    new guy

    Hi guys just joined up for some info,

    Having just bought an A3 1.8T but have got some boost issues,

Last night on the way home, didnt like going over 3k revs so ive turned down the boost using this bolt drove fine for 10 miles, now ive got a few additional issues around the exhaust/cat being noise in boost & it not boosting up as quick as before. any idea's?

    heres what ive adjusted



    Basically went out on a test drive a few nights ago car was running a dream, boosted fine no issues, came back to collect last night paid the guy, drove home on the way back thought it had gone into limp mode not wanting to go over 3k revs in 3rd, so costed it home and a mate suggested turning down the controller / bolt so we did and it drove fine for about 10 miles.

    I then took her out for a drive and it got very noisy in boost like the exhaust was blowing / no back box and boost felt weak. Im going to check for boost leak but would adjusting the controller bolt cause any issues?? what have i done wrong here?

    Thanks

    They are generally qite quick at approving them. I think if you get to 15 posts on the forum you can post on other sections and pm other
    users. Have a look in the general chat section of the forum, should be able to add to your post count in there.

    There is a good section in the general section about music and movies. Its not spam, its really quite interesting about what ohers watch
    and listen too. You could give your opinion in there and get some extra posts at the same time.
