1/7/18 Raceism

So my holiday this year was a driving trip to one of the biggest shows in eurpe - Raceism. For those of you who don't know Raceism is held the stadium in Wroclaw, Poland. Foe me thats nearly 2000 miles and 32 hours of driving and it has 100% worth it! the show was amazing both the stadium and the level of cars. if you ever get a chance, go!

Also stopped by a audi garage in germany to take a few pictures! :-)

To be honest that seems cheap for the turbo fitted and tuned?

anyway,

please enjoy the first properly decent picture of the steering wheel

Upcoming plans:

Split headlights - tint reflector, blackout chrome surround, fit demon eyes
retro fit full rear sequential indicators
tear the boot build out in way for a cleaner install
possible removing back seats to make way for a huge sub install

Been very recently and neglected this thread a little, so here’s a huge update which probably won’t be in order lol
EMTuning’s projector retrofit

A pillar twin gauge pod
2018 S5 big brakes
Gearbox rebuild and upgraded clutch and flywheel, Powerflex transmission insert
AEM water methanol injection
Powerflex adjustable camber bush


EMTuning’s projector retrofit

Everyone knows the standard projectors in the B8 a5’s are very poor, so I decided to go about to swap them out – spoke to emtuning and got some hella g5 projectors with brackets ready to fit. I spent hours; and I mean hours, researching online how to tear the headlight apart and nothing… turns out the easiest way is to cut them open with a dremel! Sounds a bit savage, but it turned out alright! While I had the headlights open I painted all of the inside chrome black and frosted the DRL’s with 40 grit paper to make them blur into one solid line. Fitting the projectors is also a lot of work with a dremel cutting back a lot of the projector holders so the new projector would fit – that was very savage! Whilst I was putting the projectors in, I also included a red demon eye which is wired into my fog light circuit with a resistor so when I unlock the car the demon eyes and DRL’s turn on – might not be everyone’s cup of tea but I love it! Anyway, took me around 7 hours to complete one headlight, bearing in mind id never even seen the inside of a headlight before! So I did one light one weekend and one the next weekend, so for a week I drove around with one of EMTuning’s projectors and one of Audis and the truth of it is, I couldn’t even see the standard one at all, EMTuning’s projectors are insanely good – it would put some of those off road light bar things to shame!

A pillar twin gauge pod

I’ve been wanting to make a pillar gauge pod for some time, while I appreciate again that’s its not everyone’s cup of tea, I think they’re awesome! Brought a universal twin gauge holder from eBay and a spare a pillar just inside I really messed up lol, picked up a 30psi boost gauge and EGT gauge pretty cheap. Anyway, stripped the spare a pillar of its trim, Audi put on their very very well by the way lol, put the garage pod holder over the pillar and warmed it up with a heat gun so it would take the space better, epoxy resin it in place and fibre glassed over it so it was smooth, trimmed over it and done! Wired everything up and looks ace!

2018 S5 big brakes

Had my eyes on some big brakes for a while, all seemed so expensive! Until a good friend of mine offered me a set from a 2018 S5. Big, red and 6 pot! They were not a straight fit and required a custom spacer to be made but they fit lovely now. The difference between sliding callipers and X pot brakes is unreal – before now, I’d never driven a car with big brakes so didn’t really know what to expect but ohhhhh damn they stop! No difference in feel still being OEM, but when you need them you definitely know they’re there!

H&R front and rear anti roll bars and whitelines rear brace

Yep over Christmas I decided to work a little bit more on the chassis side of things, did a bit of research looking at what I would change to improve handling and decided on the H&R roll bars and a whitelines rear brace. I did also notice the CR-15 front strut brace online and could not pay the money for it when its essentially a bit of inch bar with a 3mm wall – so I made one, lucky I had a bit of 25x25x3 bar a metre long laying around, so I cut some bits out exactly the same as the CR-15 and it fitted a treat! Roll bars in (Rear ARB is a **** to remove btw), rear brace fitted and homemade front brace in – it was a different car! Hiding as low as I do and having all this new chassis equipment the car literally handles like a go kart!

Gearbox rebuild and upgraded clutch and flywheel, Powerflex transmission insert

For a while now I’ve been slowly loosing second gear up to the point where I could only engage second if I rev matched at a certain speed and that’s no way to enjoy a car like this. I had the gearbox removed by a professional, this is not something I was willing to “have a go at”, sent to a gearbox specialist to be rebuilt. While it was out, I also ordered an uprated clutch and flywheel kit from Darkside developments and had that fitted along with the Powerflex transmission insert both part A and Part B. All back together and still on braking in miles so can’t comment just yet – what I can say is, my wallet is so light now I can’t barely feel it

AEM water methanol injection

For Christmas, my other half brought me a methanol injection system! She’s keeper aye  very easy to fit just time consuming. All the hardware is hidden under the passenger side scuttle panel and the controller is mounted in the boot, so unless you’re looking for it you won’t find it! Have yet to test meth on/off ect yet, all installed while the gearbox was out – still bedding in

Powerflex adjustable camber bush
Sat on my desk, ready to install – just need the time! Come back soon for more 
