    As above says really I'm getting my car mapped on Saturday, is there anything I should do first, or get? I have jetex cone filter, silicone tip, silicone turbo outlet pipe, 007p DV and 3" downpipe and decat.

    im just thinking that there maybe other things I could do to get the most out of my car, any help would be much appreciated,

    my car is A3 AGU

    It can be mapped accordingly but expect the IATs to rocket and power to be a little lower than expected... use decent fuel (shell v-power or tesco 99)

    a FMIC can be added after to get the best out of the power you have...a decent downpipe wiil help eventually too

    Sort any boost/vac leaks you may have.

    FMIC won't give any more power, but will allow you to have the power for sustained power runs.

    Use Shell V Power, I got my car remapped and used Tesco 99 and had problems, i then switched to V Power and it was perfect.
    Good luck with the Remap ! :)

    Thanks guys, I don't think I have any boost leaks, etc but I suppose I'll find out on Saturday, the guys at the garage said to have a full tank of v power when I get there lol, just wasn't sure if there was anything else that I could do with what I've already put on the car to help get the best I can
