    Very cold reading on Dash

    Regarding the water temp gauge on the dash, just a query.. just bought another S3 8L. My old S3 warmed up very quickly, and the needle would soon stop at 90 degrees and stay there. My new one barely gets above 30-60. Even in the space of half an hour or so will never get to 90. Is it just a...

    Little update, car is currently at Jabba Sport, where they are fitting a decat, deshrouding the injectors, reparing the sump and sending the head off to be reconditioned with new valve guides, and finally porting! Looking forward to getting it back, hopefully mid next week with a dyno printout...

    Thanks matey! Just what I'm going for :) it's made a big difference, definitely worth doing, especially as all those pipes and valves are over 10 years old!

    Fitted the catch can today! What a difference! So much gunk, split pipes and valves removed! Fits reallly snug under the strut brace in the place of the relay box (relocated behind the air filter) I decided to vent to the atmosphere instead of back into the TIP so I capped off the TIP...

    Thanks mate! Unfortunately not, I have to plan every route around speedbumps as it is..but I can't avoid them all. It scrapes the exhaust already, and the new 3" will hang slightly lower so I just can't!

    Thank you mate! Yeah its really easy, I did a guide for the AMK and BAM engines http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/showthread.php?t=197570 Splitter is easy too, just start in the centre and get it fixed on with self tappers, then work your way round using a heat gun to mould the plastic and trim the...

    How to: N249 Bypass - AMK/BAM Engine

    I would go for 5 out of the 2, but ideally 4mm is best. I'm sure I got mine from eBay really cheap. Yep that's it mate, as long as its an AMK or BAM engine code that's all you need to do!

    O.Z Super Leggera on S3

    I'm looking at some 18" O.Z wheels for my s3, I'm currently on 19" TT/RS4 wheels. Current size is 235 35r19 . The wheels I'm possibly buying are 18" with an offset of et51. Will I need spacers to bring the offset down? Also what tyre size will I need for 18" wheels? Thanks, Ben.
