View Full Version : help! noob on modification on a4 ><''

03-07-2005, 11:37 PM
any pro here can give me some suggestion of mods.
i am a noob
my car is 01 a4 1.8t

hehehe through my 2 months part time jobs
i got 1.5k US^^
anyone has some suggestions on what i should mod first?

exhaust or Stealth FX Divertor/Blow-Off Valve?

i am planning to order
FX Divertor/Blow-Off Valve? 388 us
is that a good valve for 388?

what is a good exhaust system for my a4 too?

03-07-2005, 11:42 PM
Chipped yet? that is definately where to start. Don't bother w/ any BOVs, DVs are where it's at! There are several exhausts to choose from... If I had to do it again I probably would have skipped the chip and gone for a turbo upgrade, a k04 kit is about 1500

03-07-2005, 11:48 PM
Where are you from, the States or elsewhere? And welcome to the Fam. [cool]

03-07-2005, 11:48 PM
i have chipped yet?

looking for APR chip
which online store should i choose from?
and also .. there are different type right
i have read many fourm .. people said .. 1.0 1.1 or 1.2 whatever that is?
whats the different?
15-16 psi ? what is that?

around how much per chip? for US dollars?

03-07-2005, 11:51 PM
if i were u...just becuase i like looks more than performance. i would go...


then later on, grill, tint, body kit.


just what i would do..

but if you want to go performance, i would do chip first.

Id get a CHIP first. $500

THEN I'd get a DV and suspension. Don't get a bov, your paying for something you don't need and actaully could hurt performance. Get a Forge, Bailey, or Strat DV.

i would do a chip as well, btw is you car FWD or Quattro, if you have a FWD your cat-back exhaust options will be almost limited to only B&B triflo or custom piping....

03-08-2005, 11:01 AM
do suspension first always imo the a4 really does need it.

You are a total newbie. SInce u r in BC, there r many shops local that could help you out. I got some friends up there and there is a big audi screw there also. Also check the Canada forum

And yea, forget LLTEK and the BOV, it will save you and from being flamed

halloz ^^ all
i am located at Richmond BC canada ^^

btw for chip what kind of chip is ideal
i heard APR of sth
there are many kinds of APR right?
which one should i get it

and for DV . any good suggestions?

03-08-2005, 11:44 AM
If you have an 01 get the GIAC X-chip, APR has nothing on it. Then Baileys or Startmosphere DV and suspension.

03-08-2005, 11:50 AM
Suspension & Rims First....then Chip It.....or exhaust imo
No need for a DV just yet....

03-08-2005, 12:06 PM
GIAC, APR, Wett, AMS, Neuspeed...
DV = bailey, forge, Startmosphere ... run a search, many answers there.

I would do suspension 1st also

03-08-2005, 12:30 PM
Please don't tell me you're asian and under the age of 18.. coming from richmond :'(

For a local club, check http://www.vwdov.ca/

And suspension first.

03-08-2005, 02:39 PM
HAHAHAH not 18 under lols

btw any good suggestions and good price for online store?

for chips and suspension?

03-08-2005, 02:41 PM
thanks for all of ur infos

i am very very appreciated : )

03-08-2005, 02:44 PM
No, I'm from White Rock.

For local shops regarding tuning, it is fairly well known that the best chips are APR or GIAC. I personally recommend GIAC, and would suggest you talk to "Jarrod" at "Fusion Racing"... He's also known as "QuattroRocket" on the VWDoV.

They also have your suspension requirements, carrying KW Shock&Springs, and KW Coilovers.


They're also located in Richmond.

03-08-2005, 02:52 PM
ahhh i see i see thanks so much

do they carry the service of tunning?

they also sell them and tune for u right?

03-08-2005, 02:53 PM
If i had 1.5k when i start to mod i would have went right to the ko4.

03-08-2005, 03:46 PM
right to k04.

03-08-2005, 05:45 PM
k04 that would be nice . haha

but i am looking forward for a Giac chip i guess?

does anyone here has a good suggestion on where i should purchase it?

i meant for a good online store?

03-08-2005, 05:53 PM
don't waste your time go ko4

03-08-2005, 06:03 PM
If I was to do it over again, with a B5, I'd replace all of the hoses with Samco and go straight for a bigger turbo and better mani.

03-08-2005, 10:17 PM
just do it all in ONE SHOT:

-chip (GIAC or APR)


03-08-2005, 10:44 PM
Go local and do it @ Fusion Racing. Pls run a search or look around, you can find most of your answers.
