    S3 Facelift Vid. What mods to achieve chatter.

    Hi all,

    I really like the OEM look and feel of orginal cars. I would prefer descreet hidden mods without the need for air filters etc.

    Can anyone shed any light of whats in the video. I would posibbly stretch to a REVO remap / miltek TBE.

    More to the point, what gives the chatter.

    No, you are right, it is the Audi. *10B got there.

    As for the noise, I have no idea what is making it, but I am sure the answer will be here soon.

    I know mate , I just deleted some other crap I wrote about how they managed to record that vid. Looks like it was strapped to their chest?!

    Anybody make out the road signs? They look like German Stadt signs to me, but I stand to be corrected.

    What would it sound like with just a dv valve on with no intake?

    i think the best way to achieve that is to get forge dv and cai together. didn't hear any forge dv without cai, so can't tell.
    yes blazin, it's probably forge dv .

    if you get a spacer one, then the hot air wil go out and cold air go back in but not sure if thats good for the engine.

    jsut get a forge diverter valve imo.

    also, a drop in aftermarket air filter may help (K&N)

    Yea, sounds like he's running a Revo map with a high boost setting. My car makes exactly the same noise, I bet there is a Forge CAI on there too, as well as a Forge DV.

    It'll need an itake to get the noise so vocal. It's really quiet otherwise (you can only just hear it). Either an EVOMS or Forge would do the trick with the forge DV.

    If your talking about the small carbon looking thing, I don't think it'll make much of an improvement in noise. I could be wrong!
    I was advised that i'd have to lose the engine cover as there is a huge filter in there blocking the noise and it doesn't escape.

    There must be someone out there that's tested it......?

    Carbonio make little if any performance difference I'm afraid.
    You have a little more mid range response, but no specifc gains on max torque or power.
    I ran one for a while and ended up going back to the stock intake assembly.
    It does look nice in the engine bay though and was perhaps marginally louder than stock, but could have been a placebo affect!

    If you want performance and a little more noise, then as stated, I proper CAI like the Evoms, Forge or Dbilas will hit the spot

    You can buy an Evoms engine cover to keep it relatively OEM - the grey insert is whatever is on your stock engine cover:

    Definitely the sound of a Forge DV + intake (a proper intake not one of these silly Carbonio jobbies).
    I have a Forge DV and Forge Intake and mine sound almost exactly the same.

    Regal don't have any of the engine covers in stock right now. They're waiting for their next big shipment to stick one in for me. Mention that you're a member of *cough*another forum and they should be able to do it for about 100.
