    I suspect the lack of response is partially down to the fact this has been done to death mate...

    Just start searching for stage 2 type mods as an example and have a look about...

    Its nothing personal but this is bread and butter stuff thats asked more times than you know and nobody ever uses the search...

    I use it all the time to post links to threads myself but this has been asked that many times before it won't take you too long to find what you need and considering what you have done to your other car it should be obvious what you need to do...

    :)

    Ok... getting 220hp from a K03s turbo'd engine can be subjective at best... normally see between 210/220hp as a rule so just bear that in mind...

    To get the 'best' out of your K03s turbo'd engine its generally an idea to do...
    FMIC
    3" DP
    Silicon TIP
    Cone filter
    007p DV
    ...and a stage 2 remap of course

    Just a remap will get you most of the power you seek but you won't keep it for long as heat takes over....

    There are loads of threads on here of various mods to A3's to attain reliable and repeatable power so I am not going to repeat all that... however as someone that has spent time working with professionals in this game I would suggest you make sure that before you remap your car you need to ensure that your engine is running properly and by that I mean its not got any air or boost leaks and its in serviceable condition... these cars are getting old now and have seen quite a few recently that I am quite frankly surprised they are running at all...

    Make sure the engine is free of DTCs (fault codes) and by that I mean fixed rather than just cleared and hope they don't come back... MAF is functioning as it should, plugs are good condition and gapped properly and if you do things like N249 bypasses etc make sure they are done properly...

    I know this all sounds a little like a lecture but its very important not to forget the basics when tuning a car :)

    Don't use a bloody BOV either :no:

    You asked for a profesional, and sadley im not lol so i stayed out of it.
    But whilest your after the power gains why not invest in the handeling mods ie cupra r quik rack, wishbones and hubs, front n rear arb's and coil overs. All can be bought for less than £400 and will help in preventing any further miss haps, forbid that to happen again to you.
