    Question 140 with the Mofo??

    Hey guys, went on the motorway for a quick hop today and recently I installed the MOFO (from modshake). now before I could swear 5th gear would only go up to 125mph, today it took it to 140. I was well pleased, cause the car felt very stable at those speeds (after the arbs and bushes, first time I test it out on the motorway). Anyhow just wanted to ask what you guys get 5th up to roughly? just to compare so it ain't a pissin contest
    <--always wanted to use this fella so here he is

    mofo = Mass oxygen flow optimizer (lol), here's a linky:http://www.modshack.info/BAMM.htm

    it's basically a MAF that has 11% more surface area (slightly bigger than the standard, goes in conjunction with a .4bar fpr. I'm sure a few people on here have it on.

    So previously when you attempted to max out 5 gear did you run out of puff to get round to the higher revs meaning this new product gives extra power?

    It was 140 the motorway mate, not a public road so it wasn't that bad. I bet you've tried 140 on the motorway. what's "squeaky bum time" lol sounds funny

    not sure by running out of puff. I mean that before mofo 5th gear up to 7000rpms would only do 125mph, after mofo 5th gear up to 7000rpms did 140. THERE MUST BE SOMEONE ELSE ON HERE WHO HAS THIS FITTED!!!

    well the only thing I changed was the mass air flow sensor (Look at the link above) it explains what it is.

    Def, same revs and different speed, it ain't happening, unless you changed the gearing on your gearbox... also, I've never had the need to max my speeds out in 4th, 5th or 6th gear(if it was possible) had 150 on the odo before though.

    Ok, guys I think some of you are getting the wrong end of the stick slightly. I am by no means a mad driver and I usually drive around the speed limit espcially around the city. + have had a clean license since I was 17 no points nothing so I'm GOOD. lol

    JOjo, I didn't say I had the "need" to max it out, it just happened. U know how it is, bmw floors it from the lights so I'm just crusing until I realise I'm doin 120somethin in 4th, it didn't feel like that (cause of the arbs and bushes) so I just wanted to see what 5th would do, I didn't neeeed to I just wanted to see.

    Now I'm really confused (was I in 5th or 6th) how the hell did I get 140 in 5th then? I'm pretty sure it was 5th. It makes sense that speed shouldn't be different due to having the same gearing but how was I able to get that speed on that gear? don't mean to be a naggin girl I'm just confused what my car's doin and if it's ok or norm

    lol, yeah I would remember takin it to bits and I def wouldn't do that (me no mechanic in any way) I'm sure it was 5th cause I had to shift after to change rpm down from 7000 and it would only do that if I was on 5th.

    Before I had any mods on the S3 I had well over 130mph in fifth on an autobahn - took a while to get there. I didn't take it up 7000rpm in that gear at that speed, not sure I'd like that

    Chris thank you for telling me that, it's reassured me big time now, I thought I might have something wrong with my gears

    Rev-head, I did clean the MAF with Isopropanol, so it might have been dirty before, but I used the same MAF sensor, took it out of the old one and installed it in the new "slightly" bigger maf

    I've had 150 on the clock & there was more to go. I didn't get any more as there was a roundabout coming over the horizon & my arse was giving it heavy winks! Not sure where I'd get in 5th but I try not to take it much over 6000RPM at all. That red bit means danger I think.

    If that's true, and frankly I doubt it, you obviously have no regard for your friends' lives.

    I only ever drive REALLY fast when I'm on my own or if it's required - like when I was doing 115 on the way to get my dad to the hospital.

    How I have seen the speedo read 155 on my S3 and the previous owner is sure he got it to 160 and he's not the bull****ting type. As long as the S3 is working ok I'd be happy sitting at 120 in it, it's just everyone else on the road that makes it dangerous which is why I rarely go that much over 100 anymore unless there is nobody on the road at all.

    I think it's geared to do 110ish in 4th and 135 ish in 5th.

    No I would never drive that fast with people in the car, I always drive like a loone when I'm alone, I just think if I get into a crash then atleast it'll be just me and no body else. I guess the general though here is that 140 is very achievable in 5th (as some of you have somewhat mentioned), so I guess the Mofo just helped me out a lil on top end pull. Doesn't anyone on this forum have a Mofo fitted to their car?

    How confident are you that your engine can meet the required fuelling at 7000rpm with the extra air-intake.

    The advert for the MOFO says it will work within standard ECU parameters but also mentions remaping to give extra fueling/4 bar fpr.

    I'd be very concerned about running lean in the conditions you describe.

    And doing those sorts of speeds on a public road is dumb, as is discussing them on a public forum.

    I have the .4 bar FPR installed. and some of you need to take a pill to chill out, this wasn't a pissing contest as mentioned from the start so stop having a go at me for doin a silly speed 140 is nothing
