The Audi S3 8V is a very tunable car. Because of the massive power and torque gains it produces when tuned, when torque exceeds 500Nm it is time to remap the gearbox too.
This particular model comes with a DSG6 gearbox that was left stock, as it was on the verge of needing and not needing to be tuned.
It was bare stock when first tuned with an #Etuners Stage1 ECU remap for 98RON. From 302bhp it made 347bhp with software only. Then an Eventuri carbon intake kit was installed. Without any changes in the software the car was tested on dyno again. It produced 367.5bhp back to back.! An excellent upgrade for an otherwise stock car.
