I'm definitely considering a haldex controller but should I be looking at modifying the factory suspension first as well? Also eddyg did you get your fmic installed here? Just curious as keen to get one.

BTW. It appears that APR in Oz are now doing an FMIC. It looks nicer than the one I've got, it integrates better with the bumper. With my FMIC you have to remove the metal bump bar, which I wasn't happy with. It's announced on the Ozzie Audi forum:

Again, I'm not sure that this is needed by your average NZ car, only if you have lots of hot weather and or do drag racing.

Cheers, Ed.

Thanks Eddy. What is everyone's thoughts on hybrid turbos? Found a guy that sells k04s with a larger compressor for $1650. Options include port/polished turbine housing ($125), ceramic coating ($100), and clipped turbine wheel ($100).

Should prevent the lag from upgrading to a larger turbo but not as proven.

My concern would be getting a custom MAP for it. I'm not aware of anyone in NZ that can cutom chip tune modern VAG cars.
For clarity, yes, they can install already created MAP's for OEM setups, but not cutom Dyno one off's.

If you use a Ko3 Hybrid you wont need to be remapped.. flow of turbo is being increased with the reduction of heat. (or so they say anyway)

If your going Hybrid in your car.. it needs the K03 Exhaust Side and the Ko4 Compressor Side..

You increase the Exhaust side to K04 they say it wont function any more

AmD have maps off the shelf for the Hybrid turbos and even maps for the bigger turbos if you look on their website

Thanks Beeker I was also worried that I wouldn't be able to get a remap done for it. I mate wait until I hear of some one in Australia succeeding with the set up and then ask them what they've done etc.

If you adapt any part of the cars engine, you will technically need a remap. If its a minor change, maybe not. To get performance from any mods or keep within safe tolerances, any any reasonable change will require a remap. Remember, under WOT you're working of a MAP, and not dynamic.

Classic example if someone at work that professionally installed a larger turbo on their Evo. They now do the 1/4 1 second slower that before. Once a custom computer is installed, it'll go ~1/2 faster than before. Another example is when I installed a Milltek exhaust and DP on my MTM A4TQM. It dropped !! 8KW over std. It needed a remap.

AU generally gets the same ECU#'s as NZ, ie Eurospec. Generally AU will be a good source of compatible bits. Their fuel is also ~similar.
GIAC has a good name also. Have a snoop on www.audiworld.com and post some queries on the Australian forum.

Good call! Sounds like a cheap gain.  ;D

It;s great that cats aren't compulsory here like in the UK. Would it be worth putting in a resonator in the place of the cat or go for straight pipe?

Put the resonator in other wise your car will sound like a honda

None of you mention Paul Watson. I use him for knowledge and bits and pieces on the RS6. Don't know him that well but seems like a nice guy. He REVO'd me.
