Default Best S3 Mods

Hi all,

I know this has probably been asked a million times, so i apologise.

I was just wondering what the best pound for pound mods are for the s3, and what you consider as a must?

Cheers

Stage 2+ map has been best power mod, but you need to spend 2200+ to be able to get basic pre requisites in place to make work.

and not just a panel filter either. Go straight for the big guns. Twintake, Evoms, IGT or maybe VF if you can find one.

Ive been looking into the filters, where would be the best place to get one? IGT seems to be the best? Any difference in the ones quoted?

I should say the milltek exhaust - the resonated turboback - it's a bit louder than the stock exhaust an you can feel the extra hp even without the remap

Amazed people think intake gives best gain. Good sound, but bang per can't equate they give the outright best gain.

Remap gives 40-50bhp for 500 (10bhp/100 spent), intake might give 10-15bhp for 200-300 (5-7bhp/100).
