    My honest opinion is, if you want a car with more power, then change to a car that was designed to have 300bhp+ from the outset, so Evo or Subaru would be the route I take. But if it has to be an Audi S3 you want to drive with the big BHP, then go for the Big turbo!

    Bear in mind you will also need to invest in better brakes to stop quickly, and some uprated/lowered suspension wouldn't go amiss to help you corner quicker! It all adds up at the end of the day.

    Big turbo sounds like a great idea, but from reading obviously there are pro's and con's

    A hybrid K04 turbo seems like a better option, some say even though a bigger turbo may be more powerful, they take longer to spool up.

    Don't forget to budget for;

    Front mounted intercooler
    3" downpipe

    Bigger injectors
    Silicone TIP and turbo hoses
    Uprated conrods

    you cant compare a hybrid k04 with a GT30...
    have you experienced either/both?

    best advise is try one......... and not take what you read as gospel off forums.

    you need a lot more power to make an S3 feel fast such is their lardy arse tendancy
