Don't bother. Not worth it for a K04. Just wait and buy the S4.

you wont get too much more out of a k04 than the pc-16 file. you are running the 310cc w/ an adjustable fpr set to 2.7bar correct???

also - do you have a FMIC? how about a hfc/test pipe? what exhaust mani? what exhaust are you running / how big?

i would address these issues before you try another tune.

with a test pipe, atp high flow exhaust mani, 2.5" exhaust, correct injectors/fpr, and an evoms FMIC i was able to squeeze a lot out of the k04 with my pc-16 file.

loved it

yeah looks like youve maxxed out the k04 pretty much now. its probably not worth it to try to go custom. the increase wont be significant enough to warrant it. and plus - you dont want a super aggressive k04 tune, they can bend rods because of the torque onset at low rpm's

i recommend just being satisfied you have a running car that is not terribly slow (you should be pretty close to 200whp, which is not bad for a dd) and save up for your s4!

with the money you have left over from not getting a new tune, maybe you could buy something for your a4 that can also be swapped over to your s4, like a set of wheels or tires or something?

LOL when I opened the thread I thought it was you at first and was wondering why the hell are you asking that.
