    Goodbye Standard S3!!! Time for Mods!

    Hi guys,

    I've owned my 2001 blue S3 (210 AMK) for a 14 months now, and finally decided to get on the modding boat!
    Today I've arranged amd re-map and miltek cat back nonresonated exhaust (£737)
    Plus I've got a supersprint decat going on too, picked up for £132
    Forge 007 for £80 and a Badger 5 TIP with jettex filter and heat shield!

    All this happening Saturday! Wish me luck!!!

    Cheers guys,

    Forgot to say that I went on Power engineering rolling road in Uxbridge about a month ago and dyno'd 208.6 BHP and 215 lbft Torque!
    So atleast I know that i'm starting with good power!
    Yeh its costing a few bob, i've raided my piggy bank so hard, even down to using the coinstar machine at ASDA changing up bucket loads of 2p's to fund the fuel to ESSEX and back! :-)

    Everyone should remap, so much more fun after a remap! I had a Custom Code remap by Storm & it was a really smooth delivery

    You will enjoy!

    Non res isnt that loud, just a throaty tone. you'll love it

    Id advise getting a fmic aswell. Was stuck in traffic today for ages, went to put my foot down when the road was clear............Lets just say the car felt like standard again

    Sounds good dude,

    She'll feel like a different car when you get all that done.

    be prep'd to buy a coilpack or two if you haven't changed them recently.

    Get none res, and when you pick it up from fitting, don't panic, because it sounds stupidly loud and growley when its brand new, but once it beds in it settles down nicely.

    Well... I phones up Amd and they said it was too late to order in the non res so i've got the res unless I change appointment!
    The thing is I'm not to worried about that because I'm guessing I could always remove the mid section to make it like the non res
    Version if I really want some more tones?!
    My Bigger problem is that today the badger tip and decat plus forge 007 went on...
    The good news is that it all sounds great and slot more lively! Nice sound effects from the 007.
    It's all round the right way and I'm
    Pretty pleased but still waiting for the heatshield which is a shame.
    The bad news is I've got blue smoke, there is a breather pipe which feels knackered and is pretty bent over due to the positioning of
    The badger so I'm going to renew it tomorrow on the way to Essex, bill said this could be why she's smoking? Mostly happening before
    boost comes in, ie 25mph 3rd gear put foot down - bluey smoke builds then clears on boost?
    Slighty worried its something else as I've decat so that would make back pressure problems for turbo seals so I'm told?
    Apart from that it feels great... Just hoping I can sort breather and magically it works properly.
    No blue smoke at all before today and upon feeling the turbo inlet it felt nice and sturdy.
    What do you reckon guys?

    OK..... I'm home and bloody hell what a difference! I thought a new map would liven it up a bit but third gear is now pinning me in the seat!
    VERY HAPPY! They loaded a Stage 2 map and figures are as follows...

    BEFORE: TIP with JETTEX, FORGE 007, DE CAT, MILLTEK

    226.7 BHP
    214 lb/ft TORQUE

    AFTER: ALL of above plus stage 2 map

    262.3 BHP
    286.3 lb/ft TORQUE

    Apparantely it's still "unadapted" and is likely to hit nearer 270 after 4 cold starts....
    With heatshield and a cold air duct widened then maybe???
    Either way I'm pretty happy indeed! Awesome.... What the hell must 500 feel like is the question on my mind! :-D
