My S3 has just had the JBS 05 conversion.
In kind of new to here but felt i should post up about my car and the work i have just had done ...
I'd had the car Custom Coded before and was happy with the upgrade for a while... But like most i wanted more ! But my problem was i didnt want to spoil how the car drove/delivered the power it had. I looked at IHI conversions and the like but when i heard that a new kit from JBS Autodesigns was being developed... i was there !
The conversion is a hybrid turbo based on the K04 but with a fair bit of "customising" going on with it then a full Custom Code stage 3 map to get the car running spot on.
I liked this idea as it used the standard other parts such as manifold and pipe work.
Well i dropped the car off and since picking it up on friday ive done nothing but smile! The power figures before ( with stage 1 custom code) were... 263.7 bhp with max. torque being 284
Now with the new set up its...311.8 bhp and torque being 340.7
Fly wheels figures i expect but... im happy
The drive from the car is just what i wanted. So much more fun with no noticable lag at all. its just like before but in fast forward !
There are still options for me too, With the developement of a new hi flow manifold and i could fit a 3 inch down pipe and a sports cat... JBS have told me all 3 of the above are now whats holding the car back and upto 340/350 bhp should be possible with the stock internals.
In short, Im a happy man.
If you want you S3 to be what Audi should have released as an RS3 give them a try.!
