    Golf R, auto express test

    Example, 2 identical cars both 300 engine bhp, one FWD one 4wd. You lose power through the transmission before it reaches the wheels, with 4wd you have extra transmission parts to power so get a bigger mechanic loss than FWD... so FWD maybe 280 bhp at the wheels whereas the 4wd car maybe 260bhp...

    Stage 2 remap

    Sounds about right, from what i see of "stages" Stage 1 = stock car with remap Stage 2 = bolt on parts, usually larger intercooler and breather mods such as a turbo back exhaust and induction kit, for which the car can use a more "aggresive" map tailored to the mods ie higher boost, timing...

    What to look out for when buying a used A3 Tdi SE

    I cant think of any known issues really that are a common problem, the cars seem super reliable in that sense. Theres the dual mass flywheel problem but i doubt thatll be the case @ 49k, mine didnt go until 140k lol! when my DMF was going it clattered like hell and the clutch began to slip...

    1.9 pd 105 turbo upgrade options ?

    And i have considered a remap but i know the pd105 has got a **** small turbo as standard and i think it wouldnt handle the extra boost from mapping to 140ish

    1.9 pd 105 turbo upgrade options ?

    As per title :D I wanna look into cutting costs of upgrading to a new car and potentially save some money by upgrading the one i have, as i regularly return around 50mpg and it only costs £120 a year to tax, and the running costs are cheap. I have tried doing a bit of research, and there...

    Dual Mass Flywheel - Rough/Failure

    i drove mine when the flywheel was going, rattled to bits and got bits of **** in the starter motor so that packed in aswell, which could cost you another 200 nicker dependant on how ya go about fixing it. I replaced my flywheel with a light weight solid one, you can hear it clatter on tick...
