me too man! Properly silly excited, Poor old Beachbuggy will be sat on a beach in greece twiddling his thumbs waiting for my news
Going to be fun
I'm lookingfor 400 brake just as a good allround number. Nothing to do with bragging rights
Not going to happen. I stick by my original statement, 370 or above would be an epic result.
Looking back 8 years to when we first bought the A3, we thought 150bhp was a lot, and 200 with a remap just seemed incredible.
To think we're touching on the realms of double that these days is just crazy, it's amazing how perception of speed / power changes with time!
I was so proud of this when I was 19:
And still very proud of it now :D
Picked up some 630cc injectors this evening from AndyP, hoping we don't need them, as they're not mine, I'm only borrowing them, but it'll be good to have them on hand just incase.
Do you think whoever you bought it off would even recognise it now? :D
Booooooosting just a little bit
Greedy old Git I object to the word Git.
i taught him how to take the "David Bailey" shots on his phone lol!
epic car. Yet to go out in it yet, but I can't wait for the full on power of the TFSI turbo
Many ideas and inspiration for me comes from this car, even the big gay wing will be going onto mine soon!
Car does look a tad meaner than when you bought it lol

I've got a jigsaw and many blades you can use. And a router to chamfer the edges.
In fact, if you make a cardboard template I'll get Richard to make it for you.
I quite often say I'm going to do things.
Then never do them.

Today I fitted the Sytec Motorsport intank fuel pump from Bill.
What a fantastic bit of kit it is too!
it's an intank pump that's 100% OE fitting, using the stock electrical connections, swirlpot, lines, everything. It'll apparently flow enough to run a set of 630cc injectors at 5 bar at 100% duty, so somewhere in the region of 450bhp+, far more than I'll ever need.
it's also very reasonably priced from Badger5 too
So, if you have a FWD car you're in luck. If you've got an S3 or a TQ, then this isn't for you. haha
Pump cover off:
and the pump and pot unit out:
I stripped it down and compard pumps, the bottom of the sytec pump replicates the OE pump perfectly, so it really is an OE fit with absolutely none of the fuel starvation issues that so many after market pumps suffer from.
I popped the new pump into the pot:
and connected it up using the factor connectors:
And back into the fuel tank and we're done. 35 minutes start to finish, one of the easiest mods I've ever done!
On turning the key I can hear it prime, it's no louder than the one it replaces at all, and totally silent with the engine running.
Happy days, another thing sorted
Very nice pal. Their no s3 equivalent?

Dude that's very well done! What does a setup like this set one back and what's the pros and cons
OK, so it's R-tech tomorrow!
Everything is checked, all fluids are topped up, I've got 10L of Pre-mixed meth to take along as spare, and 52L of shells finest V-power.
There's a 4 bar FPR waiting for me at R-tech, and a set of 630's in the glovebox just incase, so hopefully we've got fueling covered.
The big question is, what's it going to make?
Good luck mate! I'm sure we will see loads of updates.
