Quarter Mile: Conquered.
As Audi switched from their high-revving, 4.2-liter V-8 engines found in the B7-generation S4s, many were disappointed as there’s nothing like a roaring German V-8. However, those feelings were quickly replaced with excitement due to the tuning potential held by the supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 that now powers the current B8-generation Audi S4. AWE Customer Jeff Jones certainly must be, at least and has the world records to back it up.
Equipped with an AWE Tuning Power Package, Jones was able to set a new 1/4-mile world record for B8 Audi S4s at St. Thomas Raceway Park in Ontario, Canada.
The 3.0T that powers the Audi S4 is more than capable of putting down more than its factory 333 horsepower and 325 lb-ft. of torque thanks to the supercharger that sits on top. Jeff Jones had more than your average upgrades going on in his S4 thanks to AWE Tuning.
The AWE Tuning team installed their own AWE Stage 2 Performance Pulley kit that utilizes a G.I.A.C. Stage 2 Pulley Software program; an S4 3.0T Touring Edition Exhaust; a set of 3.0T Resonated Downpipes; G.I.A.C. S-Tronic transmission software; and ColdFront System with heat exchanger, reservoir, and coolant pump. All those are good for three-figure gains and also good enough to grab some world records.
On October 4th, Jones was able to set new World Records with his upgraded B8 Audi S4. “My best pass was my last pass of the day, this was after 10+ consecutive passes. I can’t stress enough how much the AWE Tuning ColdFront™ System helps, everyone kept saying ‘you’re heat soaked, you’re heat soaked,’ then… BAM 11.610!” said Jeff Jones, commenting upon the AWE Tuning ColdFront™ System. “I’ve been using the AWE Tuning/GIAC Stage II upgrade for almost 20,000 miles. Not only is it extremely powerful, but has also proven extremely reliable, and enjoyable year round.”
These upgrades from AWE Tuning were able to allow Jones to record an impressive, record-setting 11.6108-second 1/4–mile time with a 119.12 mph trap speed. Both of those World Records were supplemented with a record-setting 7.4671-second 1/8-mile elapsed time and 1.6042-second 60-foot acceleration time (set in a separate run).
Don’t expect those newly-set world records to last long, and you can bet that Jeff Jones will be back at it with the help of AWE Tuning to go even faster with his Audi S4.
