    I want more power

    Ok I've had my A4 for about 6 months now, and the time has come to start planning more power.

    Its a BFB engined quattro (163).

    What do I need to make a reliable 250bhp?

    Taking it the engine is a 1.8T?

    In that case; Front mount intercooler, K03s / K04-001 turbo, downpipe & full exhaust, remap.

    Yes its a 1.8t.
    Thats why its all new to me. But I think because its a quattro, its not as easy as just bolting on a k04 and away you go. Not 100% on this though.

    I'm not interested in just mapping it. 250bhp is what I want, and I have no interest in doing it in dribs and drabs. Been there, done that and its pointless paying for bits twice.

    I had a 1.8t to tune (it was an S3 so quite a different engine, but same principle). Had so much grief I wasted a lot of money on it and it was off the road for most of the time I had it, gave up in the end and just bought an S4.

    Fast modified turbo cars are a bit more fun than big engined ones, however the price you pay is they are a lot more maintenance and a lot less reliable.

    I don't want to buy an s4 though. Or run one, or maintain one. If I did, that's what I would have bought. I'm well aware of living with a modified car.

    Interesting post,

    Im normally found on the s3 forums and have do hybrid turbos for s3's and TTs i have my own range of hybrids.

    I bought a BFB a4 1.8t avant about 3 months ago with the purpose of building a hybrid turbo for the a4 longitudinal engine. I've been in discussion with a few members on here to figure the feasibility of such a turbo as there isn't really A high performance Turbo for the A4 with a "stock " fitment.

    With all this in mind I have a finished version of the hybrid made up and hopefully in the near future will be fitting it. Its based on the k04 turbine from the s3/TT and the 2280 compressor wheel . This combo is capable on paper for 300 bhp but think its going to be limited by the restrictive turbine housing. To assist this a tubular exhaust manifold will be fitted, Fmic and 3" tip/maf and downpipe and decat. There is a future plan to aim to fit one of the k04 hybrids to the a4 which could yield 320+ bhp but this is a distant project.

    With any luck I plan on starting the build in the next month or so and potentially could offer a full package but will certainly list all items used and map for the BFB as most of the parts bar the turbo are off the shelf items.


    But back to your post, 250bhp from the BFB with out a turbo upgrade isn't going to happen, the available hybrids on the market will see you get 260bhp going BT route will see you as much as you want and can afford otherwise your just looking at a remap, Fmic exhaust and 230bhp is really your max from the BFB as is.
