      What he said.

      Also, its not a 180Q. Its more like a 180FWD. there were never any 180's made with quattro. Only the 225's came with the Q. To be more accurate it came with the Haldex, same as the R32.

      Regardles, WELCOME to the TT forum!

      Im not quite sure what youre talking about?

      The 180TT came in both FWD or AWD (Quattro, more specifically, Haldex)

      All 225TT came as AWD (Quattro, more specifically, Haldex) Standard. Not sure if thats what you were getting at?

      The 180 did come in both... I have a 180 quattro AWP aswell.

      If your going BT with a T3/T4 you definitly need to upgrade your connecting rods, otherwise youll break em like a twig

      Also, are you doing to the install or paying a mechanic?

      Goodluck with your mods

      Yes please upgrade the rods. A guy local shot a rod threw his block and just dropped it off at my buddies shop. People like that get one of these

      welcome 180QUATTRO here as well, welcome. AWP is a cool engine wideband O2 sensor and vvt=win you have to upgrade rods but you have to do that with all 1.8t's for Big Turbo.

      01-29-2012 05:43 PM #9
      Thank you everyone! I Plan on upgrading the rods down the road. I'm just not gonna run full boost until I do it. I plan on doing the install myself and this will be a first also. I have done a lot of research on this and I think I can handle it all. I am going to get coilovers in June when I go to install the BT. I am in Japan right now and that is what's holding me back until I come home in June. Thanks everyone. And yes AUDI MADE 180Q... lol

      P.S. Does anyone one Know where I can get a drivers side small port Intake manifold? I was Planning on using a stock one but i cant find one on here or I'm not looking in the right places.

      Thats something I didnt know. Thanks for putting that out there. Another reason Im happy I got the 180 over the 225, still debate it all the time haha.

      Eventually when I go larger to a Gt28rs I will probable be happy that i have the wideband...l Not sure if Revo tunes to it or not but maybe they do and that would be good

      With the wideband you can run mafless... What are the advantages of doing this? I haven't done to much research on it yet but if someone could give me a good link on this, I would read it! Also does anyone know anything about what size swaybars I can use? I see a lot of different sizes and not sure what is best for me. Thanks again for the help!

      running mafless removes restrictions of the air flow into the turbo and makes more power, currently everyone non wideband are restricted by the 3" maf.

      To be honest, I wouldn't even risk pushing to 325 or even close for the torque pre connecting rods. Magic number seems to be 300lb tq, Some people never even made it past 290lb tq before their rods turned to jello!

      OK thanks for that. I read so many different thing about running 300lbs. I will try to get it around 280 then to be safe. I just have to save up for the build. Everyone here is wanting $4000+ for a rebuild. I wish i had the tools to do it myself. The good thing tho is if I blow it early, then I have a reason to rebuild it. I am very thankful for all the support! You all will be the first ones to know if anything happens. This is the Trend I got most of the info from for everyone else:

      So next week the VIS body kit is going on. It will take 3 days maybe 4 for him to finish it up. He is also installing the new Spider headlights with HID low and HID high beams. I also got a set of the spyder tail lights coming in soon i hope and i will be getting those on in the near future. Some things came up and we couldnt get the car in there until next monday. Will post pictures when it is installed. Hoping next month get some coilovers.

      You can run a 4" MAF if your software allows it or you have it tuned in. People run MAFless because the VW MAF sensor is terrible and fails frequently. The main issue is the MAF numbers go into the ECU's fueling & timing calculations, with a sensor the numbers slowly read lower as the sensor fails. With MAFless the numbers are pre-programed in there so you always get the same power delivery.

      4k for a rebuild? Does that include full top to bottom aftermarket parts? You could buy a fully built motor and built big port head on Vortex for $2,500 or so. A common rod install should cost $1k for parts and labor- that's what my local shop charges. Maybe hit the Florida regional forums and ask about local performance shops. I'd do the rods now because 300hp might sound fast, but it gets old fast too and you want more power

      Very nice my friend.... How do you like them and do you have any pictures of them?

      And thank you for clearing that up. And yeah they want 4G's + for a bore, polish, and bottom build up. I was thinking about just buying a built motor but I would still have to have someone instal it for me. I wanted to lower the c/r to 8.5 or 9 so when I wanted to add more power I could but im happy with the 9.5 c/r. I am gonna have to do some more research on this! Thank you again.


      P.S. You better like my bumper.... I didnt have to pay for it.

      Well i just bought some Eibach Pro-Kit Springs from a user on here. Should lower it about an inch. I am looking into some wheels too. I'm gonna stick with 17's just because i have brand new tires and I dont want to by another set. I will get a nice set of 18's when i need new tires! I have few other things im doing when i get home and i just bought a set of these for the engine bay. I couldn't pass it up because i am missing more than half of them. It was $40 shipped!







      How do you think these will look on my TT? They are 17x8 with a +35 off set. I would get 15mm spacers for the front and 20 mm for the rear. Thanks!

      Haha, I understand, being human and all, that we all want to feel accepted and liked, but as far as your car goes man, do what you want/like. Its your car homie, dont let us determine its outcome, we wont be driving it.

      Just hoping more people understand to take our opinions, as opinions (lots of purists around here, me being a mild one) and not as what you gotta do to get accepted around here... As long as you dont turn out to be another cable kid, I think youll do just fine!

      On the side note, my opinion on them wheels would have to be a lot better then those first ones you chose. The TT, IMO, has a very classy...style to it. As long as theres not too much going on (mesh spoke style being an exception) I think they'd look good!

      Im not a fan of chrome/polished pieces, but I think those would look good!

      For your headlights, you can open them yourself and black them out. You can also change them however you want. Your imagination is your only limitation

      Sex should be like a Civic; slow, obscene, and loud enough for the neighbors to hear.
