    B7 S4's Boosted Future

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Im looking to turbo my B7 in the future, maybe even by the time next semester starts this fall.
    Im not looking to make a crazy amount of power and I'd like to keep my costs to a minimum.

    Any suggestions for parts/setup with stock internals?

    Be careful what you wish for... but go for it. Curious what the final $$$ might be. $$/Hp, you know.

    Well the twinscroll setup was under 4k in parts so it won't be too bad.

    If theres a reasonable priced turbo kit, i would buy one, but will a lot of things be mounted under the chassis?

    Care to go into detail? Also, what would the pros/cons of this setup compared to supercharging? I know the general difference but I don't know the difference in performance and reliability on an S4.

    I'd like to... but alas, I'm only a novice with little experience in the vast world of working on cars.
    Would it be possible for a noob with the right tools and knowledge (or at least access to YouTube and Audizine) to accomplish this himself?

    Haven't welded much in my life (only 19) but I can practice as much as I want at my college.

    So they need some work but Im willing to put in the time.
