I have been pretty harsh with my S3 lately, heres how it goes: A friend of mine has a RS6 (stock) we did a head on head & i got ahead by around 2 car lengths and maintained it. Then i did a test to see if he can outrun me on a straight but no luck there either i maintained the gap all the way upto 100mph. I was chuffed!! Evo's, Subaru Impreza's get beat if not i give them a very very good race! Recently bumped into a chap with a Celica GT4 running a GT28RS 71. He had 325bhp/300ft lb torque. Did a run from 10mph, i got ahead around 4 car lengths until he started creeping and edging passed, by then i was at around 80mph. So laggy... Same with a mates sapphire cossie 4x4 (approx 300bhp), eventually gets ahead but by then in excess speed. No turbo upgrade for me, me thinks!! Unless i can get it setup up so i dont have lag. Im running 3" dp, 2.5" into 2.25" exhaust system, no cats, 4bar fuel reg, BMC airbox... Just awaiting to fit my FMIC then map a REVO stage II & then do a Rolling Road test... Hoping for some good results, got shed loads more torque since i had my AmD!!
