    Forge DV

    Just recieved a virtualy new forge dv of chris this morning but was just wondering what the inside should consist off.
    Just took it apart and its running a green spring with 4 spacers! Seems quite strong, i know on a standard s3 you should be running green spring but should it have the spacers aswell, seems abit much

    Whip them out and see how you get on, if its not holding then add another and so on.

    Trial and error to see what suits your car etc I'm afraid. I dont have any spacers in mine, just the spring but I'm only running a pony 150bhp AGU.

    Ok so fitted the new forge dv and the difference between the oem and this is hard to describe.
    First the fluttering/chiriping noise has gone, the car seems to hold better, it picks up quicker around the 2000rpm mark. It just seems better, maybe aslight bit torqueier if thats aword.
    Compared the two before fitting and the original one was just s*hite really, dont know if its down to its age but the diapghram was quite easy to push up compared to the forge (even with just the green spring in)

    In all quite impressed

    Yeah definately, but i got the whole set of springs, spacers etc for 65 which is aright bargain.

    No not yet mate but think im going to experiment alittle because i think it could do with one or two
