    Hi guys. Thought I would introduce myself. I have been looking at the forum for the past 2 weeks since I bought my Audi. My names Matthew from North east of Scotland.

    I have a 2003 Silver S3 BAM engine. The previous owner carried out all the work to the car. I believe he received alot of information from here. The work was carried by an engine specialist I has all receipts etc to prove this.

    The car has:

    forged con rods (riffle drilled),acl race bearings,new piston rings, wossner pistons, forged bottom end

    large port AGU head fitted with new valve stem seals and guides

    turbo dynamics k04 stage 2 hybrid

    relentless 3inch down pipe and 200cell race cat
    miltek 2.75inch cat back
    Brembo gt junior calipers

    3inch turbo intake pipe
    forged silicone boost pipes

    neuspeed quick shifter
    da-31 inline fuel pump
    front mount intercooler (massive) 3inch in/out reduced too 2.5inch!

    forge 007p d/v
    uprated clutch and pressure plate fitted on 21/02/2013 (carbon kevlar clutch)

    cambelt brand new just fitted

    custom remaped running 296bhp!! pulls like a train maxed out injectors but more than sufficent fueldelivery pressure!!!

    (Taken from advert when bought car)

    now the previous owner has told me he turned the actuator down by 2 turns at the moment. The car every now again at part throttle goes into limp mode. Now I think its running standard injectors. Also the previous owner says the car has a pretty big boost spike.

    My plan is to turn the actuator up 2 turns, fit 550cc injectors and get a custom remap. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a mapper to suit my needs :). I hear good things about RTech and Badger5.

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, the forum doesn't know the car, but I do recognise it from a previous post here.

    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/general-chat/204765-audi-s3-timewaster-thief.html

    I hope you got it for a good price, and it brings lots of joy for you though. :icon_thumright:

    I've had mine for 12 years, and it sill gave me a huge grin today driving it! :racer:
