Well my friend just picked up a used S4 with 110k miles on it. We did a quarter mile race today, were both tip, i have APR SI and he is stock, but he has double the miles on his car with stock parts. Well anyways he had a better launch for about a second then I took him by like 2 car lengths and beat him by about 4.

It may not be a big feat, but it makes me happy [:p]

I bet if he upgraded his DVs he would spend a bunch of money, but it shouldn't make it any faster. Unless they are blown/ not holding boost...

there had to be something wrong with it, 4 cars is little too much

Thats the point, even a chipped A4 shouldnt be faster than a stock S4. Something is not right and DV's are a very usual culprit.

yea i told him not to get one with that many miles on it. Im sure if he got new DVs and turbos it would be running great again.

Not necessarily new turbos... he probably has like 10 boost leaks though.

Better hope you're friend doesn't go out and get himself a Stage 3 kit...

A stock s4 will rape a chipped ko3 car, it will take most ko4 A4s.

yea your friend should definatly look for a boost leak or 10, casue a s4 with 200k on it should still beat your chipped a4

The only 2.7TT I've ridden in was a buddy's A6. It's APR chipped but sure as hell doesn't feel like 390lb/ft of torque!!! Aren't the K03s on that motor notorious for going out?

congrats on your win.

you would know if a turbo was going out. it sounds like either a dentist drill from hell or an industrial vaccuum cleaner. the car would also run like poo.

i've spent the last couple years bouncing back and forth between an S4 and a K04 A4 and there is no contest. even on the stock setting the S4 is ahead. on a chipped setting the torque difference is just humiliating. now with RSK04s the S4 just walks away like my A4 threw down an anchor. it could start in second and still whup the A4.

have him roll along in second, coast down to 2500 rpm, and then floor it. if you can keep your head off the headrest then it isn't making full power.

did this guy say something on another post or something... why all the dickhead remarks. You guys act like an A4 beating an S4 hurt your feelings.

i think it rocks that he beat that car. every body is just letting him know that the S4 has issues.

if i beat a Z06 in a miata i would be pretty damn happy but i would still know that something ain't right in Z-land. the S4 is a torque monster. it pulls hard from 2200-7000 rpm and will smoke an A4. that's just how it is.
