    So i had the new turbo installed, runs great decided to test gas mileage...this was a 27 mile highway drive in Sport mode which uses more aggressive gearing then using the regular Drive mode. i took the picture right off the exit at the red light.

    Pretty good results and definitely could hit 30mpg on a longer trip and even higher using D mode

    in almost all cases, Bigger turbo = more rpm of lag (out of boost fuel tables) = better mileage

    And i assure you that sport mode doesn't change your gearing at all :) Just changes the throttle tip in and lets it rev all the way up before shiifting.

    'S' mode = DSP or Dynamic Shift Program. Changes shift points, clutch pressures and downshifting.

    Worked on a 2007 2.0T with a K04 and an APR tune and that car could easily smoke a B6/B7 V8 S4.

    nah, i called APR directly and asked them if the Stage 1 + Flash works with a K04 turbo and they said i would be absolutely fine. Plus i'm staying out of boost anyway how do you think I'm getting 29mpg. With gas prices so fucking high I've been driving like grandma. I went form 270miles per tank to 330 just changing my driving habbits

    At least your gas mileage indicator doesnt lie to you like the one in a chevy volt.
