Willow Grove, PA -
AWE Tuning is proud to release the Stage 2 Performance Pulley Kit for 3.0T powered 2010 – 2012 Audi S4 and S5 models.
The AWE Tuning 3.0T Performance Pulley, coupled with special G.I.A.C. Stage 2 Performance Software was designed specifically to increase horsepower through increased boost pressure, without sacrificing reliability.
Through use of the smaller-than-stock AWE Tuning 3.0T Performance Pulley, the kit spins the 3.0Ts supercharger faster, creating more boost pressure while staying within the tested parameters of the unit. This increased boost pressure is used in conjunction with G.I.A.C. Stage 2 Performance Software to maximize the potential of the stock Eaton supercharger once coupled with the AWE Tuning 3.0T Performance Pulley.
The stock Audi ECU software directs a valve inside the supercharger to open, then waste (or “bleed off”) additional boost pressure. When the AWE Tuning 3.0T Performance Pulley is added, even more boost is created, as is the potential for even more bleed off. In steps G.I.A.C. Stage 2 Performance Software… preventing bleed off from happening by safely keeping the bypass valve closed, then optimizing ignition timing and air fuel ratios.
Highlights of the kit include:
- 488 crank horsepower on race fuel, 430 crank tq on race fuel
- Electrocoated black for factory appearance
- Precision ground for optimal fit on the supercharger snub
- Exclusive AWE Tuning 3.0T Pulley Removal Tool also available
- Developed in house at AWE Tuning and G.I.A.C.
