Oh man, I forget about this thread for months at a time.

So as Eric stated, the car is currently down. Not that I haven't been working on it and driving it on and off for the past year or so.

I've done a few things since the last update.
- Swapped to a tial .63 turbine housing. Spool has improved massively. Went from 25psi at 5100 to 25 at 3900rpms. I can tell there isn't as much up top, but the driving dynamics are so improved I could care less.

- Replaced the Bosch 044 with an AEM 320lph in the surge tank. Redid all the lines with OEM style pushloc fittings.

- Swapped out to ZZP LDK injectors from the LNF injectors.

- Ordered Eurodyne Meastro, have yet to flash ecu for reasons.

So injector one is overfueling and giving a decent amount of misfire codes, with enough fuel being sprayed to actually wash down the intake valves and going into the intake manifold. This is the whole reason I replaced the injectors in the first place, thinking I had a bad one. All the injector wiring appears to be solid, with no shorts in the system I can find. Continuity is good, and resistance is uniform across the board on injectors and harness. Brand new coilpacks and spark plugs also.

I did a compression check and found 110-120 psi across the board. Within wear limits, but lower than I expected given I re-ringed the engine at rebuild. I've ordered a leakdown tester and will find out more on that front hopefully soon.

So yeah, tons of fun /s. If I have more issues i'll probably sell the car or part it accordingly. I REALLY want a new A3.

I've had 3 different tunes on this ECU, so it's possible it's a injector driver (per erics help), but I'm not willing to go down that route till I've exhausted everything else.

Since he never updates this thread, turns out the issue was a faulty brand new spark plug causing misfires. New plug is in and no more misfires

Nope, plug wasnt firing causing and was allowing fuel to pool on it, making it look like an overfueling injector.
