First off, thanks to all of you B8-S5 V8 guys for your support with all of your encouraging comments, emails, PMs, and phone calls. We really appreciate you guys waiting on us to build more products for your cars. Also, a big thanks for all of those who have already purchased our JHM "Solid" Short Throw Shifter, Lightweight Rotors and a special thanks to those who have been running some parts still not to market for the last few years. Now with the acquisition of this vehicle, keep an eye for our B8-S5 V8 product line to expand very soon.

B8-S5 Section in the JHMotorsports.com online store (http://jhmotorsports.com/shop/catalog/2008-up-b8-c-21_276_277.html) to see what we currently offer.


This is the official JHM B8 S5 4.2l V8 FSI build thread for our new in house 2008 S5. We will cover each and every modification and repair we make to the vehicle as we build it to push the B8-S5 4.2L V8 performance to new levels.


Specifications on the car as purchased on 6-02-13. I flew to Los Angeles to pick it up with friend and drove it back the same day.
-Completely stock 4.2L FSI V8
-6-speed manual transmission
-80,000 miles
-100% bone stock except wheel spacers and a rusty Magnaflow downpipe back system. (See picture below of how we got the stock cat-back to one of our dealer’s shops to have it shipped back up to us in Northern California for Research and Development reasons.)
-Meteor Gray Exterior
-Magma Red interior with Carbon Fiber trim



The story of how the purchase went down.
Jake here at JHM was tasked to find a car for us to purchase so we could kick our B8 S5 V8 program into high gear just like we had done with our B6-B7 S4 and B7-RS4 programs. I told him the higher the mileage, the better so we could run into issues and learn more about what fails on the car. This is just like what we did for the B6-B7 S4 starting back in 2009 as shown here -> JHM B6 S4 Build thread (http://www.audizine.com/forum/showthread.php/281969-JHM-just-acquired-a-2005-S4-6-speed-for-more-R-amp-D-and-track-abuse-(build-thread)). It took about 6 months for him to find a good candidate since most were super clean, super low mileage, or too far away. Then this one popped up in Los Angeles at 80,000 miles and it looked clean for the mileage. I talked to the owner and jumped on a plane to LA the next day. The car ended up being as advertised and I purchased it on site so I could drive it back to Lathrop with my good friend. Here are some pictures from my phone at a Target parking garage close to LAX where the owner of the car picked us up:

http://jhmotorsports.com/projects/JHM_B8_S5_V8/InitialPurchase/JHM_B8_S5_Purchased_in_LA_Rear_View.JPG

This is the fun picture. So I figured we would go to a store nearby LAX after the previous owner picked me up and have them bring the stock cat back in the truck to take the owner of the car back home. That way we could buy towels and tie down straps to get the stock cat back to JHM by dropping it off at one of our dealers down in LA.

Plans for this car performance wise Running as far as we can in the 12s all-motor is the utmost priority.
1. Carbon clean and JHM B8 S5 intake spacers. Our intake spacers have been on B8-S5s already for around a year so it is ready for release, coming soon.
2. JHM Lightweight Flywheel and Stage 4 clutch. We’ve been developing this kit for over 2 years and it’s been on customer cars for over 1 years. With this car purchase and our long term testing complete, final units are in production as we speak.
3. JHM Tuning. We have already tuned several B8-S5s so we just need to finalize details for a 91 octane and 93 octane file release.
4. JHM Test Pipes, JHM True Cat-back (with downpipes). We have been pretty far along with our exhaust on this car for some time now. NOTE: OEM downpipes are just resonated pipes (no cats) so for a true cat back you need to replace the downpipes as part of the system. These cars have separate pipes that are about 2 feet in length for the cats and would be upgraded to a test pipe or high flow cat pipe, basically just like a 1.8t or 2.0t but times two. Audi just configured the the B8 chassis exhaust different with an extra component for just the cats that used to be in the downpipes on older B6-B7 V8s.
5. JHM Lightweight front and rear rotors. Previously released. Click here: -> B8 S4-S5 Front and Rear Lightweight Rotors in the JHMotorsports.com online store (http://jhmotorsports.com/shop/catalog/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=JHM+B8+S4+S5+l ightweight+rotor&x=-1097&y=-200).
6. Lightweight wheels. Time will tell what brand we’ll go with.
7. As the JHM B8-S5 4.2L V8 Program progresses, I am sure we will find more goodies.
8. (or later depending on other products we develop) JHM-Vortech Supercharger Kit.

Only time will tell what other parts we’ll release for this platform. The more you continue to support us, the more we can do with this car.

Thanks again, guys!

I called you guys recently regarding a custom tune or other goodies. I'm in SoCal and you indicated that I could work out smething where I have my car delivered to Lathrop for the tune with about a 2 week turn around time. I also want downpipes as well. I don't know what you'd do as far as a tune for me but I want it. I have a 2009 S5 with tiptronic. Talk to me!

Dru was telling me about this acqusition at Wuste. He also told me about that clutch kit. I -NEED- that clutch kit. Have the APR charger with the South Bend DXD disc and it does NOT even cut it. Cannot launch this car, cannot hard shift from 1st or 2nd. Does not want to grab hard. Fried the crap out of it on Friday without even being too harsh with it, I am disappointed with it. Really anxious for the JHM kit to be available.

jaybquick@JHM

dat interior [drool]

Jay, does the jhm shifter reduce height at all or just the throws?

1/2" height drop plus the 2 throw settings.

With our experience making shifters since 2006 for many different Audi Chassis we have found that 1/2" is where to be on the B8. 1" is too short IMO (we have phased that out with most models over the years based on feedback and experiences due to less leverage on the actual shifter mechanism). The only cars we offer the 1" shorter for is the older B5 chassis cars since they still sell well and those owners seem to like it, plus their transmissions are quite different than the B8 transmissions which factors into it as well. Stock height for the cosmetic crowd is not appealing so with all our B6-B7 and B8 models we have found that 1/2" drop is the best performing and best looking while still using our proven all steel design. That is why we only allow adjustment at the bottom of the shifter where you don't see it with 2 different hole locations to get the throw you want. The longer throw is a little easier than the shorter option but still much shorter than stock and both are quite smooth with that direct performance feel we are known for. I personally run our shifters in my B5 S4, B6 S4 and B8 S5 in the normal short throw setting (top hole), but 80% of our customers run it in the shortest setting (lower hole). So it is the owners preference and we cater to both. We avoid knob height adjustment due to another moving part (as part of the adjustment) that can wear out especially if any of it is aluminum, our main concerns are longevity, durability, performance and value. With just a bolt location change adjustment wise there is no longevity concern, you just move the bolt.

Basically we have been doing shifters for 7 years in Audis and used everything we have learned first hand, feedback from thousands of customers and employees to get the B8 shifter to be optimal with only 2 setting changes and at a great price. Plus it is way less confusing to the customer this way and they benefit from our experience and thousands of customers feedback by buying from us.

Thanks for the interior compliments and the question. My employees were stoked too when I bought it, I have been quite busy in the B6-B7 S4 and B7 RS4 platform and didn't realize how desirable it was. I actually love this interior now that I have a car with it. But now that I own a B8 S5 I am HOOKED!

UPDATE (8-6-13) - First maintenance item (Carbon Clean) and second mod (JHM intake spacers)


Standard at JHM with ANY FSI all motor car we ALWAYS do a carbon clean every 10k to 20k to keep them in top running shape and keep the high rpm power strong. Time and time again we have seen B7 RS4s gain 15-30WHP when having a Carbon Cleaning done after 20k+ miles of buildup. We have also done this before and after test with our standard 3rd gear pull data as well and we always see amazing gains. So this is another known power adder or maintainer depending on how often you do it.

So to speed up the process with our in house car since we know it works we collected acceleration data in 3rd gear from 2000 rpm to Redline on a day with 75f temps and car with the same tire pressure, same exact direction on the same road, same gas fill level, etc. (We have done the cleaning and spacers on B8 S5s and TONS of B7 RS4s over the years so this data collection is just for re-base lining for the next mod on our car.) This is VERY standard for us and we have been using this technique since 2006. This helps us learn how the car really performs acceleration wise and helps us know how to get cars right to go fast down a 1/4 mile and show us things a dyno may not due to wind drag and a non-controlled environment, etc. We do believe a dyno is a great measuring tool on the same car in same conditions used for internal data and not as a marketing tool but for supplemental data. We have just had such great success this way and have thousands of happy customers after installing our mods so we plan on continuing with what works with our B8 S5 V8 program. With that being said we still may dyno our B8 S5 periodically to aid in the overall picture and data collection. With every mod, no matter how tiny to confirm the results are similar or better than our B6-B7 S4 and our B7 RS4 programs we will be doing this in the background like any other development program we have. We plan on basically implementing all our proven parts for those cars into the B8 S5 over the next several months and years.

With that being said it was a no brainer to install and finalize our B8 S5 intake spacer kit for the early B8 S5s with the 1 piece aluminum manifold. In 2009 they had a split and switched to a 2-piece plastic manifold (working on this kit now, but it is more involved due to the design of the lower manifold and the fuel rail). We generally don't like to do two things at once but we already know these work on FSI V8s based on testing on the RS4 over the years (with installs done after a carbon clean separately). This way we could get the power back and keep the manifold cooler for more consistent power and add a little torque over stock in the process. Then we can move onto finalizing our tune, lightweight flywheel and clutch kit


Here is the product page and pictures for our Early B8 S5 V8 intake spacer kit.

INSTALL NOTES for JHM Intake Spacers (8mm thick) for B8-S5 FSI V8, Up to Early 2009:


Basically it is the same labor plus a couple little modifications as an intake manifold removal for a carbon clean. Here are some notes that a person who has successfully performed a carbon clean would need. Also supplied is some information regarding the oil separator heater bypass kit.

Sorry for the delayed responses and thanks to all who subscribed and expressed your excitement. It motivates us. If I missed anyone please repost.



Hurry up with that supercharger before I go with apr :-)

We will do all we can, but the kit is MUCH different for mounting vs our B6-B7 S4 kit and our B7 RS4 kit. Hopefully within a year, but only time will tell.



what happeend with the headers you were developing for S5(i remember seeing thread elsewhere while back)? no plans to put them on this car?

We did a one off set a few years ago. We are concentrating on test pipes and full exhausts since pulling the motor is probably a few years out for these S5s for maintenance reasons. We learned a lot with the B6-B7 S4 about making them too early in the game. We need to progress as the market needs so look for FULL manifold back stuff VERY soon.



Also subscribed, i am still running a stock clutch with my APR stage 3, no doubt it will eventually fail, however it has been prefect for for 3 years! love JHM..

Can I please have an approx forgive delivered to Australia? For a clutch?

Cheers

Please email us at sales@jhmotorsports.com so we can better assist you.



hope this isnt one of those threads where they state they are doing something and then disappear for a good year or two. Is that charger out already? :)

Nope, the car is my DD as the owner of the company so I plan to do my best to keep it updated like our B6-B7 S4 build thread that went on from 2009 to 2011 that is actually due for some love very soon. So initially it should be quite a busy thread, lots of goodies to build and release.



Maybe some RS5 stuff, perhaps, maybe possibly?

That would be the natural course of things. Just like the B6-B7 S4 stuff made its way into the B7 RS4 we plan on doing the same for the RS5 once we get the S5 V8 market to the level of the B6-B7 S4.

Thanks.

I called you guys recently regarding a custom tune or other goodies. I'm in SoCal and you indicated that I could work out smething where I have my car delivered to Lathrop for the tune with about a 2 week turn around time. I also want downpipes as well. I don't know what you'd do as far as a tune for me but I want it. I have a 2009 S5 with tiptronic. Talk to me!

Please follow up with us we need a Tiptronic car here NOW for some Test-Pipe or Cat-Pipe fitment confirmation. Remember the downpipes on these cars just has resonators and is included as part of a proper FULL cat back system which ours will. So these cars have Cat pipes between the downpipes and manifolds that we can get on your car and our true full cat back shortly as well. From what I can tell on AWE's site they only have a downpipe back and not a true cat back, this is what magnaflow does as well. For a true cat back on these cars you must replace the resonated downpipes. APR already has a true cat back and that is what our system will achieve as well. The biggest power gains once you have a true cat back will be our new test pipes or Performance cat pipes.

More info in this thread soon.

UPDATE: 8-7-13.

Good news and Bad news. Both in the same to us though!

The new found power of the Carbon Clean and intake spacers made the clutch slip on hard high rpm shifts. This is not a surprise since the B8 S5 (V8 & 3.0T) and the B8 S4 from what we have seen and heard both have a weak stock clutch anyways. So if we weren't pumped already to upgrade it would be bad news, now we can get our Lightweight Flywheel and Stage 4 clutch in this bad boy. We have had these parts in development and testing for over 2 years now, buying this in house car has been a great motivator to get everything to market. So I guess it is really not bad news, good news to us and to anyone needing an upgrade as well.

More updates and pics of that job coming soon and an official release.


Thanks.

That surprises me abut your clutch, my S5 is supercharged and the stock clutch is fine, although no launches or quick shifting and my car has been APR charged for 3 years now.

I'd be very interested in the new clutch you have to offer as it can only be a matter of time.

Do you drive aggresively? We are always a little overboard with our stuff to help test OEM and our parts to be prepared for all scenarios for our customers. If you check out our youtube page you will see what I am talking about. We beat the crap out of our stuff so customers don't have to. Unless they want to of course.

Mine slides on very fast shifts or power shifts. We normally don't see this even on stock clutches with the B6-B7 S4 or B7 RS4 unless they have high mileage.

The really odd thing is that we got my trans out yesterday and the clutch and flywheel look to be replaced within the last 10k miles. They have the updated PN on the flywheel and the Pressure plate and disc have the Audi reman stamp on them. Just a bunch of disc powder from me beating on it. We don't even have our test pipes or tune on it yet.

Here is a pic of my stock updated stuff that must have been replaced by the previous owner.

UPDATE 8-9-13: History of our lightweight flywheel that has been in testing since 2011 and now ready for release.

In this post I will be sharing pics of the prototyping from 2011, the manufacturing process and the install on our in house car. After 2 years of selling and installing these quietly and verifying durability, longevity, etc. we are ready to start selling these flywheels and clutch kits publicly. We take pride in not selling prototypes to the public instead we take our time and use due diligence prior to public release here on Audizine. We have another batch rolling off of the CNC lathe and mill next week! Look for a new more official thread soon, in the meantime please email sales@jhmotorsports.com or call 209-968-0077 for more details, pricing, etc.

Thanks again for your support for those who have been contacting us continuously over the last couple years regarding this product. You are our motivation.




SECTION 1
Prototyping and original V1 design in which we drilled out the rivets on the OEM unit and reused the lower half. In 2011 we only replaced the upper heavy dual mass cast iron portion of the flywheel with a JHM built aluminum piece (most measure in at 29lbs plus total from the factory). This was the quick way to get proof of concept for our bearing assembly and overall feel of this flywheel in a car. Since it would not be extremely difficult to duplicate the lower piece at a later date. Proof of concept is always a great start when dealing with a major change in Audi's OEM parts like this 2 piece flywheel which allows the engine to me moved further back in the car for better weight distribution. Previous to the B8 they were all much simpler. An added bonus to getting a product on a car is that it gives us a head start in our long term testing, which we take pride in. We sold about a dozen of them in this configuration with a core charge, which obviously would have been difficult to go public with. Needless to say these were a MAJOR pain to drill apart and press apart, the time this took almost counter acted building a new JHM lower piece but was obviously quicker. This design was lighter than our final billet upper and lower piece built in house by a couple lbs (I will be showing further down in this thread). This lighter V1 design received no complaints about drive-ability in Both B8 S4 and S5s with V8 or 3.0T engines. That being said with our slightly heavier full billet piece we still get a great weight reduction with increased strength and durability and no core required. The stock lower piece is thin stamped steel.

Finally. You guys did that install of the JHM LW clutch and flywheel on your 2012 Detroit trip on that test car out here. The car has been running flawless for over a year and a half. He still drives the car super aggressive every time I see him. Completely changed the way the car accelerates and makes the car more "sporty"

Great mod even if its just to replace the OEM unit for nothing more then an update. Good to see this making its way to the public. You guys really take testing to a new level.

great work.

Sorry for the delay.

Conservatively 30% torque capacity over stock with the stage 3 and Conservatively 40% torque capacity over stock with the stage 4.

All based off of years of clutch abuse in Audi S4s/RS4s and making sure we have those more abusive customer handled. Check out our JH Motorsports Youtube page for examples of our testing. (http://www.youtube.com/user/JHMotorsportsInc)


Obviously the casual driver who doesn't launch or power shift can expect more at WOT for holding power.

These cars are easier than the B6-B7 and B5 chassis cars especially on the V motors.

More involved than a FWD honda but probably about as complex as an AWD mitsu.

I reckon it's because JHM haven't found the limit of the 4.2 FSI yet. The B7 RS4 version is already in the low 11's @ mid-120's in the 1/4 mile. That's probably about 600 awhp (pure guesstimate). There's some chat elsewhere about the differences between the S5's 4.2 FSI and the B7 RS4's high revving monster - maybe not as different as I thought. (http://*******************/forum/index.php?topic=2010.msg52715#msg52715)

So maybe with an intercooler and all the other "usual" JHM goodies, the supercharged S5 might be getting close-ish. All pure speculation of course, but an exciting time for S5 owners!

Definitely!

TTS has their S5 11.4 sec 1/4 with around 625 chp according to their dyno. Problem is this cost about twice as much as what the JHM kit will be. I was pm'ing a TTS owner who mentioned 625chp is about the limit of the 4.2 FSIs.

so the headers are stock and you've changed the cats to HF ones, don't they come as one piece (headers+cats)?
just curious how you did it ...

I See that you have an RS5. The RS5 come stock with Catted Headers. The S5 has only exhaust manifolds with a removable cat sections(which the RS5 you cannot remove the cats unless you cut them out). We replaced the cat sections with non catted piping, hence test pipe.

The headers mention on Audirevotion were a one off for a customer. The S5 does not have the timing chain issues like the B6-B7 S4s so there is no reason to pull the motor out, therefore it would be very costly to install headers. I am sure if the market starts to demand headers we can look into production on them in the future though.

forgot you could detach the cats from the headers on S5, hence my posting, thought they were one piece like RS5, that's pretty convenient, it probably makes it possible then to pull the headers without dropping the motor if need be, wish that was the case with RS ...

do you run the Apicol rear diff mount as well, was wondering what it actually does, if you don't mind,

We are running the Apikol mount in the shop S5. Typically you will notice the car feeling more smooth when on and off the gas quickly and when launching the car it will be smooth instead of shaky to to say. However, if the rest of your suspension and mounts are bad you will not notice anything, because it will be hidden within all of the slop the bad parts are creating.

In a nutshell, it tightens up the rear end so there is less slop.

Super happy customer here! Installed Stage 4 clutch and lightweight flywheel 3,000 miles ago. Big noticeable difference!!!

OEM clutch had 85k on it and was toast. New clutch took a long time to break in but is super smooth and handles full power launches and redline shifts with no problem. Ready for the JHM supercharger.

Big thanks to Ken@Sundwrenched for quality install!

Jake, first off, I am very interested in the performance products you are putting out. I am real curious if you have put your S5 on the dyno. Would love to know what kind of power you are seeing at the wheels. Second, thanks for sharing everything that you have thus far. I check this string constantly and waiting in the wings for you to bring out the tune and the exhaust. Keep it up.

I have HFC with AWE touring and non res DP. It is amazing.

Doublea4, don't worry as much about dyno compared to the numbers they're getting on drag times. The HFC adds to tq for sure, that is based on me and my buddy's dyno results.

Keep up the good work guys!

Jake, what do you estimate the time is to install the HFC pipes. Just trying to gauge what I have to sock away before making the plunge. Also, would your opinion be that the HFC's alone with a stock exhaust would make difference? Or is this an upgrade that would require consideration of exhaust and/or intake? Thanks for your time on here and this thread rocks!

We are using the same Vortech V3-Si unit that we use on the S4 and RS4. On the RS4, stage 1 kits run mid to high 11s and stage 2 gets into the 10s. We want to get further into development/testing before we start releasing more detailed information because things can change.

What levels of boost are you running through these motors?
The RS4 running times like that is doable as the internals can handle high levels of boost and upwards of 700hp with lots of abuse. I am not confident that the internals of the non-RS motors can do the same.

We are running safe levels, I will be able to get more into this down the road after we thoroughly test limits of the engine.

Hi Cupcake,

AFAIK, the S5 motor has more in common with the RS4 motor than you would expect. The obvious slight differences are the higher performing cams, which in turn leads to higher RPM, but internals are very similar, in that both engines have forged pistons, etc.

I know of a few people with supercharged S5's running very close to the 700bhp mark, so I do believe that the S5 engine has what it takes. It's usually things like clutches or flywheels that tend to go on both the RS4 and S5 if abused at these power levels.

Jake@Jhm thanks for the response. Can you confirm what Steve said here is accurate or not? And share more info about the engine itself? [:D]

The engine in the S5 is different than the RS4 and different than the S4 4.2L.

We will definitely talk about the supercharger kit. It is early in development, so there isn't much to talk about other than we use the Vortech V3-Si, which is a unit rated for 775hp.

Feel free to read up on the S4 kit: http://jhmotorsports.com/shop/catalog/jhm-supercharger-kit-for-b6-b7-s4-stage-p-819.html

You need to possibly clear your selected vehicle when you visit the site. I had my 2009 audi S5 saved and when I visited the link it show'd that there wasn't a website for the S4. As soon as I cleared my saved vehicle and clicked the link again it worked.

Jake...if you are using basically the same kit as the S4 does that mean it will around the same price range as the S4 kit? I am anxiously awaiting your release as I am one payment away from owning 2009 S5 outright. Therefore, I will be looking for something to spend my money on very soon!! Lol ;-)

PS - your short shifter is amazing and very easy to install...and the stage 3 clutch and flywheel combo has been flawless!!

Thank you for the support everyone. We appreciate it and we still have many products to be released for this platform. Check out this recently development from 034Motorsport that we helped test and abuse:


Hey Everyone!

JH Motorsports is pleased to offer 034Motorsport's new line of Street Density engine mounts for the B8 S5 and RS5 with the 4.2L FSI V8.
034Motorsport's Density Line Mounts are the new standard in comfort and performance. Their mounts are redesigned with performance in mind. Manufactured from high-durometer rubber for increased performance and durability, these mount offer improved driving dynamics and shifting feel without sacrificing comfort. 034Motorsport Density Line Mounts are void-free and fluid-free, eliminating the slop associated with the factory mounts. We have been testing "Abusing" these engine mounts since June of 2014, and we have even ran an 11.8 in the 1/4 mile with these in our in-house, JHM Supercharged B8 S5!


https://jhmotorsports.com/shop/catalog/images/034MS-B8-V8-Motor-Mount-pair.JPG

https://jhmotorsports.com/products/pictures/034/034MS-B8-Motor-Mount-vs-oem.JPG

034Motorsport Street Density Engine Mounts are manufactured from 65 durometer rubber, which is a significant upgrade from the 45 durometer rubber used in stock B8 Audi S5-RS5 mounts. Since the mounts are also void-free and solid-filled, the resulting mount is substantially stiffer than stock, without introducing any additional noise, vibration, or harshness into the cabin. The mount bodies are made from high-quality, cast aluminum using OEM production techniques.

The result is greatly reduced drivetrain slop, crisper shifting, and minimal wheel hop. This is all accomplished without any noticeable increase in noise, vibration, or harshness (NVH) inside of the cabin. The solid rubber, void-free and fluid-free design eliminates the possibility of leakage and collapse, which is a very common issue with factory mounts. These mounts are a completely re-engineered performance solution, not just inserts for use with the factory mounts. They were tested thoroughly at 034Motorsport and here at JHM before release.

034Motorsport Street Density Engine Mounts utilize emulators to replicate the electronics of the factory engine mounts for plug-and-play installation. This ensures check engine/malfunction indicator light (CEL, MIL) free operation for cars equipped with active engine mounts.

Failed OEM Engine Mounts:


https://jhmotorsports.com/products/pictures/mounts/WHERE_YOU_CAN_SEE_LEAKAGE_WITH_MOUNTS_STILL_IN_CAR .jpg

- These OEM Engine Mounts are filled with fluid, and the easiest way to determine that they have failed is to look for the trails left over from the engine mount fluid leaking. If you see any trials that look like the image above, you likely have a popped/failed engine mount that is needing to be replaced.

https://jhmotorsports.com/products/pictures/mounts/Bad_PAIR_JHM_S5_RIPPED_CLOSEUP.jpg

https://jhmotorsports.com/products/pictures/mounts/Bad_PAIR_JHM_S5_RIPPED.jpg

- As you can see, it doesn't take much tearing of the OEM Rubber mount to cause significant leakage of the mount fluid. By the time the OEM mount is able to leak, the mount can no longer adequately support the engine.

https://jhmotorsports.com/products/pictures/mounts/Bad_PAIR_CUSTOMERS_CAR_PASSENGER_SIDE_SEPARATED.jp g

https://jhmotorsports.com/products/pictures/mounts/Bad_PAIR_CUSTOMERS_CAR_MURDER_SCENE_WITH_FLUID.jpg

- If you continue to drive using a failed engine mount, the mount will continue to deteriorate until the engine is no longer connected to the mount, which can cause serious unwanted engine movement. This can open the possibility of damage to other components.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to let us know!

Jake

Here is an early quote:
"Time and time again we have seen B7 RS4s gain 15-30WHP when having a Carbon Cleaning done after 20k+ miles of buildup. We have also done this before and after test with our standard 3rd gear pull data as well and we always see amazing gains. So this is another known power adder or maintainer depending on how often you do it."

Can you share these results so that we can see the impact of carbon cleaning alone.
Thanks for your great thread.

Results will vary, depending on the dyno and weather. However you will notice the restored performance immediately after a carbon clean.

Jake - are you guys shipping engine software for V8 S5? I started the process with you in the summer but then you pulled the software due to some issue introduced by Audi's own update. I'm eager to get a few oomph in my car and also improve the throttle response.

Anything else you have in the works for the V8s? You had a bunch of stuff for my old B6 S4 but not much for the S5s.

Jake...does my ECU need to have Audis new update in order to work with your new tune? How do I determine if I have the new update or not? Are the older versions of your tune(pre Audi update) still available? I do have Vagcom. I don't know if Audi would do it when I take it in for something else without notifying me.

Also...I commented on a thread for the high flow cats, and I was wondering if I could still purchase those even if they've been taken off the website. At my own risk I suppose?

Hey guys!

It has been a while since we have given you guys some updates! There is some good news to come, so stay tuned!


In the mean time, if you haven't already check out the new JHM Solid Linkage Upgrade for the B8!

https://jhmotorsports.com/shop/catalog/images/JHM-B8-Linkage-and-Cross-Rod-for-Web.jpg

Here at JHM, we have been developing and building shifter and linkage upgrades for Audis since 2006. As we've done for the B5, B6, and B7 platforms, we're bringing the JHM "Solid" shifting experience to your B8 Chassis Audi with our B8 Solid Linkage and Cross Rod Upgrade!

https://jhmotorsports.com/products/pictures/crossrod/JHM-B8-Linkage-and-Cross-Rod-detail.jpg

While Audi has improved on their OEM shifter setup since the days of the incredibly sloppy B5, they still use primarily plastic and rubber components in their B8 linkage. This contributes to the vague and somewhat rubbery feel you experience while shifting your B8 Audi and makes the linkage alone worse than previous generations. Furthermore, as plastic ages it gets brittle and tends to break easily.

https://jhmotorsports.com/products/pictures/crossrod/JHM_B8-Crossrod_Comparison.jpg

If you are looking for the ultimate shifting experience with precise feedback allowing for confident gear changes, the JHM B8 Solid Linkage and Cross Rod Upgrade is what you need. Our JHM B8 Linkage and Cross Rod setup is the ultimate upgrade for increasing the durability and longevity of your linkage components while dramatically improving the shifting experience of your B8 Audi.

Adding our JHM Linkage and Cross Rod or a JHM Solid Short Throw Shifter alone won't bring much noise or vibration into the cabin due to Audi's ultra-silent, rubber lined shift knob. However, if you're looking for the ultimate shifting experience with more of a race inspired setup, we recommend our Linkage, Shifter, and Shift Knob which can all be found in the same section as this product. NOTE: Adding in our shift knob and other variables like your exhaust setup, other lightweight/performance components (crank pulleys, flywheels, etc...), and factory tolerances may affect how much of an increase in interior noise, vibration and/or harshness you experience. Remember, Audi designed these components with lots of plastic and rubber to hide normal noises that the engine and transmission make so removing them can reveal some of those noises.

This linkage and cross rod upgrade is a direct replacement for the OEM components. Our JHM Linkage and Cross Rod replaces the OEM plastic socket assemblies on both the linkage and the cross rod with 2 spherical steel bearings and one graphite impregnated, polyurethane bushing.

JHM Linkage
On the linkage, we put a steel spherical bearing in a custom race at the end of the shift rod or selector shaft.

JHM Cross Rod
Matching exactly the OEM dimensions, we attach our Cross Rod upgrade to a cage on top of the race using another, smaller spherical rod end housed in a bronze race for more rigid side to side feel. On the other end of the Cross Rod at the selector shaft cap on the transmission, we use a heavy duty, graphite impregnated, polyurethane bushing.

Not only do these spherical and polyurethane bushings offer much more precise shifting while delivering more feedback than stock but they are also much more durable than the OEM plastic setup.

Our JHM B8 Solid Linkage and Cross Rod Upgrade will deliver the ultimate shifting experience when paired with our JHM B8 Solid Short Throw Shifter. However, it will also dramatically improve your shifting performance if you only have a stock or aftermarket shifter.

Introducing the JHM 4.2L FSI 32v V8 Lightweight Crank Pulley for the B8-S5!!!
Our Lightweight Pulley is perfectly counterbalanced like stock for proper engine balancing AND it drops 5 pounds of rotating mass in the process. The pulleys are anodized BLACK so they look stock and blend in. This design has been proven on the Audi V8 on hundreds of cars since 2009.

https://jhmotorsports.com/shop/catalog/images/JHM_B6-B7_S4_Lightweight_Pulley_Black.jpg

https://jhmotorsports.com/products/pictures/CrankPulley/JHM_B6-B7_S4_Lightweight_Pulley_Compare.jpg

ABOUT THE PRODUCT:
Reducing the rotating mass of parts in or attached to the engine free up horsepower. This modification will not provide you with a drastic increase in power but it is a great piece of the naturally aspirated V8 power puzzle when coupled with our other bolt on upgrades. If you're looking for some feedback on these units, feel free to search any of the online Audi forums, specifically in the B6-B7 S4 sections where we have had many customers run these units for years!

INSTALLATION NOTES:
When installing this pulley it is a great time to replace your drive belt. We sell these as well here in this section. It is important that you notice how tight your stock belt is prior to removal to gain access to the pulley. If you do not tighten it at least as tight as the stock belt was it will slip and squeal. Also note that one bolt hole has a dowel in the stock pulley and must be removed and inserted into the JHM pulley. Then the JHM Lightweight Pulley can only go on one way. Torque all bolts to 20 ft lbs in a star pattern. We also recommend using Loctite

JHM Front Lightweight Rotors

http://jhmotorsports.com/projects/JHM_B8_S5_V8/ControlArmsAndLWR/S5_Lightweight_Rotor_1.jpg

https://jhmotorsports.com/products/pictures/LWrotors/JHM_LW_Rotor_Update.jpg

Due to popular demand, all of our 2-piece, lightweight rotors will now come with black anodized rotor hats featuring Type 3, hard anodizing, the highest quality and hardest anodizing available for aluminum. This will make the rotor hats more resistant to fade and wear and will hide brake dust better. Due to popular demand all lightweight rotor rings will also feature zinc plating. This high quality coating will slow the effects of corrosion and keep your rotor rings looking good through the winters.

These rotors shave 14.5 lbs of unsprung weight from the front of your car while increasing braking performance, plus they bolt on just like stock! This is great alternative to a full on Big Brake Kit since the stock B8-S4 and S5 rotor is already a stout 345mm (13.6") and most may not want to spend $2,000 plus for a full Big Brake Kit. We basically brought the same high performance great cooling designed rotor to these drop in (fit like stock) front rotors and at a 1/4 of the price or less of a full Big Brake Kit.

Stock vs. JHM
-Rotor Weight: Stock = 23lbs(each), JHM = 15.75lbs(each) - 31% LIGHTER, 7.25lbs less each
-Rotor Cooling Air-gap: Stock = 11.5mm(.450"), JHM = 18.5mm(.728") - LARGER for better cooling
-Rotor Cooling Center Fin Design: Stock = One Direction Airfoil (one side pumps the air from the inside out and the other side pumps the air from the outside in), JHM = Airfoil (side specific rotors that both pump the air from the inside out) - EQUAL EFFICIENCY for equal cooling
-Rotor OD: Stock = 345mm(13.6"), JHM = 345mm(13.6") - SAME
-Rotor Thickness: Stock = 30mm(1.18"), JHM = 30mm(1.18") - SAME
-Bolt pattern: - SAME (fits like an OEM rotor would)

INCLUDES: 2 - JHM 2-piece Lightweight Front Rotors. (Each rotor weighs 7.25lbs less than stock for a total of almost 14.5lbs weight savings.) 31% lighter!

Outer ring specs:
We worked closely with a race brake manufacturer that supplies many NASCAR racers and a couple major brake kit companies. Due to their expertise we chose to have them build us the outer rings to our specs to fit the B8 S4 and S5. The rings feature 12 attachment points for durability and strength.

Center hat specs:
We CNC machine the Aluminum center hats in house based on their recommended materials and thicknesses for durability. 12 attachment points for durability and strength. We also engrave JHM in them in 3 locations equal from each other, it looks clean and doesn't jump out or look tacky.



JHM Rear Lightweight Rotors

Shaves 11lbs of unsprung weight from the rear of your car while increasing braking performance, plus they bolt on just like stock! This is great alternative to a full on Big Brake Kit since the stock B8 S4 and S5 rotor is already a stout 330mm (12.9") and most may not want to spend $2,000 plus for a full Big Brake Kit. We basically brought the same high performance great cooling designed rotor to these drop in (fit like stock) rear rotors and at a 1/4 of the price or less of a full Big Brake Kit.

Stock vs. JHM
-Rotor Weight: Stock = 17lbs(each), JHM = 11.5lbs(each) - 32% LIGHTER, 5.5lbs less each.
-Rotor Cooling Air-gap: Stock = 6.35mm(.250"), JHM = 13mm(.511") - LARGER for better cooling
-Rotor Cooling Center Fin Design: Stock = Straight Fin, JHM = Airfoil - MORE EFFICIENT for better cooling
-Rotor OD: Stock = 330mm(12.9"), JHM = 330mm(12.9") - SAME
-Rotor Thickness: Stock = 22mm(.866"), JHM = 22mm(.866") - SAME
-Bolt pattern: - SAME (fits like an OEM rotor would)

INCLUDES: 2 - JHM 2-piece Lightweight Rear Rotors. (Each rotor weighs 5.5lbs less than stock for a total of 11lbs weight savings.) 32% lighter!

We also have the 034 Billet Trans Mount Insert installed on the JHM S5!


Introducing the 034Motorsport B8 Chassis Transmission Mount Insert!!!

JH Motorsports is pleased to offer 034Motorsport's Billet Aluminum Transmission Mount Insert for the B8 Audi A4-S4-RS4 and A5-S5-RS5! The factory Audi transmission mount has a large void in the rubber damping medium that results in excessive transmission movement under load. This movement results in drivetrain slop than can be observed when accelerating, decelerating, and shifting.

https://jhmotorsports.com/shop/catalog/images/034MS-B8-trans-mount-insert-for-web.jpg

By filling the void in the factory mount, this insert eliminates the associated slop and ensures that you're experiencing crisper shifts and a better driving experience.

Installation of this transmission mount is very simple, can be performed in minutes, and is completely reversible.
Features:

- T6-6061 Billet Aluminum Construction
- CNC-Machined In-House
- Clear Anodized Finish for Durability
- Engineered to Fill Void In Factory Transmission Mount

Another great 034 Product used on the JHM S5 are the adjustable control arms!

Introducing fully adjustable upper control arms for the B8 Audi A4-S4 and A5-S5-RS5!!!

https://jhmotorsports.com/products/pictures/034/034ms-b8-control-arms-upper-adjustable-detail.JPG

These control arms are the latest offering in the Density Line Control Arm Series from 034Motorsport. These adjustable arms are available in both Camber Correcting and Track Spec varieties:

Camber Correcting: This setup is for those who have lowered their car from OEM ride height and are looking to correct camber to factory specifications and reduce excessive inner tire wear. These arms offer 5/8" of outward adjustability from stock length and adjustable in 1/36" increments. Each 1/36" adjustment is approximately .1 degrees of camber allowing for highly accurate adjustments.

Track Spec: This setup is for those who have lowered their car from OEM ride height and are looking to have even more negative camber for better track performance. These arms are 1/8" shorter than stock and offer an additional 5/8" of inward adjustability from stock length and are adjustable in 1/36" increments. Each 1/36" adjustment is approximately .1 degrees of camber for highly accurate adjustments.

Features:
- CNC Machined Billet 6061 Construction
- Black Anodized Finish
- 034Motorsport Density Line Inner Bushings
- Aurora Spherical Bearings featuring a Teflon Race Lining
- Built in safety washer to eliminate any chance of the spherical bearing ever separating
- Arm sets ship set to factory OEM length
- No tightening creep like you get with a turn buckle
- Adjustments can be easily made by threading out an M6 head allen bolt, the pinch pin stays installed in the upright. A jam nut keeps everything tight once adjusted.
- Dust boots are now included with all adjustable upper control arms. We ship the boots uninstalled; once you have the alignment set, install the dust boots before final installation.
- Control Arms are completely rebuildable. Go back one section and select them or put the following in the search box: " Rebuild Kit for 034Motorsport Density Line Adjustable Upper Control Arms".

FITMENT:
- All B8 Chassis Audis

You've been banned from the form so many times I can't count for making unilateral offensive statements as above. You've had absolutely no experience with the Wipple kit so until you do, you are merely beating your chest and acting like a blowhard. You can dance with yourself over this topic again if you like -- I don't care -- but it will be without me. I don't even have the car anymore -- I have moved on to a more track ready platform. The S5 was great and fast as shit with the blower, but it would never have the handling or track characteristics of a GTR.

JHMotorsports is pleased to introduce a low cost, 100% Bolt On, Front BBK (Big Brake kit) solution for your B8 A4-S4 A5-S5 that uses the popular Porsche Brembo 6-Piston Caliper, also commonly known as the 19Z!

https://jhmotorsports.com/products/pictures/B8-382-BBK/JHM-S5-B8-BBK-382MM-Detail.jpg

https://jhmotorsports.com/products/pictures/B8-382-BBK/JHM-B8-382mm-BBK-detail-2.jpg

INCLUDES:
2x - JHM 2-piece Lightweight Slotted Front Rotors
2x - JHM Caliper Brackets with Mounting Hardware
2x - BRAND NEW OEM Porsche (6-piston Brembo) Calipers
2x - Stainless DOT Approved Brake Lines
1x - Set of OE Pads Brake Pads
1x - OEM Brake Pad Sensor (Driver Side Only)
1x - Liter Pentosin DOT 4 Synthetic Brake Fluid

INSTALLATION: This is a COMPLETE 100% bolt on Big Brake Kit for the B8 Chassis. This kit requires ZERO modifications, cuts, grinds, splices, etc. making installation quick and simple. NOTE: The stock Dust Shields will need to be removed for proper clearance

OEM S4-S5 Rotors vs. JHM Lightweight Rotors (A4-A5 vehicles will yield greater results)
-Rotor Weight: Stock = 23lbs(each), JHM = 24.1lbs(each) - Only 1lb heavier for a MUCH larger rotor
-Rotor Cooling Air-gap: Stock = 11.5mm(.450"), JHM = 18.5mm(.728") - LARGER for better cooling
-Rotor Cooling Center Fin Design: Stock = One Direction Airfoil (one side pumps the air from the inside out and the other side pumps the air from the outside in), JHM = Airfoil (side specific rotors that both pump the air from the inside out) - EQUAL EFFICIENCY for equal cooling
-Rotor OD: Stock = 345mm(13.6"), JHM = 382mm(15.039") - 1.43" LARGER
-Rotor Thickness: Stock = 30mm(1.18"), JHM = 34mm (1.33") - 4mm (.15") LARGER
-Bolt pattern: - SAME (fits like an OEM rotor would)

Why the Porsche Cayenne caliper? With its 6-piston design and MASSIVE brake pads it is a strong performer. Also it bolts right up to your spindles using our JHM CNC'd Caliper Brackets. All you need is the included bolts, brake lines and JHM rotors and you have a 382mm Big Brake Kit.

Outer ring specs:
We worked closely with a race brake manufacturer that supplies many NASCAR racers and a couple major brake kit companies. Due to their expertise we chose to have them build us the outer rings to our specs to fit the B8 Chassis. 12 attachment points for durability and strength.

What does that mean though? What gets replaced/upgraded?

Thanks again everyone, I haven't been on here in quite a while so I wanted to chime in.


Here is our video since it was not linked yet.

UPDATE: We also went 11.9 with a Tiptronic V8 S5 with our kit last month. So you can order those kits now as well since we had originally only released the manual transmission version. Video for these results coming soon. Last but not least we are in the middle of final testing of the intercooled version of the kit for adding to our stage 1 kit (straightforward install for existing kit owners) or buying as part of our future 1+ intercooled kit coming out soon. And yes there is the possibility of more, we try to build our kits scalable for budget and growth of the platforms.


On sale now here for Black Friday as well. -> https://jhmotorsports.com/shop/catalog/jhm-supercharger-kit-for-b8-s5-42l-fsi-v8-stage-p-3432.html


HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Will Tiptronic transmission hold stage 1+ torque and power levels? Or will it have to be upgraded?

So far with our testing with stage 1, it takes the power like a champ!

Hey there Jake! I was the PO you bought this S5 from, glad to see the great progress that came out of it. Ear to ear grin came out of me stumbling upon this thread, keep up the solid work [up]
