you need to budget £4k+ for a decent job. (330bhp level)
S3 is so much more difficult given the transfer box and space restrictions for underslung options
dela, did i see your a3 parked up top or brimscombe hill this morn? just below common. looked just like car in your sig.
yeah man thats mine, i just smashed my 6th sump in coming up that hill! there was a rock size of an american football, didnt see it till too late and smack! if you have a look when you're coming up someones put sand down to cover all the oil, the amount of smoke coming out was ridiculous, i was getting high of the fumes! having to drive a ****ty little yellow saxo at the moment, depressing.
didnt realise badger billl was based in stonehouse, that isnt the VW specialist next to the petrol station is it?
no, right next to milk marketing board on oldends lane is where bill is.
i noticed that sand today, unlucky mate.
small world aint it!
BT is a different prospect completely, and more ££ as a consequence..
consider other things that will be required before this.. fmic, decent exhaust, clutch probably, brakes etc etc
£4k+ is the region from which it would start from - very much down to spec
hitting dyno again in a hour. results and vids will be posted early tomorrow
woooohoooo Hope she does you proud mate
350 bhp but couldnt rev past 6k rpm. slight issue with fuel at top of rev's.
once bills adjusted fueling, i think we'll see 370. post vids 2moz
best of the vids we got. only rev'd to 6k rpm
i've got graphs, but cant get them scanned into laptop at mo
looks like a machine though!
finally found the time to get mapping sorted today. fuel is spot on all way through rev's.
smooth to drive now, and you can confidently rev it now.
its nice to have it all 100% finished now :-)
i may add a water injection kit at some point, but other than that the spending has finished thank god!
would like to hit the dyno again before vw driver day at combe (less than 2weeks away) but dont think i'll find the time.
main thing is, it drives superb now, issue free
many thanks to Bill for continuing to adjust maps after vairous coil pack and maf related problems, you got there in the endhttp://www.seatcupra.net/forums/images/smilies/grin.gif
great thread matt thouroughly enjoyed it
i've done what i wanted to, built a big turbo a3 quattro. its a very nice car to drive.
just cant afford it and a van.
i'd much rather have the money in bank, than car sat in garage with job change coming up.
crikey.. good luck with job etc.. and car sale. sad to read it
one hell of a lot of car for your asking price
thanks bill. it really was last thing i wanted to do..... but with work situation changing in near future, the money will be usefull.
gutted for you mate. would you sell the mtms?
havent got mtms mate.
i dont want to strip parts off the car, i want to sell it as it is.
Gutted for you Mat after all the money you spent and work Bill put into it.
Good luck with the job change and I'll give you a shout when mines done... It was partly your fault I went for a BT ;P
thanks mate, would love to see how yours goes.
your build threads a good read!
good luck with the sale matt..
one hell of a lot of spec car for the asking price..
someone should snap this up
i know one thing, i'll be gutted to see it go, but cant afford to turn the chance of new work.
someone's guna get a bargin
If I had 8K I'd snap your hand off :)
GUTTED !! I have a good idea how you must feel, i too had to let my baby go recently. I am glad it's going to a good home though. Hopefully someone will buy yours and enjoy her as much as you did
yea well lifes a ***** sometimes lol
i ideally would like 8k, but am open to offers
before you sell it matt, could you get a picture up of how your fmic is piped out, this fmic is seriously giving me a headache :(
Its piped up the same way an S3 is mate. The custom charge pipes Bill made follow the same route as an S3 setup.
There are pics of Mat's FMIC in the thread here...
some one must be intrested in this....
make me a offer,, would consider part ex
Only just seen this amazing car. Hands down to you mate, done what you wanted to do, cant fault you. Respect for that. Great build thread read it all and enjoyed it.:applaus:
I'm gonna be doing a simalier project on my car next year or on a 2.0tfsi depends on overall cost and my current chassis.
Sorry to see you have to sell the car. Have you tried putting it in pistonheads and ebay? Who ever gets the car, gets them self a real good bargin.
Good luck with the sale mate:thumbsup:
thats one seriously sorted car for £7500 :)
its on pistonheads. dont wana go down ebay route yet..... rather a forum member has it, so i know its looked after, rather than someone just use and abuse it
really do need space in garage now......
open to offers
What year is it Matt?
