    Hey
    Just got back from my monster trip to jbs in chesterfield.
    www.jbsautodesigns.co.uk
    They have totaly transformed the car into some sort of wild animal. I think its quick enough for me now despite having a job that invoves alot of speed.
    They Revo'd it, fitted brembo 4 pots, samco turbo inlet hose and a forge Dv.
    Its sounds great now and the turbo whoosh turns into almost like a scream when you floor her in 2nd or 3rd, its insane, the four pots cant be faulted in my naieve opinion. i have not felt fade yet,
    the dv makes a nice little whoosh when you lift off with boost, i have upset a few cars on the way back with her but wont say what they are incase it turns into whats quicker debate.
    thanks to jbs for great customer service and professional expertise. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/MexWave.gif

    Nice one mate... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif

    They all made a huge difference to the S3 when i did them seperatly, but to do them all at once.....it must feel like a different car..

    So, whats next?

    Congrats Ian, this is exactly what I would like done to my car, however holding back a while until the warranty expires (and I'm getting married soon, doh!)

    Very interested in how much this costs and how long it took? It's well worth travelling for (by the sound of it) if these guys do a good job and from what people on here have said they certainly do.

    Nice one, you wont have any fade with those Brembos I'm sure and what a transformation a remap makes. S3 is a boring drive when its in standard trim by comparison!

    What does it do?

    Its more what it doesn't do! The standard Turbo Intake Pipe is prone to colapsing at high revs in high gears on chipped cars.
     
  11. AhHHhhhhhH!!!!

    So would that cause a slightly different "sucking" noise on boost and cause reduced power at 5,500rpm upwards???

    Yeah, possibly! Earlier cars are worse IIRC but it does still occur on the newer cars too!
