these stock turbodown pipes look so restrictive.

i thought my y-pipe and exhaust system got rid of all that..


well got the car in the air and remove the front lip and undertrays

whilst there i changed the oil and filter.. it was not needed but might as well perfect chance to do it..







now get these y pipes off and all other stuff in the way to access the turbo downpipes..


this is a big job and not for someone with no patience





















now the turbo downpies were off time to remove the stock actuators..

this is a pain in the ass job...

am still in process of getting these fitted few small issues to fix and then they will be in...







small eh




am also fitting some hks ssqv with polished pipes and hks drop in filter and also fitting some hks racing plugs



we also fitted some new retainer clips to the calipes..

you will get issues with your brakes clicking once you have done a few miles on them, factory missed them out.

Some places are saying to drop the engine to do those actuators and whatever else can be done. Less labor less time and much less of a pain iin the rear.

I haven't a clue tho.
i have got them off just a pain in the ass..

we done all above in 18 hours..

but worked cautiosly too

Are you gonna vent to air or recirc - I am just curious as to what they will sound like. I know a lot of people don't like the woosh but I do. When I get it mapped I am tempted to go the same route.

wow excellent stuff Jurgen, great pics. I can't believe you did all the work without a ramp !

You know your hard work will have paid off as soon as you start her up. will sound so sweet with your Ti exhaust.

Will get base map sorted for you, datalog and we'll customise, and also if you want will come up to santa pod this weekend with Consult III etc.. improve gear changes.

Just get the 18's sorted :)
