    Hi guys I have a 2007 s3 with apr stage 2+ map in it, and the othe day I lost all power with the esp and eml light coming on even with the throttle down or off no power, I turned it back off and on and it was ok again but not I have no flutter with the turbo or anything like it used to, I put it on vcds to check the throttle ad it said error, with the throttle all the way down it was only getting to 87%

    What do you guys think?

    I'd try doing a throttle body alignment using vcds and see what happens.
    Google it there's plenty guides kicking about.

    Does look like a TB failure,doesn't it.

    Mine packed in recently,with a load correction factor 20% greater than it should have been,and would not respond to calibration etc.

    The engine would run,but was overfuelling horribly,and as rough as hell.

    Do you have a reliable tuner nearby that you could take it to?
