12.6 @ 109 mph - 2010 A6 - Slip Inside...

We installed a Corsa exhaust system, Rotofab CAI, and SLP U/D Pulley.

Baseline numbers were 327 RWHP / 340 RWTQ. With a tune only it made 344 RWHP / 362 RWTQ. After installing the Corsa, Rotofab, and pulley it made 363 RWHP/ 376 RWTQ.

Stock vs. Tune



Stock vs. Corsa, Rotofab, and Pulley



Click Here for a video showing Start, Idle, Rev, Dyno, and Street Footage.

It ran a best of 12.6 @ 109 mph on stock tires at Milan Dragway.

That can't be the A6 doesn't run. Good job at proving otherwise.

Thanks! Yeah I was going for the stealthy look, got rid of the wing all together. Right now it has a catless downpipe, K&N filter(intakes suck for these cars) and lots of painstaking hours put into its custom tune which is what really helps turns these cars into little animals.

How much power did you make on the dyno? My car is all stock except for a tune and it made 280 WHP / 320 WTQ @ 20 lbs.

I've gone through a lot of tunes, one was knocking like crazy, so I've been testing some different ones. Even on the shitty tune I made 346wtq, I have the sheets at home but I'm at work. Right now it's at 321/363 on 22lbs.

Speaking of Cobalts my brother ran a 2006-2008 model Cobalt SS (stock) that couldn't break out of the 10's in the 1/8th mile... is that normal? I though those things would be at least in the mid 9's.

We did not remove it completely, unless requested by the customer we always reduce it rather than remove it.

This particular car ran 13.4 in stock form.

Tune only was worth 17 RWHP / 22 RWTQ. On this car, we then installed the Corsa, Rotofab, and U/D pulley for a gain of an additional 19 RWHP / 14 RWTQ.

On our LS3 G8 GXP, the Corsa system was worth 10 RWHP.

If you would like your time added to the fastest 1/4 mile list, you should tranfer your time slip over to that thread. 1320junkie and helpers are providing links to the timeslips from the fastest list.

Do the cold air inductions systems, such as the Rotofab, require a custom tune? or can you just bolt it right on and go? The reason I ask is my father has an 06 Mustang GT and whenhe installed his C&L intake the car had to be tuned.

In our opinion, yes. could some one who NEVER beats on the car put a CAI on and not retune? yes, but most people who put a CAI on aren't going to baby the car forever. As we have seen on the G8's the intakes are maybe worth 5-10 hp with no tune, the tune alone is worth 15, but together they are usually 30-40 hp
