    Lets see how good you are at the the mystic, I have 2002 s3 with supposed to be mtm bt conversion done by audi somewhere in scotland. The only identifieng numbers i can find on turbo are GGG3552 below that is 326 1016362F thats all i can find on it. Needless to say main audi stealers being less than helpfull same with previous owner problem im finding is lack of anything untill you hit 4000 where it just goes bonkers and takes off like a bat out of hell and doesnt stop till you run out of road, never tried it on a motorway just not got the bottle to keep it going untill i know its not going to keep going untill it goes bang. Surely it should have a decent response before 4000 fed up geting caught out pulling out and sitting waiting on it coming on power. Ive had it down at local mapper who does revo, he reported that when its on boost readings seem as would be expected with a big turbo but couldnt figure out why so laggie. So big question is does anyone know if this was done by audi to mtm spec what mapping would have been done so i can get it adjusted instead of it costing 500 bucks to have revo map done sureley this is possible. Any suggestions as to why so laggie and any remidies would be gratefully recieved. PS also running external wastegate, thanks in advance for any answers guys just cannot believe how laggie this car is .

    I'd take it to QST as Alan has already said. Kim Collins is a very very knowledgable man.

    Hi there, can you tell me the Scottish based Revo dealer you used. I'm Glasgow based and looking for a remap.

    Heard good things about Bedrock Veedubs who i understand are a Jabbasport agent...so just weighing up my options at the moment.

    Hope you get your car sorted. Think i saw it at auction before it reached a car dealer in Coatbridge. MTM badged, yellow, big brakes, etc...so sounds like yours.

    Cheers for now,

    Dave

    This is why i wouldn't go BT. I remember the days of larger Turbo's on Cossies and the resultant lag!

    Has it had intercooler upgrades etc? I've read on here that too big a cooler can give more lag? Could be a problem?

    Good luck.

    I bet there's lots more lag than a well set up Hybrid or even standard Turbo car though, surely?

    Appreciate your input m8 know you had 1 with simalar spec was a well sortted car rekon myself its mapping just trying to rule everything else out biggest prob av got is trying to keep downpipe sealed at turbo you know how little room there is down there but will get there. Youre new brief is sum piece of kit is it not very nice indeed must be amazing to drive, hope your enjoying it

    Why surprised, only time youl really benefit with front mount is if your running high boost giving it the beans constantly, every day driving with the od bit of spirit side mounts cope fine. If im wrong im sure someone will put me rite.

    fmic will give it a bit more boost, and when it is hot weather will keep it boosting hard all through the rev range instead of dying out as the engine is to warm, would of thought it would of had a fmic on having spent all that money on it

    Must admit, i thought it would have an FMIC. Perhaps the bigger turbo doesn't run much boost so therefore doesn't need the bigger cooler?

    Also, the external wastegate, do you mean the noisey dump valve? Or that that turbo has its wastegate on the side of it instead of built in?

    Shame you drove it like my nan Faz ;)

    Shouldnt be that laggy at all, mine seems to pull cleanly all the way thru, may be a dodgey sensor or maybe a clueless mechanic has switched out the ecu for a spare as it was having problems?

    Best of luck with it tho, stick with it, MTM rule! Deffo contact Kim at QST tho, as far as Im aware they are the only autherised dealer in England for MTM tuning so if its been done he should know about it

    This has been covered loads on other FMIC threads on here. A BT doesn't need a fmic because it doesn't generate as much heat as a K04 with the boost wound up. The 2 standard side mounts are adequate with a BT but with a mapped K04 it just generates too much heat for the smic to deal with.

    thats the very 1 m8 plenty of power wen on boost and doesnt loose a drop all the way to red line just doesnt come in quik enuf for my liking, ok if your giving it beans nothing looks at it just keeps catching you out when you least expect it. Hopping to get it up to star when finnish up work for crimbo get something sorted out, once id seen the car n drove it just had to have it lol .

    Sound like a bizzare setup, I think Mine and Fazs were pretty much identical in the mapping for clean power thru the rev range, even from down low. I do feel a bigger shove at about 3-4k as it really comes on song which makes the earlier bit feel slow but in reality it isnt

    Best of luck with it anyway, hopefully youll get used to the way it develops the power and enjoy it, god knows driving mine to work is the only time I smile in the morning
