    Diesel performance chip - A4 3.0 Tdi Quattro saloon 2011

    Hi guys, I am considering an A4 3.0 Tdi Quattro saloon 2011/12 model. unbelievable performance as standard, however, can anyone recommend a good 'plug in' performance box/chip. I had one before on my A4 2.0 143ps.....very unimpressed.....cost about £300.00 and did not work very well. only used it about twice!!!! Anyway, your help would be much appreciated. Thanks everyone

    Have you tried DTUK? The guy that runs it used to have a 3.0 TDI I think and got decent performance from it

    Better off getting it remapped. Those boxes just fool the rail into working at higher pressure.

    Can fill up a DPF with soot in less than 500 miles...

    better off with a remap mate, the plug ins are not all that good, you might well find that you ECU is locked and the only way it can be remapped is to take the ECU out and put it on communication pads to process it through the computer and remap it like that, you need somebody proper who will spend a lot of time doing it and are quite expensive so you know the job will be 100% right make sure the ECU and what it is protected by look exactly the same as it were before it is remapped so your warranty is not void. you may need a ECU software update before you get it done because if you get it done then you go to Audi for a service or something they might do an ECU software update which will clear all the remap data on your Ecu, the remap is 100% undetectable through audis machine but if the job is not proper they will be able to tell the Ecu has been tampered with if they happen to look at the ECU. where are you based ?

    The new boxes are more intelligent than that and plug into other sensors than just the rail. I think the new boxes have 3 connections in, RAIL, Boost, and something else.

    Nice one bud thanks for your advice...didnt want to mess warranty so thought 'plug in' would be better for me....I think remapp would be better from what i have read but just not sure??? Im in cornwall....one remapp specialist that appears to be good by all accounts is Celtic Tuning near St Austell?

    I think this is the one 240bhp up to 290bhp
    Diesel Tuning box for Audi A4 3.0 Tdi 240 Ps V6 Stage 2 (crd-t)

    If you send a message to ABYSS he might do you a bit of a deal on it as well as he is in a good mood about getting his new RS3 :-)


    I had one on my last car and the performance gains were very noticeable
    And I just noticed on their website 14 Day Money Back Guarantee so you can't really go wrong! lol

    Wish the remappers for my s4 would do that so I can see if its worth the high amounts they are charging

    I had my A4 3.0TDi DPF Quattro done last week, I had a BMW 330d re-mapped a few years ago and its quicker and smoother than that, it must be the push pull factor of the Quattro, I paid £250 for it, they took a copy of my file via the diagnostic port and came back the next day with the new file. MPG up too when i'm not throwing it about.

    I had a 335d M Sport BMW. Mental motor in standard form. 284 bhp. I fitted a 'racechip' to it. SOmewhere about 239 Euros from Germany. They have a website. I ended up with about 350 hp and 640 Nm of torque!!!!!!! Side by side with my mates E46 M3 there was no difference. I would recommend them. It was easy to fit but took a bit of fiddling to get the right settings. They were very helpful and fast to answer any questions. Which ever you go for it will make a great car even better.

    Have not bought it yet! I have a 61 plate 2.0TDi A4 S-line Quattro, but should have paid a little more and gone for the 3.0 TDI as a bit disappointed with the 2.0TDi. If I change it will be for the 3.0 TDi Quattro 'facelift' model in march . . .
