    Injector advice.

    Hi there. You guys know everything there is to know about the 8L,and should be able to give me a bit of advice. The car is an S3 8P,with a Syvecs ECU,running the S3 direct injectors up to 400bhp,with an extra set of injectors from the 225bhp S3 (06A 906 031 BC) above that. The LP fuel rail...

    Brundle's Gridwalk

    I've long been a fan of Martin Brundle,both on and off the track,and his gridwalk is always amusing,but yesterday I think he managed to excell himself in buttonholing the rich and famous. Started off with Nick Mason. Then a few assorted folk,before diving in to a gathering including the...

    Carbon fibre panels....doors/tailgate/bonnet...any interest?

    Just a thread to see if there is any interest in getting some panels made up by a motorsport supplier,who may be interested in doing some work for us,if the numbers are sufficient. Right now,I can't give any details on pricing or availability,as I would need to know likely numbers and what sort...

    Spec Stage 3+ clutch

    In a shameless piece of crossposting,here's something that anyone who needs a really tough clutch should look at...(they also do some lighter duty clutches). I needed a clutch to replace my Sachs,which had finally given up beyond 440lbs,and Revo had recommended a look at Spec,so eventually I...

    Another misfire cause for the S3

    Hi all...just to add another cause to the list of misfire causes and solutions. My modified S3 developed a huge misfire a week ago,and I thought something was terminally wrong. After limping it down to AMD,the fault turned out to be a crack across the plastic moulding at the top of the...

    Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tyres

    Just a quick question....does anyone use these or has used them on an S3? My current set of Goodyear F1s are getting a bit shabby after 6000 miles and a bit of extra dry grip might be interesting....I do know these are optimised for dry roads and tracks,but any feedback would be useful. Many...

    VolksWagen Racing Brake kit......superb

    After a lot of looking around,and a few dead ends,I finally decided on this... http://www.volkswagenracing.co.uk/Tuning%20General%20Pages/Brake%20Kit%20Overview.html JonnyC rated it very highly,and fitted it to his big turbo S3,and the specs seemed more than sufficient. Anyway....I took...

    Haldex Controller

    Just had one of these fitted to my S3,and wasn't sure what to expect beforehand,but I did know I wasn't happy with the persistent understeer,even after uprated ARBs and kW v3 suspension,which removed some of it,but certainly not all. Anyway,after a trip to AMD,(who did a very nice job of...

    Yet another trip to AMD

    AMD and you guys here are slowly cleaning me out! After reading a lot of threads here,and getting fed up with the roll and squashy ride of the standard S3,especially with a lot more power to show that up,I've bitten the bullet and bought the KWv3 system and Eibach ARBs. What a...

    Good day thanks to AMD

    Another very worthwhile trip to AMD....after the problems I'd had with a misfire on the Revo Stage2+ map with stock intake system,the boost and fuelling had been adjusted to try and either cure it or at least run the engine a bit cooler,and we'd later cured the misfire with a Forge CAI. What we...

    Main dealers that AREN'T bothered by remaps or mods.

    I know that most Audi dealers freak at the very mention of remaps or mods,and mine certainly mentions the mantra of "warranty invalid" at every opportunity,but if anyone has the names of dealers who don't lay an egg,could they let me know! I can see that posting the names in an open forum might...

    How much does the S3 ECU adapt?

    I know the ECU adapts after a reset as in when the power has been removed etc,but does anyone know how much by? I've recently had my car back to AMD to have a Forge DV and CAI fitted,and as before,the car initially felt pretty sluggish for a few days and has since improved as it's adapted...

    Another new arrival

    Hi...just to say hello and thanks for the help so far. I've owned several VW's and more recently Audis...a couple of A3's(2.0 TDi and 3.2V6) as well as an A4 3.0Tdi Avant and now an S3 which some of you have already been very helpful with. Excellent forum!

    S3 and Pipercross filters

    Hi....only my second post,so please excuse me if this has already been done to death here. I couldn't find many refs to people here using Pipercross filters on S3s so here goes....I'm having my S3 remapped at AMD next week,and also having the filter changed to a Pipercross panel and wondered...
