    I've been demoted to driving the A3 to work this week due to mine being in the bodyshop....

    I'm noticing its smelling of fuel after each run, the DIS mileage varies a lot when you put your foot down (40-50 miles difference) ...is it possible its overfuelling with all the mods attached? we are going to get the remap done soon but would rather get any issues sorted before i go down to R-tech......

    in summary mods are

    Miltek 2.5" DP and sports CAT (which is currently showing an engine fault for the high flow - Lamba)
    Deleted middle box
    4" CAI
    N249 removal
    smoothed air box
    catch can (PCV deleted)
    007p
    blanked off SAI
    FMIC

    any help would be appreciated chaps :)

    Have you checked incase the fuel filter housing hasn't got a crack in it maybe, i'd expect to see your car running leaner rather than rich with the mods you have, not 100% sure though lol

    i did notice today a flat spot just before the boost kicked in....that might be a sign...this is honestly beyond me haha, um the fuel filter is newly fitted but i will check when its dry next, if it had a split would it not leave a puddle when stood still?
