Intakes getting dirty has not been an issue on the CR's and there has been no demand to develop it at this point. The '100% solution' is almost finished and in production for the Q5's.

No solid numbers but I like the change. I would think I am seeing similar numbers to what is advertised for the stage 2 upgrade on the earlier version of the 3.0L Tdi. It is certainly noticeable, less lag, faster/stronger pulls to higher RPM than stock.

I am currently away on holiday and Ken is keeping the Q5 Tdi for me. This 100% solution sounds interesting . I am curious as to how it may perform when I get back.

Can't see the pics on the iPad Ken but really excited to try out the New Blue Q. Lol. The plane can't leave Seattle fast enough.

Not certain what you are looking for in a video but I have been driving the Q5 with Malone Stage2 + BuzzKen Exhaust system and I am very happy with the result.

First, thanks to Ken (Buzzken Exhaust) and Mark (Malone Tuning) for taking the time to develop the exhaust and tune combination for the Q5 TDI, it took the better part of the 2 weeks that I was on vacation for the development work and Ken took very good care of the Q5 while he had it. He was even kind enough to drop us at the airport and pick us up on our return. Now that's service.

Subjective observations:


The Stage2 tune with stock exhaust gave a noticeable increase in HP and Torque. Performance improved from initial throttle right through to the top with less turbo lag and wider power band. The engine may have been hitting the EGT limiter and limiting power briefly however this was not really noticeable. If you want a stock Q5 TDI with a performance boost I would recommend that you get this tune.

Stage2 + Exhaust improves on the above by taking away the restrictions and allowing the car to breath. Very refined, performs like stock but with quicker response at all levels, put your foot to the floor and OMG, it just wakes right up. Instant . Fueling has been increased and it no longer hits the EGT limiter.

Sound wise, the exhaust is very similar to stock as it uses the stock mufflers. It just seems to have that little extra bit of rumble that says its special, I mean its almost like you can feel it but not hear it. The Q5 just feels different, more confident, more energetic and more powerful. I think that this is what a tune should feel like on an Audi.

I am not able to give you any hard numbers but I know that Stage2 + BuzzKen Exhaust is what you want if you are ok with pushing the limits a bit.

Thanks for the response! I guess I was just looking for start up, revs and a couple launches for the video. I have been in contact with Ken about a DPF delete for my A6 and hopefully he will have something soon. I love the way these cars sound with a DPF delete to straight pipe over in Euro, so that is most likely what I will do. I'm very happy to hear that your results have been very pleaseing!

I'm not sure of my ability to load videos on the net but I can certainly shoot a couple for you and try to load to u-tube or something.

I tried doing some vids and the audio was horrible. Will have to find another way to do them.

Update... just loving the New Blue Q. Feels like a different car and just did the first full fuel up since the revised exhaust and Malone Tune were installed. Current Imperial MPG is 42.4 (35.3 US MPG, 6.7 L/100K), this is up from an overall average of 37.2 Imp. MPG. prior to the changes and previous best tank of 38.
