    i have an a4 1.8t saloon but want 2 get the estate, i know the tqs would be the best to buy but there a bit out my price range for a low-ish malliage, so looks like i'll have to go for the 1.8t, the car i have at the min has been chipped and i did want to put a bigger turbo on it but was told i cant on my engine(AEB) or get it tuned so just wanted to know which yr/engine code would be best to look for, cheers for any help

    are the engines on the tqs b5's all the same, im more intreasted in the b5 cause they have more power as standard than the b6, what tuning can i do to tqs, can i put a bigger turbo on without having it tuned

    the turbo on the TQS is exactly the same as the turbo on the 150hp versions, its just "remapped" from the factory.

    You could fit a larger turbo, but you wouldnt get anymore power unless you had the car tuned to suit the new larger turbo. The ECU needs to be programmed to match what the engine/turbo is doing, or you'll blow it up.

    Personally i would hold out for a TQS, i did and when i got it i had the biggest grin ever on my face ! Lol

    Going from a 97' 1.8 B5 to the TQS was just a whole new driving experience only being young and my third car id owned the quattro just painted a whole new picture on driving itself !!

    TQS ECU's are a later type which are easier to tune. You'll still need to find someone with the right know how to tune it though.

    R-Tech in Hinkley are probably pretty close to you and know what they're doing.

    Nope. pretty much what you've done is all you can do.
    I think they are sent a email informing them their box is full and people are trying to PM them.

    I'd go for a TDI.
    MPH is so 00s, its all about MPGs now. :ninja:

    Scott it is all about mpg in this day and age but who cares when your in a turbocharged petrol engine on some nice twisty country roads giving it some welly rather than driving slow and constantly checking your DIS out, no offence i just hate diesels more than marmite and would never own one in my life even if it was given to me you just cant beat a petrol.

    Yes but when it comes to doing turbo's on a S4 it puts a very frustrating face on the person replacing them lol and you could easily get a 1.8T to give you the same smile a S4 would give you with a few mods and nice GT28 blower :p
