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
Removed the dump tube - and started trying its new location
Tom went on with the painful thing - yeah . . . I had to LoL
Then we started trying it on to see how it was , and what it needed . . .
Today I painted it matte black - and polished the upper part
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)
On the car
And as I left it today . . .
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)
2. OEM Chain
3. Upgraded ApiKoL Rear Diff Mount (Red)
4. IE 06A Mechanical Belt Tensioner Kit
5. IE Lifters Set for 1/8T

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

Parts started arriving inside my garage - hehee....
New AEB Chain Tensioner and New OEM Chain . . .
And I heat wrapped my WG pipe. Meant to go titanium wrap - but I couldnt find one today , so this will do for now . . .
Cheers , more to come . . .

A teaser of what we fabricated today with the help of a friend of mine who owns a shop of his own to make beautiful things..
No - it is not an Audi emblem - although it could have been one, hehe...
More pics to follow of the finished products - cheers

Needs proper video/audio to do it justice

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...
Here are some ready ones , as shown before
Here is one with holes for screws . . .
Now . . . onto the installation time . .
I couldnt decide what theme to go with... I thought satin black . . .
Which was nice and subtle . . .
But then we opted for the raw finished one , to match the headlight theme going on . .
And the finished product - hope you guys like it as much as I do . . .
I have a lot of plates to try - play - see more styles - haha
Cheers, and a big thanks to Thanos for his help.
