Driver Motorsport’s B8 A4 K04 ECU Tuning Option Now Available!

Driver Motorsport is proud to present our B8 A4 K04 ECU Tuning Solution!

We found room in our busy development schedule for a re-visit of the B8 A4 platform. We were able to put the finishing touches on our B8 A4 K04 ECU Tuning Solution and provide updated file revisions for our original Stage 1 / 2 / 2+ calibrations.

 

We’ve already rolled this new software out for for testing with early adopters and thanks to our dealer in Malaysia we were able to verify this file produces the same results for our customers that we found in our internal testing. Mega Manic’s customer put up an impressive 307 horsepower & 420 Nm of torque at all 4 wheels! (Dyno Chart)

TTE420 ECU Tuning Development & LO400 File Updates!

Driver Motorsport is now in the process of TTE420 ECU Tuning Development!

TheTurboEngineers and their famed TTE420 has taken the VAG tuning scene by storm, creating a popular request from both our dealer network and customer base to provide a TTE420 ECU Tuning solution.

 

TTE420_RESIZED

Thanks to our Australian dealer Dub Addiction, we were able to get first hand experience with the TTE420 Turbo. Using our vast experience with K04 hybrid turbochargers and the data we’ve collected from the TTE420 we can confidently state the TTE420 is the best option available. The TTE420 has shown to be capable of delivering more air flow, while producing less backpressure and lower exhaust gas temperatures than it’s competitors we’ve worked with. Due to this, Driver Motorsport‘s future development with uprated VAG turbochargers will be done with TheTurboEngineers products.

 

In the process of developing the TTE420 file, we revisited our original LO400 calibration and applied the new techniques to enhance power output and features (Results below). We will continue to offer support for Loba Motorsport products such as the LO400 turbo, however in the future our development resources will be shifted over to TheTurboEngineer’s product line. For existing customers, both the TTE420 and LO400 turbo require separate files and a re-flash, they are not interchangeable.

 *Note – Dyno shown above is representative only of the Lo400 turbo, TTE420 dyno results are still forthcoming. Based off of preliminary data we expect the TTE420 file to exceed the output of the Lo400.*

Driver Motorsport’s New Online Home!

Volkswagen / Audi Tuning Specialist

Volkswagen / Audi Tuning Specialist

Our new website is here and brings forth the next chapter for Driver Motorsport, LLC.

Welcome to Driver Motorsport‘s new Blog. This is where new product releases will be announced, and where we will offer an inside look into Driver Motorsport and our growth as Volkswagen & Audi Tuning Specialist. As an enthusiast, I’ve always enjoyed looking at various blogs from other aftermarket automotive brands such as perrinperformance.com or dinancars.com. I firmly believe it is the best way to connect with our customer base, and to bring in fresh and entertaining content. We’ll use this blog to speak about technical topics, relevant news to our industry (Volkswagen / Audi Developments) and to release new products. One of us will be able to respond to comments or field questions, most likely it will be my brother or myself. Now, onto the details of the website…

In our first year of business we’ve grown immensely, we’ve more than doubled in our Volkswagen / Audi Tuning offerings, and have developed an international distribution network. Over time it become more and more apparent we outgrew what our old website had to offer. With the development of this website, our primary goal was to improve the customer experience and follow through with various suggestions we’ve been given (see – Tech Support). It is also bringing many new dimensions to our online home, such as -

Blog – The personal favorite is the Driver Motorsport Blog.

Technical Support Page – We set out to improve our customer experience by developing a Technical Support Page that will host installation documents, software for the newer Programmer and gives the customer the ability to send us an email directly off of this page. We plan to add our Vag-Com logging suggestions to this page as well.

Distributor Locator – The Distributor Page has an updated list of our distributors and now includes our international distributor network. We have included an online map, making it easy to search for local support for Driver Motorsport‘s products.

Media – This is still under construction. We’re currently organizing all videos/photos to put into appropriate sections and use as an archive to look back at us attending events and releasing new content going forward.

Driver Motorsport‘s Product Releases -

With the new website also comes many new and exciting software releases. We recently purchased a 2013 B8.5 A4 that we have used to developed Stage 1 & 2 Software as well as K04 software that is currently in development. Our TTRS Software is something newly released, as well as our planned development into offering a Loba Motorsport Lo500 Calibration. We’re also releasing software for the ROW market as well, which includes 1.8TSI and 1.4TSI software. We’re now one of the few in the world to offer Volkswagen / Audi tuning for the 1.4TSI engine found in Audi / Volkswagen vehicles Model Year 2013+.
