everytime i rip on my car and get it up to 130 the boost drops from 20+ to about 15 and the car feels like its hitting a brick wall and almost stops accelerating. My car has the atp gtrs kit on it with mika software any ideas for problems

Why would you drive so fast. If you have a active governor, leave it in place.

I've heard about some Stage 3 cars having a governor at Around 110 or something.

I dunno, I'd say call ATP and see if there is a speed governor.

because he wants to and thats why he is making his car faster. Why make your car faster if your not going to go faster? As long as you do it when nobody else is around its your own choice to do what you want

guess i'll have to call atp or something, i've just never felt anything like it because when i just had the giac chip in it i did 140 and it felt different than this doing 130, the only thing i could thing of was that there was a governer

fueling problem. Your fuel pump probably can't keep up

That is just stupid. First off a chipped K03 can hit 145 mph, upgrading the turbo just allows you to get up to a speed quicker. It isn't going to make the car any faster since the A4 is limited to a top speed because of gearing and a rev limiter.

I'm guessing it's the software....I think the fuel pump would be a more gradual feeling...not so abrupt.

I'm running the APR stage III kit on my car and I'm WELL over that #...

But I still want more. Guess it's time to pony up for the + [drive]

Maybe you are maxing out your MAF? [confused]

More power or more top speed?

That wouldn't be a problem with the ndbw since people have been doing that since the BT's have been out. The ndbw maf only has a max 186g/s reading with the OEM scale, once it hits that the ecu just uses the fuel map.

i dont think its the fuel pump unless 400lph isnt enough to keep up.

yeah that isn't going to be a problem with the power your making. Sounds like your hitting a rev limiter or fuel cut. I guess some logs of the injector pulse would let you know, might also want to log the 02 sensor reading when this happens. ECU could be dumping fuel causing the car to run really rich which would cause a big drop in power.

if you want a higher top speed your going to have to swap out your tranny and then depending on what you go with you can go as afst as you want, sorta, on a track that is

That was the same thing I started to post but wasn't sure if he was talking about HP or MPH.

there was another member that posted up about this when the elims first came out

so to clear this all up for you guys

MIKA TUNING HAS A GOVERNOR AT 130MPH!

you dont remember the guy bitching about hitting fuel cut at 130mph in turn 1 at the track and almost dying?

Yes with the dbw cars only. If you have mika and are ndbw then your SOL.


I think Mat from Induktion Motorsports had this problem on his A4, I remember him telling me he hated the fact that he could not go over 130mph.

mika does not remove the top speed governer. you must use lemmiwink to advance it 128kph which is roughly and extra 80 mph making your new governor limited to 210mph, not that your car wil ever reach a speed even close to that, its nice to know

yes, but like said before, he is not dbw therefor lemmiwinks will not work for him
