    Right a few cheap and cheerful mods done today quickly,

    First off i saw the thread recently about heatshields as it was something i have been planning to do for a while so PM`d S3Dave on here and he sorted me out with a really good deal and the Heatshield was here the next day :)

    Fits perfectly so cheers Dave and here is a quick pic, you can alsosee where i have fitted the 80mm tube for my cold air feed in the pic too.

    Here is a qick pic of the other end of the 80mm tube behind the passenger side fog light grill

    I know people have said the cold air feed does nothing really but it cant hurt to have a direct feed to the filter inside the heatshield.

    i am sure someone will correct me if i am wrong, but it looks like you have covered up one of your intercoolers, so i'd expect hotter intake temps, then again you have a fmic ?

    Not had a chance to test or log it at all yet will have a play over the weekend but it cant make it worse as any improvement in cooler air has got to be better.

    Got my Revo SPS select on its way so i can have a play with my settings eg boost etc soon too :)

    Rob, that air filter is doing you no favours, i think that is a angled jetex for a standard s3, you will see gains with the bigger one...

    I angled it down as its actually the specific S3 jetex induction kit (twas a £35 bargain) so the filter has an angled neck on it so does look a little droopy lol.

    Probably gonna get the 80mm JR filter at somepoint

    Yeah i am gonna swap it over once i get a chance as i know there is now a revised version with a stronger neck to stop the splitting issue

    Heatshield is great though highly reccomended :)
