    Thread: Best TT Ever...

    1. 08-16-2008 08:20 PM #71
      350??????

      Oh nooo! Man, welcome to the "Porche Killer Club"

      BUT...

      Honnestly, U will feel the difference, of course, but it's too much power for a non-quattro car. It would be better on a TTS, but on a 2.0, I have a doubt. Lots of mechanical parts need to be changed if you plan to keep the car...

      Otherwise, sounds a fantastic project!

      I wanna see it. And if you do it, Man, I swear, I come to Abu Dhabi...

      hmmmm. well well well... if you'll come..
      then definitly I'll do it...

      well, let me tell you this..
      I was planing to go with my TT to APR stage 3,
      and that's what might destroy my car.

      APR stage 3 means 400+ hp
      can you imagin our cars can reach that limits without NOS!!!

      but all Technical tuner here told me to go for K04 which is 350+
      after adding all other tuning stuff like intercooler +ECU+ Fuel pump..etc

      K04 is the S3 turbo kit, which fit our cars.
      G30 & G35 Turbo's are the super stuff, I won't touch it, coz it might harm my car badly ((Later on))

      So check what I'm saying here:

      http://www.goapreu.com/products/new_turbo_k04.html

      http://www.goapreu.com/product....html

      it's written in stage 3 the following:

      The power increase with the APR Stage III kit for the 2.0T is substantial. It is recommended that brake and suspension upgrades are done to safely use the potential of this upgrade. It is also recommended that the stock engine internals be upgraded for power levels above 98 RON, as APR is not responsible for any damage to the engine.


      I'll photo car as soon I upgrade it with everything..

      How about some OEM brakes like these.

      RS6 calipers with RS4 discs

      Well, this operation need alots of modification, and it needs some1 knows what he's doing, it's not fix and ride.

      I wish if Anyone done it b4, show us the process from A-Z
      Then I'll definitely do it.
      OEM parts are always more reliable more than anything else.

      This place in the UK does the conversion for ~2,000 pounds sterling. I don't think there are too many complications but some spacers may be required

      but if there is no complications,
      why r u doing it in APS, not in the agency..??
      Just request these items to fit it directly in your car.

      Anyway, I'll try to ask the agency to do it..
      and we'll see about it.

      I don't think I'll need spacer while I'm using 20" Rims
      I'll change them as well to 19" to utilize performance.

      Thanks bro

      I am waiting to see all of these on the car. Because I was really hesitating with the spoilers... Tell us everything; does it look quality?
      Post the pictures, Man!!

      By the way, which colour is your car now?
      Sorry, but I didn't like the previous one with the rieger kit. But, now, you have the real classy touch...

      Hey Skybird....

      well thanks dude..
      have some patient.. coz I'm really waitin as well to drive it..
      still waitin on my ECU and APR things to arrive back from USA..
      all what we've done is just Exterior job..

      Shipment these things.. taking long time..
      so I should wait...
      I swear .. I miss driving my car, but sure I can't coz it's without brain.. A'mean without ECU.. lol

      so patient dude..
      As soon I we finish this project, I'll post all of photo's...

      Still struggling with the Coilover Suspension..
      really looking for solution with my f***ing MRC..


      You should know that our TT's gotta problem by the G-force,
      they call it heavy nose G-force, means tilting is a must when u speed and turn... even while using MRC..
      KW, is not a solution, but it solve some of this issue..

      Ferrari, Porsche.. all cars with back engine's gotta the heavy back..
      so it's more controllable due speeding and turning..

      hate that I can't use the aftermarket Coilover's...

      get springs then. the MRC is in the shocks so you cant do a full coil over system but you can still run lowering springs. Find the springs that lower her the most and cal it a day

      The whole idea of owning the coilover is to be able to lower the car when I'm in speeding mode or rise it up when I face an ugly humps ahead...
      Je design already manufacture it fit's with MRC but you can't position it the way you want...
      what they done is what u just mentioned.. use MRC + H& R lowering springs..

      I'll wait and see..
      maybe they'll solve it soon and produce something fit MRC...

      coil overs usually arnt adjustable on the fly... and MRC doesnt raise or lower the car, it just makes the shocks stiffer. If you want adjustable ride height, bag it

      then i guess I should try this one..:

      KW HLS (Hydraulic Lift System)

      in additional to the sport springs.. !!
      I'll have to study that.. see if these things could match...

      The beauty of lowering...


      hmmmmmm..

      I can't find it, but I could have sworn I saw a conversion to use the R8's 8-pot brakes on the TT MkI or MkII...

      thoughts of bringing these up...

      Just purchase the Air intake system,
      it's little bit expensive,
      but it worth it..
      coz it's carbon fiber,
      & you don't have to loose the Engine cover to apply a new pipe for it.

      here is the photo's



      The main idea is to seal the air filter from the engine heat,
      so we gain the max performance.

      Another Option is this


      but as you can see..
      you'll have to get rid of the engine cover...
      which i didn't like the Idea..

      Mr. Obaid,

      I have contacted Mazen for you and he is supposed to be contacting you soon. I am sorry he has not gotten with you. But APR has delivered the parts as promised and we gave you tracking on it.

      Let me know if there is anything else i can do for you!

      I really understand your feeling and would be so angry, I would never let the river flow...
      But would be on every forum, everywhere to let the world know what APR means...

      Any chance to stop the order and block the account?

      You know, they're not the only one on earth...

      I also understand the feelings. But to recommend this is not the proper way to handle the matter. It seems that "to let the world know what APR means..." is wrong. Things are often NOT as they appear. Talking with all the participants in the transaction is the start to resolving the issue.

      To the OP, I hope that you are able to resolve all your problems in a reasonable time frame and to your satisfaction. Good luck to you.

      Guys..
      Would you spend a large amount of money without any results?

      I'm sorry, but not me.
      I have a job. I earn money thanks to my job, my courage and my ability to work hard.
      So when I spend money, I expect a feedback.
      You guys in the States should understand that better than anyone else in the world...

      here is the details for the TT to TTS Led lights

      tts led is same as tt one... it not need to wire work or otherthing,
      all plugs and wires position is same as my 07 2.0t TT

      but only trouble thing is you need VAGCOM computer check for renew the code for let it work.
      so You'll pay other $100USD to AUDI Service in here for update code for it then , everything done


      You know what? Got problem with Audi headquarters...

      They simply refuse to change my headlights. They got one case where the inside bulbs (reading lights??) were flashing with the outside while turning...

      Maaan!! Do you believe that!!

      I'm stuck! Because the headquarters is the best audi dealer you could find to make the mod! Dont want an unexperienced guy touching the electronics of my car!!!
      What a mess...

      Still waiting for my KW kit2...

      Waiting, always waiting...

      Skybird, as I stated, I'd be upset. But I don't think that shouting to all the world about any vendor will solve anything. The OP is located in an area where shipping is probably uber slow and things get mixed up or confused much easier. Believe me, I feel for the OP too. I just believe that resolving this in a manner that is fair to the vendor is the right thing to do. Exercising integrity and character is the thing to do, no matter what. Nuff said.

      I'll summarize what skybird said by the following:
      Case open: 21.07.2008 with the down payment.
      Today is 09.09.2008

      Total days: 50
      & still waiting...

      Can you tolerate keeping your car in the workshop 50 days
      & paying full payment.

      I lost my reliability with my tuning agents here.
      Staying the whole 50 days under pressure from workshop to remove the car since no job to be done on it.

      All of my friends here and owners of luxury cars waiting to see my plans since above 50 days.

      MMMMMan... be realistic... no one would tolerate that.

      in the end.
      I'll mention -soon- all companies which I did deals with it and how long does it took to end up deals.
