    the differences are throughout the entire car, from springs & dampers, lightened wishbones etc. when it comes to the engine, the S3 is running a K04 turbo where the 2.0T is running a K03. the S3 also has uprated engine internals so can take much more power. over all its much more then just a different map

    yep, think thats the ones, on the S3 they are good for reliability as a daily drive up to about 450 bhp & lbft

    Better uprate your internals as well. Could tip you over the edge and bend a rod...

    I have been woundering about this my self.

    I have a 2,0TFSI Q DSG, what is the max safe tuning for this engine and drivetarain?
    Are there any differents on the DSG box too (read S-tronic)
    Super happy at the moment but are plning to oppgrade soon. See on tuner site that the 260Bhp i a common result.

    The wishbones are the same, only the bushes are different-solid stiffer ones on the S3.
    S3 has K04 turbo vs K03, bigger injectors, better FMIC, remotely located DV, lower compression pistons ( rods are the same I think), different cams, shorter throw gears shift, and stiffer spring/ damper rates also and of course bigger brakes.
