Denso IKH24 Upgraded Spark Plugs – $100

A piece of art is only as good as its weakest element. The same is true for your Audi A4. One of the most common failure points is the factory spark plugs. Your first hardware modification should be upgrading to the Denso IKH24 plug. These plugs are designed to take the extra power and reliably deliver performance everyday. For best results, ensure that these are changed with every service. It might cost you a little bit more but remember this is not a Toyota Camry, this is a highly tuned performance hot hatch.

Luft-Technik Intake System – $899 [ES#3176165]

Now that we have handled the canvas and we have taken care of any common reliability issues, it’s time to start some more significant modifications. There aren’t many good intakes for the B9 but this one ticks all the boxes. A simple setup with a large pod filter and enclosure to seal the system away when the bonnet is closed. It offers the best balance of performance, sound and looks. The increased flow will improve the spool time of the turbo and allow for less restriction at the upper end of the rev range.

Easy Tune Level 2 Tuning Upgrade – $300

This upgrade will delete any engine lights or codes that have been triggered by the modifications thus far. It also optimises your software for these modifications and extracts that little bit of extra performance that couldn’t be done while your Audi A4 was stock. This is installed remotely and will take up the 3rd storage slot on your EasyTUNE handheld flasher.

Emmanuele Lowering Springs – $649 [ES#3218658]

So you have sorted out the performance and it sounds like an animal. You are up to your final stage, the handling. Most models left the factory with Audi’s adaptive suspension and driving modes so this can be a little tricky. With older models, coilovers offered the best performance while maintaining a relatively comfortable drive. With the addition of driving modes, there is no longer a need to replace the full assembly. A spring upgrade will allow the vehicle to achieve a significant drop in height (around 1.6”) without losing the driving mode functionality. This height change will improve body roll, cornering as well as improving traction on hard takeoffs. Oh and did we mention is looks damn cool?

Kumho V720 High Performance Tyres – Check with your local tyre outlet.

The final piece of the puzzle is getting everything to stick to the road. Now that you have more power and you can take corners more aggressively you will need to make sure your rubber is up to scratch. The factory tyres are designed to offer a balance of sound, traction and lifespan. At this point we know what you really care about, traction. Kumho has been in the tyre game for a long time and in our experience, the V720 offers the traction required to hold you down during the monstrous takeoff these things have and to safely take you around bends.
