Damn!, I've always said I'd rather change cars than tune my S3 to 300+bhp! My thoughts was that the chassis was just not good enough to handle the power, and that a different base car would be a better solution! So my replacement for the S3 would have to have over 300 horses out the box!!
However, since my latest suspension upgrades, it's still not perfect yet, it feels it can handle more power now, and I'm actually umming and ahhing for a Big turbo upgrade. Sitting in Prawn's track car did not help the matter, plus I do love to venture out on the track, so more power = more smiles!
The only thing that's putting me off is the cost of the upgrade, and the potential unreliability of 1.8T's running over 300 bhp! It seems only Prawn's example is bullet proof, and he's not exactly shy about using the power neither!?
Just thought I'd share my thoughts at this moment in time! haha, it changes quite often throughout the day, as I'm sure most of yours do too.
