So some pics of the process - which was actually a lot of fun last night -


Tom and Panos at the garage after we removed the hood

Posted Image



Removed the dump tube - and started trying its new location

Posted Image



Tom went on with the painful thing - yeah . . . I had to LoL

Posted Image


Then we started trying it on to see how it was , and what it needed . . .

Posted Image



Today I painted it matte black - and polished the upper part

Posted Image

I thought of wrapping it in DEI exhaust wrap to make it look even better - no actual need - just thinking about it . . .



Interior (fiberglass section) protection (no, it wont burn)

Posted Image



On the car

Posted Image


And as I left it today . . .

Posted Image


In the week to come - I am thinking of putting a ring of aluminium like the one I have done on my headlight mod to make it look even nicer. We will see how this one turns out. :)


Oh and on a side note - some new orders to come from Mike @ Ringer Racing - some of them performance wise - some of them due to mileage of some things and taking precautions.

1. OEM Cam Chain Tensioner (AEB)

Posted Image


2. OEM Chain

Posted Image


3. Upgraded ApiKoL Rear Diff Mount (Red)

Posted Image


4. IE 06A Mechanical Belt Tensioner Kit

Posted Image


5. IE Lifters Set for 1/8T

Posted Image

As for the rear compartment -there is a lot of work going on - smoothing - cutting - painting - and more fabrication of new parts to come very soon . . .

some pics of its current condition after some paint (well a lot) , since the oem interior metal isnt painted from factory - due to it not being seen I guess . . .

More updates to come . . . Cheers :)

I need to fabricate my new IM first to install my .:R32 Throttle Body cause my OEM ones seems to be dead and doesnt act correctly at WOT. So vids will have to wait a bit. However, I cant stop smiling :D

No - it is not an Audi emblem - although it could have been one, hehe...

More pics to follow of the finished products - cheers :)

Sooooo....some pics of today's small but nice fabrication that took place in Thano's shop.

I will let the pics do the talking . . . and how we got from a piece of metal to the final rings I wanted for my external wastegate dump tube...

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Here are some ready ones , as shown before

Posted Image

Here is one with holes for screws . . .

Posted Image

Now . . . onto the installation time . .

I couldnt decide what theme to go with... I thought satin black . . .

Posted Image

Which was nice and subtle . . .

But then we opted for the raw finished one , to match the headlight theme going on . .

Posted Image

And the finished product - hope you guys like it as much as I do . . .

Posted Image

I have a lot of plates to try - play - see more styles - haha

Cheers, and a big thanks to Thanos for his help.
