I live on a hill in a city which is 2,600 meters above sea level (in south America). On my way home, I have to stop in order to cross a road. This stop is on a pretty hefty hill and thus I need to push full throttle to cross quickly in order to ensure that I cross before another car comes by the intersection as the other route has priority. However, when pushing the pedal hard on my 2003 1.8 T A4, I find that it does not move for like 2 – 3 seconds, and then it only pulls away when it reaches aprox., 2,800 rpm, which means that I really struggle when crossing the crossroad. Is there any way in which I can substantially increase the immediate response of my A4?

Thanks in advance for your kind help.

Tom

Thanks for your help. I have the multitronic version. I believe 5 speed manual would not have this problem as you could rev up the engine to ensure that the turbo would kick in, thus picking up the speed immediatelly, but I might be wrong.

Right and wrong.... it probably is the multitronic getting going.. but there is always something you can do <_<

Neuspeed makes a transmission chip for the multitronic which will increase take off power, as well as give your transmission more agressive shifting.
