    Opie are the nuts mate. So quick to deliver, great info and advice on products and decent prices/offers!!

    Very happy with them myself.

    NGK plugs are a great choice :D Run 7 rating one's on mine.

    yer getting there fellas, forgot that I have broken a few of the connectors to the car, wondering how difficult it is to change them with new ones? Will have the turbo on the mani this week and then take it to get a DP made next week and should be able to start it up next week :)

    I'll have a look when i get home friday mate, from memory though the knock sensor nearest the cam belt i think comes down through a gap in the manifold from the injector loom, and the other one (gearbox end) comes from the same wiring part of the loom that the power steering sensor comes from.

    I will double check on it when I'm home :D

    As for the plugs i believe you need a special tool available from the dealers to remove the connector pins from the connector blocks.

    Well all of the plugs are accounted for, it does make sense really. I sat bag had another look at it all and was thinking to myself what parts are missing, TB, mani, EGT sensor, MAP Sensor and low and behold everything made sense and their respective locations, I will be getting vagcom on it ASAP after firing it up to check that there is nothing untoward.

    Got the shipping details of my 2.0 coil pack kit today and my vband clamps and TB hardware, going to be a good day tomorrow I can feel it :D

    Found out I've only got 1 broken connector which is the connector that attaches to the right hand side of the gearbox (brown connector) going to see if i can make it stay on there if not it will need another one.

    Bled the clutch system today as well pedal is feeling mighty firm but is to be expected.

    Got the car built up a bit more today, SEM mani is on injectors in, fuel lines attached, it's pretty much going to be ready to make a down pipe and intake pipe tomorrow, going to try and take it to have one made next week and then the big day will be here.....

    Done a bit more work on the car this evening, whilst I was attaching the driveshafts I found this little problem.....

    [​IMG]

    Amazing how corroded something can be, I started to loosen the nuts on the bottom and the bolts which are an integral part of the ball joint span off in the socket! Went and got a new one from TPS and all is dandy again.

    Got everything pretty much attached to the car now...

    All I've really got to do now is make up a intake pipe, charge pipe and take it to have a DP made.

    Is it me or do these engine sit massively on the wonk???

    Don't know what it could be...

    Just had a look at the photos, and the amount of tools on the floor, it's a wonder I can find anything

    Haha, I did go out and have a quick 40mins tidying earlier, it's nice when you can actually find sockets you need because they're in the right place rather than on the floor.

    Yer I don't think it's realistically going to happen if I'm honest to myself.... Will be ready (realistically) for April which is what my original goal was anyway...
