C7 S6 tuning compared to C7 RS6

Just wondering what a c7 S6 drivetrain can take compared to  the c7 RS6 with the different gearbox and slightly different engine.

Tuning for the S6 will be considerably cheaper when using RS6 turbos offcourse,like S4 using RS4 parts.

But never seem to stumble upon any info regarding this

Audiboost covered this a while ago but not much since to be honest
They look a great machine but as you say, g/box is weal point.....

I like the idea of a rs6 saloon.

Sportmile have done at least one high power S6, might be worth searching for that to see what is documented about the gearbox.

It's something I'm looking at (S6 with RS6 turbos) in a few years time. It's getting more popular over in the US where there's a small tuner scene for the S6 but I haven't read anywhere about gearbox blowing up yet so I'm hopeful that it'll be able to take 700-750hp and 950nm without too many issues.

One thing I wouldn't do is many LC launches. The GB ECU is limited to 200 LC's, any more and LC stops working which requires a new mechatronic unit to fix *IF* you want to use LC again, otherwise it's fine.

I would NEVER use LC....ever...  I hate that shit tbh

We can fix the 200 launches limit in C7 S6 TCUs and other types too!

Any info on the subject here Mihnea?

Now i have been keeping my eyes on Audi S6 C7 for sometimes now ones the price goes down in UK i might get one its much better then Rs6 C6  

And i might do another project RS6 C7 Saloon  
Marc R

Really a valid point to get an S6....no doubt.

It seems that the RS6 turbo's just bolt on to the S6 engine... and a custom tune and your done.

Am I right or missing something?

Could it be that simple?

That could well be true, I remember posting about it here: http://audisrs.com/viewtopic.php?t=48481

That news al also quite old... not hearing much about this engine lately.

The US is still the place to look for info/parts as their S6 "scene" is huge comapred to ours.

RS6 turbos are a direct swap too from what I've read in US forums.
Marc R

To be on the safe side I just bought a set of RS6 turbo's for my S6.

JD engineering in Netherlands says they are capable of 750hp on the S6 but due to the gearbox they limit it to 700hp.

I guess that's well worth the money...in fact it's great bang for the buck.
