    Hi all,

    ...I am looking to buy an S3 - But ideally want close to 400 BHP.

    Just wondering if anybody here has a high powered S3 or TT...? and just wanted to know what they're like?

    Reliable? Driveable?

    Thanks

    Have a read of this mate, a good read up there, should hopefully be sorted soon and will be touching some BIG BHP...

    Not mine, but someone else on the forum, send him a message if you want some info on it.

    Cheap and fast is not reliable, cheap and reliable is not fast, fast and reliable is not cheap!


    (not sure it's strictly relevant here, but I think it's a cool saying... :o.k:)

    a few on here have had the eliminator (GT28) turbo upgrade and say if they did it again they would go for a K04 hybrid turbo as the S3 is not liking the power what with the chassis and that was with suspension done as well.keeping it around 350 was adequate enough was what I was recommended.

    I'm new here, but that saying is spot on from personnal experience. You say 350bhp is plenty, but I was just wondering what would be required for that amount of power? What power can the standard internals handle?
