    water meth tank mate. I've been thinking about a big turbo but I like the internal waste gate, any recommendations?

    I've just ordered these rear brake discs and adapters. I'm not sure if they'll make an improvement but with the much improved braking force on the front I'm standing it on its nose so I'm hoping these might help to address the balance. if all else fails they should look the goods, I just hope they clear the 18's as the advert said 19's recommended...

    nice one. I might be jumping in to the S3 8p wagon soon as well. Want to do a few track days with my daughter, so this thread is priceless!

    Do you need to get a brake bias kit as well so that you can adjust them?

    battery relocation is now complete and it looks like the water meth tank will take its place quite nicely...





    rear brake upgrade has turned up already too...

    I wasn't planning to mate, I just thought a bit of increased rear brake may help keep it a bit flatter when standing on the pedal and keep the weight transfer a bit more balanced. I may be wrong but its worth a shot...

    installed rear upper and lower control arms and had it set-up by Ken at accurate suspension. Will need some arch work before I can squeeze on the 265 tyres but I'm getting closer...





    I used this guide for the torque settings which might be useful to others...





    and this one for the rear arb bolts...





    and finally thought I'd post this here as I'll need it to install my harness...

    even after the oil cooler upgrade I'm still suffering high temps on the track so I decided to try one of these...





    it was a bit of a pig to install without removing the front of the car but it is possible. I left the plastic on to try and prevent scratching or bending of fins...





    I've heard good things about these radiators so I've got my fingers crossed...





    water meth is on the way too to try and reduce temps even further...
