    A while ago I chipped my 210Hp APY S3.
    never had it on the rollers, but is was very quick.

    Yesterday I had a bit of spare time, so I put it on the dyno.

    The results were shocking!

    The mods:
    n249 delete
    Empty Cats
    Lighter flywheel
    600x300 Fmic
    Wideband Ecu+lambda

    1378707_4792496069600_1478700669_n.jpg

    291Hp, and 479Nm!!!!

    I say rod time, and for now downtune asap.
    I'm driving it around for almost 3 months now, so guess i'm lucky with the rods.

    This is the 8P section :p But quick flywheel question.
    Does a lighter flywheel help gain power? like changed from a DMF to a single?

    Ow **** haha. Can it be moved to the right section?

    You do not gain any power, but it drives quicker.

    Pick-up is normally slighter fast due to the weight of a DMF. The engine normally falls back to idle a lot quicker again due to the weight of the DMF being able to maintain the revs.
