My car is the fastest, it went from 100mph - dead in 1 second
10%??? pffft!... I'll fit a bigger turbo... oh... wait
Some fighting talking going on here. The original question was fastest colour S3.
I will be willing to let some of you race me in my silver S3 to find out what its like to loose in a slow red, blue, red, yellow, black S3
The only threat to me is Staceys S3, Tuffty is part of my team being Silver.
Im with the Silver boys here guys!!
I'm pretty sure this is all a bit of light hearted banter....
Although if you are offering to bring out your beast of an S3 to go slaying, I don't mind getting whipped just to see that in action! lol
Happens all the time when I'm out with my mates in there bigger and stupidly powered toys so I'm used to it by now
Oh yer all banter mate
Its having a few tweaks to get more out of it as i sold my GTX3076r Turbo and waiting to install my OD HTA3582r Turbo and 1600cc injectors, down pipe and system and off to get remapped.. Also planned is a standalone Haldex controller to make the most of the 4x4
Do you know of any other 8l S3s that are UK registered with more power than yours Andrew and keeping the 1.8T block? Surely yours has to be one of the highest powered 8ls?
1600cc injectors....crikey....that's what my mates are running on there 720bhp GTR (al be it 6 of them )
When the car is completed are you looking to Santa Pod it/ ADI it up at all?
Does you'd turbo look like this ?
Aaaaaaaaaaavuuuuuuuuuuuuus Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiilverrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! 8)
Yes it does
I want it
Where abouts in Leeds you based?
Don't know of any 8L S3's running more power than mine? if you do know i would like to know myself?
It should be all done my May/June i hope
ADI will be on the cards and maybe Vmax at Bruntingthorpe where loads of people try to break 200 mph
My car looks fast parked up!
you dont its a money pit this thing
im based outskirts over looking the city centre, you ?
Nope, can't say I have to be honest - yours has to be the most mental in the UK! Lol
Wicked- so just in time for show/events season then, bet you can't wait
Yeah a Vmax event would be pretty cool to attend, I was speaking to Craig last year actually as a lot of my mates get invited to Vmax and after a friendly chat he didn't mind if I was to tag along with the big boys so I could Vmax my motor in a safe and legal environment. Think I need to add some more horses under the bonnet before I divulge into that conversation again....
I expect you'll definitely be taking yours off the clock in that standing mile
I would love to race you. Purely just to see what yours is like. I raced a mate in an ihi ibiza in my old stage 2 s3 and the difference was massive. Id imagine you would do to the ihi what he did to me. Crazy.
A V8 Audi R8 find it very hard to keep up with me
I know someone with a V10 R8 and refuses to race me as he said if he looses he would have sell the R8 and get a lambo but his wife would leave him if he did.
This makes me a little damp
They are sexy as f@ck
I would like to think my white s3 is the fastest colour but it isn't although it does LOOK the fastest colour
I love Underground racings work.
Look for some of there 2000bhp Lambos on YouTube
There are several S3's out there with considerably north of 500bhp, but not on the 1.8T block that I know of
Yes i remember that Yellow S3 with a R32 Turbo and the one with the 5 cylinder TTRS engine
has yo be red for me and to think i didnt like the colour when i bought it
has to be jet black just as fast as a jet end ov'e
well the general consensus is "caw that goes like **** off a shovel!"
so im gonna say brown lol!!
Without a doubt, noggy blue isn't it? 8.84 @ 259.36kmh will be hard to beat.
S3 0-400 Tune 2 Race drag tympaki - YouTube
Its the fastest S3
Nogaro Blue get my vote for fastest, obviously.
Papaya Orange gets my vote for sexiest....
If its on this forum and in the UK the fastest colour is Silver
Fastest colour in Grease its Blue
Well impressed with that picture of your turbo intake ^^^^^
Looks like a water jet pump on a SeaCat ferry lol
Its one sexy turbo
Its one of Owen Developments M-Spec HTA GT3582r turbos
HTAâ¢ Compressor Wheels-Lightweight HTAâ¢ billet Aluminium Compressor Wheel with an advanced aerodynamic profile for unrivalled transient response and efficiency
Metal Bearing Cages-The plastic stock cages are replaced with metal for improved longevity to cope with the increased exhaust gas temperature from anti-lag systems and Racing which leads to heat soak and damage
360Â° Core Clamp stainless steel-Originally developed for FIA Formula 2 and now available on M-Spec Turbos, recommended for Motorsport use to damp vibration (TiAL housings only)
Heat Shield-2mm Billet Stainless Steel Heat Shield to replace 0.9mm OEM part, the 2mm shield holds its form and will not distort or foul the turbine wheel
Conical Nut-Improves aerodynamics, air flow and response
Ported Anti-Surge Shroud-Helps prevent surge at high boost/load and improves response at low engine revs while broadening the compressor map (GTX-M turbo covers are also re-machined for enhanced flow)
Anodized Billet Adaptor Ring-Replaces standard cast part for improved durability. Available in red, blue, gun metal and silver
Nothing like blowing your own trumpet haha
I may have the highest power but its not been proven the fastest yet
Im sure you will agree with me that silver is the fastest colour even in Sydney you have the fastest S3
I don't think I hold that crown here. There's a few around but maybe with the new engine. A guy here is building one for drags with a fully built engine and a 6262 on a CTS kit similar to yours. That'll make more power than mine I bet. It's taking ages though like mine...
That one sound interesting
Yeah I think he'll do well. His Golf R got into the 11s with the stock K04 with bolt ons and a minimal interior. For the sake of the thread, his S3 is the nice graphite color
At least it looks good though. Wheels look awesome on it!
I'm just in Rothwell. Seems like there's quite a few Leeds lads in this 8L section.
