    840 is about standard but I have set mine at 800. Seems fine at that but wasn't too bad at 840 !

    Check out this but ignore the comment about 'version 908'. Still works with version 11.11.5

    how to turn tick over up

    Running mine anywhere between 740-780 depending on what done to the car at that point. Anything above 810rpm seems to make things a bit 'lumpy'.

    Definitely quieter & smoother, although go too low & it has the opposite effect.

    Put mine down to 800 for AGES and it ran great, but just had to INCREASE to 925rpm (can't seem to get it higher than that) as judder at idle returned ,
    Probably due to cambelt stretching a bit, I will need new cambelt done before summer
    I'm sure I heard timing should get checked 1/2 way through cambelt life cycle

    Cambelt stretched ? How come has it been replaced before or would this be the first cambelt change?

    I was sure my mkIV GOLF tdi was @ 50000 and when we bought the A3 a m8 of mine said timing belts should be 75000 or 5years, so I done it at 60000,
    power figs were unknown as I used a powergate unit to change map and car drove great for 40000ish miles on std turbo, but after a problem with my hybrid turbo,map was switched back to standard so I can go down custom map route
