    • Audi RS3 sedan on E85 with turbo upgrade vs. everything - E82 135i, GT350, 911 Turbo, M6, Z06, etc.

      At this point there is no need to tell you how potent the 2.5 TFSI powered Audi RS3 sedan is and just let the car do the talking with runs on the highway against some potent competition. This particular RS3 has some Iroz upgrades and is on ethanol.


      Up first if an E82 135i with some undisclosed upgrades. It's no match.

      Another BMW is up next this time an F13 M6. The RS3 jumps early but it really doesn't matter. Easy Audi win.

      The next two runs are with a stock Mustang GT350 which is just way out of its element. The Mustang needs some boost.

      Finally the RS3 gets some serious competition in the form of a C7 Z06 with undisclosed mods. The Z06 pulls the RS3 hard in each roll race. They go from a stop the Z06 spins as Z06's tend to do.

      Some dig races are up next starting with a 991.1 Porsche Turbo. The RS3 hits the limiter and loses. The 911 Turbo underestimates the RS3 and gives it the hit in the rematch which the RS3 easily wins. With an even start in the last run the 911 Turbo easily wins.

      The RS3 heads back to the highway for some more runs going up first against a blown Coyote. The Mustang misses a gear and that is that.

      The RS3 impresses with its real world performance.

        How do you know? They imply it's Iroz upgraded.

        its a stage 2 IROZ set-up, not a turbo upgrade. So tune, intake, downpipe, intercooler. The TCU is likely the OEM one as IROZ doesn't have a fully released TCU yet (hence why there are rev limiter issues).

        still, that set up on E60 fuel has shown to trap 130-132mph without a TCU, which on some video's has shown to increase the revs from the 6800rpm shift point closer to 7400-7600rpm and not bump into the rev limiter.

        Well very impressive performance on the stock turbo.
