    A silly question regarding remap

    As tile says a silly question so please don't jump on my back as I'm still new to modding.

    ok so I had my car remapped a few weeks back but over the last week I've been thinking that it doesn't seem the same as when it was first done, when I first had it done it felt like it used to but you back in the seat abit, but I don't get that feeling now, do they settle down a little bit?? Or am I just used to the difference now? As I have had to use my car for the last 2 weeks as my other vehicle being an Astra van diesel is sorn at the moment, I only used to use my car on the weekends really,.

    so do you think I'm just used to it now and feel like its stock again?. I will be going stage2 early next year

    Yup, you get used to everything pretty quickly!

    When I had a 220bhp dailly driver my 300bhp track car didn't feel stupidly quick, obviously it was fast, but not OH MY GOD quick.

    Switching to a 115bhp company tdi focus made the track car seem like an absolute rocket ship every time I drove it!

    People adapt. sounds like it's time for a ko3S!

    you could always reset the adaptions, this sometimes does the trick esp if you have been driving like a fanny...

    How easy is it to fit a new turbo on these cars (a3)? I've only ever done this on lancia delta's I've had in the past and they were on the front of the engine

    to be honest you do just get used to it. my old s3 was stage 2 and i hated the power of it. felt so slow. it was a daily driver at the time. my new s3 is just stage 1 and im lucky if i drive it once a week as i use a van. a transit that i dont take over 60mph and the car feels like a rocket and has done for weeks. its definately a daily driver issue in my opinion. daz

    Agree with everyone you are probably used to it you need a holiday for a few weeks then see what it feels like when you get back. That's why I like having a couple of toys in the garage means every time I take them out puts a smile on my face!!

    I usually drive a van being a painter/decorator so the car normally only get used on weekends, but I'm put in a position at this moment in time that I've just split with my girlfriend which Has left me with 3.5k credit card debt, and my van needs a new windscreen and be taxed, for a couple of months I have to be sensible, I need to put my van on the road ASAP

    It could also mean that thd extra boost has highlighted a week hose etc and you could have a leak.
    I got mine remapped a few months ago, and I also have got used to thd extra power.
    I test drove another unmapped s3 from a local garage to make myself feel better!

    Just picking this thread back up as I do feel like my car isn't as quick as when it go remapped, I understand that since it got done that I've got used to it, but it doesn't give me the same kick as it used to what I'm mean by kick is that it felt like put your foot down revs climbing then bang boost and feel that little kick. Now It's still on the k03 and last night went out in my mate a3 she has aum k03s which is around 200hp but her felt so much quicker and stronger ( more aggressive ) pulling, she has an amd map and mine is r-tech map?
    we did scan mine a few weeks back with her vcds lite and did come up with intermittent MAF signal or something of the sort, can't remember the code but will scan again to get the coded and google that, but could it be that I need a new MAF?

    thanks simon

    A lazy maf or foooooked maf can make a very noticeable difference to performance.

    Ok thanks, I will try my friends maf on mine as hers is only a couple of month old as she bought a new maf, and see if mine runs better, or it'll be that I'll have to find someone to data log for me or smoke test for leaks??
