Litchfield are able to OBD tune the brilliant Audi R8 V10 on both Standard (540 PS / 532 BHP) and Plus Model (610 PS / 602 BHP). The great news is that we can take both versions to a significant 630 PS / 622 BHP when coupled with a high quality exhaust system.
The gains are most startling on the standard R8 V10 non-Plus model; our development car produced initial figures of 523 PS / 516 BHP on 99 octane fuel, which took its real-world gains for Stage 2 to over 100 BHP!
Stage 1 - 610 PS / 600 BHP
After significant work on the dyno and road, we have created a calibration for the R8 V10, which provides your car with a significant performance lift without sacrificing the driveability and smooth nature of the V10 engine.
Our Stage 1 upgrade will provide a large, safe power increase for the 540 PS / 533 BHP standard V10 model to around 610 PS / 600 BHP.
We are still evaluating the increases on the Plus model, with its different exhaust and larger intake, but we would expect another 15-20 BHP over standard with improved torque throughout the rev range.
OBD programming through the on-board diagnostic port means we can easily tune, or revert the ECUs back to standard, without having to remove them from the vehicle.
Stage 2 - 630 PS / 622 BHP
Stage 2 utilises a high-flow replacement exhaust system from either Remus or Akrapovic. Both exhaust systems utilise the standard on-board electronics to vacuum control the integrated valves. A further remap allows us the use the better flow of the exhaust system to give the full 630 PS / 622 BHP on the standard V10.
We would not necessarily expect much of a power gain over Stage 1 on the plus model as it already has a different exhaust. However the sound (when the valves are open) will be significantly enhanced. The Remus or Akrapovic exhaust are available as mail order items and, due to the complexity of the R8, take 12 hours to fit.
