    VCDS Block 120 Logs on the S3 after Bluefin

    Guys,

    Can anyone shed some light on this.

    Prior to getting my bluefin I run some block 120 logs on VCDS on my S3, after converting the logs etc I came back with a BHP figure of 278bhp, which sounds around right for a standard S3. I ran it a few time and kept getting roughly the same on each run, so it was consistant.

    Thought I would give it a bash now I have the bluefin on...I have done 3 seperate logs and it keeps coming back with the figure of 380bhp! Now obvoiusly I would love to believe this but know it must be a load of toss.

    I remember reading I think in the past that block 120 becomes innacurate after a remap, is that right enough?

    Cheers,

    Terry

    I agree, I did this ages ago too and got some odd results. I had also read somewhere that the value logged is not reliable once remapped.

    PS - Terry - how do you find the Bluefin ? I'm half considering putting Milltek on and going for Stage 2
