    ESP off in ice ?

    ESP means Electronic stability program, aka traction control. ESP ON = Traction control on ESP OFF = Traction control off If you like your car to go straight and don't enjoy sideways action then ESP ON. If you fancy having a tear up in an empty field or car park then ESP OFF.

    Suggest me a hybrid turbo!

    I stuck with K03S and it quite comfortably keeps me up with bigger cars around the track and on the road. The NA Mini's, Clio's and Honda's were all quite surprised how well the full fat A3 outdone them on the straights. Horses for courses really, just bear in mind big turbo swaps will quickly...

    Audi S3 8L Haldex problems.

    From the symptoms you described I would definitely look for corroded Haldex earth strap and corroded Haldex connectors. I had same fault code, I replaced my earth strap with a new cable and repaired the connector and hey presto.

    Engine MIL inoperative or indicates a malfunction (8.2.2.2 (g))

    So basically your car has failed the MOT because there is an active or stored fault code on the ECU but no engine check light is on is the cluster, which could mean that someone has pulled the check engine light bulb out from the cluster to hide the fault. The MOT station have diagnosed your car...

    Oil Change

    Change the oil and oil filter at the same time, do it once and do it right no need for two oil changes. I would also recommend using an oil flush especially on turbo powered cars.

    If your so worried about your engine then forget about remapping your car because your making a mountian out of a molehill, I have remapped cars with alot higher mileage than yours with no issues what so ever, it really isn't a big deal.

    Remap advice please

    2.0 tfsi remaps... you should be able to squeeze another 50-70hp in stock form. You could go for an economy map +25% power. 50/50 map, 50% increase. Power map, tuned to the max! Plenty of mobile tuners around these days that will come out to you and have it done within the hour.

    Miltek System?

    I got full Miltek resonated with decat and no centre boxes and its brilliant, just what you expect from a quality exhaust system. Quiet and humble on tick over, doesn't drone at all and unleashed some extra HP. You can subtly hear it when you go through the gears and pops and bangs when...

    A3, 1.8t 150hp low power.

    Could be N75 not working properly, hence low boost. You using an o.e N75 or a Chinese ebay one? To test N75 and turbo, disconnect the vacuum line from N75 going to turbo actuator, this should make it boost like buggery, so be careful. If it still doesn't boost then turbo actuator or turbo...

    My minor modding thread

    Hey Tufty you going to use the standard 6 speed quattro gearbox? I heard the turbo r32 boys like to use a modified 02M with diesel final drive to make most of the extra power. The reason I am asking as I am interested in this gearbox setup for my stage 2 1.8t too.

    Do you wear a Face mask?

    The coronavirus is more like an earthquake with aftershocks that will permanently reshape the world. The economy, governments, and social institutions will take years to recover in the best-case scenario. Indeed, rather than even speak of “recovery,” which implies a return to how things were, it...
