In addition A4 B7 owners anyone has cracking stock taillights I have to replace mine looking at aftermarket options, its time to start changing a few things saw a A4 basically duplicating my vehicle same aftermarket wheels,lights,etc just a newer plate, if I wasn't driving my car I would of thought someone was joyriding.

These plugs should be cold enough on 20vT motors running a GT28RS up to 1.6bar gauge pressure and running fuel mixtures more than 15% richer than stoich.
I recently calibrated race Corrado running a built AUM 20vT from a Golf 4 GTI and this powertrain was fitted with a GT28RS. During mapping and development and we swapped to these plugs with a plug gap of 025 thou to cure any misfires at full load.
Following on from VAG 20vT track cars, I can share a few other examples. This time a few owned by me.
Golf 2 8V GTI - JENVEE.
JENVEE is a Golf 2 that was purchased to replace another MK2 that was shunted up the rear.
Overtime, tuning work to the vehicle's suspension occurred with a FK Konigsport coil over kit with 7kgmm/6kgmm front rear springs. I took it to the Lydden Hill circuit in Kent, for a bit of fun out on track and to practice my driving skills. I had the front ARB disconnected to aid putting the power down just before the apexes. It may only have a 113bhp 8v motor, but trackdays are not all about power. R32 Golf 4 and 911 get out of the way!
It was dry that day and the car was running hard as nails ditchfinders aka P6000. I kept it on track though.
Golf 2 16v GTI - JENVEE
Later on as time progressed the engine and gearbox where updated. As the author of How to ABF your Golf 2 on CGTI, it was natural that JENVEE was fitted with an ABF engine. As I already had this engine fitted to my old car, along with a Megasquirt unit built and calibrated by me it was just a case of transferring across.
PB 8v out
ABF Mk3 motor in
In addition to the engine update I added a short 4.25 FDR for my 020 gearbox and a Quaife ATB diff. Girling brake calipers from the MK3 Golf GTI and Corrado 280mm discs with Feredo DS3000 where in charge of the retardation department. I also ran the car on Uniroyal Rainsport 2 rubber on the road and wet track, Toyo R888 for damp to dry track work and Direzza D03gs for really dry conditions.
Once an appropriate shake down was concluded I took the car out to several race tracks and with the last at the Brands Hatch 'Indy' Circuit.
It was wet that day and I am running my Uniroyal road tires. Here is a video that demonstrates how I got on.
Golf 3 VR6 - Der Ankor.
My Ankor VR6 is another road/trackcar.
Overtime, this car had many subtle mods and has been to the main continent with family. We have driven it to Austria some 800miles from home one way many times at full 149mph on the Autobahn and then to the ring and it does not complain. I have recently tweaked it to @~ 200bhp with some head work and ECU tuning and it still does not complain when driven enthusiastically as shown in this video at Cadwell Park.
So there you go. 3 out of 5 of my other babies.
Over the winter plans are on the way to upgrade this car (for straight line work).
