I have been reading and posting for a while on the forum, And I tought I should share my progress of my S3
I'm from Holland, so don't be hard on the english haha.
This is the car
Done a few mods, such as; Big custom FMIC piping welded by myself :D
ic (5).jpgic (6).jpgic (12).jpg
Fitted a Spec solid flywheel, and a Sachs SRE Race clutch (550+nm)
Inline Walbro 255lph
A bilstein B16 PSS9 crossed my path, and fittet some brembo's
The last owner emptyed te cats, and I made a rear silencer bypass, And fitted a powerflex dogbone
As a final touch I did a wideband Lambda and ECU swap.
In combination with some mapping it made a whopping 290HP and 480Nm! talk about rod lottery...
I was driving around for months with that map, but after I found out about the torqe I tuned it down a little to limit the torqe
No TIP, no 3'' Downpipe no manifold, so I think it was impressive for such a stock engine.
Now the bad news. Last month it started to smoke when ideling, and under boost, I checked the turbo, and it had some axial play. So I think that is the end of it. Bought myself a cheap Golf 2 to drive around with. So I could fix the Audi.
Bought some ebay rods (200 pounds is not much and worth a shot imo) and had them balanced. They were spot on to the gram from factory. So I let them make some more oil holes like the IE ones got. Costed me around 300 pounds total, so I'm happy.
Also orderd a head gasket kit and some other stuff (T-belt etc), but still waiting til it gets here.
The plans are:
BBT k418T hybrid
630CC Bosch injectors
Renetless V3 manifold
3'' or custom TIP
I also have a rebuild AUQ head, with some AGN cams in it.
I wil start in about 1-3 weeks with removing the head. First I need to get rid of my old Leon 1M chassis to make some space.
Hope you like it
