• 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.

        map1 on the jb4 and this boost level should net around 320-330whp on a healthy car...stock B8 S4 according to APR puts down 327awhp/327awtq (http://www.goapr.com/products/ecu_up...tfsi_b8s4.html) So not a surprise at all that they were this even, not sure where the surprise is?B8 S4 3.0TFSI engine is great...just would never get the Audi DCT...maybe the new ones have improved, not sure, but the previous generation SUCKED ass!

        The surprise being the 335 is tuned and the Audi is stock and a manual. Also, this 335 is RWD not AWD...

        Absolutely, the S4 deserves far more credit than it gets.
