Thread: Emmas Octavia VRS

  1. #1

    Emmas Octavia VRS

    Got an Octavia VRS on Sunday for Emma as the A4 was getting a bit tatty and tired.
    2002 1.8T in Red Really tidy and completely standard when I got it on Sunday

    Since then I've done the following....
    New front anti roll bar
    New front lower arms
    Cam cover gasket (removed build up of carbon from inside)
    Removed the sump and fitted a new pick up for the oil pump, also de carbon'd (prevention better than cure)
    New fuel filter
    Flushed engine oil and changed it twice to ensure it's clean, new oil filter
    New thermostat (prevention again)
    Air mass meter
    Painted the chrome front grille surround black
    Coolant temp sensor (prevention again!)
    Panel filter
    Milltek turbo back system (decat, none resonated - a little louder than I would of chosen but not too bad)
    Forge recirc dump valve (not turned up yet but should be on tomorrow)
    Remapped to suit mods, running apx 230bhp now
    Cleaned and polished

    Planned mods for the future....

    Want to drop on a used rear anti roll bar because it under steers too much (these have a uprated front one as standard but then just a standard Golf beam axle at the rear)

    Nothing else planned, from the exterior it looks pretty standard. I'll try and get some photos up soon.

    Had this conversation with her about an hour ago, she would never be on here though so I ended up doing a thread for her.
