Thanks for posting but I'm completely staggered that you would dyno run the R8 without any visible signs of cooling fans :eek:

Does the car in the video have the Milltek exhausts on? or is it just stock?

I got this done about 2 weeks ago. I immediately was able to tell the difference!! I was very hesitant to go forward with this. My dealer has a motorsports division and they completed it in like 30 minutes and the cost was like 900 bucks.

So far so good...

Mplaso did you have this done at Reeves? I am also in Tampa and have an 09 that I would be interested in chipping. Who did you deal with?

Yes I got it done at Reeves... Jeff Holbcomb who was the Audi Service Manager and not over at Porsche and the Motorsports division. He is the one that helped me out. He is great! Highly recommend taking to him.

What color and where in Tampa? PM me...

Whoever tried the Chiptunning and saw a great torque difference, did you also have your exhaust replaced or just chiptunning? usually these people say that the chiptunning is making the difference along with the exhaust, while in reality the only difference is either from the exhaust itself or our impression due to the noise difference that we hear..

I have this but we got ridculous figures on the dyno run.I spoke at length to revo technik and they said the gains are about 25bhp and similar amount of torque,it makes a very noticable difference in driving and I would reccomend the chip and exhaust route to anyone.(mine is the milltek resonated exhaust fyi)

We helped APR do the final tuning and dyno work for their system. REAL results are out there and we are happy to discuss them...

My issue is this:

1. Most people have had the ECU with Exhaust upgrade. So we can't isolate which component is producing the gain! This is a problem.

2. There is very little talk or info regarding real world gains on this forum. If owners did purchase and experience great results, you would think they would be shouting it from the tree tops! Very strange.

Anyway, hopefully REVO can do a trial first. If not, I won't waste my time...
