Chip HP upgrades
According to Superchips (407-260-0838), they don't have anything for my Coupe
so I don't have details. Their ads in EC claim +22HP for "Audi 80/90 & v6",
195HP for 5000 Turbo, 265HP for Quattro Turbo & S-4, and +35HP for Audi V8.
Intended Acceleration (206-754-1411) has an ad that claims "add 60+ HP to your
5000/200 Quattro or Turbo." When I called them last year they didn't have
anything for my Coupe either, only turbo cars (has this changed)?
The other place I tried is TAP (Total Audi Performance), Tel 904-683-3000
Fax 904-683-2278. The spec sheet they sent me lists the following gains:
(use your own judgement on these, I'm merely quoting their factsheet)
Audi 100 2.8V6 & Quattro up to +22HP
Audi 90 2.8V6 & Quattro up to +22HP
Audi 80 10v & Quattro up to +16HP
Audi 200 Turbo & Quattro up to +65HP
Audi 20v Turbo & Quattro up to +80HP
Audi S-4 Turbo & Quattro up to +80HP
Audi 90 20v & Quattro up to +17HP
Audi 90 10v up to +16HP
Audi Coupe Turbo Quattro up to +65HP
Audi 5000 Turbo & Quattro up to +65HP
Audi Sport 2.3 20v up to +17HP
Audi 90 GT Coupe up to +17HP
Audi 80 1.8L up to +14HP
Audi 80 2.0L 16v up to +16HP
They also recommend adding a K+N air filter with the chip upgrade, good
for another +4 HP.
Anyone have any experience with these guys (or any chip upgrades)? I
presume these numbers are slightly exagerated and you might gain less,
but how much? What can *really* be expected from a chip upgrade?
