Hi All,


So the Oettinger RS3 tune is available in Australia, 430hp 650nm flash tune. :clap:

Im thinking this will be the best flash tune for our model along with ABT / MTM for the best Tunebox.

I havent recieved my car yet to get it done, but aparently a few people have and im hoping they are on this forum and can give us a review of how awesome it is.

For others interested in the tune details of the distributor below:

Nope, its now Volksmuller :)

He just got back from Germany was over visting Oettinger so has alot of info and experience with the brand.

Imagine this tune with the Forge intercooler! omg!!

RS3 Sedan has been announced for Q3 2017 to enter Australia. I dont like the look of it so im sticking with my sexy Hatch!

Hey mate,

So The Oettinger tune does look pretty solid... and Autobild recently tested it and got solid figures ... running 11.85 over the 1/4 mile, down from a stock 12.2

In terms of tuning boxes... I would not list ABT as good tuning box alternative... I had the pleasure of testing one for a week... and it provided basically no performance boost... verified by my Vbox. Autobild also ran a test and got the exact same 0-100 time, and 0.3 seconds worth of gain to 200km/h ( 14.5, down from 14.8 stock)... the Oettinger tune on the other hand, was timed at 12.9 seconds, which is pretty solid.

More than likely though, independent testing of Revo and APR products will yield the best results.

I am currently running a DTUK box, and would put it on the same level as the MTM box... probably in the 13s to 200.

Ive tried the ABT power and power S first hand, the power tune you can feel and its very nice and much smoother than stock.

The Power S is sensational, you can really feel the pull and the top end power is incredible 450hp.

Not sure on how you tested it and what fuel you used, but i do know it made a 20kw 30nm difference in mine when going from shell to BP, which is only what i use now.

Hey mate,

I had it in my car for a full week, from Audi Sydney... I did extensive acceleration tests using my vbox and it yielded very subpar results... I only run BP Ultimate.

Autobild got the same subpar results... 0-100km/h in the same time as stock and 0.3 seconds quicker 0-200.

The reason the ABT unit is not yielding strong results is because it runs stock boost... the others don't ... I have all the Autobild reviews on my I-Pad and will upload them here later.

I have been running a custom box and DTUK box.. and they both yield substantially quicker times than the ABT.... Ive run 3.6 seconds 0-100km/h with them, and only around 4 flat with the ABT box.

I think it would be a great tune. Very impressive numbers. I'm bit surprised that i'll say "only" 11.85 1/4 considering stage 2 tunes MK7R/S# getting 11.5-11.7. I would have thought with 30-40hp more and 70-100+nm more that times would been faster.

You must have got a dud unit or they did the install incorrectly....my unit performed sensationally, the S3 was quick as. The only reason I say dud unit was that the 210kw car that they AU tune was developed on had the same problem after a week. The unit was replaced and bang the power was back up [emoji4].

Thats one reason why i would choose the Oettinger brand for the RS3, they are obsessed with that engine and have been extensively working on it for many many years, alot of their projects also involve huge 500+ hp upgrades for it and also sticking it into a golf R. I trust their experience with that engine and from speaking to their rep they are like every other German brand (ABT MTM) strive for reliability and not just numbers.

Guess it depends on many factors. Those Stage 2 MK7R's are starting to lean on them pretty heavy, including quite a bit of boost, a dsg tune, some hardware mods(downpipe etc).

Id say a high 11 on the 2.5tfsi is still nice and conservative using near stock boost, stock dsg tune, completely stock hardware and plenty left in the tank. The RS3 has to overcome 30-50kg extra too.

Hey mate,

I think comparing privately acheiveed times of 11.7 is very different, from controlled, magazine published times.... case and point... see the attached review of some stage 2 Golf Rs... they arent running anywhere near 11.7... let alone low 12s2511525116

Also, here in Oz... our major sports magazine Motor Magazine, just reviewed a stage 2 APR Golf 7R.... heres the link -->

Hot Tuner 2015 | Harding Volkswagen Golf R (http://www.motormag.com.au/events/hot-tuner/1511/hot-tuner-2015-harding-volkswagen-golf-r/)


and they also reviewed the stock RS3 vs FL A45.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XGCzDV4Zyg

So in the same controlled testing environment, I See a stage 2 Golf running 12.5 and a stock RS3 running 12.2 ... this makes far more sense.

Having both visibilty of Oettinger and APR Guy and trying to have as little biase as possible how far are these cars pushed and which tune would be the less agressive of them? any idea on when you will release the APR numbers.

Stage 2 - what does this consist of as i hear the cat is pretty big and has minimal restrictions on it.

Domino,

If you keen im happy to ask for a group buy (and anyone else who is interested) im getting this intercooler ordered and will be installed as soon as my car arrives :) (8-10 weeks)
Im also tempted on the Oettinger 520hp tune, enquired about it last week.

Then to decide on tune.

Running really well - I can't comment on any others, but I have been in deep with the APR progress since calibration started in the UK last year. One of the calibration cars here had a tuning box & it's now been removed (very similar results to the S3 tuning box vs APR dyno results)

Stage 2 will be downpipe as a minimum, an intercooler will be a big bonus.

Torque holding of the DQ500 is still very impressive in standard form - something the DQ250 is disadvantaged at.

Sounds good, i will be going the forge intercooler route, what downpipes are you recommending for the stage 2. I'm assuming it will be as painful to remove as the S3 downpipe or a little easier?

You guys going to do a TTE500 upgrade or your own borgwarner one? I like what has been done with the S3, not too much torque but huge HP.

remarcabull, im keen on GB, but i won't be spending any money on the rs3 until i grab the keys to a new R8 plus june'ish to decide which direction i'll head

i hope the core is great, because the workmanship on the piping and welds is alibaba spec and flaking paint shows it's just painted and not anodised (i think that may be pre-production on that particular car, at least you'd hope)

when i had rs3 on hoist doing miltek cat bypass, i had a good look at oe dp, you're going to need to remove full front subframe to get that out

i wouldn't run both the catless dp and catless bypass, it'll be too loud and too smelly - you'd need to keep the oe secondary cats

Its avaliable here but are just getting their pricing together. Should be up soon. Im thinking stage 1 with intercooler then once i get bored go for 600hp.

I haven't tried running the 1.0 on the v box. I'm guessing the settings adjust boost, timing & fueling? It only connects to 3 sensors & takes literally 5 mins to install.

keen to do a few more runs over time. Will keep you posted!

p.s I also have another mate running it and he's seen 3.6 on his vbox.

keen to do a few more runs over time. Will keep you posted!

p.s I also have another mate running it and he's seen 3.6 on his vbox.
So you never run default on your dtuk box and jumped to setting 2?

Never ran the Vbox with the other settings. Started off with 1.0 & then the rest. Found 1.2 to be the best setting for
me.

Pulls much harder, turbo kicks in with more urgency at around 3200rpm with each higher setting. 1.3 is a little harsh on the gear changes, you do get some jerky shifts 1-2nd under full load. A TCU tune would be nice

For $1200 landed its good bang for buck Imo.

443hp on the dyno today with Forge intercooler fitted but stock car with APR stage 1 still circa 435hp & 630NM!

I wouldn't expect the intercooler to do much (if anything) for peak power.

Nice, Im getting forge cooler, might keep my eye on this, Domino will be testing out the APR tune, so if all goes well i may try it too.

Only while under boost will the significant gains be had, but some top power as well. If the intercooler is good it will increase efficiency too.

Audi RS3 (8V) Intercooler (http://www.forgemotorsport.com/Audi_RS3_8V_Intercooler--product--1412.html) <-- stock tune with intercooler produces some good gains.

just a correction on that APR dyno plot, those are both apr pulls

stock car with forge cooler + secondary cat delete pulled 380hp on same dyno - here is back to back

so downunder i think it'll be marketed as a 300kw/600nm tune on the conservative side

now the arduous wait for apr aus to release

for those interested in the forge cooler, looking at the instructions, you have to remove all the bumper trim behind the grille as the cooler is much thicker

this means no beuno for those with radar cruise

might have to wait till someone else makes a radar cruise compatible cooler, possibly apr themselves who's cooler on S3 is pure pnp at a time when other suppliers require you to hack the support shroud

Wonder if they did a packge with Stage 1, secondary cat delete and intercooler. I would probably jump on it too.

So when you going to get yours done Domino?

There is no way these cars make 270kw stock, every single dyno I have seen have been 375 to 400hp, like every single one. Im waiting till I have a few thousands km on mine to test for myself, but I am pretty convinced audi were being super super conservative with the stock rating.

No they are right, Audi measure their power figures on a MAHA dyno in specific configurations. The numbers you see are from other dynos under different condition and is possibly the cause of the figures, but of course audi are usually conservative on their numbers, that is fact.

for starters dyno's measure wheel or hub hp, then each dyno performs its own arbitrary calculation to give you engine hp using an 'estimated' drivetrain loss

so all the dyno's you see measuring engine hp are guesstimating at best

only real way to compare stock vs tuned cars is run both on same dyno using wheel hp and calculate the gain as a percentage over stock

I know that. My usual tuning place is notorious for under reading so we will see

They are available world wide including Australia. Get them to check on their servers, it exists. I bet 1/2 of them dont know because they havent looked.

APR directly have come out and said its avaliable. So get them to physically check for it.

My RS3 edges closer..... its on the boat! so keen, and a few reports have mentioned how good the apr tune is. Might have to try it now its quite cheap :) extra money saved incase of issues.

Got an email from APR directly a few days ago said the RS3 tune is yet to be released, but very soon. Said it would be announced on the website the minute it was available, so keen to know if it is here, and any performance details.
