Edition 30 powered by RBS
« on: December 28, 2015, 01:10:37 AM »
Hi everybody :wink:

First of all I want to thank all the guys who made this fantastic page possible!! Respect!! :happy2:

As promised in the new member section:

Now it's time to the fun part :wink:

I've been collecting parts over the last 10 months or so thanks to the mods section here but I hadn't time to mount all the parts yet. Some of them still have to come from oversea & other european countries. Once all of it has come home I'll make this thread nice & ordenly! :innocent:

I'll post some pic's of the parts that I've received so far.
Hope you will all enjoy it.
Here we go  :jumpmove:





















And obviously the very first mod on a mk5 GTI



Now some interior pic's ( sorry for the dirty car :ashamed:) but next weekend if the weather is ok I'll give her a good wash :wink:

I made up my mind to see first which way I would go with the Ed 30. Since I had it in my garage, I started to search what was possible with that engine. Boy was I in for a treat! :drool:
Specialy with the BYD motor! I gave it a big thought what I would do. In the end I said : what the h... : let's go banana's! You only live once!
So now I hope get all the parts for the engine in January-february. Then start to build it up slowly :innocent:
Next would be the dyno & map. After that suspention & brakes! Now on the brake part, I'm still having a dillema : would I go for Porsche 6 pot or audi R8 8 pot?! I don't think the 8 pot would go under 18". I had the old 993 turbo calipers under the Rallye and they were fantastic!!
I've read a lot of good reviews here on the forum about the 6 pots!
So this is a little thinker but no rush :wink:

Really nice collection of parts you've got there. I hope you can get all with no delays. :smiley:

As for the brakes, personally I wouldn't go for the R8 8 pot, you'd need to change your master cylinder for the RS3 to really take advantage of their power. TTRS or Brembo 6 pot are more than enough with R32/S3 rear brakes. It's just a matter of getting better pads for those calipers if more braking power is needed. :wink:

I'll be following your build thread. :drinking:

PS: I have a friend with R8 front calipers and they fit under some 18'' wheels. :smiley:

Hi and thanks for the great advice :happy2:
I'll do my best to get it all done. It's just always the waiting for parts delivery which is the most time consuming.
Have you got a picture of the R8 setup?

Hurdy had those brakes in his mk6 R20. You can find a picture here: http://www.mk5golfgti.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=84978.0.

@ ShoDuchi: thanks for the link mate.  :happy2: I'll read it tonight.

I just received my wintermats  :jumpmove: It was a pain to find them over the last year!!
Here in Belgium they are absolete!!
Was looking on the web and found them but at silly prices :stupid:  A buddy of me told me there were some sets left in Holland. So I called the company  and they had them stil in stock! I jumped in my car in the afternoon and drove 200 km to collect  them. :signLOL:  I'll post some pics tonight.

Looks like some nice power figures will be matched with some serious chassis modifications. Looking forward to what the styling will be based on these mods! :happy2:

Moving over to Flickr, sorry for the broken picture links!

Will the company deliver? I've been looking for the winter mats.

Thanks mate.

Did these also come with the oval fitting? If not can the circle fittings be replaced with the oval ones from some old mats?

Hey dazza, what do you mean with oval fitting? I just checked them. The fronts have indeed 2 clips wich can be removed. But I have round clips in my car. Is there a difference in them??
