Can someone post which is the NGK iridium plug you used?? thanks!
I'm sure they were: F6KPP332S (Bosch OE part number)
and this translates into:
BKR6EIX (NGK Platinum)
PFR6Q (as NGK standard OE replacement items)
Has the Original issue been solved?
Bump from the dead! I just got a remap, and my car now throws a DTC for misfire at 6300 rpm (happened in 3rd gear). I had previously installed NGK plugs, which I am now going to remove and try the OEM ones.
Is there any update?
misfiring at 6.3k rpm after remap? sounds awfully similar to this.
Disputes over standard S3 figures? sounds awfully similar to this.
Sorry lads the joke was ripe for the picking
Thanks boggy! Just the same as my case!!
This misfire thing... 6300 RPM is almost touching redline... has anyone considered that the misfire might be a feature to make you realise you are close to blowing your engine?
Like a pre warning until engine limiter kicks in? Just a thought....
no flat spot/misfire on mine at any rpm, mine is totally standard, pulls cleanly all the way to the limiter.
The rev limiter comes in gradually from about 6800rpm and totally stops you going past around 7000rpm.
same here... no misfires as well... but one never knows....
Not at all! In fact the car is quite eager to rev still at those revs!
The problem has to do with a misfire of some sort which got accentuated by the remap
Who did your remap?
APR, but that does not seem to be the cause (the map itself) because other forum members are experiencing a very similar issue! Misfires above 6000 rpm which are worse once chipped
Take it back to the dealer...let them sort it out..if it was misfiring before the remap why didnt you have it checked out??
