    Thanks it does sond a little like the systems that "trick" the air flow sensor into believing it is cooler to get more power.

    I also found this:-

    http://www.awesome-gti.co.uk/audi%20a499/engine.html

    It's a box you plug into the diagnostic port and they claim 172bhp from the 130bhp engine. It more pricier at Ł495+vat, how safe is it to use this? is the engine capabile of taking 172bhp has anyone used this system?

    thanks

    I've heard bad things about Tuning boxes. I would get it remapped properly.

    Products like the one click from AMD upload a generic map to the ECU. You then have the option of taking it back off and replacing it with the original I think.

    Most good remaps of the 130 TDi engine will get you somewhere near the 170bhp mark. There should be no problem with the car coping with the extra power though its hard to put the power down on a 2wd car, not a problem you'll have if you own a quattro.

    As above though go to a reputable company and you should be fine. Try a search on here as there are loads of recommendations from happy customers.
