    How to get more power out of my tdi

    Hi,
    I have a 130 bhp tdi (A3 8L) and want to get a bit more power out of it. I know a Revo remap will get me up to 170 bhp, but is there anything else I can do instead of going for the remap? It costs over 400 pounds and I was wondering what cheaper options are available. I dont really want to fork out that much and even though 40bhp extra would be great, I would also be happy with 10 or 20 extra horses.
    Thanks.

    you'll probably need an uprated clutch once you get a remap (especially Revo) so you're 400 will increase to about 1000. My Revo'd 150bhp needed a new clutch within 5,000 miles. Why not try a tuning box. you should see an extra 25 horses

    and torque delivery will be much much better. it's not just about the bhp increase

    I looked into this quite a while ago and the only way you're gonna get much more power out of your engine is either a remap [with uprated clutch] or Nitrous Oxide.

    By the way, if you want quicker acceleration from standing then it my also be worth lowering your car and getting firmer dampers - helps stop some of the weight shifting to the back so your front wheels mantain traction better :]

    Hi sharma

    We can offer you a remap for your Audi A3 130TDI for 312.55 inc VAT

    The power figures will be approx 170-175bhp and 270-280ft/lb

    With the smooth software we offer there is generally no need to upgrade the clutch unless you have seen issues previously
