Saw I've now tried to upload some pictures of the engine build a couple times on here without any luck... The site has been giving me some trouble last month or so with sessions running out among other stuff..

If you're on Facebook, then Darkside Developments just posted some of the pictures on the page yesterday. So you'll have to see them on there for now untill I sort out the laptop problems I'm having with the board  :fighting:

Also got a few things incomming....  Hopefully it'll work with the pictures since brakes are almost ready for show, engine is getting more and more complete as the days go - SOON ready for install!

Thank you guys :)

Will post some pictures of the brakes stuff later this week when all parts are collected the different places hehe - Can't wait to have this stuff installed on the car.

Had the wheels and arches of today and tackled the little surface rust I had. Did treat it with some Dinitrol rust protection so the arches are now ready for the brake, hub, spring and dampers to be installed  :party:

Clean example you've got here.  :happy2: Your time and effort clearly shows. Loving your interior. Wish I had a Mk6 flat bottom like yours man a lot grippier to hold than mk5s.  :happy2:

Thanks guys :) Finally decided which turbo to go with so now I just need to buy it  :indifferent:    Then hopefully I can book my mechanic to swap out the engine sometime in April and then have it mapped right after, not fan of driving it without having the engine map tweaked to the new parts :)


Will be collecting my front calipers and the painter monday, will post up a picture of the brake parts when I've got everything ready for install

Yeah, read alot about upgrading brakes - this setup did however fit my needs the best and was the lightest :)  Big discs looks cool, but also add a lot on weight and since this car wont ever see a track day there's no need for bigger setup to be really effective :D

Been a while since an update in here.. Still haven't got the brakes on the car since I decided that I also wanted to change all the parts on the rear subframe while I should have it stripped for fitting alloy rear hubs.

Anyway.. Should hopefully be fitted once my mechanic is back from Worthsee VAG gathering.


Had my minds towards doing a CECM + CCM conversion to BCM. So I now got all the wirering diagrams done and ready to do the retrofit - hopefully without any errors when it's done.

Ordered a "087 AL" BCM that is the highline+ version and will support it all.. So will also retrofit HBA (High Beam Assist) - wanted this for ages and it's the main reason why I'm doing the BCM conversion hehe.

Will remove the interire dash for this job, just to make it alot easier to reach all the wirering underneth the dashboard. This gives a great oppertunity to fit a new air duct to the fresh air intake for the A/C so I will change the duct from 2 flap motor operated one to a single motor which is needed if your car has the 2 motor system and you retrofit a newer climatronic panel.

Hoping this can be done in a weekend  :party:


Also bought another ECU/ECM since my current one won't give the right signal to turn on the A/C compressor - this new one hopefully will :)
Will be replaced as soon my mate got time to help retrieve current file from my ECU and help put it down to the "new" one.
