    Just a quick question,nice and short,what is more restrictive,cat or manifold for a audi a3 1.8t 20v ?
    Just got my k03s and want to get everything fitted same time,also im not sure if its worth me getting a airfilter as i have a pipercross panel filter or should i just sand the box down as people say this helps,if so has any body tried this and is it a simple take off cut fins and sand and put back on,also got my intercooler today to,what sort of bhp should i be looking at with this all fitted with a rtech remap ? thanks alot guys i said short but got carried away lol :jump:

    Foam panel filters such as the Pipercross are not the best.... been known for foam to degrade, go hard and flake off into the turbo.... panel filter such as the Green Cotton are a better solution or maybe an induction kit... there are plenty of threads wobbling on about those....

    No need to play silly buggers with the air box... mine is factory fresh and supporting 380 odd bhp with the help of 4" cold air induction hose and Green Cotton panel filter...

    Power wise I believe around the 220bhp is achievable....
