yeh, i was told to use shell v power as you will get the most power out of it then, red ones are faster than black ones
OK I've obviously missed something in this thread. <blush>
Perhaps it's just I'm not getting the terminology. If it's got a bigger turbo then I don't get how it's Stage 1 as that would imply to me simply a remap.
So one of the perks of this limited run car is that it comes with a de-tuned correctly mounted Audi S3 engine?
Hmmm. As far as I'm aware "All" 211ps B8 2.0TFSIs run the same turbo. Even the dynamics.
So there are two people on the forum, both with Dynamiks, both been remaped.
Is there an easy way for them to go out, pop the bonnet and solve the mystery of which turbo is fitted?
If you have a look at Revo Facebook page on the link below they explain why the big power gain. Read through the threads and you can see people asking similar questions to here and they answer them. I hope this helps.

Mentions nothing about a K04 turbo AT ALL
I read that linked page and I'm no more clear? If the Dynamik has the K04 then why was it launced with the same figures and the difference not a listed and proclaimed selling point?
I also read a post saying the remapped 2.0T is faster than a 4.2 V8 powered S5?!?!?! I'm simply not getting this.
the 2.0 b8 is the same engine as the tts and and the s3 but tuned down abit, the b8 2.0t has a big turbo so it can stand the powers of what the s3 and the tts is curenntly running at, also it has a big intercooler which is better for remapping a the vvl engine (variable valve lift) is also highly responsive to tuning it has to be because the 2.0t b8 is the same engine as the s3 and tts and they are tuned higher so they must make the engine components bigger to stand the power so it will not get ruined, they are not just going to put in a different turbo to a s3 and tts they will all be the same
The engine in the A4 is NOT the same as the S3 and TTS. And believe me the Turbos ARE different.
My mishtake.As for the S5 comment, it actually says V8 S4, of which I have one. And, there probably wouldn't be much in it as the S4 only has 30 or so more horses, with permanent 4wd and a heavier lump, compared to the oodles of boost from the 2.0T, it wouldn't surprise me if the 2.0T felt quicker in the real world anyway.
Exactly what I've been trying to establish in this thread. If it's a diferent turbo then maybe. A remap on it's own then I don't see it.Yep. For most A4 2.0T that may well be completely accurate. Do you know for sure the dynamic doesn't have a k04 or similar bigger turbo though? You can get k04 conversions for mk5 golf 2.0T's too, yet some of them come with k04's already
