    Engine Mods 170 tdi

    I drive a Audi A3 2.0tdi 170bhp 2006

    Im Looking to Mod the engine and i really need specific answers as ive been searching hard and cant find all the answers i need :P


    Exhaust

    Im looking to get an exhaust but i can only find a miltek for the 140? will it still be the best exhaust for the 170 and here is the exhaust i found: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AUDI-A3-2-0-TD...item35a7c1bc24
    Is this the best on for my car and i dont really know much about it but would i just buy this go to a garage and fit it? or do i need to do anything else? would you reccomend a de-cat and would it pass its MOT?

    Re-map

    Im wanting to go with REVO for a remap as i trust them and they are round the corner, would i get the exhuast first or this? if i can the exhuast after this would it mess with the re-map?

    Induction Kit/Panel Filter

    Should i get one of these, does it increase the performance by much? does it change the sound by much? Which one should i get induction kit or panel filter? which one?







    Sorry for the amount of questions its just i dont want to make many mistakes and please try to answer as many questions as you can. What else would you recommend or is a must do with the 170tdi?



    Much Appriciated if you could help

    Hey mate I have stage 1 on mine whick consists of:

    miltek dpf delete pipe
    miltek cat back exhaust (140 fits fine)
    green cotton pannel filter ( induction kits lose power on diesels due to the head under the bonnet)
    custom code remap

    and the car is a total animal now so quick n pulls like a train

    the dpf delete is a must as this n a remap is were all the important gains come from

    hope this helps

    Hey Chris,

    If I was to add a green cotton panel filter, would it make any differences?

    when you mean stage 1 do you mean stage one remap from revo?

    and then you have added the exhuast etcc yourself

    and is that exhuiast i have linked the one i need to dpf delete? or do i need to buy something ontop of that?


    also where did you get your filter?

    If you know and trust Revo, why not go ask them?

    If there is any MOT problems just put the DPF pipe back on again with a standard map, simple really. If mapped properly there shouldn`t be any extra lights on the dash. PD140 and 170 have the same front end mate so no reason not to fit maybe just need the bracket weilded in a slightly different place. If you want a Twintercooler i have one that i was going to fit to my car if your interested.http://audi-sport.net/classifieds/sh...rcooler&cat=15
    06 Audi 2.0 PD140 Sport TDI Quattro S-LINE.

    Now stripped and playing with an uprated Cryo treated engine fitted with bigger turbo,water/methanol,uprated injectors etc etc.Wanting 400 bhp and 500 lb torque.

    Other car 500+ bhp MK4 Golf R32 turbo.

    Cheers Mikey

    Forge wanted my car as a demo for a new Twintercooler for the PD170 - The Designer in Glocs said thay cannot confirm as yet if the standard one (Designed & Tested for PD140) will fit or work?

    Will have to get some specs first.

    Cheers for the offer will keep it in mind :-)
