      Of course foo! All the usual that I had on the TT, plus I decided to try out a test pipe which was a great idea. Just got wheels on last week, but I am still trying to find time to install my suspension.

      Picture is 'shopped because oem sport suspension is too 4x4 to post up here

      Didn't know we had any other TT enthusiasts in my area

      Oh, and remember my threads about my dump tube I had on my TT? Well it's going on my A4 to pair up with my test pipe. Sucka is gonna be loud! Mmm I can't wait

      Or you can just sell it to me since I will be putting a new turbo back on in the next week or so anyway.

      I would, but it's really scraped up from my TT being so low before... and I really want to see what it will sound like on a 2.0T with a test pipe They're fairly cheap if you want a new one though, I just had Exhaust Pros (off Lime Kiln) weld mine in for about $50 or so I think

      sweet, thanks for the tip.

      Edit: Today, lets see, got the bumper, headlights, dual sidemounts, CAI, turbo, exhaust mani, intake mani, head, battery, battery tray, and about a million other things taken off...not that I started it all today but I finally got all that off today!

      yes and AEB head swap

      Tyring to be ready in time for Treffen but I here the drag strip is like an hour drive from the show plus I don't think I will have sufficient break in time by then either

      A few comparison pics


      boost controller

      water/meth

      stock intercooler next to Spearco 3.5" core

      Stock throttle body compared to new TB (note, not actual TB I will be using but same size)

      stock intake runner compared to big port/AEB runner

      another intake comparison

      and stock K04 next to Kinetics 50 trim w/ .63ar (shoulda taken another pic to show length comparison, turbo is waaaaaaay bigger)

      still waiting for rods, head, wastegate and TIP, still on the to do list is make exhaust, DP, and IC piping (not looking good for my Aug. 16 deadline)

      Very nice, my friend Are you going with black rings in the rear too?

    19. 08-10-2008 11:39 AM #159
      What intake manifold is that? Is that the manifold that mates up w/ the AEB head?
      I know it's a bit of a thread hijack, but I'm still not sure where AEB heads come from (GTI? 2.0T?)

      Yes, it's an APR big port intake made for AEB/ported head and AEB comes from 97-99.5 A4's and passats

      Blacked out my front rings! (and i didn't even take them off the grille! )


      Just waiting on my TIP/Intake then I'll post again

      Dropped the car off at the shop, 60K on the odo, so:
      Timing belt, water pump, tensioner, etc. Haldex oil & filter. Coolant flush. Brake fluid flush. Install Goodrich stainless brake lines.
      I'll feel better after getting this stuff done. After this...I can start modding again. (Well, I did get at least one mod in there. I'll report on the brake lines when I get it back from the shop.)

      Continued test fitting a almost drop in air to water intercooler set up for the 180

      Nothing like having a 600hp core with no extra piping and .2psi drop

      I posted some pics of the inside of the ic on AF, but like i said there, i dont want to just give away my idea so others can just reverse engineer them. When im done, ill post some pics, but not give everything away on how its installed. Will however post some info on it when i get it all up and running. Plus since im using such a large radiator, water temps shouldnt be an issue, they rad is about 4x bigger than other "aftercooler" kits.

      cool, saw the pics on AF...Post up temp read outs and things of that nature and that's good enough for me...Good job on taking needed thing into your own hands.

      Picked car up from shop. I feel good about getting all that maintenance done.
      My right front parking lamp is out, though...damn!t. It lit up when I picked it up from the shop (I checked) and it's not working now. My left side melted through it's holder, so I wonder if that's what happened on the right side.
