Adam's D4 S8 4.0T

Adam brought us his 2013 Audi S8 with performance in mind. Some might think it is impractical to start a big power build with such a big body sedan, but this sleeper is going to be one heck of a powerful sleeper.

Adam decided it was sufficient to start with APR stage 1 performance software. After getting used to the power for a few months it was time to get dyno results. After seeing the expected results, it was time for APR to step back in. With the release of their 4.0L Cast Downpipes on the horizon, Adam knew it was time to get a set on pre-order. In the interim opted to spring for exhaust replacement as well, when in Rome, right? With menacing sounds and quad 100mm velvet black tips there is no hiding the fact that this car is packing heat.

Now with stage 2 tackled, it is time to find the intake side restrictions. Excelerate Performance is partnering with Backfire Fabrication to build and test intake setups on this car. Stay tuned as this project unfolds… there are turbo upgrades in the future.
