    LE-S3's custom build

    Some of you may or may not have seen my thread up to "stage2+" modifications hidden in the Recode sponsors section which Parso originally started for me: http://www.vwgolf.net.au/showthread....imited-Edition

    I haven't really wanted to intrude with a 'build thread' with this being a Golf specific forum but sharing the same engine as the VW Golf R and being a busy forum of open knowledge, it was a place I continued to come back to as there isn't the same vast information on the Australian Audi forums. With plenty of information on what to do and where to go for everything up to stage 2+ modifications, it probably wouldn't have added any extra information.

    With this next stage however, some of you looking to stage 3 to stage 5 (or 6? Is there such thing?) may be able to benefit seeing as the Audi S3 8P shares the same engine as you Golf R owners, so I hope you don't mind - and here we go...!

    After some long and heavy research, emails, phones, PM messages, visiting different workshops and asking questions, I made a very clear decision to have Integrated Engineering do everything for me. This didn't come without month long emails with them and phone calls. As what seems to happen, one question you have then leads to 10 others and they then link on to 20 more. I must have annoyed the team in Salt Lake, Utah but they showed no signs of this in email. No short responses - explanations were always in full and prompt! A very professional team.

    The order is a complete custom built race engine.

    The block..
    - JE FSR Asymmetrical Skirt Pistons with Ceramic Thermal Barrier Crown, Anti Friction Tuff Skirt and Tool Steel Wrist Pins
    - 83mm / 0.5mm over bore
    - IE Tuscan Rods
    - Calico Coated Race Rod / Race Main bearing set
    - IE Ultimate Crankshaft Girdle Kit
    - Fluidampr Crank Pulley

    The head..
    - IE CNC Ported Cylinder Head
    - Ferrea +1mm oversized valves
    - IE Guides
    - IE Springs and Retainers
    - Schrick Cams
    - IE Adjustable Cam Gear

    Photos and videos of the progress will be fed through from the Media department of Integrated Engineering.
    Here are some of the main players in the mean time (In order to what they are listed as above).

    I also had a quote from them a few months back on a long block with shipping. Hope you negotiated them down on price.

    In a word..phenomenal!
    I don't know driving in another way which isn't risky. Each one has to improve himself. Each driver has its limit. My limit is a little bit further than other's.
