Man thats just too funny. Just wait untill EV's become so common that the aftermarket comes up with tunes, high performance batteries, and who knows what for them, its going to be like tricking out a Traxxis. 🤣

To the OP... You're going to spend way more money upgrading that 2.0. My suggestion is just buy a 3.8 track or ultimate. It really doesn't need anything and it's very capable. You'll spend less and get more. Just MHO. I have a '13 track 3.8 and don't regret my purchase one bit.

So, no, not sarcasm, just fair warning from the link you posted.

So, if you want a 300ish hp car that's not a whole bunch of trouble I'd say you're ok with a mostly stock BK2 3.8. Sounds good, nice inside, and with some chassis and suspension mods that won't fry state inspections, you have a pretty fun(if a bit portly) whip. Plenty of exhausts, can squeeze a bit more out of the V6 with a tune, keep the tires reasonable and you can get decent mileage... What's not to love?

BTW, B6-B7 S4s are a whole lotta fun. But they aren't canyon carvers, and they aren't nice at the gas pump. Also, their maint. tends to be a wallet serial killer. B8 is a nice car, but it's kinda gone soft at that point.
Lol Thats what I've been hearing from most is that Audis can be wallet busters.
The one I'm looking at at the moment is a B8. This one has been modified with some good mods and from what I've gathered its been maintained really well.

My daily is an '18 S5 and with the 3.0 twin scroll turbo power plant its quite peppy with no turbo lag (due to twin scroll, new for 2018). Oh, bad thing is it only comes as an AT.

I am not a fan of the WRX either but it fit your 300hp turbo wants.
Well Audis are new to me but I would be doing all my own work if possible. I did hear some bad things about the AT and luckily this is a 6 speed B8 that I'm looking at. High on miles but maintained perfectly. Only thing needed is some new control arm bushings. He's changed all fluids last year, coolant piping and thermostat. The water pump wasn't changed as the as he was told by the dealership that it was fine. Still on stock clutch but he said it still grabs hard in high rpms in the lower gears. I've heard back and forth info on the timing chain as far as replacement but he said it was inspected and is working fine.

Well I can get this particular 2.0 rspec for 10k. Intake, tbe and stage 2 tune puts me in 3.8 territory for power. I am missing out on navigation and the sunroof but an aftermarket unit I can add and the sunroof I can live without. Don’t get me wrong I’d love a 3.8 but since the car is sort of an in between car for me I’m looking to go as cheap as possible without sacrificing too much.

Fully relatable lol

I toyed with the idea of older RS4s and newer S4s but I just can't justify dropping the GC Track right yet, still lots of life in her (until the bottom end gives out, which could be tomorrow for all I know...)

little more power in either Audi, but the old V8 RS4 has EXPENSIVE ENGINE SHITE that I'm not willing to get into, and the more recent S4s aren't really head turners..... My old 2010 still gets gawked at.

There's no good cars anymore

"There's no good cars anymore'

Theres truth in that statement, at least nothing particularly desirable a reasonable price. I really have to give Hyundai credit for making the coupe at all, too bad it didn't sell better.

I agree. I like the 2010 S4 better than the newer ones. There really is no good looking cars that are fairly affordable.
