Default GOT POWER? chip tuning too soon or not?

Has anyone that has an 06 A-3 2.0t chipped there car yet? Wetterauer or Upsolute (only two I could find already availiable) or is the general census that we should wait for APR or AWE (or equivalent) to come up with a product. I am going to do turbo upgrades as soon as they are availiable but i dont know how long that technology will take to come out. Or has it. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Hey , Nice car , must be fun.
If i were you , I would be as patient as possible ( I know its hard )
But you want only the best for your ride.
I have APR in my 03 1.8t , and I love it.
Either wait for APR , or GIAC. The rest dont cut it .

No.
I havent heard of those two.
MTM or nuespeed might do something. You should wait for APR or GIAC though.

Nice car, what wheels are those the audi calito or after market? I have a 3.2 and was considering adding a turbo. I spoke to AMD technik (www.amdtechnik.com). They told me a german company has already produce a lot of mods for the vw golfs which of course can be easily alters for our audis. I would speak to them about a new turbo

no they are the stock two tone 17x7.5 that come with the sport package ( wrapped in 225 45 ) they do look outstanding on the BLk but im going to upgrade them with either 18 or 19" ltw rims ( deep dish)

how do you like the 3.2? a turbo on top of that platform would be naaaaaaaasty!!!!!! thanx for the info on the turbos ill give amd a call

My A3 2.0TDi will get the Revo treatment in September when I take delivery of the car. The advantage for me being, it's switchable.

I don't know what the figures will be, but I expect they will at least match the current crop of remaps, i.e. 180 bhhp and 280ftlb.

I am going with the revo as well after a little more research. It will probably be in the same range of power 240hp/250lbs
