    this summer i will add the badger5 tip and a custom remap (the car is stock for now), do you think i need rods with that? I know they are weak but i prefer not to change them if i can pass without it
    depends how power hungry you are. if you go all out and have the boost at silly psi then the risk is greater.

    yours and the tuners choice ultimately.
    depends what you are trying to achieve.

    Just thought I would chip in and say a massive thanks to Ben at servicing, Parsons Performance LTD Home the silver S3 is mine and I am over the moon with it, its now a really tight, smooth and QUICK car.

    Driven the 26 miles home and had a blast, couldnt push too hard as Ben said, rings are bedding in and its not running full boost.

    Power at the top end is hugely different, just pulls and pulls. Will put some more miles on it tomorrow as I am off to get it aligned. Then will get the poop oil out and the good stuff in and tweak the map.

    Did have a rolling road day booked for beginning of Feb but they have aprantly now banned 4wd cars even if I disconnect the Haldex

    Excited to get it on the rollers and see what it makes.

    if anyone wants a manifold or downpipe package give me a shout. i can get the manifolds for $300 , dp with decat for $325 and dp with sports cat $375 all prices include shipping. all shipments will be marked as gift to save on import tax aswell. Hullcupra225 bought his through me.
    Just a Big thanks to Sam for sorting out a decent discount, I received my manifold, dp and decat yesterday, only sent payment late last Friday so I am impressed by the delivery times and I can't fault the build quality, it all looks good. I just got to wait and save for the new clutch then everything can get fitted at once.

    I just made a best offer of £310 for a xs power Downpipe and sportscat. And was accepted. Just about to make the payment. Car is off to liquid metal Monday for a one off centre section too. So exhaust system should be all sweet!

    On the s3 yeah... Iv had tubular manifolds on other cars, but there hasn't really been a decent one for the k04 worth fitting until now. I'm just preparing my car for when nick gets fed up of changing gearboxes and front tyres on his track car, then sell me the hybrid for a pound

    Thank you.

    Sam's just been in touch and I have to say, what a nice guy! £192 for the mani is also irresistable.

    However, I guess he's busy catching up with everyone else as i'm trying to call to place an order again now!

    Anybody dynoed a manifold and standard ko4 stup yet? Looking forward to seeing the results.....
    I did, but keep in mind that i didnt dyno the car before the install, so cant really tell how much was the gain.
    Also my car isnt in 100% shape, and would benefit from a tune up, as me and the mechanic beleive there is an easy 10 bhp lost between the old spark plugs, old fuel filter, and old maf (never changed since i bought the car)

    Audi S3 AMK
    Relentless-Manifold, Relentless-3" downpipe decat, Forge 007 DV, autobahn88 TIP, K&N Panel filter, EBC yellowstuff brake pads, R32 ARB, Custom column dual gauge pod...waiting for a remap!

    For help/info/pricing on xs manifold and downpipe pm me (not affiliated, nor a reseller trader, just an enthusiast!)
