Enjoy watching it.

For those you don’t want to waste 25 min of their lives I made shorter version

Started watching it and firstly, fair play to you for doing what you did, would of been easier to scrap it and buy another. Although it was quite interesting I got bored and stopped watching half way through part one never mind part two. Maybe a bit on the lengthy side.

Cheers

Thanks for you input. You should watch part 2. There is more interesting mods.
Iím not gonna lie it is long. Itís also very hard to squeeze nearly 5 years of modification in about 10min.

So what diff were you running to keep up with that 350bhp A3?

I couldn't see all the video as I'm at work, but is that the bent car that you've replaced panels on or did that car become a donor for the next?

Actually it was 350hp A8, second clip it was A8 with around 420hp. My diff is stock. Chassis was broke in half. I purchased another one of eBay and swapped everything around.

Nice work! So is this now an 02 car?

How comes you didn't hold out for a later shell without the CAT?

Love the meth button.

Rob,
Cheers Rob. Correct, 02 car because chassis I purchased was registered in 2002.
I was lucky that I found one...

05 chassis been beyond repair.

Thank you. I guess 600hp moves me faster from point A to B then before. I’m normally not using all of its potential because it’s to much, but when I do it handles pretty well. Traction is a problem in first 2 gears after that is ok. Chassis been reinforced (sub floor). So far holds very well.

Water meth is the second best mod after supercharger. You will gain around 40-50hp without additional tuning. There is no drawbacks. Only gains.

Was thinking more to reduce inlet air temps after repeated pulls (ie trackday), so it doesnt pull the timing and reduce power when it gets hot.

Where in the system do you inject the meth? And where do you buy meth!

I like how you have mounted the tank and pump by the way!!

In charge pipe after intercooler, before intake manifold around 20-25cm before temp sensor. Iím buying meth on eBay and mixing with water.10L of pure meth cost around £19.
