Performance Section

How about a performance section? Performance questions are not easily categorized in the other sections and finds its way in to mulitple sections making it hard for one to search.

Both of these suggestions make sense to me.

'04 Audi S4 cabriolet, 6sp, 4.2 V8

This can be considered. Specifically what kinds of performance mods should be in such a forum? Mods by engine type are also possible, but keeping it organized tends to be a pain in the rear.

I think we can start simple and grow it as necessary with what seems to be popular. I agree that a section by engine type would be helpful. One for the gassers as most parts and concepts will be similar and then one for the TDI's. Then later on if necessary we can just add some stickys with links to popular old threads. One for Tubo's/Intercoolers, Injectors, Chips, Exhaust.

Similar as they have done here on this forum

IMHO, there are hardly any Touaregs out there that have had any kind of significant engine mods done to them, regardless of engine type. I can think of only one regular member on here that has performed an ABT supercharger install on his AXQ V8, and that pretty much covers it. For everyone else, it is just chip tuning, with the occassional ditching of the OEM suitcase muffler to something else. I can count on one hand stretching it to two of who has done the latter.

Not saying a performance section is not a good idea. In fact, it may help to inspire some movement .

The "Touareg Mods" section was added later on if I recall correctly? Perhaps the moderators can spend some time, go back in time, and move any older threads that contain mod related content from the general maintenance section, into the Touareg Mods section. I have seen quite a few threads that should be in the Touareg Mod section, but are instead floating elsewhere.

I agree. It might help get people moving in the right direction. As the price of these comes down and the tinkerers can start to afford them and they aren't worried about the factory warranty some amazing things might happen (W12 posted the other day!!!).

I just need to get mine running right and then I'll go on from there. I might be a little more content when I feel like I have more than my old 1.9L but until then I will continue to work on designing a performance upgrade. I pretty much have a Water/Meth design nailed down. I just need to find a good location to grab EGR. Why can't anyone make a nice OBD II plug in and digitial screen like the companies here in the US for the big trucks. They have products on the market before the truck is even sold. Ohh well. Hoepfully a performance section can get us moving in the right direction.
