In its standard version an Audi TT-RS develops a total of 340 HP. That’s good, but not very impressive for a sports coupe. And since there is always a place for better, Superchips has developed a new tuning package for the TT-RS that takes the small coupe to an impressive 401 HP.

In order to do that, Superchips installed their ‘plug and go’ kit on the car’s 2.5 liter 5-cylinder turbo engine, that increased the output to 401 HP and an impressive 551 NM, with 500 NM delivered between 2,500 and 5,700 rpm. However, despite this engine upgrade, the tuner decide to keep the top speed limited to 155 mph.

"Audi TT RS owners can also be reassured that the Superchips ECU remap delivers a minimal fuel consumption penalty. Indeed if driven in a ‘like for like’ manner with the standard car, owners will experience no fuel consumption penalty, despite the extra performance."

Isn’t the TT-RS a 4WD? How come the dynamic video shows only the front wheels spinning?

The problem the TT RS faces is that the price lands it in Corvette territory, and as good as this is, you would have to be a HUGE Audi fan, or just joining for a modern Ur-Quattro, to take this over a Corvette. The TT RS’s engine just can’t compete with the LS3, because it’ll probably make only 500 horses at most, while probably weighing close to what the LS3 does, due to its heavy iron block. Plus, the Quattro 4WD adds significant weight, and makes the TT RS heavier than the Corvette, too. Also, if you’re dead set on a German car, the M3 Coupe is just too good to say no to.

What are the characteristics to be classified as 4WD? Do you think having four wheels are not enough

The rear end look the goods, but the front is so bland it borders on boring.

Well, The tuner did a good job, and the result is pretty impressive. The engine has received an ignition timing tweak, as well as modified fueling and turbo boost parameters.

Aw, this was a really quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.
