Having recently found out my S3 is actually remapped with a REVO Stage 1, I thought I'd better put it 'to the test'. Ideally, I want to go against a standard 210 model from 2nd' onwards on a private track (of course..) I still can't believe my car has the 'map.
But anyway, after the gym tonight, a fellow friend agreed to go side by side in 2nd gear (I was well through the rev range, about 5500rpm and he was screaming along touching 8000 (well into Vtec)), as we launched I (as I hoped) shot forward and gained a half a cars length on him. However, this was the same for about 400yrds. I couldn't shift him.
I know these things are quick (and light compared to the S3 AND more aerodynamic) but does sound about right to you from your S3 experience?!
2001 Audi S3 standard apart from Revo (approx 251bhp) and the Teg Type-R, standard.
