Funny you should mention the clutch slipping.
I made similar improvements on my 2000 S4 (APR chip and Stratmosphere
Diverters) and my clutch started slipping under power. My car has 50,000
miles on it and I'm pretty easy on the clutch, so I couldn't believe that I
didn't get more miles out of it.
When we pulled the old clutch, my suspicion was confirmed. It still had
lots of life left in it, it just could not keep a grip with the new chip and
I replaced the stock clutch with an RS4 clutch and it's beautiful.
So now that I have the RS4 clutch, it would be a shame to waste all that
Any recommendations on dual exhaust systems??? K04's????
