^ that's my concern.. I'm only keeping my car for three years but i'm worried that the turbo will blow or something like that.. Maybe the MTM is the way to go for me
I'm worried that when i trade it into porsche for the new cayman gt4, they'll plug it in and refuse the trade in.. any chance of that?
check back here next Wednesday as 'someone' is about to be the first to get a S3 map from a certain 3 letter company ;-)
No Chance, they wouldn't give a damn. Even if you traded it into Audi with a flagged TD1, you'd find it would disappear once in their ownership and be sold with a full warranty! One set of rules for them, another for us
There is a flash counter correct, however as I say again I am unaware of any car that has been flashed back to stock by Revo having had an issue with a warranty claim.
I was intouch with APR a few weeks back about them using my car for tests on the new stage 1 software. I saw an advert on facebook looking for certain cars so i got intouch. He said i was first to call and would definetly be back intouch with details.
Looks like that's not happening then
Why does Revo's 1.8TFSI tune has so poor of an output?
Seems like you were just not that interested in fine tuning this engine (on the A3 at least).. like 'bleh, lets just focus on the S3 and deliver a mediocre map for the 1.8t owners'
The first tune on your link shows post map power output of 225 - 235 BHP against quoted stock of 177BHP, isn't that about a 27% - 33% increase? Maybe I'm not getting it, but this seems pretty decent to me?
The equivalent power gains on an S3 would deliver 381ps - 400ps, or 376BHP - 394 BHP?
The thing is, the same REVO gets 250hp and 300 lb/ft from the 1.8TFSI A4 & A5 tune. So why should the map for the A3 has less output?
APR is putting down the same, +-250hp /300 lb/ft (and that's being conservative due to dq200, they got +330 lb/ft on US 1.8 TFSI version wich uses dq250 6 speed gearbox)
The engine is reaaally tune friendly, thats my point, those 225-235 BHP are 'tuning boxes results', and don't get me wrong, they are great numbers, just not the best achievable.
I still feel that knocking on 300 bhp for a production mass production two litre is pretty high output. I think at that a stock engine is going to be highly stressed and personally worry about the extra load modifications make. I know the engine may be capable of much more but with suitable component changes perhaps?
