Hi folks, I'm back ..it's Beethoven. It is indeed a while ago, but I had my reasons.I've long been out of action due to severe back problems ... but meanwhile still keep searching and finding modifications.

 

Did I tell you that I've done an engine swap, from 2.0 tdci to 2.2 tdci? Now, you know  :) .
Finally I've  my 18 "alloy's  powder coated and mounted AVON 225/40's....summer-tires.
Still, haven't done a dyno-run -_-  :( .
I'm looking for a good place to mount a boost gauge, but I want to have him "built in" somewhere in the dash AND within "eye-range". Otherwise, no deal ;)  :D  :lol: . Just joking. 
I'm crazy, but I got it into my head to mount Recaro seats and I have ordered them in POLAND, cheap & in very good condition :)

Sorry to hear about your back

 

Car looks good - it would be good to see dyno results

 

here is where i fitted my boost gauge -

(its not ideal for visibility - but keeps it out of the way)

 

The other switches/ gauges  are for: - Boost controller arm, Manual on/ off for electric water pump, disable torque restrictor defeat, in ash tray - electronic fan controller (bought to control electric warerpump), with combined water/ oil temp and voltmeter (digital LED), and another controller with water temp and volts

 

(i run a sleeper and wanted the instrimentation but to keep it discreet/ hidden- thats 5 guages and 2 controllers and a switch all hidden under the ashtray cover!)

 

Alternatively you could fit the boost guage on a pod on the dash

 

Have you done a build thread? if not, you should start one!
