It would have been better if he hadn't told you it was done till this time on Friday
I felt this pain when my car went in for the hybrid conversion...
I took the call at work to say it was done and all was well... At this point in the conversation i was putting my coat on and telling the boss "im off, i need to pick it up"
Noggy Blue 2001 S3
I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?
It's awful isn't it? If niki were open until 9 I'd head up there right now. Haha.
Cool new dv fitment has solved a few fuelling oddities:
I think Rob said final figures were 290bhp/260lbft, but they tested it to 328bhp without pushing the turbo hard at all!
more more more!!!
Good work mate...
Silver 2001 AMK S3. Silver alcantara interior... now with added powarrrrrrrr, torques. VAGCOM + KII-USB. >> My build thread...
I think Niki said it peaked 21psi on the 328bhp run, but the load map has been taillored to tail off at the top end to cap power generally, so rather than rewrite it for the power test he just upped the whole load a tad, so 21-22psi peak but tailling off on purpose at the top end. If it were left to hold it's peak boost to the redline I'm sure it'd be well over 340 and replicate the welly results!
Very happy with it indeed
Nice one prawny, glad its going well and making more power, agu's for the win it would seem

great news Nick! Coming along to the next Ace meet in it yea?
AGU for the win indeed Mr. Nutting! large port everything and higher CR have to be helping
Danny: will be at Ace on tuesday for sure. Will text you.
I bet Saturday can't come quick enough Nick,what time are you looking at ?
I'll have to check with Bigman who's taking me over, but I'd like to be there as early as possible, so half 9-10ish I'd think. they open at half 9. not sure I could manage to wait until later!
Hopefully ill get to see it then nick, im booked in 9.30 on saturday.
Stage 1, and after a bit of pestering and supplying of the goods, a new thermostat lol.
Cant wait for saturday, knowing im going to see your animal is just the cherry on top.
Would just like to take a moment to compliment all on this thread. It should be made into a book or a TV series. Best read I have had in ages. Its killed an offshore shift and I thank you for that.
Fantastic work Prawn. Superb car. Cant wait to watch the youtube clips once i get a pc with flash running on it.
Once again. awsome, superb, entertaining etc etc etc

I can't believe how far it's come in 14 months, from an MOT failure shed to 328bhp beast, it's been an amazing journey!
I am infact a 6ft2 fuller figured gent of English origins! Prawn just rhymes with my sirname :P
Ta very much, hope to get back out there this year, would be nice to get down to close on 8 minutes with the new found power! A chap I knew has done 08:06 in a focus RS with 300bhp, so i think it's an achievable goal
Sometime in the near future I would love to get out there for the first time. It will be very interesting seeing how much difference the said power is going to make. Im sure its going to make it more difficult to drive quickly.
Either way im eagerly anticipating seeing another video with the new power.
I always wonder if increasing the power on FWD makee lap times much quicker..
Did it feel asif it could take more without ridiculous understeer and lift off oversteer at 220bhp nick?
I suppose if the diff is similar to the RS then should be awesome. How much is the difference in power to weight fron yours now to an RS?

Mine is now 291bhp, and 1100kg, so 264bhp/ton, and also has a quaife ATB diff, so higher power/weight, with similar BHP figures for top end pull once aero comes into play.
It’s a strange one with regards to the power, as a road car, on the typical ARB’s & coilovers setup most people run, it felt a fair handful with 220-230bhp, and you wouldn’t have wanted much more. The engine far outweighed the chassis.
Now with all the suspension work done, the LSD, and the sticky tyres, it felt slow and desperate for more power, the chassis far outweighed the engine, even though the engine hadn’t changed from the previous incarnation!
So in answer, yes, I reckon it could take LOADS more power without upsetting it too much, the ko3S was also very punchy with a big torque spike, which didn’t help traction, whereas the new setup looks like it’s going to be incredibly smooth and just keep on pulling and pulling. We’ve also got the option to turn it down to actuator pressure using the EBC if needs be, around 260-270bhp, so I think it’s something that’ll be easily tamed.
On the ring there are lots of long fast open sections, so I think adding power will make a big difference, especially up ‘horse power hill’ where previously we were flat out at 105-110mph, and the porsches were pulling 140+ due to their power
Well that answers my question perfectly, briing on the 8 minute times then.
yup, people talk about clear laps with no traffic and no idiots, something we can only dream of at the moment! All my previous timed laps have had traffic hold ups, and you always think 'it'd be 08:30 if it wern't for him' kind of thoughts, hence why on the last trip I didn't bother filming or timing anything. just enjoyed it for what it is
what tyres are you running or would you recommend on a remapped k03s daily driver. was thinking falken 452's
I'd recommend Eagle F1 Asy2's or Contisport 5P (or 3 if they're not available).
If you want a cheaper option, then look at the Hankook S1 Evo. Falken 452s are getting a bit old these days.
Plenty of other threads on Tyre choices though, so please dont clutter this one up with it!
