    had the s3 on the rollers today at awesome gti, wasnt sure to what map my car had if any, ive had a neuspeed aircone fitted and a 3inch downpipe and de-cat by pipewerx nothing else so really didnt know what to expect to be honest, anyway the car ran 247bhp and 294lb ft. it feels nice and strong to drive but after speaking to awesome the NEW stage 2 remap seems the best option the new apr map is the one for the lcrs, who have always for some reason ran better figures than the tt/s3, its awesomes big fare tomorrow and the stage2 is on special offer for 1 day only so im thinking of getting their early and taking advantage lol.:idea:

    Well my map didn't go on:( My car was in the cross over period (2001) and the software won't fit, would need to be a chip change.

    Noticed my car was smoking more than usual today though so i'm going to keep my eye on that for a while before i get a map i think

    Drove Shanes and Daves APR Stage2 and both felt very strong and smooth throughout the rev range:)

    stage 2 today at awesome took the car home on the motorway and really felt the difference, put your foot down at 80 in 6th and it brings a smile to your face, its very linear boost is so strong right through the rev range and feels just as strong at 2500revs as it does to 6000revs, before stage 2 it ran out of boost at 4500revs.

    The chip in mine hasn't got enough room for the software to go on, they could of changed the chip but because the open day was on the were really busy. A little gutted but i'm looking at getting my turbo rebuilt now before getting it mapped

    technical term coming up.

    **********

    nonsense. very flashable.. just they probably dont have code for your variant of ecu model/software

    **yours is likely not std, it made more than std at ajec did'nt it? so its possible there is a physical chip/encryption board in there, which would prevent flashing. ** opening it up to look see would confirm.

    you know where i am

    Shane had his done Bill (2003), went straight on, took 10minutes, mine did 12% then froze. According to Awesome they have trouble putting the software on the earliers cars. The code they tried on mine and Shanes were both the same. I'll make a trip down to yours one saturday:)

    Yeah Dave, nothing to major in them, Lee followed me home to see if it smoked anymore and it didn't. Not sure why my car did that, i'm going to keep an eye on over the next couple of weeks. Might be making a trip down to Bill so he can check the car over in general

    Thanks for your compliment, didn't really get a chance to polish it up because of the gash weather lol
