SEAT LEON CUPRA R MK1 FRONT BUMPER SPOILER SPLITTER NEW GENUINE | eBay
all info on this link bud
it was quite long to fit tbh however i did it with a mate both took our time to make sure it was tight and no gaps where left between the splitter and bumper
what grill is that? you planning on getting a black s3 one?
So it has been a while...
Lambos are of the car till shows start up again
Car had been mapped on standard turbo which started to give way as the bearings became loose... but luckly enough time to get a rolling road in...
this should have been about the 180bhp mark but as the turbo was F'd it only got this...
That was november time towards the end of the month i got hold of a ths decat pipe transformed the car completely in terms of noise from what i could notice.
Not long after (couple of days) the turbo blew
Spoke to Tom at Turbo Dynamics and he supplied me with a Stage 2 Hydrid
Stage 2 Hybrid Turbo comprises:
Hi flow GT20 compressor wheel
Re-profiled compressor housing to suit
360 degree thrust bearing
Modified turbine wheel blades to reduce backpressure
Blueprinting of turbo to motorsport standards
Estimated Power Output: Approx 240-260 BHP
i also had it upgraded to billet internals.
car ran alot smoother without any further mapping once it had ran in the oil change done car went for mapping again after alot of adjustment from my mate car is amazing preformance and timing absolute perfect

Can't wait to see them results on the rolling road with that new Stage 2 Hybrid.
How much did the Hybrid turbo cost ya ?

Had any trouble with the popo regarding your running lights mate?
Got mine coded in too recently, not had any trouble yet *toucheswood*
Looking good, are you not experiencing a lot rattle with the new sound system? You have it on top of a flimsy movable spare tyre cover.
sorry for late reply
The audi from what i thought was running amazing however past month or so lots of white smoke on cold start up.
the car went to rolling road and got 193bhp with a stage 2 hybrid so there is a problem just trying to get it sorted as we have estimated it at 220bhp-ish
see dyno sheet below mate
no never mate touch wood
nope not at all this sub is amazing and clean bass and i don't notice any rattle what so ever
here some pictures of it to keep you all up to date
Love it. Very nice ride.

Well the smoking issue is now sorted. Turned out that a3 have head problems! Great way to find out!
Took the car down to yaash motors again the audi second home lol

Head And Turbo Out
Three Cracks On The Head Just Like This
Turbo Bit Oily
So A New Head Was In Order and Thought I May as well Change The Cams
Sent The Turbo Back To Turbo Dynamics To Check The Balancing And Give It A Good Clean
Everything Put Back Together
While the car was also there one thing was missing which was bugging me as it was making the car uneven.
Picked The Car Gave It A Quick Wash And Polish
This is what stopped the car from bugging me.
Upgraded rear brakes to match the fronts and a fresh coat of paint.
Wait for next update something different then the usual black grille
Wicked thread mate cars looks amazing
What front disc's are you running on the front ?
Sorry For Know Updates Lots Of Work Going On! Audi Up For Sale...
Are you not splitting any parts from the car?
nice car. never understood the 'no test drives' statement though. I know a lot of adverts state this but who would buy a car without driving it first?
did you do any intercooler upgrades on this?
Car looks awesome buddy, If I didn't already have an A3 I would definitely buy this one, very well looked after!
Just wondered about the head being cracked and what type of smoking issue you had? Get a bit of smoke on my 170 if I start it up then leave it sitting ticking over, smoke appears to be blue-ish. Doesn't really smoke much when driving unless it's being pushed hard.
Sound anything like it?
Not as of yet mate, would like it to sell as is!
reason being that some people just say they are interested just to have go in it, and if something was to happen then what?
no i have not buddy, i was told standard intercooler is more then sufficient for the current set up, hope this helps!
i had a big cloud of smoke on start up! even when driving slowly! once engine reached temperature it calmed down a "tad"! run some tests to be sure! coolant test is a good place to start!
