Every car is slightly differnet. There is no 'master tune'. Each one needs to be done specific to their cars. Temps, elevations, humidity all play roles. Don't they come with a 'Diablo Tune' for 93 gas? I'd use that.

The A4 is where you are going to see the biggest changes though. Play with your shift pressure and disable the 4->1 downshift while you are there. It breaks the tires loose sometimes when your brake hard. Not sure if you can disable some of the torque management with handheds or not. But if you mess with any of this, make sure you do a fluid/filter swap with some good fluid as well. Maybe even consider looking into trans coolers as well. I'm probally just being over cautious but its better then killing a trans.

I noticed the 4 to 1 downshift when I was driving Julies A4 before she sold it. It was cruising very good, hit a turn really sharp and hit the brakes hard, I noticed a very harsh downshift and the rear end broke lose. Almost lost it to be honest. I belive it was the 4 to 1 shift.

Thanks for the help. I am very pleased with the tunner. before the tunner with my auto tranny. I could hold the brake and floor the gas and it would only rev to 1500 rpm with out spinning the tires. I tried it with the stock preformance tune and I power braked through 2nd, let out the brake and layed a 20 footer dual black on the pavement through 3rd. Nice to lite em up finally......
