I have a 2000 coupe a/4 and want to do some basic mods. which computer programmer works best as far as seat of the pants feel. Are they worth it? my plans are only for a blackwing, a good catback system and the computer reprogram for 93octane. I have 2.73 gears. what shoud be quarter mile times be? how much better would 3:15's work gear wise? thanks, edram454

they are both good. The Predatopr seems to be picked more often by C5 owners because the Hypertech has a bug - when upgrading the rear axle radio (on the A4) beyond the 3.15

thanks mike for the reply. I thought more people would reply since most do special programming and power improvments. I took you advice and purchased the diablo predator.

They are both pretty limited, but of the two, the Predator is more capable. If you have a '97 or '98 though, Hypertech is your only choice.
