    Posted: 28 August 2017 at 4:04pm

Afternoon all I have just recently purchased a 2007 9n3 GTI after owning a 6n2,  the previous owner told me that he had the car remapped but cant remember the name of the garage or what map was put on it, all he said was the only option he had at the time was optimise it for standard fuel or high octane and he choose high octane, the guy suggested that it would bump up the circa to 200bhp after the remap.

 

The issue I am currently having is the vehicle is currently fully standard apart from the remap that I am aware of, however when i drop the car into 4th gear and accelerate it feels as if it also takes a minute to realise i have put the foot down and seem likes it misfires before picking up speed, I have felt it once or twice in 3rd but it is almost everytime in 4th I feel it. Could this be related to the car being remapped or could it be something as simple as plugs? 

 

Also wondering what mods most people start off with, I have been told to do miltek exhuast, SFS oversize turbo intake pipe, forge throttle body hose, airtec fmic, forge 007 diverter valve, secondary air intake delete and to delete N valves. 

 

Is this the usual mods and if so what order do most people do them in and what are the benefits of these mods?

Also any links to buy these mods + guides on doing them?  

 

Thanks

If you have just purchased the car, the best first step is a full service, cam belt if one is fitted and have the computer scanned for any fault codes.

Sounds like the MAF causing the spluttering before take off,but since it's been mapped you would have to run a live data check on it to be sure.

If you are coming over to club night next week I have full vagcom and can plug it in and see if it has recorded any faults.
