    What throttle body is that? Interested to know what other mods it has and the haldex ECU upgrade sounded like a very nice toy.

    Well, if he hasn't changed the turbo, then I would guess that it would be down to a map with agressive boost levels.

    Wouldn't that effect torque more than BHP though ? If anything BHP may reduce as inlet temps would be higher at high revs wouldn't they?

    ..that car was I think the only one that ran with Quattro enabled too so I'm not sure how you can compare results between it and the other S3s.

    Good lad! Wanted to have a chat with him about the haldex mod but never got the chance...

    He got an MTM clutch too? Didn't look easy to manouvre onto the rollers using the biting point.

    uprated clutch/ light weight flywheel

    underdriven pulleys
    bespoke exhaust/cats/3" downpipe

    aggressive boost

    lots and lots of other bits modded

    its not unusuall at all for his car to hit 290 + bhp and way into 300 lbft torque.

    I first saw this car at the AMD Bicester meet last year or the year before and it's mint all the way down to the armorfend paint protection. To say it's been modded is an understatement, the list he showed me filled a sheet of A4!

    Just a quick message to some you guys who had to have the fuse removed to disengage the haldex clutch:

    Today I notice that when pulling from a junction (especially when turning) I would hear one of rear wheels, wheelspin. When I got home I ran an Autoscan with Vagcom to had plenty of error codes come up relating to the ABS and Haldex controllers. I cleared the errors and all seems to be fine now.

    If you have access to Vagcom, just run a quick scan to see if you have any errors also.

    I will try and post up the error codes that I had later.

    Ohh dear, Mines going in for some warranty work soon and if they see a million error codes questions are going to be asked!

    Anyone with VAG-COM in or around the Cambridge area?

    Can’t say I have noticed any noise from the 4wd so heres hoping its an isolated insolent!
