      The Route to Eurowerks in Minnesota.




      Then we had air ride technical problems because the night before I changed the location of my E-level sensors and it started wearing away at the bag.. blown bag

      (the photos of my sensors in the previous post are the NEW and REVISED location. Been riding like that for the back 2 months with no issues)


      Waiting for a flatbed to come and pick me up. Beers were popped!


      Made it to the show





      After all the problems with my car and sleepless nights it was worth it!

      HEHEHE OR WAS I!




      Sofar those are like the only photo's I've found of my car.
      I was cruising the strip all weekend. As for the show I woke up extremely late... (Seacrets) the night before.
      I rolled into the show around 1230, the people said at the gate NO MORE ENTRY, NO MORE CARS IN THE SHOW, EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE A VENDOR CAR YOU STILL CAN'T GET IN.... so I drove into the grass parking lot, then continued driving, through some playground... These cops in a golf cart just looked at me and I kept on going and drove myself into the show. I ended up parking with AirLift and Dubkorps.

      Hey guys!
      Sorry I haven't been updating in a while.... Had a few VERY intense weeks pass me by..
      Final projects, final exams, graduation, ceremonies/parties, work AND all in time to finish my car before SOWO....

      Well I did.



      Piping in




      Coolant to the Wastegate... Thanks Auston!



      Temp mock up for the catch can


      More 034 goodies in..


      Mocking up the IC piping



      Starting to look like a motor again



      Then Friday came around.... 6 days BEFORE i'm supposed to leave to SOWO..
      Yeah.... I forgot to purchase injector spacers, so I made fuel rail spacers because time was of the essence.




      Tapped and plugged..
      On the newer style manifolds one of the holes is very close to one of the runners and my drill bit elongated the hole so I had to step it up to 1/2NPT.... No time for jegs to ship me new AN plugs, so Home Depot it was.









      The cold side is all one piece. (Notice my handmade MAP flange)..... also forgot to purchase that before the weekend.








      The day of "Leaving" to SOWO....
      Drove it, for the first time...... home at 3am..
      Yeah who needs a front bumper, hood or exhaust? (open downpipe)

      Back to my shop in the AM.... about 12 hours before leaving for SOWO....

      Still had to connect exhaust, finish my brackets for the Recaro seats (BTW they're electric), Install rollbar, modify and install hood, install bumper, and connect recirculating hose




      Forgot the plug in Reverse light sensor & speed sensor.... no big deal. Time to hit the road

      Well after only test driving the car for about 20 miles and then hitting the road the car drove amazing... The 034 single turbo kit is AWESOME... So much power and even with my AWE twin 1 exhaust it backfires in every gear...

      In boofoo Indiana around 4am we had a small complication.. The only thing that I didn't change on the car broke.. One of the plastic Audi coolant "T"s decided to snap. No 24hr auto part stores around, WalMart had absolutely nothing... The car instantly started overheating so slowly, and with multiple stops we finally pulled into an Autozone parking lot... slept for about 5 hours until they opened. Got the brass "T" fitting and I was back on the way..

      One of the victims of this overheating problem was my recirculating heater hose. The hose got so hot in the engine bay and under constant vacuum it literally clamped itself together and was not repairable.
      I googled 1 1/12 recirculating hoses and found on a DSM tuner website that there is a SPA vacuum hose at Home Depot that is high heat resistant and made of polyurethane.

      At 3$ a foot it saved my car! It actually worked and ran better than with the heater hose.



      Needless to say I MADE IT





      AGHHHH the Home Depot hose..










      The bikers even liked my car.... calling it "The Weapon"
