    things changed from dynos:

    bigger wmi jet from 225ml/min to 375ml/min
    moved vac lines
    repaired leaking pipes
    serviced dv
    removed catch exit from TIP

    the figures are on the wheels not fly and im very happy with it broke the 200wkw mark which was my goal from start of k04 so very happy about that

    lol I know the feeling. I always end up work on my mates cars at my place
    and never get around to doing work on my own car

    got a question to ask ive done a few things to my car.
    done revo map. 76mm down pipe with a 63mm one box system. a eibrach 40mm drop
    customed my front bumper. blacked out the back of my head lights. done hidkit
    smoked my rear lights. fitted a auto gauge boost gauge. done EGR bypass.
    cold air intake to my air box with K&n filter. fitted 17" audi tt phatboy rims. and a little sound system.

    now ive saved a few bucks and cant decide wat to do first, fit coilovers or full motorcade intercooler upgrade with boost pipes.
    like to know wat u guys think?

    Hey dude!

    No G6 cooler won't work completely different concept of design hey. You can't really get a off the shelf cooler setup for the S3 unless you get a welly or forge setup but then you looking at like 15 to 20k.

    I'm going to be getting a S3 this month to do cooler setup on it, if you want I can make 2 of them then just post it to you and you will just need to fit it?

    so after going through 2 belts and 2 tensioners in a week thought something might be up!

    Wikus at goldwagen delarey checked my alternator and saw that the OAP or something like that was actually seized tight on my alternator. So he helped me with a new one and fitting it

    alt out and all the acc around it off.
