Ok on second thoughts maybe i should get them changed. So your saying the crank and pistons will be fine and just to change the rods? Is there anything else i should change just to be on the safe side?
I've just got off the phone to the previous owner of the car and what he said was that the stage 3 map is limited to a certain bhp. Is this true?
Also if i were to get a custom map put on would i 100% have to upgrade the engine internals? Or what bhp are standard internals good til?
I'm not exactly sure what model of the T28 i've got on there. I've got the orginal invoice from turbo technics for the turbo but all it says is
1.8T T28 Hybrid turbo then underneath its got
AUDI A3 180BHP T28 conversion.R163
Does the R163 mean anything?
See thats what i was thinking. Its got had all those bits done to it plus a k&n typhoon induction kit and S3 BAM throttle bodies and inlet manifold and i'm sure theres more i've missed out aswell. Surely it should be running more than 237HP rite?
So do you think a custom map will sort that...

I bought my car a couple of months ago it was just a spur of the moment thing but to this day i am still happy with my purchase. The thing is i hardly know anything about engines and how to modify or what to modify. I was told the car has a stage 3 revo map on it and i was given a receipt...
Thanks for that mate. A few questions though.
Wats the difference between the 2 oils and which would be the better?
The NGK plugs would you say these are the best for my car coz i don't mind paying more aslong as i know it is going to be a better product.
The cambelt was changed at 58,000...
Hi i have been thinking about getting a Haldex controller fitted to my car, just wanted to find out if anyone on here has one and what are they like? Do you think they are worth money? Looking at a couple of vids on youtube they look like they make quite abit of difference.
Hi my car needs a service and i want to spend some good money and get some decent products for it and take them down to the garage for them to fit.
The car is a 1.8T Quattro W-reg done 100,000 miles.
I've just bought the car recently and it has had quite abit done to the engine aswell...
I was driving down the motorway and all of a sudden the car has just lost all it's turbo power.
It's not pulling as usual something is definetly wrong. When I put my foot down
