      Here is a tiny update. I'm relocating that hole bundle of wire deleting my windshield wiper setup completely.
      Also I want to relocate my coolant holder. Dose any one have suggestions as to where I can put it?

      Anyone know the part # for the R8 oil and coolant bottle caps? There is a vin# split and a different part# for v8 or v10....

      coolant cap would either be 420-121-321 or 4B3-121-321

      oil cap either 420-103-485-B or 079-103-485-A

      I am thinnking its the 420 ones cuz the r8 always uses a 420 to start there part #'s but of course etka makes my life complicated... thanks guys

      How about extending the lines and hoses down to just inside the area the windshield washer reservoir was? Its gonna be a pain to re fill, but if you made a quick release bracket it'd be easier to pull up and out. Like a cotter pin or whatever

      But I would use 16 or 14. Because longer wires have more resistance. Not gonna cause problems though...whatever you find will be ok

      Looking good!
      The only reason I decided not to run this way.was first because its a huge undertaking.and second I was worried about collision from debris and what not. Also once I have my fmic it'll be tight in there. But from the looks of it, it is protected and looks really nice!

      Glad to have helped!

      now go finish it!

      I've been trying to figure out a way to delete my ac and have the alt moved down in it's place. I never use ac.

      Or I was considering just tearing out the internals of the ac. I
      Think the ac lines are nice though at least they are hardlines and clean in the bay. However I have no need for them.
      Plus removing it would allow a better fan to be placed on the rad. That could then be controlled via the ac button in the car.

      You can...kind of...
      You will run kinda weird. Start up is rough, you'll get a cel and fuel trim would be off... Its nothing super bad, but should be tuned out because your 2nd o2 will be freaking out
      Edit...by weird...i mean different start up...again nothing bad though...i should have clarified

      um, maybe on a turbo'ed car.
      on my NA, this is what happens:

      as you can see, SAI was disconnected and the hoses removed.


      Vag com shows 2 codes for the 2 disconnected SAI sensors.


      it gets a lil rich on cold starts...


      once its warm, its all back to normal at around 14.7... no fuel trim nor AFR issues.


      but its all good. other than the cel, the car runs fine.

      Hmm so afr gets pissed but goes back to normal once the cat warms up?

      When I ran without mine it went wonky on fuel trim...not bad, but still notable...

      This is what it's gonna look like until i clean out the a/c line. I started doing it, but it wasn't going very well. Also having a bracket made to hold the hoses on the motor mount.

      hey Tyler, that easily visible hose off the intake by the TB on your previous intake is the one where I replaced the c2 hose with the ford focus coolant hose. Mainly cuz with the c2 kit it rubbed through on the battery tray and always got yanked out under hard acceleration with stock mounts. My car finally got finished on Thursday and my parents are gonna drive it up from Texas when they come up for Thanksgiving so we definitely gotta meet up. Looking like I'm gonna be working for the Monroe O'Reily's here soon so if you don't mind the trek up I should be able to help you out with parts for whatever. Can do outside buys on stuff not carried in stock plus I still got all my parts connections from working for the speed shop in Texas. In short I'm gonna make that O'Reily's be the place to come for parts if you don't like dealing with inept kids working the counter.
