      Hi mate been reading your club gti write up on your build and it's impressive great work have your videos on YouTube watch them daily for some inspiration on getting mine mapped at badger5. I also have an a3 agu s reg k03s conversion sorry rambling. Anyhow I was wondering where you got your rubber handbrake cover from I cannot find anything similar anywhere abit rude to ask but worth a try lol. Quick last question is it worth getting an s3 intank pump before the custom map or won't it make a difference as mine seems to starve when boost kicks in since the k03s. Thanks Ben

      Hey dude
      Do you know if the g60 flywheel & vr6 clutch setup would work on a 99 a3 quattro, it has got the 5 speed gearbox but I'm not sure if it's different to the fwd. wouldn't ask unless I was really stuck, thanks dude

      Hi Prawn,

      Do you know if there is a drop link that fits from the coilover body to a whiteline front arb on a a3 1.8T?

      Hi mate,

      just wanted to say congrats on a really great result on the TFSI turbo 370bhp from a humble 1.8 T is awesome. I'm hoping to go the same way, once it's available for a S3.

      Keep up the good work.

      Cheers

      Jit.

      Alright mate just signed up on here as ive bought a 1.8t 8l a3 and have ended up lowering it a little on coilovers. Now my off side drive shaft is rubbing on my arb even with the adjustable drop links in. Ive read on a thread that an audi tt front arb would do the job but I have a few questions about it. What year tt would I need to source one from and also will i have to modify anything when it comes to mounting it and whatnot. Id appreciate it if you can shed some light on this for me please.

      hey buddy would this turbo be worth a go? VW Golf mk4 GTI 1.8 turbo K03/K04 Hybrid turbo | eBay or just stick with getting a k03s?

      Evening, i dont suppose your the Prawn that used to ride trials with Jon Fisher are you?
      Either way, you seem to know the details regarding s3/tt rack conversions. I have a 2003 A3 TDI Quattro, and although handles well, i do want it sharper. I'm thinking R32 arbs and a quick rack conversion. However reading one of your posts, it will mess up my ESP.. Dont suppose you found any way to make it work did you?

      Cheers in advance
      Ali

      Hello buddy how are you? I'm not to sure
      If u have bin getting messages as my phone has bin playing up,
      Do u no if the vr6 clutch would work and be any good with my fly wheel? It's solid and I'm going to get it lightened to 6 kg as you said, but I'm not sure what make it is, I had it replaced with my clutch by a local garage so guessing it's the euro car parts one u mentioned before, not to are how they work of if they would line up or not, cheers mate

      Hello large man ! :)

      I havnt used brackets, just mounted it directly under the crash bar. Did u just cut the original brackets up and then redrill them? Might give it a go tomorrow, just got a coldside kit and waiting for my new silicone couplings to arrive and they need to be fitted too.
    24. Prawn
      Prawn
      haha. you've got to make your own brackets up mate. what's your looking like currently?

      the pipes fitting is entirely dependant on you mounting the core in exactly the right place. it needs to sit as far back as possible, and directly tight under the crash bar.

      the brackets in the kit don't fit anywhere at all, I just cut them up and used bits to make some new ones.
    25. Plunky
      Plunky
      hello mate, did you use the supplied brakets to fit the IC core or something else? want to sort mine out, the pipes look stupid sticking out!

      no discount mate, just what it'll cost you from siliconhoses.com, I'd call them if I were you!

      You got MSN to save using this gay thing so much?
    28. Plunky
      Plunky
      thats a good price, havnt got any pictures as yet, will try and get some tomorrow. its pretty in your face though where i have mounted it further forward, will look better when i have the black silicone connectors on the core. was that price discounted at all?

      I've actually stopped using mikalor clamps mate, I wasn't too impressed with them really. I still use them on the exhaust though.

      I think I paid £70 total for all the silicon bits I need, and a full set of JCS HITorque clamps to hold it all together!

      You got any pics of your IC fitted?
    30. Plunky
      Plunky
      hello mate, can i ask, how much did you pay for your replacement silcone bits and bobs? been speaking to roose motorsport and they seem quite good, would you recommend proper mikalor clamps?
    31. Plunky
      Plunky
      Lol ok mate, did the intercooler today, I put it directly under the front panel so the cooler sits quite far forward! Its what I wanted tho so is not too bad, its not exactly decreet tho! I was wondering if u could send me over the sizes for the silicone coupers cos I want to get some good black 1s!
    32. Prawn
      Prawn
      no. they can't do that mate. the only places that can easily help you with that are JBS themselves, Badger5, or R-tech. I'd go with badger5 of Rtech though, JBS are a bunch of cunts.
    33. Plunky
      Plunky
      do you recon they would be able to do a custom map on the agu with a hybrid from cr turbos or scroll productions?
    34. Prawn
      Prawn
      Storm are the most local place to you dude, less than an hour away!
    35. Plunky
      Plunky
      fair enough, where would you recommend local-ish to me?

      ok sounds simple enough, anything else that i need to know about? top tips?
    36. Prawn
      Prawn
      JKM can't map your car mate, they can only offer a stage 1 for the ko3 turbo, which is no use to you at all. you need a custom map to suit the ko3s on the AGU.

      The brass nipple needs to go near the turbo outlet, as it's to control boost via the N75. just put it somewhere that allows you to use the original N75 pipe.
    37. Plunky
      Plunky
      cheers matey, just spoke to jkm and they do a revo for just over 400. another question i was going to ask you, i'm gonna attempt to do the fmic this week pending on the weather, the small brass nipple, wheres this got to go?
    38. Prawn

      hello mate, my stage 2 map was done by custom code, through storm developments in aldermaston. I think it cost £330
    39. Plunky
      Plunky
      hello mate, u alright? where did u get your stage 2 remap done? and the price?
