hello guys just purchased my prefacelift panther black st3 a week and half ago now
, im a newbie at this modding stuff. ive been looking at dreamscience website and come across this performance upgrade. i just wanted to know your views on it... it sounds handy because where im inexperienced i dont have to search all different companies for different parts ie the sports cat back, induction etc... im pretty sure i definitly want the dsci cais as ive heard good reviews about them..

cheers guys

. You wont go wrong with the Dreamscience set-up . I have the complete Ds set-up all bar the exhaust which was not available when i modded mine . It does what it says on the box

I have the DS full 3" system, race cat, down pipe and cat back.

The downpipe is an excellent upgrade, it helps the turbo spool up much much quicker as it has the capacity to remove alot more exhaust hot gases alot quicker. You will certainly notice a difference.

Yes intercooler will be need. With the ST, when engine temps get high which it will with stage 1, the ECU backs the power off basically to keep the engine safe but with intercooler, it won't do this so ull never loose power in theory

Standard intercooler is rubbish even on a standard car when the weather gets warm. It was one of those things that I put off buying for ages as it doesn't give any power


Had it fitted just before summer and there was a BIG difference. Well recommended. I bought the Airtec Gen 3 as it came out top of a magazine group test and is only £270 delivered compared to £500 for the other brands
