    • GIAC tuned B8 Audi S5 3.0 TFSI sets new factory blower record and breaks into the 10's - 10.976@124.86mph

      Congratulations to AudiBoost member @spool twice for breaking into the 10's with his B8 Audi S5. To AudiBoost's knowledge is the only 3.0 TFSI in the 10's on the factory blower. It just edges out APR and their 11.012 pass in a B8 S4 from last month.


      The full details are from Spool Twice below:

      Hi all,

      Went to the track and thought I'd share my on-going results. The track conditions were very favorable during my runs, north/tail wind, very chilly breeze, 62-65F ambient with the sun heating up the track. D/A's were about 200 - 400ft. Hopefully Mother Nature gives us a few more surprises here in FL, she seems to give us 90F days, then a random 70F day. This may have been the last horrah for now until fall.

      Setup:

      GIAC ECU: high rev / high ratio / dual-pulley file
      GIAC TCU: high rev file
      GIAC fuel kit (boost activated)
      Autotech HPFP
      AWE-tuning 57.55mm S/C pulley
      Fluidampr 179mm crank pulley + Kevlar-reinforced belt
      Crown Motorsports 200 cell metallic matrix HFC
      Crown Motorsports X-pipe
      034 Motorsports intake tube
      aFe pro "wet" filter
      Modded OEM airbox + reinforced air scoop
      Kincaid KillerChiller + AWE-tuning reservoir + AWE-tuning pump

      Fuel:
      -a mix of 8 gallons 100 + e85 (30%), and 2 gallons of residual 93 pump (was doing some pump logs the day prior to). I ran the tank down to 1/3 driving throughout the day

      Rims/Tires:
      -Bridgestone Potenza RE71R 255/35/19 (tire pressure 39 psi front / 38 psi rear)
      -OEM S5 "Rotor" wheels (27-28lbs)

      Weight savings:
      -no spare/jack/tools1/3th tank of fuel at the beginning of the evening down to slightly below 1/8th tank at the finish
      -otherwise full interior/weight

      The car performed flawlessly on each run, up-shifting right where the revised file needed it to. Boost was approx 21-22psi starting from 6800rpm in 2nd gear throughout the entire run.

      sorry for the crappy cellphone motion pic:

        Isn't this the stock blower trap speed record?

        I can't confirm 100% (but I'm 98% sure), but its the start of the race season for many mid-to-northern people so its likely to be surpassed very very very soon, especially once more modded cars make it to the track in favorable conditions (such as APR's ultra-charger set-ups or those with cams/head work/ported blower).

        Why haven't you bought the Ultracharger yet?

        I've been working with GIAC on their dual-pulley file for a few months as one of their beta-testers so I stuck with them. Switching to APR + their ultracharger would be a nice chunk of down payment on another vehicle, so it's not an option for me. Absolutely nothing against APR or their set-ups, its just not cost effective for me Click here to enlarge

        thanks guys! if you think about it, its essentially a "bolt-on" car (and not even FBO at that...) with matching ECU/TCU tuning
