If you recently decided to buy a used Audi A4, you may want to look into modifications for it to bring it up to speed.
Especially if you purchased a 2.8, which doesn’t have many mods. Even then, you can still add a few items that will make your A4 more powerful, such as the chip, the exhaust, and the intake.
The first and cheapest mod you will want to add is the ECU chip, which will boost you about 50 horsepower or so for around $400.
The ECU chip is the computer that controls the fuel flow, and a good brand name can increase the efficiency of your Audi A4.
The software can be upgraded as well, depending on how aggressive you want to make the car. Make sure you go with a brand name like Giac so you don’t get ripped off.
The next mod you will do will be the intake. This is just for sound, so don’t spend too much on it. Some claim a horsepower boost, but it’s unlikely get you more than 1 or 2 hp.
Some owners create their own intakes, but this can be problematic if you don’t know how an engine works or what you are doing as it may end up with water leaks. You won’t need a fancy or expensive one for this, and this mod is entirely optional.
After the intake, you can upgrade your exhaust. This too is more for sound than anything else, but unlike the intake you can actually get a boost in horsepower from a good high flow exhaust.
Try to go with a name brand like Carbonio, but if you want to save you can also try getting a custom exhaust. If you want even more power, you can also add a test pipe, but this involves removing your catalytic converter and so you won’t pass emissions tests anymore. The last thing you want to be saying is I spend all my money on my car!
While a 2.8 A4 isn’t quite as powerful as a 1.8, the above mods will still give you quite a boost in horsepower, efficiency, and will help you in getting more power out of your Audi A4, get more power out of your Audi A4, which will help to bring your A4 into the realm of high performance automobiles.
Finding a good used Audi can be a great way to save money on luxury vehicles, and making it into a powerful car can give you vehicle that will last for years.
