    How much is too much?

    Hi all. Got my hands on my first A4 2 months ago; 1.8T Sport 190bhp (non-quattro [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] . Bought it 2nd hand, so had to compromise on that). Now I think it is a little under-powered, even though my previous car was an A2 1.6FSI SE *lol*

    Does anybody have any idea how much increase in power is possible, without causing the front tyres to always break traction? I saw the AMD-Technik UK website, which hinted at an increase of 20bhp & 40lb-ft with re-chipping. Is it worthwhile?

    Many thanks. Oh, yeah..great forum. Best I've ever visited.

    Oops. Just re-read the website. My post above should read "..increase of 40bhp & 40lb-ft..."
