Received my new 50mm wastegate yesterday, going to have my 100mm Downpipe, wastegate flange and boost pipe all welded up this weekend on Saturday, then just waiting for my Apexi in the mail and good to go for initial tune :)

My welder has not had power for the last week due to a faulty cable in his area so nothing more has been done with the Downpipe but manifold is completed and looking great, will pick it up when I get time and install, just need to drill out the turbo housing to fit a boost line for the wastegate.

My Apexi PFC is here in Johannesburg, just waiting for it to arrive at the post office and then I have all my pieces to go for my tune, finally!!!

Finished up my AN6 line for my turbo feed this weekend, dam its not as easy as it looks to do these fittings, especially for the first time, hands are trashed.

So not much of an update, did a quick spray paint job on the windscreen plastic just to see how it would turn out and it came out great.
Sprayed it in satin black and did 2 coats.

So managed to spray some stuff this weekend and also moved from the Apexi PFc to the Microtech LT8s as the Apexi has very few tuners here in SA, the mircotech has more guys that can tune with it so better option to use.

Here are some before and after pics of the spray job.

I also made a cover for my dash speaker hole as the OEM one just crumbled when I took it out.

Here are the pics of the stock ECU with the Microtech mounted to the back which fits perfect on the stock mounting of the standard ECU, I also painted and vinyl wrapped the stock ECU just for good measure.

Yeah man, not good ones :shock:

The Microtech ECU was fried when I bought so now Im fighting with the guy I bought it from for a refund and now I don't have an ECU, so back to square one.
Just waiting on my mani and DP to be completed and then looking for another ECU to buy but no one in SA has a Microtech for me so will propbably go back to the Apexi. The joys.

Coming along nicely man!!

Perhaps I missed it but is this still a twin rotor?
Now, I admit that there are two distinguishing features that you can use to tell apart the Audi sedans. One is LEDs. The A4 has roughly seven, while the A8 could guide damaged ships to the mainland.
