    Get it RR'd and see what your stage 2 is putting out?

    Should have gone with the FMIC before the stage 2 map though really.

    Other than that... K04 Hybrid if you dont wanna go BT

    Cheers Guys!

    Ok, so short shift is on the cards for a start then. I will go for side to side and up and down.

    See the FMIC, can I still keep my fognights? I see pics on here with FMIC but the pipes showing and I dont really want that. Looks mean and everything but I would rather keep it std looking, to a certain extent (says me with it lowered and BBS'ed up ). I am not going to put on S3 bumpers or spoiler etc.

    Last of all, if I did go for a K04 Hybrid, whats the rough costage? And I take it I need to re-remap it.

    I will look for a rolling road out here in Czech, could even drive in to Germany or Austria and see what it is putting out. I have always wanted to know

    Cheers

    Yea a short shift wouldnt be a bad idea.
    I think the Forge FMIC you can put behind the bumper without having to remove the fog lights...
    How about a Downpipe/Decat? Would make a noticable differance on a stage 2

    Found a RR up in Prague, about an hour and a half drive for me.
    http://www.mereni-vykonu.cz/galerie.html
    All in Czech language tho. I will give them a bell see if they speak ze English.
    Does that RR look ok? Normally they have two rollers right? And the wheels sit in between them?

    Garage I got most of my work done said I could not get a down pipe so I will ask about on this also.

    Will also mail Forge about the FMIC too.... see if I need to get shot of the foggies.

    try this for the K04...

    http://www.seatcupra.net/forums/showthread.php?t=216627

    Essentially a K04 hybrid with K03 fitment so will straight onto your existing manifold, the stuff listed as extra is Leon Cupra R as thats what Bill deals in but its the same as Audi stuff anyway so essentially S3 injectors, S3 MAF and TIP, S3 airbox or induction kit and maybe an S3 fuel pump.

    Prolly get most if not all from a breakers and the turbo is Ł505 + vat

    I am looking to get the S3 version of this K04 hybrid for my S3... should be good for 280bhp at least...

    Cheers for all these ideas guys! I needed them.

    Here is what is going on for a start then...
    Shortshift
    ARB's
    Clutch/flywheel
    FMIC

    Then maybe after that, a new turbo.

    I am now off to do my searching on the clutch/flywheel and email Forge on the FMIC.

    Cheers Cheers

    spence_star - "Got any pics of your car with the current mods?"

    You talking to me? Hehehe Sound like De Niro hahaha
    If so.... here is one for ya...





    Gonna get in on a Dyno within the next two weeks me thinks. Gonna order some Forge hoses and possibly short shifter. Bit dubious about getting any work done out here in Czech land though. Might save it all up and get the ARB's, Shifter, FMIC done all at the same time back in the UK.

    I have a relative coming out in June so they can carry the hoses, I reckon I am up for that task.... maybe

    actually the TT geartshift I wrote shortshift instead.

    Anyway, it still gives about 20-30% less throw and they are ~Ł20 from any dealer

    Was there much vibration through the steering after this was fitted? Or is it not as bad as some claim?

    Not much at all imo, not even worth mentioning. The improvement after fitting one is instantly noticeable. Im sure those who have it fitted would agree its a must have.

    You can pick them up pretty much anywhere and they cost roughly Ł20-Ł25. Someone also posted a useful fitting guide on the forum not so long ago if you want to DIY.
