    S3 North East Newbie

    Av posted up a few times now with problems i am having with the S3 so thought i would post up and say hi and introduce myself.
    1st of all my names Chris but all my mates call me Eddy, Nickname for some reason haha. I have just got a 2000 Audi S3 8L in red. The car is ment to be running 265bhp and i have a printout that shows this dated june this year but it has had a boost problem since i bought it what i have just sorted last night with a manual boost controller bypassing the N75 valve. Been looking at getting a ECS/H N75 valve this week what will hopefully sort out my over boost problem.

    Spec of the S3:
    Lowered on coilovers (Not sure what make)
    Audi RS4 alloys for the winter and Merc wheels for the summer
    Stage 2 map (Again not sure what map)
    Full milltek exhaust with sports cat
    K&N cone filter
    Forge dump valve
    Leon front splitter
    M249 valve bypassed

    Looking to get all new boost pipes over the winter, front mount intercooler and other little bits and bobs.
    Here is a few pics of the S3









    Merc wheels for after the winter

    DTM badges come from A4 DTM edition (to celebrate their DTM championship win they made an A4 DTM).

    It's looks like this:





    no harm having them there though, keeps people guessing!

    Also just ordered a new N75 H valve from audi today. £64 collect it tomorrow. Lets see if it fixes my boost problem and makes all the difference everyone says it does

    Its kind of sorted now, if this N75H valve dont fix it am just going to leave the manual boost controlle in there and run it like that.

    The car is at 265bhp for now, does it take much and cost much to fit a K04 or is it not worth the hassle?
