Not looking for something exact, but I am new to the B5 A4 platform and I thought the upgrades I have made to the car would make it a little more powerful. Maybe my butt dyno is off from other cars I drive or maybe my expectations were unrealistic.

The car is:
1999 B5 A4 Quattro with AWE PC16 kit (with K04, injectors, FPR, plugs, GIAC), upgraded manifold, front mounted intercooler, 3" highflow exhaust, intake

There also seems to be a little stutter when I roll on the throttle in high load situations. The car is really well balanced and handles great, but I thought it would be a little quicker with all those upgrades. In a complete rough order of magnitude, what kind of numbers would you expect that setup to put down?

Thanks

Have your fuel pressure checked (fuel pressure gauge read while under load) or AFR checked (dyno)
You might be going a little lean there.
