GIAC IS PROUD TO RELEASE ENGINE PERFORMANCE SOFTWARE FOR THE 400PS AUDI ® 8V RS3 ® !
GIAC performance programming adds a substantial power gain to the 400PS Audi ® 8V RS3 ® for MY 2017+. There are two GIAC stage 1 programs available. The GIAC Stage 1 Plus calibration will optimize fuel, timing and boost for a range of gasoline octane levels from 91 to 94 (r+m)/2 or 95 to 100 RON. A second stage 1 calibration, designed for E85, which optimizes fuel delivery, lambda, timing and boost to take advantage of the knock resistant and cooling values of E85. Both programs dramatically improve the performance of the RS3 with out the help of hardware upgrades.
The GIAC Stage 1 Plus increases peak horsepower by 45 HP and 81 ft-lbs on 91 octane, while adding 62 HP and 99 ft-lbs on 93 octane. Aside from the substantial peak to peak gains, the Stage 1 Plus program offers even greater gains in many parts of the rev range. The greatest torque gain in the power band can be found at 4300 rpm, where the program adds 91 ft-lbs on 91 octane and 107 ft-lbs on 93 octane over the OEM program. The horsepower improvement is 76 HP at 5,000 rpm on 91 octane and an average of 79HP from 4,100 rpm to 5,800 rpm on 93 octane.
The GIAC Stage 1 E85 program transforms the performance of the 8V RS3 2.5 liter turbo motor. The calibration, which is designed to run on E85, adds 110 HP and 111 ft-lbs of torque at the wheels over the OEM calibration on 91 octane. Engine estimates for this calibration using a correction factor of 1.15 yield of peak of 501 horsepower and 476 ft-lbs of torque. Massive power improvements can be found through out the rev-range with average gains of 125 ft-lbs of torque from 3,600 to 5,700 rpm and 129 HP from 5,000 to 6,300 rpm.
Special thanks to Pacific German for their feedback and help in the development process. Engine performance gains displayed in the figures and plots shown were calculated from raw wheel power data of OEM and GIAC programming tests on GIAC's four wheel Mustang Dyno with load and up to 75 mph air flow . A factor of 1.15 to account for parasitic losses was used to create the engine estimated curves. No additional upgrades were used during testing.
MSRP for this software is $900 USD. All supported 8V RS3 computers can be flashed over the OBD port by any GIAC dealer. For more information, contact your local GIAC dealer or send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
