Just bite the bullet and order it mate.
I usually say I'll get this next month then order it a couple of days later, now I just order.
Nearly gave in and bought a bcs powervalve yesterday but my cobra downpipe passed its MOT no problem today so need to find another catback.
How far out does your tailpipes sit on your Milltek?
When I had mine I wanted them to sit level with the grey diffuser but couldn't.

LOL! I know I know I just can't stop spending ......

The milltek sits further in than the oe it replaced and must admit I really do prefer it, It's flush with the 90 degree up bits of the diffuser plus less to clean lol!!!!

Nice grchmason. I wanted a Milltek and waited ages for one to come up second hand. I found and bought a centre section, then kept missing out on cat backs. Downpipes just weren't coming up for sale 2nd hand so I bought Warrens old exhaust instead.

Let the spending continue :)

Looks really good and seems to fit really nicely. My miltek sits a bit lower and it's one thing that's always bugged me!
Did you use new rubbers on the mounting points or do anything different to get it to sit like that or did you just spend some time getting it aligned nicely.

A set of long nosed pliers and small mole grips to get the hose off the inlet mate... Works a treat for what can be a fiddly job...

The hose clamp on the turbo inlet is hardest bit, put some copper slip on the hoses to get them to slip over the inlet. Great sound mate

I managed to remove the turbo pipe clip with a pair of long nose pliers, turning the clip round to the left makes it easier to access.
Other than that its a straight forward less than 1 hour job. You'll love the induction sound.

Jealous your going stage 2+ before me. I hoped to be there by now but a big 4 day festival and a quick trip to Ibiza has pushed the car upgrade plans back to at least Autumn time.

Marshy... Any benefits of having the cobra mated to the milltek!? Any welding need done for that... I've got catback coming soon so maybe go full tbe eventually and any benefits would be good than the price of milltek downpipe with cat...!


Yeah mate.... All good! Car is coming along fantastic :)

Please don't put copper slip on the silicone hose, use hellerine as it evaporates when it dries, failing that use some hairspray as that also evaporates as it dries.

Sorry totally missed this post.
The benefits are just the same as any downpipe which is the turbo comes in a bit earlier and it definitely seems to give more power.
Mating to the Milltek was easy, I bought an adaptor as the Cobra downpipe is a complete 3" and the Milltek catback is 2.75"
Made my Milltek sound pretty good my only gripe with it being the tailpipes are too short for my liking.
As already said I wanted a BCS mated to my Cobra but it wasn't an option hence selling my Cobra.

Well been a real busy week for the S3

Revo induction kit from Pat @ LVS Racing turned up as promised! Pat is such a nice guy and went above and beyond to get me the Revo kit out asap! Totally recommend him to anyone

Got the Revo kit fitted over the weekend straight forward with no problems. Then on to booking in for Revo stage 1 having spoke to Kev @ Revo headquarters and Pat @ LVS both recommend SCC Performance in St Albans, Rob the owner of SCC has a Golf Edition 30 running awesome Revo power and as i’m sure your all aware the S3 has the same engine, So easy decision

Arrived at Scc to be greeted by Rob and took the car straight in Remap was straight forward all checks and drive was all 100% No faults etc……. so straight on to the Revo stage 1 loaded then Rob took the car on a test drive with laptop logging everything making sure everything was 100% I could see the smile on his face when he returned and I then knew it was all good. He commented how just so well it drives with power everywhere! SCC Performance is great company with a great attitude!

Drive home was fantastic and considering it was such a hot day 28c Car was a hoot power on tap and managed 34mpg even with my spirited drive home lol!!

Back for Revo Stage 2+ very soon as all thats needed is a fuel pump and Downpipe!!!! Just really enjoying it at the moment.

Had a few more detailing bits turn up so a review of them coming soon!!!!!!!!

A few pics below…………………..

Good stuff mate, car's looking great! Plan to get it on a dyno at all?

Did you not have Ebach springs fitted to the front? Maybe just the pic but the gap looks quite big at the front compared to the rear?

Hi Weve

Sorry for the late reply

The Revo stage 1 is awesome much more punch and torque is greatly upped! Smooth with power right across the revs. Standard clutch and touch wood is perfect mate









Thanks for the great feedback and soo pleased you went to rob, hes a top guy!!

Hopefully I`ll be hearing from you soon for some added hardware:whistle2:




You sure will Pat more mods needed lol!!! LVS Racing will be my first call!!!!!!!!!
