    Looking for people with dual pulley Q5/SQ5s

    Hey guys, I recently sold my 2011 B8 S4 and am contemplating selling my Scuba Blue black optics 2014 Q5 TDI and going to a Q5 or SQ5 3.0t for best of both worlds. Just wondering how they hold up when heavily modded because I would like to do everything I did to my S4 (mods in sig). Thanks for any input.

    Im currently running an EPL DP setup on my 2016 SQ5, 3.18 PR and AMS heat-exchanger. I dont have any problems at all. Im currently messing around with my coolant concentration to lower my IAT a bit though.

    Good to hear, did you have to do a separate tune for the trans or does it keep up ok?

    EPL doesnt offer a tune for the SQ5 trans. So far its holding up just fine. Im at around 45k miles.

    If you get a benign, then you'll have to wait for things to be developed for the turbo engine.
    If you get the B8.5, ('14-'17), you can do all the same mods you did to your S4. However, there is no TCU tune for the TipTronics.
    I'm APR Stage 2(.1) DP with CPS, 034 intake hose, and AWE NRDP. I just passed 55K and there haven't been any issues except for the coolant leaks and that pesky oil-level/hood-latch sensor issue. Neither of which have any relation to my mods.

    Been running an EPL DP set up with the APR CPS for a few thousand miles (currently at 55k) and everything has been solid thus far. These cars could benefit *GREATLY* from a TCU tune, that's my only complaint other than the fact I'm stuck with 91 octane and no E85 stations in my area of NorCal.

    What was the source of your coolant leak? Water pump?

    Yes, and the crossover pipe too.

    I just got my stage 1 EPL tune; I do have the supercharger pulley (CTS) and fluidampr 187 just waiting to be installed.

    I love my EPL Stage 1 so much better than chipwerke and the best is my fuel mileage is awesome cruising highway !

    On Thursday I am getting Cats gutted and supercharger ported by Matty (known in the S4 world for running 10s in his S4)
    Hes local to me so works perfectly ! Also going to install my supercharger pulley. Already bought the stage 2 upgrade from EPL so all I got to do is flash my car when I pick it up. Thank god for flashing cables !
