    Hi all me again.
    I fancy doing the sai and etc delete on my a3 1.8t aum engine. What I was wondering is where is best to get all the bits I need as I will be doing that and a front mounted intercooler all at the same time.
    Many thanks for any help given

    Phone Niki at R-Tech, he can send you out a pack with the blanking plate and a nicely packaged resistor which probably won't be necessary.

    Tell him Jardo sent you.

    [rant]Almost 50% more expensive and doesn't include a resistor.

    I refuse to pay Mr Forge's mortgage, their prices for things things like that which cost pence to make is laughable. Whilst they might sponsor a **** load of motorsport and seem charitable on the face of it we as a consumer are more than subsidising that in the over inflated cost of everything they sell.

    They don't even do club discounts anymore, for any of the sites I frequent. [/rant]

    Lmao chill out dude and grab a beer :beerchug:
    I was just giving the OP an alternative as some of us are brand whores :whistle2:

    True though, it's over priced but a resistor shouldn't be needed. I don't think I have one on mine and Bill disconnected it; didn't have time to fully take the system out on the day.

    Rang them and ordered one good times. Where is the best place to get the resistors?

    You probably won't need one. But Maplins sell them.

    Hi mate I did this not so long ago and it's really easy to do following the how too's , if your never going to refit sai then if you bend the bracket back & forth with big grips it will snap then the pump just drop out , then removing the bracket is easy. Plus marlin do do the resistor recommended in the guide you will have to get a slightly larger resistance one or order it .

    Yup, easy peasy, except for getting the SAI pump out :(
