    Aren't those XXR wheels pretty much bbs ch reps? Bbs will probably weigh less as well (and cost a lot more)

    Prawn and BigAls A3 Track Car

    Big Al picked up the downpipe and exhaust parts today so shall be with nick tomorrow :) not the prettiest of welds, I'm a bit out of practice! But they're functional, everything is sealed up nicely and no big areas of burn through to ruin the flow

    Prawn and BigAls A3 Track Car

    Still love when they sent me a damn galvanized steel joiner instead of the ali one I needed (and ordered) to weld into the rest of my ali boost pipes... I tried claiming back from ebay and they wormed their way out of it claiming they only claimed it was "alloy" and not aluminium alloy despite...

    A3 8L Roof Racks

    There is a OEM roof rack for the 8L, I had one on mine for a good 2 years or so, can't fit a 7' 6" surfboard inside the car! Was nice and solid

    Imagine how bad the car would handle with a 4.2 v8 sat up in front with only FWD... it would be like driving a cathedral

    Metal is just metal! I'll grind them all flush then re-weld over them to give them a better looking "cap" and make sure everything is sealed. Should be able to touch up the inside where I can reach it as well

    Am i right in thinking you're still around the SW kinda area? If so then let me know once you've got the jig all sorted, i'm sure i can lend some of my time to pop over and assist with the welding if need be. TIG welder qualified up to nuclear standards ;)

    If you can find someone that will MOT your car without a cat then you might as well go for a decat, if that's a issue then stick a sports cat on.

    Considering those compression readings it would be interesting to see how much power you make on a fresh engine build

    Prawn and BigAls A3 Track Car

    I can't wait to get a track toy so i can have some adventures like this. My a3 used to give me some jip with the boost pipes blowing off but the s4 is too reliable (at the moment) for any shenanigans. I'm buying my new house and the main thing I've told the missus is that it needs off road...

    Forge pressure Intake valve?

    Forge ones require servicing every year approx £20 for a service kit. Can almost buy a new oem valve for that every year. And the oem one has been proven to work on high power used and abused cars
