    A few of you already knew about my ko3s powered Leon Cupra after my antics at Santa Pod and the gospel spread by Jardo. For others the first experience was at your rolling road day at Badger 5.
    Quite a few people were shocked by the R-Tech Power.


    After the Audi Sport rolling road day at Badger5 produced a record breaking 261.1 BHP a mad plan was hatched. Niki and I were confident that more power could be extracted from the baby turbo.
    The logs showed that we had headroom left in the N75 duty cycle and ignition timing.

    Bill challenged us to try and hit 270bhp on his dyno.
    90 minutes were allocated for the mapping and testing. After this the turbo would be removed from the car and inspected by an independent engineer.
    There had been stories on other forums that I was actually running a hybrid turbo disguised as an OEM item.

    As you can see, Niki was taking things very seriously

    at the end of 90 minutes of tweaking, tuning and logging, the definitive ‘ultimate ko3s’ map was completed.

    We fell short of mission impossible but were all amazed by what we had achieved.
    264.7bhp smashes all previous records for the baby KKK turbo

    As promised the turbo was removed and inspected as soon as it was cool enough to work on.
    Dan from Beachbuggy turbos actually laughed out loud when the turbo was handed to him.
    Not only was it a stock KO3s but it was in 100% perfect working order, only a couple of little cracks in the hot side and next to no bearing wear :lol:

    Proof positive that for years the KO3s had been the most under rated turbo in the tuning world :clap:

    You know how I feel about it Mylo, we have all gained so much from the R&D in this car and it has helped push all of our maps to the next level.

    Keep up the good work, I wish you the best of luck with the hybrid :)

    Cheers bro, I figured that since the shell is actually a write off we could probably get away with slapping an audi badge on it now :idea:
    The whole project proved that the KO3s is far from dead.

    Big respect to Niki at R-Tech for helping me develop the car over the last year.
    Big respect to Bill at Badger5 for providing us with the platform on which to complete our mission, I have a feeling this will not be the last time we work together on a project :thumbsup:


    The latest chapter in the project is even more interesting, although I'm now on the well travelled path of a hybrid turbo.
    Only the methods we are using to tune it are new and ground-breaking.
