    hahaha! great point. S4s are killer cars..!

    are you modded at all ?
    they call STi's STDs because everyone is getting them.

    How does a Stage 2 WRX compare?
    I should have clarified in that a stage 2 06 WRX would have a chance.

    06 Stage 2 WRX should put out close to the same numbers and maybe higher torque numbers (depending on elevation and dyno used). This is only a guestimate of course, since there aren't really any stage 2 figures out there yet (at least from cobb). Based on the fact that it has the 2.5 liter with a slightly smaller turbo, the numbers shouldn't be that far off from an STi at stage 2.

    The audi weighs in at a porky 3800-3900 depending on tranny choice. The WRX comes in at a comparatively svelt 3200-3300 lbs. Do the math.

    High speed run will be another story though.

    When I raced the S4 I was at a Cobb Stage 2 with 225hp/225tq. I don't think he launched, but I put about 6 car lengths on him in no time. I raced him before that and could catch him from a roll, too. They are nice looking cars, but a WRX Stage 2 or better will have no problems with a stock S4. I'm now Stage 2.5 and have pulled on M3's up to around 110mph, after that they pull strong.

    I raced a TT S4 from a roll when I was stock, he had TBE and a chip. He walked away from me like I wasn't even moving.

    Chipping a turbo car is waaaaay different than chipping a N/A car.

    A S4 V8 gain 45-60hp from chip, exhaust and intake...

    Now a TT S4 with those mods is different story.

    while this is generally true I tend to look towards VW in this respect. The N/A VW VR6 will still pick up some pretty decent gains from a chip so I would think that their similarly designed V8 might do something in the same ballpark. 60chp from intake/exhaust/chip... probably not. but 45/50 chp from intake/exhaust/chip on a V8 = very possibly IMO.

    The new S4's run mid 13's it seems from what I have seen so if you are stock 06' then I would say you are going to lose this one. If you drive the hell out of your car and he just your average driver you might hang and make it pretty close, but most likely you will lose... From a roll, dont even think about it.

    You definately cant mod the S4 like you used to be able to on the twinturbo's. Or like you can on the WRX's for that matter.
    Obviously I'm still a fan of the Subaru's since I'm here.
    But I think my next car would have to be more luxury while still being quick. Maybe the S8. That would be nice.
