Sport mode
« on: October 26, 2021, 04:22:04 pm »
Hi,
I'm sorry if its a bad question, but i cant seem to find an answer to this.
So i am waiting for my car to be delivered for a while now, and i watched a lot of videos about the 595.
When people push the sport button, i noticed that the redline is at a higher RPM.
In normal mode the redline starts at 6000 RPM and in sport mode it starts at 7000.
Im very curious about what the sport button really does to the car? Does it let you rev up your engine a bit higher or let the turbo work at higher pressure? I searched a lot about this but cant seem to find a proper answer to my question. When i test drove the car a while ago i noticed that the steering stiffened up a bit but it was only a test drive so i wasn't paying attention for a seemingly irrelevant piece of technology  :-\

    I think the red line increase is purely for show, the rev limit cuts in way before the red line!

    Apart from the dash changes, you get stiffer/heavier steering, more sensitive throttle map, more boost and on the newer Monza exhaust equipped cars the exhaust valve behaviour changes.

    Looks like it changes the throttle response curve, electronic pas behavior and exhaust valve opening times.

    Wonder if it does it through a second map in the ecu, or if it is just a software switch? If the former, I wonder if you could do the same as you can on later Subarus  and put in a new 'sport mode' map on the s4? If so that'd mean you could still keep a normal map for town / economy driving and have a much more aggressive map on sport mode.

    From what I can gather, my local chip tuner (is that the correct terminology?) say they can change the map so that it changes on Sport Button, which leads to believe two maps, in the handbook it says when you switch it takes time to take effect, this could mean if you change the map and include crackle you could leave in normal mode when you don't want to call attention to yourself.

    It's a very good option if you can do that, it also means potentially you could go quite wild on the sport mode map and put in fueling which could potentially lead to an emissions fail, but still be perfectly legal during the MOT and around towns  :thumb:
