    It says for inline motors only. Surely that means the way the engine is placed under the bonnet. Maybe fit A4 & A6 - not sure about S3. Correct me if I'm wrong

    Maybe it means inline as in all ports at the same side?

    Unlike the scooby "boxer" engine???

    I thought inline was the cylinder configuration? Straight six? As opposed to the Vee?

    looks like the 1.8t non qauttro like in a3 1.8t
    also tubular manifolds are known to crack so you would def want a warranty from oz this could be difficult. I know its expensive but i would go with the jbs equal length

    Come on lads...
    That's not going to fit. The S3s engine is the wrong way in the engine bay for starters...

    And has anyone actually looked to see how much space you've got from the engine to the bulkhead? Not enough to fit that, for sure!

    As I said, it is K04 but it says inline, which is A4 series, the engine is the other way round in the bay. It wont fit.

    Look on US eBay, there is a lot of similar products that are for the S3 series..
