    Look forward to seeing some pictures, was the S Line gear knob a straight fit? Certainly prefer the look of the S line gear knob!

    Ok thanks I'll see if I can pick one up off eBay, I guess it's the B7 A4 one you have fitted?

    I think the wheels are the same can’t see them being diffferent but could be wrong

    S4 Brakes fitted today with braided brake lines have missed the stopped power compared to the shitty standard Brakes

    Going to fit the intercooler tomorrow as the car is being remapped next weekend

    Current issue is now the EGR has been fully removed the car goes into limp mode when boosting hard

    Yesterday managed to get the intercooler on due to the size had to heavily mod the impact bar if you ran a smaller front mount wouldn’t need to cut hardly anything off.

    Made the cold side pipe work up just need to make the hot side and it’s all done, no need to mod the bumper or loose the fog lights

    Also sprayed the grill surround gloss black and pushed the “S” out the grill

    Job for today is hot side pipe work and fit the cupra R splitter on

    Sits just right! Oh it was you who had momentum remap your Exeo I’d seen it on Instagram didn’t realise it was yours. Have they deleted the DPF software and EGR and removed the insides of the DPF?

    Had the EGR and DPF deleted out
    smashed the DPF cells out today, night and day difference drive so much nicer a lot more low down power since having it mapped

    Hi There,
    You certainly have some sleeper mods going on and looks better for it.
    I've a question regarding the re map as its something I've been considering for a while now on my own Exeo ST CR170.
    How did you find Momentum as a company to deal with, hows the extra power come in as I don't want something too aggressive and finally are they the ones based in Ferndown as thats near me.

    Cheers
    Dave

    Very good company, quick response to messages, he’s knows about the software he uses.
    Power from the maps gives more low down torque and holds power up in he revs but doesn’t feel like an aggressive torque curve will be clutch friendly. Got a good price for the whole lot too.

    David did mine who is based in Bournemouth.

    DPF smashed out today, always use a bar and hammer no welding needed can’t tell it’s been modded that way :)

    Nice empty DPF housing, should see quicker spool and lower EGT’s hopefully a slight increase in MPG too

    I remember this car for sale on Gumtree, the guy was selling it for a very good price but I didn't buy it as it didn't have xenons.

    I look forward to see how this thread progresses, it's not often you see modified Exeo STs.

    There's a Facebook group for these, not sure if you're a member but I'm sure they'll enjoy seeing this.

    Jay, is it wise to post what you are doing to this ST as you have the reg No displayed in the posts?
