(also, will need to paint the rear calipers black to match the bbk, with some G2 caliper paint, same that I used on my GTI).

      With the coils coming in the coming weeks, everything should be looking and running quite good about a month out from now and will update with pics at that time.

      K04 is Tuesday tho
      Any reason you don't just order the S3 IC from a parts vendor for a fraction of the cost?

      $288 from AWE for just the IC (no hoses) , where do you see it cheaper?

      ^ pretty much sums it up (the spot on my head is a birthmark, btw). I was able to punch it later in 3rd gear around 3-4k rpms and HOLY **** was it just super fast and pulls VERY hard. It reminds me of a smoother Stage 2 STI, if not also faster of course (most likely). Car is still pretty quiet, yet the turbo is louder and does make "monster" sounds here and there.. low noises, etc, haha. Having the S-Tronic really puts the icing on the cake for speed here and keeping the revs up.

      Overall, this was definitely worth it. And I also feel fine leaving the stock dp, and adding the S3 FMIC. Today it was almost 90 degrees out and fairly humid, did some more pulls after this and it all seemed good. There is some slight lag below 3k now, but once it hits, it pulls like a freight train and keeps on going. Instant power on tap. When I shift, the needle barely falls, so power just keeps on going from about 3500rpms (a sweet spot) and the thing just rips to red line.

      I wasn't sure if this mod would truly be worth it - but it most definitely is My wife has no idea, and I think she's wondering why I'm in such a good mood

      Awesome!

      I can't view the video since I'm at work, but, I'll check it out when I'm at home. Since I used to own and track an '05 STi I can understand the power delivery and the acceleration that you are referring to. Man, I'm jealous!

      looking good. may i suggest getting rid of the chrome fog surrounds. it's better to keep it oem i.e. black edition instead of a hybrid

      yeah, I will probably paint them black at some point. Focus right now is BBK and fmic, then dyno tune to decide if I want to get a DP and change up the ECU flash or leave as-is.

      Unless you are going to seriously track it, just save your money and forget the BBK. It ends up just for show and a lot of blow to your wallet. just my 0.02

      2010 A3 2.0t quattro K04
      06-17-2012 06:02 PM #39
      nice setup- I have similar plans to do a K04 on a 2010 A3 quattro. After driving on for a bit, are you considering a downpipe and bigger IC? AWE and Milltek seem to be only DP suppliers with high quality HJS cats, so that's what I'm leaning towards. Also curious if an OEM S3 downpipe/cat could be obtained, but I'm not sure if any real gains could be had over an AWE or Milltek DP- guessing not.

      check out plastidip for an easy way to black out chrome pieces. I just tested it out on my white b-pillars and the stuff works good.

      Why no aftermarket downpipe? It seems like you would be giving up a lot of performance potential by keeping the stock one on there. That thing is pretty restrictive.

      S3 FMIC is on the way. Dp - may do billy boat or look into AWE more as thats what I had on my GTI - do they have one for the quattro?

      Didnt have time honestly. The kit was already paid for and I was trading in the GTI (was going to put the K04 and a new clutch in it, but decided I was done with manual for this area), so thats why it went on with the stock dp for now will look to upgrade later.

      AWE does not make a DP for Quattro.

      With the Golf R now on the market the number of DP available have gone up a lot! APR, HPA, 42 DD are the new ones. The old ones are BillyBoat, ATP, Miltek, Supersprint.

      APR says the Golf R one doesnt fit our cars? I am mostly looking at the BB, saw the ATP at ECS, can't find the quattro specific Milltek. I will check HPA again, 42DD did not have a quattro specific one either, iirc.
