Nice new goodies  :happy2:
Also the pliers set is very handy!!
Saved me too a lot of time and open knuckles! :grin: Learned it the hard way in the past! :rolleye:
I'm still learning the ropes of doing my own mechanics but when I helped my mechanic with upgrading my GT Sport I learned how handy some proper tools can be. :smiley:

Somehow been a while without checking up on this  :thinking:


Cars looking great and really good on track. As usual you've done things properly  :congrats:

Be interesting to see what comes of your tuning issues and hope you get it sorted and make the best of a cracking car as soon as you can  :drinking:

Thanks mate!  :drinking:

My tuning issues are related to the DSG box, as far as I know. I know my current tune is reliable but I take good care of my cars so I know the box can be pushed a bit more safely.

Either way this will have developments till the next Revo sales prices. :popcornsoda:

  • ECS Tuning Billet Aluminum Oil Filter Housing Kit 2.0T

  • ECS Magnetic Sump Plug With 10 replacement Washers

Next week I'll contact the local SuperPro dealer to get the adjustable ball joints. :smiley:

Nice touches, always fancied the housing and plug myself as I'm always changing the oil.  :happy2:

Yeah, I'm trying to get this project finished in the next couple of months. Then it will be just maintenance and more track oriented bits (pads, tyres, if the budget allows a new set of wheels just for track use). :smiley:

This arrived from China today after 20 days. Cost €14,20/£ 11 from ebay.



Heavier than I expected for such a small tool. Already tested it with one of the coils I have at home and it fits nice. :smiley:
