Hey guys, as you might have noticed in my previous thread - I blew up my S3 engine, so now I am ready to build it again. This time correctly and with rods! Aiming to achieve 300hp+. 350 would be perfect. I will keep posting updates about my progress in here. To recap, here are the parts I already have on the car: 3" de-cat downpipe 300hp+ rated K04 Hybrid Badger5 TIP FMIC Redone intercooler piping K&N panel filter Parts I have on my shopping list: 550cc Bosh (or similar) injectors 4BAR fuel pressure regulator Forged rods (not sure which yet) Exhaust manifold (also not sure which yet) Walbro 255lph inline fuel pump So here are a few things I would like to ask: If replacing rods & injectors + I have the S3 cams, do I actually need a new S3 engine? Or can I pick up some other 1.8T engine for cheaper? If so, which? What aftermarket exhaust manifolds will keep the same turbo placement spot (so I don't have to re-do the downpipe)? Do I want the rifle drilled rods? Is there something I missed in the parts list? I have the Badger5 TIP, but my car is LHD. The TIP is deformed by brake lines pressing in on it. Should I leave it or just put the smaller sized silicone TIP instead to save myself from potential bigger problems. Thanks.
