    hello all after my last post if any1 read it i was planning to sell up. but now decided that i just cant part with my s3!
    now i am on the hunt for getting my cars performance up to speed so i am happy with the power and hopefully be in time for gti international! just a few questions before tho.

    1)my mileage is on 99k (i do plan on keeping the car for a while now will it be safe to mod with this mileage?i am taking out aa warranty to which does cover for clutch,gearbox,and engine so i thought it should be ok.)

    2)the list of mods i want to get done are, stage 1 remap,decat,panel filter/or a induction kit,not too sure if its a dv i need?or if its called recicurculation valve i just want the woosh sound and to help with the turbo? and a tip.

    while looking for these parts i just want to make sure i am buying the right things for my s3 its the 210bhp engine. so i am going to post a few links if any1 could tell me if price wise they are ok and if they are the right parts! if any one has these parts and wants a quick sale to please let me know!ps my car is completely standard at the moment!

    remap will be getting booked with ben im sure a lot of you all know him.

    Pipe Werx 3" Audi S3 TT 225 Exhaust De Cat Bypass (for our 3" downpipes) | eBay will this fit onto my normal exhaust?


    SFS 3" Turbo Intake Pipe - S3 8L/TT 225/LCR (AH12/80)


    RECIRCULATION DUMP VALVE - FORGE - VW GOLF 1.8 TURBO MKIV FMCL007P | eBay

    Forge Fast Road Closed Loop Diverter Valve 1.8T - FR&R Tuning| MAHA Dyno Rolling Road Tuning| Stage 1, 2 & 3 Engine Performance Upgrades - (Powered by CubeCart)

    thank you for looking at my post! sorry if this has all been repeated lol thanks in advance!!!!

    In terms of stage 1....I got a B5 TIP from Bill @ Badger 5 from here. As you have a 210bhp version- you may need the TIP that has been made to cater for vehicles without ESP. Not sure if yours has ESP or not- but the link you posted for the SFS is for an S3 with ESP.....

    The B5 kit included a TIP, heat shield and cone filter. This added to a Forge 007P or 008 along with a Stage 1 remap gave the woosh sound that you're after.

    For a DP and De-cat, I'd contact SamBryant from here as he is a representative for Relentless and will get you the best prices available. I got my goods delivered in 4 days after payment.

    Just re-read your original post... didn't realise it was a decat you were looking at... that won't fit a std S3 downpipe... it will only fit a pipeworx 3" downpipe (it even says this in the listing)

    Std S3 downpipe looks like this

    It will fit to your system but not your down pipe...

    To be honest mate the downpipe is the restriction cats or not... decat will realistically only make it sound a bit louder...

    The relentless (or pipeworx) 3" downpipe with decat or sports cat would be a better option IMO even when paired to a std system

    As tuffty says really..the decat alone doesnt really do much (mines not even that much louder) its just a ballache at mot time..to give you a rough idea i hav the same mods exactly + non res cat back and it reads a constant 271bhp on the liquid gauge (bam 225 though)..

    You should of p.m Sam Bryant ! I think downpipe and Decat from his guys are about £240 delivered to your door.
    When I ordered through him I paid on the sunday , Tuesday morning knock at the door BOOM it was here ! Quicker delivery from USA than uk eBay sellers!

    was going to order it mate..til i rang a few garages and they said it would cost me £250+ as its not an easy job to remove and fit so iv decided to leave the downpipe and sports cat for now as iv already spent around £550 lol a grand on mods in 1 month is a bit too much to spend in 1 go lol
