Guys my IOA is not here yet , but I am reading a lot of complaints from the L99 owners that the car does NOT get up and go. They say it is sluggish and will not do 0 - 60 in under 5 sec. I would like to hear from some L99 owners that have had their cars for a while if they are happy with the performance?

Thanks

If you'll do a search you'll find some **** fast L99 times posted.

Don't sweat the negative comments. The positive comments FAR outweigh them.

I haven't received mine yet, but I've talked with some who have theirs and they are well satified. Were the reports of cars still inside breakin period?? Traction control has to off to make things work. There have been a lot of reports on this site that reported lower numbers than 5.0 0-60 I should know this week how sluggish it will be this week.

with the way the A6 is geared, it should be nice off the line. Problem is (besides the weight), there's a lot of torque management set in the computer...to keep you from breaking parts. Nothing a good tune can't fix. :D

Under 5 is not hard to do at all with it. I am no race car driver or anything, BUT, I am 40 years and a really good stick shift driver...I have the L99Auto and it rocks; I am as fast as I would be with a stick...., I have NO PROBLEM getting 0 to 60 in about 4 and a half; MAYBE closer to 4 seconds, not that I'm getting timed on a track but the car is SERIOUS and the complaints you are getting; You probably should InVESTigate some and see if they're legit, I seriously doubt they are.....

Hey man sorry you have to hear the Smartass comments coming from M6 drivers its all good from the factory they can brag but not after aftermarket.

I dont have mine yet however I have had a lot of hours behind the wheel of my Friends 2ss with the A6 automatic.
This car is held back from GM meaning Torque managment does make it lag out of the hole. After my friend did a simple tune to the car he woke it up BIG time due to deleting Torque mangment. There have a been a few on here who have tuned there A6's and they did wake up quite however from the numbers im seeing I strongly agree and beleive that its all about who tunes the car and how well they know the A6. My friends is getting a lot better numbers than anyone elses on here.....however until I get mine he won't tell me who it is only because he likes to keep it a secret so no one will use this person. So if you get a tune do your homework on the past tunes the person who is doing it accomplished.

As for is this car slow ? HELL NO yeah it lags out of the hole but in the midrange and top end its still a VERY strong car. With a simple exhaust job and tune you will have a totally different car.

Keep this in mind all the HP is GREAT and NICE to have but due to this thing being an automatic it wont ever miss a gear like some manual drivers......its knows when to shift EVERYTIME.

dont change your order keep the A6 Trust me.

Who would do this tune? A Chevy garage? Isn't it supposed to be tuned coming from the factory?

Thanks!

Every car is tuned from the factory however they are tuned very under there true capabilities !!!!!!!!!

Use your search bar on here type in Tune and read a few threads there are several people on here who can retune your car.

now keep in mind if you get a tune you void your powertrain warranty.
A tune wakes a car up BIGT TIME.

you can turn torque managment off
Turn AFM up or down whatever you want they specifiy when doing everything and explain it perfect :thumbsup:

Does say, a 2008 Mustang GT, have anything comparable to "torque management" programmed into it, or does Ford not participate in this madness?

The last I remember, their traction control system does not turn off entirely.
Well that's something completely different. We can turn that off, but have no control over the level of torque management. I don't think Ford does that (add TM "to extend the life of the drivetrain") to their Mustangs, but maybe someone knows for sure?

They don't have torque that needs managing, do they?

I guess my reply was my round-about way of saying that I don't know if they have torque management, per se, but they do try to limit you on your tail-out fun.

Want it to get out the hole hard, get a 3500 stall converter. The car wont be that much different with the TM tuned out. It has big heavy wheels to turn, not to mention the weight of the car to get moving. Think bout it.

Of course once the car is up to speed it'll go but most people like to get up n go right out of the hole.

The car needs a converter from the get go.

It has no problem with the wheels, I can burn them at will on dry pavement from dead stop, it's while you're already at a decent speed (> 30-40 mph) that it bogs down, unexpectedly I'd say.
