    What turbo intake pipe fits for APY engined S3?

    I looked Samco and Forge web sites and they offer pipes only for TT and newer S3´s.

    The 225 TT is the same as the S3, LCR etc.

    Doesn't help him Nervous his is a 210BHP APY engine, I've been wondering this myself, I think your best bet is to ask Samco which one you need or maybe give awesome gti a call or maybe even AmD they can supply them.

    I guess ryanc has one so he may be able to comment on whether it's the same as the ones for the later engines.

    Im sure Its the same TIP on all S3's, LCR's (210/225) as they all use the same turbo and airbox.

    I'd recomend you buy it from RichA3turbo as the service is excellent and he'll guarantee its the right one

    There are different inlet pipes.
    One type for cars with EXP, and one for cars without.

    Its to do with the location of the PCV valve as far as I know.

    I have an APR one which I have yet to fit to my APY S3, so can't confirm it fits, the hoses all seem to line up though.

    The n75 valve was on the other side on mine to the samco hose and they don't make one for early cars.A few years ago a did a write up of how to fit one to a early car if you search.To be honest the early standard hoses were strengthened so you don't need to swap it,still have a modified standard item with 360bhp.

    Samco is available at Jondel Motorsport, but they take ages to get hold of as Samco only build to order now, and most dealers cant get the hoses.
