    As above has anyone used a 2.5"/3" test pipe on their 2.0t? I'm looking to get the below and have read good reports on other forums who have fitted one to their standard system, they say most of the restriction is In the Cat so this should help free up some more power. They also sound really...

    Anyone went from MK5 GTI/B7 A4 to S3?

    As the title, I'm interested to see if any owners have went from a 200bhp MK5 GTI or B7 A4 Quattro to an 8p S3?

    FMIC - What have people got?

    As the title, I'll be looking to upgrade to a front mount intercooler soon. I'm not looking to spend mad money, 200-300 ideally.
