    Hi guys I'm getting a s3 very very soon n what I would like to do is keep up/ beat my mates one has a skoda rs sitting around 23zo/250 bhp and my other mate is in a focus st sitting on 320is, so that's my aim I don't want to be the slow one lol. I know I could get another car I could just jump in n whoop em but i really like the s3s n have done for a long time. My question is what will I need to do to get the results I'm after?

    Save some money. To beat the RS is going to cost you. First thing you will need is new rods, bigger turbo, intake, intercooler, exhaust manifold, exhaust system, injectors, re map, brakes, suspension, wmi.

    Ah so if I hit the 300bhp mark I'll be in safe running with them I won't look like I'm going back wards?

    You haven't even got the car yet.....so how do you know you will get beat? lol

    What are you trying to even beat them at? Drag? Twisties? Braking? Weight?

    Read through the link Voorhees has put up- all your unanswered questions for what you need to beat your mates will be there.....

    ps may want to give it all a proper health check as soon as you get it - before you wring it's neck and start throwing more mods at it that is
