    Gen 3 steering rack s3

    Hi,

    I am fitting a gen 3 steering rack to my s3, upgrading from a gen 2.
    i have read on the Ross tech site and other places that I will need to get the new rack flashed with the appropriate characteristic curve and until then it will work with a linear curve.

    my question is will the car drive ok on a linear curve?

    i fitted a brand new gen 2 rack a few years ago and I never had a curve flashed to that so I'm guessing it could drive exactly the same as I'm used to anyway which will be fine as far as I'm concerned.

    hopefully someone will know,

    cheers

    Just incase anyone does try this it works fine with no curve flashed (Kl. 000) It may be a tiny bit lighter when on the motorway.

    getting the curve downloaded on Thursday so it will be as it is intended.

    Also between some gen versions, looms are required.
