    Hey guys, nice quick easy question. With the engine off should the flap be open on an S3? I done the flap mod ages ago but reverting to standard for a service tomorrow. Can't remember if it needs to be open or closed though I think open.
    Map is being uninstalled as I write ......boo!

    Nobody? Anyone mind having a quick peak up the left hand pipe to see if it's open?

    With the engine off and no vacuum it'll be open.

    Stick a Milltek on then put the map back on, I did this and it makes a big difference.

    Might know someone local who has a Milltek for a 3 dr. And lots of other goodies as it happens.
