Will be looking at buying my brothers Audi A3 1.8t 8L car soon but have a small question about the gear box. How much bhp and torque can they take before you start getting problems?
I used to own a 2007 Seat Ibiza Fr pushing 240bhp and around 300lbs torque from a ko3s turbo. All internals standard, just bolts on mods and remaps to get the power, same old stuff. Car was fine and never had any issues at all other than fitting a 400lbs torque rated clutch to transfer the power.
I take it that the Audi gearbox can take the same sort of power with no issues. Should also note that the engine code is AGU if that helps at all.
