    Hey guys,
    While fitting my new forge DV I found a split in the original turbo intake pipe where the DV is fitted.
    I've bodged a fix for now but it has made up my mind to go for a silicone one (just for the looks really).
    However, I don't know what the engine codes mean i.e. BAM / APX / AMK etc. - Can anyone help me out with an explanation? And possibly even suggest the right part i am looking for?
    It is a pre-facelift S3 200 V reg for info.

    S3 on 2000 V reg is most likely going to be engine code APY, there isn't a direct replacement for the TIP on your car I'm afraid.
