That Milltek exhaust does sound rather nice with the valves open... Anyone know what the cost of something like this would be and how would this affect MOT in the UK. Would it still pass....?
You could just do the back box which would not affect MOT I believe, unless you do the downpipe with sport catalyst or catless.

For the F3, discounted, they are less than £2k. On the 8U, I don't recall Milltek making one - Supersprint used to do systems though they are no longer in the catalogue - was really silly money @ around £2.5k +VAT. MOT would be fine - valves closed.

Put my RSQ3 on Dynojet before doing modicaiton




366WHP and 474NM on a fully stock car (Sorry it is in our language😬)


We did try another pull from gear 2 > 3 > 4 to see the loss between gear change, which may could be improved by TCU software upgrade.


Here is videos:

Id like to know your thoughts on the ride quality of the car before and after your suspension change once you have had a bit of time with the new setup.

Road quality has been improved A LOT after suspension change!! Currently my ride height is set a bit higher on front and a bit lower on rear so both front and rear looks same height.

I stay with KW recommended damper setting for now, I would just drive it for some months and see if height or damper needs to change setting.

The biggest impression I have so far is the lifting when cornering, I can feel it totally change and has been reduced a lot.

Another thing is, the feeling of fear when changing lane speedily on highway has been gone. I was really afraid doing that before suspension change, it felt like car was not able follow up when change lanes repeatedly fast but now the fear is no more and I can feel more confidence to do that. The feeling is just right!!

Ended up selling my Unitronic downpipe to a friend, and getting a catless downpipe from local exhasut shop, I also asked the shop to do vband between pipes, which Unitronic's does not have, to avoid potential leaks. The reason I am going with catless instead of catted downpipe, is because I will be running bigger turbo TTE700 and exhaust temp will be higher if running with cat. Without the cat, exhaust temp will be lower.

My friend, who got Unitronic downpipe from me, is installing it to his RSQ3 and found out that our factory exhaust hanger mounting is necessary to modify or the mesh flex bellow will touch to it, since this Unitronic downpipe is made for RS3/TTRS, some modification is expected but fortunately it has just one thing to modify. Other than this, everything is just fitted directly without modification.

Here are photos of my catless downpipe.





This is RSQ3 stock downpipe and OPF pipes together with sensors and cables. The OPF function will be OFF from software done by tuner so car is able to run without EPC.


Two straight pipes replaced with OPF pipes, car now sounds awesome and that is 5-pot engine should have. Totally released the roar.


All my supporting mod came back and will be installing together with turbo, intercooler, downpipe at the end of this month. CANT WAIT!!

Thanks mate (y)

To be honest, I'm not sure how much power I will gain from doing these, because it depends on our local fuel quality and weather, the best fuel we can get from gas station is 98RON and our temp here in Taiwan is 29-32deg C. With two mentioend condition, I don't think I can gain the same power like most people does in the US or UK with same modifications at 550-650WHP.
I will see how much we can reach next week when car is in tuning shop. Anyway, my power target is not that high and 500-530WHP is good enough for me 😂

Done some more things :cool:

- Added optional tire pressure measurement system that I didn't click at the beginning when I ordered the car. Looks so NICE as it integrated into VC.


- Another performance parts arrived and waiting to be installed next week. Larger cast turbo outlet pipe made by THE-TUNER in Austria.


- Made a cold start video after catless downpipe and OPF-less mid pipes fitted.

Got a P3 digital gauge but still need to find a place to fix since they P3 does not make one integrated to OEM air vent like they did on RS3 or TTRS.


It reads OBD2 so values are accurate. I use this to observe my boost and air intake temp, it has many many functions like EGT, coolant temp, timing adv, AFR and battery voltage.

I put here temporary before I find a best place for it :ROFLMAO:


Trying to improve handing :cool::cool::cool:


APR dogbone, insert and 034 front sway bar fitted


034 rear sway bar fitted


Done :love:

WOW, car looks amazing and some serious performance upgrades!

Just waiting on mine to be collected Tuesday, some subtle mods on my mind and the one I’m first interested on is the suspension, like yours mines the standard sports suspension but will try it first to see how good it is on our UK roads. As well as more confidence inspiring with the KW’s do they also soak up the poor road surface better would you say?

Look forward to seeing more of your build and progress.
