      Joe, what oil cooler did you ordered?

      Mocal 235 16 row with lightweight racing hose, remote oil filter housing and Canton Mecca 6 in screw on filter.

      Installed 15mm spacers on the rear wheels! Looks great! A very subtle improvement.

      Washed and vacuumed. De-greased the engine. Also cleaned the windows.
      Ah...feels good to look at a clean TT. We had a sprinkle of rain then a bunch of dust blowing around. My car looked like a leopard w/ all those damn spots!

    12. 05-03-2008 04:51 PM #47
      I hit it and swore at it because the instrument cluster is starting to take a ****

    13. 05-04-2008 01:06 AM #48
      I washed off 9 eggs that were pelted at it.

      Then later in the day just gazed in AWW at the damage the eggs caused.

      So painful!!!

      Wish people weren't such cowards and instead of throwing them at my car just tried throwing them at me. (wouldn't go over as well for the culprit.)

      I'm giving my car a nice wash/clay/prep polish/wax today and am doing a quick vacuum today.

      Woohooo sunny and 64 degrees, it's nice out!

      P.S. The A4 forum is dead on Vortex, I just wanted to say hi haha

      Well, I chipped mine today (InMotion) and swapped out the spark plugs for one heat range colder.

      It now officially goes like hell.

      Next up, new (to me) wheels.

      Swapped wheels to 18" x 8" and put 20 mm spacers in the back. Was going to put 15mm spacers in the front, but I need to get the right size bolts.

      It really depends on which car you drive when it comes to what forum is best.

      Changed my plugs a couple of days ago. I'm not sure when they were changed last (maybe 20K ago? Previous owner probably had it done at the 40K service.). They weren't bad, but I didn't waste my time/$ with the change. Plus, it allowed the TT and I to bond.
      I called a friend about the damn fuel filter. He explained how the quick disconnect works...I'll give that another go this afternoon.
      I'm gonna look for some ramps and a torque wrench this afternoon, too. I've been wanting both of those for a while. If all goes well, I'm going to install the ECS poly dogbone mounts today, too.

      I just ordered poly FSB bushings to fix the creaking in my front suspension and a Neuspeed Rear Stabilizer Bar from TTStuff. Also got an air filter/cabin filter... timing belt, haldex, and oil being changed this Wednesday. Hopefully after all this I can recover financially and work on getting a DP/Exhaust and chip for the summer!

      Agreed. The Vortex has a pretty good Corrado forum that is VERY active.

      Oil change - Castrol Syntec 5w-40
      Fuel Filter change
      Poly inserts for dog bone

      Paid somebody to do 'em for me.
      Don't have a good place to dispose of oil (yet...);
      Couldn't get the f*$%King quick disconnects on the fuel filter;
      Got the dog bone off no problem, but couldn't get the center bolt out (I think that woulda needed some air tools and/or a vice...neither of which I have)

      Glad it's done. I like the shop: Got a recommendation for a great VW/Audi shop from a local. Turns out...the Audi division is visible from my porch! Makes me feel good, in case I ever have to leave it over night. I'm rollin' up on 60K, so I'm trying to space out the stuff a little. I think I'll go for a Haldex and brake fluid change next. Then, TB/WB/etc.

      Don't worry - many a seasoned mechanic have broken them trying to get them off. I had someone else do it as well - actually when I had my TB done - did'nt cost me anymore.

      Thanks, Joe. My man-pride took a little blow from the fuel filter...I don't feel so bad, now.

      FINALLY got the parts together that i ordered. got the neuspeed 22mm front sway and a 1/2 kmac kit, both going in this week along with oil change, plug change, and alignment.

      my front sway is creaky as hell and im tired of hitting it with silicone spray to make the sound go away- time to cure it once and for all and upgrade in the process...

      i was debating for a while whether to get the kmac or not because my drop is mild and there isnt THAT much neg camber, but the look has been bothering me, and i might as well save my tires a little more.

      i seem to do mods in spurts usually when its time for an oil change, so the next episode after this one will be another oil change, haldex change, maybe some spacers, replace windshield (slightly cracked. thanks winter!) and finally get the driver's door latch sensor replaced...
