to detail to make them better than OEM...

      Sure, a link to a blog/website will work.

      I am interested to hear about the extension cord needed for SAT Radio. Was the cord/cable run to the OEM Shark Fin antenna? I would think that you could...

      I finally had a chance to install the CTS intercooler for my TT-RS, which I purchased last year. Overall, I was very impressed with the product. Everything fit, all parts were included, and the...

      Great looking build! Definitely going to turn some heads with car once it is all put together.

      Zprime, looking forward to your writeup!

      Fined,
      besides the lack of support for the newer BT profiles, which can be worked around with a BT to 30pin iPod 'smart' adapter, the main drawback to...

      Hopefully the turbo itself will come in at or under the cost of the hybrid turbo from TTE. ( TTE is effectively less expensive than Loba, because TTE includes the CNC'd turbo intake pipe in the base...

      Please post up the install process and results. I have been eyeing that same headunit for my TT-RS.

      What a tease!

      Hopefully the 034 downpipe which I already have installed will work with your new tuning package (?)

      Yes, you should use the thread rods from the bridge to the engine to raise/lower the engine. That and/or a floor jack is all that is required for removing the transmission, engine/transmission...

      Edit... Order placed for the TT-RS/2.5L TFSI engine version.

      You should read the June 2015 issue of Road and Track... The 228i doesn't fare well against a FR-S and Mustang 2.3 Ecoboost, at least for driving feel and consistent cornering. Also, they mention...
