    Im currently at a stage where my car has reached the max power on stock injectors with hybrid and all supporting mods,

    I have stage 3 hybrid turbo dynamic

    S3 intercooler

    Egr delete

    Maf delete

    Custom cai

    Milltek decat non res

    Maf delete

    Theres no more supporting mods i can do, the car is currently running 238.7bhp amd 364ft lb of torque mapped at 1.8bar still returning 47mpg

    I need to know if anyone has upgraded there injectors or knows whether it will be worth while me upgrading to the bosio 1287+ injectors

    Or is there any other way for me to gain a little more power out of the engine ?

    Please dont say get an s3 lol

    Can't say about the extra power but that looks so much better than when it was on the CH's.

    Bosio R1287+ should be good up to 300bhp IIRC?

    What's the limit of your turbo? If you go for the injectors and find the turbo tops out at 250bhp, you'll need to budget for a bigger turbo!

    Exact reason i ditched my tdi after stage 1 and went to an S3, now you've invested too much to let it go.

    Bang for your buck you really can't diss the :s3addict: :kissmyrings:

    Any more pictures of the grey rotors? I've spent a fair amount on mine as well, selling up would be unwise. I just have to wait for a big accident or engine failure to move on. The 3.0TDI A5 or A4 would be my next choice.

    Biggest issue is the lack of Quattro. Dunno if you can put much more through front wheel drive (and still have it easily drivable).

    I think the rears are 286mm, upgrade to the s3 brakes... 310mm
    I haven't had the need to change pads or discs since I upgraded nearly 2 years ago

    Go for firad 1287+. You get 120% than stock injection and even if you do not want that much fuel you can cut them back and have very good egt temp. I have 2260vklr and currently making 2.0 bar stable and 2.1 peak with stock injection making somewhat 250 hp... These engines have a lot to give...

    That only adds extra weight. .. lol get that out and disable egr. I had coolant loss before. Had to top it every week and it was egr cooler. Egr cooler and head cracking both get the car having white smoke when starting in cold. Don't forget oil cooler kit and fuel cooler at intake so you can have lower temperatures inside combustion chamber...

    Believe me that's a very good price regarding it has all you need... There isn't much science about putting this in the car. You just have to take out the cover on the bottom of the heat exchanger on the oil filter and assemble the the sandwich plate. The cooler location should be on your driver's side behind the fog light assuming you have s3 bumper.
