    depends on what boost it was run to and if the engine had internals to push further???

    I have a GT30 here which is running 335bhp... its just a number relative to the boost its being run at currently.

    Was running O.E internals but car was had only covered 7k when the GT2876 was put on, I think it ran 1.2 bar from peak to the limiter but power came in with a big bang with loads over oversteer due to the uprated haldex controller this was nearly 5-6 years ago and as the cars were still fairly new with pre facelift cars still fetching £18k+ I don't think many folk did much other than stage 1 remaps so I think I must of been one of a handful who had started to tune the S3 back then...

    I think I handed over nearly £25k for my Dolphin grey 03 plate with every optional extra availave and only 5k on the clock at the time.....

    But as Bill has said its all relative to boost, fuel and timing settings to peak figures!

    Thread revival. Having a read through as doing a similar build.
    Only up to page 7 but good read and nice to see where some of the testing and development of today's standard mods have come from

    And ...... Finished reading

    What an epic thread.
    Hoping that I've already covered myself against some of the hurdles encountered here.

    Yeah man, this seems a Looooong time ago now. I'm glad that the experiences listed here were useful to you leigh, as with your PM if you let me know what links are dead I'll see if I can hunt them out.

    Seriously thinking about what to do with cars at the moment... My diesel is seeming a tad boring.
