Picked up the A6 after twin turbo install.
Baseline numbers were 344rwhp/347tq with LG's, Halltech and no tune.
The final numbers netted me over 200hp gain AT THE WHEELS!!!

Having an auto tranny I was expecting about 500rwp but have to say I am very impressed with this kit and LAPD's clean install. Looks like it came this way from the factory!

We also installed a turbo cam: 222/222 581/581 115, and 3" APS exhaust so that is a contributing factor to the numbers as well.

Car is making 480tq @ 3000rpm:surprised and pulls insane. Runs like stock until you stomp on it. Absolutely zero turbo lag, surging/bucking and idles at 600rpm with very little shake.

APS 3" exhaust is awesome as well and sounds friggen bad ass. This car is such a blast to drive now. Power is overwhelming the tires after 2500rpm however, and will break loose very easily. I'm learning to control it by feathering the accelerator for now until I shed the runflats for some sticky tires.

Big thanks to Shawn, Al, Doug, and all the crew at LA Performance Division.:thumbsup:

No tranny changes yet. A6 seems to hold up well to the power. The rear-end may be the weak-link though as some have found out.

One issue I have currently is at times it doesn't want to shift at WOT when using the paddles.:huh: Tried it on a 1-2 shift today and I hit the paddle twice and it failed to shift. My guess is the car accelerates faster than the computer can read. This has been an ongoing problem with some that installed headers etc especially when the tires loose traction.
