    S3 8P-Bluefin remap

    Hi guys

    Im moving over from a S3 8L 225 in the new year just want to know if this bluefin remap tool thing is the best bhp for the cash on remaps etc.

    Im sure i read somewhere it gives around 330-350bhp on a standard car for around Ł1000?

    Anything else which is as good, in the future i will be doing the exhaust with either a cat back or sports cat or may even remove it all together, decent filter and maybe a bigger turbo what ever is recmommended really.

    a grand for a remap sounds a little expensive and i really doubt you will get that level of power from just a map without doing a couple other mods, if you look at my sig you will see what mines producing and the map ive got is a very strong map

    I've had a ITG cai and a custom map done and I'm producing 340 bhp. Nice smooth power and no clutch problems.

    Also got the uprated HPFP not fitted yet. Then going to get Hi Flow cats and exhaust and probably new clutch.

    To get me to 340bhp cost Ł700.

    thats the this, to get that level of power you will need at least a CAI as the normal induction system is way to restrictive
    if your thinking of a new clutch im in the process of doing a group buy for the uprated Sahcs clutch, should have a price in the new couple days

    Thanks Buddy

    The Guy that does my tuning will be sorting my clutch when I need it. He knows a company that will make me one to suit my needs and will feel almost OEM but will take 50% more power.

    ooo nice!!
    time to get more power of your car then! my tuner does custom mapping as well, i was going to get the power upped in the new year when i completed my TBE, but now my clutch is slipping, had to re-think my plans

    EDIT: ah just seen you guys uses a dyno dynamics... thats what mine uses haha, always a reassuring sign!

    Hi there....the realistic maximum from an S3 with the stock K04 turbo is about 360-380bhp,and for that,you'd be looking at the following...

    exhaust,cold air intake,HPFP,clutch and remaps,and the total would be approaching Ł4k in all.

    You may also want to consider brakes and suspension.

    If you're looking to about 330bhp,you can do that for about Ł1200,but you'd be needing a new clutch soon after.

    A big turbo kit plus fitting will set you back over Ł4.5k,but you will need the brakes and suspension for that.

    Software...I have nothing against Bluefin,but am very happy with Revo.
