    3.2 V6 Hesitation at 1800-1900RPM with only Partial Throttle.

    So, Dropped the car off at R Tech 2 and a bit weeks a go for Niki to have a play with. Picked it up tonight and it is amazing what that man did. The car has a completely different feel, the hesitation is 99% gone and the general shifting between gears is immense. It used to buck a bit if you...

    8V front end onto 8P

    you can make anything fit anywhere with enough money. I doubt the holes line up as a lot has changed in front end mounting specification since 2003 when the 8P went through it. A lot of ped impact and all sort would have changed the mounting points and style. the bonnet and wings will be...

    3.2 V6 Hesitation at 1800-1900RPM with only Partial Throttle.

When on light 10-30% throttle in any gear I will get a hesitation almost like a missfire, on an uphill it is worse but it is only very brief. It doesn't seem to care if it is hot or cold but if...

    getting beyond a joke!!

    Then just hang up on them? Within the first 5 seconds of the call you can tell whether they are a customer or a leech. The time they are on the phone you might lose another customer. So don't give them any chance, time is money.

    A3 3.2 V6 R-Tech Remap Progress thread.

    Dynos are never an exact science, certain rollers are well known for being very complimentary ! For me it is just for a before and after gain . But just there was a fan on at the front with a direct air feed

    A3 3.2 V6 R-Tech Remap Progress thread.

    Hi Guys, I wanted to start a progress thread as R-Tech are using my car as a test bed for the MK5 chassis R32 engine. Niki is a great tuner and I have followed his work with the turbo engines with much interest as he tunes Mylos Octavia and a whole load of my friends cars getting fantastic...

    Bose Sound System

    tbh the BOSE system sucks compared to some of the others offered. I am in the midst of removing it from my A3 and replacing with a A/D/S setup and JL sub.
