The Audi A3’s fastest model is called the RS3 and it is blazing! To ensure that the RS3 differs from the RS4, Audi included a power set that gets 340 HP and over 330 pound feet of torque. At ZIPtuning, we can get the RS3 back toward the efficiency of the RS4 with a new exhaust system and the optimization of the engine.
The direct-injected 2.5-liter TFSI engine in the RS3 is made of lightweight Vermicular Graphite Cast Iron (a strong material related to carbon fiber). This provides a lightweight engine at about 400 pounds that can prove beneficial to the car’s handling. The 2.5-liter turbocharged engine code CEPA is also found in the Audi TT RS. The five-cylinder engine can produce standard numbers of 5,400 rpm to 6,700 rpm. It gets the top torque output of 330 pound feet from 1,600 RPM.
After weeks of research, development, and testing, our engineers have succeeded in tuning the RS3 for complete optimization. Just improving the engine yielded top outputs of 400 HP and over 440 pound feet of torque. Adding Milltek exhaust system increases that output to 420 HP and over 470 pound feet of torque. You’ll get a nice five-cylinder rumble along with an increase in acceleration. The Quattro drive and the extra horses combine to provide an unparalleled and noticeable difference in speed and power. After our optimization of the RS3, you’ll see performance and power that rivals any Ferrari! So take it out for a spin on the German autobahn!
