First mods + map complete - questions and a concern while driving in “D”….


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, hopefully you can give me some advice or dissipate my concerns!

I have a 2009 A3 TFSI and recently had a turbo back Cobrasport exhaust (resonated/sports cat) and Ramair oversize intake fitted plus a remap.

1) Car sounds great and drives well in Sport or manual mode. When driving in “D”, if I give it anymore than light throttle, it is as if the turbo if fluttering and feels like I’m going to destroy the turbo.

Remap yielded 252bhp and 287lbs/ft.

I spoke with the tuner and he stated:

“Hi , that is the turbo shuffling .
Very common on the tfsi engines special when is in D drive mode because the engine torque limiters been setup for manual mode to drive hard
”.

which seems bizarre to me and I cannot find anything about it online.

 

2) I was very excited to be seeing somewhere nearer 270bhp+ from the research I’ve done but the tuner insists that no more power is available unless I get an FMIC which also surprised me.

I'm basing this off people achieving similar figures after a remap from an otherwise stock car.

I have pestered the tuner and will be going to show him this week but would like to get you guys thoughts too as we only have one tuner in Jersey and he specialises in Jap cars.

Hi sounds like the boost control valve on the turbo is not set quite right, but the question is why do you need so much power to drive on Jersey or is it for drag racing on the 40mph bits of road.

Steve.

Thanks Steve.

Mainly for a little fun on the straights but also safer overtaking of cyclists and tractors.

We also have RWYB sprint sessions and autocross (which I wouldn’t use this for!) as well as trips to France and the UK to visit family 😁
 

There are people daily driving 800bhp+ GTR’s here and it’s not that uncommon for people to modify their cars.
