    There's a screw on the turbo itself which is labelled Faster and Slower.

    It's a modern car which is controlled by a computer. The only way to get the boost to come in sooner is by reprogramming the ECU to tell it to, and unless you know what you're doing you're best off either purchasing a diesel tuning box (if one is available for the A3) or getting the car professionally remapped.

    No offense meant here mate but you sound like your not sure what your doing, are you sure its wise to be messing around with something that could cause damage to your engine should you choose the incorrect settings?
    Bear in mind bypassing the electronics on the car to induce a higher boost level (not sure how you would do this anyway) will probably put the car into limp home mode and possibly cause damage.

    With respect mate, text speak is frowned upon here. It's difficult to read and you'll find that people are much more willing to put the time in to help help if you type things properly.

    I doubt you'll find anyone here who will recommend a shortcut route to increasing your boost as we don't want to be the ones you come running to when your engine dies because you've adjusted something you shouldn't have.

    20 Bar? I think these people are having you on. 20 Bar is 280psi. I'm not sure what the TDI turbo runs at but I'm pretty sure its not 280 psi! My friends car boost gauge goes to 1.6 bar max and thats damaging the turbo.
    Engines are fairly delicate when it comes to boost levels and 1 wrong move you've knackered not only your turbo but your engine too. But definatly keep us updated should you decide to blow your engine :w00t:

    No probs.

    Its all well and good if you know what your doing but if I were you I would hand over the cash and get it mapped instead.

    Nothing is ever cheap and easy with turbo boost setting... messing about with the threaded bar isnt a great idea as you could end up tricking engine sensors etc with airflow and what have your, resulting in overfueling and even poorer running, risk damaging your car at so on.

    If your preparted to possibly pay for a new engine, dont see why your not prepared to pay for a proper map

    Oh I do, I find it funny when old people slip over, I find it funny when people driving expensive cars drive into trees, I find songs about hermaphrodites hilarious, I find your audacity in pointing out his lack of grammer and spelling when your own is not up to scratch also funny.
    This chaps just looking for some help and yeah he may not be brilliant at spelling or grammer but there is no need to rip the piss out of him. Cock.

    Awww is the elitest cock getting upset? Give it a rest.

    dadogfromskem no easy way, remap is your best option otherwise your likely to screw up your engine. Good luck.

    Like they say remap is your cheapest and reliable option. Revo do a remap where you can buy a 'dongle' which allows you to alter various settings, used to be SPS3 but now called something different; check out www.revotechnik.co.uk for more info. You can get a 5 hour free trial to tempt you into buying it from a relevant dealer.
