    When I was looking at buying an A3 I went for a test drive in a 2.0T and I was so impressed with the smooth power delivery and low end torque there wasn’t a hint of turbo lag.
    Comparing it to an S3 there is noticeable turbo lag so power delivery isn’t as smooth.

    So I would say 2.0T is actually the nicer engine to drive.
    But I bought a S3.

    I think people are confusing turbo lag with boost threshold. A smaller engine with a big turbo will need to rev a fair bit before the turbo will start producing alot of boost, this makes the power delivery appear further up the rev range with more of a surge. That isnt lag, lag is when you change gear or come of the gas and there are enough revs but the turbo now has to some back up to pressure and you get a lull before all the power is delivered again.

    I wasn't having a dig Eagle. I wanted to go also but couldn't make it. I'm free next sunday though. It seems if you organize things on here too far ahead they don't work out so well so why not short notice.

    I'm working next Sunday in Manchester but I drive right past the Trafford Centre on my way home about 3.30pm. So I'll be "there" anyway - if anyone's going to be about and fancied a brew and a chat and a few spins round the M60 or whatever just let me know. Its no effort for me at all. I'm not working the Sunday after so could do any time that day.

    Yeah I'm probably best leaving it this time mate. Xmas meet anyone? lol

    Edit: In fact Iggu you have Forge intake don't you? And when are you getting milltek fitted? If it's this week I'd like to have a look and listen to your motor if you don't mind!

    Are you getting a custom map on your bluefin with the extra mods?

    The Milltek won't be this week - they have none in stock so earliest will be late next week I'm told. Downer.

    I'll definitely be contacting our friend Jamie at SC once its installed though. I don't want anything too mental due to the posible fuel pump issue but a bit more is always nice !

    Let us know next time you're back and hopefully I won't be working, others will be fre and we can meet up then. And let us know how your new SC chip goes !!

    Ok yeah I'll see it another time.

    Bluefin is installing as I write this. Driving from here (Bedford) to my Mum's today so I'll have plenty of chances to try it out, and I'll let you know tonight on the original thread.

    Cheers mate.
