    Red face My A3 "Matilda" Progress - Oil Burner

    First got her about a year ago and she looked like this.


    Standard 04 2.0 TDI 140 S-Line in 'Ebony Schwarz' black! Loved the DSG and comfort the Audi gave over my EP3 Type R. Just wasn't quick enough plus that double grille had to go!


    In chronological order:







    Back end was a bit plain so got this bad boy:





    And Some of these:





    The back end was de-badged, de wipered and added some of these:





    It was finished (the back end at least)







    Also that front bumper had to go to make way for the one piece. Bought it for a very reasonable price from a man down south, he also sold me a very cheap turbo that I could use as spare:





    It came up to my birthday so i got this:






    Headed down south for a group remap for a very cheap rate with audi-sport. Took a while for the ECU to adjust but was an incredible difference. Gotta love the oil burners for untapped potential!


    So a few months down the line had some money and time then my friend linked me to this on eBay:





    Fitted it:






    Got the modding bug again, doubled up by my friend nagging me about what else i could do so you know that spare turbo? Sent it down to CR Turbo Engineering who said that they could Stage 2 the turbo. Got it back today!! Here it is:







    Even my cat loved it:





    That's it so far! Next after bankrupting myself I must save for a remap Hoping for about 250bhp 400ft-lbs of torque. I've been warned the DSG will struggle so looking for a custom map so I can get it limited in 1st and 2nd gear. But i've yet to phone Awesome to find out what my best option is.


    Ways away in the future I shall get coilies (since i'm going to be a student as of the end of next month) For low and fast :D

    Looking for some help to fit the turbo, anyone done it before? Any info would be appreciated!

    Much love.

    Got this from the bay earlier this week





    Also had my turbo installed. Since i've not had it mapped it's just laggier... But we'll see how she fairs with a good map coming soon hopefully!

    Just had it mapped by Simon at Sitech Racing, cannot commend him enough. Amazing guy with more know how than God.


    Booked in for 3, on the rollers and set up for 10 past 3.


    Explains whats going to happen. Runs it on the rollers, take a few attempts as he has never done a DSG box before. But we get the car up and get a reading.


    198.0bhp@4,057rpm at the fly. Respectable considering the turbo and FMIC hadn't been mapped on. Just the Milltek TDE.


    So then off the map was sent to DNA Tuning.


    Back it came, uploaded to the car and ran again.





    Not bad! Respectable 240.8bhp@4163rpm


    Not only had he mapped my car for me but cleaned out my throttle body and drilled and plugged my inlet manifold for a boost gauge so he could get a boost reading! He had to drill as there is no external pressure reading. All VAG diesels are apparently vacuum read and the ECU calculates the boost. Now all I need to do is to get a boost gauge, pod and fit one Running 27psi. Asked 'His guy' at DNA tuning if I could go higher and was advised against it if i was happy which I was, so I was on my merry way. And boy does my car pull!





    All the while he was telling me what was going on and to have a look around the unit. Simon was a quality guy! Couldn't recommend him enough!

    As already asked, what is that rear valance, where did you buy it from, how much and is it a straight swap/fit?
