    Attended a rolling road meet at Torque of the Devil in Uxbridge this morning

    Wasn't too impressed with my 2.0tdi (170) only managing 156.4bhp on the rollers

    Anything i can do to get this up a bit? Would just a good service get it back to pretty much standard figures?

    The guy at TOTD said that auto's never give an accurate reading anyway as you can't keep it in the required gear, but still said it shouldn't be lacking that much power from a 2007 with only 26k on the clock.

    Any ideas?

    Remap and DPF delete will be coming soon btw :hubbahubba:

    Auto`s are a bitch to RR correctly and take some time to set up properly which will never happen on a RR day. I doubt your car is under powered just the RR gave you an inaccurate result.

    Remap/Software, it ups the torque limit, makes manual mode "FULLY" manual, so doesn't up change and just better to drive with so I've been told, I will be getting it done!

    Well for me it's the only gearbox I'm allowed to drive after being restricted to an auto license by the dvla because I paralysed my left arm in a mountain bike crash....

    The RR results only show from 2k up to 6.5k and back to 2k. On the road 2k is 50mph so i doubt it would change but what do i know ? i have only run bikes on a RR before and never an auto car :faint:

    This is the problem with the RR days
    It has to be set up correctly, the figures are pretty meaningless unless they are a before and after comparison. which is the whole idea.
    My DSG will rev to the red line at 6k and then run out. it will 0nly change if its in the red ie 6.5k
    the best a RR day will do is piss you off or get you to go back for a proper run...which is what they want :)

    NOT if you change up INTO the gear, and KEEP the paddle held closed... it won't auto-shift "up"
    out of the selected gear until the paddle is released.
