Re: the tunability of the new 4.2l v8: I'd be shocked if chip+exhaust
brought more than +10hp. The days of cheap HP from N/A engines are over, I'm
afraid. Does anybody have any data on the tunability of the 4.2v8 in other
guises? (A8, S8, S6, etc.)?

Now, don't get me wrong, a 344hp V8 sounds like a blast, and definitely
brings back memories of some of my old big-block musclecars. I'm sure I'll
be seriously considering a B6S4Avant in a few years...

At first i also had a bit of scepticism about a NA S class car from audi.
I also had the same feeling when audi departed from their 5-cyl turbo

But the one thing that warms my hart is this:  after the tuners get ahold
of this car, we wont have anything to complain about.  A Chipped NA V8
344hp (stock) enginine sounds very apealing to msyelf.   Add exhaust, and
other goodies and im quite sure this car will pull close to 400hp.  Im
also sure there will be some kind of turbo/supercharger upgrade for the

Now that is something worth trading in my 2001.5 S4 in for!

I am very excited to see how the first production year of this car turns
out.    By 2005 model i will be out of my warranty, and looking to
possibly switch to this.  Lets all hope she does well!
