    Oh and I wanted to say a huge thank you to Chris (rhubarb) for collecting the wheels from the seller for me.

    Is that a set of bremos in the corner?

    They are a bit bright mate.
    Should be good watching them go round the track.

    It was either red or green wheels and these just happened to pop up cheap.

    Sorry bud. As per my poll at the top of my thread I've been toying with the idea of red or green track wheels. I was aiming for green but these just happened to pop up at the right time.

    Well, Judgement Day (or Judgement Week in this case) is now apon us! I drop my car off tomorrow at RTech for a week for a custom map to make the most of all my mods. I'm hoping to brake the 300bhp barrier but there are doubts as to whether the Compression Ratio of the BAM pistons will be able to produce the goods. We know that a stock K04 is now capable of flowing enough air for 300bhp as it's been done a few times now. I cant wait to see how the mapping goes over the next week.

    We'll see! I'm hoping for westys sake it does make 300bhp.

    Niki mapped a small port AUM last week on a ko4 which made 300bhp, 9.5:1 CR.

    Westys is the opposite, 9:1 CR but large port head, so I guess we'll soon see what's more important :P CR or large port.

    THankfully for me, the AGU has both

    im aiming to have both too. but more so i dont have to rely on one thing to make good power, like boost for e.g. just enables you to make the power you want with a little less boost to keep temps safe. Its no doubt the best setup to go for for that reason, but i dont think .5 cr will be a MASSIVE factor in performance.

    It was dropped off this morning and left in the capable hands of Nick and the other RTech lads.

    Good luck westy. I made 288bhp and 293ftlb at bills the other day. No map changes to my cc stage 2. Relentless mani doing its job very well. I'm sure I could have made 300 had we wanted to. I have now fitted the k04 relentless hybrid and c3 manifold. Just waiting to get it mapped. Good times ahead

    1st update from Niki at RTech is that the car has just been dyno'd as it is and is currently running 262bhp and 290lbft but there is a missfire at around 4K that they are investigating. I'm thinking it's the 2nd hand TFSI coils I'm running but we'll see what he finds.

    Couple of quotes from Niki on FB:

    "296bhp 320lbft with 21psi boost"

    "fooooking animal on the road... never drove an S3 like it before. night and day.
    spinning wheels between 3rd and 4th in the damp during logging. Thats with stock injectors"

    That'll be the budget tyres then lol. I must change them!

    Not bad figures so far considering they've not even started the custom map yet!

    is it sad that I'm sat here reading that and it's making me grin like a big kid? and it's not even my car!

    I remember how excited I felt every day getting updates from Niki on facebook about the progress.

    I want some of that torque in my life!

    That'll be the budget tyres then lol. I must change them!

    Not bad figures so far considering they've not even started the custom map yet!
