JonnyC’s Audi S3 build..

I then sold the car and pursued the MK5 ED30, building (on a standard turbo) the fastest MK5 GTI in the UK (despite what some people say/claim) The fastest 2.0T FSI powered car in the UK and the the fastest DSG MK5 in the world, and all on the standard K04 turbo..

That was great fun, but really I felt that I wanted a change and when I saw that my old S3 was back up for sale, I jumped at the chance. Big mistake so it seems.

I collected the car from Leeds (about 60 miles from where I live) and by the time I was home the car was struggling to even run. Anyways after lots of investigation over the past week it turns out that its melted piston no. 1. The head is being taken off tomorrow and we should then know what else has happened!

Hopefully its just a case of a small hone to that cylinder and drop in some nice new low compression pistons and forged rods and away we go..

So for the next 3 or more weeks the car is going to be off the road, having the engine and turbo kit built..

Here is the spec that im aiming for on the car, this should make a pretty nice car!


* BSH race turbo kit – Purge welded tubular V-banded manifold

* GT3076R turbo with anti surge comp housing, billet compressor wheel, metal bearing cages, race spec bearings and Tial V-band exhaust housing

* Tial MVS 38mm V-band external wastegate

* Forged rods – non tapered little end

* Low compression Je pistons (yet to decide on bore or CR)

* Coated con rod bearing kit

* ARP 2000 rod bolts

* ARP 2000 head stud kit

* Revo stage 3 software

* N2MB Wot Box – 2-step / flat shift option

* OEM Audi RS4 injectors

* Autotech High pressure fuel pump

* Forge Motorsport remote DV kit

* Forge Motorsport PCV fix / catch can kit

* Forge Motorsport twintercooler kit

* Custom throttle body to intercooler pipe

* Forge Motorsport Twintake kit

* 76mm v-band downpipe

* 38mm v-band dump tube

* 76mm Ti exhaust system

* Full A/C system removed

* KW adjustable camber plates

* AST race suspension with custom short springs helpers

* Whiteline Anti Lift Kit

* KW race anti-roll bar kit

* Poly bushed suspension all round

* Project Mu 6 piston race calipers with 380mm discs

* Project Mu race pads – rear

* Braided front rear brake lines

* Race brake fluid

* Spec Mini Twin race clutch Aluminium flywheel

* Race Haldex controller

Audi S3

* VWR Engine mount – Race

* VWR gear box ounts – Race

* VWR billet lower subframe mount – Race

* VF engineering pendulum mount

* Forge Motorsport adjustable quick shift

* Forge Motorsport adjustable side-to-side quick shift

* Force fed engineering solid bushings – Shift cable support bracket

* OEM optics front grill

* Black mirrors

* Front splitter center section – Satin black

* Rear diffuser section – Satin black

* PIAA 6500k xenon bulbs upgrade

* PIAA 6500k side lights

* Silvervision indicator bulbs all round

* 6500k rear number plate bulbs

And thats about it. haha. So quite a list really..

Heres some pics of the turbo kit, I considered the ATP kit, but this will make far more power when its really being pushed, and the Tial v-band stuff is so nice! I want to do this once, and right the first time round! For sure I would be able to do it far cheaper, but this is going to be a no compromise project, and a one of a kind car for a long time to come!

The end goal is 600hp and 1200kg. That would make for a 500hp/tonne power to weight ratio. Similarly powered Evo’s run 10’s no problem, and that is the aim for this car.

10 second 1/4 mile on STRAIGHT pump fuel, no additives, no nitrous, just fill it up with V-Power and go!

Bare in mind my Golf ran a 12.6 1/4 with 290hp/tonne and FWD. Yes it was DSG, but you get the idea. Its not going to hang around!!

Anyways here we go, this should be quite fun! Its going to be at least 3-4 weeks before I get the car back, but by then it should be running the spec above. My god I cant wait to drive it.

Its going to be amazing!!
