    For the cost of cams you don't gain much on a turbo car.

    Are you sure your only pushing out 309bhp at revo stage 2+ ? Should be around the 360ish mark

    Frankly,on a Stg2+ car,the answer is going to be no.

    The main sticking point on the car at that level is the stock turbo,which is pretty much finished at 360-380bhp,which is what your car should be producing right now.

    The other point will be the extra lift and duration of the new cams,and whether or not that will clear the stock pistons.

    If you have a big turbo conversion,and want over 600bhp,having done ALL of the other things you need to,including the correct pistons and rods,head and valve work,then it would be worthwhile,but on a stock head,mine is already turning out around 500bhp.
    The point there is that the stock head and cams are pretty good,and you would need to be looking at a lot of work to make a set of those cams worthwhile.

    Here's the build thread.

    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-sportback-8p-chassis/106134-time-build-thread-big-turbo.html

    A LOT of hard work from AMDTuning,making it all work and deliver reliably for a daily driver,and a fair bit of cash.

    In short....

    Suspension rebuild.

    Uprated brakes.

    Engine rebuild.

    ATP big turbo kit.

    Owen Developments GTX3076.

    Uprated LP and HP fuel systems.

    Exhaust mods.

    WMI

    Revo Stg4 software.


    And a bit more to come shortly.
