So pops and crackles for the PFL is apparently possible...

    Not sure how to feel about this. A company on Facebook have confirmed to me that they can get crackles out of the PFL S3 as they have the available software. They say not a lot of people have the software in the UK.

    They've proposed £350 for a stage 1 remap including crackles and dyno. Figures of 350bhp with a 30% torque increase. They've got good reviews online, however very recent. They've managed to get crackles out of all sorts of different cars.

    As this is unheard of to me, naturally my instinct is to think this is all too good to be true? If any members want to PM and see if I can source more info I will be happy to do so. If all promised is true I can imagine a lot of happy PFL owners.

    Not naming the company as I'm not shaming, just interested in hearing thoughts to be had from other forum members.

    Someone here had a video about a month back with crackles and pops from (what if I remember correctly) was a PFL

    Sounded a bit too extreme and silly though if you ask me... was a bit too much / even more than a factory RS3

    I've spoken to a few tuning companies who have said it possible, they just don't have the software for it.. i'd love to know the company if you wanted to privately message me, as i want it done to my car.. :)

    It would be cool... if you could turn it on and off as and when you wanted... I definitely wouldn't want it like that all the time :D

    I think it is mapped only to over-run in dynamic mode, other modes will be normal

    From what I've read the mapper can customise this depending on what you want?

    I'm tempted to get mine done, the jb4 is great but will never be a true ecu and gearbox remap. Plus having overrun /pops and bangs is tempting

    I really like the video stood still but on the drive by I can only hear pops, I was hoping for rs3 style pops and bangs

    Has anyone got a resonator delete pipe fitted for the 8V S3?
    If so, where did you go for it?

    It sounds broken. Yeah, I know I'm the minority here, but... there's only so much attention a four-pot should draw, IMO. This is today's version of "fart-cannons" to me.

    I disagree, its the height of good taste to have a heavily turbo'd engine pop and crackle, whats not tasteful is to have a massive exhaust on a small capacity N/A engine, such as a Corsa, or what seems to be very popular a 206 HDi (there are at least 4 of these constantly belching out thick clouds of black smoke where i live).

    Also i'd have the unicorn pop and crackle map on my car in an instant.

    I prefer a single crackle when lifting off at high RPM - that's how I tune them on mine, but we can do mild to wild.

    So can you map the crackles etc to a car with the oem cats fitted without any long term damage to them? :)

    I'd be interested in getting something along these lines. Can you get this done on its own or do you need to go stage 1 too? Would love to know some prices.
