    Just got back from chipped uk and WOW :):arco:
    The car is just how Audi should have made it. The throttle response is much better with no flat spots and the car seems to accelerate seemlessly, it just digs in and goes all the way to the redline[​IMG]

    I know the economy will increase from experience, but i am too busy enjoying the new found lease of life to worry about trivial things like economy,:whistle2:

    She is a 2001 A3 1.8 TQS with an alledged 180bhp std. The rolling road found it to be 163 and all runnig well, they proceeded to flash the ECU and reset the throttle body to release 210 BHP @ 6135 and 227 torques @ 4035:yahoo:

    Boost is now maxing out at 18psi and holding 14psi, much better than the 9psi she had before, all this with a K03s

    Also its nice and quiet to drive thanks to my boyfriend for changing the exhaust manifold after we discovered it had a "slight" crack in it:banghead:

    sounds pretty good, and a good power figure for just 18psi of boost!

    My ko3S runs at 24Psi of boost, and produces 290lbft and 240bhp, so with a few more supporting mods, you have scope for a good extra chunk of power again in the future if you feel the need!

    I loved the feeling driving home after my first revo map, feels like a brand new car again!

    Go enjoy it, and report back just how few miles you get on your first tank of fuel! I got about 170 to a full tank :)

    It's not always that bad by any means! If anything, once you get used to the power and learn not to just hoof it everywhere, I'd say it's more economical. It's just that first tank after the remap, where it's so exciting and new, you just want to floor it everywhere!

    Mines around 240bhp now and I still get 360-400 miles to a tank

    Hi There,

    Was another great day, glad you are pleased with the remap. Also i'm sure we'll find those lost horses somewhere! LOL!

    Cheers, Mark

    Mark, explain more about finding these horses, do you think we could do mine again to make use of the FMIC and high flow exhaust manifold and possibly larger injectors to release more power? PM if necessary

    Myne is a KO3S also. I hope to continue to better my car but i need to do it gradually as I need to get used to the power!! Going from a 1.2 nissan micra to a A3 1.8tqs is a bit of a leap lol

    I loved driving home it felt frigging great. As for the miles to a tank its usually about 350 and i managed 145 :whistle2:

    As you said though once im used to it I will only use the power for things like blowing chavy ickle scrotes in paxos and coursers off the lights and having them look and see its a girl woot!!!:racer:

    Sounds good! Mine already boasts a REVO ST1. I brought the car 'standard', so was pretty gutted to find out that it already had one. (still considering a flush/re-remap)

    Nice car, BUT, you must get rid of the swirlies!!! (hiding the true Purple Princess potential...)
