BringerOdeath's "Better late than never build log"

Sooooooo, after much prodding from some forum members, (some who live near me), I have decided to start a very late in the game build log.




What I have done since I bought my car in 2012......

COSMETIC/ELECTRONIC MODS:

Ed's headlights, version 2 with 15 LED's (Black)(sold, no longer on car)

I installed these at the same time I installed the FMIC, and the install was pretty easy with the bumper off as many DIY's here show.

Ed's Golf R side skirts with OEM golf R skirt mounting rails(The non oem ones weren't rigid enough, but the skirts look and feel exactly like the OEM ones.

Color matched bumper insert

OEM bumper lip

Black and red badges and emblems

Dark cherry LED tails(soon with sequential turn signals)

Sequential mirror housings with puddle lights, smoked with DEuatokey LED modules.( work great, but have always had a ground error code in vcds, may have to ground them differently.)

OEM Door warning lights

OEM style pop up reverse camera

Auto light switch(currently not wired for auto or Rear fog, work in progress)

Rain/light sensor and auto dimming mirror(Currently installing)

Rear footwell lights

OSRAM Xenarc Headlights, black edition

Future Cosmetic mods:

Completing my R/L sensor install.....

Gloss rear black Valance

Porsche Cayenne exhaust tips(If we can figure out how to get them to fit well)

Sequential LED's installed in LED tails


PERFORMANCE MODS:

Godspeed V2 FMIC, (which I got for free)

This was the first thing I installed on the car when a buddy gave sent it to me from California as a gift. The install was pretty straight forward, but it took me 5 fours since I was learning at the same time. Could probably do it in 3 now or fewer.

K04 turbo with GIAC tune

Spulen Charge/discharge pipe

Audi R8 red coilpacks

Volant air intake

GFB DV+

Integrated engineering PCV/Africa plate, spulen SN10 hoses, No name aluminum catch can.

Audi TTS-TTRS Brake Master Cylinder

Spulen short shift/side to side/ Torque solutions shift bushings and shift mount bushings.

M-factory LSD
Thread: http://www.golfmk6.com/forums/showthread.php?t=111725

RSR style clutch

Clucthmasters Hydraulic TOB with braided clutch lines.

Koni coilovers

Hotchkis Front and rear 27mm sway bars

Spulen adjustable front end links

42DD Downpipe with HF CAT

Brembo/cayenne/Touareg 17Z calipers with GL350 stoptech slotted/crossdrilled rotors, aluminum hub adapter, red stuff pads.

R32 braided brake lines

TSW Donington Black wheels 18x8

lug conversion with race nuts

034 subframe collar kit

034 aspherical dog bone mount

Vibratech subframe bushing


FUTURE PERFORMANCE MODS:

Aluminum Passat spindles and control arms or TT control arms with passat spindles..... ( Pulled them off Passats at the junkyard). As soon as I can figure out if the spindles can be machined to fit 17Z/18Z calipers or if I can buy TT-RS calipers, which I can only find the left caliper.

Upgraded strut mounts, S3 bushings for the control arms.

Whatever I think up next. It never ends.

If anyone has any questions about any of the installs on the parts in my build, just ask as we did them ourselves. I am going to start logging anything I do or mod, any problems/issues, on this thread....

If you need a tech that can install any of these mods in middle TN, at a much more reasonable Price(He installed the LSD and clutch with my help), PM me and I can give you his contact info.
