    bigger turbo,better air filter,better exhaust system
     
  3. It's been prooven that uprated exaust or upraded air filter will not improve performance. Neather cause restrictions on A3/S3's.

    A remap will by far be the best value for money to increase power.

    Any reason why you don't want a remap?

    Do a search on here, you'll find plenty of good information backed up by RR figures that show what little advantage these give.

    That graph seems to show a 50BHP increase. Is that just using the sport cat?

    it shows that changing your exhaust will provide more power unless miltek are fibbing

    personally I have a remap and am happy with it for the price

    Did he not say more power without a remap?

    A bigger turbo needs a remap!

    And air filter and exhaust will not give any noticeable power difference!

    Changing your N75 valve for a more agressive valve would be the cheapest. This would increase you boost pressure slightly, but again not that noticeable.

    Although a remap is about £400 or £500, it's well worth it!

    Glen did a test a few years back on various parts at his expense and with the use of a rolling road at Star Performance. They rarely give any extra performance and a "performance" downpipe actually reduced power.
