There is not much you can do regarding re-map or chip for the 3.0. A lot of money will get you very small performance gains. For perfromance sports exhausts, have a look at the Milltek website!

3.0, V6 woooohoooooooooo! I would kill (almost) to get a sound like that! grin.gif

I read that my 1.8T can get up to 380BHP somewhere!!! But there was a price to pay...... 223BHP will do me! "223BHP" Did I say that? blush.gif I meant 190.......... tongue.gif

As UBM says, you're not going to get too much bang for your buck but you can fit an exhaust system and (if you must wink.gif) intake. A re-map will give you 10bhp and 10 lbft. I think APR and MTM do a supercharger kit.............. UHOH7.GIF

If it's a manual then a shortshift gear lever will give you fast and precise gear changes.An APR snub mount will tighten up the engine/gear change (man or auto) too.

AMD- Tuning

Star Performance - Tuning

Stratmosphere- Intakes, shortshifters

AMS Shortshifetrs + bits and bobs

Neuspeed

APR- Snub mount (3.0)

ONly thing to get apart from a Milltek that will get you any serious gains before bolting on superchargers etc is a custom manifold, although even that is a bit dodgy if the car is under warranty. The place I had my zorst done said (I think but don't take as gospel) one could free up to another 50 ft/lbs of torque.

K&N do a replacement filter and have an induction kit under development, not seen induction kits anywhere else for it.

My Miltek sounds great but don't expect any noticeable performance increase. Chipping lucky to get an extra 10bhp, not worth it. Better spark plugs maybe.

Think the cheapest solution is either nitrous or an electronic supercharger which will put 1psi into to intake and the engine management will do the rest.

Or MTM turbo's grin.gif £10K

Stratmosphere Do one..........

Stratmosphere brings you HyperFlow technology for the 3.0 V6 A4. Like it's big brother the V8 S4, the A4 3.0 benefits from a new higher flow induction system. Using the same technique and design as the S4 the new HyperFlow for the 3.0 is flat-out fun. In the A4 this system is even more noticeable to the driver than the S4 system. In our driving we felt a big change in the car and you will too.

Cheers BUB beerchug.gif

Are induction kits really noisy and a bit chavy? Would I look/sound a bit sad with one?
