    As the title suggests, would it fit? Ignoring slight customisation of the bumper for the outlets, they both look around the same size, and the fixtures seem to be in the exact place, anyone know?

    It actually looks like it would. Might be worth calling them to see how the dimensions compare.

    If it doesn't fit, one thing worth trying is giving them a call and seeing if the fixtures could be replaced with ones from the S3 box. Worth checking that the distance between the two pipes matches the cut-outs on your bumper.

    Speak to Jabbasport as their big turbo A3 has a TT modified exhaust on it, although it was apparently a real pain to fit.

    Let Maz have a go at it for you I am happy as larry with mine!

    Yes it will fit with some adjusments. If you look at the supersprint website they list the same part numbers for the back box and centre pipe for the S3 and TT.
    I have fitted a Supersprint TT system to my S3 and it required some work to fit but managed it in the end. All the hanger points are the same.

    could you get a cheap OE TT box off ebay and see how it fits? Then upgrade to a supersprint if it doesnt work out?

    looks like a great mod.

    i thought about this mod but imagine you would have to cut into your bumper for the 2nd pipe, it would also have to be the same size as the original cut, then would that single pipe look right in a smaller twin piped exit cut out ?

    Def's running with a powerflow quad exhaust, so his bumper is already cut out for the other pipe. Might look odd with two singles, might look great - guess it depends on the size of the single pipes.

    I think I'm keepin the powerflow backbox, Maz from MIJ has an idea in mind that "hopefully" will sort out my noise problems and I do like the way mine look at the moment so I'll see, plus I'm pretty tight on money nowadays :rolleyes:, I just like asking a lot of questions :blahblah1:
