    now then, after a fight with lack of boost and a very sluggish 260 bhp bam engined s3 i finally seem to have sorted it with the aid of a forge cam cover breather hose...i took the ol one off which was squishy, holed and totally thick with ****!

    so now im seeming to enjoy the car and dont really have to spend much on it fixing wise bar a set of injector seals, my question is what is best to buy next? im thinking a cat back miltek or something? maybe a decat first aswel or both!

    what are peoples views on what to do? it already has a pipercross panel filter and stage 1 map!

    I have Miltek CAT back with Miltek Hi Flow Sports CAT and I cannot fault the system.
    Regardless of what people say, I personally thinks it's the best system out there for S3 8L.
    Lovely sound, not chavvy or loud and quiet as a mouse when cruising.
    And definitely a huge improvement on performance over stock system.

    Best mod for the money is a badger 5 3" tip, the miltek wont make half the difference that the tip will.

    had a quick search and found this...although i do already have a forge tip on so would it really make much of a difference over the forge one?

    Haha, its the pipe that runs from the air filter to the turbo, the standard one is very restictive. A b5 tip is by a chap called bill who runs badger 5, search b5 tip and loads comes up mate.

    The Badger5 TIP has made up to 18hp over a std TIP on a mapped car...

    Badger 5 alone makes a big difference, relentless 3" downpipe + decat will improve flow for sure.

    You could sell ur forge tip for around £50 then put the money towards a b5 tip.

    I have to say I was optimistic about the gains a badger5 3" tip would give me, but it does what it says on the tin, I have before and after Rolling road printouts. Easily the most pound for horse mod after a remap mod in my opinion.
