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!!

No Comments »’s Audi RS4 on 19×10″ Hartmann HP-310s

Posted on February 18, 2014 – 11:00 am

The Audi (B5) RS4′s factory widebody allows for an aggressive wheel fitment. While the Hartmann Wheel line-up likes to boast a sportier fitment over the factory inspired options, wheel width is somewhat limited from the Audi fitment Hartmann Wheel selection. However, H&R wheel adapters allow us to step out of the proverbial box and run wheels we would otherwise throw on the back of a Porsche 911 – 19×10″ Hartmann HP-310 Wheels.

The wheels are wrapped with 275/35 rubber while 20mm front and 30mm rear H&R wheel adapters allow the wheels to fit snug beneath those wide arches. There’s room to come out a bit more up front (with say, a 25mm adapter) but it was probably best to play it safe and not test fate by allowing tires to come into contact with obsolete fenders. What do you think of the new look on’s Audi RS4?

AKG Subframe Reinforcement Plates For BMW (E36/46) 3-Series

Posted on February 4, 2014 – 8:00 am

AKG Motorsport subframe reinforcement plates are available right here at Achtuning!  In fact, we’re installing a set on Rob’s BMW E46 M3 today. Stress cracks in this M3′s body are the unfortunate result of the rear subframe design that bolts it right into thin sheet metal and is a common problem for E36 (non M)/E46 3-series BMWs, especially when they get put through their paces. Our technician spotted the stress crack and brought it to Rob’s attention while it was here for a new oil level sender a couple of weeks ago.

Concerned about your E36 (non M) or E46 and how its shell has held up over time? Call us at ACHTUNING (425-895-0000) and schedule an inspection!

Achtuning and RWB Seattle

Posted on November 15, 2013 – 11:10 am

By now, the Rauh Welt Begriff (RWB) name has spread world-wide and we’d trust most of our followers have at least seen if not heard of an RWB Porsche 911. Akira Nakai of Chiba – suburb of Tokyo, Japan, is the “legend” behind the RWB name and world-wide traveler who creates, shapes, and molds these projects for Porsche owners daring enough to cut up a perfectly good 930, 964, or 993 Porsche 911 and take it to extreme levels.  We’ll spare you the history lesson as you can find a lot about the RWB builds online and immerse yourself in hours of entertainment and information if you haven’t already.  This is what we’re really excited about…

Achtuning has been given the honor and opportunity to play part in the first RWB Seattle build by supplying it’s owner with performance enhancements he’ll need to toss his RWB Porsche, named “Meguri Ai” by Nakai-san himself, around our local tracks! StopTech “Trophy” Big Brake calipers will find themselves behind a set of ridiculously deep-dished Work wheels while H&R RSS coil-overs with complimenting swaybars and Tarett Engineering adjustable end-links will keep things planted while the car is driven to it’s limits. We couldn’t be more excited about this very special, local project and eager to see Meguri Ai’s debut. Stay tuned!!
