    S3 boost Problem??

    Hi all recently just bought an s3 and it has a revo remap miltek exhaust, k&n panel filter and a forge 007, iv noticed the boost is kinda all over the place on it, one minute it feels like its pulling fine When u floor it 1st,2nd seem fine them 3rd onwards after about 4000rpm up the boost seems to have faded away like a flat spot then the odd time around 5000-5200rpm it would kick back in again.... i got it a full service today but still seems to be doing it, ma pal went all over it today for boost leaks etc but everything seemed fine, dont get me wrong sometimes it boosts fine all the way up n it pulls amazingly so i notice it right away wen it starts acting up, ma pal also plugged it into the comp no fault codes, anyone got any ideas? thanks, Gaz

    Faulty N249? You need someone with Vag Com to do some logging while you drive it...

    Unplug your maf (mass air flow sensor, the thing that contects to your airbox with the plug in it), take it for a spin and see if it goes away?

    If you know what a N249 and a N75 does, you will know what to look for....
