European Car: A4 Throttle Body Mod

The recent issue of European Car Magazine has an article about the
Shaumburg Throttle Body modification, K&N Panel Filter and suspension
upgrade for the A4. This is step 2 of their A4 project (does anyone know
what step 1 was?).The article describes in depth (with step by step photos)
how to perform the modifications. One interesting comment was the 0-60
times for the A4Q. It reads, 

"Using the G-Tech Performance computer, we timed the A4q's 0 to 60s and
averaged 7.35 sec before we installed the aformentioned components (TB and
K&N). After the relatively straightforward install procedure, our 0 to 60
average dropped to 7.15 sec; the modest increase in low-end response was
noticed by those who've spent considerable seat time in the A4q."

The original time of 7.35 sec before the mod seemed  a bit fast to me.
Maybe step one of the project was a chip or something....
