    I have recently bought a black 1999 A3 1.8T 150 bhp and I was wondering where I can find out what kind of turbo these models had in them as standard.

    Also very new to the Audi seen and was wondering is mine a VAG engine?

    Any help appreciated and sorry for my stupidity!

    If you remap your car also you should see 190ish bhp with ease, a lot more pleasant to drive then :)

    Yeah I was thinking about a remap but was gona wait till I got exhaust system, front mounted Intercooler and dump valve first.

    How much will I be looking at for a remap?

    Between £250-£450 matey depending on what you go for, judging by your future plans I'd think you'd go for a custom which would be at the higher end of the estimate...
