    Hey ya! New S3 owner =)

    Imola Yellow -00 S3 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    No mods done to it, I'm trying to get hold of an chipped ECU from car-seller. Due its easier to sell an unchipped car... Does anyone know if its just to switch the databox? Any diffrence between yearmodels?

    Re: Hey ya! New S3 owner =)

    Thanks Guys,
    so has anyone done any mods to the Haldex-system? I was recommended the Haldex-upgrade first of all but 1000 seems alot for no power =P

    what does the mod do?

    IIRC, it could be the 50/50 power split module jobbie.

    Re: Hey ya! New S3 owner =)

    I dont belive there is any problems to order the parts, they also say that the parts can be mounted by other workshops... The result is more oversteer at lower speeds and less oversteer at realy high speeds, it will also react much quicker when you step on the gas, like a real perm 4*4.... The car will have a totaly new character, they say.

    My first mod will however be stage 1 chip... and I'ts still hellofalot of money for no powergain, heh..

    Let me know if you need any translationhelp on the http://www.ace-competition.se/index.php?page=haldex page.
