    Hi guys, looking at buying a red 97 a3, its been rr at 218 bhp and 260.8lb/ft torque.
    Dont know too much about it as the person selling is not the previous main owner, its got miltek, fmic, dump valve but dont know what else.
    any idea what sort of stage this would be with that power and would it be a very quick car?
    Had a few powerful cars before but all been pretty big cars

    Many thanks

    Ben

    Hi Bn
    I think it depends what kind of powerful big cars you have driven,this is a hatchback and nippy and also 15 years old.

    For that power it would have had the turbo changed for a K03s... AGU's make 200hp tops on the std turbo, later K03s turbos are a popular retro fit...

    An A3 with that power will feel pretty quick... stage 2 (or more likely an R-Tech custom map)
