A1F's 1.4 TFSi is now TMC'd - circa 160PS

Postby Jae » Mon Jan 31, 2011 1:37 pm

We received today the TMC box for the A1. Have to say, its bloody easy to install, which was a good job as its chuffing cold in Munich today! 4 bolts to undo, 3 cables to change over to the new loom, fix power, fix ECU (1 cable tie). Job done. It seriously took no more than 10 minutes!

Ive only been out briefly, but it has made the car more eager. I will take a look at warm performance later and also look at economy too over the coming weeks.

Looking forward to back to back test times and MPG.

If it is working well you should really notice the differance and i hope better MPG. driving normal.
The 1.4 s-tronic i drove saturday felt very quick to 0 to 80mph then it seemed to drop off which confirms my figures to the ibiza Cupra.
I have worked out our Cupra. does 0 to 60 in 6.9 sec and 0 to 100 16.0 sec 180 BHP 140 MPH MAX
The 1.4 s-tronic is 0 to 60 in 8.9 and 0 to 100 in 23 sec. 122 BHP 126 MPH MAX.
You can see after 60 MPH it starts to run out of puff a little bit.in standard form, but the A1 is no slouch by any means.
Very nice to drive

It would also be nice to know what the top end will do now, they can test that in germany, or on a track.
i would guess about. 135 MPH MAX

If they can get 160 Bhp out of this one then with it being a little lower and a little lighter than the Cupra, there should not be much of a differance at all really. UP TO 100 MPH anyway.

The test times will prove if i am close or not, i cannot wait to see the outcome.

What do you normally put in regular or super ? Referring back to your MPG post about the 130kph to the airport getting 44mpg (6.7l/100km).

VPower 95 is what we've been filling with to date. ill run the tank down before next fill, so that its quicker to "learn" the 100RON.
