Eurocode Tuning, located in Torrance, CA, specializes in Audi and Volkswagen tuning and service. It brought what it likes to call “The Boat:” a 2013 Audi S6. The ’13 S6 came equipped with a 4.0L V8 TFSI twin-turbo engine with APR software. While its list of aftermarket accessories was lighter than many of the other Tuner GP cars, its near stock platform proved potent.
Gregory Fowler, Eurocode Tuning representative said, “This 2013 S6 basically just has APR programming and a couple of small parts. My wife drives this car every day. It’s pretty quick but this is just a baseline for us – there is no expectation with the vehicle. It makes pretty substantial power and is quick in the quarter mile so we’ll see.”
Results of the dyno equated to 514hp and 558 lb-ft of torque. While the S6 may have been one of the biggest cars to compete, Eurocode placed very well in both the drag and road course competitions.
