    MRC Tuning in Banbury Oxford is without hesitation THE place to go. They have won the Audi Tuning awards about 5 times in a row I think now. Very impressed with what I have seen first hand and heard from many others.

    I'd avoid MRC tbh, they messed up my car big style.

    On a 2.7TT fine, 1.8 t NO.

    around a yr ago now, and 3 visits , add that to 3 mafs, because they were determined it was that at fault. The car became almost undriveable due to a huge missfire mid range due tothem flooding the engine with fuel at that point. I have had the map anylysed and tbh it was a lazy map, not the custom map that was paid for.

    Manure ?? SP or whatever his name is, and Doug was the one that "diagnosed" a faulty MAF, despite them being new. I chased faults and an aparent lack of G/S missing from the car for ages, and gave up.

    Found myself som decent 1.8t tuners and havent looked back

    Badger 5 or R-tech for 1.8t, they between them have revolutionised the 20vt tuning scene

    very nice spec, why only the k04-015? You've got an engine capable of 360bhp on a good sized turbo? Yet be running less than you could get on a 1.8t?

    R-tech or b5 for mapping without a doubt...

    ive got it booked in with R-tech for next week :yes: ive gone with the k04-015 because this build was never going to go down this route. my engine dropped oil pressure & through a rod & the build took off from there. i know its not the best turbo for my engine spec but i should get really fast spool & good torque throughout the rev range & that is quite important to me, im most likely to go with a bigger turbo at a later date maybe an atp eliminator but im sure i will be happy with the performance for now

    Do yourself a favour, if you go larger, skip the elim and go full frame.
