    Default Audi A4 B5 Platform

    Anyone know who drives a balck Audi A4?probably a 1.8T?? I think its lowered with stock rims....tinted windows....."TunerWorks" sticker on side window. I had a run with him couple days ago at a stop light.. we were dead even to abit over 100km/h until I was forced to get behind him cuz my lane was ending.




    just wondering if he got anything done under the hood..

    good run

    I have seen it too, Flix Lex 18's, Kamei grill. From the looks of the exhaust, it looks stock, but he may have a chip, but I doubt it if he was even with you. ( No offence, but chipped 1.8T's are fairly quick) It is a 1.8T for sure though.
    I'd like to know who he is, it would be good to get another modded Audi out to the meets

    Very quick. Or it might have been the six-cylinder -- not nearly as tuneable as the 1.8T.

    Nope, 1.8T, it didn't have the chrome around the windows.

    P.S A chipped 1.8T is about the same as the 2.8L V6 anyways...

    I beg to differ my friend. I have owned both a 12V VR6 and (currently) a 20V 1.8T. Big difference in power -- my chipped 1.8T destroys my old 12V VR6 in my 2002 Jetta. On my test drive to determine if I wanted the new 24V VR6 or the 20V 1.8T -- during my VR6 test drive tagged along with me in his 1.8T Jetta -- we were nose to nose -- and he wasn't chipped -- needless to say -- I chose the 1.8T.

    Any day, any time -- Race City Speedway -- let's have some fun.

    In a B5 A4? Not really... Chipped A4 1.8T's are slow unless you've boosting over 1bar. I've driven a 1-bar APR chipped '01 B5 A4 with an APR exhaust (silver with S4 body kit) and even that wasn't overly thrilling. The B5 just has too much weight to it; The B6 is even worse. Chipped VW Golf/Jetta 1.8Ts are a different story though.

    The 12V/24V VR6 is not the same engine as the Audi one. The early V6's were 12 V (untill 96 I believe) and then they switched to the 30V, which I have, stock 190.

    I would like to go to Race City with ya, however the weight difference between a Jetta, and an A4 (with Quattro) is quite significant. I have seen times between a chipped 1.8T, and a 2.8, and it really comes down to the driver. The Jetta however would be a different story. Once I get my Summers on, I am all up for it. That will probably be in a month, since I have to order everything still.


    To get the 1.8T VERY fast, you need the Stage 3 kit. The regularly run 13's if everyting is dialed in. The fastest A4 that I know of is actaully in Vancouver, and he runs a 12.49 I believe. The Quattro A4's are supposed to be able to handle more power than the Golfs and Jetta's due to Quattro, and the tranny.

    I think Little is the key word. The A4 isn't exactly a lightweight.......
