    I would've thought it would fit , but it might be due to the S3 having a remote DV at the front and the piping being in the way...
    Im just running a BSH PCV stage 1 PCV fix myself. Interestingly saw a thread on VW Vortex where a guy posted pics of the intake valves with and without catch can....VWVortex.com - Without/With Catch Can (Atmo) Comparison Pictures + Discussion

    BTW your better posting technical questions on VAGOC where your more likely to get a response....

    Alright mate
    Either the BSH or the Forge, both are good but te Forge one is £150 more but possibly a slightly neater solution.

    Alright mate
    Don't think forge have one on their site, but they may do al could be worth checking, otherwise I'm not sure, if you mail forge or call them they should be able to help you out, they are pretty helpful bunch of guys.

    good man
    but at stage 2+ if you drive the even remotely fast just pads wont be that much up to the task, youll have to start saving for a proper BBK

    You'll be buying a clutch before the intercooler and bbk. It will last literally 5 minutes.

    The current setup is a 6 pot system,and works as well as the AP and Alcon systems I've used previously.

    Just been speaking to AMD about catch cans. Apparently you have to be careful and make sire they have an outlet of either 17mm or 19mm preferably 19mm otherwise they can create back pressure?

    Btw, I don't know what that means but apparently it's not good! Lol. So maybe worth checking that before you order!
