Just because the world’s automakers are downsizing their engine opitions doesn’t mean that you have to settle for a lesser vehicle. Take the Audi S4 for example. The car started out as a wonderful bi-turbo V6, but then German automaker wanted to take the entry level sedan DTM racing, so they shoehorned a V8 in between the strut towers and sold to car to the public. The last generation RS4 was an even better car, with a 420 HP 4.2 Liter FSI engine and quattro all wheel drive system it was like an early R8 with the body on backwards. With tighter emissions and fuel consumption becoming more an more of an issue, the current generation S4 had been reduced back to a six cylinder with a blower sitting in the "v".

As an automotive consumer you do not have to settle for this, this is when you turn to the aftermarket, and the German tuning house, MTM is prepared to help you with a simple computer module that will take the 3.0 Liter TFSI engine from 328 HP all the way up to 424 HP without getting your hands dirty. The twisting force is raised from 324 lb-ft up to 379 lb-ft of torque and the upgraded S4 will sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in only 4.6 down from the standard car’s 5.2 second sprint. The modification will set you back 2491 Euro if you want to go to MTM directly, but we are sure for a few more they will figure out a way to raise the 155 MPH speed limiter.
