I didn't see a new member intro spot, so I put it here.

I just bought a 99 B5 A4 Avant 1.8T Quattro MT with the factory sport package. New to Audi, but I have owned 6 VWs, including a B5 Passat Variant (tippy, unfortunately).

Looking forward to learning a lot here. I am planning on chipping it (Revo, which I have for my 1.8T GTi) and doing performance (rather than lowering) suspension mods, but I want to drive it stock for a bit first.

I would go with UniTronics. I looked at the numbers when I tuned my 1.8t AWM and Uni was able to produce more HP/TQ for the boost levels so I wouldn't risk blowing out a turbo that had 143k miles on it or turning a rod into a horse shoe.

I love my Uni BT tune! I also liked APR just for the selective abilities from stock to diff. octanes

I didn't like APR just kuz i went from stock to stg2 and wanted to be able to buy my own hardware for stg3 and up instead of dropping 5k for their kit

Well, I've been very pleased with the Revo on the AWP motor, and I have a local dealer.

if ur going for just a chip not a bt upgrade go with a custom uni tune or giac pc-16 file...my old custom uni tune was 24psi.

but if u go bt then eurodyne is the way to go...launch control ftw
