Lmao. Had I not already paid for, fixed, and installed this thing, I would have wanted it for sure.

Been daily driving this 2012 TDI A3 for a year now. Charisma gets driven almost every weekend. Ignition switch is going out, fuel pump doesn't always prime/stay on. Other than that, I keep putting gas in it and changing the oil and it keeps running. I have done zero preventative maintenance.

Finally made a skid plate. 1/4" aluminum plate on a .095wall 1x1 steel frame.





Oh and some new mud flaps from a $9 semi truck flap i picked up at a local place.

Got some bits

Installed some bits



AEM 340lph pump. I purchased an Aeroquip -6an weld bung and hacked the output line off the sender. Cleaned up the metal the best I could and started welding. I found welding at the back of the joint extremely difficult, had to bend my tungsten and used the biggest gas lense cup I have, which was the fupa 12. I could not get a clean weld.... Im blaming shielding gas turbulence due to the fuel output pipe being in the way. Feeling defeated I ended up just pulling another unit from the junkyard. I used hose barbs and clamps to jump down from the sender output hose (~1/2") o the -6 an (3/8") aeroquip hose. I chose to power the pump with a generic 40A automotive relay triggered by the factory pump wiring and pulling power off the 4ga power cable that is ran to the subwoofer amplifier under the floor. I want to look into modifying the first sender with a bulkhead fitting and also making my own wire feed thru instead of reusing the factory feed thru which likely doesn't support the current draw of this pump.

Jurd, use a longer hose for your intank pump and get the sock a wee bit higher up.

Doing the same with my setup, had my friend weld an 6 AN fitting to the output pipe and he said it was a PITA. I'm also wondering about the factory wire feed and will probably replace with a chemical resistant 3 wire bulkhead fitting I picked up from McMaster Carr.

Putting together an evo 16g with a 10.5cm turbine housing opened up for a td06sl2 11 blade wheel.


Tossed together an up pipe and started on the beginning of a downpipe.



Got a cheap evo 8 intercooler
