      good looking out.

      i originally deleted my PS and modified an old PS pump to pump the water for my charge-cooler. it works brilliantly, but i have no PS. i'm currently looking at changing the direction of my build to a more motorsport-themed deal and think the PS may help me point the car where i want it during high speed maneuvers. gonna have to have some PS lines custom made and a tank for the charge-cooler's fluid. i need a TIG welder so badly i could poop my pants.

      Audi S4 maf, finishing coolant lines and power steering



      Relay box mounted to the rail



      Battery installed and wired



      Boost solenoid mounted on the IC bracket


      Car should be going to the tuner this weekend if I finish up the last few things. Definitely in the final stages of this whole mess. I need to figure out the inline filler neck setup. Ordered brackets to bolt in the recaro seats.

      With low backpressure the forward pressure would stay down.

      High pressure line will use the OEM line and the low pressure line will be rerouted to hid the reservoir.

      awesome. have you actually started it? i re-arranged some gauges today, reinstalled my dvd player, and then put on a few miles. hoping to put some more on it this week. gotta hurry before the weather gets poopy and i have to put it up for the winter.

      amazing build. good to see someone else do it by themselves.

      Nope haven't started ECU is untuned. Just turned the key to make sure the pumps and gauges were wired properly. Hopefully I can finish the damn thing this weekend to get it tuned. Still have a bunch of odds and ends to tie up for the main part its 98% done. I still need to pick up an EGT gauge and install it. I was trying to find something that would match the LC-1 but I don't know if i want a digital one i think an analog would be easier to monitor. I hope i can get this thing running before winter too . It would suck to put it away before it even ran lol.

      Got the motor running today. Motor sounds like ****. Excessive noise up top. Not sure what the issue is. Anyone have any suggestions? Going to have my buddy take a look at tomorrow. Hopefully the lifters just don't have oil in them or something easy. I have it running on the stock injectors right now and it idles but is loud. The A/F gauge reads about 17.5-18 but I'm not sure if its calibrated right or not. Also not sure how to determine how much oil is in the car considering I have a mk5 r32 pan and an oil cooler. I have about 6qts in it. If i take the oil cap off I can see oil sloshing around. There is definitely pressure. Its a brand new mk5 pump as well. Also running the car without the mac plugged in. I can put a video up if need be.

      Let it run for a little bit so the lifters can pump up. The noise should slowly go away, especially considering you can see a lot of oil moving around.

      Make sure the plug wires are in the correct location. I just had the exact problem. My a/f read 17.3 and it ran rough. #1 & #3 were crossed.
