I may have to switch out sooner than later if it doesn't go low 12's - high 11's.
Jason
it will go low 12 for sure as i did it with a different tuning box. 12.2 was the best.

I am sure with the JB we will be able to go high elevens for sure.

Don't have fuel control running yet, but at 4psi over stock, with 5 gallons of E85 added to 91, times are improving.

I also found it runs quicker short shifting around 6000rpm than riding it out to redline. Typical of undersized turbos.

Thanks for the update? Any ballpark idea when you think we can get our hands on these?
Thanks,

Hopefully a few weeks. Going to finalize the wiring harness later today so we can get going on that production, while I continue working on the firmware and mapping.

Twin? I thought new S4 was a single and RS5 has twins.

S4 is single. Engine is shared with SQ5, S5, Porsche Panamera and new Cayenne.
RS5 is twin engine shared with new RS4, Porsche Panamera S and new Cayenne S. Sensors are shared with S4 so most likely the same unit with a different tune will be compatible to these.

Yeah my bad on that comment. Shows how little research I did before buying this one. I went to dealership for something else but saw this and jumped on it. I did not imagine the tuning potential for this car would be this limited. I am hoping for the best!

i'm sure upgrades to a larger turbo won't be too far off, as long as there's room and that it makes sense.

The turbo is easy to reach, so I'm sure we'll see movement on that end once the tuning is sorted.
