    Hi all

    Just wondering if anyone has done any tuning to their engines, and what has improved. It seems the only things done are remapping.

    Thanks

    Theres a few things you can do, depending on budget. Bigger intercooler, maybe find someone who can hybrid the turbo or see if there is a better turbo option. Take a look at the exhaust also. But whatever way you look at things you will require a remap at some point.
    So really the question is, how far do you want to go with things?
    A remap alone on this will give around 45-50bhp and 95-100Nm torque. You may even see a slightly better MPG on normal driving. However if you want a REAL power remap then let me introduce you to Dahlback racing remaps.
    They are truely the best I've come across. If I can help anymore then give me a shout

    I run a revised map on my '05 A8 3.0Tdi and the difference is significant I think. Had it installed for around 2 years now and whilst I see no gain in economy, the difference in acceleration, towing power and general torque is worth the money.
