    Just think of the driveability once its been remapped. Have done 2 of the 4.2 V8 TDI's and they are scary fast after theyve been tweaked.

    The power increase you have to drive to believe especially in sports mode. My customers loved the driveability after the remap and went home with a smile on their faces. Give me a ring when your up.

    Is the ecu locked in, As other newer Audi,s have had a cradle type metal strap over them what needed grinding / cutting off.

    use something like photobucket.com to host the pictures and just link them on here, use the Insert image button on the toolbar (3rd from the end)

    You took your s4 past 155 Mph ? I did... Fast is relative, a 400 Bhp imprezza feels fast, a 600 Bhp gtr is plain silly... I still have full command of my left leg, when i will not be able to press a clutch pedal and use a piss bag then i might consider an auto gearbox... till then i stick to what i know !
    PS: make sure your additional/extended warranty covers the gearbox when it fails...read the small print !

    not that it matters but yes i had the s4 past 155 and on a track on numerous occasions
    nothing is as relative as side by side from a standing start
    a8 on one side s4 on the other both went down the road quickly
    relative didnt change the outcome the a8 was faster plain and simple (not as good in the corners though)
    no warranty on my car mate ...quite capable of fixing it myself gearbox aint the problem its the wanky s4 electronic diff thats trouble
    hope the left leg holds out while your changing the clutch ;)

    Just pray you didn't jinx your gearbox ! Whilst the a4 is a tecchy masterpiece is residual costs and running/repair bills that puts me off ! If you thought the s4 was hard to fix then the s4 is no different just multiplied by 2 ! Peace...

    Backboxes fitted by STG Performance Wakefield , Dont know the make, but they sound and look better than standard, My cars remapped and limiter removed , so it does go well too.
