    • 6 speed manual E90 335i with JB4 vs. stock B8 Audi S4 manual

      This was quite interesting to see. BimmerBoost member BoostAddict ran a stock B8 S4 in his modified E90 335i with a 6 speed manual. His mod list is as follows: JB4 Map 1, DCI, and VK downpipes. He also had a 230 pound passenger. The 2011 S4 is a 6 speed manual that is completely stock. The runs were certainly closer than BoostAddict expected and the S4 performs well and clearly is a strong car. Looks like the 335 needs some race gas or meth, especially if the S4 owner decides to mod his ride.

        i actually watched the vids this time. i was on the phone before. log looks ok, your running 14 psi, with shift spikes of 15, notice how the throttle closes right there. timing could be better. id say get better gas, or a basic meth kit and you'll love your car like you never thought possible

        Something isn't right. I have to agree with LM here, a map 1 car with a 230 lbs passenger you might as well have ran him stock.

        Not surprising to see at all. B8 S4's are underrated from the factory as well, plus the added tq from the roots style blower will give it a broader tq curve vs a stockish 335i. They typically trap ~108-109 stock with a good driver.

        Ditch the passenger. An upgrade in software and try again. Stupid Audi.

        Wow front page, I'm honored lol. Anyway, the race was closer than I expected, but fun none the less. The S4 is strong car for sure. My buddy hasn't decided about mods yet. He already has a modded GTR that he tracks, and this was suppose to be his car he wouldn't touch anything on. I have a feeling he may get a reflash soon as I told him about the gain of the APR stage 2.

        230 pounds makes a big difference

        That would actually make for a very interesting thread provided he posts details of all the bull$#@! he went through.
