Those callipers will look awesome once refurbed.
It is based on 4 RS4 injectors, so we are looking at somewhere 470-500hp at the boost I am running in the video, at 7500rpm

Thank you

Never thought that it was making that for a second, wow.

Can see why this had to be retired from 'daily' status lol.

how difficult was it to convert the MED17 back to MED9?

Between the ECU and The body wiring loom, did you need to change much?
Also, if you had to do it again? would you swap other cars wiring over or splice and adjust like you did?

Hello there

Car has been running great and very strong, been enjoying it mostly



Although I do have some things to do it, i havent gotten to it yet due to limited time





I still need to get brakes installed, source the parts missing for the 4wd swap at some point, and probably source some wider front fenders for those massive tires

Cheers

More to come

Mike

Over the last two days I have read all 55 pages, what a transformation. Your dedication is admirable.

Incredible vehicle, I'm off to find some other projects of yours now.

So this is one of the last pictures with the car on the stock bronze colour



Removed them



I love me, a clean wheel arch even after the car having been used





Oh look, some Passat wheels



They should make for a nice sleeper status, wont they





It's not so bad actually, this will be fun for the next few days till my wheels come back with a different colour





Cant wait to get them back. Any guesses ?

Cheers

Mike
