An original horsepower of 209 in the S3 is a good starting, but with this tuning guide you can get up to 400 hp reliably and safely. Our aim is to provide you with a guide to long-lasting tuning that will stand you in good stead for years to come. We show you all the steps to take, and everything you need.

2000 – 2002 (AMK)

1998 – 2000 (APY)

  • APY

You don't need any additional components here. Simply install and have fun! No Longlife oil. Better use Castrol Edge 10W-60 oil.

BAR-TEK® TIP!

BAR-TEK® tips:

For vehicles with high power we recommend 102 octane fuel. This reduces the knocking of the engine, giving it more power. Turbocharger and engine should not be too old and in good condition. Also check the red pressure hose on the turbocharger. This is often leaking as it does not tolerate the heat from the manifold. Our Forge silicone hose can help!

You need this extra to keep it long:

To drive 400 PS, you have to replace your connecting rods with H-beam connecting rods and forged pistons. For this we have a complete all-round carefree kit of connecting rods and pistons! A sports clutch kit is also required. For the exhaust you should use a 76 mm exhaust system. To keep the oil temperature in a healthy range, an oil cooler must be installed!

BAR-TEK® TIP!

For this conversion you need a good chip tuning. You can send us your control unit or have your vehicle tuned directly on our 1000 PS MAHA all-wheel dynamometer.
