Hi all sorry to ask am looking at a 2015 two door 1.4 tfsi 123bhp audi A3 was looking at getting it remaped and the figures are showing an extra 57bhp and an extra 62ld/ft now would you notice the difference and is it worth doing?
Having talked to a lot of companies who remap most of them are quoting figures of 25bhp increase and 50nm increase so is 150 bhp increase worth it and 250nm noticeable to be honest after picking the car up on Thursday it does drive well and feels quickish for a 1.4
Celtic Said mine could go to 185 bhp but most of the Tuners I have spoke to are saying 150/155 bhp
You will see that the top companies within the market place have all develop vehicle improvements to similar outputs. Beware of tuners who claim significantly more, it’s either lies hoping that the average customer wouldn’t be able to tell the difference, or the engine is being pushed too hard and will quickly become unreliable
I got my manual 1.8tfsi remapped almost a year ago with a Shark Performance remap at Unit18 in Milton Keynes. Quoted figures are stock: 180PS / 250Nm Tuned: 220PS / 370Nm but I guess there is a little variance in that. I've not had it on a rolling road, and have no plans to.
No issues with the car, definitely pulls better in 3rd gear and up. Happy I got it done as it's added a bit extra to the car and I've had no problems with it.
Yes had it done and to be honest the throttle response seems better and torque is better but at now 150bhp and 250 was not going to set the world alight for a 1.4 and probably would have left it but it was in my head that I wanted it done so am happy with it
