    After months of research,humming n harrin I've now finally made my mind up !!!
    At gti inters this year met a great dude called pat (tent neighbour) and was very impressed with his car. He also had a black S3 and had just got it back from an epic engine build (big turbo,rods pistons,stroker kit etc etc), it was the neatness and attention to detail that really made it something special(check out his front bumper/intercooler TIDY) was built by andy bower at Lincoln VW specialist . it was inspirational and it made me want to take the plunge and go big turbo!!
    As many of you know Im running a progressive nos kit, and was very happy with the outcome as I jumped from 280 bhp to around 330/340 bhp :)
    I was now thinking how great it would be if I had nos and a big turbo !!!!!

    Then out of the blue I gotta call from the guy who fitted my nos asking if I wanted to buy a load of S3 parts for cheap, so I went and had a nose at what he had. It turned out he had a S3 8p engine,gearbox,suspension,rear diff,prop shaft,doors,boot lid the list goes on and on after some haggling I stole the lot for a grand as the didn't really know what they had and didn't really care as they're into yank V8s ( result ).
    So the idea was to bolt this into my 8l, but after some research I had heard that unless you use an Audi ecu it would be problematic and the fact I didn't have an engine loom put me off that idea. So I started to sell some of these parts to fund a rebuild on my engine?
    After selling the turbo, injectors,doors,boot lid I had broke even :)
    But had a long way to go still as I wanted to go to the lengths that pat had.
    So it was just a case of doing some fairly easy research and finding someone to do my build, then just the other week I found out that a company called Qpeng now make a plug n play loom and ecu for a 2.0 tfsi 8L conversion (happy days)
    So it was back to the drawing board ato find out exactly what I need
    -engine
    -gt30
    -rs4 injectors
    -rs4 FRV
    -Qpeng loom ecu
    -fmic
    -exhaust
    -rods n pistons
    Blah blah blah

    Now I know of an 8P S3 running a gt30 with 450 bhp at 0.7 bar :) imagine that with a 50 or 75 bhp shot of nos too
    I was going to get my mate to build this for me as I was let down by a guy who was too busy to take this on but it turns out he was far too busy to take this on.
    After thinking bout who else I could get to do this I got hold of pat who put me onto Andy bower at lincoln volkswagen specialist.
    After a totally upbeat an confident conversation with and I was sold on the idea of these guys building my car for me!

    I'm aiming to get the car to him for around the end of feb.
    In the mean time im gonna usemy dad in the states to order all the parts and post them as presents :)

    If anyone has any help or advice pls feel free to post

    Watch this space guys


    I'm reall

    Always wondered if anyone had dropped the 8P S3 engine in to an 8L S3. Will be keeping my eye on this.

    From what I've been told if you run a gt30 on this engine you need to use larger injectors ?

    Sounds good, good luck.

    Why don't you just increase the capacity of your 1.8 engine to a 2. 0 or 2.1 ? Tried and tested. The TFSi is a newer engine design but its still only 2 litres.

    If you want an engine transplant then shoe horning an S4 V6 would be better overall IMHO

    The s4 lump does sound good but I haven't got one?
    And as far as making my existing engine a 2.1 is a good idea but it's been done lots and I want something a lil bit different, and the 2.0 tfsi is an ace engine
    So it all makes perfect sense to me

    That car will be mad.

    Do you have a performance haldex or are you gonna use one?

    Are you gonna increase capacity of the 2.0TFSI at all?

    I won't be increasing capacity want to keep the block fairly untouched apart from uprated pistons and rods
    I've seen an 8p running 450 bhp on a gt30 at 0.7 bar, quite easily too
    Performance haldex is on the cards
