The rods are the biggest let down, know one knows what they can hack. They have been out the window at various BHP's even around the 260 mark which is natural remap territory on a k04 setup. So it's a chance you take.

CVH has a strong bottom end, as already posted the weak point is the rods on an AGU

Weak point of all 1.8T's!

my friend i want more power than 150bhp


a remap will give you more than near 200hp. Have you tried that?

yeah have tried that with my last engine was running 240bhp but now i want to sit in the 300 - 400bhp mark or in the middle ;)

350 horses will be nasty on the front wheels. You'll pull your steering apart and probably tourque steer into another car or a kerb in the process.
80% of your posts are total tripe, as they are mostly replies to sh1te posts created by the morons that, unfortunately this forum attracts.

Very much doubt it was 240hp unless it was a remapped BAM / amk. 240hp is optimistic on a remapped k03s.

Traction, ESP and a good diff will aid that, no way will that be controllable in the first 3 gears with that power (350), no matter how the dogs bollox you think you are with your right foot, you will be loosing acceleration potential and lap time whilst wheel-spinning out of bends into a barrier.

I was in a A3 AGU 1.8T round the 400BHP mark keep up with the new TT-RS (mapped) on the straights all the way, downside was it was uncontrollable below 70, even worse if you hit a bend
