MRC stage 2

New user to A5oc but I've been reading all of your guys posts for last 2 months! Recently became a owner of an Audi S5 2015, bought from Harold wood Audi with only 7k on the clock! Coming up to 2 months of owner ship now and I'm in love with the car!
Since owning the car I got the front bonnet bumper wings, mirrors and A pillars in pfp (plastic film protection) to protect from all stone chips! Lowered on h and r springs, 15 front and 20mm spacers, tinted front windows, and wrapped the roof in black to match the sunroof. Also changed front grill to an OEM rs5 grill which I bought from Audi and my pals down at GVE in Uxbridge installed it for me. Cars been great and looks stunning for me.
Next Tuesday I'm going down to MRC tuning for a stage 2 remap with the stronic remap too, looking forward to that and then on Wednesday to Russel automotive for a milltek cat back exhaust!

Excited excited excited!???

Will update !

Great looking car? Check. Already modding? Check. Posted pix without being hounded to do so? Check. Crazy in love with the car? Check. Suddenly thinking about selling members of your immediate family to obtain funds for further mods? Unknown, but a probable Check!
Yep, sounds like the perfect A5OC forum member profile to me. Welcome aboard, Ajay.

Great looking car. Too low for me - but then I'm old and can no longer put up with worrying about the height of speed bumps!

The MRC tune is rather good...

Thanks man, really have trouble getting through to them! Was wondering if they would have milteks in stock and be able to put on exhaust tomorow as well as the stage 2 and would save me going to the other place on wednesday

Car successfully remapped with 477 bhp and 570nm torque! Feels amazing so fun and the s tronic remap is so good! Pushing the car to that red feeling the extra pulls is amazing, and it's true it just keeps going up up up in speed! Got my proud mrc badge on back too!

Race version has non-resonated rear section.

Millteks are up there. Depends on if you want loud or not as there are other options.

I know exactly how you feel!

Sorry to be pedantic but it is 477 PS peak, which is about 470 bhp. It's nice to see an MRC dyno starting at less than 1500rpm. Comparing that torque curve to those of turbo cars clearly demonstrates the advantage of the supercharger!

Yup. Having recently become more interested in this Audi seem to tune their cars for a flat torque to ~5000-5200 and then start dropping torque to give constant hp. Have seen this on a few cars (including mine) now and also on the attached which is off the new S5/RS5 (nicked from another forum).

I've noticed a funny thing though, all has been good and well but whilst driving I've realized that sometimes like in around gear 3 if I floor the car pedal all the way down to the floor, in auto s mode, the car will go all the way to 7000 revs but not change gear, it will just drop my revs to 5000 and stabilize there for a second before I can change gear? Strange??? I've been reading up and sure it's not a slipping clutch but might be torque converter locking?????

Ideas?

Note quite. The 'plateau' is because the wastegate(s) open(s). The fall in torque at the high end is simply the limit of gas flow due to turbo size vs engine capacity: As the engine revs higher it sucks more air but the turbo can't keep up and so the boost drops.

Well its not the torque converter locking because you don't have one - the DL501 is a dual wet clutch gearbox. However what you describe doesn't seem right (and mine has not done that) so I think you ought to get it checked.

But my stock S5 exhibited exactly the same behaviour on a stock tune....
