Tony you can get a 20 - 30 bhp with a superchip and an induction kit. It should only cost a few hundred quid.

Marius, You cant increase the compression but you can still do a lot to the car. Airfilter, Cams, Computer, Exhaust a simple rechip will release a lot more power but if you redline a big engine often it will break the Turbos are much stronger when it comes to high revs so just play around with the low down torque.

I have just bought a 53-Reg Audi A4 1.8T (190PS) and would like to get a 20-30 BHP increase in power. What is the best way to go about this and the types of prices involved?

Thanks in advance

Hey!! I have a Audi 100 2.3i. How can i increase the performance of my engine?? I've been told that the compression is so high, that there is nothing more to do with the engine..... Is that so?? M.

Hi Frank - I would go for the A6 4.2 because the power delivery is consistant from low down and the heavier engine provides better traction in the SNOW. The Turbo is fun though and you notice it kicking in at about 2000 revs so if your a boy racer go for the turbo but the mature answer is go for the refinement of the 4.2 and enjoy a very wide power band and low grubly exhaust note. (You also need to think of fuel economy - I have no stats to go on for a chipped example.)

Hi Guys,

Am in the market for a new car Audi A6 and I'm am looking for top performance and driveability. I am quite keen on enhancing the performance with a chip upgrade too. The car should be automatic.

MY question is, In your opinion should I go for the A6 2.7T or the A6 4.2 I have noticed that both have roughly the same max torque figure after upgrading

Put your Audi specific questions in here - start a new topic for your model unless your model already has a topic.

Have an Audi Coupe 2.0E, it's only the 8 valve
version and she's pretty dull on performance.
Any suggestions on adding more b.h.p. without
too much expense. Thanks, Mark.

HI Mark Dude - welcome to the Audi Forum - I'd go for an air filter and exhaust if I was you. Make sure you get the engine decoked though - theres a power boost spray that is pretty good nowdays.

Hi,I have a new A4 1.8T Quattro (190 PS) which I'd love to get more power from. Have looked at the REVO chip upgrade which looks great. Any suggestions for other upgrades and particular brands to look for would be greatly appreciated.

Please feel free to mail any info regarding A4 tuning and styling to me at

Many Thanks
