Audi S3 Stage 2 Upgrade: GIAC Tuning Software + CTS Turbo Components

psadmin Projects

How do you improve upon Audi’s best performing small sedan currently on the market? By adding over nearly 100HP and over 100TQ thats how! Our customer Andrew drove all the way from Tucson AZ, over 130 miles, to come to us for the full Stage 2 Performance Upgrade to his S3. Previously he had driven up for the Stage 1 GIAC Flash tune and we are happy to have him back for the rest of the performance modifications.

During this round of modifications the S3 received:

  • CTS Turbo High Flow Downpipe
  • CTS Turbo High Flow Inlet Pipe
  • CTS Turbo Front Mount Intercooler
  • CTS Turbo Cold Air Intake
  • GIAC Stage 2 ECU Software
  • GIAC Stage 2 DSG Software
  • RS3 Style Mesh Grill
  • Performance Slotted Brake Rotors
  • Hawk Performance Ceramic Brake Pads

All of these modifications combined will bring the power level of the S3 into the stratosphere, 395HP / 400TQ can be seen when running 100 octane race fuel and 380HP / 385TQ can be seen with regular 91 octane fuel. The fit and finish of the CTS Turbo components is unmatched at this price point, precision engineering from CTS makes installation of the components onto the S3 a treat allowing us to offer an incredible deal on the cost of installation. The CTS Turbo components work directly in conjunction with the incredible software from GIAC and completely transform the 2.0T. GIAC does a ludicrous amount of research in their performance software, they are never first to market with any of their tunes and deliver an unparalleled level of reliability and overall power. When upgrading your S3(or Golf R with DSG Transmission) to full Stage 2 we always recommend pairing the ECU Software Tune with the corresponding Stage 2 DSG Software. The transmission software optimises shift patterns, shorten shift times, and ups the launch control RPM for a much more brutal launch off the line, high 11 second quarter miles can be seen with this full Stage 2 setup.

In addition to the power adders, more braking performance is recommended when running this much additional HP, a set of Performance Slotted Rotors and Hawk Performance Ceramic Brake Pads were installed to all four corners. On top of the performance modifications a RS3 Style Mesh Grill was installed on the S3, giving the front end a much more aggressive look!
