    Here's my two pennies worth.....

    Rs4 worst build quality...... No way! Better than s3 by miles in my experience ...... 5k into an s3 by most people's margins that isn't a lot I've read tufftys build thread and if he wAsnt able to do lot of work himself I estimate he would be at double that! I personally spent 6k on just mods on a civic 94 vti lol!

    People bragging on forums..... Leave em to it, it's there lies and lives i personally can't afford to put fuel in mine this week because of wet weather affecting building trade!

    well this thread has wandered off abit.

    imo, welly is the only person i've known of that has a big turbo built daily driver.
    he uses it for what it is for, everyday, he abuses it, in a respectfully kinky way, and probably will continue to get more and more power from it, and use it everyday still. and for that, i solute you he wins.

    doesnt matter who we are or what we have or how much we have.
    we all have the same car, the same passion, and to an extent, the same interests.

    Bragging? Hardly. I'm merely asking questions regarding cars which we all have interest in.
    And let's be honest, £5k is absolutely nothing compared to what some people have spent on their pride and joy on here. And I'd rather modify something which is sub £10k since you're not messing about with expensive exotica which could cost serious pennies to fix!

    I've had forum members over at my house before, so they can confirm that I'm not some dilousional keyboard hero!

    Thanks for the entertainment chaps and thank you for those who have actually replied with topical material (including the cans)!

    Two days before I have 'the' chat with Brian from Jabba... Need to sell some more of these lodges if I want 400bhp! The GTX3071r looks like the snail I'll be fitting. Now to scrimp and buy non-rifle drilled rods or pay the extra for rifle drilled?! ...................

    466 here,

    The reason I swapped from and s3 to an rs is the residual values, I'd already thrown a lot at the s3 only for the turboS to fail, so, I could throw another 6k at it but only have an s3 to sell for maybe 6-7k if the right buyer came along, or, I could sell the s3 and use the 6k to buy something that would hold its value better.

    Plus the rs has
    the amazing engine and sound track
    its a rare car only c. 400 bought to this country
    the interior has a high tech option for grippy seats not slidy roundy everywhere full leather
    the gearbox, the rs is geared to go fast
    it's quicker/as quick as Maserati gran sports and newer jag xkr respectively, proper exotica, just with the dog in the back and only from a map and an exhaust, with out 3 " dps too.
    Have I mentioned the noise?
    Theyre not exactly weighty either my sticker says 1680 kg
    I'm hoping to be looking at 480 with 3 inch dp's and a map (with flat shift om nom nom)

    However
    tyres are expensive
    there's two of most things that need changing
    fuel is something I never seem to have enough of
    the car is 10 years old and tired in places so you just have to except that things will need doing and that's going to cost

    Swings and roundabouts

    My current daily drive is a 2002 S3 8l, tuned by MTM to give a claimed 325bhp, also have Mov'it 4pots on the front.
    I've read up that the con-rods should be replaced at roughly 345bhp, after that its almost plain sailing to 500bhp with the exception of a one piece valve upgrade (not sure which BHP the standard ones are rated to).

    Not sure how helpful this is as you may be talking about an 8P?

    I'd get yours on a dyno mate as I've never seen an MTM make its claimed power. Also con rods have been known to bend on stage 1 maps. Search on here and you'll find loads of info about it.

    Oh and you'd need a fair bit of work to get to 500bhp...

    Me and goubo have both destroyed engines on the normal mtm kits and maps so its not quite like youd like to think

    The mtm turbo is not really capable of anything than 350 (according to the compressor map) unless your running nos or some special fuel, I had pretty much every supporting mod you could think of and had a reliable 335 out of the kit (although 355 was acheived when pushed with meth) and this was on a well respected dyno

    Sorry to piss on the fire but I believe youve been missinformed
