    Alright, just got my first Audi a 2002 S3 it has 80 000 on the clock and is totally standard. Just checked it over fully and shes perfect. Basically im looking for a starting point, i want her up to 300bhp but with an increase in torque too just looking for a bit of advice on a decent starting point and money it will cost.Hopefully the longer i have it the more i can start to help people out on here too. Many thanks

    300bhp... hybrid turbo exhaust remap? possibly a FMIC?

    Personally save your money for a BT ;)

    Yeh best saving the pennies and going BT route. Standard k04 certainly wont see 300bhp.

    I also currently have a standard car. I'm not going to be looking for 300bhp+, so this is the route i'm thinking of taking to about 280bhp(?).

    1. Stage One Custom Code Remap, Green Cotton Panel Filter, Forge 007p Diverter Valve.
    2. 25/30mm lowered on KW springs & shocks, Adjustable Rear Tie-Bars, 10mm front spacers & 15mm rear spacers.
    3. 3" Down Pipe and Sport Cat, Custom Exhaust, Silicone TIP.
    4. Uprated Discs & Pads.
    5. Stage Two Custom Code Remap.

    Would anyone do this differently?:greyrs4:

    Yeh fmic and dp are the important bits for stage 2 apparently. I'd say good for maybe 270bhp. 280bhp is a real push.

    As long as you've got your torque, I'd be looking for 300lbs.

    A £350 remap will get you to 260ish bhp straight away. The next 40bhp will cost a fair bit though!

    Hybrid is a cheaper route. Can't help thinking BT power delivery will be alot different too??

    It is.. later spool, less spikey but better/more power delivery through the rev range and the right turbo will still produce to the redline unlike a K04 (hybrid or otherwise) that will run out of puff long before.

    Best comparison I can think of is a K04 will feel like an initial shove then quickly settle where a BT will just pull and pull and pull until you run out of revs, gears or road... ;P

    Looks spot on.

    Though I'd do the remap, Silicon TIP, brakes and spacers first then the suspension mods, then move onto the DP/cat and stage 2 last when you're bored of stage one power!

    nothing will replace the feeling of a stage 1 remap IMO.... the extra power from then on will be met with a bit of disappointment with the shed load of cash you'll have spent :)

    to be objective ;)
