    Nath's MKV r32 - mildly Modified

    edited: November 2012
    * denotes the image is not mine

    Summary:

    Engine
    - GIAC ECU Tune
    - GIAC DSG Tune
    - BMC Carbon Dynamic Airbox
    - Millltek CBE - non-resonated
    - Haldex Stealth & remote switch
    - R36 Blue coil protectors

    Handling
    - Konigsport Coilovers
    - Adam Rotors - Track (front & rear)
    - Hawk Ceramic pads (front & rear)
    - Braided lines / Martini race fluid
    - Whiteline 24mm Rear Sway Bar (RSB)
    - Whiteline Anti-lift kit (WALK)
    - HPA engine mount

    Interior
    - S2T DSG Paddles (silver)
    - Tunerdome LED kit
    - Sprintbooster

    Exterior
    - OEM sunroof
    - Stubby antenna
    - Tinted windows (darkest legal)
    - MKVI R brake retainers
    - BBS F1 (reps) 18x8 +45 9kg
    - Bridgestone RE11



    GIAC re-flash of ECU*
    Increased redline to 7250rpm / better fuel efficiency / removed flat spot in mid range




    GIAC re-flash DSG*
    7250rpm redline (matches ECU tune) / Launch Control raised to 3750rpm / kick down disabled / auto gear up disabled - bounce off limiter / faster changes / louder DSG fart / D/S modes kept the same




    BMC CDA
    Great induction noise / includes cold air snorkel






    Milltek (non resonated) cat back exhaust
    Love the sound, aggressive DSG fart






    Haldex Gen II (stealth) with Remote Switch
    Able to dial out understeer for oversteer and able to get the power down when exiting the apex.






    FK Konigsport Coilovers - Adjustable height and rebound dampening*
    Made in Germany - Set 1" lower then stock






    Adam Rotors – Track addition + Hawk Ceramic pads + Braided lines + Martini Racing RF-700 fluid
    Love noisy brakes!






    Whiteline Rear Sway Bar
    Replaced OEM hollowed bar with a solid 24mm adjustable, stuck it on hard.




    Whiteline anti lift kit (WALK)*
    OEM were crap & perished so replaced with whiteline




    HPA Core Interlock Performance Motor Mount (90A)*

    Great little mod

    Here is a clip to show the difference

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svUjGkKUZGg (after)




    S2T Performance DSG paddles
    Excellent build/fitment / solid structure that replaces OEM paddles




    Tuner dome LED kits*
    Replaced all interior and rear registration lights with white LED's - no faults




    Sprintbooster*

    Leave it on green, enjoy what it does




    BBS F1 reps 9kg 18x8 +45
    Purchased due to weight saving over OEM - Painted in matt grey (planning on changing wheels when the right ones come up)






    Bridgestone (Potenza) RE11's 225/40/18
    Best tires I have owned, onto my second set now.






    Future plans
    * New OEM undrilled noise cone
    * New wheels
    * Unibrace XB
    * Unibrace UB
    * RNS 510

    Here are some pics a mate took whilst stock













    (a shadow box was used)


    Cheers for looking

    Nath

    Not quite, Race mode doesn't get to 50:50.

    Check this out:


    Notice the front wheels always have more power. Race is very close to a 50/50 but I think it would be more accurate to say that:
    Sport is 65/35
    Race is 55/45

    Great build Nath. It always starts mild and good choices there. May I ask if you get any in-cabin drone with your non resonated milltek cat back in any rpms? I am thinking of getting one for my mkiv r32 because the exhaust tone is so much quieter than the stock mkv r32.

    Thanks Jig; You do receive drone at times but it's a quick shift up/down & it's eliminated. The common speeds 60/80/100 it's fine, as it is on the fwy.. I do understand why some still choose a resonator tho as it is quite loud with daily driving

    There is night & day between all 3 modes on the Haldex, surprised the front wheels still hold a higher % but guess it would make sense!

    Will get some pics from the w/e up!
