    Awesome work Andrew. Looking forward to seeing some more pics and possibly a video :icon_thumright:.

    Think you may have the quickest S3 on here once all the BT guys have finished their projects.

    Thank you more pictures and videos to follow

    I hope to be one of the fastest S3's out there the only problem's i have now is i have standard brakes ( need to get ) standard shocks and springs ( got coilovers but not fitted yet ) and standard clutch ( Its only done 3k and will only last another 3k with this power ) I hope to get a new one from badger later on

    Andrew, I'm just curious, would you keep your Water meth tank that side if doing it again and what made you decide to mount it as it is?

    Very little room for WMI tanks sadly... usually peeps ditch the spare in favour of electric pump and puncture repair jollop then fit the pump and tank in the wheel well at the back... have fitted these on the side panels too..

    Only real way to get it out of the way is a custom alloy tank in the wheel well which is what I will be doing... eventually lol...

    I will be running a smallish devils own tank initially though..

    Looking really good Andrew.

    What intercooler setup are you running for the 500+hp?

    Also what and where did you get the crackle black paint from, looks awesome.

    I know the feeling, i had a K04'd S4 that i had plowed money into and when they do on the dyno your usually the only one looking away, was the same with my Evo 8 as we all know how fragile they are and i couldnt watch....

    To be honest i just have a feeling that its not going to make as much power i think it will

    I know it sounds stupid but the engine doesn't have a massive engine spec, just a 2.1 ( inc rods and pistons ), Ported head with valves and springs, GTX3076r with External gate, 870cc injectors, twin fuel pumps, standard cams, steel flywheel, R32 T/B and a big intercooler with WMI?

    My old car had a engine spec as long as my arm and everything been modified for more power and reliability in mind.

    Anyway i will start the boost off at 24 psi and then take it up to 30 or 35 psi?

    i think your spec is good..
    be interesting to see if the spec of the gtx3076 is in line with what the older gt35r ran.. as i know what that was like..
    >530kw @ wheels and max'd the dyno I was using at the time - dyno retarder was literally smoking trying to hold it

    It would be nice to see 500 but anything over 400 would be good also

    It would be rude not to do the rear brakes now i have 350mm with six pots on the front and now 330mm rears with standard calipers on the rear, I was thinking about four pots on the rear but i couldn't justify the price of them anyway.. Enjoy.

    Yes 330mm rears

    Compbrakes again, still got to fit the coilovers i have and a R32 rear ARB

    Not 100% sure when mapping is as i want to get all the brakes sorted and make sure the engine will be really as in fitting the bigger maf and other little things

    Swapped the springs in the external wastegate from the 24 psi that was in it to a 10 psi springs Badger Bill suggested, rigged up the MBC with the N75 valve now plumbed in

    Yes Paul Murray will be mapping it seeing they are only down the road from me

    Only down side to these discs are the cap head bolts and crush nuts

    Some have been crushed to much and they end up stripping the thread of the cap head so i need to get six more for the weekend
