    I just went into GSF with my chassis number and asked for a clutch switch it's a blue switch

    looks a like this



    dont push it in or play with it before you install it, lol, thats the only thing i did that could make it not work properly.

    Jamie mines on 122k too. I gave it an oil/filter change before it was mapped. I was really surprised mine was still pushing out 185bhp before the map considering the milage and wear and tear. Get it mapped mate, it will be like a new car :L

    Thanks again dane I shall get one of those when I have the cash spare, I have been ill off work and so has the other half so moneys a bit tight for a couple of weeks but I will purchase one of those as soon as I can. And no I won't fiddle with it lol, cheers for the heads up :L

    Would be nice to track that down and actually fix it wouldn't it. Bit of a head scratcher that one....

    Mine's only done 78k, so that gives me hope that not many of my horses have escaped!

    Not too fussed about whether the cars clean or not, it's just nice to see another one on here! Would either of you be interested in the downpipe group buy that we'll be having in a couple of months?

    I know yeah I think it's because they are not unlocked to there full power without the map, that preserves the the standard BHP imo, a 122k motor with 210bhp from standard would be down on power I think.

    Cost £200 at R-Tech to have a stage 1 map and a very good service too, if there is something wrong with your car he won't map it which is a good thing.

    Im kinda hoping it was because I played with it, pushed it in and out etc. before installing it.

    But the first one I tryed made no difference, so I brought another one - which made no difference. So I took one apart put it back together and it worked way better but didnt cure it.

    Cool! They are really hard to come by, so if we could get a few of us, it'd hopefully bring the price down. Plus, I'd like to get that done before I go hybrid turbo, which is the long term plan

    Sorry dude no idea on part number, theres lots of threads on it there might be one in there.

    It was definately £10-11 it goes in front of the clutch pedal inside the car

    I know yeah I have looked for downpipes for mine just to get an idea on cost but can't find them on the bay, maybe looking in the wrong places but modding these motors is all new to me so. I will be going hyrbrid too when the cash allows so the downpipe will still fit as the turbo housing stays the same but that will be a while away yet before I get it done but it will be done!!!

    What is the standard inch of the tqs exhaust? I read that a 2.5 inch is more than enough for flow on our cars, if this is the case then a s3 exhaust will fit? if it does fit then I will buy one from a breaker, can't see the point of spending hundreds on a stainless steel one as it's not seen under the car.

    Bad picture Paul, my photography skills are not the best.

    After a map there is a massive difference, I'd say it's by far the best mod you can do in terms of: change to car vs $$$ spent

    newt regarding the s3 exhaust you would have to change one of the hangers as the s3 exhaust will need one of the hangers to face the opposite way im sure it the one for the backbox on the drivers side.

    Stainless is the way to go! Come with a warranty/guarantee, and can be customised depending on how loud you want them.

    Standard piping on the tqs is 2.25 inches. So even a 2.5" downpipe is a massive improvement. Newt - loving the black paint, looks identical to mine mate

    Hey guys been away so late replying as usual.

    Jamie it make a mahoosive difference, it's like it has twice the power now, no joke!!! Get it done mate you won't regret it :D

    Cheers for the info paul, I'm tighter than a submarines porthole hence wanting to use the S3 exhaust lol... can pick up full standard s3 exhuasts for around £30 secondhand off the bay, but thinking about long term it won't last so I will end up getting a custom one when I can afford it.

    Cheers Zeus... How hard are they to keep clean though lol, peeps in the street must think I am mad how much I wash it, but if they are not kept clean they look well crap so gotta be done.

    Cheers lads.

    Oh I brought a new maf on monday as mine was fooked... Car runs really smooth now with no lag or dumping boost, it's like a new car again. I though after the map it was awesome but man it's even better now :D Just got my Bosh super 4's to put in then it's had a full service. Happy days!!!

    Finally fitted this today



    it's been sat in the garage for almost 3 years lol, dunno why i didn't do it earlier as i'm chuffed with the results

    you can see how restrictive the standard one is





    whilst i was at it i also ditched this little lot




    also smoothed out and drilled the the airbox to aid the K&N panel filter


    Happy days , the car pulls a lot harder and is much more willing to rev

    It's true that the design is the same as the S3 with twin cats in the same place but you can't fit an S3 cat onto a TQS downpipe as the triangular flanges are in a different orientation ... i know this as i have the downpipe and cats off a BAM engined S3 sat in the garage , remains from fitting the S3 system to my car..... i've kept them though should i ever decide to do a K04 conversion
