Ibis White Audi S3 / Progress Thread
Thought id get my progress thread up here from other sites ive put it on.
04/12/09 - New Car
Well the R32 went as I had nothing but problems with it from owning it brand new, VW couldnt fix it & refunded me all my money. Ordered a brand new S3 a while back & got it two weeks ago & loving every minute. As I didnt get to mod the R32 because of all the problems got alot more money to spend on this one which should all be happening shortly to get ready for Modball next year.
2009 59 Audi S3
Bose Sound System
Bluetooth & Phone Prep
Rear parking sensors
Flat Bottom Steering Wheel
Light & Rain Pack
Rest of stuff is standard so wont bother going into detail with that crap. Ive already ordered Evoms Intake & Forge DV which I have fitted the intake & the DV will be fitted next week (The sound of these two together is mint will have to get vids) Then the car is booked in for revo on 21st of December & will push out over 320bhp.
Any way **** pics but here it goes
Update 3/12 - Evoms Intake
Got my Evoms Intake & Forge DV Monday so went round to my mates Thurs to get them fitted, Took us 2hours to fit the intake went for summert to eat came back to fit the DV & he dint have the bloody tools to take it off :lol: so goin back round next week.
The sound of the intake is mint, sounds like darth vader under the bonnet, the turbo whistle is alot louder can hear me coming from miles away :lol: then if you come off the gas quick can hear the standard DV chatter through the whole car. It will sound better once the forge dv is on & alot louder n will hold boost better.
Gains are 7-10 bhp & 8-12 ft/lb with just the intake alone, Cant wait for the Revo map on the 21st as it will feel like a totally different car!!
Here is before & after pics, Thinking about a carbon engine cover now tho
Update 21/12 - Revo Remap & Forge DV
Had the car booked in Monday for Revo Stage 1 Map & Forge DV fitting, was there pretty much all the day talking to the guys at Prosport whilst the stuff was getting done. After several hours I went for a test drive & fook me its like a different car :lol:, Feels like there is two engines & no extra weight. I had the Evoms intake fitted a while back & the noise it makes alone is nice with the standard DV chattering slightly but with the Forge fitted its stupid :lol: can hear it from far away & people **** thereselves while wondering what the hell it is :lol:.
Really pleased with the outcome & am going back to Prosport in two weeks with a few mates in the cars to see what were all putting out, Bit gutted my mate with one of the other S3's has just got stage 2+ which I went down to AMD with him on Weds to get done & its putting out 370bhp :lol: which makes mine feel slow after driving them both :lol:
Here a few pics of the install with the Forge DV fitted, Ill get some vids up when the weather is better to give you an idea how loud the DV & turbo is spooling up when giving it some on a private road of course ;)
Next mods is some gold heat tape to wrap the whole intake tube & a Neuspeed carbon fibre engine cover. After them ill keep the car like that for a while get the Speedline Turinis then after Modball Stage 2+ (370bhp ish) :doublethumbs:
Update 25/12 - Richbrook Tax Disc Holder
As above one of the little presents off the gf for christmas am afraid no performance gains with this one. I think it looks good inside with all the rest of the other brush ali stuff & the mirrors on the outside of the car.
Next up some heat tape over the intake pipe & heatsheild to help with temps in the bay which I will be getting in gold as it is the best at reflecting heat as below
