    Will be arriving later good peoples - car has had to go down to ATS this morning to rectify the mess the garage made of my front alignment changing my atlas bushes.

    Camera is in the (locked) glove box.

    Should of done them myself - they charged me 147 (plus 27 in the first place to incorrectly diagnose the knocking) plus fecked my tracking and expect me to get it done. Happy I was..... Not.

    DIY FTW!

    OK, OK.

    Here are a few photos from last night post install.

    I must admit I didn't take any during the install, as was FAR too excited about getting it in there and working to be honest!







    It's astonishingly accurate to be fair - the car made 259.5 BHP and 235 ft/lbs on Bill's rollers. The Liquid Gauge gave me last night a reading on peak BHP 258 and peak torque of 238 ft/lbs at a max boost of 19.1 PSI.

    That's pretty accurate to be fair - impressed, I am.

    Hopefully it will be a really useful tool for measuring BHP/Torque gains from mods in the future. Plans for an MBC (ordered today) and a silicone TIP which will be ordered next week.

    Also, I can monitor intake air temps which is very useful. I have been looking and intake temps when driving never get above 30 degrees Celsius. I am going to look back across previous logs before taking all the under bonnet heat-keepy-inny-stuff out for a comparison.

    Welly, if your using your vag com any time soon could you log your Maf, power, torque and boost (001,120, 115 blocks), only to see how accurate vag com is compared to the liquid gauge and a dyno.

    VAG COM will be gathering the EXACT same data as the liquid mate as they both connect to the ODB for the ECU. The data comes from the same place, but instead of an excel log file, you get a live LCD readout.

    VAG COM was very accurate when compared to the dyno also, on one run, the car made 256 bhp and the airflow was logged at ~205.

    Take 205 g/s and use the /0.8 rule = 256.25 bhp.

    I'd say that's pretty impressive....

    Oh ye, forgot the liquid uses the same OBD so it uses the same info to gather its data.

    Only reason I asked is because when I log them blocks I mentions I get about 235bhp and 245lbs ft but im running a standard map bar a few mods. Done some more stuff since I lasted logged (head and pistons cleaned, exhaust mani welded as it had a hair line crack and the n249 bypass) so will see what results I get then.

    Do it. My torque is down as I have a whacking great large port head on the engine, and that little K04 con't boost too well against it.

    That's partly the reason for MBC installation. My actual boost never gets to the requested level.... You can watch that live on the liquid too - it's always trailing underneath.

    Ye will do some logging on the weekend. Does anyone know what is the max power and torque you can get from a non mapped S3.

    I would love a liquid gauge if I could have it somewhere else instead of the drivers air vent.

    I'm planning to make a thingy to fit it in the middle right hand side vent when I get the time. Which will be the 10th of never or thereabouts.

    Not sure, whatever you can wind out of it I guess....

    That will be interesting to see what you can do. Maybe a little guide if its successful.

    I just wasnt to sure weather vag com was very accurate as I get near enough remapped figures or more than some mapped car do.
