Thank you Guilty for these figures.

I found an R8 tuning from a reputable Swiss firm, but they publish rather more conservative figures (performance-wise).

What is your source?

Following are the DIGITALTUNING figures.

I had them work on my old NSX and the result was very evident, with much better in-gear accelleration (in top gear the 80-120 km/h time was reduced by a full two seconds).


DIGITAL TUNING (written in Italian with my notes in English)

Marca AUDI
Modello R8
Tipo motore 4.2 V8 - 420CV
Anno 2007 (informazione indicativa, dipendente dalla nazione e dall'anno di acquisto dell'auto)
Cilindri 8
Cilindrata 4163

Dati tecnici Originali -> DigitalTuning
Potenza [CV] 420 / 7800 min-1 -> 450 / 7930 min-1
Coppia [Nm] 429 / 4500 min-1 -> 502 / 4270 min-1
Velocità [Km/h] 301 NEW -> 306
Accelerazione 0-100 Km/h 4.6 NEW -> 4.4
Consumo [l/100 Km] 13.5 NEW -> 13.1

Aumento (POWER INCREASE) della potenza di 30 [CV]
Incremento (TOURQUE INCREASE) della coppia di 73 [Nm]
Diminuzione (IMPROVED MILAGE) dei consumi di 0.4 [l/100 km]

Prezzo 699 [€] 1160 [CHF]
Spedizione 25 [€] 35 [CHF]

I will be considering this tuning in the future after break-in completion.

Guilty,

Would you be so kind to explain this BS top speed? 319km/h?! With new gearbox?! Normal R8 is hitting 301km/h at almost 8000rpm in sixth so...

Also 37hp just from new ECU?

Hp hike is possible if the ecu is as usual set to conservative levels?

Good point about the top speed unless they have moved the limiter

+37 peak hp is extremely optimistic for a high compression naturally aspirated motor of modest displacement.

Ziptuning has a good reputation, although I can't tell you how accurate this is (untill I tried it myself!)

319 km/h is exactly in the limiter!

Bye,

Guys, If we compare Zip Tuning vs Digital Tuning figures you will find that they are both similar:

Zip Tuning VS Digital Tuning

Max HP -> 457HP vs 450HP
Max Torque -> 464Nm vs 502Nm

This means 2 different Tuners are claiming increases of at least 30HP. So, maybe it is possible.

I suggest Guilty or CeBe go ahead and purchase the ECU upgrade and report back to us immediately!!! It is their duty!! :D

PS: I'm Italian and I read what CeBe has written and it's correct!

Hi Guilty,
please let us know about the ziptuning? They are based in NL. Are they reliable?
I am getting mine in Feb 08 and i am seriously considering them. I got in touch with them and they recommended me to wait till 5000km before having the engine tuned.
Take care,
:)
