    Hi Guys,

    I am searching for new injects and a fuel pump for my s3 and turbo upgrade.
    Need bigger injectors and another fuel pomp.
    Which one should I get and where can i find them.
    I have contact awesome-gti twice but no reactions. They have a fuel pump of APR but it's says not for 4wd, what I think is strange.

    I am also going for a milltek catback reson because i am looking for the most quit exhaust. DP en cat are custom made by my tuner.

    So please give me any advse with the injectors and fuel pump.

    thanks

    thanks a lot for the links, just what i needed. hopefully they ship to holland.
    The rods that are on the side. do you recommend them and is this the only internal part that needs to be upgraded, because the other parts are forged and as far as \I know only the rods are not forged and the weakest part. How difficult is it to instal these rods.

    The fuel pump, is it compatabe with the S3 so no big mods needed to instal. plug & play or some small changes needed?

    Thanks a lot for your help

    Same rods as I have in mine... tips on installation for rods, fuel pump etc can be seen in my build thread as these are the same components I have used on my car...

    Rods require head removal etc to fit, fuel pump is an inline one and details of a way to install it is in my thread.

    If you have any probs trying to get the parts shipped to holland, try dropping Badger Bill a pm (http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/member.php?4263-badger5) as he is a UK dealer for Integrated Engineering and may be able to help.

    If you get an additional in-line fuel pump like a Bosch 044 or equivalent, it can be located where the existing fuel filter is and combined with the adaptor fittings I have, makes for a neat simple install. Relocate filter up front and swapping it for a smaller ibiza cupra one makes it a simple/neat install

    regards

    I really need a fuel pump that is plug & play but can go up to 380 bhp. I still have to figure out which turbo I want. Garret GT2871 or something like a GT30.
    The Bosch 044 is able to produce 380 bhp? i reallt want to buy everything in one place to reduce shippijg costs

    In holland you have 2 good tuners for VAG: JD Engineering and Hartog tuning. They are the best.

    There is nothing plug and play about going big turbo.... LOL

    The fuel pump setup I have (using Bill's fuel pump ends) is as plug and play as it gets but you will still have to wire it from the OEM pump and relocate the fuel filter...

    For the difference in cost, GT30 is the better bet... can run lower boost pressure to get same power a GT2871 would do flat out...

    Bosch 044 is more than capable of fuelling 380bhp

    I know big tubo is not plug & play:D
    I am going to do some thing by myself and the real upgrade by my tuner, so i hoped the fuel pump would be easy becausei have 2 left hands.

    Looking at the price the tuner gave me I thhink I will let him do this so I'll ask him what stuf I can buy myself so he can instal it. he is not a fan of installing own bought stuff, because of warranty etc.

    I think it will be a gt30 just of what you are saying and the price difference isn't that big. Rest will be custom(maniforl, dp, cat and catbacck is milltek)

    044 will run way more than you are asking about.
    Jerone Dik is a good guy, does some excellent work.

    Injectors are taller, spacers are needed to space the fuel rail properly.... you only need 2
