What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

Nope. £1500 all in. I was pretty pleased with that!

Struggling to find someone who wants to tackle remapping it at the moment :flushed:
Good to know mate and really? Why, i know rtech do it and mrc also a guy near me called performance remap ive seen a few of his graphs of ko4’s and there really good almost on par with rtech so might be worth a call if theres close enough?

Many can't do quattro's only 2wd variants.

As Rob said it’s hard to find someone who will do a Quattro.

Maybe I should rephrase my sentence. I’m struggling to find someone local to remap it. Trying to stick to the rules and not travel too far during the pandemic.

Called Retro Resus in Bridgewater yesterday. They said TFSI engines can be a pain to remap but they said they may be able to help. I’ve sent over the spec of my car, we’ll see what they can do.

Thats a shame, depends where you live then I guess as there's a quite a few local to me where abouts are you?, never heard anyone struggling to map tfsi engines before though seems strange especially when its ecu related not engine specific, id be wary using them last thing you want is for them to bang a load of timing on and blow that fancy turbo up.

I’m in Bristol mate.

Tried Interpro, they won’t touch VAG cars.

Badger5 prefer the 1.8T engine, not so keen once they found out it’s a Quattro TFSI.

Tried Avon Tuning, they won’t touch it.

Retro Resus use APR or Eco Tune for their maps. We’ll see if they get back to me.

Might try TSR in Bridgewater. They use Revo and have a 4WD dyno

Only down the M5 from me then is it not worth a motorway trip down to performance remap? Arc tuning in Gloucester also have a 4wd dyno but they use Celtic tuning they ring celtic with what car it is and mods and they send Arc a map to upload so its a glorified genetic map tbh, dont get to hung up on needing rollers though V-Hub in Tewkesbury use Revo but there's isn't a generic map like most Revo they dont have rollers they do every live with on the road tuning so that might be the best bet if your struggling?

Booked in with TSR Performance in Bridgewater on 1st March.

They’ve got a 4WD dyno and use Revo as a baseline map then tweak it to suit your hardware. Said they’ll need the car for 2-3 days. Hopefully I’ve put together a decent set up and can reach 350hp.

Im not concerned with peak numbers though. More interested in the area under the torque curve on the dyno print out :icon thumright:

It only stops when you part company with it Dan, I keep thinking to myself its a bottomless pit but I love the old bus so I just keep on doing what must be done.:icon thumright:

That’s very true mate. I’ll be keeping my A4 until it rusts away!

I’m gonna buy a b8 s4 with the 3.0 v6 supercharged engine in 4-5 years time. When I do I’m gonna strip the b7 out and use it as a track car :racer:

I’ve got a turbo jacket lying around somewhere. Not sure whether to put it on the k04?

I figure as long as I let the turbo cool down properly after driving it shouldn’t have any adverse affects?

Anyone fitted an uprated oil cooler to there tfsi?

@WOMBLERULZ - I bought it from the classifieds on here. The guy imported it from the US at a significant cost (these clutch kits are $1600).

It was brand new, never fitted and I have to say I’m really pleased with it. The pedal is a bit stiffer but you get used to it straight away.

If you google Southbend Stage 3 Daily there’s loads of info on em

Sounds like an awesome set up for some good torque figures, that's what i like about these engines stock there pretty standard issue and dull tbf but a few of the right mods and these engines are torque junkies i been in a stage 2 mk5 golf gti ed30 (should be similar power to yours once mapped) and its a monster surprising how well they put the power down has to be something a bit special to keep up with a well set up ko4 so im chuffed for you.

So we all guessing dyno figures then or? lol

I'm sensing a restart of a project now.:whistle2:, now where is that wallet.
Take it with a pinch of salt Rob but i think the tte420 or 480 for that matter isn't worth the money over a ko4 set up, forging the engine the price of the turbo alone, then clutch kits ect and everything else on top i cant imagine your get any change at all from 10k go for the ko4, me personally i think its the best bang for your buck on the tfsi engines and it may let you sleep easier at night with a build not even half the price lol

Rob - I agree with Ricky, I think the CTS K04 is the way to go. Plug and play and you don’t have to worry about scaling up your MAF, boost pipes, throttle body etc to get decent power.

Not having to relocate the dv is a bonus too.

@Ricky Burrows - I’m gonna say 350hp with 340-350ftlb

My mates got a stage 2+ S3 that’s 370hp and that feels quick. If mine feels anywhere near that I’d be happy, obviously the S3 is a lot smaller and lighter but still...
Yeah 350 & 350 is a good shout, as its APR they always seem to be on lower end on peak hp so ill say 335hp but 370 ft lbs. :icon thumright:

Mega!

It takes a while to get visually used to your own car again once you've changed them, but will never go back to halogens once you've made the leap. Congrats!

How did you find the install with the Kufatec, wee buns isn't it?
 

Alex Holmes

Registered User
Im very happy with them and the new lenses make them look brand new a highly recommended job for either xenon or halogen headlights. Also looking forward to testing the osram CBB bulbs in the dark too.

The kufatec look was just right for the job as usual

Got the xenons fitted this morning, a nice refresh to the front end View attachment 215390
Coming along nicely now Alex, I do miss the xenons not necessarily the look but more the cool bulb lighting up when you turn them on lol I had them standard on the Accord type R and the E class but my biggest put off on the B7 is the price there a bit pricey personally but main issue is the worry of an MOT tester failing it because of no washer jets, you doing the full bumper conversion ect as well or you winging it?

Have you seen the retro fit lab conversions? Quite a bit cheaper than second hand xenon's in poor condition

Cheers Ricky. Well i got these for around £280ish which i don't was too bad considering a lot sell for around £500! I suppose its just case of keepimg an eye out for good deals.

At the moment im not rushing into fitting the self level and headlight washers, although i think i will in time, more so to satisfy my ocd. Also with regards to the MOT, find yourself a good tester.......lol

Yeah that's a bargain where you finding all these and the 18z you said were cheap you must be taking all the cheapys lol, I had a look out after the car got hit I couldn't find a set of xenon's for less than £4-500, yeah your right is one of those wait till a bargain turns up kind of thing I guess, as for mot testers i seem to fall out with every mechanic so that's a task in itself lol

I don't think so, tbh they haven't really interested me tbf so I haven't really looked into it, I had a look out for some xenons when I had the "accident" but i couldn't find a set for less than 4-500 so I quickly gave up as I didn't want them that bad lol I'm happy with mine at the minute I refurbed them and put my own touch on them so there do me for now :) more interested in power side of things now so everything else will have to be added to the never ending shopping list...
