Evening people on audi sport,
I've had few friends that have been on here for a while, seems like a helpful and genuine place to take a look and hopefully get a bit of help and gain knowledge of the vag brand
I have a 2000 W reg leon cupra 180 hp 20vt which I am loving ownership of besides crap mpg!! About 27-28 of 50-50 town and dual carriage way with only a few bursts of fun
It hasn't been quite as good as it was pull wise when I got it a couple of weeks ago I think althought not totally sure now looknig back. I ran it on v power when I first got it but I just do too many miles to afford it unless people really reckon more mpg is actually likely to be possible. I dont however reckon it's just ive become used to it and shell 95 is totally pants really but im always ready to be corrected-quick addition, I believe I reconnected the egr pump at the front of the engine back up a few days previously. Could this affect things?
I had it put on vag com yesterday and did a data logged drive where the mass aif flow rate was about for example 140 kg/s of air when the chap with the vag com said it should have been higher and recommended a new maf-ive fitted and no difference. It was really flat in 4th 5th and 6th. I know its only 180 hp but Id expect more pull than what it has. It has a fair bit of pull in 1,2 and 3 but not quite maybe as lively as it should be, i only drive one petrol one before deciding to get this one.
No fault codes were present-engine wise and the boost was being generated to the 0.6-0.7 odd bar it should be apparently according to the log
It also flutters a bit on gear changes which I wasn't aware was the norm, I assumed it was pretty silent.
I have a typical mann air filter in there, took it out quickly just to pop up the road and try the gears and it didnt seem to make any difference.
Has anyone any ideas what may be causing it to be flat, is it really likely to be the fuel making that much difference?
also one of the coilpacks had a slightly higher knock value than the other 3, i dont have a clue if in anyway this mayb be linked to slightly poor airflow figures but thought I'd mention it.Does anyone know if my APP engine code could qualify for replacement packs if that was even offered? seat dealer said my reg has had no data attached to it for a recall of any sort
Hopefully it's nothing major but I look forward to peoples thoughts/opinions
Thanks in advance
