So mild steel is even ok for the flanges that attach to the head right? I guess I never thought much about what I can just build to make routing everything look cleaner and easier to place sensors.

I would think the only issue with mild steel for them is the worry of rusting since it is a coolant flange.
Makes things nice since you can just use GM sensors instead of easytherm

Re: FV-QR (sdezego)

IIRC WolfGTI did this on his ITB 20v, just hacked apart a 16v header and used a 20v head flange.

WolfGti originally used the stock Euro N/A AGN 20v Ex mani and Mk3 downpipe. This is really a piss poor manifold, but good in that it is bolt on. He later had Joe build a custom 4into 1 header which came out really really nice.

I knew he used the stock euro NA one at first, but I could have sworn he hacked up a 16v header eventually to make one. Maybe I need to lay off the cold medicine

how much do they weigh?
Really glad you didn't do red calipers. The silver color looks good.

Axles are all done!! Shortened and trued :thumbup:

Pics should be forthcoming...
If I send you a set of axle shafts and measurements could you do a set for me? The mk1 likes to bind inner CV's and sheer them.

You can export the .vex maps from MS1 and import into MS2/3, but since MS1 maps are not 16x16, you need to do quite a bit or work. ...in a good way. More resolution is always a better thing.
I was reading a bit to the contrary of that. What I read was that anything more than 16x16 is useless and the ECU interpolates the numbers very well between values in the tables.

Funny story though, my daughter came out in the garage the other night and was watching me work. Apparently, she is going to be a typical woman becuase her exact word were (and I sh!t you not), "...and dad, when you are going to finally put this new motor in? I'm tired of looking at it..." wtf :screwy:
She probably saw what was happening on vortex with this build :wave:

I may still beat Shawn to having a project finished :laugh::laugh:

Wait you got work done? Did your kids go to camp for the week or something? :laugh:

Paint work looks nice Shawn!

I know you won't use cheap parts in your build but the frozenboost AWIC heat exchanger fits perfect against the core support with no cutting and the bumper clears with room to spare. Just throwing it out there if you decide to go AWIC

If I wasn't already in for 2 intercoolers and countless amounts of time, I would have went this route. I highly recommend anyone in this day and age to go AWIC. The IC that I chose (yet to be identified yet here) that led me so far was soo close to not needing a massive overhaul :laugh:
Pic to show it in action


Back to OCD awesomeness :thumbup:

Nice. Plus you can run Tow Hooks (if you wanted), both full brake ducts and use the G60 IC duct for your Oil cooler :laugh:

I can't say I hadn't given it thought..
IMO the best reason is you don't have to cut the rebar at all. Therefore keeping safety equipment functional :)

oh yea, in case you are wondering this is a VAG IC. From a Euro Audi S3 2.0t

It is a Tube/Fin as you may have noticed. There are pros and cons to both Tube/Fin and Bar/Plate IC. I decided this was best since it is basically blocking the Radiator?

I also decided I wanted the IC in front of the Condenser. Great for the IC, but maybe not so much so for the A/C :D
Holy effing crammed space!

I bet you end up going AWIC by the time this project is done in 10 years :laugh:
