    This is in prep for its new hybrid k03/4 turbo.. which is >300bhp spec turbo packaged into a k03 fitment, bolt on. Hybrid is fitted, but its old exhaust was never going to be adequate for its new flow potential.. Same turbo internals on a local S3, makes 338bhp/307lbft from 20-22psi boost.

    okies.. 3 into Lupo does indeed GO
    3" TIP - check
    3" Downpipe - check
    3" Full Bore exhaust - check

    Comparison to its previous so called 2.5" system (which was 2" internally)

    it lives!
    started 1st time after priming the oil system up.
    idles like std, drives like std.. amazingly.
    550cc injectors, 80mm MAF housing... K03/2283 hybrid on it (prototype)

    waiting on inline fuel pump to arrive as I dont expect the in-tank pump to be able to deliver the required fuel under load this hybrid will pump air for.
    EGT probe fitted for logging when mapping to see how the hotside copes

    Charge cooler as 2k says, since I guess there`s very little room for a decent air-to-air intercooler upfront. :thumbup:
