Was it a 8P 1.8tfsi you had remapped? What stage did you go for and what gains did you get? Was it aggressive or smooth? Did you have any mods or was it standard?

Yep, 2010 1.8 8P. It was just a stage one map, very smooth for normal driving but really picked up when you put your foot down, only real issue was traction at times (mainly in the wet) but it's to be expected on a front wheel drive car

The car was standard with no other mods

Amazes me how people pay for mods and remaps but never get a dyno run - i'd want to know someone has actually done what they say they have!!

Anyway. Remapped by RTech: 365hp @ 5879rpm / 391lbs @ 4365rpm
When bought as standard was RR'd: 268hp / 323lbs
With mods fitted but before remap: 284hp / 287lbs (dunno why torque had dropped, must have been error with previous RR)

ITG Maxogen CAI
AirTech 50mm Intercooler
AutoTech HPFP internals
RS4 Fuel Valve
Full Milltek (SSXAU353)

Also needed Sachs organic clutch. Uprated brakes (brembo discs, ferodo ds2500 pads). H&R roll bars. Bilstein B16 Coilovers. SuperPro engine mounts and anti-lift kit.

I'm booked with @Rick @ Unicorn Motor Dev. for mid-November for a dyno tuning session and a DSG remap after a number of extra mods, so hoping for something a bit more special :)

Hi guys,
could I get some advice on my s3 2.0Tfsi block please. Currently the block has been bored to 83mm, acid dipped, Billet main caps fitted and line bored. I have a new crank that has been balanced and polished. I have Mahle pistons, Calico costed alc mean and rob bearings, IE Tuscan rods, Arp bolts, 4pc thrust washer. Cylinder head has ported and polished, ferrea springs and retainers, ferrea valves standard size, shims, standard cams, arp bolts. Is there anything that should be changed or added befor the engine is built ?

That's an excellent parts list and should serve you well.
Stick with the stock cams as the aftermarket alternatives are very few and the results a little unpredictable.

If your head work was done by Race Developments you'll have the best results available.

Choosing the correct turbo is crucial now if you haven't already.
I had an M-spec Owen Developments GTX 3582 but had that modified to HTA 3582 and downsized the A/r on the hot side and found it works much better.

Maybe start a build thread and I'll add anything useful that I can..

Hi, I'm going to rtech tomorrow for stage 2+, I've got pretty much the same mods as you so I'm hoping to get the same kind of figures. Did yours achieve this on the standard clutch?

How is your standard clutch coping with this power?

It lasted a week on this power not surprisingly. I'm now on a 6 paddle Clutchmasters with solid flywheel.

Thanks for the info. Mine is going to rtech for stage 2+ tomorrow and I'm not sure if it's a stock clutch or not and am a little worried if it's going to hold but I suppose time will tell

Nikki at Rtech knows his stuff. He can usually map around a slipping clutch

Latest round included work on bringing in the port injectors earlier rather than waiting for the DI ones to max out and also increasing the DSG clutch pressures a bit to reduce slip in 1st gear.

Then back for further mapping and an RS fuel pump.

put a sachs organic in before mapping. cant imagine stock clutch would last long tbh. highly recommend the sachs tho

Maybe not a big deal like S3s on here making over 400HP, but for an 2.0 TDI (BKD) and seen many people asking it will be useful.
Mods:
- Hybrid GT1794VA
- RGR and CAT delete
-2.5 Miltek full exhaust (down pipe heat covered)
- Intercoler pipework
- 4 Bar sensor
Don't got the graph on "stock" as anyway without mapping was faster already.
Graph (Narco Tuning):
dyno-jpg.128987

Resoults: 326.6lb/ft (442.8 NM) and 225.4HP on wheels.

Will remapping effect my 12 month warrenty iv just took out with the new motor?
Also why are the clicking/ticking noises when ya park up n turn engine off after a good ride?? Is that normal? Is it just cooling down?? All help apriciated, thank you

Just picked up my car Sat.

Was expecting a bit more power as I have full Miltek exhaust & Sports CAT plus a Wagner Intercooler and DV+

It drives much faster as can be expected but they mentioned as it's DSG they couldn't get it to hold on the rolling rd so figures might look a bit low!

After reading up on this. It seems that the DSG won't give the top readings from a rolling rd unless I get a DSG map then the gears will hold in manual mode.
I've seen plenty of people with Graphs etc with the DSG so this is new to me and as I'm not running really high power the DSG map is not really worth it. I'm still a little confused as what this all means in the real world but as I said before it's huge improvement!

It's got nothing to do with holding the gears, it's the built-in torque limit of the dsg box that's the issue. Some tuners can mask the torque going to the box without the need to remap the dsg so this is your best. A dsg remap is only really needed at stage2+ onwards where you need to increase the clamping power of the clutch packs.

Another happy R-Tech customer with Stage 2+ & DSG remap today - 360bhp and 392ftlb
Milltek TBE, Revo CAI, RS4 PRV, Autotech HPFP, Rev G diverter valve
Previous map was an unknown - felt noticeably quicker than 260bhp but a load better now.

OK Cheers for that I must admit I've had my head on these figures and graphs rather than just recognising that the car is actually doing pretty well considering its just an A3 and not an S3
I still might get the DSG map and hopefully it will compliment the ECU map. Been thinking of the Haldex map too!! Addicted : )
