    Performance

    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking for some info i have a 1999 A3 Sport 1.8
    which seems to lack somewhat in the acceleration department
    although it drives great it just seems pretty flat on the uptake i've already
    had a MAF fitted recently due to it having a intermittent flat spot, which i must admit did make a very slight difference but still seems relativley flat.
    I was thinking of getting the ECU remapped but to be honest i don't know how much it would cost and who actually does it in the Glasgow area...?
    and would it really make that much of a difference if say it was the camshaft that was worn instead..?

    Any info thanks
    If idiots could fly the internet would be an airport...

    Is it the Turbo or the non Turbo?

    remapping isn't really worth it on a non turbo

    It's a non turbo guys
    does this mean it's not worth remapping is there an alternative that can give me a bit more OOmmphhh so to speak i don't suppose dropping a fast road cam in will make much difference either as it would have to be remapped for that as well i suppose...???

    I've only ever seen cams for the turbo, it would make a difference if you can find someone that'll do one combined with a chip for the non turbo.
