im fairly new to the site and have been visiting quietly and regularly - getting answers but its come to that time for me to ask a few questions.
i have the forge 007p and air filter currently installed on the car.
As a new owner of my A3, im looking to do a few mods to my a3 1.8t listed below:
k03s. I understand i cannot use the standard k03 TIP and need a Silicone one (stated below)
Downpipe and Decat. I have a 3" downpipe and decat for collection on Thursday and should be an easy bolt on
SMIC. I am thinking about upgrading to the s3 SMIC unit (or the complete 2 Intercooler setup if its not too much of a problem) as i am not too keen on how the piping on the FMIC for the A3 looks when installed behind an a3 bumper.
Polyflex Dog Bush (Diesel Version) for the smooth drive, feel connected and longer tyre life i hear everyone talking about
AGU Silicone TIP a must have for the k03s upgrade
8L Facelift Front and Rear Light i read that the fronts require a little bit of work, but there's a guide available on here, but he rear should be a straight swap? (Not really performance but they update the look of the car!)
Remap Last But not least!
for the questions:
is there any thing else that i might need to ad to the list before i do the remap that's necessary to run Stage 1?
the two feeds/pipes- are they the oil and water lines needed?
will the turbo be a straight swap, connect those two up, bolt it on etc. or is there anything else i need?
for the s3 intercooler, is it a good idea to go the full way and install 2 intercoolers or will 1 S3 intercooler be fine for the upgrade?
are the a3 and s3 intercoolers identical/interchangeable?
is the Turborevs SMIC any good? how about compared to the s3 IC?
Sorry for the Multiple questions but its what keeps us alive...
