How long you had it? Are those magazine / quoted numbers, or are they normal YB numbers that you see?

LOL...those are mag numbers. I expect to get a little better, but not much. Once the tune is on though, should be high 10 sec. Picked it up last weekend. Never thought I would say this about a car, but yeah, it has scared me a few times. A G-force that has to be experienced to be believed.

No doubt. Is your ECU reflashable or do you need to piggyback / standalone? Assuming your fueling isn't maxed out in stock configuration, I'm sure you can gain some nice power throughout the RPM band with a recalibration (there's power to be gained going from CA piss gas to our 93E10 here in the northeast, not factoring in an OEs desire to keep the safety margin as high as possible).

I see the thread title is 2013 S8, but your signature says 2018 S8...do you have multiple S8s in your fleet? :D

Hah..I cought that in my sig and fixed it before I saw your post. ECU is reflashable. Some small mods to the exhaust, an intake and a tune should net arount 180-200 hp. Engine is built for much higher HP/TQ so the fuel system is more than capable. Right now, it has all the power I need. Not kidding...this thing is ungodly fast, especially for weighing so much. It puts a grin on my face every time. Literally, it shouldn't be able to do the things it does...yet it does.

Those Audi motors make some serious power gains from bolt-ons. Should be fun!

So whats a 2013 S8 cost these days? A very sweet vehicle indeed... I would bet fixing it aint cheap either!

Pics of the rear interior? I had no idea it had a fooking fridge! That is awesome.
