How fast is your Audi A5? Beyond a doubt, it’s very fast. But if you’re one of the adrenaline junkies with high-octane fuel running through your veins, your answer would be “can be faster”. And yes, it can! With the right high-performance parts and accessories, you can beat Audi’s announced 0-60 miles-per-hour time without compromising your driving safety and comfort. Here is a list of Audi A5 performance parts and accessories you should consider purchasing to take your driving experience to a new level.

1. Performance air intakes and filters
Probably the easiest-to-install car modification, replacing your stock air filter with a high-performance one is also the simplest way to increase your engine’s performance and horsepower. High-performance air intake systems and filters are less restrictive to the airflow than stock ones, resulting in less power waste for each induction stroke.

2. Performance catalytic converters
Your catalytic converter does an essential job, reducing the amount of harmful elements in the reaction gasses before they leave the car. At the same time, it restricts the exhaust flow, causing your engine to waste some of its power to push the gasses out. Replacing your stock cat with a high-flow catalytic converter can reduce that impact while staying within the legal boundaries of Federal standards, excluding California and New York.

3. Performance spark plugs and coils
Unless you drive a diesel-powered A5, to keep the combustion process running, your engine needs fuel, air, and a spark to ignite the air-fuel mixture. The latter is the responsibility of your spark plugs and ignition coils, whose poor condition and performance can dramatically affect the engine's performance. That’s why it is always a good idea to install high-performance coils and spark plugs, for example, iridium ones, to avoid misfires and loss of power.

4. Performance suspension parts
Your stock suspension is configured for a comfortable ride. It is good for everyday street driving, but when you’re on the track, you want your suspension to be tighter and stiffer, which allows for minimizing body roll at high speeds and makes steering sharper and more predictable on corners. And this is when performance suspension parts like coil-over kits and sway bars come into play.

5. Performance tuners and chips
Everything from ignition timing to fuel injection in your Audi A5 is operated and controlled by an electronic control unit. By overriding its settings, which are mostly aimed at maintaining your vehicle’s drivability and efficiency, you can increase your horsepower and torque or reduce your fuel consumption. A quality performance tuner or chip will make intelligent variations to the critical engine parameters, like ignition timing and fuel cut, in order to increase its horsepower and torque.

6. Performance brakes
Safety should always be your number one concern and priority. Before turning your Audi into a new record-breaker, make sure to upgrade its brake system with ventilated and slotted brake rotors and high-performance brake pads to feel safe and confident on the road.

All listed above high-performance parts and accessories, together with dozens of other automotive products for your Audi A5, you’ll find on the Truck&Gear website. We carry hundreds of first-class products to suit any needs and budget.
