Hey everyone, just wanted to say hey to y'all.

And also post a question.

This may have been covered in a different thread already but I'm new so I haven't gotten the navigation down pat yet.

I recently purchased a 2000 A4 Quattro, the dealership didn't know much about the car, everything seems to run fine with the car except I have to go to my nearest Audi dealership to get my sludge issue taken care of.

Now the question, I did some research and found that my car (which has the manual transmission) is supposed to do 0-60 in the high 7's. I just timed it and it's closer to 6.3

Any ideas of why it would be doing it that fast? Maybe and APR tune to the ECU? The turbo appears to be stock, however it is nice and loud when it spools up.

Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Congrats on the purchase!

The easiest way to tell if its chipped is to see what kind of boost its making.

Either through VAG COM or install a boost gauge.

Let me know if you have any questions.
