    Help guys..
    The seller doesnt know if this will fit my car either. :(

    Does anybody know whether this item...
    Audi TT S3 225 Silicone Induction Intake Pipe Leon Seat
    will fit my 2010 S3 2.0TFSI engine fitted with the K04 turbo?

    In desperate need of assistance as my TIP seriously requires a change.
    Any help would be much appreciated !!!

    Thank you in advance. :icon_thumright:

    No. That is for the 225 BAM engines which ran from 2003-2006 (S3 8L and Leon Cupra R).

    We have a very different pipework configuration.

    I guess, loosely speaking you could say this is our equivalent on the 8P2, and your may be different again on the 8P3:

    The one you are looking at goes in this engine (as pictured):

    They usually come as part of a kit with a Cold Air Intake kit.

    Can I ask why yours needs to be changed?

    Herman, I think the kit you have put a link to is a discharge kit, not a TIP (Turbo Intake Pipe).

    Actually you know ignore my post there all turbo discharge pipes, replacements for the TIP are usually part of a new induction kit and come in silicon tubing.

    what you need is something like the left hand pipe (silicone section with chrome tap off pipe)) of these three pipes. May be different on 8P3.

    No.

    Just checked Forge site and they don't seem to do a specific TIP.

    You will only get one as part of a CAI kit as far as I can see. That is for the car in the pictures I posted earlier.

    The OEM part is a oval shaped which means you will not be able to get a silicone replacement. You will need to buy the OEM part from a dealer or get a full replacement CAI.
