    Anything with a larger compressor wheel and same exhaust turbine will be laggier.Plus the exhaust side will still be restictive so won't see the full potential of the compressor wheel.

    Hi
    Turbo all fitted now and alls OK but its going to be another 2 weeks untill the new re-maps done.

    I dont think the standard MTM chip can cope with all my mods.

    Nice one!Make sure they make it a open ended map though so you don't hit limp mode!!Also didn't your mtm chip contain fueling maps for 1.7+bar?Be careful with the AMD remap.

    Should give them time to thrash and rev the car within 1 inch of death on the rolling road.

    Exactly. Testing! They took 4 days mapping my A3 with the IHI and that with having the code pre-written before they had finished the downpipe. They have got the code perfect and ever so slightly rich for safety (which suites me!).
    They are VERY busy these days so just because they have the car for 2 weeks doesnt mean that they will be spending every day of those 2 weeks working on it.

    Turbo £900
    Fitting £500+vat
    remap £850+vat
    total=£2,500 inc vat
    Simon is the first to do it and it's always expensive being the pioneer.
    I hope it's worth the cash mate.
    bit more than a mtm remap!!

    Same price here. Why is it more? Because mine (not sure about Simons) was written from scratch (or as near as!) and took a while on the RR to perfect. Worth every penny.

    Rolling road sounds good to me.

    AmD say that the have tried a number of maps but feel there is still more power to be made, but as Ed was off today I still havnt seen any numbers yet. I think its in good hands.
