AutoBild Magazine: StopTech Big Brakes Are The Best

Posted on February 11, 2015 – 9:00 am

In the December 2014 issue of AutoBild Magazine, the editors rounded up several big brake kits from some of the biggest names in aftermarket braking – Brembo, AP Racing, Performance Friction, K-Sport and StopTech – to compare head-to-head.

As a test subject, the magazine chose a modified BMW M3 that was put through a series of identical tests with each BBK to determine which brake system gave the best overall performance when judged on objective and subjective criteria. The judges looked at braking distances, fade and feel among other things.

As a benchmark, AutoBild used the BMW factory “M” brakes that come stock on the car. Not surprisingly, all of the aftermarket brakes scored much better than the BMW units, except one. The Brembo system finished just behind the BMW brakes, with what the judges felt was a combination of poor performance and poor feel. At the other end of the finishing order, StopTech was named the overall winner, after scoring a perfect 5 out of 5 in every single category!

“No weaknesses came to light during the installation,” according to the editors. “On the contrary – the caliper features a cover that can be opened for the easy removal of brake pads.”

Other areas of praise were the system’s lower weight, shorter stopping distances and fade-free performance – not to mention the lower price compared to the Brembo and PFC systems. You can read the whole English translation of the article here.

VW CC: AWE Tuning Dual Tip Conversion

Posted on July 24, 2014 – 1:00 pm

Featuring a straight through resonator combined with a specially tuned Helmholtz resonator, AWE Tuning’s VW CC 2.0T “Touring Edition” Exhaust has a velvety smooth European tone that is civil under part throttle yet produces an aggressive note at full throttle – the best of both worlds. The system we selected and recently installed on our own VW CC is their newest dual outlet version with single black-diamond tips on each side of the rear valence. Including all hangers, clamps, bolts and paste to ensure a simple installation this system is truly a bolt-on system once you’ve converted to the 3.6L’s rear valence also available right here at Achtuning!

Necessary Carbon Cleaning

Posted on June 23, 2014 – 10:00 am

A long over-due carbon cleaning service was performed on our Volkswagen CC last Friday.

As you may (or may not) know our direct injected engines suffer from carbon build-up on the intake valves. Over time this build-up begins to have an effect on the performance of your engine, resulting in a rough idle, possible engine start issues, and ultimately robbing you of power. We recommend our customers have their intake valves cleaned every 30-35K miles. We (probably shouldn’t have) waited until 70K…


With the service complete the CC purrs now at start-up and power levels are up where they should be with immediate (and smooth) throttle response! If you haven’t yet, give us a call at 425-895-0000 and REVIVE your direct injection engine with a carbon clean service at Achtuning!

Karl’s APR “Stage 3+” Audi RS4

Posted on March 31, 2014 – 9:00 am

Karl already brought us his Audi (B7) RS4 once to have an APR “Stage 3″ supercharger kit installed. But when APR recently released their new “Stage 3+” kit featuring a bigger (Eaton TVS1740) blower, Karl had to have it! So, back “under the knife” his RS4 went for yet another heart transplant as we pulled out the not-even-year-old “Stage 3″ (Eaton TVS1320) supercharger, transforming this car again but from monster to BEAST!

The APR Stage III+ TVS1740 Supercharger System fills the void by adding an average of roughly 40% more horsepower and torque across the entire power band. The results are nothing short of amazing; taking the RS4 from 414 horsepower stock to 626 horsepower on pump fuel and 688 on race fuel without breaking a sweat! With more than 500 FT-LBS on tap thanks to the TVS1740’s positive displacement supercharger expect instant acceleration with absolutely no lag commonly associated with other forms of forced induction.

To better handle this new found power we looked to Southbend Performance who sent us a “Stage 3 Endurance” kit from their DXD Racing Clutch product line, rated to handle torque levels upwards of 665 ft/lb. And since Karl is consistently putting his RS4 through its paces on the track, new SPC X-Axis control bushings were installed to help remove any deflection and movement within the previously installed SPC adjustable control arms.

Fulfilling both daily driving as well as weekend track duties for Karl, it was important to maintain reliability and drive-ability. We have no doubt this RS4 will perform and exceed Karl’s expectations. APR is consistent by providing the best of both worlds offering quality and performance without compromise. When you’re ready to take your Audi RS4 to that next level, don’t hesitate to bring it to Achtuning – your Pacific Northwest #1 resource for all things APR!!
