When it comes to supercars, the Audi R8 is one of the most popular because it combines the best of luxury and performance without being insanely expensive compared to other supercars. In the back is the same 5.2L V10 that we’ve all come to know. This engine has been in production for quite a while, and Audi has done a pretty good job of squeezing power out it, but they left a little bit of performance on the table. This performance can be exposed with simple bolt-ons, but without a tune, the full potential of the engine can never be realized.
A tune optimizes the way the engine runs by changing parameters in the ECU. By advancing the ignition timing and just slightly leaning out the air/fuel ratio, plus many more changes, more power can easily be achieved while still keeping the engine happy and running safely. Our VR Tuned system is unique because it allows you to flash your ECU in the comfort on your own garage with the optional Cable Kit. For the Audi R8 V10 Plus, our tune takes it from 610 horsepower to 635 horsepower, and torque jumps from 413 ft-lbs to 431 ft-lbs. For a naturally aspirated engine, these gains are huge, and on top of the gains is greatly improved throttle response. Coming in around $2,000, there is really no better modification you can do to your Audi R8 that will yield those kinds of power gains.
