Will see if I can get a couple of hours sometime to get the fancy bits fitted. Based on how long it took me to paint the rear hubs it’ll probably be 2021 before they’re on!
Is there any need to get the gearbox mapped with Stage 1 Revo?

Sorry for not being detailed.

Stage 2 is a lot of money for little gain really, stage 1 is brilliant at £700 for 350hp.stage 2 is a few thousand for 380hp.
Cheers, I’ve no real intentions of going any further than Stage 1. With the Racingline stuff and a Revo I reckon that’ll do me for a while. I’ll concentrate on sorting the minor cosmetic issues after that like the bumper and wheel refurb. I’d like to do the reverse camera retrofit and sort some way of getting CarPlay on the MMI

It’ll not take long to fit that lot :joy:

Did you get the manifold cover?

Mine was on back order with VW and was only dispatched the other day.

I’ll need to watch some YouTube videos. Intake and silicone hose looks handy enough, not so sure about the muffler and elbow. It’s also a cert the content of the coolant system will end up all over my drive 😜
Haven’t got the manifold cover yet, have spent enough this month!

Mine is the DQ250 6 speed, yours is DQ500

From Revo site:

Revo TCU Software offers improved response and optimised shift points but maintains the characteristics of Drive and Sports mode. Manual mode now gives you more control by disabling the automatic kick down feature, unlike drive mode where if you plant your foot the gears automatically kick down, allowing you to select the gear you want and make the most of the increased torque from Revo ECU software. Automatic upshift is still active all in modes to offer the best performance and safety for your engine, whilst Dynamic Launch Control allows you to launch at various RPM points depending on your throttle position, improving your 0-60mph times.

After @Jordy mentioned the inlet manifold cover I went and had a look at my engine bay. Not sure if the VAG part will fit as the Audi engine cover is different

Can’t find anything online for one fitted to an S3

Dunno why I assumed you had same cover as golf r etc:monkey:
To be honest it never really occurred to me that they were different.
Watched a video this morning on fitting the turbo muffler delete and I think I might need to get a professional to do it. Knowing my luck I’ll loose all the bits in the engine bay!

Service indicator flashed up I’m overdue an oil service and inspection. Think I’ll just get it booked in with Belfast Service Centre when they’re open. I’ll likely get them to fit all my Racingline stuff too as I’m a lazy heur. Hard to stomach Audi charging £170 to “inspect” my car and add the price of an oil change on top. This inspection sh1te really is a con.
