    Anyone have any experience with Racechip? Thinking about picking up one of their chips for the S5 SB. Don't have any experience with tuning and wanted some input. I'm open to any options as well, if there is something that is better currently out. Thanks!

    May I suggest Burger Motorsports JB4? I am currently running one in my B9 RS5 and bang/buck, one of, if not the best!

    Do you run it on yours 24/7? I want something I can use daily and not have to worry about it harming the car or anything of that sort. I also can't seem to find their product for Audis for some reason on their site. BTW your car is stunning...

    I do and thank you so much! The beauty of the JB4 is that it is a complete plug and play, piggy-back solution. It affords the ability for removal prior to any service at Audi if needed. Also, the JB4 allows for deleting of any codes through their app, to name just a few of its many advantages.

    You beat me to it!

    How much more power are you guys getting on average over stock? On the site it doesn't seem to give any specific numbers. Thank you all for the responses

    Hello. I can only speak for my own personal B9 RS5's results, but from our collaborative dyno testing with Burger Motorsports, we have gained 30AWHP and 36AWTQ at peak (highest baseline vs. highest JB4 HP/TQ comparison). However, based on the curve below, our midrange gained 50AWHP/70AWTQ. I should also note that this is with a completely stock B9 RS5 on 93 octane pump gas using the JB4's standard S4 MAPs. I am still working with Burger Motorsports, to develop a more aggressive B9 RS5-specific MAP. I just had a Roc-Euro Intake, and AWE Tuning Touring Edition Exhaust Suite installed. With an E85-mix, we predict much more significant gains.

    Lastly, you should check out their forum "JB4 for 2018+ B9 AUDI S4, S5, SQ5, RS4, RS5". This will give you a much more detailed perspective and discussion of the install, tuning and troubleshooting aspects of the JB4.
