    Please excuse my ignorance.

    I just saw a post in an A3 thread regarding remaps of the S3 engine, the poster referenced a review he read of the VW Golf GTI edition 30 with the same map.
    I was under the impression the 30 was a VW mapped 2.0T engine, and that the S3 was really only the same block and head as the 2.0T with bigger turbo, intercooler, strengthened internals and a fruity exhaust.
    Can anyone clarify this for me and maybe suggest any modest improvements to my A4 2.0T sline special edition Q Avant (220PS).

    No, the ED30 engine is a slightly detuned S3 engine with a smaller intercooler but it has the same turbo and uprated internals as the S3. Your 220hp 2.0T will remap to 250ish hp whereas the ED30 will do 300hp.

    Wow, cheers for that.
    I had no idea. All that potential power and only two wheels to deal with it.
    I think I would have had one if they'd had 4motion.
    20:20 Hindsight, wonderful!
