    I think the whole reason he ripped out the 1.8T lump was due to some sort of failure.

    I don't know how I missed this thread, but a big thank you as you have shown me what to do with my S3 now and that's been quite the dilemma for me for the past few months (1.8T's hate me too) so it's good to now have a direction to head in.

    Your S32 sounds spot on and the install does indeed look factory.

    Appreciate the compliment mate, the sound is much nicer now, the car went to Custom Code HQ in Chesterfield (JBS) for the map to be finalised/tweeked;) this has resulted the exhaust having a much deeper note with a bassy pop on every gear change.

    I'll done another video at some point!

    lol I ended up buying a Mk4 1.8t that had been converted to 2wd R32 as my daily whilst I was waiting to get my S3 repaired so now I am thinking to sell the engine and turbo I bought for it and get the lump from the mk4 put into the S3 instead.

    Looking at Sandips car makes me want this more and more :)

    Though out of curiosity how much is he looking at for the engine, ecu and looms?

    PSI have not given me the photographs yet, asked them countless times but they're having issues with their computer unfortunately, plus i've collected all my old part and they've kept the AEB head so i'll have to go back for it :faint:

    audi 1.jpg audi 2.jpg

    Recently got a B5 TQS as my daily and i'm tempted (again) to sell the S32 and do some bits to the A4

    What i would do if i did sell the S32

    K300 Beach Buggy Turbo including BB TIP
    3" Downpipe/decat (already has a Milltek catback)
    FMIC
    Rods
    Coilovers
    possibly put my 19" speedlines on

    I either keep the S32 for shows and keep the A4 as it is or sell the S32 and make the A4 into a fast saloon thats a daily but a bit showy :meeting:

    Keep the S32 Sandip, it's quite a unique machine in the UK, why would you want to sell it? No one will pay what you want for it anyways! :moa:
