Yeah, new and with specific options...and practical.
The S3 just isn't cutting it on that count...I'd prefer 5 doors...and don't like the Sportback.
I'm thinking Mk6 Golf...don't fancy paying £38000 for an R...so maybe a GTI.
I'm with Bill on this one...
Having modified the hell out of my S3 to end up with a car that handled and stopped as well as it went...a mates R32 with H&R springs and a pair of Dr Schricks finest cams is the equal of it point to point.
You may get bigger numbers out of the S3, but you have...
I probably would be better buying an Evo if I wanted outright performance...but wouldn't have one of those God awful things parked within 50m of my driveway!
Sure they are fast, but I couldn't live with the image...and the running costs make running a 911 look cheap!
Now, stop trying to rub...
£3485 for a 5 door.
They do throw in full (ha!) leather - actually leather/alcantara and the usual fake leather on the bits you don't sit on - heated seats and rear side airbags on the 5 door...for your £3485.
Which makes all the difference.... :whistle2:
You can get Xenons now...it was...
Can't get buckets on a GTI - even as an option.
I'd be happy with a GTI with standard seats - but VW don't seem capable of building them!
Another S3 would be nice...with buckets.
But the thought of a Golf R is giving me sleepless nights :whistle2:
Or rather the £39000 VW are asking for a...
I think it's a function of having the torque spike to give huge urge and big torque figures.
Mine was the same...it went from making around 100 lb-ft to 330 lb-ft in 700RPM or something equally silly...proper old-school turbo shove.
Not much you can do I don't think.
What's a significant difference?
How much of a gain, power & torque?
With regard to the other bits...the DV makes no difference at all as long as the original isn't broken...an at standard boost, a FMIC is of little gain. The charge air doesn't get hot enough to need better ICs as the...
I would doubt you'll see much...maybe a few BHP with another map...but in all honesty, you've got all the basics covered.
The K04 just isn't big enough to move enough air, and the manifold is struggling.
To get a meaningful gain over what you have, you will need a slightly bigger compressor...
