Mk5 General Area / Re: GTi Mk5 or Mk6 as a race car?
« Last post by bricksnmortar on Today at 02:12:30 AM Started by bricksnmortar  »
DSG is better on acceleration, so on a circuit with good straights to push the limits of acceleration, it should be better. You can check teo_parvu's topic where he retrofitted a DSG to his Leon Cupra to use on Time Attack races: http://www.mk5golfgti.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,96115.msg955433.html#new. :smiley:

The DSG might need an upgraded oil cooler which isn't cheap. If you mind budget a manual car will be cheaper to setup, I think.

I will reach out to Teo thanks for that.
Do you know if the DSG box has significantly different car corner weighting? It seems to be a 20kg heavier car weight, but are the gearboxes in exactly the same position or is the DSG weight heavily over one wheel (worst case for handling)?

The one from your ebay link is good. Get a genuine or get the bigger IC replica of the THS. I wouldn't buy from an aftermarket company without knowing if it works well. The others I've mentioned are known to work well for a K04.

Mk5 General Area / Gold monzas?
« Last post by shail on Yesterday at 11:39:35 PM Started by shail  »
Getting my monzas powder coated as they are in bad shape.

Wanted silver chrome with grey inserts, but powder coater said that for some reason the chrome silver bubbles on previously badly corroded areas, so he's not happy to do.

Choices - which one would you choose?

1. Any single colour - £120
2. Any two tone e.g Silver with grey inserts - £240

Single colour seems like much better value, but want colour? I'd love to see a red golf with gold monzas - too much?

What would you do?  Choices choices...,

Cheers guys ill give Audi a ring tomorrow and see what they can do. What's this about a discount??

If not, thanks Shoduchi, I just found this On ebay.de :https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Original-Audi-A3-S3-Ladeluftkuhler-Intercooler-1K0-145-803-P-Neu/182790123668#shpCntId

Seems to be a genuine part and cheaper than onlychargeddubs

Another option I've come across is OEM parts by brands such as Nissens and Van Wezel, are the any good? they seem to be a fair bit cheaper but I'm sure there's a reason for it!

Yes, it's flywheel. The dyno was a Bapro, so it measures wheel drag to calculate flywheel power as well. :smiley:

I think the mk6 GTI intake is much better than the mk5 GTI intake. Upgrading it would be something to leave for later after testing the engine output with the factory intake. You're not aiming for very high numbers where a less restrictive intake would be needed.

Yes, the 1K0145803P hasn't been replaced yet. You can always check if Audi can sell you one (don't forget to ask for the discount). I'm almost sure that ebay.de might have them cheaper than from Audi, though.

Ring Awesome and ask for John Glover, 0161 776 0777, ask his advice regarding changing the brake fluid/snapping the bleed nipple.
Always best to get a second opinion if nothing else.

There are some out there still; https://www.google.com/search?q=1K0145803P&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b-1

I plugged in the pn:1K0145803P into an Audi dealership, and they still show there being some available. But this I would confirm that they haven't got a non-alloy cap replacement or revised version for that part number.
