    Re-mapping/chipping APU

    Been trying to find some concrete info on this but none the wiser.

    So....what power is a remap likely to see on the standard turbo? and does it pose any risk to a 160k mileage engine?

    well, nothing is for free. You will put more strain on it iof you drive it like you stole it everywhere.

    you are looking sub 200 BHP on chipped power. Best bang for buck you can do.

    AS for the mileage, mine has over 140k on it and i am looking at big turboing it at some point. I have however changed oil pump, and put upgraded rods inside to see if i can help it remain together

    As byzan has said, best bang for buck.... the usual figures quoted are around the 190bhp mark. ive pushed over that with my APU, but only because i have a different turbo to stock on it.

    I had my 1.8T (AGU) A3 remapped, and was one hell of a difference from stock.
    Currently rolling in a SKODA!!!
