    Hi all

    Have seen a A3 Quattro 1.8 T 180 BHP that im interested in.

    Its already had a Jabba re-map, s/s exhaust, filter, and diverter valve?! and it at 211 BHP

    So I just wandered if I bought this and wanted to go further with the mods, what would you recomend as the next stage and what kind costs are you looking at.

    Its a 2001 Y plate, not sure if they had different turbos like the Golfs.

    Thanks in advance for any info

    Cheers

    Dave

    180bhp is the k03s. Turbos exactly the same as the golfs.

    Quickest, easiest most effective route would be to swap the turbo.

    Consider jabba or jbs IHI or garrett.
    Eliminator kits are okay, but a little floored and messy.

    in this order, N75 valve (with potential to add teh Audiworld tech valve mod to the wastegate line),FMIC, followed by change of turbo and custom Map.

    Turbo options are numerous, you might be lucky and find a Jabba IHI kit for sale, (manifold, injectors and VF34 IHi turbo, good for 300+bhp)
    Otherwise you can do a garrett swap.

    look on the VWVortex site under the technical section and the 1.8t forum......you won;t be short of ides.

    how much do you want to spend?
