    I have an X reg A3 1.8T Sport.
    Over the last few weeks I have noticed when i stick my foot down the car will blip on the power, its not turbo lagg as this has never happened before. CAn feel the turbo put some power in then as if it ran out of steam before keeping constant power as I put foot down?!

    If I keep my foot on the pedal and watch the rev counter the revs dip ever so slightly while the car power drops ever so slightly also.

    It feels like the car is not getting pressure maybe and they can feel it kick back in again, its weird one and had no warning light or anything?!?!

    anyone know about this or had before?!?!? :icon_thumright:
    cheers, all help galdy taken!!

    Get it on VAG-Com. Could be a faulty MAF or Coil Pack been put under too much load when the turbo kicks in. Vag it to make sure.
