The 4.0 v8 twin turbo engine in the C8 RS6 (also found in RS7 model) produces 600PS (591bhp) and 590 lb ft (800 Nm) from the factory. But sometimes that’s just not enough!
With our software upgrades, we can achieve performance increases well over +100 bhp and + 100 Nm which completely transforms these cars. Take a look at the options below and the example we had on our dyno for tuning.
Stage 1 – (700 bhp)
Our Stage 1 ‘software-only remap’ achieves astonishing performance figures without any mechanical modifications to the RS6, and without pushing excessive power outside the limitations of the standard components. The performance increase is obviously very noticeable, but the all round driveability, engine response and smoothness even at part throttle is magnificent also.
Couple this with a our Stage1 gearbox (TCU) software upgrade and the car really does become sharp, with even more rapid gear shifts, smoother changes and better torque delivery.
Stage 2 – (730 bhp)
The exhaust system can be quite restrictive, and like most modern cars the Audi C8 RS models are fitted with GPF/OPF (particulate filters). Upgrading to a free flowing exhaust is always going to achieve an improvement in power and noise to take the car to that next level. Some high flowing exhausts from brands such as Milltek, Akakrapovic or Remus can provide the results without compromising the vehicle’s emissions .
An upgrade to the air intake such as the Eventuri ones fitted to the car pictured here on our dyno will not only compliment Stage 2 power but also look great in the engine bay.
The Stage 2 software calibration to suit the modifications is the final step to complete the transformation for the Audi RS6.
Peak power is obviously increased, but the difference to the power delivery throughout the whole RPM range is the real winner here, meaning the difference between Stage1 and Stage1 is definitely going to be noticed.
Of course, a gearbox software upgrade is recommended for Stage 2 also.
Stage1 ECU software upgrade – €750
Stage 2 ECU Software upgrade – €850
Add-on Gearbox (TCU) software upgrade – €250
