TTRS intercooler options

I've seen recent comments on how good or NOT the factory intercooler is, especially after a remap.

Anyone fitted an uprated version? I've seen mention of a Forge version. There is also a Wagner cooler.

Anyone tried it?

I have the Pro Alloy IC, which I think is the best unit.
does sub 13seconds  30-130mph and 30-60mph in 1.9 seconds

Have you raced him again since fitting the Intercooler to see if you were faster this time?  

looks to me like he reeled you in down the straight
mrd

In a race yes...That was a top speed event which looking at that video you were no faster.

Mark was asking about upgrade options and you post a a video of your car with a standard IC against an rs4 which demonstrates what?

Not looking to ruffle your feathers..just curious? I think my car is the fastest thing on earth too
mrd

touchy people here

lol

all the dog and baby wagons got faster top speeds than me.
Just went to have a laugh and meet up with like minded people.

No one was racing, it's a fun event.

Posted a pic of my PA IC and a vid of what sort of speeds a TTRS can do.

Bhp wins every time at Vmax

why not answer who's mapping the TTroads sports car on the other thread, that would be much more usefull ?

Have you done a deal with MRC  to do TTRS Loba units ?

and is REVO mapping the TT road sport car ?

I quite like these baby carriers and when I retire could well see myself in one

i love the TTRS id have one tomorrow, but theres somthing about stomping on a performace car in a Avant and even better when 10 year old
mrd

only two reasons to be in the TT section here

your either unhappy with your hair or looking for a special friend.

you all know you like them  

I don't even class my TTRS as a performance car, it's just my day to day run about.

theres many that think that, but not me i think there a awesome car with fantastic handling from videos ive seen    

and i think your IC is top notch i like the end tanks (big and smooth) looks to be a great design.

They dont need to tell me, I saw it with my own two eyes  

As it stands, the OEM cooler is shit, some people say the wagner isnt really much better, and the forge and pro alloy have similiar performance which is dictated by the lack of space.

Pro Alloy seem top guys, nice bit of kit and welding  
I look forward to seeing a Loba TTRS though, that should be awesome.

All the hot women love a TTRS

I have'nt got another car, I already mentioned that
Obviously in a lame attempt to be clever you've looked at my previous posts. Funny that you selectively missed out that it was my other half that got the Mini  
My mum a milf? Hardly, shes over 65, but once again, if you like that sort of thing.......

Its alright mate, ive got a  500 1.4 lounge aswell as the TT. Well my missus has. MrD actually has got a mini though lol.

Ok cougar then, point im making though, apart from the R8, the TTRS is audis biggest head turner.
dest

Speak for yourself, I personally dont like it at-all.
I want to like the TT, and have wanted to from the first day it ever came out, but it does nothing for me.
Id also like to like it because its a 5 pot, after having 2 S2's in the past it would be nice to know there was another 5 pot I could have in the future!
As for the R8, I don't like that one single bit.
Feel free to check my posts again cause I said exactly the same earlier in the week, Im not just saying it to wind you up!
mrd

why would I ever look at any of your past posts and be clever ?

strange......

my other car is a Mini  

I guess it's all about being secure with your sexuality which gives you the freedom to drive what you want.

I only look in the TT section here, but why do you if you dislike them ?
dest

I drive exactly what I want
Nothing makes me laugh more than those who are dictated to by their missus about what they are allowed to own lol

I love the irony of a TT owner talking about sexuality though

LOL. Reminds me of my mate who brought an S8 came home with it and his misuses was furious that he brought a car without seeking her advice first. He just said 'what the f*^ck do you know about cars anyway?' they split up soon after.

no lag difference, I think it would have to be a lot bigger to change lag.
these are new engines I think every one is still learning.

I did vist REVO and had more boost but that did give more lag, so when I got home I took the boost down again, but had new fuel settings.

car runs a dream and punches way past what a 400BHp car should do.
Such a sleeper, and pussy cat, but floor it and not much can keep up.

It's hard to know what you would do with more power on the road.

but I guess I will find out when I visit the TT shop in a few weeks.

Tbh a ttrs wouldn't turn my head?

But i'm a big fan of that engine and powertrain.

For me the dog carriers are far rarer and worthy of a bit of head turning.

a f430 Scud with a powercraft exhaust is head tuning

people always stopping and staring, pointing at it, strangers coming up to etc

the attention it gets can be annoying at times tbh.

Never got any of those things with the b7 rs4 convertible.

Im surprised how easily the TT left the RS4 standing in the video. My mate has a TTRS Ive been in it & doubt very much if it would even get a jump on my car & Ive only got 420hp.
Was the RS4 driver trying?

ok then , its the daddy of the RS Brand, hmm for me its the RS2.
mrd

hi missmouse

I just took vids of all the cars I went up with at Vmax

I only posted the one V the Audi here as people know how fast the RS4 are, so it gives an idea what a mapped TTRS can do all be  it with 80Bhp less.

The RS4 v8 never makes quoted power sadly.
so I doubt you have 420BHp if you have a standard RS4, but thats another story/thread.

here is one of my car v a RUF 911, but as no one knows much about them I did not post that one.


Link


you must remember my car is tuned slighty, but it would kill a 420BHp RS4 even though I have less Bhp.

I am not saying my cars fast, most Audi's at Vmax ran faster than me, some by 20mph or so.
mrd

this is a 1/4 mile with the TTshops  two cars
sub 4 seconds for the TTRS
another TTRS did 3.1 seconds to 60mph

I would be interested to see a sub 4 second standard RS4

I think the white car is big Bhp  but I am sure some one will correct me on that as I am not sure.

It's the TTrs thread of win.

Anyway my car is faster and turns more heads.

not really Mark
but didnt Dougs S4 do 3.3 secs and 202 mph.

Well I cant comment on your car, only my mates ( which is std) BTW I have a dyno readout of my cars BHP ( which was tuned by MRC) & also,its a B5 not a B7. 420hp isnt very much for a B5!

It's only banter, your car sounds great fella and is certainly not slow.

I'm sure i'm not the only one who watched the videos's.

Yes I think we have had similar threads! What are we comparing here? one car is two seater ( realistically!) TEN years ahead in technology, the other is an old estate car! You could compare a superbikes' performance to your car!

But which is better? .. well it depends on what you mean by better. Its more a case of which do you prefer.
Or in my case - which I can afford!

I could with an unlimited budget very likely make a Saxo faster than anyones car here!
I just dont think in my experience a TTRS is exactly light years ahead of the "antique" RS4!
dace

Guys, just to put the record straight, I did not launch my car from the start and I think that is clear from how much I gain on the TT.
Vmax is not a sprint.
james-Audidoctor

mmmm this seems to be causing some intrest !  
i was in the passenger seat of dave's RS4 in that video and i can confirm it wasn't launched and proberly didn't get WOT untill after the apex of the turn.
The TTRS is a very quick car and youv'e just got to love the way and ten year old estate car can still cut the mustard with the lastest Audi technology.
I think the RS4 recorded a faster top speed on the day and was catching the TTRS as per the video.
I will be attending the next V Max in my S4 lets see how that does
