    Hey,
    ok remapping to 150 from 90 may be a slight problem, not too sure if its possible. In most cases 33% increase is about the best.

    As for retrofitting air con and a trip computer, i think it would probably be cheaper to buy another car!!! lol

    But let me know cos i kinda miss air con in my A3!!! :cold:

    you should look into hybrid turbo's and higher pressure injectors that some companies i forget which are offering as upgrades
