    hi there
    all depends on what you want to spend mate
    I have a toyosports and cant fault it
    comes with all the pipe work and all you need to do is fab some brackets which again is pretty simple

    Your right, there is A LOT of information out there, can be hard to get your head around it all...

    here's what I used:
    [​IMG]

    So just to break down:
    1 x ebay cooler (2.5"/63mm depth and outlets)
    5 x 90 silicone bends
    2 x 90 ally bends
    1 x 45 ally bend
    1 x 45 silicon bend
    1 x reducer coming off the turbo (think it's 2.25" - 2.5")
    3 x alloy couplers
    1 x alloy t-piece (for the DV take) and some way of plumbing in the DV
    1 x silicone IC to TB hose (the 2.5" pipe work wont fit in the standard one)

    Or some sort of combination of the above depending on how you decide to do it, there are of course other ways!.. You'll also need something to plumb the N75 into, I used a brass connector that I tapped into the DV take and then sealed with chemical metal.

    If your engine is AUM (which it should be) you will also need to include a map sensor pipe in there some where. Unfortunately forge appear to be the only people to do them so look forward to getting your wallet out for that!

    Think that's about it bud, more pictures of mine on page 3 of my "build" thread:
    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-...-frenchmans-a3-daily-track-all-rounder-3.html

    I didn't want to loose my fogs so removed the air-con condenser so I could sit it back a bit. If you don't do that your likely to loose fogs and have to trim the crash bar but will save you a fair bit of hassle I'd imagine.

    Hope that helps mate, let us know how you get on... Good luck! :thumbsup:

    got everything on ebay from MrSilicon & APMotorStore (actually the same company). . . I'm assuming the kit you have uses unbeaded pipe ends, is this what your concerned about?

    If so it is possible to make a pipe-beader out of an old mole wrench and a exhaust clamp... Would save you a few pennies if you have access to a welder! Link below:
