    sport or not?

    can somebody please tell me the difference between an audi a3 1.8 t quattro and an audi a3 1.8 t quattro sport? are they the same thing or does the sport have extras?

    I also have another question, what are the differences between the 1.8t quattro engine and S3 apart from the ECU? does it have a bigger turbo?

    KO4 in the S3 and KO3 in the A3, S3 has twin IC's and larger injectors.

    Theres only a quattro sport..

    1.8t quattro is 180bhp and the 1.8T Sport is 150bhp, S3 is 210/225 bhp. Difference comes from what James said above, different map, turbo, two intercoolers etc etc.

    Doesn't the S3 lump use a different compression ratio too?

    Read somewhere pistons are different, larger MAF, uprated fuel pump too

    Re: sport or not?

    could the 2 intercoolers be fitted to a 1.8 t quattro or is there a company that does an uprated 1?

    Yes and Yes and Yes..

    Have a word with Rich ( RichA3Turbo), although he'll prolly be along in a sec to tell you. On his car though I think he had to a certain amount of the fabrication of pipes etc himself.
