Hello all again,
Right i've bagged a non Forge TIP. My question is though. What happens if you don't have the alloy tube connector just before the end to the turbo.

Just watched a video on the KTM - X-Bow. It has a Audi engine pushing out 260bhp. Anyone know what engine it is.
Im guessing its the 20v 1.8 T as on the Forge website the dump valve is a VAG one.
Just out of interest....
I'm thinking now i've got bigger wheels (17"'s) my A3 needs a drop. I've had a look for coil overs but there expensive. I'm only looking for 30mm - 40mm max so she sits right.
Where's best place to per'chase them & do i just slip some spring on or fit some coil overs for the...
Right ive had my car checked out by a turbo centre. He said the gasket to exhaust manifold from turbo ( 3 bolt ) & the exhaust manifold are leaking :(.

I want to by pass this little piece of pipe works. My engine is 2000 AJQ.
My question is do i have this valve ? I have 4mm silcone pipe waiting to be slipped on. I read some where that if you dont have it then all i have to do is run a pipe from my DV to the inlet maniold ...
Just been and had work on the A3, ive had 4 x new injector seals, crank sensor & lambda sensor. But found that there is a leak in the exhaust before the downpipe.

I'm replacing my front anti roll bar (body to bar bushes) very soon with a kit. The bushes i need are 20mm dia.

Right i know there isn't MEANT to be a sump gasket for the 1.8T 20v engines but by my magic i've found one (only listed for 8 engine codes though). As far as i know only one company makes this gasket. Its not too bad on the price ether.
Thought id let you all know. As some people...
Here ive found a "Made In China" copy of the Forge 007p. Buy at your own will but you'll prob end up buying a proper Forge DV.
Glad there is No installation instructions not included because have you seen how they print them, you can never understand the instructions. For £57 may as well get...
When i brought my car few weeks ago, i found a spring & bushes in the door pocket, also noticed the clutch pedal was loose. Looked in to it & found it was the clutch return spring.
So i brought a new clutch shaft pin (bit were the bolt goes though) & 2x metal bushes.
Came cross this the other day. I used to have one on my old car it was great bita kit. Just wondering if anyone has one on their A3.
I know the S3 has a diff kit.
I know someone was talking bout re-directing air con air into the inlet but ive just found this (board i know).
