Recomendations for "Decent" Spark plugs for Revo Stage 3 Map?

    Looking to replace the plugs in my 2007 S-Line with a Revo stage 3 map and DSG stage 2 map. Originals are looking like they are getting a little hot (Running 9 Boost, 6 Fueling and Timing on the SPS switch). Don't really want to adjust the mapping as I seem to have hit a sweet spot (344 Bhp on rollers).

    Any recomendations for decent plugs? I've seen the NGK thread, but if anyone has any personal recomendations with plug codes, it would help.

    Thanks All,

    G

    I run NGK-BKR7EIX at 400bhp. Not had a drama so far.

    NGK BKR7EIX is the popular plug for tuned vehicles. What turbo are you running for Stg3?

    I'd get that map looked at. I am running 320bhp on stock hardware and stage 1.

    By the looks of it he has a 2.0tfsi sline not an S3 so he may be running std injectors, std hpfp?? It's stage 3 for the k03 car = the k04 turbo.

    Nah, I've replaced the turbo (K04) and injectors (S3), and upgraded the HPFP (APR). as well as the intercooler (Airtech) The thing is, don't forget Revo run slightly different "Stages" to the norm....IE, Stage 1 is expected to run between 230 and 260 BHP. 2 is 240 - 270. This (Stage 3) is said to offer up to 350bhp. It's not a custom map where every pony is wrung out of the engine and, until last night I would have said it doesnt strees the engine (no new internals Rods/Pistons etc). https://www.onlyrevo.com/product-details/software/audi/a3-8p-2003-2012/15/stage-3

    Why "Until last night"?

    ****** thing went pop on me on the A23. Not sure what has gone yet - engine still turns freely, won't fire and before it went there was a hell of a racket from the top-end. Going to get it recovered this morning and see what organs and body parts I need to sell........I'd like to say I'd be better off if I got paid by the inch but then I may just about be able to afford a New Oil Filler Cap....;-)


    If anyone has a half decent 2.0 TFSI (BWA) engine they want to sell, I'm in the market! (Looking to completely re-build, so doesnthave to be perfect).
