Well i was all set to get a tt for the rest of the weekend which they were bringing all the way over from newcastle audi and then out of the blue i recived a phone call from the technician that had been working on my car for the last few weeks.
He basically told me they had updated a few software things this morning but nothing which should have affected it and then taken it for a run to warm it up, they then connected it up to the computer when they got back and no misfires were being logged other than an odd few. so they rolled in 2 other s3's from the forcourt and comapred them and they were the same as mine logging 2-3 misfires and then clearing. when speaking to audi head tech they seemed to confirm that an odd few misfires is ok for these engines at idle, and i must admit when i ran the tests on my dads ed30 gti that was logging odd ones too.
so the ecu had taken the misfires on cylinder 3 down from 30-40 a min to 9-10 a min, and then the injectors had taken it even lower still 5-6 a min. so its now down to normal for this engine.
i also logged it on vag com when i got home for a good 5 mins and it logged only 4 misfires on cylinder 1 which seems spot on to me, so then i fitted my new piaa bulbs and my forge intake.
I havent had time to give it a run out since but needless to say im now a happy bunny, especially now ive got a new set of injectors and an ecu for free.
i just need to get back up to star performance next week now and get reflashed, and i''ll be getting it rolling roaded before and after to check all is well too.
