S4 V6T

Question.

Why does the B8 S4 have V6T on the wing?

Guess the T stands for turbo? But it's supercharged

Or does the T stand for something in German?

Not sure what the T stands for in German, but I do know it indicates forced induction...which can be turbo or superb charger,  or anything else out there

I think 'Kompressor' is the basic German word.  I think it was an option lol.

Mine is V6T also.

After lots of googling

Suppisidly audi didn't want any other S badge on the S4 just the S4 badge itself.

So left V6T

Though guess it will be ok for the B9 if that's going to be twin turbo

There are one with a Supercharged badge I've read, titanium package?  Possibly USA not sure.

I believe it's just marketing - they think their average customer is too thick to know the difference between turbo and supercharging so just use 'T' to mean forced induction.  Hence you get v6t badges on everything from a v6 diesel SQ5 to the S4/5, and v8t on the bigger stuff (although none of them are supercharged)

The 'supercharged' badges are available as an option - they're not cheap but do look a bit better to me, so long as they're stuck on straight!

Yeah, it's a "sort of" contraction of TFSI which simply denotes a forced induction, direct-injection petrol engine.

Pub quiz time...

For 10 points, what does the 'S' in TFSI stand for?

Anyone....?



































Stratified.

Not many people know the answer.

Did they ever get round to fixing that though? I remember hearing talk about making the engine run hotter and some special coating on the valves...
