    Smile Newby here....1.8T sport

    Hi all

    After a short , but very enjoyable GTV V6 ownership...which became broken far too quickly...i purchased a used 1.8T sport A4.

    So firstly, hello all..

    Secondly...what sensible upgrades can i do to this car, the car is very nice and comfy to drive, but a little short on ooomph...what can i do that will help me out and not make me a chav?

    cheers people

    As long as she is mechanicaly sound, you won't go far wrong with getting her mapped/Chipped. Thats the best bang for buck as it were. Around 50 bhp, and 45 Lbft torque can be expected

    Oh and welcome to the world of Audi ownership

    drizz has a 1.8TQS though, so its already making 180hp, and you wont get much more than 200-210 from the stock turbo.

    Hadn't thought of that, still should see a good 30 bhp or more, or A3 TQS went from 180 to 220 BHP On a flash tune

    No mate.. The S3 is a K04 and we only get the smaller K03.

    Ahhhhh ok i thought sport was the 180 tag not the quattro. Learn something everyday. Spose they need the extra 30bhp to run the quattro

    ^^ Thats right,^^ A K04-15 or a derivative of. None of the turbo's from the A3's or S3's or Seats etc . The worst is the k04-15 was never actually fitted to any car as std, its a Borg Warner factory upgrade. So it's worth ringing or Emailing the likes of Scroll Products or CR turbo's for upgrade, Hybrid options
