    Second R-tech post in 24 hours feel like im jumping on a band wagon but useful results never the less!

    I made the trip to R-tech on Saturday and as everyone has pointed out they are a good bunch of lads, very friendly and welcoming.

    They started out by checking for faults using the same snap-on diagnostic tool I used to check the car the Monday before hand which completely puts to bed any unsure thoughts I had for the system. Came back all good with nothing bad to report.

    They put the car up on the ramp and did a thorough check from underneath, disconected the Haldex and put the car on to the rolling road. I've never had a car on a rolling road before so it was all pretty exciting. They printed out the graph for the standard run which looked a little something like this:

    Pretty happy with that, limited as my knowledge is, it looks to be in pretty good nick. The 209.75 power figure seems to be pretty close to the 170.9 g/s power figure of 213.6.

    They started to upload the map and in the meanwhile I got a shotgun ride in another customers Golf GTI edtion 30 pushing a claimed 270 horses. He had brought it back because he didnt like the REVO that had been put on there and wanted to go back to the R-tech map he had before. And man was that thing rapid, completely different driving sensation with all that power just going to the front wheels, my day is going well at this point :yes:.

    Got back to R-tech had a cuppa and a hob nob and the R-tech map for my S3 was all finished So it was Rolling roaded to see the differences. This is the graph produced:

    247.7 horses at the engine and 247.5 ftlbs at the engine :eyebrows:. Again my knowledge is fairly limited in these things so let me know what you think. Im also yet to get a g/s reading post remap but Im on that tomorrow.

    The car has a K&N panel filter for the while (Old owner), has a Forge 007 and is always run on V-power.

    Let me know your thoughts (hope the pics worked lol)

    I managed to get a quick g/s reading of 195.83 on wednesday evening, equating to 244.79. So the rolling road seems to be fairly accurate in that respect, just 3 lower than the readout. The yellow text they use on the printout for the after figure isn't particularly scanner friendly lol.

    It's nice to see a realistic dyno figure for a Stage 1 S3. Some people's rollers would of had that well up at 260+....

    Dyno lottery I guess....

    Good work! :thumbsup:

    Ta very much!

    I agree, it's nice to have a figure to work from and build upon.

    Bilsteins this month, and I can already hear Forge calling me from Gloucester for next month :eyebrows:

    I drive past there at least twice a day, small world eh!

    I've got a Silver AMK s3, nothing to distinguish it exterior wise, just all of the noise from the holey airbox. I've only had it a month or so.
