The Audi TT yas yet to release in the USA but overseas tuner MTM has already graced it with its tuning presence. The MTM tuned Audi TT features an upgraded turbo engine, aerodynamic components, more throaty exhaust, and more aggressive Bi-moto wheels. (These Bi-moto wheels are some of the best - and would be on my list for tuning my Audi right up there with BBS rims-www.bbs.com).
I think this TT will be a huge hit yet again for Audi and this MTM-TT is something to tide Consumers over until S-line versions and R versions appear on the market- which wont be
until at least a year after the TT hits US shores. Check out the article from mtm-online for more information.
MTM expertise from the race circuit
The heart of the MTM-TT is the 2.0 TFSI with 200 bhp. After being souped up by MTM, the direct-injection turbo petrol engine outputs at least 245 bhp (355 Nm at 1,850 rpm). In addition to this, MTM offers 250 (363 Nm/1,850 rpm), 272 (370 Nm/1,850 rpm), and a breathtaking 313 bhp (395 Nm/ 3,230 rpm) versions, which impress drivers with superior performance. MTM customers benefit here from the vast experience MTM has built up, for example, with the TT bimoto�. Only recently, on September 12, 2006, the TT bimoto� powered by two turbo-charged 1.8 liter four cylinder engines generating over 860 bhp reached 385 km/h on the Papenburg test track, setting a new track record in doing so. On the same track, which only has one 4 km long straight, MTM is hoping to break the 400 km/h barrier in the near future!
Power boosts for the TT with 3.2 V6 engine will shortly be available. In an initial stage, MTM increases the engine output to 280 bhp by means of modified camshafts and changes to the air filter and muffler system. 340 bhp are available in the second stage, which the V6 engine generates with the aid of an MTM supercharger. This puts the MTM TT hot on the heels of the 911!
To create a sound befitting of the additional power, MTM offers - both for the 2.0 TFSI and for the 3.2 V6 - a stainless steel exhaust system with a 70 mm pipe guide. This can be combined either with a 4-pipe rear muffler (4x89mm) or a 2-pipe rear silencer (2x89mm) from MTM. Both rear mufflers can be used with the standard rear apron. For the 2.0 TFSI, which normally only has recesses on the left for the tailpipes, tuning specialist MTM offers a rear apron lower section featuring an additional recess on the right. The lower section is also used for the 3.2 V6. MTM also offers the 4-pipe rear muffler with exhaust gas flap control, which helps to generate an even sportier sound.
Sporty wheel rims are a must. The TT acquires a considerably more individual look when kitted out with MTM in-house-developed "Bimoto" rims. This wheel rim is strictly no frills and, thanks to its linear design, constitutes the perfect match for the TT with its sleek appearance. Two attractive finishes in the form of "Shiny Silver" and "Polished Titanium" are available for this elegantly sporty rim. The "Bimoto" is currently available in both finishes in the format 8.5 x 19 ET 50 with size 255/35-19 tires. MTM will shortly be offering the rim also in the format 9.5 x 19 ET 45 with 255/30-19 tires, likewise in both finishes.
As regards the brakes, MTM provides customers with a number of concepts to choose from. Enhanced deceleration is ensured even by the entry-level version in the dimension 330x32. For drivers who run their TTs on 18" wheels, the 365x34 system constitutes a larger variant in the range. Those drivers who occasionally put their TTs through their paces should opt for the 380x34 system. As regards the brake discs, MTM pays particular attention to achieving an optimum weight saving compared with the competition. This is possible, for instance, by means of larger cooling ducts.
An extensive aerodynamics kit is currently in the pipeline and will shortly be available for the TT. According to MTM's general rule, special requests are also catered to. As such, customized conversions are also undertaken!
