Already available: New power for the new Audi Q8
DTE Systems has it: Engine and gas pedal tuning for the Audi Q8 via app
Now Audi has also launched an SUV coupe: The Q8 is a premium SUV with an overall length of 4.99 meters and a width of two meters. So far, Audi's new flagship is only available with one engine in Europe. The 50 (3.0) TDI produces 286 hp and 600 Nm in series production. In the current trade press, however, this is described as not very sovereign - including a delayed response. DTE Systems has now developed solutions for engine optimization and gas pedal response in the Q8, which can noticeably improve the driving characteristics.

This is how the startup weakness is corrected
The new Audi Q8 is based on the same MLB platform as the Bentley Bentayga, Lamborghini Urus, VW Touareg III, Audi Q7 or Porsche Cayenne. With a massive 2,220 kg curb weight and the slight starting weakness described in tests, the Audi Q8 is an ideal candidate for engine optimization and gas pedal tuning. DTE Systems now offers for the first time an engine performance enhancement PowerControl RX for the Q8, which is already used in a similar way in the Audi A8. The PowerControl RX tuning box from DTE Systems is a performance upgrade for high-horsepower vehicles. Following vehicle-specific development work, the box is now being installed in the Audi Q8. "Directly after installation, the increased torque in particular is immediately noticeable, ideal for confident overtaking and optimized long-distance performance," explains Detlef Strube, Head of Development at DTE Systems. With an increase in peak power of 36 hp and 69 Nm of torque, the Audi Q8 is now also significantly more powerful and agile in figures.
Perfromance increase with app control for Audi Q8
In addition to a performance boost, the tuning from DTE Systems also includes the PowerControl app. In addition to the selection of the three tuning programs "Sport", "Dynamic" and "Efficiency", the smartphone control also offers the innovative sport instruments, which display the current performance data such as turbo and boost pressure as well as engine speed in real time. In addition, the app offers an accelerometer as well as a configurable warm-up timer, where the driver himself determines when the tuning kicks in.
Better acceleration, easy installation: PedalBox in the Audi Q8
As standard, the new Audi Q8 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds - but not without deceleration. For optimized throttle response, DTE Systems offers the PedalBox, a tuning that shortens the response of the accelerator pedal and thus improves acceleration by up to 10%. The PedalBox thereby has the three driving programs "City", "Sport" and "Sport Plus", which in turn can fine-tune the accelerator pedal characteristic with 7 performance levels each. "The installation of the PedalBox goes thereby particularly simply, since the Tuning is connected at only two plug connections", says Strube further. And this is new: In addition to the keypad, the PedalBox Pro can now also be operated with the new PedalBox app. The gas pedal tuning can thus be easily switched on or off using a smartphone. The various driving programs can also be easily changed via the PedalBox app.
