    Unless you're loaded, go for the S3 mate. I love my 3.2 but unless you've got thousands to turbocharge it you'll get more power for your money on the S3.

    Ooh, Thanks for the quick response. One more small question, and the difference between the 8P and 8L S3. Thanks

    8P is the new shape version with the 2.0T 16V engine and the 8L has the old 1.8 20V engine

    V6 is a serious money when it comes to tuning. S3 turbo lump is much better potential and best of all is lighter! V6 is a massive old heavy design therefore needs a lot of work to make it as good.

    Have a look at my sig and can see what's easily doable with an 8p S3 to get these number on either an 8L or V6 your looking at mega bucks.

    It's really all down to personal preference and cash. If I had 20 grand, it'd be turbo charge the v6 rather than a standard 8P S3, but with that money you could completely rebuild an 8L S3 to your own spec.
