    I have a Steinbauer tuning box for a 163Bhp engine wich i believe your's is, i was using that on a AKE 180 bhp without issues just a touch smokey...the box is fully adjustable and it does what it says on the tin ! Drop me a pm if interested, swapping the v6 tdi engine to a 1.9 tdi which will require custom mapping hence it's not needed anymore. The beauty with the tuning box is you can remove-it at any moment and can be sold to get some money back !

    What's the engine code ? You might have a very old engine designation wich was 155Bhp engine code AYM ? Audi dropped the 150Bhp lump from 2000 as it's been replaced by later 180Bhp engines (in quattro guise) and the FWD models got 155Bhp engines then later ones went to 163Bhp in the cabriolet and allroad alongside the 180Bhp lumps (they got revised heads with cam rollers)...However the box still works fine on your engine as the difference is only in the tune/map !

    AYM is a detuned version of the AKE 180 Bhp engine, they are good engines. The difference is rods, injectors, injector pump, mapping and a few more bits and bobs. The AYM has been designed as a Euro 4 version of the old AFB 150 Bhp engine...There might be a few more differences wich i can point only by comparing them side by side, still tuneable in every respect.

    The 150Bhp tunes well to 180-190 Bhp with just a remap or tuning box. When audi introduces a new, more powerfull engine they do things a little different hence they use stronger rods, lower compression ratio, larger nozzles and optimised ECU program and often a different turbocharger. They don't just chiptune or remap their existing models ! Quattro models also get a better injector pump wich can pump more fuel at higher pressure and also larger nozzles as well !

    well, my main idea to get it running better so i get more MPG out of it but if i get more power and torque then I'm double happy
