    • Audi S8 already in the 10's tune only - 1/4 mile comparison video between stock, APR Stage I 93 octane tune, and APR 100 octane race gas tune

      Wow. Quite simply, wow. The 4.0 TFSI is a potent motor as we have all seen. Audi uses this motor in a variety of levels of tune from the standard S6, to RS6, to S8. In the S8 the motor features larger turbos that can produce a bit more power than in the S6 as these 1/4 mile results from APR show. The car is no slouch in stock form capable of 11's in the 1/4 mile at 116 miles per hour despite its fairly hefty curb weight of 4620 pounds.


      What happens to the 1/4 mile time once tuned? Well an APR tune on 93 octane improves the numbers to 11.17@123.01. That would be low 11's in a luxury sedan with just a tune. What happens on 100 octane race gas with a race tune? 10.93@126.31.

      You could pull up next a Porsche 911, C7 Corvette, BMW M5, etc., and have three of your friends help you wave goodbye. If APR upgrades the turbos on this car the sky is the limit.

      Incredible results, congratulations to APR who is doing great things with the 4.0 TFSI platform.

        That's freaking bad.. It would be so easy too. Other than a blower really you just have to upgrade that horrible Jag air suspension with some coilovers. Then you'd get that nice stance as seen above. That's a cool cat to have just chillin in your garage.

        You could always put it on airbags. But the car is surprisingly light and fun to drive.

        Can These rs7/s8's engines be tuned by handheld devices? or do they need to be cracked open / drilled?

        I'm not sure if the RS7 and S8 have the same ECU.


        Let's see who we have who has tunes for these. I think @AMR and @Jake@Eurocharged.com

        The current RS7 and S8 are equipped with an MED17.

        Reading is done via BDM which would intal ECU being removed.

        The Mk2 S8 5.2L V10 FSI uses a MED9 ECU therefore can be read via OBD2 (on-board-diagnostic) port.
