thanks for your i was under the impression i had to get a ko3s that ended in serial no 0052 or 0053 but now you have said this i am going to do a lot more research into it as it should be quite easy to locate one now

look into it but my engine, AUQ, is also used in the TT, octavia vrs, leon r (not the cupra r) and anniversay golf.

the AUM powered ones have the same turbo as well and again they are across the board

yeah i dont know about the earlier engine but the later ones recommend 97 min. i know i can few a difference when i run 95 compared to the usual 99 and thats on the standard map. for the £3 a tank its worth the extra money

Who did the remap then? Have you upgraded the recirculating valve? Are there any air leaks in the intake system?

more bhp.com in crewe did the re map they took car out on a live run to check all air flow and everything else was ok, then took out ecu as older model can not be re mapped by just plugging in, car does feel different but i have been in a couple of re mapped vw golfs and feel much quicker, did take car to votex in congleton originally for a revo map only for them to plug in and tell me cant do this until get map of revo, still waiting for their call 4 weeks on hence why i took it more bhp in crewe.

which one is yours?

celtic list a few:
1.8t 147hp
1.8t 150hp
1.8t 177hp
1.8t 180hp

it would appear that they can all be mapped to 225 hp and 217 lbft except the 150 which come out with 217 hp and 255 lbft, wierd.... what's yours running?

id be worried about celtic saying they cn get 217 from the smallest turbo. as even with vag specialists aggressive maps only really give 200bhp, with additional mods, is putting alot of strain on it - hense why most change it.

same with their 225bhp claim with regards to the k03s turbo again your getting into most companies stage 2 maps with additional mod.
