    question, why would it matter if you had esp or not?

    Because the ESP tip has an extra hose running off it and the none ESP tip doesn't.

    the non esp version is a different design its not just the extra hose, think the esp version has to be a certain shape to clear parts but not sure, however i do no the esp models will fit and non esp models dont, do a search as some one modified a non esp to be able to fit a tip from an esp model

    You want my opinion, it won't fit, not with out some additional fettling. No one made a TIP for the APY engine, I still have a blue TIP sitting in my boot after 12months, cos all the bit's don't line up.

    Thought i could be done

    You just have to think outside the box to make things fit.

    I can remember when i used to mess around with Fords and people said that i couldn't fit a dry sump system to a FWD Zetec, Well i did it with a little bit of engineering.

    How about if you bought the Forge one? I can't see any other options for the Forge TIP on their site. It looks like they make just 1 TIP for the S3?

    this has been covered a few months back by another member, Forge agreed to make one IIRC but it was subject to minimum order and they wanted around the £130-£140 mark
