    Fluttery noise instead of DV noise.

    Unscrew the top. Take out the piston and spring, remove 3 rubber seals, clean it up. New seals in with a bit of lube (provided), spring in, new piston thing in with a bit of the lube, screw top back on. You should get new springs too, I did anyway. Hope that helps.

    Very bad noises !!!!

    I had traumas, but now it's all good. Because I had the new rods that come with the arp bolts, garage under torqued them. Story short I needed another small rebuild. At their cost. Car is running better than it ever has. So much more pull too. Suppose it's just more efficient as its all new...

    Help with lost keys !!!

    Haha brilliant. My car key is always given to the mrs when I'm out on the booze. Just incase I get an urge to drive after. I tend to do stupid things when I'm completely wasted. Same as most ppl though. Some ppl fight, some crave food, I get an itch to drive unfortunately. Never done it mind.

    Just fitted my TIP and Jetex

    No oil, it's a dry filter. Which is why it's one of the best for our engines. As the oiled type kills the maf after a while IIRC

    Dog bone

    Have you used a yellow one, and the gone to a red? Or this just what ppl have said? I don't find the vibrations anywhere near excessive. but that's my opinion. I like it, and I recommend the yellow one. But I've never used the red one to compare.

    I no what you mean, I have the B5 v2 TIP sat in my room for 3 weeks before I could fit it. I'd google Audi a3/s3 adjustable drop links on eBay, ad see if any of the sellers are local to you? London area I'd imagine there would be a fair few
