Hi guys. i'm converting a Corrado VR6 to take the 2.5 TFSI turbo engine (hopefully) I'm still in the early stages and trying to source the rear Syncro subframe before i begin the engine swap. I see a couple of you are doing the swap and i wanted to know what problems i may stumble across when doing the swap/fabrication? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
If you are after a specific info please ask ?
2fast4you2 keep up the good work!! Love the build and have been following it for a quite a while

I was always wondering how should Rallye look in pink
It's weird but good

Did some shopping:
a set of Bi-xenon headlights from golf 5 to use the lenses with the shutter on the Rallye headlights
I bot my self a co pilot *
I was going for the antenna but why I bot the navigation I really don't know
a Quattro gearbox
and an MC from Audi TT RS 25.4 mm clip
Moore new parts
I was thinking for a very long time what to use for my gearstick and this is the answer
Front Audi TT RS brake lines I tough they were steel braided but I guess I will be buying Braided ones
the pads for Brembo handbrake calipers
finally the MC with the brake fluid tank and the Clutch pump
I also bought a set of 4 Audi RS4 injectors which I will use with the stage 3 or 4 ;D when I buy an engine of course

OK so here is some work done. Finally we started painting The interior and the engine bay have been painted and in the next few days so should the outside
And some more parts:
Audi S3 IC
and a NS MKV Offset Dashpod from ECS
Audi R8 fuel pressure valve
Audi Oil Cap
and the first thing I will change on my 2.0 TFSI
also updated mu garage with some tools
The only thing that wories me is the size of the IC. It's a bit taller then the Rallye IC ?
but I think I'll find a solution
I crammed one into my Corrado and am in the process of wrapping it up. I needed to use the Corrado VR upper Rad support to get the extra height clearance, but also have an A/C condenser stuffed in there I am sure you will be able to make it work
pics are near the end of my build thread in my sig. Also, pic if you want to see what the inside of the core design looks like
haha, yea. When I bought it, I looked at the rough measurements and figured, it should fit with minor modifications which is why I opted for it vs making my own out of a Bell or Garrett core. 1 minor modification turned into 2, then 3, then... LOL
The one bummer was the small bit I needed to get to fit between the headlights but it turns out it was pretty easy to correct. And, I probably wouldn't have had that problem w/o the A/C condenser pushing it forward.
Finally Some paint and clear coat
Only one thing I have to say:
Just the naked eye can see the real beauty of the finish
Also sone more parts arrived:
I bought NEW all possible screws
and a special ??? thing that goes underneath the fixing points of the front fenders
and another styling detail
