    Been a fruitful weekend.

    Fitted some bonnet struts to the T-Roc R(The Golf's have struts, the T-Roc cheaped out and only have the rod)

    And fitted a full R600 Intake including the TIP to the T-Roc R

    Was very disappointed to discover that the T-Roc R (and presumably the Golf 8 R which shares this engine) only has direct injection, no port injection anymore. Hello carbon build-up

    Had a fruitful couple of weeks off work, though the actual car attention days were limited due to the extreme heat Brisbane was experiencing these holidays. It meant car work days were limited to cooler days only of which there were about 5

    Of the 7 VWs in this photo, 4 of them got some attention

    The Up! got new Coilovers installed. The H&R sport springs seem to have collapsed (most of the coils were touching) and the ride became unbearable.

    A new project rebuild of a 1.4T 90TSI was commenced and finished. Replaced LF fender, LF strut and LF control arm.

    The Golf R got a HPA upgraded fuel pump installed

    The Polo GTI got a 3" downpipe, a rear swaybar and new DBA street performance brake pads (to go with the DBA 4000 discs) installed.

    EDIT: BTW, shout out to VW Austral's parts dept (Tim) who got me suspension parts (strut bearings & nuts etc) for the Up! at short notice overnight last week, when at the last minute I decided to replace rather than reuse what seemed to be fairly worn bits.

    T-Roc Style had some love this long weekend.

    Got the same bonnet struts as the R (thanks Ebay), and a Forge Blow-off valve fitted.

    Only 1 thing left to do, and that is figuring out how to fit a MK7.5 GTI exhaust to it.

    Also spent a good few hours coding out a Steering Angle sensor error on the 90TSI Golf using VCDS. After the hit on the LF it had a host of lovely yellow warning lights on the dash. All gone now after forcing a relearn of the Sensor.

    I know, it is getting out of hand

    Technically out of 10 (there are actually 10 VWs in the family now!) only 2 are "mine" (R & GTI), my son has 2 (Amarok & Up!), wife has T-Roc R, daughter 1 has T-Roc Style, daughter 2 has 110TSI, daughter 2's partner soon will have the 90TSI although currently he is in the 66TSI Polo (which is for sale). Still need to get daughter 1's partner and son's partner into a VW and my work would be done LOL.

    All of the current projects are now at an end, so next weekend the Amarok upgrade starts. AWD conversion for the RWD TSI plus a KO4 turbo upgrade is happening. It will probably take a few months as multiple components are getting touched in the process.

    The Up! is showing signs of clutch cylinder going (don't know if it's the master or slave yet) so it may sneak in for more work If I can this will be delayed till after the Amarok is done, as the Up! needs gearbox work and new clutch anyway when the turbo goes on.
