    Hello all,

    I am sure this has been done to the death - but I will ask.

    What is the expected 1/4 out of an S3 that has been chipped.

    You IHI boys - what 1/4's have you seen - only if you have a quattro :p

    Cheers,
    Leon

    13.9@109mph **** start 2.3 60ft at santa pod which is a slow track.
    chipped s3 14.5 at 95mph a very good run at pod.

    I went to Crail a couple of weeks ago. I ran a 15.7s at 95.1mph, and a MTM big turbo S3 got a 15.3 at 96.1mph.

    In our defense, it was wet and slippery (but the top speed was alright)!

    yeah top speed gives a good idea of power to weight,95 is spot on.

    I ran 14.8 at Santa Pod last year at the GTI Festival on a really hot day when the car was standard. Ive seen remapped S3's run 13.9-14.1 at Pod. I would expect a Big turbo S3 to run mid 13's.

    Don't believe a remapped s3 will ever go under 14 seconds at pod. I remember the vag-tuner one with hybrid turbo did a 14.1 .

    My mate has run 14.1 at pod in his A3 1.8T. Its front wheel drive and all hes had done is Jabba remap, exhaust and induction kit.

    My mates A3 makes 237 bhp on Jabba's rollers, we spoke to the guy from vag-tuner last year and he wouldnt beleive the power figures from Jabba but after seeing it on the 1/4, wouldnt run against it.

    Dodgy timing gear? I find that hard to believe as with 320bhp at the pod managed mid 14's... Too hot mind but still.

    like i've said before thats probably the best launch i've ever seen of a s3 triple a,remember pod is so sticky.
    I still find it very hard to believe a a3/s3 chipped can crack 14 seconds at pod.
    Prove me wrong,i'll be there at spring festival.

    Unfortunately my mates gettin rid of the A3 in favour of an S3 which might not be remapped in time for pod, if he comes ill get him to bring his timing slips for the 14.1 and 14.3's. One of my other mates runs 14.3's in his Jabba remapped Ibiza Cupra as long as I beat him on the day ill be happy. Hes talking about trying some race fuel though so we'll just have to wate and see.

    by the way all this exhaust talk,some aftermarket exhausts to name no names become restictive at 320bhp.

    zerok66,the s4 is a heavy old beast with just a remap and decent start you should crack 14's just.
    typical 0-100 is 14seconds in a remaped s4
    for a s3 is 15/16 seconds.

    My standard 225 S3 achieved 14.5s @ 93 mph, well 14.6s if you round up, at the pod, many years ago.

    That was with a not-too-good reaction time.

    I have of course blurred my reg, but believe me, it was me. Think Rich was there at the time. Eeeeeh, them were the days. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Santa Pod ALB vs DAZ (wmv)

    ...mines the Silver car. This wasn't the fastest run either. This and other runs were about 14.7s.

    2.081 is a good 60ft mate,don't reckon you can do much less than 2 secs with road tires.Best i managed was a 2.4 something with a dying clutch.

    My car was only 2 months old then. I had run the car in, as best I could prior to this trip. But I guess the clutch was pretty grippy.

    I'm sure both the car and me, couldn't do such a time now. Although I the engine is probably nice and loose now at 40000 miles.

    Anyway, I have taken the thread off topic, by bringing a standard car's time into it! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Heres the info off the timing slip for my mates A3, it was done on 16/10/2005 at RWYB at Santa Pod

    60ft = 2.027
    330ft = 5.793
    1/8ET = 9.006
    1/8MPH = 77.93
    1000' = 11.688
    1/4ET = 14.125
    1/4MPH = 94.96

    This is a remapped A3 1.8T FWD and is why I believe a remapped S3 should be able to get high 13s

    I seem to remember my best 60ft time was a 2.2 when my car was 190bhp... Looking forward to April as it will be first time on the strip when cars running as it should be.
