    Hi All

    I have the Miltek Turbo Back for the car, it is also booked in for an ITG on the 1st September at Awesome GTI, however, I need to get it to a REVO dealer for Stage2+ and ideally the same dealer does the HPFP, so has anyone any recommendations for a good dealer near Macclesfield/Stockport/Manchester, as need to get this booked in ASAP really???

    Also where is the best place to get a HPFP, and how much should I be paying??

    Any help greatly appreciated:icon_thumright:

    Cheers

    Don't know any REVO dealers but Stattler in Sheffield does GIAC and he does Autotech HPFPs AND hes a top guy.

    Also I'd advise to put some dough aside for a new clutch in a few months too!

    Yeah, I've heard they are good, however, want to go down the Revo route really! And yes, have heard the clutches take a bashing, quite an expensive affair on a DSG i'd have thought too! Better get saving!

    ohh overlooked the fact you have DSG well if thats the case then yours can handle 400lb ft and standing starts no problem apparently .

    well evidence from most forums seems to suggest around 330-350 will almost certainly start to cause very accelerated wear eventually leading to slip , much over that your clutch will slip within a few thousands miles. All dependant on driving style and mileage though also obviously.

    Mines only about 280-290 torque maybe but at 60 k miles and only recently hard driving its starting to slip.

    I'm going for a custom organic clutch as you can see.

    With standard power in the s3 the clutch is known to slip.

    Once remapped it is just a ticking clock until the clutch starts to slip.

    LUK flywheel from buypartsby.com or co.uk is around £250 delivered (compared to audis £500 and euro's £310)

    SACHS clutch is £500

    I got my pump from statler in sheffield.

    I got my REVO done at Votex in Congleton is the best place near you, Mike is a sound chap. They also fitted my uprated clutch. They will also be able to get your pump fitted.

    Lee, thought you had booked in with Ben at AVP, whats changed ?

    My clutch never died on my last 2 x S3 both running either GIAC extreme or stage 2 +, admittedly only for around 10,000 each. Really missing my S3 - this sensible **** is so dull, sorry Guys but the 2.0 tdi is pretty poor in comparison to the equivalent offering from BMW, really underwhelemed and thats after Revo ! Perhaps I'm just a petrol head destined to spend a fortune on fuel :)

    Hi Martin, hope you're well?

    I have just agreed now with Ben at AVP, there was some confusion over pricing but we have sorted it now. So, it is going to him on the 2nd September for the day to have:

    The Miltek Turbo Back fitted
    REVO Stage 2+
    HPFP
    Evoms CAI
    Forge Re-circ valve

    So should go well after that lot!!

    And awesome are doing the springs and spacers on the 1st.

    So I will be hanging around Burton all day on the 2nd, you'll have to recommend some places of interest for me to keep myself entertained!

    Cheers Lee

    There is a multi screen cinema and a decent chinese buffet so the time will pass easily enough, my longest wait to date was a few years ago at AMD when based near Biscester, I had a full suspension set up fitted to my GTi and a Milltek DP, sat there for 5.5 hours, good drive home though :)

    Highly recommend having uprated ARB's fitted at the same time as the springs, it will save labour costs and is a very worth while mod, no loss of ride quality just a massive reduction in understeer, don't forget the 4 wheel alignment after the suspension work, my S3 had all its hardware fitted when it was 3 days old and the alignment was out on mine, worth £50 all day long.

    Hi

    Yeah, they are doing the alignment as part of the works, they said to me its required.

    Good idea on the ARB's, just a bit of a dear doo isn't it, and are they worth it do you think?
