    I managed 14.6 1/4 miles at GTI inters earlier this year with a stage1 remap and running heavy 19" wheels, time includes hitting the rev limiter in 1st! I reckon it would almost be possible to break the 14secs barrier running a remap and light wheels, but some may argue it's impossible.

    Limiter comes in at around 7.2k I think, or just as the rev needle goes into the red bit and you can feel the engine starting to hold back.
    Obviously an increased amont of strain would be put onto your engine components running higher power, but you soon get use to the power and drive as normal, only using it when needed, I also notice an improvement in fuel consumption with my remap with normal driving.

    Crail is a lot of fun, but I'm not 100% convinced by the timing gear or track length. I ran a 15.3 there earlier this year, but a 14.5 at inters with the same remap. I'm not saying inters is right, but there's a bit of inconsistancy.

    I think the best way to take Crail is to see if you beat your mates on the same day.

    RIGHT, I DID NOTICE THE LIMITER LIKE A SLIGHT FLAT SPOT.THESE AUDI,S EVEN A REFINED RED LINE. STRAIGHT LINE I THINK IS ONLY ONE SMALL AREA OF PERFORMANCE THE S3 REALY SHINES ON THE OPEN ROAD,LOVEING THIS BABY MORE EACH DAY.REMAP IS THIS DONE BY REPLACEING THE EPROM CHIP PROBABLY NOT BUT THATS HOW IT WAS DONE IN THE COSWORTH. ANY INFO WELCOME CHEER,S 'D'

    It's a remap on the standard ECU done through the OBDII port in your car, no chip change required.
