    RS3 8V Orders List

    Does an Australian order count? Just ordered a "Speed Yellow" RS3! Feeling excited as they say.

    New 2015 RS3!!!

    No not in an option pack for Australia (at least). It'd be exclusive, which makes things even more complicated as there are a few shades of yellow to choose from. I'd go with Nardo but then have already had two grey Audis previously. :(

    Forge Twintercooler on S3

    For drag racing, I need the ability to keep the intercooler cool whilst idling/ waiting in queue, hence needing a water spray system with a proper FMIC that sits in front of the AC condenser. But there is no doubt that a single large cooler would work very well whilst the car is in motion.

    Forge Twintercooler on S3

    Just an update to this thread. S. was kind enough to sell me his modified twincooler since they never made a proper version for the facelift S3 sportback. The cooler is on it's way to me now, once it's setup with a water spray system I'll report back whether it works well or not.

    Lets talk Hybrid K04 turbos. S3 BT owners advice needed.

    The Forge RS3 intercooler is interesting. So your source was implying that it'd fit 8P S3? What about the stock cooler, do they offer a delete kit to remove it, or does it work like the forge twincooler ? As I understand RS3 and TTRS have a true FMIC from the factory unlike S3 which is behind...

    Fastest Stock Turbo 8P S3 Quarter (1/4) Mile?

    I'd think with 850whp a low 9 is definitely possible if not a 8! That's of course if they prepare the car properly for drag racing - weight reduction, increase traction n etc.

    Fastest Stock Turbo 8P S3 Quarter (1/4) Mile?

    Was just reading about this car the last few days, it's also the most powerful 8P S3 in the world. There is however another even quicker 2.0TFSI in the form of a MKV GTi which did 9.7 sec IIRC.

    Fastest Stock Turbo 8P S3 Quarter (1/4) Mile?

    Well, a combination of quite a few things needs to happen. The short answer is: get to 400hp, reasonable weight reduction, proper suspension and tyre setup, and do plenty of runs to fine tune everything.

    Fastest Stock Turbo 8P S3 Quarter (1/4) Mile?

    Last year, there was a stock turbo 8P S3 from Greece which ran 11.7. That'd probably be the quickest in Europe if no one else has gone quicker since.

    Fastest Stock Turbo 8P S3 Quarter (1/4) Mile?

    A cool day plus a good launch would get you into 11s. Which S3 were you referring to?

    Fastest Stock Turbo 8P S3 Quarter (1/4) Mile?

    Time slip from last night. Not my best ET but managed to 120MPH, which should be another record for stock turbo S3.

    I'm interested :D

    Forge Twintercooler on S3

    So can anyone confirm that the forge twincooler for facelift S3 8P3 is out? Is it the same kit as for Golf R? Where's best place to make the purchase?

    Forge Twintercooler on S3

    I have no doubt a big single works very well but as I plan to add water spray to the front mount so the twincooler seems to be a good idea.

    Forge Twintercooler on S3

    I see. Thinking about adding twincooler to my stock S3 intercooler (metal end tanks). Not sure how that would affect pressure and flow. I'm guessing most of air would go through the twincooler as it'd be cooler but it is a lot smaller than stock, now would that be an efficient setup?

    Please tell us more. Did you experience pressure drop with the twincooler?

    Photoshot: Widebody RS3 Transformation - Sepang Blue w/ 275-30-19 :)

    Cool conversion. Particularly liking the pumped guards.

    Time for a build thread....big turbo

    Sorry to hear about your cams issue. The general consensus after talking to a few tuners and Golf R BT owners is that S3 cams are already very good. In fact, most GTi guys when upgrading to K04 or BT would choose S3 cams over other supposedly more aggressive profile aftermarket options...

    Fastest Stock Turbo 8P S3 Quarter (1/4) Mile?

    That intake manifold is looking very nice Alex, which reminds me to go back and finish reading your thread (not that it'll ever finish, I hope not), remember I left it at page 30 last time:D
