So ive decided to keep the S3 for a while, it needs a new turbo as the one on there is too big and doesnt give decent power until 5000 revs +
The car has the following mods
Genesis 550cc injectors
T3 turbo fitment manifold with external wastegate
Scat H section forged rods
Full milltek exhaust and decat
depo electronic boost gauge (looks crap to be honest)
ive also checked the compression and it all seems good - 155 152 153 153
The new turbo id hope to get one with a T3 fitment so i can use the existing manifold/wastegate setup, id like the new turbo to be decent for road use and make decent power - its a second car but is currently in full road trim.
Id like to see around the 400hp mark, and from reading up the turbo that seems like it would do the job is the Garratt GTx2868
any other advice or comments on this, i appreciate ill need to have it properly mapped, but anything else ill need please advice, i know its going to cost a bit but what wouldn't chasing that power, at least some of the work has been done already i guess.
Ive emailed B5 a few times and asked him the same question, he said i could go down there but the existing turbo has a slight oil leak on the turbo in and return lines so id rather not drive it anywhere until the new turbo is fitted and then have it mapped etc..
