That's a heap ton of information Lol ! Jk !

But I really like these things.. Really gotta see how that cutout in the headliner looks like though. I just have to physically see one to be honest. That 354hp engine sounds mighty nice though. When should they be here ?

I just really hope that even getting 10-15% more power out of that 2.0L is still within a safe threshold since if I go the 2.0L route, getting that extra bit of power might be what I need. All depending on what the stock power output feels like being put down and how its distributed.

I'm pretty sure utilizing something from APR can get you that quite easily. With the Gen 3 2.0, they were able to get 75hp and 104lb-ft of torque.

Those power gains paired with and air intake and even an axle back exhaust will be ideal. Only downside is those are likely to void warranty. On that note anyone planning to go to an independent shop that specializes in Audi's?

Definitely, those combined and your getting some serious power gains. But as soon as you tune, that's a voided warranty right off the bat. I'll probably be checking out some reputable tuners in my area first and maybe taking their input on it and going forward from there. How about you??
