Bit of progress this weekend.
Connected up the brake lines, torqued up the front driveshaft bolts, repaired and fitted the rear left driveshaft, broke off the corroded shielding on the ABS sensors, re-wrapped and re-fitted them, replaced a broken wire to the rear diff, not sure what it does (yet), looked at a few other things and pondered them :D

I thought I'd better clean this out..

Yay, got this nut back on. I damaged it trying to get it out of the hub.

And it's in

Brake lines are all complete. No fluid in there yet.

Ticked a few things off the list but I keep adding more.

The damaged fuel line and the replacement I bought from Audi tradition. Not sure that's the right one

I'm itching to clean it. Need to wait until Final Touch Wellington to do it properly.

OK - does anyone have any recommendations for somewhere to do a pre-purchase inspection for a modified vw in Auckland? If I take it to Tristram etc I'm worried they'll just grumble about it being modified.

I looked at one this morning which was very nice; but it's got a couple of codes - potentially just caused by the aftermarket BOV installed, and maybe an aftermarket exhaust / catless DP.
Suspect it's might have been re-flashed as well; pulled a bit harder.

Sorry for Non-VAG content, but posted here because I'm sure many of you VAG turbo users will have experience.

My understanding is that the Bluefin is set specifically for  your car, but my suspicion is that it is a generic remap, and the "specific to your car" is coding to ensure it can't be used on another vehicle.

I don't have a problem with that, as long as the generic map works well, which I'm guessing it would on a factory standard car but maybe not so on a modified car, especially with intake and exhaust mods.

I'd be interested in people's informed opinions on this ecu upgrade, which can be fitted for $1000 incl GST by the Renault Dealer. Actually installing it looks like a breeze.

Nik, I see you posted earlier a negative assessment of the superchips in your RS2, but it reads as if that's a problematic installation, and an old one, in the S2/RS2

Claimed gains are 315hp and 460nm compared to 265/350 stock.

Greg, Phil on the forum had a white RS265 with a Bluefin tune on loan on Friday from Renault Auckland. How could give you feedback on how that was.

In regards to the RS2 Superchip, the tune it to run mechanical boast.My understanding is when the RS2 came out they could get there head around the ECU so chipped it like an old K-Jet ur quattro. That's 20 years ago so it wouldn't hold any weight with what they do now.

'twas a joke ?

question - do you feel something is lacking with the standard 265 tune ?

Only the difference in power and torque between standard and more  ;)

Why do you say that? The factory recommendation for the vehicle is 95/98 - I'd be surprised if they would programme for 91.
because most generic maps are not country specific, so they need to account for low octane fuels. Hence getting a tailored remap will always produce better gains.

so VW Group fessed up and are dealing with the consequences, while others are sheltering behind the ramparts
