4S, GEN 2+3 2015-

We can OBD tune the outstanding Audi R8 V10 on both the Standard (532 BHP / 540 PS) and Plus Model (602 BHP / 610 PS). The exciting part is that we can boost both versions to an impressive 630 BHP / 639 PS….or 800 BHP with the VF Supercharger Kit!

Our tuning process optimises engine performance while maintaining the car’s reliability and smooth operation. By using the on-board diagnostic port, we ensure a seamless upgrade process without the need to remove any components. With our expert tuning, you’ll experience enhanced power, improved throttle response, and an exhilarating driving experience.

Additionally, our high-quality exhaust systems, available from top brands like Remus and Armytrix, not only increase power but also deliver a richer, more captivating exhaust note. Whether you’re looking to boost performance on the track or enjoy a more dynamic drive on the road, our tuning services elevate your Audi R8 V10 to new heights.


After extensive work on the dyno and road, we have developed a calibration for the R8 V10 that significantly boosts performance without compromising the smooth driveability of the V10 engine.

Our Stage 1 upgrade safely increases the power of the standard V10 model to approximately 630 BHP / 639 PS.

Using OBD programming through the on-board diagnostic port, we can easily tune or revert the ECUs back to standard without removing them from the vehicle.

Please note this dyno graph shows raw data measured at the wheels. Our system then calculates drivetrain losses to produce engine power figures.

The Stage 1 Power upgrade includes:

  • Updated ignition control, variable valve timing, and fuel maps
  • Increased power and torque throughout the entire rev range


Stage 2 features a high-flow replacement exhaust system from Remus and Eventuri cold air intake to allow the engine to breathe easier. This system uses the standard onboard electronics to vacuum control the integrated valves. With an additional remap, we can harness the improved exhaust flow to achieve the full 645 BHP / 653 PS on the standard V10.

The sound quality (with valves open) will be greatly enhanced. The Remus exhaust system are available for order and in house fitting, due to the R8’s complexity, require 12 hours to install.

Recommended Tuning
Stage 2 Package: 
  • ECU remap
  • Revised ignition control, variable valve timing, and fuel maps
  • Eventuri Cold Air Intake Kit
  • Remus Exhaust systems (Other options available)
  • Professional installation – Approx 12 Hours

Please note that if you prefer to switch to a different brand of part, we can accommodate this request, but it will affect the overall cost. The packages we offer with the displayed parts are what we recommended.


The stock figures are impressive alone. With no forced induction there’s not much we can do to the car to make a noticeable difference. This is why Oakley Design decided they wanted us to supply and fit a VF Engineering supercharger kit to the engine. With this, our tech guys had to make hundreds of adjustments to the map before even running the car on the dyno. After this foundation layer is draft, we are able to tweak and alter the map to squeeze more power out of the supercharger.

We eagerly started the final dyno run to find that Oakley Design’s car was now running a whopping 781BHP and 837Nm torque! With 241BHP and 297Nm torque increase, this car is a hypercar killer. You wouldn’t be wrong in thinking this isn’t the same car as the supercharger really does change it in every way. But the benefits don’t stop there. The torque band is now so much smoother meaning when the pedal is touching the floor, your jaw swiftly follows.

If you have an Audi R8 V10 and are looking to get more power, you should consider our forced induction conversion. We supply, fit and tune all here at our facility in Maidstone, Kent.

Do you offer a 12 month warranty?

What is motorsport use?

Motorsport-exclusive components are explicitly designed for track use. While they can be installed on any vehicle, it’s important to note that using such parts renders the vehicle unsuitable for road use and may result in MOT failure.

Will the lifespan of my engine be reduced?

No! Our remaps are designed specifically to improve the performance of your vehicle whilst remaining within the tolerances of your vehicles’ components.

Sadly, in attempt to achieve ‘big numbers’ some other companies over tune engines, placing excessive stress on the engine, transmission, cooling systems, etc, leading to reduced life span and reliability of the vehicle. We pride ourselves in producing reliable remaps which do not over stress your vehicle but still produce impressive results.

What is covered with the 30-day money back guarantee?

In any case where a customer is dissatisfied with any ecu remap software supplied, within thirty days of the supply date, the customer can request their money back. In order for any refund to be processed, the customer must present their vehicle to our workshop and allow our technicians to restore the vehicle to its original state. On successful completion JF Automotive will refund the cost of the remap to the customer.

No refund can be granted unless the vehicle is returned to the original state by JF Automotive. The 30-day money back guarantee only applies to stage 1 remaps and does not apply to other services like pops and bangs, parts or dyno sessions.
If another modification is purchased alongside a tuning file, which relies on a remap to operate, only the cost of the file is covered by this guarantee. We reserve the right to withdraw this 30 day money back guarantee.

Read full Terms and Conditions

Can the remap be reversed?

Absolutely. We offer this service free of charge if the vehicle is brought back to us. We’ll be very surprised if that’s what you want after taking one of our remap products, however in the case of lease cars some customers prefer to put the car back to standard before returning the car. You might want it back to standard if you are visiting a dealer for warranty or service work, again we will do this for free. Should you lose your tuning files due to dealer actions or parts failure we will be happy to re-install the map onto your car free of charge where possible.

What if a main dealer wipes the map with a software update?

No problem, simply bring the vehicle back in and we will take a fresh read of your ECU and write you a new map file free of charge. We offer this as part of our lifetime software support.

Do I need to notify my insurance company?

Whilst the remap is undetectable to dealer equipment, you should notify your insurance company of any modification to your vehicle. Many insurance companies do not penalise you for upgrades of this nature, particularly if you’re tuning for increased economy however a failure to disclose modifications may invalidate your policy. You may wish to enquire with your insurer if the modification will affect your policy prior to choosing one of our services.

Why we don't you offer ECU remapping for £200?!

We get asked, “Why do some tuners charge as little as £150?” There are a few factors as to why we do not offer remapping for £100-£200!

We supply custom written files for each vehicle that we remap that take in to account condition, milage and customer request of each vehicle. Our services are fully insured with a 30-day money back guarantee and lifetime support for the tuning software supplied. We constantly invest in the most up to date tuning and diagnostic equipment and software and we offer a quality service to all our customers.

Overall our custom supplied tuning software is of the highest standard that we know of, so if you want the best of the best, choose JF Automotive.
