With the help of a friend, the rear brake kit from Racing Brake got installed last night and so did the amazing Racing Brake wheel stud conversion kit.

The links to both items, encase you're interested
Rear Brake Kit that works for any MKIV car and I believe a MKI Audi TT
http://www.racingbrake.com/Two-piece...-Re-p/2172.htm
Wheel Stud Conversion Kit. The reason I went with these over others is that they put a super nice 8mm bolt head on the end of the wheel stud, so you can snug them up :thumbup:
They're 80 mm in length, so they are perfect if you wanna add spacers to your setup, either to clear the calipers or to get that perfect stance.
http://www.racingbrake.com/RB-Wheel-...xl-p/vw-80.htm
Here are the pictures from RB Site on the wheel studs.
The super nice 8mm hex head :thumbup:




You can get either Cone seat or Ball seat lug bolts. Sadly in my case I need both cone and ball seat lug nuts, since the OZ Racing Ultraleggeras are Ball Seat


Pics of the brake install.
Here's how great a job Espos Powdercoating did to match the caliper to the special order Blue without having the front caliper in hand. I think the only reason the rear looks different is the rear is cast, compared to the front caliper that's machined.

On the car with the wheel in place and I might be a little biased, but I think it looks Awesome!


This is how close the fronts would have been.


Actually the drivers side front has the wheel weights rubbing on the calipers, that's how snug it is with those Brembo 6 piston calipers and 355mm rotors.






That's it for today and hopefully the fronts can go on tomorrow.:beer:

I'm going to redo the engine harness in the RTDI, but I've been informed that I need an additional portion to the harness that a member has pulled for me, so if you could help me out with what the additional wiring I need would be great

Here's what is removed so far.


Thanks in advance for any help

The injectors got upgraded to the Race PD injectors with Firad +120% nozzles on them.

First though we had to bleed the brakes and get a drivers seat in the car, we had to use the seats that were out of my Jetta, while I source some Recaro Sporster CS seats, so my friend could drive it to his shop, where he's got his own lift and knows exactly where his tools are.

The injectors just need to be adjusted with a dial indicator before the car can be started and the tune can be updated.

So if anyone is interested in the BEW injectors with +80% Firad nozzles on the injectors, let me know

Here are a few pictures of the car outside the shop and a few at my friends shop.

Looking really good, it's nice to see someone continuing with this car. Where did you purchase the injectors w/ Firad +120% nozzles from? I am thinking about getting some for a build I'm doing.
Nice shop by the way.

Thanks Jon.

Yeah, I'm glad I was able to "rescue" the car and bring it to its full potential.

I got the injectors from Darkside Developments. I'm selling the +80% injectors if they'll satisfy your power goals

It's nice having a great shop to work on the car in and my friend who did the injectors has a nice shop as well, which is the shop that is in the bottom pic in post #19.

Nothing too huge to report, other than the "Race" PD injectors with +120% Firad nozzles on them went in last week and I was able to sell my stock hood, so it gave me a good reason to put the carbon fiber one on

I'm struggling with the TD Tuning Loader I bought on here, so I'm figuring out as I go with the guidance of Mike has been great. A lot of it had to do with my laptop with Windows 8.1 not loading the driver for the program. Took it home to my Windows 7 desktop and it loaded it just fine. grrr

I have to remove the current tune that is on the loader and then load the one from my car to the loader and have Mike modify it in time for a September 12th dyno day

There's nothing exciting about pictures of injectors, but I did snap a few pictures of the Eurogear Carbon Fiber Notchless hood. The fitment of the hood is pretty great. It just needs some minor tweaking to get it centered left to right, so the hinges need to have the holes ovalized just a little bit for it to be perfect.

Just a small update on the car. The new PD injectors with +120% nozzles are in the car and working on tuning the car for the new nozzles.

On a somewhat related note,I was able to stop by one of my sponsors 3Zero3 Motorsports while I was out in Denver for some more physical therapy at Craig Hospital.

They specialize in european vehicles and when I asked about TDIs, they mentioned that they service them as well with a mechanic that has TDI certification.

Anyways here are some pictures of their waiting area and shop.








And last but not least a super nice Bentley

Some progress was made this past weekend...the new Racing Brake front brake kit went on.

We're still going through some issues with getting the car tuned properly, so The decision was made to ship it to JFettig to get things ironed out.

Anyways here are a few pics of the front brakes installed.

Anything new for 2016? Good to hear the car is in good hands getting dialed in.

Sadly I've had a few medical issues to deal with over the past few months, so the car has been put on hold here for a little while

Sorry to hear. I was hoping you had made some major progress, and didn't have time to update. I'm living the AWD TDI life vicariously through this build. If only, if only...
