    Does the kit look good quality and have they provided you with brackets to hang the fmic?

    And32, looks too good to be true for the cost but I'd love to know how well this cooler works when you finally get it fitted.

    So the n75 valve connects to the tip, is it the bottom small connection cloest to the turbo?

    Tim, the piping kit looks like it replaces the A3's existing charge side pipes which is why he asks. The one pipe in the picture looks to have an outlet for the DV as stated but not the N75. I am not familiar with the charge piping on an A3 as I have an S3, most kits for the S3 pick up from the OEM SMIC's so that maybe where the confusion is here.

    @And32, I would have a look at using as much of the OEM piping as poss initially to get the FMIC fitted then look to fitting whats left if you can. The other thing I noticed and may be an issue is the MAP sensor... on A3's that have them, its mounted in the top header of the OEM SMIC iirc and there doesn't seem to be provision for that either.

    I have the exact same kit on mine! it took a few adjustments but its fitted and seems to be working fine! Jump on my website below for a few pictures, mines fitted to a K04 turbo im not sure if it would be easier on the standard K03

    I will try and get Rich (the person that fitted most of it) to jump on here and help out

    any questions let me know and i will try and help

    I never had Fogs on mine at the bottom anyway, mine are in the main headlight for some reason ?? not sure if thats normal but when i pull my light switch out the fogs come on in there

    Im thinking about getting some custom pipes made up so that i can tuck the pipes in a bit more as they do stick out a little bit. I want to be able to get some grills put back in there to hide it all away

    What do you guys think ?

    yup agree it needs tucking in, perhaps cutting the pipes at the joins to the OEM pipes and get some longer sleeves maybe.....

    erm, the 1.8T's have fogs in the light cluster...as far as i know all S3's have fogs in the grills..never seen one otherwise pre face or post face

    Difference with the FMIC ? I cant really tell you if im honest cause all the work got done on my car in one go. It went from a totally standard 180bhp 1.8T then we added the new K04 turbo, S3 injectors and downpipe etc with the Exhaust and FMIC on there aswell. So i couldn't really tell you a difference but its all working together nicely :D .. just want a better re-map done really im sure its got more to give !

    I knew it would be too good to be true!

    Does anyone have the exact measurements of all pipes and the core that comes with the forge kit? Surely someone has tried to source their own pipework?
