consider my A4 with my set up? I had the car dynoed at CPT (http://gocpt.com/) and the car did 167 whp. See sig for my set up.

All comments are much appreciated.

I'm pretty sure you could call it stage 3 since you have upgraded the turbo, but since it may be considered an oem turbo, it could be something different.

Stage 2+ since your running one of the more aggressive K04 files. Stage 3 would be a BT setup.


238chp, pretty good #.

I'd either go Stg 3, or a DIY GTRS/28RS setup.

I'm suprised you only made 167whp on a K04, especially with a GIAC file. I thought those were normal numbers for the stock turbo, tuned + exhaust.

LOL, I think you missed my post. That 167whp is on a Dynodynamic dyno which is 30% driveline loss. This is why I said "nice 238chp". [>_<]

Did CPT do your work or did you just dyno it there? I was REALLY turned off when I went in looking to give them some business and was told " We don't like the 1.8t, no potential for real power". Aside from ignorant comments like that, it was a really nice shop. Many b5 S4's on lifts. Lake is REAL shitty by them too, I felt sorry for my suspension.

Nice numbers.

something that i can't quite understand, you have K04, giac file, FMIC, and you only pulled 167, i just had my car on the Dyno the other week, and i put down 165 whp and 208 torque and on another run 163whp and 213 torque, and my only mods are FMIC, and revo stage one file.

its 204whp on non-dynodynamic dyno aka 22% drivetrain loss

Not all dyno's are equal, each type will give different readings because they are of a different design. So just because his car put down 167 and you put 165 doesn't mean you make the same chp.

stage 3 is reserved for the really "big" turbos

They did some work on my car before and very happy. I took my car in for proper tuning so that is why I had the dyno numbers and yeah Lake is such a bitch! I drove with my hazzard on until I got to 294 [:D]

My other question is why I only boost 17 psi and holding on 12 psi based on the dyno when awe-tuning said it should be boosting up to 21 psi holding 19 psi? Any suggestions?

I've only seen 21 psi spikes with the PC16 in 85+ degree temps. I had to use a manual controller to raise the peak to 22 psi consistently. Even then, by 6k RPM, it has tapered off to 11-12 psi.
