2002 Audi A4 1.8T Quattro
Excellent increase in accleration. The 1.8T actually feels like it is the proper motor for the car now. The ability to easily flip the car back to stock is a great feature with this product as well.
I have some concerns about what the extra boost will eventually do to my little four banger turbo but my research really only uncovered the need to change the MAF, O2 sensor, etc., more often. The diverter valve should also be replaced from what I understand to accommodate the extra boost, I will more than likely do this soon.
Just got the APR Stage 1 Direct Port yesterday and what a difference. I love my A4, the styling, comfort, ride, handling (esp in rain/snow with the Quattro) but the car always felt a bit heavy and slow during hard accleration. The APR chip most certainly solved this. No, the car doesn't feel like a 600hp rocket but for the first time ever I can actually feel it pull with the pedal down esp above 3k RPM in gears 2,3,4,5. I can best describe the feeling by saying that the car now feels light and fast instead of sluggish during accleration, a vast improvement. This chip took an underpwoered car and brought it right where it should be performancewise.
