Lots more 2014 Audi diesels in North America

The Diesels are Coming - The Diesels are Coming

LLTeK offers plug 'n play chip tuning that increases this engine's output by 38HP (27%)  clik-clik

If you've travelled in Europe, you'll know that diesel rules. Now, Audi will be providing Turbocharged Direct Injection (TDI)  diesel options  for the 2014 A6, A7, A8, and Q5 in North America in large numbers. The Q7 SUV, Cayenne from Porsche, and Touareg from VW (all kissing cousins) have had the option on this side of the Atlantic for a number of years because the higher torque (also good for towing) on these heavier machines is an innate diesel feature.

Audi believes these machines will do well because consumers will recognise the economy (30% more efficient), because the the technology behind them is cleaner (emissions are lower) and because these new diesels are not the smelly, loud slugs they used to be. The TDI's have won at Le Mans!

However... these new diesels are probably not going to be bought by "tuning" enthusiasts, and we don't think these changes are going to affect us in any significant way. Despite the improvements, i.e. the acceptable (0-60) acceleration times that get commuters through the merge lane on the way to work, LLTeK's customers tend to lean towards track & speed sensibilities - and this rather rare group of individuals want machine that perform as good as they look.

If anything, LLTeK will  expand the information on our Audi chip tuning page to include the TDI diesels! Click on the picture above and see how you can make your car go faster.
