    S3 8P Mods

    I collected my S3 last night after having a TBE Milltek, Dbilas, Autotech Fuel Pump and Custom Code Stage 2 fitted and wow...the car goes like stink!

    I opted for the resonated Milltek as its a 100cell sports cat apparently but it still sounds amazing...can't believe how differently the car goes and drives..

    thanks to Motorwerks in Aberdeen for doing a great job...

    Question though, is the standard S3 exhaust/intake worth anything or should i just let the garage keep them?

    Cheers,
    Daz

    After getting my Milltek I left my standard exhaust in a heap on the floor of AmD. They kindly binned it for me. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    Keep it mate - means you can sell the aftermarket exhaust when sell up time comes!

    your performance mods are exactly what i would do to the car!!

    any bhp figures yet?

    motorwerks dont have a rolling road but i do intend getting it done soon...they reckoned about 350 bhp/330 lbft??...i'm not really cared about the figures...the transformation is sensational and all for a little over 2k!

    anyone have any ideas what kind of 0-60, 0-100 qtr mile times this would do now??

    P.S. the clutch seems good for now

    anyone have any clue as to how much a turbo upgrade will cost...i'm already at stage 2 and feel the need for more...lol

    probably need a new clutch, although mine is holding out fine albeit i've only been on stage 2 for 2000 miles

    is there a big difference between stage 2 and 3 power wise?..do internals need upgrading etc...any drivability issues??

    ur mad for wanting to go stage 3 specially after the money youv just spent on stage 2 id say keep it at that for a while and then when ur bored have a think

    id keep ur intake if anything incase it has to go in for warranty though, my zaust is in the back garden lol cant do anything with it either
