    Hi,
    I have know decided to upgrade my Audi S3 -00 with some kind of ECU re-map.
    I will probably go for the Revo since it seems to be a good choice.
    Does anyone know if it is possible to reach the RPM limit at 7200 rpm on the 6th gear with a Revo re-map?
    I have talked to an S3 owner in sweden that has tuned his car with a chip from Dahlback racing and he can reach the rpm limit on the 6th gear and get a top speed of 174mph (280km/h). /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif
    Reason why I ask is because I'm more into getting a Revo re-map since the original ECU doesn't need to be replaced then.
    Br, Kapten

    Well to achieve the speed in the right column in your average road car you need roughly the power in the left column

    Mph--BHP
    30---5
    40---8
    50---12
    60---19
    70---27
    80---38
    90---52
    100--69
    110--90
    120-114
    130-143
    140-176
    150-215
    160-258
    170-307

    So to get to a true 175mph it must be one hell of a chip!

    For S3:

    Final drive in 6th gear - 3.32:1
    6th gear ratio - 0.91:1
    With 225/45-17 tyres
    Rev limit of 7200

    That gives a theoretical top speed in 6th gear of 177mph

    So you'll need a fair bit more than 300bhp to come close to the limiter in 6th, or maybe a very long hill /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    LOL...

    No, because its not "an average road car"

    But it'd be worth a try /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
