    S3 Pinging after Revo stage 2

    Cleared codes the previous day and then he drove the car for a day before we read the trims. He then removed the 4bar FPR, we cleared codes again and he drove for a day before we rechecked the trims. Once we'd verified that trims had not changed a second time I cleared codes again, verified...

    S3 Pinging after Revo stage 2

    Ok the 4-bar was removed and Booth drove around for the day once again before we rechecked the trims. They did not even move. Still 0% idle and -14.8% partial. With the car started an idling the control bank sensor % fluctuated between -2%% and +9%. I then reset the adaptions (cleared codes)...

    S3 Pinging after Revo stage 2

    Thanks tuffty. Booth will reinstall the old FPR tonight, drive it around and we'll see if the values have changed tomorrow. We'll do a full logging session over the weekend when I've got some time.

    S3 Pinging after Revo stage 2

    After clearing codes/adaptions yesterday and Booth having driven around we scanned the car again this afternoon to see if any codes were present (there were none). Interestingly enough when I looked at fuel trim values I saw that the idle trim had not adjusted past %0 (post yesterday's adaption...

    S3 Pinging after Revo stage 2

    Just helped Booth with a quick code clear and engine adaption reset via VCDS. Hopefully this will help things along a bit quicker.

    S3 Pinging after Revo stage 2

    He's going to reduce the Revo boost/timing settings before we relog with some decent fuel in the tank, making further WOT pulls "safer".

    S3 Pinging after Revo stage 2

    Well haven't you been a bright ray of sunshine this entire thread? :rolleyes: Thanks for the pointers in the right direction to the rest of you helpful lot. Will assist Booth with some logging once his TIP arrives/settings have been reduced via SPS :thumbs up:

    S3 Pinging after Revo stage 2

    Hey guys, I work with Booth and have been trying to assist where possible. Unfortunately my experience lies with the 8P models (having owned the 8P A3 and S3 in years past). @16Klappe: You keep pushing for him to return the car and get a refund, but unfortunately Revo is the closest (still...

    2013 Audi S3

    Those figures are sketchy at best. Have a listen and decide if it's really a 90/10 split like they say: Active sound on: Active sound off:

    2013 Audi S3

    Like the M5, all that sound is coming from the in-cabin noise generation system. Youtube has a few clips of what it sounds like disconnected. Yes, the straight six turbo sounds good (better than the S3 I would say), but it does not sound like the clip above without the fake noise being piped...

    S3 stage 2 without changing air intake???? just upgrade panel filter?????

    I ran stage 2 with no intake for a few months (since Revo lists it as an optional mod at this stage) with no issues to speak of. I've even had my stock airbox on recently with stage 2+ for a few days (after a service) and while peak power was definitely not where it was with my EVOMS the car did...

    PCV ~ what's an easy test to check it's working?

    Unplug the accordian hose from the intake manifold side of the PCV and try blow hard through it. If you're able to get any air through it it's stuffed.

    P1531/P0333 Camshaft Timing Adjustment

    Thanks for info. Got a part number and/or DIY for the tensioner? Is it the same problematic part as the "cam chain tensioner" people complain about that results in a noisy engine?

    P1531/P0333 Camshaft Timing Adjustment

    Over the past few months I've kept seeing the same two codes pop up when scanned. I used to simply clear them and move on, but eventually I decided after experiencing some performance related issues that I should probably not clear them anymore. The first is P1531. Below are the scans where...

    Fitting The Heat Shield? - S3

    I found the right size socket that's deep enough did the job fairly well

    Downpipes?

    Pity they are so ****** big or I could make a tidy profit having them made up and shipped out to Europe ;) My S3's pipe mid build:

    Downpipes?

    There's nothing wrong with cheaper downpipes if you trust the hand that made them. I'm not sure I'd buy one off eBay seeing as I can't see the workmanship, but both my A3 and S3 have had pipes made up by a local shop for roughly the equivalent of 100 pounds (in SA Rand value) and each was...

    DSG paddle extension.......

    Personally I wouldn't have gone for the larger one's a few pics below (i.e. those that extend both the top and bottom of the baddle) as they look a bit over the top. The Maniacs paddles I've found to be quite useful in changing gears with the wheel turned. Personal preference at the end of the...

    DSG paddle extension.......

    The first pic would be my car. ;) The paddles are fairly cheap and use a strong 3M tape to adhere to the existing paddles so there's no removal required.
