    My zorst is awesome, bedded in now! I went to see a mate of mine the other day and as i pulling up to his house he come out and heard the sweet engine note whizzing through. I can hear that growl from the turbo now!

    I do get excess fuel travel down the pipe now, it pops alot everynow n then. Need a remap but gona wait n get the fully jobby with the TURBO UPGRADE (my favourite word). I've been out scaring scoobies since and will do. Oh and the other day, wat can i say the BMW 330i shouldnt have pushed his luck coz i just wiped the floor with him. haha! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/fuck_you.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/fuck_you.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/fuck_you.gif

    Sound good IRL Defratos, especially when blipping the throttle, really meaty, but not in a chav like sound, not sampled the sound from inside the car in motion though.

    Got to agree with DavidR. It's been tried and tested that exhaust/cat/de-cat makes very little difference, if any at all.

    You would have been better putting your money towards a new manifold... that's where the restriction is.

    So if you are getting a turbo upgrade, why waste money on a downpipe and cat which may not be suitable for the turbo you fit?

    That seems a tad stupid to me...

    Surely best to get the turbo etc first...then build the exhaust to suit?


    As it stands...you have spent big money on something that doesn't add any repeatable (if any at all) power...and may need to be thrown in the bin if it doesn't match the new turbo

    Just a thought...

    Maybe he's got a deal with his tuner that he will alter the dp for his new turbo/manifold.Exhausts a touchy sbject on hear,mines quite loud but the noise at 6-7k is pure heaven and what having 5v per cylinder is all about.

    lol, funny how everyone chats with each other /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif. I just like seeing upgrades done, even if it doesn't get you any power I'd like to know. I agree with much of what u guys are sayin, but I like driving around with a slightly less standard S3 (for better of worse) lol

    I have to agree with ess_three on this one, txt speak /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif me off something silly, it takes no longer to type the right /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif words, just like thanx - it's only one extra /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif key to press and far easier to type!

    Rant over, nice exhaust anyway revdup, can't wait to hear more about your turbo upgrade. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    That makes no sense at all...

    Anyone?
