209 PS output power in the S3 is a good basis but with this tuning guide you can reach up to 400 PS steadily and safely. Our goal is to present you a guide for sustainable tuning, so you can enjoy it for a long time. We show you all the steps and everything you need.


Year of manufacture:

2000 – 2002 (AMK)

1998 – 2000 (APY)

Engine Code:

  • APY
  • AMK

Installed in:

Audi S3

You need this extra to make it last:

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!

For higher mileage, we recommend fitting a sports clutch so that the extra power can be put on the road.

As with level 1, we recommend 102 octane fuel. Again you should replace the pressure hose with the Forge hose!

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.

Das brauchst du extra, damit es lange hält:

Um eine Leistung von 400 PS zu fahren, musst du deine Pleuel durch H-Schaft Pleuel und Schmiedekolben ersetzten. Hierfürm haben wir ein komplettes Rundum-Sorglos-Paket aus Pleueln und Kolben!. Außerdem ist ein Sportkupplungs-Kit erforderlich. Beim Auspuff solltest du zu einer 76 mm Abgasanlage greifen. Damit die Öltemperatur im gesunden Bereich bleibt, muss zwingend ein Ölkühler verbaut werden!

BAR TEK-TIP!

Für diesen Umbau brauchst du eine gute Softwareabstimmung. Dazu kannst du uns dein Steuergerät zusenden oder dein Fahrzeug direkt auf unserem 1000 PS MAHA-Allrad-Leistungsprüfstand abstimmen lassen.
