The Futrell Autowerks Team takes you through the installation of APR's Stage III Supercharger kit and FSI Carbon Clean on a 2007 Audi RS4. Actual installation time with carbon clean was about 25 hours. APR's engineering and design team hit a home run out of the park with this kit, the installation went off without a hitch and the power delivery is ultra smooth and blistering fast. Kit price $14,999, Installation is $2999 which includes before/after Dyno testing and a twelve month/12,000 mile parts and labor warranty. Clutch upgrade and carbon clean are additional and both recommended. Find us on Facebook at http://facebook.com/futrellautowerks. This video is part of a playlist that includes before and after Dyno results so be sure to check out our other build series videos.

We were able to make our first pass at 12:08 in the afternoon with the
density altitude (DA) sitting at -392.8 ft and steadily rising till around
3PM where it began falling again. We started with our local 93 octane fuel
and 93 octane software and began practicing our launches. After 3 attempts
we were hitting 1.7x 60' times and were passing the quarter mile mark at
11.2x seconds at 122-123 MPH. The car was very consistent producing 6
passes in a row in the 11.1 and 11.2 range, including hot lapped passes
(meaning running down the strip, coming back and running again with no cool
On 93 octane with our 93 octane software our best ET the day was
firstname.lastname@example.org with a 1.654 60 FT time and a DA of only -42.2 feet! Our best
trap speed of the day was with an email@example.com MPH with a 1.772 60 FT and
a DA of -58.1 feet.
Around 4 PM we switched over to 100 octane to get in a few passes.
Unfortunately the daylight was dropping and the track informed us we could
only run till it was dark. We only had time to run several passes on 100
octane with very little cool down time between each run. Never the less, on
100 octane our best ET and trap speed was on our second pass, only several
minutes after the previous run and was firstname.lastname@example.org with a less than
stellar 1.802 60 FT and a DA of -155.5 ft.
Overall we were very impressed with performance given this was our first
attempt in the RS4. The DA on our record 93 octane passes was very close to
0 feet and we believe with a lower DA, the times could drop. Likewise, with
an improved 60 foot time, we believe a 10 second pass is achievable on
street tires and full weight, possibly even on 93 octane. We unfortunately
do not have any data for a full high flow Exhaust system and other common modifications
popular to the RS4 community, but hope to see results from our customers
who've upgraded further!
That brings us to the fun part!
After only a few passes on 100 octane, we decided it was time to have fun
before the track closed. We jacked the car up, drained the fuel, threw in
104 octane, installed our 104 octane software, removed the passenger and
back seat, installed drag slicks, and removed the factory catback Exhaust for even more weight savings.
We fired up the RS4 and it was beastly! Everyone at the track crowded
around to make sense of this snarling Audi in the heart of American muscle
We had less than an hour to get in a few passes before the track closed.
The first run broke into the 10 with our top trap speed of the day at
131.67 MPH, but we knew it had more in it. On the next run we did a massive
burn out and heated up the tires and were able to hit a 1.49 60 ft time,
but a missed shift resulted in only a 10.7@130 pass. Eric pulled the car
around, let it cool for a second and headed right back out. The next pull
was his best pass of the evening, setting a email@example.com pass with a 1.500
60 FT time and a DA of -528.2 as the sun was dropping. We were so close to
10.5's but there wasn't enough time to get in many more passes with any
decent cool down time between. We were able to run 3 more passes several
minutes apart and cut 10.6's on each one with trap speeds ranging from

ECS Tuning: APR 3.0 TFSI Stage 2+ Supercharger Pulley Upgrade Kit DIY
Available at: http://www.ecstuning.com/ES2214953/?utm_source=Youtube
APR likes to be pioneers in the automotive world and that shows with this
new Supercharger Pulley Upgrade, a world
first for the 3.0 TFSI motor. This part requires you to have the Stage 1
upgrade before you can upgrade to the pulley with Stage 2. What's the
reason for this you might be asking?
Without recalibrating the ECU found in your vehicle, pulley upgrades offer
no advantage, as the Supercharger will
simply bypass Boost pressure. Yet,
with the upgrade, they are able to develop new hardware and calibrate the
ECU to work properly as if it was intended by the factory.
When you upgrade the ECU, many expect a massive increase in torque, but
that simply isn't the case with these new supercharged motors. The ECU
upgrade offers up more power, but if you want insane amounts of torque,
this new Supercharger Pulley Upgrade is
for you. The gain in torque is felt immediately, but the results are
present from beginning to end adding up to 80ft-lbs and 108 horsepower at all four

With factory like smoothness and drivability APR's ECU / Pulley Upgrade

Audi Supercharger Technology
Alongside Exhaust gas turbochargers, Audi also makes use of Superchargers to Boost its engines. A Supercharger is used in the 3.0 TFSI. The
high-efficiency mechanical charger is situated in the 90-degree V formed by
the cylinder banks and is driven by the engine via a poly-V belt. The gas
pathways downstream of the charger are very short, thus the torque develops
quickly and easily. The full Boost
is available even at idle.
