    For narmal driving i dont think its good practice, more suited for track days i think. Im not too sure about this area, no doubt someone will be along to correct and clarify.

    For normal driving, i would say high boost is pointles and just putting more astrain on the components... so it probably best to stick to low boost.

    Re: B*STARD!!!

    Okay maybe I am being a numpty, but isn't "high boost" the equivilent of a "chipped" car?

    If so, why not run chipped all the time?

    Yeah, so stock just in case, low for valet etc., and high for chipped.

    But why not run in high/chipped mode all the time?

    Stock = Standard mode ie when car goes to Audi
    Low mode = Relible 265Bhp Little risk
    High setting = Can put strain on engine if ran all the time

    Think that answer's your question but maybe not lol [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    I'm running high boost 9, timing 7 permanently now. I'll let you all know when the turbo blows.

    It delivers 282 lbs.ft torque, and circa 275 bhp.

    I met a guy on holiday who works at Silverstone on the S3s there. Said they had a big problem with the turbos - many had to be be replaced.
