a3 2.0tdi 140 2004 High milage turbo stage 2 or 3 Worth doing???
hi guys got rid of my m3 e46 for a a3 2.0tdi 140, 140k miles full audi service history so its been looked after.
i had it mapped to 172bhp 2days after getting it and after a service, drove 300miles and the gearbox started making a horrible noise in second gear, (maybe the remap i was thinking :S) took it straight to the gearbox place where they said the bearing has come out and will need machining so it wont happen again £400!! they said they get about 3 a week with the audis, maybe a design fault??
Now when the gearbox is done im putting some bbs 19" and lowering her on coilovers, so should look nice.... The main question is, is it worth doing stage 2 or 3 with this kind of milage? ive been told its "nothing for these engines" but came here to ask you guys to see what you think
thanks for your time
