    Sounds right to me, S3 has Ko4 and so you should see up to 265? Do you already have a fmic? That price is quite tempting wish I had got a ko4 b4 getting my 1.8TQ mapped, will be money down the drain :S Mines only 200bhp could do with a bit more really, but then I dunno if its worth pumping cash into it or just buy another car!

    To clarify, any kit for an A4/Passat/A6 won't fit as they are longitudinally mounted engines. You need a transverse kit for it to fit an A3 (which would be the same for a TT, Leon, Toledo, Golf, Bora, Octavia etc.

    Consider one of the K03/K04 hybrids. These use the k04 shaft and wheels from the larger turbo placed into a re-machined k03s body. Effectively a bolt on mod achieving S3 k04 power figures. There are a few companies offering them now.

    Just to add, get a kinetic motorsports large port exhaust manifold from the states. The k03/k03s manifold is kind of small.
