    Bearing in mind its on 153000 miles. But its nice and strong and not using any mods. Im looking to spend around £300 ON IT THIS MONTH.

    Air filter and something like a 007P or silicone boost pipes would be a good start

    i dont know how much a map is now days (stage one)
    bang for buck its a map.
    But after all mods have been bought you will be looking for a custom map.
    So you could just get all the mods and then a custom map.

    Sorry to hijack the thread but what gains can I expect in fitting a badger tip? What is its purpose? Also what is the N249 delete?

    Best mod I've found so far is uprated brakes! Gd series discs and red stuff pads, feels miles better than before! :y:

    The badger5 tip's allow the turbo to suck in more air, it's been shown to add up to 20bhp on a stage 1 mapped S3, it's 80mm down the whole tube, top buy before a remap.. It made mine feel much better, car revs raiser. The n249 delete gets rid of the cars ability to dump boost easily. Also makes less mess for boost leaks, makes the car respond earlier - a to do list for it is in the FAQs.
    Silver 2002 Audi S3 225 (BAM) since March 2011.

    Mods: Badger5 2.2 TIP, Jetex filter, PCV delete, 710 DV, Standard N249 in use, R-Tech Stage 1 TiV Remap, Audi TT Pedals, Red Dogbone, Polybushed tie arms. All silicone boost pipes, Michelin PS3s, Red V6 coil packs, MK4 flat blade conversion, retrofited cruise control.
    Currently: 254bhp - 276lb/ft (174bhp/ton) as of 11/02/2013 On V-Power
