    S3 8V Part Throttle Characteristics

    noticed something new this evening. Since getting the resonator delete fitted I can hear a slight pop out of the exhaust during hard acceleration between 3k and 4k rpm. I have also picked up on the boost gauge fluctuating in 2nd gear. Still no fault codes though. Really frustrating! Think I’m...

    Would someone mind taking a look at these dyno logs...

    Morning all, Put the car on a dyno last week. Engineer didn’t seem overly concerned with the cars performance but raised an eye brow at the timing retardation seen on each run. He said it could be bad fuel. Would someone mind taking a look at this and seeing if there’s anything out of the...

    S3 8V Part Throttle Characteristics

    Might change this anyway. Does anyone know the part number, is it expensive? Had the car health checked and dyno'd recently and seemed to pull well.

    S3 8V Part Throttle Characteristics

    Yeah mine seems to be between 2.5k and 3k. It does seem to coincide with the car coming on boost. I think I notice it more because I drive my wifes 1.4 TFSI which seems to boost alot smoother but guessing that could be down to a much smaller turbo?

    S3 8V Part Throttle Characteristics

    Ok, is there any easy way of checking this? The car was purchased from a main dealer so should they have updated the ECU as part of their preperations?

    S3 8V Part Throttle Characteristics

    Morning all, Recently purchased a S3 8v with 40k on the clock. The car has full service history and on initial inspection/when driving seems sound enough. That said I have noticed some slight hesitation or surging when in 2nd and 3rd gear under part throttle, for example when pulling gently out...
