    I HAVE A S3 ON A 99 PLATE WHICH HAS HAD A REMAP BY AMD TEKNIK AND HAS THE USUAL OTHER SMALL MODS SUCH AS FORGE DV,PERFORMANCE AIR FILTER, IVE SPENT A LOT OF MONEY SLOWLY REBUILDING THE CAR BUT USING PERFORMANCE PARTS,(BRAKE UPGRADE,NEW HOSES ON THE WHOLE ENGINE,NEW ENGINE MOUNTS,ALL BUSHES,HALDEX COUPLING) COULD GO ON FOR A FEW MORE PARAGRAPHS YET. IM NOW READY TO SPEND MORE MONEY ON THE OVERALL PERFORMANCE OF THE CAR BUT DONT REALLY WANT TO GO DOWN THE BIG TURBO ROAD AS I DONT WANT TO LOSE RELIABILLILTY SO IM THINKING OF GOING FOR A K04 TURBO. ??????

    You already have a K04 if you have an S3.... no need to shout about it lol...

    Do you mean a K04 hybrid? Read the K04 Hybrid sticky at the top of this forum...

    If your not ready to spend a lot of money then I wouldn't go for a hybrid while its not as much as a Big turbo its still a fair old chunk. Mine being a fairly standard S3 before i started my bill for doing all the stuff in the Sticky Hybrid KO4 is looking at 3500 notes this includes intercooler, hoses, rods, turbo, down pipe, the list goes on.
    Ive been Badger 5'd

    Can we break the magic 300?????? In a word Yes 314 BHP 249 lbft at Badger 5
