I set out this morning looking forward to having my car remapped and whilst I've made some healthy gains I'm a little concerned.
I have an Audi A4 1.8T BEX engine which should be around 188hp standard. Car has only done 66k miles so it may have lost a few but on the dyno standard it made 167.9hp and 190ft/lb of torque. So torque is slightly up over standard figures but power is 20hp down?! Most confused, especially as it is a coolish day so I thought I'd see good results. I was a little gutted when they said what power it made standard.
So after a stage 1 revo I now have 197.6hp and 246ft/lb torque. So torque is spot on but what the hell is going on with my power? It is niggling at me as I've never had any vehicle dyno 20hp down on standard figures.
Guys who did the map said the car is running really nicely and not to worry that it is down on standard power. I'm a man who likes his numbers to be right though!!
Anyone else had a BEX engine put out low figures? Something can't be right surely?
I'm wondering if my ECU had a map on it for the lower power 1.8T? How would I find this out?
My ECU number is 8E0 909 518 AS and revision 0003
