    Hi!

    I'm looking into a Re-map. You seem to be very competatively priced and have good feedback.

    My question is though, looking at various data i've trawled through via the internet etc the AMK engine and BAM engine are identical. Is the only difference the boost pressure upped a little to produce the 225Hp over the 210Hp for the AMK.?

    Why then is it not possible to see better results from a mapped AMK as the horsepower gains are more taking into consideration the 15Hp extra that the BAM has ontop of the AMK. Are both engines capable of the 270 "ish" Hp remap??

    So hypothetically in total the 225 would be capable of say 270Hp an increase of 45Hp.

    The AMK hypothetically capable of the same 270Hp giving an increase of 60Hp.

    Am i on the right lines here or am i totally off the mark???

    Hello,

    The 225bhp cars have different injectors, turbo's, fuel pump etc. So they are not the same as the 150bhp and 180bhp hence why you cannot get the same power from just the re-map.

    The 225 and 210 had different maps as standard and afew other slight changes. hence why you can only get about the same power out of them.

    Hi Ben

    I'm not sure if you've mis-understood me a little.

    I'll try to explain better.

    I have an AMK engine S3 Quattro. With 210Hp (209 exact).

    I'm unsure of what "exact" differences are between my AMK engine and the BAM engine.

    Does it mean that my AMK engine after a re-map will produce (hopefully) 270Hp, the same as what a BAM engine produces once it's been re-mapped.??

    Morning,

    your AMK engine will go up to the same power as a re-mapped BAM engine.

    Is that the info you were after?
