  1. The definitive remapping thread

    Probably, a tune could just have fuel/ignition and pedal tweaks so can be somewhat cross flashed, you'd have to ask them
  2. The definitive remapping thread

    All ME7 is fundamentally the same to a large degree, just various evolutions and parts differences of course, this in turn adds maps/data and changes a few things. AUE/Early 2.8 24v models have Inlet cam timing but no exhaust, Nokenwellen Einlass maps are there (NW-E abbrv. you should get used to), Auslass (NW-A) are not, generally everything else pretty much the same. Values will change due to a lack of input data when there are maps missing - if trying to define you need to look at axis data rather than cell data if using, for example, a dual VVT def file or R32. BDE/BDF - late 24v's had both inlet and exhaust cam timing, I think the differences between these are number of 02's due to exhaust differences, but never really done anything with BDF apart from some quick def's. BFH R32 MK4 - Pretty much the same as BDE only obviously the displacement changes make differences, max torque across CAN etc are upped so some values different like that. They used larger parts like MAF so HFM map values/limit's different, low flow rates etc - flow across throttle body and general flow/tb/maf related values are changed due to this. MK5 R32 - Part changes and increased limit's as above really, slight variances again in torque limit values across can and things like that, cam maps, homo/stratified injection - general evolution of maps there, some other things I can't think of the moment. AUDI TT - Both mk1 and mk2 TT's use different HFM main maps like Porsche use on the ME7.8 and later ME9 stuff which in turn changes the structure of some maps, A3 ecu's I have done matched the mk5 one's though - everything else I think was pretty much the same as mk5. DSG/Auto v Manual - if doing an engine swap with gearbox change you should use an ecu with that gearbox as you can get all sorts of pedal/flow/rpm play ups, use the ecu for the gearbox is the easiest way really. That's just some off the top of my head, but even with these kind's of evolutions, the vast majority of data is fundamentally the same or similar, not sure where I "stated they are all the same" as I have always said AUE are inlet vvt but it's what you can see on the screenshots in the backgrounds or map data shown; Example - HFM (maf) variances as stock - MLHFM main map flow kg/hr and min flow; BDE v BFH v BUB In terms of data stacking/location, as they are all C166 evolutions they are very similar, like the background's in the screenshots as opposed to, in this case, individual data in a cell; So they are very similar and yet can be different, but no, no special differences between any 2.8's, just some market variances, part/ecu evolutions and more or less data to play with ultimately!
  3. Need help!!!

  4. Little update; In about 5/6 weeks I am either going to stick it on ebay or remove the LPG and big turbo it I think, it's too nice for the latter though really! It's currently logging around 150g/s which equates to somewhere around 190hp (lost a dyno plot for 195hp for it so seems the same), also logged 206lb/ft all at 16/17psi of boost. I bumped it up to 20 and 22psi but throwing a DV code, which I thought was on it's way out so going to replace the 710N/P, it will be further tuned though this week.
  5. Little beasty, I'm sure we can let him off for a lack of cylinders.... always nice to see a lithe mk1 spanking the usual car mag cover stars let's be honest!
  6. Mk3 side skirts

    Should be able to hunt one down, few shops were advertising the B41 if that's it, Google's your friend peeps! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Volkswagen-Rocker-Molding-Strip-1H0-853-985-B41-/282439200209?hash=item41c2b02dd1:g:alYAAOSwHptY98XH

  8. turbo thoughts - am i right?

    A new Wuxi Holset would probably come to £500-550 or so, linked one in the "What turbo" thread is a 12cm too - only a few hundred more for a new Holset, what I would probably go for. You'd be surprised what you can fit in an old Rocco bay;

    Pretty cool vid showing the combustion process;

    I remember, did you take a pic of it on your drive one time? Last pic I saw of it I think - my fave/possibly 2nd fave car ever! Toss up; Or (with silver Azev A's crystal/red rear lights); EDIT: No, that Awesome GTI mk1 is officially my fave car of all time (alongside Aventador TT).
  11. When you say switching itself off do you mean closes the throttle? That usually means running lean and is what the ecu does, can be various reasons though, MAF (HFM), dodgy injectors, fuel pump problem etc. If it's turning the electrics off then it's usually a short/wiring problem, could be wires or perhaps a loose battery shorting? VCDS/VAG COM is your friend though!
  12. Bought a few weeks ago from a friend as it was too good to pass up, has had loads of work done and was sat in the unit for months due to too many cars. I was thinking about a big turbo build on it but it's a good daily for someone and want a 6 cylinder for that - as such, sensible offers or would swap for a V6 4 motion. 51 reg 1M Leon Cupra AUQ 180hp 133k - 3 owners High end LPG system with switchable button 11 months MOT New brake lines, some sill welding and other bits done for MOT New discs and pads all round about 1k ago New k03s turbo CHRA around same time New flywheel and clutch at the same time New battery Elec windows, mirrors, sunroof, Audi darker dash 17" Audi alloy wheels BMC Induction kit BAD BITS: Cosmetic really, there's a bit of paint that seems to be coming off on near side rear (near the arch - will get a close up if need be) - about a few inches in size, looks like white speckle. Also the sill down that side was welded for the MOT (by one of the lads who's a pro welder) and only quickly tidied up as the car needed to leave the unit sharp ish due to space, doesn't bother me to be honest as I don't notice it but will add pic. Steering wheel is worn, one of the glove box arms is broken although it open and closes properly and the rear window wires don't do much save for one or two of them. Will be sporting a Stage 1 or 2 map at your request (195-230hp), although the stage 2 will need front mount and de cat to get the most - can get de cat and mid pipe done in mild for you for £120 max. I've upped the speed limiter and rev limit, proper dyno developed tunes and can add some bits like pops on over-run etc if need be. Manchester area and ideally want a V6 4 motion swapped for it if I can, no rush to sell but offers welcome.
  13. turbo thoughts - am i right?

    £200-250 Holset's are usually just 2nd hand, they can be hit or miss with how good they are, some are in need of a rebuild - budget £450-500 for a remanufactured one already done for you on the bay!

    It was Dubsport's I think, Ian Birch build back in the day, Awesome were probably still in Rawtenstall back then with their Peachy mk1 clipper kitted VR6 - God I love a clipper kitted mk1! It was around the time video's were made via potatoes too!
  15. Big Dub

    Ian Birch built it didn't he when he used to own Dubsport? I grew up with Dubsport on one side and Awesome GTI on the other, used to see al their creations all the time, good inspiration when you got sick of projects! Last I heard about it was by a photographer who took some pics of it about 2 years ago.
