Can't believe that they rev over 10k as didn't think it would take it
That side exit is mental but think it would be a tad to loud ;)
I can see anything bigger than 3" fitting past the propshaft on the S3, its bound to rub or knock somewhere in that area.
Got to admit I've never heard of anything bigger than 3" on an S3 but also not sure if it has been tried?
I expect it would be a challenge if even possible to get anything bigger past the prop?
Who's keen to cut the under carriage in the quest for more HP :laugh:
Exhaust Resonator De-Cat Silencer Universal 3.0" Turbo | eBay
Like that. A lot of Jap systems have those.
Could have that in the standard center box location and a proper box where the standard cat would be. Didnt think of it looking like a cat so thats a cheeky plus lol.
Suppose an ideal solution is an exhaust valve and then can have best of both worlds but that's just a pain in the arse
Aye easier just to stick a few boxes in it. I think with a front box in place of the standard cat, resonator in the middle and a backbox it'd be alright. I remember a similar subject on driftworks years ago and soneone said they knew of 500bhp+ cars that sounded almost standard because they'd run loads of boxes and it never really effected performance either. Only one way to find out though and that's to get it build, let it soot up and see what it's like. If its too loud change a box. Also different packing in the boxes can make a difference so could be worth looking at which does what.
Will when i get some free time ring around for some quotes with a cat back with a ****e load of boxes lol
Little update although nothing major, mainly just been connecting lots of stuff up
My rear springs have eventually shown up as one of mines currently in 2 :faint: wasn't impressed with the state of the package from the couriers
Mocked up what the tip should end up something like
A pic that gives you an idea of the size of the pipe, Mila's got a thing with sticking her tongue out at the mo lol
Couple of pics of where its up to at the mo, pretty much everything is connected now with just the charge pipe to do
The coolant hardpipe that had previously forgot to take pics of
Coolant lines which were an arse to get round the tip
Pretty much all got left engine bay wise is charge pipework, tip and fuel lines
I have decided for now to run just the 044 inline and see how it goes? It may well be a nice future project
Tial is still quite near the change cables on this revised version I see... bit of extra heatshielding wouldn't go amiss... looking good though dude... :thumbsup:
Can't wait to get mine up and running now but i've picked up another head and looking into bigger valves and solid tappets so it will never end :sob:
Cheers mate it's going to be tight with the wastegate outlet to the box and prop, will look into making a heatsheild of some description ;)Quote:

Iirc you've got the same tb? If so how did you find the connector as states on IE's website that it may need minor modification but doesn't say in what manor? The plug goes on half way but didn't want to be to forceful with it...will have to look at it in a bit more depth on Monday
How big is the tip? And maf?
Been lookIng at them today myself
It's a compact housing he has so I guess 3"? Unless that 90 bend has 3" one end, 4" the other?
Lol tip is 3' to 4' 90 silicon and 4' there on, the maf is a rs4 unit with a 90mm OD but have machined a plastic sleeve to press on to it to bring it up to 4'
Pic of the part no
The billet velocity stack then takes the size up to 6' and will be looking to get the biggest filter can get in between the stack and the headlight ;)
This is the filter I originally got when still had the battery but now have got some room over that side will be trying to get near enough the biggest one I can fit in there ;)
I also fired off an email to IE and they said there's a little tab that I need to shave off on the tb plug then shall fit nicely :)
You selling that other filter then? ;)
Yeah the other filter can potentially be up for grabs ;)
Mine is 3inch inlet aswell. I want to run a 90mm tip with 4.2s4 maf housing which is what i was looking at. If i can find an rs4 one then thats even better. The s4 one i believe is 87mm o.d. 90 would be better obv.
Where did you get the maf housing stace?
After some suggestions for exhaust places guys? Have got quotes from blueflame and pipewerx but are miles and miles away from me
Have also tried Jetex who said don't do custom and piper exhausts said the same but am waiting on a phone call back about possibly making a 3' system as an off the shelf option like Jase had previously been discussing?
Anyone reconmend any other reputable people preferably in the south east area?
There's always the likes of powerflow lol
I forgot to say earlier. Cute daughter!
I might be in touch about that filter then. Does it need a velocity stack?
Powerflow? Nooooooo. You'll end up with a 150db 5" bean can with pressed bends!
MIJ which is around the birmingham area, still bloody far for you
Know any good welders around your way? Just buy the bits and get it welded up by them. Dunno about companies around your way. Everywhere is miles away like you say.
Few meters of 3" pipe on ebay isnt much, just be the boxes that`ll make up the cost. Im going to be buying some pipe and a backbox from ebay after holiday and fingers crossed me and Jon are going to make one similar to the one he`s just built himself which is really good quallity. His is 2.75" catback but im going 2.5" and building it from the center box back. Main bit i want to get rid of is that nasty squashed section under the diff and the heavy backbox.
He`s got an MIJ japcan like i had on the A4 and im going the same route again as i love S3`s with nice cans out the back like all the greek 0-400 cars and unitronic beasts. Comes with bung that i`ll use if needed for track days and its only 38quid or something. Going to cost me about 80quidish for a 90 and 45 bend, 1m straight 2.5" and the backbox
I know I keep banging on about this but you are taking it to Bill''s right?
LCR Race car
...and of course mine :)
See you could have stuck another box in that and kept it lol.
Bills exhausts look sexual. Think I might get a price!
no one remember sandips??
3 inch. large box mounted sideways.
i got a quote from a place in burnley for exactly the same in 3 inch and it was about £350. then i got the milltek.
I`ll just leave this here..
Hoping mine will replicate that angle and upsweep, box wont be as big and it wont be as ASBO haha.
He might still have a race cat. It screams more "look at me my cars modified", which is why I like the Milltek. Reasonably OEM looking rather than ricer.
