Bring on the GTX3076r 2076cc S3
nice indeed, when is that going on?
April i hope as i will have a bit of time off then
wicked your cars guna fly
I hope so.
The turbo seamed to of missed customs so i didn't have to pay extra tax on it thank god, but whats to say they could send me a letter asking for payment?
Great Andrew,this could be gearing up to be the Fastest 1.8t derived s3 in the uk????....ya need to come down and show your wares when this is done..
Will do Dave
Only problem is i need to sort out my breaks and i need something better!
that comp wheels got a lot of blades!

Your right, that is sexy.
If it was delivered by ANC or someone other than Parcel Farce then I would expect it will be in the post... in previous experiences I have had customs notices 3 months after receiving the goods!!
i hope it wasnt delivered by TNT and it blows up.
You cars very "low key" on this forum but your cars specs is very nice and once up and running it will be the quickest on here lol. Was going to say quickest 1.8T but its not isi lol
When you looking to have it all setup.
probably due to not being taken apart every 5 mins lol ohhh and a 25+ thread hehehee
Lol think andrews been watching everyones mistakes so he knows what works and doesnt work. Fair play to the other guys who has build thread though as they have had to learn first hand what works well and not so well.
i think he's doing alot of new things with his aswell though so hats off to him for the work he does it all looks top class to me as for welly and tufty there the guine pigs for what most on here will end up doing/want to do so i have alot of respect for those two aswell
Ye I dont know anyone else with a bored our block and ported head on here + his turbo now. Comeeeee onnnnn get that turbo ;-)
We should have a like button so we could like this post!!! I can't wait to see this puppy in action!
your is going to be fun to watch on a dyno!!
Tufftybloke Vs Andrew @A.L.D > Santapod Raceway
very nice indeed. Tissue please
I have made my mistakes during the build, when the 2.1 was built i did very little miles in and then it over heated one day when i was away from the car and found out it fried the pistons rings and big ends due to boiling the oil, It was ripped out and rebuilt with total seal gapless rings.
2nd mistake was thinking a hybrid would work well on a 2.1, the bloody thing runs out of poof very early.
3rd VXR injectors!! saw Wellys thread and sold soon after
4th mistake was thinking 630cc would work fine with a hybrid, then buying 440cc ones then changing my mine about the turbo
from there i did my research and watched other on here and other sites. I saw tuffty was getting boost creep with the internal gate so i though i better go external gate, next was the turbo I wanted a GT for sure and i spent a lot of time looking at what turbo would be best for me. I would like to see 500bhp at some point so looked at the GT3076r but as soon as i was going to get one then this baby caught my eye.
Really looking forward to this Andrew, keep up the good work.
And by good work I mean buying bits
+1 to that!
I must stress i am and will still be using a small port head so lets see what i can do?
2067cc + 0.63 A/R hotside GTX3076r + Small port head = high torque i hope, If not the what the hell it will be fun.
GTI is what I am aiming for atm... might be a bit of a one horse race given Andrews spec.. mines still a lowly 1.8 remember...
Be interesting to see the results of this tbh as I haven't built mine for ultimate power (despite Bill's best efforts to persuade me otherwise lol...)
Its a brave engine spec Andrew has taken on and hats off to you fella....
tuffty's just been modest, this sounds like cold war ptII
Don't forget people set up of the car as mine still needs a lot of work in that area !!
Mine will be mapped my RS Tuning in Leeds, not sure how they are with custom mapping Badger is a real 1.8 20v Turbo mapper petrol head and engineer so i would say Tuffty's would be ahead of me on the 1/4.
I respect Badger and Tuffty because of there knowledge of these engines and managements of the S3's
I only came into the VAG world a few years ago and still leaning as Badger+Tuffty will tell you with the amount of PM's i've sent them.
Paul at RS knows his stuff, certainly with the TDi's anyway! Always gets the best figures (and times)!
65lb comp wheel is like my gt35...
your motor is going to shift if you unleash it.
630cc injectors will not be sufficient for it nor close.. unless you just run it on v.low pressure, and whats the point in that?
i ran 830cc @4bar on my gt35 on standalone and ran out of fueling ....... hence 8 injectors.. and 3 fuel pumps, -8 fuel line, -6 return, 3ltr swirl pot etc etc yada yada.
when its going to be running then? are we there yet? are we there yet?
Thumbs up for Paul Murray at RS tuning. he mapped my mk2 20vt and hes done loads of big turbo 20vts. He knows 20vts inside out!
And he`l be doing my GT30` S3!
Thanks Bill i was worried about the fueling and was looking at bigger injectors
Hope to fit the turbo in April time
What size injectors would you say i should use?
870cc or bigger?
bsfc calc will size your injectors..
