    I have a 51 plate S3 (AMK) which has an APR remap, which I`m very happy with.. But I just want alittle more.. What would people suggest for the next performance mod.. I`ve been offered a Miltek Exhaust at a good price..

    There's very little that will add performance beyond a remap as you're getting near the limit of the K04 turbo. Next step is to replace the turbo with a bigger item - big bucks.

    Although it'd be a good idea to look at the chassis, brakes, etc.

    I would recommend a milltek cat-back if you can get one cheap, they look better and give that extra bit of exhaust noise, sounds spot on now

    Then I went for some Brembo 4-Pots, they make such a difference, give so much more confidence

    Anyone heard about these equal length manifolds? JBS reckon it can free up the K04 somewhere in the region of 300bhp.
    Have a look & tell me your thoughts. Will it work? £650 seems a little steep for them but cheaper than the big turbo route.
    They have developed them for the LCR and there are a few reviews on Seat Forums.

    Who have you booked it in with and when? I'm looking to get one soon along with Brembo's. The ATP manifolds are a lot cheaper however there seem to have a few returned as they crack and basically not fit for purpose.

    Hi Jojo

    The car has been @ Hawards Heath for the last few months

    Ive uprated the front brakes and now running Movits they are very very good.

    Seems like a decent thing, but the compressor maps from a K04 show you can't get anymore than about 285bhp out of it....

    i would like to see the results from a K04 turbo, not one of these hybrid turbos

    Seems like JBS are claiming that the graphs are for a standard K04, not a hybrid. I have my doubts.

    Am I right in thinking Dahlback make a (racing) manifold? How would this compare in terms of cost and performance?
