    Afternoon all


    Not long had my S3 but have had new clutch done and Cambbelt is being done in the next few weeks. Car is standard other than a K+N panel filter, was wondering if I need to upgrade anything else etc for a stage 1 map?!?


    Also which n where are the best places to get this map done?! Not sure wether to get a map which you can take off if needed either, all ideas/opinions welcomed


    Cheers

    Badger 5 TIP would be nice! And a catch can/ PCV delete. Also make sure there's no boost leaks! And get a good stage1 map from a reputable tuner!

    Change your Diverter Valve to a Forge one.

    for a map its really got to be r tech or badger what ever is closest, id say give it a good service plugs, oil etc, check for leaks, pcv and n249 are easily done (look in stickies), a new tip badger 5 as said or a oversized sfs standard dv should be ok but if you do want to up grade go for a forge again look in stickies

    yeah should do fine, if im correct in thinking that the forge ones are not that amazing unless you get a new one as they have been revised? could be majorly wrong

    Shaun when your at least ten year old standard DV goes pop just get Joe and Tim to sort it :haha:
    For the sake of a £100 I would change it.

    Aye Jase, Bill also tested a whole load of aftermarket DVs, and most of them leaked! There's vids on fb.
