    205+ from a 1.4? That's almost scary!

    Wouldn't that seriously strain the engine shortening it's life? Referring to the 1.4

    Revo FTW! I'm shocked at the tuning potential of these new engines. Intrigued to see what they wring out of the new 2.0TSI block

    They're both great to drive!

    If you look at the dyno graphs though you'll see that the cars both made more than the standard quoted figures from the factory. The engines themselves aren't really any difficulty to tune, it's the development involved with the new ECU types that run them that really takes the time!

    rabbit222, it's a shame you're not over here otherwise you could have come and had a go in them!

    Thats from the twincharger TSI in the Golf, the A3 uses the single turbo 1.4.

    What sort of life span are we talking?

    Also, what kind of MPG are you looking at from the 205+

    I'm very intrigued regarding this and whether it would be worth it or not. Wouldn't mind actually trying one myself too, standard and tuned.

    It is indeed Kev, I think I would have spent all my time test driving all these lovely REVO'd cars :)
