AWE TUNING, G.I.A.C. RELEASE 3.0T PULLEY KIT FOR B8.5 S4/S5 S-TRONIC MODELS, FIRST TO MARKET
Willow Grove, PA
June 13, 2013
AWE Tuning is proud to release the Stage 2 Performance Pulley Kit for 3.0T powered 2013+ Audi S4 and S5 B8.5 chassis models equipped with the S-Tronic transmission.
The AWE Tuning B8.5 3.0T Performance Pulley kit which uses G.I.A.C. Stage 2 Pulley Software builds upon techniques used on the B8 version of the kit to increase horsepower through increased boost pressure, without sacrificing reliability. This kit is the first of its kind available commercially on the B8.5 platform.
“The success of the AWE Tuning Stage 2 Performance Pulley Kit warranted the prioritization of porting this software to the B8.5 chassis vehicles, which have a new Engine Control Unit. This meant that G.I.A.C. and AWE Tuning needed to essentially treat this like a new product,” stated AWE Tuning VP of Marketing, Jesse Kramer.
