GIAC proudly supports the German Performance Service and AWE Tuning with their Commute Monday Audi S4 3.0T!
GIAC has a long standing pedigree in racing, competing in World Challenge, Grand Am, Endurance, hill climb, VW cup, and various circuit track and endurance racing series around the world with great success. All while using various track weapons from a VW Polo, all the way up to a Porsche GT2 or Audi R8 V10 factory race car. When AWE Tuning and German Performance Service were interested in building a B8.5 Audi S4 race car, the crew here at GIAC was all in. If there is one thing that we know well, it is the 3.0T. Conveniently, this 2013 S4 is also an S-Tronic and can benefit from GIACs performance S-Tronic (DSG) software. The Stage 2 V2 S4 GIAC software packs the power customers expect from GIAC stage 2 products, but also adds some racing goodies like left foot braking.
In addition to GIAC software this vehicle is also outfitted with:

  • AWE Tuning Stage 2 Performance Pulley Kit with G.I.A.C. Stage 2 Software
  • AWE Tunings ColdFront Heat Exchanger System
  • AWE Tunings S-FLO Intake
  • SPC Control Arms
  • Pagid RS brake pads and fluid
  • Yokohama tires
  • H&R Springs
  • Ohlins dampers
