    Hello all,

    Iv had my Audi a3 1.8t sport 150bhp for just over a week now and I really like it, but it's just so slow! I'm used to driving my fiesta rs turbo or my escort rs turbo, and altho the fiesta has over 230bhp I would expect the Audi to b slower than it. But my escort rs turbo has only 156bhp and it just walks all over the Audi!!! And not just by a little, it's a lot!

    So what I'm wondering is, what's the best way to make the Audi more lively?

    Iv fitted a k&n but thats it, the rest is standard. I hav a fmic in my shed that I'm going to fit but apart from chipping it is there anything else I can do?

    The thing I like from my fords is when the turbo kicks in u no about it and in the Audi u no it's there but just not doing much, and be for someone says it the turbos fine!

    Plus what's the max safe boost level I can run?

    Thanks duk

    Research research research, A decent stage one remap will show great gains along side with forge 007p dv and if u fit the fmic will only get better I myself have had my fair share of ford turbos but still rate the audis for good reliability if u see my sig below i have the same car as u and just spent money in the right places but I'm looking for great fun and reliability good luck with the remap, I would recommend Rtech as they did mine and I loved it so going back this week for stage 2 !

    Cool cheers mate, so remap it is then, Iv been very lucky with my fords, so far as reliability goes as my 3 have been spot on, but fancied something newer for the trips back and forth to work! Plus my Audi was mega cheep as it was in a bump so is a bit mix matched at the mo,

    Your car looks lush in the pic mate, mine is yellow, or gold in my wife's eyes haha

    With very basic mods, and a decent stage 1 remap (I would also recommend r-tech) u will see around 195bhp with boost. Around 15-19psi, and that's all you will get out of the little k03 turbo, I am in the exact same boat as customboy with the same car, I already have stage 1 with a fair few mods done now and I wet the RS every time, I can even hold into my m8s 330 Beemer!!!!! You will love the boost when you have her remapped!!!! Flick through the stickys if u need more info!!

    Bonnet corners hit the windscreen in the bump! So far iv spent £300 on a whole new front end off another car in the right colour, so will sell silver bonnet, black wing and the new black front bumper, and c how much of my £300 I can make back! Got new windscreen thru my insurance and bought a new front panel for £40 as the guy didn't replace it when he put on the new parts, muppet lol

    All and all she should cost me around £4-500 to buy and put her right! Prob get that 4 the wheels alone lol

    So not a bad wee buy 4 my first ever Audi,

    For my £300 I got both front wings, bonnet,front bumper top and bottom,both wing mirrors and the plastic splash gard from under the pass wing. And p&p up to me in Aberdeen, I thought that wasn't to bad for all genuine parts in the right colour and in near mint condition, only the front bumper has a tiny we scratch

    Or hav I been over priced?
