    • Dyno Spectrum DS1 Stage 1 E85 tuned C7 S6 4.0 TFSI V8 runs 11.3@120 1/4 mile on pump E85

      The Audi C7 S6 continues to show what a performance tuning value it is. This C7 S6 EA824 4.0 TFSI V8 is running the Dyno Spectrum DS1 Stage 1 pump E85 tune. That is it. No additional custom tuning or fueling upgrades here.


      The result? A very nice 11.3 @ 120.02 software only:


      Now, the car is not far off breaking into the 10's but it will likely take some fuel system upgrades to get there.

      It certainly will be interesting to see if a C7 S6 or S7 do break into the 10's on the factory turbochargers. The platform certainly is on the doorstep.

        Itís sooo annoying that Audi decided in some coke-induced haze of one of their idiotic bean counter meetings that for the C8 replacing the V8 with a generic 3l TDI engine is a good idea for the S6/7 (S standing for what then, sluggish? Snore inducing?). And then, ultimate insult, continuing to sell the S6/7 with a petrol engine in the US while flipping their fingers at the buyers on their own home turf. And that after Dieselgate...(double facepalm)

        Nothing to do with this thread, just ranting....

        It's a good rant and the topic may be worth an article.

        I test drove a '13 S6 last week and really loved the car. It's a great tuning value but also seemed like a great car for the money. Might have one of these with some RS7 hybrids showing up in my garage in the near future.

        Yuup, I need to find a neighbor willing to rent a garage space or the macan might be sleeping in the street soon.
