    Makes sense, think i will go for a relentless setup tho.

    Crazypete : if you get this item can you let me know how good the fitment is?

    Its the righ one for the S3 yes, don't use the supplied turbo/DP gasket as it will eat itself in days... buy an OE gasket (not expensive) for that..

    You can 'get away' with using the one for the 2 bolt flange but this too may leak and fall apart over time so I generally use a 300 deg high temp silicon sealant

    Be aware though that quality control on these vary and on occasion they have been known to touch enough to rattle... there is a little movement on the turbo studs to help but some have found they need a strategic dent to clear

    thanks, ye im tempted with it, im replacing the turbo anyway so have new gaskets and the oil feed line. also replacing my flywheel and clutch so its a perfect time to be doing it all.

    i cant remember what sam was selling the relentless ones for.

    This chap on ebay is one of my friends, I have one of the downpipes withought the sports cat on my car and its really good, like tufty says the gaskets arnt the best i replaced the one at the turbo but really cant fault the quality other wise. The welds are flawless allround and the fit is spot on. If you want one I can put you in contact with him instead of going through ebay.....

    Hope this helps
