    Long time away from the forum....but have decided to show the A3 some love again :)

    So...in with my 1st question....

    I'm thinking about getting involved in a liquidS3 and am aware that some of the data may not populate based on the engine code that I have. For those that own AGU engines and also vagcom's, can you confirm whether or not you are able to pull the following data.....(i understand that if it can be pulled with a vagcom then it will display with a liquid)

    Engine Power
    Torque
    Boost Pressure
    Mass Air Flow
    Air Fuel Ratio
    Air intake Temp
    Exhaust Temp
    Dyno Plot
    Timing Correction Plot
    Speed timing
    Fault Codes

    The A3 is going in for some AP coilovers, powerflex bits, Forge spacers, TIP and some other goodies at AMD tomorrow so I expect I will be lighting up the forums with questions and pictures very shortly!!!

    Cheers in advance....

    Hi mate, I know the AGU can't display boost pressure or exhaust temp, I'm fairly sure it can do everything else, although I think AFR is show in lamda values of 0-1

    Engine Power - if it's worked out via g/s then probably
    Torque - don't think so
    Boost Pressure - no
    Mass Air Flow - yes
    Air Fuel Ratio - narrow band, so not even worth it. tiny voltage change
    Air intake Temp - yes
    Exhaust Temp - no
    Dyno Plot - if no toque reading then I'd say no.
    Timing Correction Plot - yes
    Speed timing - yes if you mean 0-60 etc
    Fault Codes - yes

    You will see torque and the dyno plot.

    AGU engines are good for power and stronger than later A3 engines, so don't be dissapointed. I like the simpler approach personally with non of the emission stuff found on on later cars.

    freegeek, which is the measuring block for torque?

    You can see torque on block 122 but I don't use it, I calculate bhp and torque from the maf and rpm as it seems to be more accurate that the torque given in block 122.
