Remaps are not about whether or not a mobile hairdryer can beat you off the line, it's the OP asking a question about getting an S6 remapped. Plenty of people do it on their cars and they have nowhere near the BHP of an S6. Could be that he just wants a bigger car than the A4 and Tesla don't make estates and have a nice sounding V8 sound track.
OP check out the websites like REVO or ABT they are all clamming around the 100 BHP increase.
However I would have the turbo oil feeds inspected first and either the filters cleaned or replaced as they are know to block.
B5NUT, of course you're right.
But that power increase has to signify and achieve something - like a 0-60 or 0-100 time or a 40-100 mph time. Or being able to beat something off the line.
That 550 (or even 802) BHP has to translate into something the re-mapper wants.
I am simply asking what the remapper wants to achieve.
I will absolutely accept that an owner wants a remap to make the car "his" - different from all the other black S6s with tinted windows - without ever using the extra power more than a few times.
When I hear a Merc C63S bi-turbo owner accelerate to 50 mph in a residential area in order to hear the sound of his engine and to let everyone else know that HE is nearby, I can only bring myself to utter an expletive. Fortunately Audi S6 drivers don't do that sort of thing.
My S4 is fully loaded, I never use the lane assist, blind spot assist and rarely use the adaptive cruise control so I’m not too fussed about those.The 10 speaker system was the factory default for the A/S6 models (excluding the black edition where Bose was standard) The B&O system on the A6 is a different beast to the B&O offered on the A4, it was a £6300 option on the A6 models and due to that price there are very few A6 C7 cars with the B&O option. Bose was a good upgrade on the C7 and was a £1000 option. Have to say I would be looking for an S6 with a minimum options including tech pack & Bose. The tech pack advanced would be even better as that included radar guided cruse and a few other nice options.
Loving the car so far, much smoother than my S4. the stereo is actually sounds decent for a standard system. I think I’ll add a sub upgrade at some point.
Decided I’m going to buy a DS1 and srm intakes at the earliest opportunity.
Wish I hadn't read this thread. I would give my left arm for an S6, need a V8 before we all end up with washing machine engined cars.
Give me a couple more years.
Did you tackle the oil screen issue as part of the upgrade?I’ll also add that the stock ones looked pristine at 52k miles
Upgraded to the latest oil screen revision. Flashed stage 3 straight away. Virtual dyno puts me around 530 bhp at the wheels so somewhere around 650bhpDid you tackle the oil screen issue as part of the upgrade?
The Chinese eBay turbos are almost too cheap! I figured the inclusion of the TT performance graphs was irrelevant lol.
Any noticeable difference in improvement? I thought you had to go Stage 3 software, as well as additional cooling mods?
So, the turbos are back on eBay and I’m considering dropping some cash on them (PM me if you “made an offer” that was accepted )Cooling is recommended but not essentially. It’s running great with no KR but I’ll probably run wmi at some point and turn it up another notch
No issues to report so far.So, the turbos are back on eBay and I’m considering dropping some cash on them (PM me if you “made an offer” that was accepted )
You’ve been running them about a month now, any issues?
