    AWE-Tuning releases Stage II tune (by GIAC) and pulley upgrade package for the B8.5 Audi S4 with S-Tronic dual clutch

    Audi has been making things a little more difficult on those that want to tune changing the ECU for 2013 3.0 TFSI cars. Various tuners have been cracking the new code and AWE-Tuning is now able to offer their Stage II package for what is referred to as the B8.5 S4. This tune and pulley package is only available for the S-Tronic dual clutch transmission cars at the moment and they do have a 6-speed manual in testing for which the package should be released for shortly after.

    Gains are shown below but unfortunately AWE-Tuning just provides a crank graph. Come on AWE, really? We want our numbers at the wheels. Also, without all the peak figures listed on the graph it's somewhat difficult to see what each Stage makes over stock. The graph shows the difference (on 93 octane) between stock, Stage I, and Stage II with an exhaust, intake, downpipe, and GIAC tune. Stage II is stated to make an additional 31 horsepower and 42 pound-feet of torque at the crank over Stage I.

    Good results but please present them better next time so we can see the exact numbers at the wheels for ourselves without having to make an educated estimate. OBD-II flashing is on the way.

    It definitely makes power, no doubt about that. This motor really responds well to tunes.

    You can't compare the 335 to this. But both motors see large gains with tunes and GIAC does well.
