Thread: 2002 S3 with Large Snail & bits that fly off

  1. Default 2002 S3 with Large Snail & bits that fly off

    Hi,
    had this little beastie for a month or so, just tried to get it retuned on the dyno & it was starting to run lean so we backed it off to 465WHP.

    Drives much nicer now, will get it retuned when I work out what needs upgrading - maybe fuel filter, fuel lines or injectors just cleaned.
    Anyway, love this thing and this spec will keep me happy for a while.

    2.0 CTS stroker & GTX30/71 turbo kit
    ported head, IE cams, studs etc
    6 puck ceramic clutch
    Link G4+ running 30PSI
    Airtec cooler
    Catted exhaust
    ECS big brake kit front & rear
    lots more

    Hope threres a few other first Gen S3's on here, never see them on the roads here,
    Cheers Andrew

    nice one mate, a real sleeper..

    How's the feeling when it comes on boost? Does the quattro work well, or do the front tyres spin a bit?

    feels Rapid - very strong midrange into the top end.
    Front tires have never spun on me - the whole car gets a bit 'squirmy' under hard pulls but Ive never felt anything like like wheelspin. She just grips & goes! Will be interesting when I try & take it down the 1/4 - Baby steps I think

    Nice sleeper mate. Any plans for the track?

    Yeah, just the 1/4 for now, want to gain full mechanical confidence in the car before I start going back to Barbagello raceway again. At least the brakes will be well up to the job!
