    Are we looking at the S3 spoiler? Or the tailpipes?

    I didn't realise you already had a performance exhaust...

    tail lights chris?

    what do you mean your radiator doesnt like the power you have? a ko3s should no way over heat your coolant, something else must be wrong if thats the case

    We're looking at the spoiler mate. Yes it is a genuine S3 spoiler.

    I got it from a bloke off of here, as well as my ABT grill, about 2 months ago, but have only just got around to getting it sprayed and fitted.

    Got a cat back system on it, thats why I'm interested in the downpipe mate.

    Ste - I'm free tomorrow evening if that's any good to you mate?

    Hey guys thought I would pop my rr results in here as it's a Quattro.

    Only has a pipercross panel filter and forge 007p on it.

    They are good results for only a few mods and a map.

    I've got to ask, are R-Tech as good as every one says they are? I'm tempted to tie in a trip there with seeing a round of BSB and some point this year.

    I really need to get mine on a dyno to try and give me a vague figure, as I have an idea of I'd like mine to be, but no clue what it actually is..

    I am very pleased with the results... for now. Got the suspention to sort next then when that is done the brakes then more power :D

    They seem to be, always very busy with lots of cars there having work done and from the reports on here most come away with a smile on their face so. Well worth the £200 for the stage one map, and if you have a r-tech map already and have more mapping done you get upto £150 off the next map so pretty good really.

    Check the feedback on the website... R-Tech feedback, R-Tech remapping

    I'd Just take it to any dyno for now, it don't cost much just for a power run :L at least you will know what it's doing then.

    yea, Rtech really are as good as people make out, they're simply brilliant!

    Is yours a ko3 or ko3S Reesy? if it's a ko3 it'll be around 195bhp, if it's a ko3S it'll probably be about 205-210 on CC1 with those mods

    Mine is a K03s mate, might see about getting on a Dyno in the next couple of weeks to get a figure. You've got a K03s in your A3 haven't you Nick?

    0-1** would be better for me I reckon, or a decibel test at 80!!!

    I'll see what I can do mate, are they the only days you're free?

    Have you checked the coilpacks/plugs? Is the 1.6 wheel-less at the moment then?

    I'm confused. TheNewt, mate, how did your RR start off at 150bhp, since the Quattro has 180bhp as standard...?

    It didnt, look again.

    it started off at 185, and ended up at 210.

    the first figure is power at the wheels, the figure in brackets is power at the flywheel.

    The Rtech dyno plot above is of a ko3S car

    I don't know about your cars but mine car suffers with "throttle hang" where the revs stay high while changing gear. But only when driving quick... any idea's?

    Any pics of your quattro yet mate? And anything else done to it apart from the 007p, belt change and map?

    No idea about the throttle hang, if it happens on ours it must happen on S3's as well..

    It's a very common problem, usually put down to a malfunctioning clutch switch.

    mine used to over rev by c. 800 rpm on a gear change. I replaced the clutch switch and it now only over revs by c.100 rpm. Not perfect but alot better.

    Sorry dude no pics yet, I did get round to half detailing it a week ago using clay bar then autoglym super resin polish but never had the time to wax it so thats still has to be done. Still has a scratches that I need to try and get out too, think i'll try that Mcgiures scratch x stuff.I'll give it a wash in a bit and get some pics up.

    The only mods are the 007p, pipercross panel filter and the map.

    The throttle hang does my nut in lol, sounds stupid while changing gear and the revs are still high :(
