    Hi all,

    I have been reading many posts with people remapping, some having problems and some not. I would like to try and keep this a clean thread i.e select your remap, then only

    - Post only figures you achieved
    - Problems you have / had and how you fixed the problem.
    - Also if you have any other engine modifications.

    Try to be breif.

    Hope this makes sense.

    David

    I have a Superchips Custom Remap on my S3. VAG COM says that it has 385 PS (that's around 379 bhp) running on 100 RON fuel. Had a Wetterauer Remap before, it was good but the Superchips one is much smoother with less overboost and also more powerful.

    Other mods: Milltek Exhaust, APR Fuel Pump, EVO MS intake.

    No issues.

    - Post only figures you achieved

    No RR figures but from how the car drives Im sure the car is achieving at least REVOs figures of 300bhp

    - Problems you have / had and how you fixed the problem.
    None yet

    - Also if you have any other engine modifications
    Nope, none planned.

    cheers

    not remapped yet. If I do go for it, it will be REVO

    Trying to decide if its worth the potential warranty,insurance hassles and cost.

    Hi Guys,

    sorry to interupt but i just thought i'd mention that vagcom power figures are ok on a standard car but it dosen't allow for cars requestng more power than in their standard guise, so can give some very spiradic and inaccurate figures.

    hope this is of some help!
