    How high can I raise the power

    What will a 1.8TQ take and still be reliable?

    As you know its booked in at AMD on Friday and I was wondering what other mods they could do to it while its there to really make the most of it

    Any suggestions?

    ONly other reasonable cost mod is a turbo intake pipe, and if you want to go all out, a full milltek turbo-back system.

    normally the A3's the tuning stops around where the S3 tuning starts...

    your be nudging just 200 - 210bhp mark.

    AMD have quoted me 210-215bhp for the chip, if I had the full system and turbo intake pipe would it not take power to around 220-225bhp?

    millteks on the S3 dont appear to work as well as some of the other models.

    Its reported and documented that its not so much a bhp increase, but driveability and smoother.

    i certainly wouldnt bother with one on mine until the standard one falls off.

    not sure about the intake pipe. It doesnt fit the S3
