    Hi everyone just picked up a mint completely std 1 owner w reg s4 advant with 140k fsh recent cambelt & health check done all good. My question is do you think the mileage is to high to remap as i dont want the turbo's or clutch to go or should i leave it as Audi intended.

    It's not a silver one by any chance...? The one that was just sold on eBay?

    If it is, it looked like a good motor and I was toying with the idea of trading my M3 for it!

    Good decision!

    Your best bets are either MRC or Viper tuning. These are the big boys on the 2.7T scene.

    K04 turbos (from RS4), intercoolers, exhaust, injectors and fuel pump. Some people have hit closer to 450bhp on the same spec as me, I went for a 'conservative' map (ie: I asked for low boost) from MRC.

    Quite a few guys going for big power in the S4 these days (700+bhp)!!!

    The stage 1 remaps in general are pretty subtle as far as the engine is concerned,

    a well written file will have smooth transitions in the torque limit maps and the boost limiters the same.

    the difference however in drive and delivery is well worth it.

    there are quite a few different files about these days, the good ones offer this smooth power. Some of the ones I have seen have big hits of power which make the car feel faster but infact are no where near as good. They also put strain on the mounts, turbos and general components. So choose wisely.

    Go for the remap like everyone is saying. Makes a massive difference. My clutch and turbo's touch wood are still ok.
