Re: Tremec 5 Speed box V12

Thanks guys.
It doesn't need shimming according to the supplier, so fingers crossed. I might check the dimensions now you have put doubt in my mind.

Has anyone fitted the SNG Barratt Heat shields to S3. The ones I removed with made of some sort of fibre board. The SNG ones are aluminium. I am not sure how you are supposed to fix them.

Fuel pipe routing S3

Hi all,
Just received my body work back after a long period in the paint shop.
Can someone send me some nice photos of the underside of a S3 roadster so I can see the routing of the fuel pipes.

Thanks.

Re: S3 Air filter boxes

Picking up on this old post.
I want to refurb my S3 air filter boxes & wondered if anyone can confirm the exact paint colour.
I would tend to agree with the previous msg about the finish being smooth, just want to know if I can obtain the right paint & colour.
