    wow guys wot a weeekend ive had. it started like this, on the saturday i was heading down the lads at AMD essex to have my kw v1 coilovers fitted and some new discs n pads.
    As always they done a fantastic job and damn quick too they changed the shocks, discs n pads and done my 4 wheel alignment and fitted a new filter in just a few hours :)
    I left essex a very happy man[​IMG][/IMG]
    [​IMG]i then headed straight to swindon (nailed th journey 1 hour 35) absolutely loving my new ride,
    when i got there i got stuck into fitting my badger 5 tip only to find i had to modify it a lil to make it my apy engine but it all turned out well in the end :)
    wot a great mod!! defo best thing ive done for wile
    have more pics of the tip to follow
    i then spent the rest of the afternoon fiting my SWG race diagnostic thingy[​IMG]then on the sunday i repainted my wheels matt black and went to cheltenham cruise, where i think i shudda got a medal for almost running a copper over hahahahaha
    Then on the monday i put my good man VinceA3turbo's chippie skills to good use!!!
    i decided to strip out my rear seats in preparation for my 2x 12lb nos tanks which will be fitted next week. It was very adventurous for me but it its something ive wanted to do for a wile now, it was hard collar but i enjoyed it and i think it will look ace when the nos tanks and half show cage are installed over the next couple of weeks[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]prep work for the false floor[​IMG]false floor with my 12inch sub [​IMG]we also stripped ot the audi sub and 6 disc changer and mounted the amp for the sub[​IMG]THE FINISHED LOOK--------------------------------->>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>[​IMG][​IMG]I think its gonna looka ce with the 2 nos tanks in the back and show cage too.
    and one last pic of my s3's new stance[​IMG]its not ended there its off for a full service and oil pickup job then an mot, then its off to the wizards of noz on the 3rd of may.
    its all exciting stuff at the moment :)
    will ad some more pics as progress is made over the next couple of weeks ​

    It's seems that not many ppl are into the idea of nos!
    I just wanna be a bit different and go quick!!!!
    My kit is being installed by wizards of nos who have 35 years experience!!!
    And I'm going for a more expensive progressive kit!!!

    My car is mapped!!! It's at about 280 bhp
    I'm only adding about 25 bhp of nos at 1st to see how the copes!! When u nos a turbo charged car the nos cools the engine and it will make it run a lot quicker soooo 25bhp of nos will return about 40 bhp in total
    It also reduces any turbo lag that I had :)

    Specially if it blows up hahahaha
    I'm having a progressive kit so I can control it and bring it gradually!
    Probably have it coming in just as the turbo sort eases of I'll give an extra push on with the nos, that's the idea anyway it's all very experimental for me

    So you went from Essex to Cheltenham to go to the cruise and then went back to London? - Nutter.

    good effort with the mods though!

    As youve stripped it out you should consider some better/lighter seats aswell. Pole positions would look mint! Plus the standard armchairs weigh about 3 tonnes....EACH!!

    My only issue with them is they arent as strong and arent as secure on the car as a proper one meaning if you have a crash bad enough it will probably end up bending or snapping causing YOU more damage without going into too many gory details lol.

    Why not get a 3" TIP and filter from Bill? Standard airbox is just under £90 from Audi so you`d only add on a little bit more for the B5 TIP and get so much more from it.

    Ah right you want to put standard airbox on the B5 TIP? Jetex filter that he uses with it still be cheaper than a new airbox. Unless you could pick one up second hand as theres now loads of people with the TIP that will have just thrown their airboxes in the garage.
