    WTF jamie it wasnt a straight shoot at andy car when he's down or he's wrong or used the wrong guys if you read my appology i think its the best s3 out there , buts its what i was thinking generally about highly tuned small engines that's why i typed it that's what ive always thought .....

    next time i wont bother i dont see the problem with saying what i did , some people put me right saying why engine's can be tuned and why i was wrong and i held my hand's up not because i thought i was wrong because i dont want to upset the apple cart now do i hurting feeling's and that .....

    it's how i learn what if the question was never said how am i gona learn because you s3 guys in terms of tuning or experience are way ahead of us lower down the chain if we dont say these things or ask these things how do we learn ....or i should i say i learn ...

    i dont see why you guy's have to get so fecking upity you have nice tuned or some highly tuned s3's that piss on my sportback if i was in your shoe's i wouldnt give a shyte laugh at the comment from the sportback and just put the guy straight in a nice way and teach the guy something if he continued to be a tit then maybe get a bit peed off i wouldnt get all upity about it and turn it into a lynching from one remark ....

    Nice...the thing is, some of the well respected members on here never bothered answering posts, PMs or any other indirect question someone asks if they have nothing to show off. Don't start separating the noble members from the others. Everyone is here saying what they say because THEY WANT TO. Sitting up there and shitting on forum members is just great on your part.

    Forums exist so people can exchange answers to questions and other information, even if they are stupid.

    Sorry Andy, even I really dislike the rude way in which you have ignored my posts/questions/PM in more than in one occasion, it's sad to hear what happened to your car.

    Andy, out of pure curiosity it may be worth speaking to Andy / Miles at Storm Developments. They were able to source some test bench R36 lumps for their supercharging development ahead of the launch of the R36 cars in the UK.

    Based on that, and it is purely a speculative punt, could they source 2.5T lumps from a TT-RS? Don't know whether it would bond with your other mods, or be a project too far given your situation, but given how much the rebuild is likely to cost might be worth a speculative investigation (wholly dependent on what your long term plans for Stealth Beast are).

    I am sticking with the 2.0 tfsi as we know its a great block just need to strengthen internals due to this little problem.

    As for the 2.5 lump, I may in the not to distant future jack the GF's Merc in for a TT-RS which will be tweaked of course! ;)

    I think it'll be a while before he sorts the car out. He's got other things that he's sorting first. I'm sure he'll post up here as soon as there is any progress.

    ANdy's car unfortunately lunched a piston last year,running stock internals and compression ratio.

    He does till visit here,but hasn't posted any updates on his car in some months.

    Jonnyc's car also holed a piston,and I think the rule is that if you go over 400bhp,whilst the block is tough enough,you DO need to use stronger rods and lower compression pistons.

    No but there's a link on the advert to his website. Which has a full explanation of the accident he had in it. Thought it was strange they linked that!

    The problem was running way too much boost on stock internals,for way too long trying to race that R8 V10,and in the process,a piston gave way very soon after.

    Mine has run similar power,but with conservative boost and timing and has been totally reliable.

    The lesson is that if you're going to attempt long runs at full boost,you really do need to either run sensible settings,or have the internals done.
