    hose help

    After just buying my yellow a3 turbo which is running at 220bhp & 240 ft lb, de-locked, dehandled, smoothed, reiger bodykited, lowered, alloys, full exhaust system, adjustible boost controller, fast road recirculating valve, stage 2 chip, neuspeed clutch, uprated gear box (not bad for my 1st audi at only 20 years old )

    My car although its lower now

    basically was wondering about silicone hoses, gonna be getting yellow hoses and carbon fiber engine cover parts

    my car is a 1998 S-reg, i've been told by many people to get the samco audi S3 induction pipe and the golf mk4 5 hose turbo/cooling kit

    only problems i have encountered are that the golf mk4 kit which should in theory be the same as an a3 are dated 1999-2000 cars, there seems to be no kits specifically for the slightly earlier turbo'd engines and i was wondering if anyone knows if there was a change made at this time to the engine layout?

    Nice car but what have have you done to the back of it !!!!!

    It looks a bit to much "max power" esq. You could fit a football down your exhaust

    I know I sound like I'm having a go but Audi's are all about understated luxury driving, you've done well to get and A3 as your first car, but you've over done it a bit at the back.

    Yup you need the MK4 golf samco kit.

    Basically all you need to ask for is the kit for the AGU engine code as the turbo inlet pipe (TIP) is slightly different for the various engine types.

    Give 'em a call, they are a friendly bunch. You may have to wait a little longer for the pipes in yellow as they will need to be a special order.

    P.s. nice to see another yellow A3 on the forum! Thats three of us now! (not including S3s)[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    Did you have it done or was it something the previous owner had done?
