    That's some good stuff.

    You know what, let's move this to its own thread.

    Thanks Click here to enlarge I wish there were more informative videos like this floating around. I'm curious if this new hybrid is compatible with the previous 2.5Tfsi... A new TT-RS isn't in my budget, but the last gen is. I actually visited the dealer on Monday to see if an RS3 is something I'd be willing to trade the Macan in for, but its simply too small for day to day use for me. Hank/Iroz seems so knowledgeable and passionate about this stuff I nearly want to throw my money at him and start modding one of these.

    What about the Q3 RS if it comes over? Same powerplant.

    Still on the small side... I'd much rather have the Rs3 hatch if it were an option. If I'm going small I at least want it to be sporty.

    It's not unfortunately.

    An older 2.5 TFSI is a stout powerplant but you're going to want the fuel system on this one.

    Following up on my previous post, it looks like it is. Good info on hybrid option inside: http://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads...-8p-8v.354266/

    about 50whp more than the stock, does't worth to upgrade

    I'd be curious to see what the curve looks like before jumping to that conclusion. It does make a lot of sense to swap one on to the previous gen though as its probably worth closer to 150whp.
