    My Belated build thread

    Turbo looks shiny! Be interesting to see how it performs compared to the older tech. I'd be keen to buy the Zinram exhaust, was looking to buy one direct anyways, give me a PM when you do decide to sell it :)

    Turbo’s Obviously it's not as good as real world performance figures, but guess you'll struggle to find too much info on it all.

    There's a thread on the VWVortex forum where if you ask nicely and give the info on your setup, goals and potential turbo options the chap will give a breakdown of how each turbo would expect to perform and the best option for your goals. Guess you're looking at genuine GEN2 Garrett stuff and...

    My s3 v6 build

    That's fired and galled up a lot! Clean it up and bung it in the freezer, might help. But looks like it's a bit tight! Could get the dog bone reamed out if you really want to use it?

    What have you done today?

    Tossing up between this and the Zinram exhaust as they're about the same price, just question how good those electronic valves are and how long they'd survive... Would prefer a vacuum actuated valve. Didn't realise Zinram were so hit or miss with the customer service side of things!

    I know you were looking at different housings not sure if something from Arashi would be any good, couple hundred quid cheaper than genuine....

    A lot of shops stock some items they wouldn't necessarily recommend as the best option, but if enough customers demand a cheaper non drilled rod, then I understand why Bill would stock a decent quality cheaper alternative. I'm speculating, but I imagine they've most likely got much better...

    Basils had a S3X change :D

    Strange, mine went in with no problems at all. I'll check what settings were used. Could be a an issue with the bolt, concentrating the strain that would ordinarily be dealt with the bolt stretching, on that one point and then boom. no signs of damage? What do the sheared ends of the bolt look like?

    S3 8L 3" Exhaust

    Cheers for that, interesting to see the difference in the two set ups. Got a friend local that is just decided to go alone and set up his own custom exhaust company. So should end up with something like the Zinram that'll do that job without costing a fortune..

    S3 8L 3" Exhaust

    Ah you lucky so and so, that would have been ideal! I guess i can keep shopping around, i'll shove a post up on here and facebook and see what comes up. How have you found your Zinram sound and quality wise?

    S3 8L 3" Exhaust

    That's what i'd assumed, but the local places around Plymouth seem to want to bend me over before wining and dining me. Was quoted £680 for a 3" stainless cat back from one company, just hoped there might be someone who's had good proven results from a particular place.

    I've just sold my Milltek and i'm looking for a freer flowing, larger 3"/76mm cat back exhaust. I've currently been looking at the Zinram offering: Or the non res cat back version...
