Matt tuned it on the dyno/road when he was in Adelaide last. He's sent a revision since and I'm expecting another one shortly. Even without E85 it's worthwhile.

Did you sort the clutch pedal? I just read this:

I replaced the rubber clutch line with a braided one, but it didn't totally fix the problem. Clutch pedal only goes soft in extreme hot weather and very rarely. Its still perfectly drivable anyway, so I haven't got to fixing it. I'll probably just replace the master and slave cylinders when I get a chance - I have spares in the shed.

 

Cheers

The problem will be the master.

I replaced the master/slave in mine + already had a braided line and it went away.

& same with mine.  Gone completely but no braided line.

 

It was getting so bad I was contemplating cutting up an old turbo heat shield to wrap around the master.

Rear diff bushes replaced with Whiteline ones - no small task!

 

Made much easier with a recipro saw to get the old ones out and a couple of handy steel plates with a bolt to press the new ones in. Driveline feels much tighter now.

 

On another note, after replacing the MAF sensor for the second time in as many years, I've gone back to a standard panel filter. Same performance as the HKS filter, but marginally quieter and hopefully will reduce the wear and tear on the MAF.

 

Also, over Christmas I replaced the non-genuine valve cover gaskets with genuine articles. Its worth using genuine or high quality aftermarket parts for maintenance where possible - cheap knock-offs will never do the job properly.

Probably slightly overdue for an update on this car, as some things have changed in recent days, to list a few:

 

- Brembos all round - WR blue with white lettering

- DBA T2 rear rotors and T3 fronts

- Project mu pads

- HEL braided lines

- Alloy LCA's

- Whiteline front endlinks

- STI RA 2.2 turn steering rack

- Replaced shifter joint with new OEM

- Bridgestone Potenza RE003 tyres in 225/50/R17

- Straight pipe from diff back (for track work - when I eventually get to the track...) takes 2 secs to swap the current Syms muffler with the straight pipe and vice versa

- Rebuilt front CVs and new wheel bearings

- New battery

 

That's all I can think of off the top of my head...

 

Still loving E85 - just need to refine launch control with Eculabs, then happy days!

What are your thoughts on the steering rack? Worthwhile? It's not plug and play, is it

Thanks guys, I'm really happy with where it's at now. Only things on my mind at the moment are:
- seats
- divorced intake (separate intake for each turbo) with a speed density tune
- getting the gear based boost control refined so that it is in secondary/parallel in first gear when using launch control (although I feel for my clutch)

Still stoked with what I can do with Eculabs. Can't recommend these guys enough.

Steering rack was a great mod - especially if I'm going to do some track work in the future. Never have to take my hands off the wheel for anything. It's obviously a lot heavier than the GTB rack, but at least now you can feel instant response when you turn the wheel. Got to be careful when sneezing - might inadvertently change lanes! Fitting it was not too bad. It bolts in fine, but the hard lines need some careful reshaping to get it to fit. Given it does not adjust with your speed like the GTB rack, the wiring for that feature is redundant and the steering light is on. I haven't really thought about a work around for this yet.

This is probably the nicest tt setup I've seen. Looks awesome too.

+1 for quick racks. One of the best mods coming from a gtb rack.

Just remove the globe from cluster?

Yeah I'll remove the globe - I hate doing stuff like that but it's not going to have variable steering anymore anyway I look at it, so it's just too bad.

Retune from Matt tonight which sorted launch control. Clutch is definitely the week point, but that's how it should be for the sake of the driveline.

I dare say there's probably not many other TTs out their still running a sequential setup that can launch into secondary with 11psi off the mark. Being the Eculabs TT guinnea pig has it's perks.

Wow, so many great updates.

 

I dare say that those hard launches & the power you are putting down,

A 6 speed might not be that far away !

Your comments about the Eculabs gear puts a smile on my face.

Thanks. I've always played with the idea of throwing in a 6 speed, but the 5 is still holding up fine. I think I've found a sweet spot for now where it's fun to drive, but I'm not breaking things. Famous last words.

If I wanted to take it to the next level then I'd definitely be looking at a 6 speed.

As many of you may know, I was sitting at the traffic lights about 12 months ago and the motor popped. I haven't opened it up or anything yet to assess the damage.

 

I've put a for sale thread up hoping someone will have some time to fix this up! PM me if you know anyone that might be interested. Would much rather sell whole than part.
