I wonder how the Ali block copes with power hikes Especially as cylinder walls are plasma coated. That is download lagu percuma dxh crew very good question Plasma coating has been around for a while and has been used to provide strength to lightweight components such as alluminium blocks in many motorsport applications and high end performance car engines.
In theory it shouldn't be an issue, but in reality?? I guess we will find out soon. You sure Caney as the 8Vs were already about and only jumped 20bhp with a map afaik?
The supercharged 3.
Amazing car with a great engine - had mine for over two years but replaced it with my current 8V. The thing is Dell, Audi who is responsible for power line from pole to house mess around re-boring and replacing pistons if an Vermicular Iron block went bye bye anyway Edit - out of interest do you know the difference between current S5 and RS5 engines?
Latest RS5 is a V6 with twin turbo's versus a single turbo in the S5. Power output's are not hiked by much over previous models but the torque increase and lighter weight is where Audi have improved performance.
I don't know if the new V6 is the same in both cars though I would imagine it is though. Will be interesting to see what extra ooomph the tuners can tease out of the new V6 turbo engines - maybe it will be payback time!
I know MRC might be either 'optomistic' with their dyno, or just pushing for peak numbers rather than flat torque etc etc, but on a map seems like they've got more to play with now.
T has started a new thread 'Facelift engine changes' in General Chat section which hopefully will begin to tease out all the updates that Audi have made to the 5 cylinder motor.
The new Borg Warner turbo is upgraded over the previous model, intake plumbing is different, the IC is supposed to have improved flow but externally looks the same as the old oneand an extra row of injectors have been added but not sure if this is just to do with emissions or helps with power too - Lots of new things to learn about!
MRC stage 2 RS3 doing the business
So shortly after buying my RS it was apparent it had been tuned but thee was no paperwork to corroborate this idea.
Stage 1 mate, top run was I spoke to MRC today and surprisingly they said they wouldn't recommend it if you are not de-catted as it can damage them i still have the primary in place and that it is not switchable with the sport button.
Posted 09 November - PM. Rather than start a fresh thread with a similar title, i thought i'd jump on this one. Who is MRC tuned with crackle overrun enabled?
How do you find it and what mods are you running? I figured that with the 8V having it with CATs in place, it was an odd comment. Anyway just wanted to gauge others experiences of this. Are you running full decat? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk. Yes mate. Posted 10 November - PM. What isn't J running would be the easier question. Register now!

When i get the RS3 done i'm going to them. Monopole with the 8V has had a map from them recently i believe, he might be able to give some feedback.
Wouldn't take my car anywhere else. Doug and Minhea remotely are genius's and Doug is an absolute gent to boot. You don't win the Audi Tuner tuner of the year award like 9 years on the bounce by being mediocre.
Did my original engine and gearbox map and also the fine tuning to the mappings after my TTE was fitted. I'd have gotten them to do the whole fitment etc etc if they were closer to home. I was there Wed this week. I've not really had the chance to experiment in full in different conditions yet as been too icy and not too much driving at other times.
I also had the gearbox map. Having come from a pretty highly tuned STi and used to smooth dyno graph lines, I am a bit surprised to see so many 'wiggles' which seems to indicate to me that the map hasn't been adjusted here and there to be the best that it can be : indeed the 'post map run' says Run1 on it. I was also short on time, so it was a rush job. As I say. I haven't managed to use the car much since my visit other than on the motorway, so I am reserving judgement as to whether I am totally happy yet.
I absolutely got the impression that if I had any concerns that Ben and co would do what they could to sort things out as a lovely and professional bunch of people Go to MRC Tommy, you won't be disappointed.THE 810BHP *MRC TUNED* AUDI RS3
Whilst they are a little more expensive as they don't do offers, that's well justified as you get a true custom map for you car that's mapped through the OBD!
Their results speak for themselves and the fact they continually win "tuner of the year" says it all. I'd say they're arguable one of the best in the business. I'm back there next Friday for a health check and DSG service. Tweaks maybe done via OBD port afterwards I believe.
Suffice to say and without going over old sh1t, I told MRC before hand, if the health check is done to their satisfaction and they find no issues with the engine - then they can go ahead and do their magic. Doug and his team did the evo3 IC fitment etc. I'm back up there in March for the follow up check and fine tune and tweak to what is an excellent job they did on the day, PS and Nm. Take from what everyone here has said, they are THE Audi tuning specialists.
Lucky man to have Mihnea do his magic on your car. That man is indeed a master of the tuning craft. Thinking about when I first came across Mihnea is a real blast from the past. Mihnea and Doug were regular contributors to the S2 Forum - which was a really good source of practical information when I had my RS2. Mihnea was there with his laptop, tuning and engineering expertise.
Was looking forward to seeing Doug's S2 in the flesh - seem to remember it arriving or departing on a trailer. Still haven't managed to get an S2 in my life. Nine years since I had an RS2 in my life.
Most standard Cars seem to push out or so. At that new torque level it must be manic?! Sent from my STV using Tapatalk. What is "nf formula" - racefuel? Good numbers. As above NF has been around a number of years now and works really well as an Octane Booster. Ok, so a octane booster and how much does it need for 55 litre in our cars? So, just with KN air filter which probably does only give few hp if even that an d the booster it gave 66 dynohp more, incredible, it feels unbelievable?
If no remap was made, how healthy is it for engine to drive it on 98 or Vpower fuel after that? Does the engine adapt back down again without any problem? Somebody has done it, just asking how it works? Nice figures Caney! The octane booster allows the tuner to dial in a bit more timing so probably gives bhp more when added on these engines.
You will get even more with racefuel or ron! But do you have the possibilty than to swap between two maps? It seems that the tuner has it tweeked max for the high ron and for instance VPower has another settings or do you just go back to the tuner to put it back?
What is the trick to the gearbox, have seen few who has "done" the gearbox, meaning what, software or hardware or both? Anyway fantastic numbers. The launch rpm increase is only when you push past the kick down stop, otherwise it's add per Audi standard launch rpm.
The guys at MRC said the extra cooling will allow the engine to run more boost without the need to adjust anything! I also own a tuned S5 B8 3. Edited by Caney, 01 January - AM.Jump to content.
Defo the place to go. Wow bhp s3, is it an 8v mate. That's really impressive, can't wait to see your results buddy. Posted 01 July - PM. Dave Henderson by any chance?
Posted 05 July - AM. Does anyone know what car mrc tubing give to you if your taking car there and leaving it for a week? A hp RS Posted 05 July - PM. Posted 06 July - AM. MRC car here Currently stage 2 but more to come Register now!
Stock numbers were pretty good to start with as well at ps. Does anyone know what the correction is based on? I notice it shows a 1ps correction from to on the standard run but they correct it from down to in the next one. Air is more denser in its oxygen content when cold but much leaner when hot so they do a correction for it. This makes all the final figures a level playing field mate.
Thanks Dell, I thought it could be something like that although still confused on why such a big difference when done at the same place on the same day?
Still mighty impressive for a tune and decat though. Surely they get a ticking too? Cause it's pissing me off lol. My FL car had been running the MRC custom map sort of a stage one and a half for a couple of months now so I thought I would put it on the local dyno Surrey Rolling Road to see how it's running and check if everything is as it should be.
It ran at MRC with the dyno cell ambient temp at 27 degC. Recent Dragy results also showed the car performing well at 3. So I am pretty happy with that and the car is a fantastic daily driver.
I have to admit that I am now struggling to justify the addition of the Milltek down-pipe which will enhance power by approx another 15ps and around an extra 20nm of torque. Probably going to opt to spend the money on suspension and brakes upgrades which will compliment the engine performance mods. Just wish I knew what all the graph stuff meant.
Fantastic for stage 1. Totally get what your saying about th front pipe - hardly worth it. Should be over BHP between them.
In Audi 'face lifted' the RS3 as well as making some significant engine changes. Our upgrades for the RS3 8V: can be seen here. Similar to our massively popular GT-R stage 1 modification, our RS3 stage 1 upgrade involves fitting Milltek stainless secondary decat pipes and recalibration of the engine management system.
Owners can expect a power increase from the standard bhp to around bhp and a torque increase to lbft. We also offer a simple remap of your car, retaining the standard exhaust system, however the power and torque figures obtained are reduced to bhp and lbft.
The engine remap can be carried out through the OBD port under the dashboard, which means the ECU does not need to be removed and quick revisions or reverting the car back to standard can be completed within minutes. Stage 2 utilises the Milltek decat pipes from Stage 1 and adds a larger Forge intercooler, with a modified standard crash bar. The improved flow and cooling characteristics allow us to further tweak the engine mapping, liberating another 20 bhp.
Power jumps to around bhp with lbft of torque available from as little as 2, rpm. This huge increase in performance gives not only a thrilling ride but the power delivery is smooth and progressive with no loss in drivability.
It takes 5 hours to fit the intercooler and decat pipes to a standard car and customers are welcome to wait in our waiting area or arrange for a courtsey car to explore the local area.
