I'm new to the forum but have been reading a lot of your posts over the past few weeks since I got my S3 8L (reg 2000), some great info so far so thanks for that but now I need some help please! (Sorry for the massive first post but I'll trying to give as much info as possible)
I got VCDS and tried to work out how much power the car has but as the car has a revo remap (so the previous owner told me, but no proof) block 120 didn't seem to work well (result was about 170 bhp) so I estimated power using both MAF g/s and butt dyno but they are both reporting about 200bhp which I know is near standard but nowhere near what I would expect with a remap, I would think the prev owner had lied but the boost readings lead me to believe it is remapped so I;m at a loss!
I have a forge DV & k&n panel filter. I can hear the turbo spool up but cant seem to hear anything from the DV, not sure if thats normal?
I've tried driving with the MAF disconnected and it idled a little smoother from cold but no noticeable difference besides from that, N75 duty looks normal to me but I'm not expert so charts below & the car does have an ESP light on due to lat accel sensor electrical fault but I suspect it will not be related?
Any help is massively appreciated!
