This is Scott from Taiwan 😀 I am here since January but was just lurking around and watching everybody's build thread.
After 4 months waiting, dealer told me the car has finally arrived and asked me if I would like to see the car before the official pick-up date, it was really excited for me so I went to the dealer....
Car Spec: LapizBlue | 7-Speed DSG (DQ381) | DCC | Dynaudio | Pretonia |ACC
My previous car is AUDI A3 Sportback 2.0T FWD DSG, and was running Pagpart's EFR7163 big turbo kit that made 530WHP & 660NM. The reason I got rid of my 7163 A3 is because I would like to play something different but AWD car, running big power 530WHP on a FWD car was really really terrible once WOT, kind of scary to drive the car at that time.
I recently discovered the VWR OEM+ remaps and have to admit they have marketed it extremely well, I haven’t seen many people’s review on the maps as of yet so would be interesting to hear that.
Interestingly enough they are stating 370ps for stage 1 and I know there are a small amount of horror stories of turbos blowing so I wonder what their stance is if this happens under there map considering what they are saying below.
Through our manufacturer relationship, we are uniquely positioned to tap into a vast knowledge base and resources network. OEM+ software will never overstress the inherent hardware systems to the point of pushing turbochargers, cooling and other heat sensitive engine components beyond their intended limits”
Also states you they will flash the car back to “true stock” as it was before, not sure if this is availible at any time for servicing but would be a definite plus if so!!
So in August I traded my Manual 7R in for a DSG one (65 plate with 23k on clock), I bought the DSG for many reasons but mainly due to wanting to take it to Stage 1. After doing lots of research now I am slightly hesitant
Would turbo failure be less likely on a car which has more miles problem free? I understand there is an issue with balancing but would this have become apparent earlier or are turbos still just as likely to blow on high miles - This goes for after going stage 1 too?
I currently have 722H
£1-2k is hefty (for me) so on one hand I'm thinking leave it but on the other I know there are many people out there running tunes with no issues whatsoever! A DSG map is definitely on there cards though without a doubt.
** PS apologies I know the turbo failure topic has been beaten to death 9 billion times **
