    Car had new fuel pump, New regulator and new ecu. And its still running lean under boost! Any ideas

    logs, dyno graph etc required mate... can't tell realistically...

    Whats the spec of your car? haen't you got a hybrid or something?

    It's been on dyno, constantly holding 14-14.1 on boost. Standard k04 turbo. Have you hot a contact number? Could get my mechanic to call you. If u don't mind

    Is it mapped? thats std fuelling...

    Should it be holding that on full boost? At 6500rpm. N yeah it is a standard map, hasn't been mapped yet.

    yep, stock mapping holds 14ish until the ECU decides that the EGT's are getting dangerous then it enriches, maximises economy that way!

    If you log the lambda blocks you can see the ECU's requested VS actual fuelling, if they match, its nothing to do with the fuel pump or regulator etc, its just doing what the ECU's telling it to.

    So I'm ok to go with a map on that?

    So long as you use a reputable mapper you should be fine.

    Bad mappers leave the fuelling stock, which causes issues as while the engine will happily run those AFR's on stock tune and stock power levels, once you turn the wick up things start getting too hot.

    Where are you thinking of taking it to?

    It's already at grperformance, he's really good wi evos. He said its lean compared to EVO. That's y he wa worried bout melting piston.

    is yours wide band or narrow band (guessing wideband >2001) as stock fueling is 0.953 lambda under wot, until egt's hit 920'c and it fuel dumps to self preserve

    just because he knows evo's does'nt make him fully equipped for me7 mapping (custom mapping)

    Putting stage 2 map on it, will let you know results, to confirm that ok

    TBH the very fact the guys changed the ECU trying to cure a fuelling issue that likely doesnt exist shows he probably doesnt know enough to be tuning these cars.

    Where is the stage 2 map coming from?

    what would lambda request drop to under EGT protection or an EGT fault? 0.75?

    Is this what you have been chasing in previous threads? I seem to recall you having 'lean fuel' issues before...

    As Bill has said, wideband (AMK, BAM) S3's are tuned to 0.95 lambda until intervention is required to enrichen (knock, IAT's, ETG's etc) and if your tuner knows about which tables to change and has looked at the map then he would be able to see what stock values are..

    Not trying to discredit your tuner in anyway but should you not be looking at someone with experience in VAGs? stage 1/2 tuning on ME7.5 is fairly well established..

    request does'nt drop more plummet... 0.75/0.69

    the fuel dump is a large % added... lambda control on 001 is zero'd when fuel dump kicks in

    stage 2 Who's map?

    Do they write their maps or flash bought in ones franchise stylee?

    EDIt... they changed your ecu? eh?

    Depends... on stock they generally just hit physical EGT protection (EGT probe in turbo) and fuel dump... ME7.5 ecu's without an EGT probe use component protection to enrichen AFR when calculated EGTs get too high...

    There are other protection tables too...

    Non wideband ecu's have component protection tables tuned to run rich, S3 ME7.5 doesn't... just seems designed to run lambda 1 for as long as poss then rely on the EGT probe (IAT's and knock play a part too of course) to enrichen

    OK, thanks. I have an EGT fault and my lamba request is 0.75 with actual closer to 0.65 on boost high in the rpms. I also have 5° timing pull on cylinder 3. I may start a thread

    Thanks again....sorry to jump in Brent

    If the ECU can't use the EGT probe for any reason then it goes mega rich all the time... don't run it like that for long as it can cause bore wash and damage to the rings... (been there)

    Theyre using flash maps, ive had new ecu cos ut hot corrupted from since revo was on ot. He Saïd hé usés me8 or something. Think im gunna try n get ot down to you at some point, get it sorted properly.

    sorry fella... but you seem to have been misled
    revo wont have corrupted the ecu. more so they dont have the tools/experience to map me7 ecu properly

    I fear a line of misinformation has been fed to you.. (being polite)

    It was a vw specialist that corrupted it, while I had the revo on. He tried blanking the lambda sensor out. It corrupted it.

    you are the guy who tried to read out revo to mess with the code and do something with the 2nd lambda yea?
    All you needed to do was to turn revo boost back off 0 to make it work again.... I did post that on your thread. >>http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-forum-8l-chassis/168470-no-boost-all-now.html#post1680759

    I wish I had'nt bothered to waste my time.......... {sighs}

    ECU was not corrupted the file was simply reset on the ee so revo boost went to 0
    What did you do with the old ecu?

    I've got the ecu back on my car, it got sent off, apparently it was corrupted. It seems fine now. The bloke who it was sent off to fixed it apparently

    indeed

    I gave you the answer 2 weeks ago

    good luck getting it running right
