      Well, here's what's been happening with Dimitri's VRT:

      Got it in, and parts started flying off...








      So at that point, dis-assembly was pretty much done. Only thing I'll have to take off is the downpipe to weld on another bung for the lugtronics wideband. So, things started to go back on.

      First order of business was to change out the stock motor mounts (which were in surprisingly good shape) with BFI's Delrin mounts.
      These went pretty smooth, except for the passenger rear mount, which had a seized bolt, so I had to unbolt the whole mount from the motor, and take it out as a whole so I could wrestle the bolt out on the bench.










      Nice bolts Dimitri! LOL



      After that, bigger injectors went in:


      42DD SAI Plug:


      ANNNNND, I polished the Intake Mani. I can't not polish a VR manifold



      Core support removed and stripped of all that stupid rust that was on it, and repainted That thing really bothered me
      AC is completely gone (I'm going to try to get him to put in a non-AC heater core ).
      EVAP is completely gone, including that stupid tank in the passenger fender
      EGR is gone and deleted
      SAI is gone and plugged thanks to 42DD
      New VC Gasket
      New upper intake mani gasket

      So now that all this stuff is done, Lugtronics is going on today, and all the needed plumbing, etc. I'll also be starting on the exhaust this afternoon. It's going to be awesome!!!!!

      Gracias. Since this thread seems to have turned into my private car blog, i guess I'll put up some more pics






      Freed the muffler from the old piping


      and polished it up...why not eh?


      2 bungs from 1:








      The bevel that I usually run with a butt-joint

      I'd put money on them being super super harsh. Delrin mounts are like rocks.

      After the car being on, I really only notice them just off of idle. But for a daily, I think stage 1 should be plenty.
      Heck when I go stage 3 with the s4, I'm not doing delrin mounts. Probably RS4 mounts

      oOo stage 3. And that's surprising.

      So my car was hit, getting it fixed soon, and new front bumper which will let me have a vr lip . Then frame notch and actual low. I dont even rub right now.

      Redid the IC piping...










      Pressure testing:






      Wrinkle black...


      All done




      Sadly, this will be the last time I work on this car, and probably anyone's car in the tri-state, ever. We're moving on Monday...to Utah.

      Anyone know a good place to get my wheels sand blasted in Danbury?

      Tired of fighting the 3 or 4 layers of paint on them now, just need them down to their bare metal

      Thanks in advance

      Ah, the whole thing was sarcasm lol. I have heard about the "bowser" but have not heard her say it. We should get it on video.
