Got an estimate for $440 to do:

Polishing the crank
surfacing the head
hot tank cleaning
bore and hone
spin balance.

Seems like a pretty good deal. Will get pictures up soon. Engine build most likely in July once work subsides a bit.

If you plan on doing main studs, you will have to add line honing to that, And you will also have to modify the windage tray since the arp studs are taller then the stock bolts

mec

I did see that you cut holes for the studs in your build, I will probably end up doing the same, maybe just get the machine shop to cut them out. I'll make sure to add line honing, I did not know that would be necessary.

I need to compile a list of seals, sealant, gaskets, bolts, etc that are not reusable and have to be replaced. So far all I can think of is:

Rod Bearings - included in IE rod kit.
Main Bearings - dealer
Main Studs - ARP
Head Studs - ARP
Valve cover gasket and sealant - dealer
Head gasket - dealer
Clutch bolts - VAST clutch kit
Sensor wheel bolts - dealership
Sensor wheel itself?????????
Diamond disc, center bolt, and crankshaft seal?????
drive plate bolts
sealing flange sealant
crank serpentine belt pulley bolts
serpentine idler roller bolt.
oil intake pipe o-ring
oil chain sprocket bolt
oil level thermal sensor seal
oil drain plug washer
oil pan sealant.
Anything else in the oil pan or balance shaft assembly I am forgetting?

This is just a basic list off the top of my head, but I want to go through ELSA or bentley and check out all the different bits that I need to buy so that I am not making 50 trips to the dealership. Feel free to add on to the list or correct me if I am wrong.


Thanks everyone.

I'm finally unpacked and back at home, been busy with work but I will posts some pics up soon!

Here's my mod list so far

Continental Extreme Contact DWS 245/35/19
Avant Garde M310 19x8.5
Koni FSD kit with Eibach springs
Stock exhaust with 034 HFC, RS4 catback was a fail, though If i can't sell it I might get a shop to make it fit.
Black grille, fillerplate, and inner headlights also CC'd
Poorly applied Clearbra on the front bumper lol. DIY
034 Catch can
Stage 1 HPFP and 145 Pressure regulator valve from hpfpupgrade.com
APR tuned
Podi boost gauge
2010 A3 RNSE retrofit
Dice DUO-103-AVW ipod kit
35ish% tint
S4 rear valence for future quad tip or rs4 oval tip exhaust.
carbon fiber three piece spoiler

Also just picked up a wiper stalk to retrofit the trip computer.

So far no good news on the turbo kit, but engine work is happening july-august.

mec
06-15-2012, 10:06 AM
The block is still in the car lol. I have picked out the parts I need for the engine, and I am waiting to hear back on a list of non reusable parts like stretch bolts, seals, gaskets, etc. I want to have mostly everything that I will need before starting because I have only a week to tear the engine out and put it back in. If I do need anything else, there's a VW dealership 2 miles from my house in Denver so that will help quite a bit.

what intercooler are you going with? i'm hoping the treadstone tr6 will be enough because i already bought the piping for it lol.
i'm saving for this turbo as well and will probably run stock internals on a mild tune for a while

You need to look at a TR10 or TR11 if you plan to stay with Treadstone, and go with a GTX kit.

tr11 looks promising. say goodbye to my crash bar lol.

Operator
07-01-2012, 06:26 PM
Well just about any FMIC that can handle what a GTX, EFR, or Precision can throw out will require crash bar modification. I know alot of people love AWE, but I'd go a different route If I planned to push 350+ awhp. And the 10, and 11 look stout enough for such demands, if you are going custom.

Awe is out of my budget for a intercooler. i will most likely go with a tr10 or tr11 and keep my custom piping. almost bought the tr6 today thanks operator. [up]
curious to see what intercooler the op is using.

Lol this build is not going to happen anytime soon, getting a hold of an engine has been an obnoxious process, two people have gone back on our deals, and three just keep wasting time, it seems they are not interested. So until I can get a reasonably priced engine this build is on hold.

I first started out assuming I would get a 2700 used recertified engine. Then I found a few engines for 1000 that was when the first person backed out on me. Then I decided I'll part an engine together so I found the short block for 650 and then started looking for a head, the guy then decided that the deal was only good for one night, and told me it was no good after 6pm, some random nonsense, then I went through a few other engines at 1000, and finally found an engine in south Carolina for 250!!!! I told the guy I would absolutely buy it fe him, i told him send me the shipping dimensions and I'll arrange shipping and pay you tomorrow, he didn't call forthe next three days and then someone else snagged it. I'm kinda sick of engine hunting, plus with arjuns recent failure in kind of just thinking of forgetting about this whole project and just getting a nicer car.

No, the guy was kind of an asshole lol. I ended up finding a cheaper engine, I believe he wanted 1000 for his, now I need to find a valve cover and variable valve chain housing for the engine I just bought! For $450, I was all over it lol. The Engine will ship the 18th and arrive probably a week later :)

Where are you guys finding your engines?? As soon as I have my K04 running smoothly, I am going to buy a spare and setup the project in the garage. That way I have a nice reliable fast daily for the next several months while I build the motor.

For all people that will read this in the future, this is the BEST way to do it. The cost of a spare easily outweighs the complications that can pop up when building engines

Stick with 2.0. It has a great rod stroke ratio. A 2.2 has a horrible rod stroke ratio.

Carbon was pretty bad, engine is mostl stripped now, needs a few more things off in the front. Working on getting engine components within the next two weeks!

Dan,

What do you mean lazy? Due to increased side loading force? I spoke with a guy about it and he says he gets into boost way earlier on a gt3071 and off boost he also has noticed a good amount of power.

What can we safely go up to without changing the stroke? I.e., if we went with a slight overbore?

changing the stroke means changing the crank, and 83.5mm is the biggest bore for an off the shelf piston. which would be 2033cc's

What about custom 86mm pistons without changing the stroke? Is this possible?
Eric

okswerve16
07-26-2012, 11:15 AM
I *think* its physcialy possible to run up to 85/6mm but that gives you like 2mm thick cylinder walls (which on boost would be nogood), and idk what headgasket you would run probably custom since I beleive ours is only 84mm.

mec
07-26-2012, 12:21 PM
It would be an expensive project, but possibly worth it. The 2.2 crank goes for $1400 and then you would need a diesel block, I'm not sure if everything would bolt up the same to it, so you may need custom machining, but then again you could sell your block and crank to help pay for it, alot of the 1.8 guys run FSI cranks to get up to 2.0 strokers.

okswerve16
07-26-2012, 12:45 PM
lol selling your block and crank mayyyyy get you enough money for custom pistons or the stroker rods for the tall block not both. Def not enough for even the crank and the eurospec crank I heard a bunch of people had problems with it bending, you can go with an oetinger 99mm but idk where you can even get those anymore...your looking at 4-5grand, probably more for all the machine work the block will need, just in bottom end for 0.2 liter displacement? And like dan said the rod ratio isnt that great meaning you cant rev it out.

IMO doesnt make sense financially especially for us fsi guys we already have the crank that everyone wants lol

mec
07-26-2012, 01:06 PM
I've never seen our cranks go for more than $400, and the block sells for approx the same, so Yeah, you probably not going to cover the crank, could get you the AHU block. Well there's always the 2.1 VW diesel crank as well, thats quite a bit cheaper, I'm going to just build my engine on IE 144x20 rods and probably 83 or 83.5 pistons for now. Maybe get the headwork done next year :)

Just picked up a snub mount and apikol rear diff mount too :) throwing those in next week!

Yeah you pick up a tdi crank those 95.5 and will give you 2.1l, but most need straighetning and balancing and lots of machine work so your still looking at 800-1000 but at least we dont need a new block lol

Good luck man, hows the engine break down coming along?

Eric

The *only* reason I would do a overbore on a 2.0T is if something catastrophic happened that caused scoring on the cylinder wall, and a simple hone wouldn't take it out.



It would be an expensive project, but possibly worth it. The 2.2 crank goes for $1400 and then you would need a diesel block, I'm not sure if everything would bolt up the same to it, so you may need custom machining, but then again you could sell your block and crank to help pay for it, alot of the 1.8 guys run FSI cranks to get up to 2.0 strokers.


I started to put together the parts for a 2.2L stroker a couple years ago for my car. To do it properly, and have a perfect rod stroke ratio, you need a ALH block from a TDI. It is taller than the 06A/B.

I acquired a ALH block and then started pricing everything, and it was $3k just for rods, custom crank, and custom pistons. That excludes bearings and all the other custom parts that would need to be fabricated to do the swap properly. It is horrendously expensive, and that makes it even more expensive when something breaks. Making a 2.2L using the 06A/B block is not a good idea. That is why when 034 Motorsports built that bottom end for their time attack car, they quickly found out how lazy it was, and then destroked it to a 2.1, and then, if I remember correctly, just went back to a OTS 2.0 stroker setup.

A 2.2L will make a GTX2867 w .64 A/R run out of breath rather quickly also.

Pretty much all stripped, havent had time to work on it much, just need to get the front side for the timing belt and all the pulley accessories, also couldnt figure out how to get the oil dipstick out so i left that in lol.
For now I am just looking for good deals on pistons and rods.

Finally finished the fmic install. I was doing pulls all the way from Vail to Denver, and it performed fantastic! No heatsoak at all and it just keep going and going. Strange thing is it seems like I have more power in the higher rpms!
+1 for Garrett intercoolers and at a total cost with piping and brackets of under $600 it was a great purchase.

Not yet, I should be good to go this friday. I need to get my basefile for Eurodyne still, but I have set up everything else so that I can throw the turbo on this friday so long as the file is available as well, But while I was clocking the turbo yesterday I noticed that my turbo kit is missing all of the hardware for the wastegate, all it has is the diaphragm and eyelit. Also think its missing several gaskets. I will definitely do a review on this turbo kit, so far I am not too happy with it, though its not in the car yet!

I was planning on installing the turbo today and tomorrow but I ran into a problem.http://img.tapatalk.com/d/12/10/21/asy4ymes.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/12/10/21/u6apege3.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/12/10/21/amuhuny4.jpghttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/12/10/21/ejepuby7.jpg

It looks like the Exhaust flange is mounted somewhat crooked to the piping. The studs for the turbo are all different sizes, and I believe the exhaust flange that bolts to the head is warped. Im taking it in to the machine shop on Monday to have it inspected. Figure it's worth the effort to fix it now vs breaking a stud in the future. And the first few pics make me want to get the edges smoothed so the exhaust gases will flow with less turbulence.

Customer support has been great though. Ray gave me a brief intro to maestro yesterday as well as some tips for setting up my turbo. If I can get the manifold all squared away I should have it on the car by next weekend!

You will love the Wossners (same exact as mine 83.5mm)!!! Give Evan a call on ring gaps on these as he talked to Wossner on specifics but otherwise follow the specs sheet that comes with it even if a shop says otherwise (thats what I remember Wossner saying if I remember correctly)... The pistons have no slap on cold start (due to ring gap)


I love my car now that temps are in the 40* in mornings! 373 to the wheels is awesome....lol

Dan[FN]6262
10-23-2012, 08:29 AM
Ring gap really doesn't have as much to do with piston slap, but piston to wall clearance does. Piston slap occurs when the bore is just slightly too large for the piston. So the piston "slaps" the cylinder wall until its heated up and expanded to the proper size. That's the easiest way I know how to explain it.

Also has a lot to do with what materials the pistons are made out of. Some pistons, like JE's that are made out of 2861 (IIRC) alloy are designed to expand, so the PTW clearance is slightly different then other manufacturer's like Mahle, who's pistons are made out of an alloy which barely expands.

mec
10-23-2012, 08:45 AM
If I remember correctly the Wossners had more silicon than Mahle or JE's. That by itself will cause less thermal expansion and prevent piston slap.

Vizi,

What are you running for PTW and ring gaps?

I acquired a ALH block and then started pricing everything, and it was $3k just for rods, custom crank, and custom pistons. That excludes bearings and all the other custom parts that would need to be fabricated to do the swap properly. It is horrendously expensive, and that makes it even more expensive when something breaks. Making a 2.2L using the 06A/B block is not a good idea.
yes and No.
In the late 80's / Early 90's Oettinger used 99mm and even 105mm stroke crankshafts in 8V and 16V builds and they ran fine.
1.44 and 1.37 rod ratio is acceptable for a motor (Honda's have less rod ratio on some motors).



That is why when 034 Motorsports built that bottom end for their time attack car, they quickly found out how lazy it was, and then destroked it to a 2.1, and then, if I remember correctly, just went back to a OTS 2.0 stroker setup.
Sorry this is incorrect. Today for 06A/06B/06F motors , the only option to gain 2.2L is with a 100mm stroke crankshaft & 83.5mm bore. Oettinger is no longer making engine components so the only company that makes a 100mm stroke crankshaft today is Eurospec. A crankshaft that is notorious for bending. The motor was not lazy , the crankshaft simply failed like the rest of the Eurospec crankshafts.

Bending crankshaft = failed bearings = failed rotating assembly.
2.0 92.8mm stroke forged crankshaft is the perfect balance between weight and rod ratio. 95.5mm crankshafts are almost 6 lbs heavier than 92.8mm stroke cranks.

Hope that helps.

For everyone curious about the Dowel pin kit from IE here's some info.

Kit comes with
1 Specially modified drilled and reamed timing belt drive gear
2 high strength alloy steel dowel pins
1 drill bit
1 precision hole reamer

Instructions:
1.) Position timing belt gear on crankshaft and drill into crankshaft using drill bit. Make sure to not exceed .415" into the crankshaft. Drill slowly and in control allowing the chips to come out of the hole. You may have noticed that this timing belt gear looks a bit different, it has 2 small holes next to the crank bolt hole. This is where the dowel pins will be placed. Thus you will drill into one of these holes, ONE ONLY. And do not go past .415".

2.) Remove timing belt gear and set aside.

3.) Lubricate the reamer with WD-40 and place it into the drill, run it slowly into the hole until it bottoms out, do not ream out the hole when finished, do not reverse the drill to remove it, simply feed it clockwise and pull the drill out with it still turning.

4.)Blow out the hole with compressed air and then carburetor cleaner until the fluid running out is completely clean and free of debris.

5.) line up the dowel pin with the crankshaft and and lightly tap it into place until it is fully seated, use a soft mallet, make sure not to mushroom the head of the dowel pin. Measure the installed height of the pin sticking out of the crankshaft. Correct height should be .33 to .39". DO NOT ATTEMPT TO INSTALL TIMING GEAR IF THE INSTALLED HEIGHT EXCEEDS .390"

6.) Keep in mind that you only need to use one dowel pin, the second dowel pin is there only if you damage or break the first dowel pin.

7.) Place the gear back onto the cranksahft, Gently tap it back into place.Do not lubricate! A clean joint free of oil and debris is essential.

8.) Install the damper bolt and torque back to spec, do not use an impact gun.

you need to have a -7cc dish (depending on if you decked your head or not) to yield anything below OEM CR.

Head is not decked yet. But will be. The pistons are actually for a BPY not a bpg or bmp, I think compression was 9.2:1. But the AXX engine in an a3 has the same specs as the 2.0t fsi a4 bpy/bpg so it will run perfectly

Looking "as good" and actually figuring out the math before you assemble your motor are 2 different categories.


The pistons are actually for a BPY not a bpg or bmp, I think compression was 9.2:1.
Same difference.
In order to yield a 9.2:1 CR you piston would need to have a negative CC dish of which you do not have based on that part # and schematics of the piston. Again CC the pistons before you end up with a tuning nightmare.

PART # : Wossner 9213D100
Cylinder head volume : 46cc’s (FSI timing belt with OEM valves , 45cc's with Ferrea valves)
Cylinder head gasket volume assuming 0.9mm thickness and 83.5mm bore = 4.93cc’s
Your piston has a negative dish of : Xcc’s
Total Vc = X + 4.92 + 46 = 50.92cc + Xcc

With 83.5mm bore x 92.8mm stroke = 508.2 cc’s

E (compression ratio) = (Vh + Vc) / Vc = 508.2 + (50.92 +X) / (50.92 + X) = 9.2 :1
X = 11.05cc

Wossner lists these as :
http://www.wossnerpistons.com/products/product-details/id/WOS-9213D100/name/wossner-piston-audi-a3-2-0ltr-t-fsi-turbo-83-5-mm-bore?cookietest=1

-5.38cc as dome volume removed but they do not list what is the dome volume protruding from the crown of the piston. If they are anything like what we had a few years ago then you are actually looking @ a total volume of +2cc!

-5.38cc in your configuration would yield almost OEM CR.
E (compression ratio) = (Vh + Vc) / Vc = 508.2 + (50.92 - 2) / (50.92 - 2) = 11.34 :1 CR

Which is higher than OEM.
There is a reason why Mahle Motorsport trumps all other piston manufactures in the market today.

To be honest I only read like 2 pages of that thread and it looks like one mistake that JE made with the TSI pistons. Anyway, dome CC's aside, not that I measured, but what about height? Maybe the wossners are shorter than the stock pistons and so adding the crown design is ok because the piston is shorter.

No point speculating about what if's. From the looks of it the pistons will yield a higher than OEM CR but CC'ing them will either confirm or deny your fears.

Got the car back today. Feels very slow, I'm thinking because the battery was unplugged while they worked on the fuel system and it lost the maps, but there is also a very loud clanking noise. I can't tell if it's the variator or the hpfp, anyone with the recall have this before? It sounds like a miniature diesel engine in my engine bay, and I know it's not the fsi injectors, it's an abnormal sound....

ericpaulyoung
11-07-2012, 01:35 PM
Maps won't go away from an unplugged battery. That sounds bad to me; like maybe they forgot something or missed a part. The only things in that area to make clanking sounds are the vacuum pump, variator system, and hpfp. How is your fuel pressure?

I used to have APR, I am running Maestro now. I havent had a chance to log, but on the drive home the car seemed slower, granted its back on the stock pump but the morning i dropped it off the stock pump was doing great. But there sounds like a diesel in the variator. Also the head shakes violently and you can see the hpfp vibrate, makes me think its definitely from the dealership repairing the camshaft. Also apparently they said my stock pump is fine so they didn't replace it. I am going to take it in tomorrow to have them check out the noise. I am relatively certain its something to do with the variator.....

mec
11-07-2012, 04:32 PM
Ok so I drove around a bit more the noise is only there when the engine warms up, when the oil isn't at operating temp or pressure is low there is no sound. Now I remember the sheet from the dealer said they did an oil change with castrol 5w-30, I've been using m1 0w-40, think that might have caused problems from switching oils bak and forth ?

Oh man, sorry, I don't have links. I need to get organized with my posts on Audizine. Sometimes I have problems finding threads that I've started as well. It was long time ago and I don't think I started a thread, I posted in somebody else's thread and some people replied with the same issue but nobody knew why.

The problem never went away, then I installed K0R + RS4 injectors + Maestro tune but now I have different issues. I whish I had an answer.

What warranty do you have? So they agreed to cover it even if you have a BT?

mec
11-09-2012, 04:19 PM
No warranty I am at 60k mi, but the Audi recall on camshafts and hpfp goes up to 120,000 and 10 years I believe. I actually have yet to install my BT. I am waiting on my manifold to ship back from RAI and I am waiting on my machinist to finish preparing my block. IE had an incorrect shipment of ARP mains so I ended up with Mains that were 1.5 pitch vs stock 1.25, so that slowed me back about a week. I just took my hpfp off and my boost gague and a few other goodies. The dealership exhaust, intake, FMIC, and catch can don't negative impacts on the camshaft, they are a stasis dealership thought so I'm sure that changes things.

mec
11-09-2012, 07:26 PM
I picked up the car about an hour ago and I was really surprised by Prestige![up]

Previously they replaced my cam, cam follower, and all the seals to get to the engine, as well as an oil change.

This time they replaced the rear timing housing around $500 just for the part, and the rear chain tensioner about $120 for that one, and they did another oil change. So around $700 in parts plus who knows how much labor. But they didn't charge me at all :)

And not only did they provide excellent service and quick return time, but they even washed my car, The wheels look cleaner than ever, and the car is shining:)

I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to get their cam warranty taken care of!

11-09-2012, 10:11 PM
That's great! I didn't know the cam chain tensioner is covered under the same warranty.

I asked this a few days ago in another thread but didn't get the answer. Do they have to replace the cam chain and tensioner when they replace the cams? I'm asking because I had my both cams, hpfpf, follower replaced but I'm not sure they replaced the chain or/and tensioner?

ericpaulyoung
11-09-2012, 10:19 PM
They don't have to replace them, but I would. If the two items are not covered, ask if they can throw them in just for the cost of the parts (since it takes literally zero extra work to use new parts when you are replacing the other stuff already).
- Eric

mec
11-09-2012, 10:26 PM
No, the camshaft warranty is specifically only for the camshaft, cam follower, fuel pump and the necessary gaskets and bolts to reseal the head.

This is why I was so happy is because when I received my car back there was a strong ticking noise and when I took it back to them they said they would cover the repair and replace both my tensioner and housing free of charge and although it is not a warranty part.

This is the G revision I think the part number was 06F-103-107-G with tensioner 06F-109-217-A. I think that the housing is the newest revision so I should hopefully not have a similar variator failure that Arjun experienced.

I left the dealership really happy knowing they covered the repair free of charge, and my car is running much better and quiet.

I think the tensioner was never updated, but the variator/housing was, I think thats the important part to update as well as the cap on the back that EPY has looked into and apparently the TTY screws back out of them.

EPY do you know if the screws back out on the new revision too?

ericpaulyoung
11-09-2012, 10:58 PM
Don't know of any cases, but when these fail they usually just go to a dealer or shop and the shop replaces all the parts without determining what was the root cause. It seems shops like to point in the direction of the engine and say "something over there blew up, start replacing shit".

Having said that, I had the new revision tensioner, and when I took my engine apart I pulled the adjuster wheel apart just out of interest. Bad news was that 3 of the bolts were loose and the last 2 basically welded in place. That is why I decided to get a new one and figure out how to keep all 5 tight. As long as the bolts don't back out, the new adjust wheel design CANT fail as long as the housing and valve work. Here is a look at the new design.

No I didn't See the guy coming. I had passed him in the left lane on a 2 lane road and I was slowing down at a yellow light when he hit us, he probably wasn't paying attention to the road.

The trunk isn't twisted it's straight, it has a tiny bend in the lower right corner. The reason the trunk looks twisted is because the fender and whole side was hit so vertically that the sheet metal bent in on itself and now it doesn't like up with the trunk or the natural fender lines.

Sorry about this, but as Dave said, it's a bit of a hassle but you'll end up with a nice DTM rear bumper. If the first shop you go to doesn't want to do a DTM end go to another, it's all up to the shop. I have a friend who's been fixing cars for years and he told me that.

Pull your cam follower and check it, if you noticed it has abnormal wear, concavity, etc, get it inspected at a dealership. Most dealerships want to see a CEL before they consider replacing the whole assembly, but some dealers will help you out.

@SHIRO1745

Yeah, I understand the perspective and making the best ouf of it, the worst part right now is not knowing if the guy will pay up, and how bad the damage is, I checked inside my trunk and there is definitely major repairs necessary, there appears to be sheet metal sticking out of the grey trunk lining. I have a feeling that this will be well into $3500-5000 to fix, maybe more! I am really hoping they don't say they are totaling it, finding another brilliant red manual with reasonable miles and upgraded cams and variator will be impossible.

shiro1745
11-13-2012, 05:43 AM
The repairs may as well be much more than that. I remember when I got rear ended, the trunk lid was damage like a tiny bit in a spot so just like a small dent(I made them reprint the lid) the bumper wasn't damaged too bad, basically had two cuts in it but they had to replace it, half of the tail light broken and i think the crash bar, but nothing else was damaged and I ended up with $3500 bill. What makes you think his insurance won't pay?

shiro1745
11-13-2012, 05:53 AM
Oh and don't make the mistake to go through your insurance. I did that and they raised my premium quite a bit. I didn't know back then and if i insisted a bit more they would have paid up front.

I'm not sure if his insurance will pay or not but at the time when we crashed he told me I'm sorry this is all my fault and I was freaking out andhe said don't worry I will pay I have insurance.

I did file a report with GEICO, his insurance is apparently GEICO but for "Government Employees insurance company" It has his name and all that jazz. I called GEICO today and they told me it could take up to 30 days before my case would move and they would decide if they had liability or not. I'm not sure if this guy is being sneaky or out of town, but he hasn't filed a report yet, so I may have to wait 30 days. I really dont want to go through my insurance either because of a high deductible and the fact that it makes no sense to pay my insurance when someone else hit me.

Well both insurances can pay. His insurance(GEICO) says they will pay if they can determine that they are liable, however he gets 5 days where geico calls him so basically there will be no progress this week. After that he still gets another three weeks where they send him letters and emails. so he gets a full month to slack off meanwhile I have a damaged car.

Same thing happened to me, his insurance said they were keep calling him every day and he wouldn't answer his phone. They said they cannot pay anything until they get in touch with him to confirm his fault. I even had the police report faxed to them and still wouldn't do anything, it said clearly that was his fault. That's when I decided to go with my insurance, they got me my deductible back after they got the money form his insurance but my premium still went up.

I think the ideal case would be to have him call his insurance company while you're there so he confirms everything. But not sure how easy is to make somebody call his insurance, he can say here is my info and deal with it!

Hopefully it all gets sorted out! People are sketchy.... I got rear ended a couple of months back at a stoplight as well and the girl who hit me didnt have an insurance card or license on her, claiming they were both at home, so I had a cop come to take an accident report (she gave me her name and number as if that would be good enough...). I called her up to start talking about whats gonna happen, and she didnt pick up. Went to her apartment complex, but supposedly for her room # there was like 7 different letter houses with that number.... like 404a, 404b....and the lady at the front desk was super shady and wouldnt tell me which one was hers. Kept calling until finally I left a message saying it was her last day or im taking her ass to court....that same day she called back telling me her phone just started working again, funny how that works right?? Turns out she doesent have insurance, but made it easy and just had her send me a check for 500 for my deductible, which she did. It all worked out in the end, but man was she shady, and the car she had was suspiciously new....all is well now though!

ill talk to the blue martini girls so they can take some stress away when you come down! im not sure how good of an idea this is but on my old car the headers did not match up either so i ended up putting an extra gasket in there to compensate. if you force them to mate up perfectly it can create uneven tension and could cause the header to break prematurely

"drop in" is relative. But I can say their cast manifold will survive the apocalypse.

I'll definitely take your word on it. It makes it tempting that you can use your same exhaust and you can get the turbo is stock location (as in below the manifold).

I would recommend you have a pro weld a tubular manifold, it will cost around 1k which is what the RAI mani costs, but it will be professionally crafted, you won't have to send it all the way to maryland only to receive it like 2-3 weeks later and it still needs work.

Better question is why doesnt IE sell 2.0t manis?

I am using the ATP manifold. It is very solid to say the least. I am not using the stock location one though. If I did it gain I would probably go that route and retain the stock motor mount.

Eric , which manifold are you using ? I thought they were all stock location .

Ah the next debate :) so ATP offers two bottom mount manifolds. One is in the "stock location" in that the down pipe mounts at the same location, and their big kits that mount further back and have better exhaust gas porting into the turbine but you have to replace the engine mount and the down pope is shortened quite a bit. I have the latter.

Is that referring to the kits that include the test pipe ? I'm looking at just manifold and turbo

Referring to the kit. Not sure which one comes separate. Make sure to ask.

I believe ATP makes 3 manis that will work (more or less), a T25, T30, and V-band. All cast manufacturing. I haven't heard of any 2.0T failures, but the 1.8T guys have tons of threads regarding cracked ATP manis

yeh, a quick yahoo/google search had a few threads pop up. And Dan I believe had 2 go bad personally.

This is been a problem discussion since I can remember in the B7 section. FSI causes higher EGTs. That, plus hanging a heavy BAT off the mani will usually lead to pre- mature failure. This is why the big boys built there BAT manis in their kits out of the high tech materials (Inconnel, etc)

Or, build a top mount, like some of the HTA guys in here. But even those have their weak points.
