    OMG WHY ARE WE SHOUTING!

    Anyway.. you make more than 150 bhp, so that's a good thing, you don't mention that your car is mapped..

    Can I ask why you are using standalone management instead of the standard management?

    imo, everyone in the world should be running at least 500 bhp.

    so based on that, you are quite a way off. sorry

    Very sorry for caps ,

    yes car is fully mapped , because you can do so much more with standalone management and you can throw the maf in the bin plus i can map it myself knowing ive done a very good job

    with that 'stage 2' sort of spec, with the intercooler, full exhaust, and induction upgrades, a ko3 is capable of 210 with a push from an experienced tuner.

    Yeah, fact SK.

    This is probably a baaaaad forum to be talking of binning off the standard management, the reason you THINK the standard management isn't up to the job is because you have clearly always been to incompetent "tuners" who haven't got a clue about ME and couldn't map their route to work let alone map a 1.8t.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    To be fair SK I think you are 10bhp up, 200bhp is the realistic maximum for a K03.

    How can you say the mapping is 100% spot on, got some logs?

    all this talk about slating a stand alone ecu, vs bosch me whatever

    you have no idea what health the turbo has..
    very often agu on tired k03 will make that sort of power levels...
    no idea on how hard its been asked to perform or anything

    insufficient information to say either way, but 185bhp is'nt unusual for a stage 1 tuned agu on old turbo

    i dont slate stand alone.

    i praise the guy for doing it and having a go.

    all im saying is he should aim for more, using healthy cars for examples.

    Question for jonno123.... What boost are you running it to and what duty cycles is it taking to achieve this?
    any dyno plots to show how it spools and holds boost for example?

    is the k03 tired?

    Standalone's can work very well when not incumbered with a lot of the bosch nonsense for factory smoothness

    the op's happy with it, can adjust it Himself,
    What none of us know from the little information provided is how hard its being driven in mapping terms

    more info req'd

    Agree. If I had the money I would be fitting DTA management to the track car.

    If I had a little less money I would be retrofitting ME 7.5 management and a DBW throttle.

    However, I have no money, so ME 3.8 it is.

    Choices choices.

    boost peaks at 17 psi at 3000rpm and drops to 8 psi at 6000 rpm

    afr is 12.1 and ignition is set so min ignition for best power

    duty cycle max'd is your answer... Depending on what the actuator pressure only is...

    slow to spool is another clue
