    Tidy car. But not an real RS3, a modded up 8L S3.
    You would get more of a response in the 8L section ask a mod to move the thread:thumbsup:

    It's a storm developments car yes. Apparently it is extremely quick, said the fella with the r32 turbo one at aitp, another storm project.
    When that engine came out I said wouldnt it be awesome in an 8l s3, its genius, the ultimate in my opinion

    That is rather tasty. I feel sorry for that poor chassis and mounts trying to contain that beast! I can almost picture the car being left behind by the engine.

    Yeah thats about right - a guy around here did a 13.7 with a map and a few other bits. He later done a 12.6 with a GT2871R :) (which, at some stage, will end up on mine all going well).

    You`re not still spinning half way down the strip though :p

    Does look pretty slow for 400bhp. Dont have sound at work so cant hear if it is spinning up a lot.

    yeah my best 1/4 time didnt quite correspond to my best 0-60 so there is room for improvement but only if you're not terribly fond of your clutch lol

    I cant see the mk2 being any less that 300 as its an 8p s3 engine in it. I think its now got a gt2871r . The s3 is super fast and does sound like a beast but i was told it was less than 700bhp

    Thought this myself! Also I was wondering if someone would fit the 1.4TFSI engine to an older shape VAG due to the power they produce :)

    This is a very very quick and unique S3. It has taken considerable development, expense and vision and is a true credit to its owner.


    ...and as for the MK2, well, it has an 8P S3 engine fitted and I won fastest MK2 last year @ Inters in it! It may not look impressive to you 4wd guys but be honest we all know how **** the surface is at Brunters especially when you only have 2wd lol!

    Lucky enough to have a go in this last week. Insanely quick, incredible acceleration, fantastic brakes. Rocket ship performance when you want it, but sensible when you don't. No turbo lag, picks up from 2500rpm, an amazing S3. There are some exciting engine/turbo options available from Storm Developments, pass me the credit card..................

    Andy, that new manifold looks good and that looks like a wagner intercooler. Does this mean the car is now finished?
