How can I get more power out of my V8S5?

So I just recently bought a used B8 S5.. got it with 58,000 miles for 20 grand and is by far my biggest purchase yet (I’m 21 don’t hate lol) first things first it’s burning through coolant right off the bat after 7 days of owning it but that’s besides the point. I’m seeing that getting a tune and new exhaust and cold air intake really won’t do much and I need a turbo or super charger. Is there really no way to get it to 400-450 WHP without turbo , super charger or NOS? I feel disappointed as if I purchased the wrong car:confused:

But as Mr Fergus says this is really not the correct car for tuning mate. Any big engine which is normally aspirated can only be given marginal power boosts for a substantial amount of money. That V8 has 350 plus horses from new and you really need to bring her back up as far as you can towards that figure. If its a bigger bang you want then you are better off selling and try the V6 S5 cos she is turbo........
