    I don't know of a ko4 downpipe from turborevs, do you ahve a link?

    Turborevs downpipes are mainly for the ko3/s turbos, and are around £100.

    KO4 downpipes start at £350 from XS power

    A link would be useful and tbh anything that needs 'modifying' to fit is best left alone...

    XS Power 3" DP is the one a lot of peeps have started using here...

    eBay item 380243381253

    It says flange needs modifying, but it does look completely wrong

    Thats not an S3 downpipe and anyone that says different is telling porkies...

    That will fit a K03/K03s turbo'd engine so A3, 180hp TT, Golf mk4, Ibiza, Leon etc... not an S3 or anything else with a transverse K04...

    lying bastards.

    A3/golf downpipe, won't fit an S3 without a whole new flange, and a new bit of pipe welded on so basically a whole custom fitment!

    sorry mate, but it's £350 or stick with standard!

    I had a 3" stainless steel downpipe and 200 cell sport cat custom made and fitted for £500.

    That's another alternative.

    is it worth doing the down pipe or just the decat ? and people on here say a tip is worth doing but do 225bhp ones fit 210bhp ? is there any other better mods to spend my cash on

    Downpipe on an S3 is the restrictive bit... you r choice then to go decat or 200 cell sports cat

    I was staggered when I did my downpipe and adjusted the remapping. Its a different animal in the Mid range now and far more responsive on the throttle. Its certainly better than the cat back in my experience.
