    Just come across this on ebay...linky

    Whats this guy on about??.... Where did he get 400bhp from! He writes as if 400bhp is a common occurance for an s3 to be tuned to.

    Not sure about his grammer either...

    He's not saying it's got 400bhp, he's making the point it hasn't been tuned!

    But yeah, grammar's not too hot...

    I know he's not saying its got 400 bhp!!
    The point i was making is why choose the figure of 400bhp??? How many S3's do you know with that much power....i'm not aware of that many.

    Mines 360 at it's completely max'd out,even the mtm demo was 376.Definetly need rods and valves going for 400bhp and a re-bore with pistons if you want decent response.

    Sorry!! Misread you. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    I've got an old copy of Track & Race Cars with an article about 1.8T tuning. They say a Sportec double injection system with 8 injectors, engine bored out to 2L, big turbo, new manifolds, big throttle body, strengthened crank, rods, rod bearings, forged pistons, new cams, ported inlets and various other bits and bobs will see 460bhp and 383lb ft. All for the bargain price of £32,575 fitted!!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Back to the original point, I think the seller is just plucking figures from thin air. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Take a look at the RS6 tuning at AMD...For slightly less (about £29,000) it will take an Rs6 up 600BHP!!!

    To be honest I don't even believe the car exists, lool. Honestly some of these guys are soo shifty and complet fakes. I nearly gave £700 to some Twat who wanted to sell me a "brand new Milltek sport cat" on ebay, turns out though he doesn't have Jack, so watch where u put your money. I was lucky
