GTRS Eliminator Finally Fitted
Picked up the S3 from Star Performance last Friday complete with a brand new GT28RS turbo and 333bhp/306lbsft at 1.45bar. What a difference, the car finally goes properly!!!
Milltek have been taking ages to make the cats for it, so long infact that I couldn't be arsed waiting anymore and went and picked it up without. Just my luck, they turned up about 20mins after I set off for E38. Dropping the car off again tomorrow to get them fitted and one more remap.
The Eliminators are a total b!tch to fit. They don't go in well with the quattro transmission and six speed box. There's a bit of modifying of the gear linkage to be done, and it needed a custom TIP and airfilter. The standard injectors couldn't handle the power, so I've put in 550cc ATP items with the correct spray pattern, and the N75 was hopeless at delivering the boost so I've gone for an Apexi AVC-R controller. One thing that had been putting me off for ages was the lack of decent manifold. Not a problem really, it gets the power on the standard mani no problem. Infact Jim has had to limit the power just to keep the internals safe.
Cost wise, it came in at well under £4k. and the insurance has gone up to £700 a year. Not bad at all....
I'll get some pics up soon :blackrs4:
