Hello all, so glad I can finally post this thread!

Many of you may know I've been on here for quite some time.
Some history,
First Quatrz gray B7 2.0T tip.
Got her back in Feb, 2009

Transformed her into,

Then one day I'm looking on autotrader to see if our b7's are depreciating anymore than they already have and came across this beauty,
Many of you know this car from it's previous owner, Joe Zajizek aka Juggernaut201...

I knew I had to have her, got in touch with Joe learned all the specs of the car, traded in my quartz for this beautiful new Brilliant Black 6MT

How she sits now,

Ok, on to the good stuff...
Big thanks to Danny aka Eastwick, using his old Autospeed kit, everything looks to be in great condition... just a bit dirty [:p]

Parts list:
GT3071
ATP manifold
KMD HPFP
RS4 Injectors
OEM revision DV
APR Carbonio
AWE Catback Quad-tip
AWE FMIC
Southbend Stage 3 Clutch

I've decided to go with a Unitronic tune and I'm hoping to have everything in and running by next week.

I'll eventually get drop in rods, rod bearings and a lpfp and hopefully call it a day for my wallets sake haha.

Well if your using the revision d dv, according to several members the ATP adapter doesn't fit! U need the awe one or the ecs one for the s3. The ATP one leaves a gap, u will still build boost but not very well or hold it

oh I hope that works out for you, something new is always good!
b7's are still so new to stage 3, we can use all the help we can get. Then again there's no enthusiasm on going BT in the b7 forum (Compared to the b5/b6 forum), all the stage 3 threads have the same people commenting on them.

Well the money you're not spending on visuals is more money you can spend on performance, lucky you. lol

Another little update:
I went to AMS today and he's gonna order me the manifold gasket and the 5bolt gasket for the hot side.
He's going to fab me a 3 inch test pipe from the turbo to my awe downpipe instead of using the 2.5" HFC included in the kit... Big turbos need to breathe!

I'm aiming for Tuesday May, 17th for the install and tune.

So I was missing some oil/coolant fittings which I had to go out and buy at the store.
That delayed the install a bit.
Also, I'm getting a custom 3 inch testpipe and downpipe put in (the older awe's had 2.5 inch downpipes I'm guessing...?) gay.
We're also waiting on unitronic to send there updated tune (whatever that is)
So everything should be in and tuned by tomorrow! can't wait.

Very interesting project you have there BTW! AMS Autowerks are great with these custom projects ;-)

To let you know, your A4 is currently equipped with an old software revision. We always provide the most updated file the same way the dealer does when they do their ECM updates. The Ecu ID remains the same but software # and revision changes due to some updates they (Audi) made. The BT file was not available on the spot for the latest software revision so we need to process the request. We'll do everything to make this happen today. Diogo will keep you updated.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

Congratulations! Hopefully it's just plugs, you'll find that copper plugs are best but don't last more than 5000miles there are better solutions out there as well ngk... There's a thread about which plugs are best , also could be the tune adapting?? Good luck, Lavi at Unitronic is helping me get a file sorted. Not the first choice I wanted because of $$$ but in terms of service they are leagues ahead of most of the tuning companies I've worked with thus far. I may never get that REVO 3071r tune, hopefully my source can pull a rabbit out of a hat, (or a tune out of the uk) lol before I drop the dough on uni

Yeah, Unitronic really came through for me and man does it pull, even with the misfires haha.
I'll ride it out easy. Diogo has spark plugs for me, I'll swap them in and see if that's the problem.
It could very well be the tune adapting, I guess I'll find out.
Anyways, you're gonna love it man.

Ok, well here's a pretty shitty video of me trying to hold the camera, the steering wheel, and change gear all at the same time... God help me lol.
I shifted into 3rd way too early because I couldn't really see the tachometer so I judged by engine noise. This gives you an idea until I can get some good videos up.
Tonight a G37 sedan asked to race, did a 20-70 mph pull and even with his jump start, I got a car length on him
Lower the volume, I didn't think to turn off the radio when I did the pull lol.

Small update, I've been overboosting like crazy these passed 2-3 weeks so finally I went to long island to my friends shop and tried to find out what was wrong.
We did a pressure test but found no leaks, then he thought it may have been the 710N diverter valve not being able to keep up with the 3071, so I replaced it with an 034 DV. That didn't help the problem but its an upgrade none the less. We used a MBC he had laying around to bypass the N75 and that definitely did the trick. I ran to SK Speed and picked up a Forge MBC and everything seems to be running great.
Piece of shit N75's...

07-19-2011, 12:04 PM
good to hear you got your overboost figured out. You should be able to run the MBC in parallel/inline with N75 to the control the overboost though, but running just the MBC is more fun to drive haha

What did you set your MBC to btw & are you experiencing any “partial throttle” since you bypassed the N75? I think “partial throttle” is the phrase I’m looking for, meaning is your boost like a light switch now? Either you are full boost or none at all when you touch the throttle

I set her at 20.5-21 psi. She can run reliably till about 23 but I see no need for it as of now. And no, not at all... boost comes on like usual except it peaks/holds where it's supposed to.

I didn't but similar set ups got ~325-350 awhp... You can ask kristokes if he dyno'd since he now has this turbo on his car.
