AUDI RS3 HYBRID TURBO TIME

The Audi RS3 has been at the forefront of the hot hatch arms race ever since the original made its grand entrance in 2011. The second generation stuck to the same mechanical template of the muscular turbocharged five-cylinder engine up front, sending its power to all four wheels.

The stunning Audi RS3 not only looks the part but it also pulls 367bhp in standard form. And for most people this would be more than enough power in the 4wd car. But as we find with most of our customers more power is always needed 😉

Slowly parts where bought and changed on the car. Induction kit, secondary decat pipes, decat pipes and front mount intercooler where fitted and the car was mapped to suit along the way.

The Audi RS3 ran a 11.92 at 113mph down at Ultimate Street Car in 2017.

So where do you go next after you have modified the car like above?

Hybrid turbo! 😆

A second turbo was sent over to our “Turbo Guru” for hybridizing. With a bigger, modified compressor wheel fitted and the rest of the internals upgraded it was time to fit the hybrid turbo.

Original ‘V’ Hybrid

With the hybrid turbo fitted, the Audi RS3 had the Haldex 4wd system disabled and the car was strapped down to the rolling road.

The Mapping Process Began…

As we had put a lot of time and development into the Audi RS3 over the last couple of years. Mapping it to suit the next modification and working closely with the “Turbo Guru” and the owner we knew what we needed to get out of the car.

Our aim was to create a remap to suit the car that will not only deliver the power like it would out of the factory but be reliable in its delivery.

Here is what the beast of a car made on the rolling road…

So ADE Tuning increased the power and performance of this stunning Audi RS3.
