    hi new on here and new to the s3,

    ive been looking into upgrades and come across a boost controler from micro dynamics on deamon tweeks which is designed for the vag engine, was wondering weather anyone has one or weather its necasary if im going to get a custom re-mapp?

    alsothe car grinds into second gear when cold is there a common problem or is it likely to just be the 2nd gear syncro nackered.

    I would stick with getting a custom remap, rather than just upping the boost

    kev, iv found the same thing. my gear changes seem to be shocking especially when the cars cold, have to really plant your foot to the floor when changing

    That could be the synchromesh could also be gear oil getting low wrong viscosity or clutch.but more than likely i would say synchro
