I have been born and become a grandad in the time this build has been going.
Looks like it will be a serious piece of kit though.I wish I could do this and write such a good thread.
The best thread on here by far.
Upgrade your suspension and brakes, and enjoy your S3. Peak power figures is for pubs, what's important is if you enjoy driving your carMines stage 1 unicorn motor developments 318 bhp 347 Ft.lbs and I think mines quick.I made a mistake buying a manual or I would have gone stage 2+ straight away as I don't really want to spend on a clutch so I think stage 1 is my limit on this car anyway.
All compliments gratefully received....
I have a feeling that by the time the car gets back to me that I'll either be too old and scared to drive it,or they'll cremate me in it......if it doesn't cremate me on it's own.
It was quick,but I hope it ends up being just the right side of scary.

I bought the RS3 Andy converted (650bhp+) and I'm sure yours will be similar to that so yes I think it will be scary (I spend more time Driving like Miss Daisy lol)
I'm never sure about drag runs especially on a new setup so let me think on that.
After nearly a year I can't afford to have any breakages!
I would be interested to see what it would run though, plus there isn't really anywhere else where you can test acceleration to 100+ mph.
That's right.....I'd prefer rolling starts and in gear acceleration as a better reflection of "normal" conditions,but let's see.
The weakest areas now would likely be driveshaft doughnuts etc,and that's now mostly new RS parts,and I haven't seen the car for 10 mths,let alone driven it!
I am sure it will be worth the wait though - at least you have a car to wait for, I am currently commuting to work in a 1.4 TDCi Fiesta and no other cars at the moment *sigh*.
Are you going to relocate the battery at all for more engine space?
Not on the to-do list,and the WMI pump is located in the rear battery well.
What I'm not sure of is whether or not that will still be needed,as Andy wasn't convinced he'd need to run it at all.
What WMI are you running? Planning to just use the windscreen washer bottle for my WMI tank as its been done by many others - using the winter screenwash mix which has 30% meth in the blend, would just need a pump and not need to faff around fitting another tank!
Ah ok, might go with a Devilsown kit when I do need to go with WMI, did you go with a single point injection or are you going to run 4 nozzles in the intake manifold?
