My car is Audi A3 quattro1.8t (ARY), that is currently running a stage 1 tune. On the dyno sheet it is clear, that the engine could not hold the boost for long time. The guys at the dyno said it is probably a broken wastegate, but the issue could be anywhere in a turbo. Right now I am...
Everywhere I look it says that there are issues with fitting a 7163 to a RHD TTS. I guess the steering shaft gets in the way but can’t be sure. If anyone here has done it and can let me know why there are “difficulties”that would be very handy, cheers
I recently got an ECU stage 1 remap for my Audi A3 saloon. 2013 plate and it has done 53,000 miles. BHP went from 138 to 170, and torque from 250 to 300 - so about 20% increase.
I won't name the company yet but they seem to be a big company, and part of what they call the 'Quantum...
Hi guys, I'm happy to say I've just became an owner of my first turbo car (1998 Mk4 GTI), it has an AGU engine thats why I'm posting on an Audi forum (same engine as the A3).
I've done some research all over forums for what to do to get more power. I'm aiming for over 200 ill be happy with 215...
Hey there guys.
So my car seems to be lacking any boost or push above 3,200RPM when doing a full throttle pull in third gear. It struggles to redline. I can hold it there in third with my foot to the floor down the dual carriage way and it just cannot do it. Lower down it comes on early and...
I had a strange experience earlier today - while driving up a hill my power suddenly seemed to drop, and from that point the engine felt very sluggish - I realised that it was because the turbo wasn't doing what it should be! I was doing about 2500 revs on a moderate incline, hadn't been...
So, i am still getting my head around the ea888 ccza engine and the differences between this and the older tfsi. I know this is chain driven etc etc but been researching possible turbo upgrades as want to push it in rhe near future. Anyone be able to hep explain what is needed and what turbo...
I have a 2005 3.0l diesel turbo Audi 4 Quattro that looses turbo boost from time to time when under load. When it does the glow light flashes and the performance is limited. When the car is restarted the glow light goes off and I have full power back. I have had our mechanic review the...
Solid lifters and valve springs for making power at high rpm 9000+rpm.
They'll work for any 5 valve engine, turbo, supercharged or naturally aspirated.
You'll need additional components to achieve that rpm - mech cams, rods.
I have a kit for 6 cylinders, you'll need additional for a V8 or less...
I used to be obsessed with these 10-15 years ago, which is about as long as most of these parts have been lying around. I used to collect unusual parts to customise how the car would run
Let me know if you have a project v6 turbo land yacht S4, RS4, A6 or Passat and I will have something that...
I used to be a member on here years ago and I have genuine RS4 B5 and RS6 C5 parts that had been long forgotten about in the garage. Postage is available from the UK. These are genuine parts. I'm into V8's now so selling V6 parts.
Hi, I have a 2007 2.0t BUL and when the turbo kicks in it sounds different and has not much of a kick. With a diagnostic scanner this code came up. I've changed the dv and smoked tested and found no leaks. Does this mean the turbo is going bad? What's the best way to diagnose it? Thanks
Hi guys, as some of you will know from previous post, I had poor figure from my stage 2+ Apr + RFD v3.4 map
335bhp & 368ftplb
I'm getting a new turbosmart actuator fitted towards end of month as my tuner has narrowed it down to that being at fault
What kind of boost pressure is normal for...

Hi all, new to the forum and want to start with this.
I am going to get an a3 8l quattro sport in the next few weeks, plan on gradually upgrading it, however had a brainway (or not but let's see), would it be wise (or stupid) to get a ko4 swapped into it first so i'm prepped for future...
Hi there I’ve got a 06 b7 a4 2.0t
I wanted to upgrade the turbo with as few as possible mods.
what turbos do you guys recommend. At 220bhp at the moment. I wanna increase that as much as possible any help will be much appreciated.
I can hear what sounds like a boost leak coming from the solenoid block, i cant pinpoint any other leak and had a smoke test done. Mpg gone down n loss on power. Done mr muscle on the turbo, actuator works fine, what could it be?
