    Map sensor pipe inlarge S3

    Niki at r tech said it might be an idea to increase the size of the map sensor hard pipe. I'm just wondering if its worth it for stage 2... I read in another read that it wouldn't make a huge amount of difference unless it was over 300bhp, and I've worked out it'll probably cost around £90 to increase the size to 63mm from the intercooler hose to the maf as I've still got the standard hard pipe to maf hose, which is £90 is rather not spend right now. Has anyone else done this at stage 2?

    Oh and where is the best place to get standard bolt on coil packs?

    Thanks in advance

    Bolt on coil packs hardly ever fail, however TPS is your best bet.

    I don't know many people, in fact any people who have enlarged the MAP sensor housing on a stock K04.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Yeah but I've got one push on, so I need a bolt on to replace it with. Any idea how much they are?

    Ah ok mate.

    I'm not sure what that is, but it sounds more powerful than my ko4 haha. Maybe a bit overkill for mine then....

    I would say so..... Not really needed unless you go bigger turbo.... I'm sure there are lots of other mods you could do that would be more beneficial to you..... Have a little search about previous threads and stickies..... Everything you need to know is in there fella....
