Guys my engine has almost 20000 on the clock is it risky to push 280hp on it??
it's running nice but I'm afraid of going for big power!!! ATM I'm pushing about 210 thanks
20,000 or 200,000?
I'm on 200k+ with my S3 APY and looking to end up around 280ish by the end of the year.
As long as you keep on top of regular services (6-8k) and keep a check on everything that could perish/wear and tear then I don't see a problem. Seen quiet a few A3 1.8ts over 220k+ miles with not a lot of issues tbh.
ps what is your actual mileage then out of curiosity?
aum engine ?
About 3.000 p year!!! Don't really drive it much !!! Badger5 ary
Done timing belt tensoner and water pump it's all under control ary
lol @ re-joining a conversation you abandoned 5months ago
As this thread has been brought up a little, I ran 236bhp and 260lbft of torque! My car had a stage 2 software. With a and have fabs v2 intercooler, silicone tip and an itg airfilter.
Problems with my mods were that :
My exhaust went from a 3 inch downpipe into a 2inch tip (awful air flow)
The neck of my air filter was slightly too small
My head was on its last legs, as I found out this July!
Since the rolling road I have bought an s2k air filter from ecp, badger 5 v3 tip, had the 2 inch part of the exhaust temporarily changed to 2.5 as I am going to be replacing all of it soon.
And of course a head rebuild.
The car now runs a lot smoother and I am a lot more satisfied that it is running closer to what it should be
I was looking for the site and couldn't find lol
Joe, lets see if Charlie at pro speed will give us a discount to do both exhausts haha.
Haha! Do you reckon he would, I know someone who needs to go there soon too!
I'd imagine so! I need a 3" DP, new 100 cell cat (I refuse to decat, save the polar bears) and maybe a full mid section.
The only problem is I'd like it all to be 3" but the Milltek back box would require a 2.75" step down and thats going to be an annoying restriction.
My car has since died... lol
I have a 100 cell cat you could have Mike! It wasnt even on my car for long either!
So my car is now more powerful than yours jo jo
As we are all sharing. I'm still running the **** 26 psi boost map I bought my car with...
Arrr gutted... For a minute I thought there was gonna be a rolling road day at B5...
i blew my car up on a stock map! Beat that!
I'll have a word with Bill ;P
I'll be there!!!
I will walk there! lol
Bring the mk2 or the passat. Lol
They are both dying!
Still more alive than the s3 as it stands mate. Unless a satsuma comes up shortly
I'm sure I will find a way there if I'm free Mark, I see where you are going with this, whatsapp me the order! lol
Actually wasn't but I'm not arguing. Lol
Ohhh really? I have one on mine atm but it seems a little small. All well and good being a 100 cell but it looks a small one...
I'd like to come along. I don't think the car is running right, but I'd like to see what it's making.. Of course, my new turbo is in the making atm..
