    Jonezy's MK4 Golf TDI

    So the turbo went pop the other day. Decided to strip down the engine etc today and turbo is destroyed, camshaft is worn badly, rounded off bolts in the inlet manifold, rounded off bolts in the bottom crank pulley and I've had enough. Golf is now up for breaking and everything is available. It's the final straw with the car now I've decided to cut my losses and give in. Will be sad to kill it but I'm sure I'll find something else.

    Rns315 DAB

    Kenwood DNX520 are around £450 used on eBay. I think I’ll fit one of those. They look oem, have a bigger screen and retain all factory features and controls. Absolutely extortionate at £999 new in my opinion. At least when you drop £1k on a apple product it’s quality, even if the price is ridiculous.

    #Gearbox&Brackets So i'm back and with updates... only a small one for the time being but im here! I got up and dragged my ass to work this morning, carrying the gearbox and brackets with me, so this is the box from months ago when i gave it all a good going over This morning was easy as i spent so much time before cleaning it up and constantly spraying it with degreaser and brake cleaner, that it only needed a quick going over before masking up! gearbox masked up ready for the oven.... Same as the block, final degrease, blow over with some really good etch and smash on the black! easy peasy Gearbox is a wrap, Onto the brackets. To top it off i done the gear selector thing, Is this enough for ya @jamieprang I hope you guys enjoy this update and are glad to finally seeing some more pictures and movements! i hope to be back soon with some more bits and bobs being done, I have to admit its been to long and ive got the love bug again! Time to stop messing around and get this car built! Until next time my dudes Peace D

    Rns315 DAB

    It does but I was thinking VCDS would let me know if I had it instead of dismantling my dashboard to take the head unit out and check for the aerial plug hole.

    I have absolutely no knowledge, but wouldn't DAB need a different aerial?

    I have a 2016 RNS 315 with Bluetooth, parking sensors and rev cam. Am I correct in assuming DAB is simple to code in? There is a local guy with VCDS on gumtree who will check for £15. I’m thinking that is easier than taking my dash apart to look for a fakra connector that I’m pretty sure will be there on a 2016? Thanks

    I do posses the only penis of the relationship... but i most definitely am not the man. "happy wife, happy life"... i'll agree to just about anything if it equals a nice quiet life. Saying that she generally does make a very good point..... my point is generally something along the lines of... "but look how cool it is, we NEED one".

    Hi there the gearbox tune is just my attempt, its pain to get the gearbox software right. I'm started a few threads to generate xHP interest - if we show there is a lot of interest they may develop a solution for us too https://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/xhp-for-vw-audi-who-is-interested.380087/#post-3334075
  21. Battery had died on my Scirocco 2.0TSI and after getting it started back up the abs light , traction control and handbrake light keep flashing and beeping too. Brake fluid is fine. I read somewhere that these cars can lose there coding or something and you need to get the code from the dealer but im not sure.

    Those seats are unreal, nice purchase mate! I'll be watching the engine swap too, I want to do the same in my 2.9VR Corrado soon

    any recommendations for a gearbox tune please mate, I'd like to get rid of the "clunkiness" when dropping down low gears but my bank manager won't sanction $1800 for an APR tune... nice work with the power you are producing, very jealous...

    Update 63: So where do I start with this update... quite a major one I guess, and I guess it's been overdue too. So it was my birthday not too long ago, and what better way to treat myself than buying a new present for the car So... here's a little clue: Clue number 2: Ok ok, time to spill the beans! Right, so what was it that made me wanna change/upgrade? Couple of reasons really: - Newer engine. The 3.2 has newer management and is a general improvement on the 2.9 12v VR6 in a number of areas. - Still a VR6. I didn't want to take the VR6 character away from ANN.. it's always been one for as long as I can remember, and you can't beat that soundtrack either! - The 2.9 was starting to show signs of age.. I don't really want to part with the engine, so once it's out I can rebuild it in my own time. - The engine bay was letting the car down majorly in my opinion. Doing an engine swap gives me the opportunity to freshen up the bay with some fresh paint! So some info on the engine: - 3.2 V6 from a DSG Audi TT Mk1. - Covered approx. 100k miles - Came as a complete package from a single car So why a TT engine? After reading several threads and asking a few questions on Facebook groups, the TT engine is the best bang for buck. It gives the 250bhp out of the box like the Mk5 engines.. but doesn't have the complication of the FSI fuel supply system. They're also fairly common which means they're not too expensive and parts are relatively easy to come by. The parts I've got in the conversion package: - Engine - Wiring loom from engine to fusebox, and from fusebox to ECU - ECU - All ancillaries - Throttle pedal and associated wiring - Diagnostic port My plans for the engine are to strip it down completely, right down to the block. I'm then going to replace the timing chain as they're known to stretch over time, and there's no better time to do it. Then I'm gonna paint the block in factory colours, making it look really crisp and OEM. At the same time i'll be replacing/refurbishing all the bolts, mounting brackets, tanks.. the lot. Whilst the engine is out of the car, I'll be deleting the ABS and running new stainless steel braided brake lines throughout the whole car, changing every component of the braking system so it stops on it's nose as it should. There are a few more plans along the way, and I'll be keeping the detailed updates coming regularly Hope you guys enjoy the read! Gurpal

    Vw Mk2 Jetta Coupe 4motion Build.

    Appreciate all the comments, Progress is a little slow at the moment but i finally have the shell booked for paint 2nd week of December which i'm looking forward to as i will be helping prep it. Other final bits i've managed to do is get the front seats runners fabricated to take the TT mounting rails. Test fitted the Momo RS GT seat after i finished mocking up the runner brackets. The seats are not too bulky and wide so look quite spacious and match the top curve of the scirocco rear seat. Photo of the runner bracket i made up as the TT rails are a little wider than the seat runners. The other seat has been stripped down had to do a weld repair on the base also plan on repairing the foam The drivers side door card had sagged on the arm rest from 30 years of use so decided to reinforce the area with fiberglass Plugged the manual window and mirror winder holes. Will hopefully use the electric window wiring off the TT so decided to use the window switch and mirror adjustment, moulded some gloss perspex to house the switches in the speaker pods which i haven't seen done yet, should look slightly hidden I've also booked the seats, door cards, headliner and pillars to be retrimmed beginning of January . The middle section will be done in MK5 GTi Interlagos Tartan/Plaid and the outer section on the seats will be black alcantara, back headliner and pillars, and the door card inserts will also be tartan The interlagos fabric is quite hard to get hold of now but hopefully the one i've bought turns out to be as described. few inspiration ideas Will updated soon on the prep work and other few bits

    I’m shocked by how well it drives. Much quieter than the vans I test drove and miles better than a ford ranger. Spec is as nice as my Volvo XC60 lux nav polestar lease which goes back next week. I went over budget by £5k but I really liked it. Trying to avoid buying the hertz components I’ve just been looking at. The rns 315 I’ve got lacks DAB which sucks too
