Re: European Car: A4 Throttle Body Mod
"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....
While 7.35 seconds does seem a bit fast, I've always been suspicious of
the tested 0-60s of high 8s to low 9s reported by the rags for my 95
90csq. Looking at the numbers from R/T, C/D - one gets the impression
that the Audis are barely faster than minivans. But I always get in
front of Acuras and BMWs when launching at 3500 rpm+.
Being due for a 60k service soon, I am very interested in the throttle
body/KN filter modification using Schaumberg's kit. Anybody's
experience with Schaumberg and/or its kit would be much appreciated as
well as references to some capable pro mechanics in the greater NYC
