10hp!!!! Maybe from an exhaust.  I have the IA Stage III+ (There is no I &
II anymore) with stock everything else. At Portland International Raceway
My almost 4,000# car was blowing away the stock neu-S4.  Stock 227hp + 10
hp = 237hp + added weight= still less than a stock neu-S4.  The "+" is the
3.0bar sensor allowing 24-26psi of boost, instead of just up to 24#.  Upon
installation of the "reprogrammed" chip, the torque was "insane."  When
the boost kicks in around 4,500rpm, "hold on!"  My friends riding with me
have gotten scared and asked what I did to the thing.  Why not ask the
tuners directly how they came up with the numbers?  What ever the true hp
is, the change is extremely noticeable.  You won't notice it if your
unwilling to let the tach go past 4,500rpm/shift.  I am happy with the hp
& I do about 4 track events per year.  My next upgrades are "brakes
(probably bira.org)" & maybe the "IA's versinon of the RS2 EM."

P.S.  I was present during the reprogramming & installation of the ecu.
Ned Ritchie (Intended Acceleration) is local & a very helpful,
informative, giving member of the NW Region Audi Quattro Club.  He showed
me the chips from Michel Mouton's Pike's Peak car.  He's also re-done a
lot of TAP & MTM ecu's & has their stuff on file.
