    oil usage seems extreme!

    since revo 2 noticed a burning smell when driving hard (above 5000 rpm).

    oil was topped up 1100 miles ago and checked today only to find at minimum again!

    topped up with the shell long life (audi spec).

    any views?

    Also noticed car seems to have less torque on occasional days.

    cheers all.

    It could be a number of things like Turbo charger, worn piston rings, valve seals, leaky Oil cooler, bad compression ratio.

    If it's to do with the turbo it could be.....
    a restricted air inlet, a restricted exhaust, resitiction in the oil drain away from the turbo charger, crankcase ventilation problems or excessive crankcase pressure.

    Seems it's not expensive I would go and get a compression test done first just to rule that out. However because you say it has less torque I have a feeling that your remap may have shortened the life of your turbo and that it needs a rebuild with some better internals to handle the extra power your putting through it.

    I have heard these engines can burn oil excessively. I know someone with a 2008 2.0T FSI (standard) and he says it's terrible for it. I have a 2005 70k remapped (Jabbasport) and it's been brilliant and I drive mine very hard, track days too...strange

    well been out today with the brother in law who is a bit of a tech expert.........

    he has diagnosed i have a well known illness

    'Had the remap for a couple of weeks and got used to it'

    the burning smell was where i had spilt a little oil whilst topping up!

    so all is well!

    just the k04 to fit and fuel pump now.

    oh and the coilovers.

    Well you never said you spilt the oil, I mean come on how are we supposed to assist you if you dont tell us the truth, lol.

    Yeah that happens alot, getting used to the remap, but tbh 2 weeks seems rather quick, took me a long long time, then some days I would be like wow love this remap.

    The pump is 600 and the turbo will be between 1000-1500. Will need to uprate clutch also. Plus rolling road setup etc etc. Big cash for this next step. I've been told I'll only see 300bhp don't know how you've got 290bhp with your mods. Newman do some cams that will give 15bhp. Bigger injectors too, inlets and allsorts are available.

    Would like to get around feb/march time but then again it's not just the turbo I want so best off waiting I guess. It's all money. Me missus wants to buy a place together too which might put my plans back some what... Lottery tonight though lol

    __________________
    the dtm exhaust is already tuned for a little more noise im told, i would say no louder but more deeper sound, the missus didnt want to change from standard but is fine with it.

    still looks the same at rear to a degree.............
