Recall 26G4 is an ECU upgrade for 3.0TDI's. According to the A5 owners club site it is related to a cooling mod but also provides slightly more more power and slightly improved economy. It does however come with a big but.... A number of A4 3.0 TDI owners report this update deletes any third part mapping updates and locks down the ECU so they can be applied / re-applied.

Ah thanks SS.


I've not felt the need to remap this engine, so I shan't be worried about that. It's got plenty of power imho......but a little more is always helpfull
