RS4 owner for 1month. Previously had RS2.

Could not pass this car by when it came up for sale. Like new inside. Engine cleaner than new. Very well maintained, all servicing spot on. Car in original spec.
Anyone know who can remap so power does not cut off when left foot braking. RS4 does not allow throttle and brake to be on at same time!!!!! Obviosly to preserve brakes or something, but does not work for my style of driving. ESP on or off makes no difference.
Hope it is a simple thing to change. All help appreciated.

Is that feelou's old car? He recently replaced his B5 RS4 with a B7 RS4.

What a good time to be Swiss, too  ;D

I must say it feels somewhat weird. All the intimacy I had with this car is now shared by someone else.
But glad you like it. A superb car indeed, even when compared with the B7.

Enjoy!

feelou, did you have the ecu tuned? Did you revert this to factory settings when you sold it?

The car was still re-mapped when I handed it over to Giltrap. I would guess that they reverted the ECU to original when they serviced it.

A shame if they did, as it really improve throttle response and opened up the high end of the rev range

Hi Feelou.
Great to make contact with previous owner. Glad to find a car looked after, appreciate it.
Can the remap be done directly via diagnostic port? or do they re-chip?
When you had it done could you brake while throttle was on, without car cutting power?
Could Giltrap change it for me, if not who can you recommend?

Did you have a spare wheel for the car? I also see that 2 of the rims are the soft ones, did you have the others replaced or was it previous owner?

I am sure there are a couple of more questions, but will catch up later. Will pm you sometime. Cheers

I read somewhere that "boost pressure is boost pressure doesnt matter about the size of the turbo", ie: small turbos spool quicker but big turbos hold thier power longer etc. Clearly i am far short of 350hp, yet my 1.8t is running 1.4 bar. Surely your engine is using more air than mine, so does this mean your turbo is flowing more air at the same boost pressure, or you are running more boost? ??? or is it another variable such as cam timings and head work etc that accounts for the increase in power...?
Sorry for sounding thick but ive heard so many contradicting opinions ::) :)
Yes boost pressure is boost pressure. bigger turbos yeild more volume, but obviously create mor lag etc as you know.
The power im lookin for with the turbo i've choosen, is also with  major engine management mods, cooler, exhaust, various sensors etc. my expectations are alittle hi wth the boost level indicated by revo as a max boost, but we'll keep working on that topic. i indent on leaving the engine stock, however the cam timing and cylinder head mods u mention, can release supprising hp gains. can only speek from other manufactures engines that i see alot of..... ;)

Welcome here Evan!

You know who I am I'm sure when you spot my Integra Type R that you built into a Targa car for me  ;D.



Didn't know you were planning such radical performance mods for the Audi! Don't think for a moment I'm going to let you loose on my DTM A4  :o


Hi Greg.
Sorry i missed you post.
Now about that A4 of yours......... ;)

FYI, on my RS4 I purchased the "factory winter wheel" which fits over the rs4 brakes and also into the wheel well (narrower than the summer/std wheel).

If you press all three pedals the engine will cut out - its built in as safety measure.
As for removeing it I wouldn't know. Send us your VIN which should be WUAZZZ*********

The B6 RS4 came with a lightweight soft wheel, when they had lots of complaints of dented wheels they then came out with a tougher heavier weight wheel. They were replaced as a no cost recall.

 :o  There's an apparition in the driver's seat!

But really, that looks amazing.  The wheels look really good on that.  Is it sporting some lowering springs or have you put bigger wheels on there?
