    Hi Guys,

    I have an S3 Saloon (2014)

    Mods so far:

    Vagbrem Discs
    8 Pot Calipers
    APR Stage 2
    APR DSG Map
    Racingline Intake, Elbow & Muffler delete
    Racingline Intercooler
    GFB DV+

    I'm looking for the next thing.

    I know suspension is one that people will mention but I'm kind of holding off for now.

    looking at things that could improve how the car runs and keeps it as regulated as possible without it going bang haha.

    any ideas guys?

    I’ve got turbo inlet pipe done.

    Mike, am I right in saying you have stage 3 S3? Not sure if your the one I watch on YouTube!

    Any suggestions on throttle body?

    Cheers

    I’m not stage 3, Revo stage 2 but I got the CTS throttle pipe kit and turbo out let kit. I also have the Turbo Technnics intake.

    There’s also some aftermarket inlet manifolds or swirl flap delete kits available.

    Intake upgrades?
    Exhaust/Decat upgrades?

    Have you forget to mention this or have you managed stage 2 with stock intake and exhaust?

    You should certainly upload some photos of your mods - I’d like to see your brake upgrade :)

    In the interest of preventing potential detonation then uprated fuel pump and colder grade plugs. I dont know what the limit of the stock fuel pump is but I'm assuming you are pushing quite a few horses so the fuel demands must be pretty high. Worth looking into.

    In years gone by another mod people added was a water injection kit which sprayed a fine mist into the inlet to help lower the intake temps. Worked a treat for those who had it, but it means having a small tank, pump and pipework under the hood and then having to keep the tank filled up. I dont know whether any specific kits for this engine are available.

    Sorry forogt to mention I also have upgraded spark plugs installed.

    Fuel pump is something I have heard a few people mention, so thanks for that, I will look into that.
