    Regal Autosport Vf Engineering RS/S S3

    Hey

    The car is now ready for me to collect from Regal tomorrow, had a good chat with Chris today about the work carried out and he's extremely pleased with the results and the installation!

    The car is running perfectly, Regal have spent a long time adapting the kit for the 8P S3 and perfecting the map along with GIAC to have the car run safely and within the limits of the standard engine internals, power and torque figures were important but not the main aim of the project, overall drivability and reliability were paramount!

    I will be posting up full logs and graphs later on today once I have them but to give you a quick idea of what affect the conversion has had on the car here are some before and after power/torque figure comparisons..

    With all the mods on the car previous to the conversion the car made

    358bhp
    348ft/lbs

    With the Regal Autosport Vf Engineering RS/S kit the car made

    417bhp
    385ft/lbs

    Although the top end figures are impressive, Chris tells me that one of the most noticeable differences is in the mid range pull, so the car is going to feel like it has a lot more than the power increase suggests!

    Picking up the car tomorrow, ill nick my brothers camera for the day and get a load of pics of the conversion too.. My god, I cant wait!!!

    Full review of the car tomorrow, ill have a good long drive back from Southampton so should have a good idea how well it goes after that!

    __________________________________________________ ______________

    Update 1:

    Here is the dyno graphs comparing the car when it drove into Regal and how it is performing now..

    You may notice the noise in the lines past 5500rpm on the Big turbo plot, this is the car trying to jump out of the dyno!! cool ey!

    You can run a filter on the results to get rid of any noise in the graph lines but Chris wanted to see a true result from the plot, notice just how smooth the lines are and the shape of the torque curve!!

    Its making 340bhp & 380ft/lbs at 4500rpm!!!!

    This is going to be amazing!

    (Dashed line pre RS/S - Solid line after conversion)



    __________________________________________________ ______________

    Update 2:

    So just got home from driving the car back 300 miles from Southampton, I have to say the car feels very very different after the conversion, even more so now its two cars in one!

    Cruising back at normal motorway speeds I achieved 31.9MPG which is better than usual, I put it down to a couple of things, the mapping has been 100% tailored to my specific car so no wasted fuel and also with the car now having a bigger turbo, at cruising speeds in 6th the car is not creating any boost, therefore needs less fueling!

    Anyways im sure you all want to hear about the performance, well.. Its pretty stunning to be honest!

    Even smoother power delivery than the K04, and all the way to the 7k rev limit, the car has been mapped such that the turbo boost is progressively introduced from 2500rpm so when you accelerate you ride a super smooth wave of torque and power, it feels less aggressive than the K04 kit, but its firing the car down the road much quicker!

    Bit cliche but its really one of those cars than anyone could jump into a drive and not even be aware that its running over 400bhp! Very much the feeling you get from a big engined car really!

    So all in all its pretty amazing, im extremely pleased with the results and cant wait to come accross some 'fast' cars!:D

    Oh.. And it sounds AMAZING!!

    Pics and video to follow in the next few days!

    __________________________________________________ ______________

    Update 3:

    So had a chance to drive the car in a few different conditions today, what keeps on impressing me is how smoothly the car comes onto boost and accelerates, really feels like a standard car, but not, if you knwo what I mean!

    From the engine bay things look pretty much the same as before, I chose to retain my Evoms intake, it had to be cut down very slightly before the MAF housing to fit but it enabled me to keep the cold air feed that I had spent a lot of time sorting out!



    Heres a quick picture of the PCV mod that I have been talking about, this blocks off the inlet manifold and you run the hose from the PCV to atmosphere, in certain conditions you will prevent yourself loosing 1-2psi boost when the PCV opens with this mod..



    On a side note I have also fitted the facelight tail lights, at the same time I installed the silver rear indicator bulbs which really clean them up! Look so much better than the non-facelift lights, they are tinted slightly, think thats what does it!





    Also the Lamin-X headlights, they need a while to settle in, looks like they have conensation behind them at the moment but that will burn off over time, really pleased with the look of them, pretty mean!





    Next step for the car is to get the Low compression forged pistons and forged rods in, de-cat the exhaust, go with bigger FSI injectors and re tune the car to suit, should be able to achieve 450bhp and 400ft/lbs after them modifications and run the car a little bit more aggressively on the boost in the mid range..



    Big thanks to all the guys at Regal, top job once again!!

    Jonny

    Wow that sounds like a monster of note! Very interested to see this. Please post detailed updates and reviews Well done

    What exactly is part of this kit to get it to those figures?

    Also on a side note, being part of the development of the EVOMS S3 CAI, do you have any idea of when it will actually be ready?

    Amazing stuff Jonny. A piece of engineering art that. I reckon this engine and chassis will handle 400+ easily. 450 definitely possible. It will be an EvoX/STi beater that thing. Would it beat your old Civic in its current form ??

    With the K04 the car would have been quicker than my Civic, because of the superior traction, the Civic would have had the edge over 100mph though..

    Now with the RS/S kit, it would have no chance at all! Infact, most things would struggle..

    That's pretty sweet!

    So it's just a plug-n-play kit? Was anything done to lower the compression ratio?
    Can you tell me more about your "custom" PCV as well?


    Though, I have to say I like your old setup better, for city driving
    Losing 50 lbft @ 3000rpm doesnt sound like a good idea when you are crawling along at rushhour speeds, which is what I have to go through almost daily.

    That does sound good!
    Just one thing, not wanting to put a downer on it. But when I had the turbo fitted to my R32 the injectors were replaced with 550cc ones. Now although the car DIS said I was doing 36mpg etc I only really got max 200miles out of a tank of fuel. At best I think I was getting 18mpg and about 5mpg at worst. Once you've driven it some more you may notice this. I presume the injectors were replaced.... One reason why I sold it! But if it really is doing that MPG I can see myself bypassing the Revo treatment!

    The car is running the standard S3 injectors at the moment as running with this state of tune there is no need to run larger injectors, when and if you do run the larger injectors the dash is re programmed to account for the increased flow rate so that the DIS is still accurate

    The MPG on the long run is just a real bonus to be honest, the car is just so effortlessly fast now, amazing!
