Another one :)
 

Noticed O2 sensors on your downpipe are really close to turbo. Try to ask around if that is the best position for them. 

Exhaust - with the set up you have at the moment you will loose typical VR6 sound these car make. It will be more like GTI so think about it before you fit it in as later on it will be pain to sort out.

 

Wish you a good luck :)

the O2 sensor position is set like that on the supplied CTS downpipe.

I will ask around as it does seems very close

Thought I found SAI block off kit on ebay for £30 but it says mk4 only not mk5/a3 :(

I was wondering the same after reading through. Would be a shame if it didn't.

Lucifer after reading about your turbo build sounds like an absolute monster.

They guy hasn't been on since Dec 2017

so....

 

yes it did get built.

 

i am not a hugely technical guy so i sort of held back on putting the build on the forum. 

i had to rely on the guy building it to get the job done and he was not taking any outside influence

 

lots of things did not go quite to plan (i am sure a lot of you boosted guys have had the same)

 

i will try and pick up where i left off

so a home made block of kit was done

after the advice on here and elsewhere the o2 sensors were put into the exhaust manifold

 

attached are a couple of photos of the car put back together before o2 sensors were repositioned

once the engine was back in it was off for a base map

 

a couple of advisories to deal with:

 

to drop the air intake down behind the lower left front grill

re-position the o2 sensors
