Amazing results. Glad you got it all sorted in the end and you have the performance you wanted.
Question about the plots.
You have STD & Forge Intake, then Superchips and REVO. Where the Superchips and REVO runs with or without the Forge Intake, i.e. where they done with the standard air intake?
PS: Are AmD only based in Essex now? Has the Bicester unit gone now? (I'm so out of touch these days)
Errrm.. Its about £500 for the clutch plate and cover then you will need a new flywheel from audi which is £580 and labour to fit it all, about £1400 all in
Not cheap but well worth it I think..
The clutch on the 2.0t FSI engines are all Dual mass flywheels, so the flywheel wears with the clutch, if you dont change it with the clutch itself then your not getting 100% of the benefit from the new clutch, and as the labour is a big portion of the cost its 'advisable' to change it at the same time, trust me, I would have rather left the standard flywheel in the car but everyone I spoke to with experience of this advised me to go the route I did..
Iggu I just wondered did your workmate pull through or not cause be shame if he didnt since he kinda inspired you to go for it, guess if he did then he'll be taking a very quick drive in your car huh, lol
sorry to earwig but what was the tesco advice, I've always run v-power in the past, used tesco 99 in last two tanks and have been impressed, but gettin revo'd 2 morra and want to do the right thing
Iggu, on the basis of your report and a couple of other factors I went Revo today!!
Carl was talking about you and mentioned you were happy with it too.
I will post figures once it's settled and been to Regal's RR
Hi...I've lurked around this forum for a few days,and I have to thank a number of you for the answers to a lot of questions.
Thanks to Iggu,I've been able to decide on AMD as the tuning shop to go to,and to Shaun from AMD also for the very open advice about what and what not to bother with.
So....next week my S3 gets the remap only at this stage,and anything else can wait a bit until I've seen what that's like.
Hopefully I'll get the RR figures from doing just the remap and see how they compare with Iggu's more comprehensive mods.
Coming from a heavily modified Escort Cosworth a few years ago(an ex GpN tarmac rally car) I'm not rushing into the expensive mods right away!
It's also been an eye-opener to find that some dealers are quite Ok with engine mods,whereas my local ones definitely aren't.
I have REVO Stage only on my S3 with no other mods and cant recommend it enough.
Simple `plug and play`, stealth mod that makes a HUGE different to the car.
Apart from the power and torque increase the only difference you will notice is slight flutter from the turbo when you open the taps and a higher pitch, more audible turbo whistle.
Do it, you wont regret it.
It was after chatting to PaurAr over the phone that I went for Revo. Its simply brilliant - transforms the car from a good one into a truly great one IMO. It won't unsettle the car's attitude or civilised demeanour - I run my two baby daughters round in mine every day: its no widowmaker trust me.
And you won't get better service than AmD and Shaun. Please say hello from me and tell him the car is running as sweetly as the day I drove it out of his workshop - if not more so.
You've made a wise move - keep us informed on your results.
I've been thinking about having it done for a few weeks(well almost as soon as I bought the car in fact!),but didnt want to jump in before reading up,and before the engine was loosened up a bit.
It definitely needs more torque,and more power won't be a bad thing either.
What I didn't want to do was to destroy the civilised nature of the car,as I really don't need another car like the Escort I had.
I was advised when I bought that monster that it would either kill me or cure me of needing cars like that again and it did....15mpg at best and 5 mpg quite easily,as well as very snappy handling when pushed.
Very happy with the S3 but can't wait till next week from reading what all you guys have done.
South east here,hence AMD seemed a good bet,given all of the good feedback from here.
He He, not quite local to me then.
If you had been within sensible driving distance you could have taken mine for a spin to get a feel for a `mapped only` car.
Anyway, the trial software will give you a flavour, in fact its pretty close to the software you get when money has exchanged hands.
