• 12 second Audi Q5 with just an ECU tune? Yep. APR tuned Q5 3.0 TFSI goes 12.8@105 in the 1/4 mile

      The Q5 facelift getting the 3.0 TFSI supercharged V6 motor definitely was going to improve the performance Q5 but wow! 12 seconds with just a tune? In a 4300 pound SUV? That is quite impressive. The stock car is detuned to 268 horsepower (Audi is able to adjust boost through the ECU so can they can give the 3.0 TFSI motor various states of tune depending on what vehicle it goes into) and runs the 1/4 mile in 14.2@95.8. That's just under a 1.5 second drop in elapsed time through the 1/4 mile tune only!

      And trap speed goes up by 10 miles per hour! 10 miles per of trap speed gained, APR tune only, in an SUV. Makes one wonder if they even need to bother with the SQ5 with its 354 horsepower as this ECU tune on the standard Q5 exceeds it making the regular 3.0 TFSI Q5 a bargain.

      This is only Stage I. Imagine the Q5 with a higher boost pulley and a Stage II tune. Low 12's close to 110? How about with an upgraded blower? Blowing away Cayenne Turbos and X5M's is likely the result. Very, very impressive and it likely is a whole lot of fun pulling up to a light and surprising an unsuspecting victim in this Q5.
