The top version of the Audi’s luxurious family car is called the RS6 and it gives more than enough of a push for most people, providing them with 412 kW and 700 Nm of torque. However, there are those who find this insufficient and they need to turn to special edition models, or tuners. The answer is – tuners. Special edition cars usually cost far more than the standard ones, while a good tuner can give you more power than the special edition for a portion of the price. Xcede Performance is a perfect example of this, if we’re speaking of the Audi RS6 tuning, since their two upgrades for the car bring you 501 kW and 903 Nm of torque and 537 kW and 1000 Nm of torque, respectively.
STAGE 1 AUDI RS6 TUNING
So, what could we do to the 4.0 TSFI? The Stage 1 RS6 tuning remap is just that. A remap – there are no new parts installed and the engineers from Xcede Performance have managed to extract more from the existing units by carefully following the original software architecture. The changes start with adding more air to the cylinders by increasing the turbo pressure using tweaks on the OEM ECU Bosch MED17.1.1. More air means more power, but in order to burn all that air, the engine also needs additional amount fuel. This is why ECU is remapped to provide more fuel for the combustion chambers.
Lastly, moving the ignition to an earlier stage of a stroke means that the throttle response is improved and the car jumps at the very thought of pressing the pedal.
All of these simple, logical and safe tweaks actually give a massive increase in power. After the Stage 1 Xcede Audi RS6 tuning remap the car is already significantly more powerful than the Performance version, boasting 501 kW and 903 Nm of torque. This is a massive boost compared to the stock car with 90 kW and 203 Nm more.
Now, remember that the stock car was capable of going all the way up to 305km/h. This is why removing the top speed limiter from the car is a good idea. 305km/h came from 412 kW. 501 kW is sure to push it significantly faster.
