Who here has a Quattro 2.8?

What after market parts have you installed? I mean Engine wize, ex: CAI or what ever...

I've been looking around and cannot find many after maket parts.

at least for my model.

Anyone?

1. "aftermarket" is one word.

2. plenty have aftermarket add ons, such as chips, exhaust, CAI's, superchargers and even some turbos.

3. Search button is your friend.

2.8 best upgrade is a supercharger :)

but intake, chip, exhaust are nice too


PS: if u need help hit me up with a PM ill send you some websites...

I'v searched for a CIA and found none so far...WTF?? i'm I not looking in the right place..lol

Supercharge involves lots of $$, I just want to do minor upgrades...exhaust, CIA...

I wanted to install a neuspeed exhaust system but was told by a reputable performance store in Montreal (rmrautosport.com) that there wasnt any cause of the automatic trany box. I found a greddy on ebay, but now im not sure if it'll fit or not.

Same thing for the CAI, was told that they don't make them for the 2.8 model which i find sucks

try a search engine, they can usually find things on the internet.

your cheap gains will be found in a K&N, headers, exhaust, and engine and trans chips. you may see an extra 30-40hp when done, and have a better power band.

but you shouldve bought the 1.8T if you wanted to mod it and see some results for cheap.

These places have intakes for our cars.

"http://www.evoms.com"
"http://www.lltek.com"
Or if you don't care about brand then I have a brand new intake I can sell you. I bought it off ebay and never used it. I bought a used LLTek one instead. The only thing is it doesn't come with a heat sheild or instructions. Or if you can wait I might be selling the LLtek one sometime soon. Thinking of trying to modify a Carbonio one to fit our cars.

as far as exhausts go you should probably do a custom one. Alot of us are going with either borla or magnaflow.

Hope this helps you out.

I've got an intake on my car, but I would like a heatshield (right now it sounds pretty cool, but I bet it's not doing a hell of a lot performance-wise...). I had considered fabbing one up myself, but after looking at it a couple times I'm not sure of the best way to approach it...

I'm also thinking of getting a chip... I know it doesn't give you a huge HP gain but I have heard it gives you noticable throttle response.

I do have a custom exhaust with the Magnaflow muffler, but since I bought it with it installed and didn't drive it with the stock exhaust setup, I don't have anything to compare it against (but it certainly does sound good).

I know lltek, I used to be their customs brooker and yes, they do have a short air intake, but not a cold air intake that goes all the way down (Like the V2 from AEM) - their parts are actualy good quality and very well done esteticaly.

They also have an exhaust, but just the muffler, not the complete exhaust line. Anyways, they're located like 2-3km away from where I live...I should just go check them out instead of just looking at the website.

As for the chip...how many hp do the 2.8 ussualy gain?

Thank you everyone[up]

bellofello
12-20-2006, 01:18 PM
yeah they have a cat back for the 2.8... I can't remember what it's called though. I think it's called the Kommand series?. No cai's, but i've seen some custom ones. If docurley wants to chime in with a picture of his custom CDA one on his old 2.8, or just search his name.

Magnaflow custom exhausts sound the best I've heard so far. I will be doing one soon.

I have the K&N 57i intake kit and it's awesome, sounds sooo good, super easy install. Probably a little better throttle response, you feel a lil in the but dyno too.

GIAC claims +10 hp/tq for the 30v. but it moves the rev limiter up to 7100. And it shifts the power band a bit so it will feel really good.

oh an greddy has an exhaust for our cars as well, it's dirt cheep on ebay, and it sounds fairly good from what I hear. It just looks like crap with that stupid tip.

Do some searching on here for some exhaust videos, I have a vid of my intake on here somewhere too. It's in the "official 2.8 video thread".

Here's a pic of my current intake set up. I have to make a heat sheild soon, but since it's winter I don't really care at this time.

i have the milltek exhaust,giac chip,and a short-ram intake. as bellofello has stated the giac chip moves the limiter to 7100, and shifts the power band. i would say it gave me around 8hp from it. the car's throttle is much much better, and its top end has opened up really well. the exhaust wont give u much gains,maybe 3hp. at most but i love how the milltek sounds. cost a grand, but i think it was worth it, nothing beats the way it looks and the quality of that exhaust. my first mod was the short-ram. u can feel a good amount of power when you do the intake. i have a k&n just like most people and im happy with it. supersprint also has headers for our cars but i called up one day and they asked 1300 for them, so i am not going w/ headers any time soon. good luck on your decisions!!! keep us posted

Mattgfx
12-20-2006, 01:58 PM
go 2.8!!! lol, bellofello can u find that cat back exhaust ?"Kommand series"


Also S4 exhaust systems i believe work with our cars too

bellofello
12-20-2006, 02:00 PM
yeah they will work. I'd like to see how one of those "true dual" exhausts like the labree (spelling?) one sounds with the 2.8.

I have the lltek catalouge and it's in there, I'll scan it if I can't find a link.

alright I found a link online, it's there PDF catalouge from 2005. My '06 catalouge is the same so.
The exhaust is $777 us. uses 2.5 inch piping, and they clain 10-12 hp gained... probably bs, but that's what they say.

bellofello
12-20-2006, 04:00 PM
damn I want those headers sooo bad, just there so friggin expensive. I could probably have someone make a set of custom ones for a fraction of the price. I wonder what our cars would sound like with headers and just turndowns. No cats or any muffling haha. That would be awesome.

12-20-2006, 07:09 PM
The prices on their site are USD, but since you live close I dunno. The intake will be nice, I'd still reccomend going custom. You could get it done for cheeper and it will sound better. Go with a magnaflow muffler (something like the 14816) of ebay, $120 (us though), then like $200 or something like that for the labour and piping at your friendly muffler shop.

That intake is a nice set up.

Mattgfx

Thanks Neter, but what is that is that the tube that use to attach to the bottom of the stock air box. If so why would you put a breather on that I just pulled that tube out there is no use for it after you remove the stock air box.

are those the "cheap ebay" ones that supposadly have poor build quality? are they a direct fit on a 2001 a4? i really really really like the looks of those, especially on silver, but enough people have talked down about them that has discouraged me so far.

definately post something when yur done and let us know how they look and how the install went.

The ones I got for my BMW where great quality build, no condensation and looked just amazing. I got these ones from the same guy, so if anything, i'll just send them back. I will take a pic and post after, black on black should look nice specialy after I also install the kamei badgeless grill.

Does the intake really add any power?? I am just gonna swap in a K&N panel filter and mod the stock box a bit. Anyone have any dyno numbers or is it all just for the sound of intake?

bellofello
12-21-2006, 05:25 PM
I think it adds maybe 1-3 hp, it shifts the power band slightly, looks better, sounds 10000% better, and gives you some butt dyno numbers, oh and better throttle response and fuel milage.

That little filter is for the Crank Case Breather Hose.

neter
12-21-2006, 07:08 PM
combined with a good exhaust line 6hp at the max???

bellofello
12-21-2006, 07:25 PM
I dunno lltek claims 10-12 hp gain just from their exhaust. I'd say maybee 8-10 combined.

btw, those halo's look awesome. How is the lighting compared to an hid system? brighter, dimmer? I love the look.

black00A4
12-21-2006, 08:54 PM
I got the chormed halo's on my car they look amazing, makes it look newer than 2000 sorta like the new a4's. I put an HID kit and its very nice, output is perfect. For the money u cant go worng.

bellofello
12-21-2006, 09:16 PM
how much are they, I might look into a set instead of going with the ebay depo's.

If you don't mind saying how much you paid after the HID's, delivery, taxes, duties, shipping, etc...

Do you have any pictures of how they look?

i was thinking of fabing something upp for it but i can't really find the right size oval tubing coupler or a shop that will bend the stuff for me... looks like i will have to put up with it...

I'd go cheap for an auto because they sound weird. I dunno maybe ok in tip mode. But a guy with a Jetta at my school had an exhaust on an auto and it just kinda sounded like someone moaning really loud in different pitches lol.

go for just magnaflow muffler with keeping your stock piping and mid muffler. It will remain quiet when just driving around but when you stomp it, the sound comes to life. Also it's going to be the cheepest to do. Probably $200 bucks or so. Maybe 250.

i have the ebay halo projector headlights and after running them for a few months they're not too bad, not near HID, but better than my stock 99 headlights. as far as lighting goes i replaced the shitty bulbs they send you with silverstars, much better. as far as condensation goes, i sealed it with clear silicone and i get some condensation if it rains for a few days straight or if i go through a high powered car wash. but normally they're fine. all in all i like them, they look cool and were a cheap upgrade from the shitty 99 headlights.

http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l242/ReadTheseNikes/PIXX001.jpg


also, techtonics tuning does a full custom exhaust for our cars, its custom piping with borla mid muffler and muffler. the website shows a single tipped muffler but i called them and he sent me this pic of the dual tip muffler they offer.

looks good bigair, your colour is awesome.

I think that the guy who was making all those 1.8 heat sheilds said he could make one for the 2.8 as long as he had a car to base it off of. If you're close to him you should meet up so he can make one.

I hate that coolant expansion tank. Mines all yellow and gross too. I've been thinking of getting one of those universal billet ones for a while now.

I see that you re-used the stock pipe for the cold air. I've been meaning to change mine back and using the one that K&#37;N provided to come up from the bumper or something.

intake, port and polish your throttle body (easy DIY, increases throttle response), and a nice exhaust...thats pretty much it besides full motor builds or superchargers.

just go for looks and a decent suspension setup.

good luck with the car!

intake is not worth the money. Spend $20 and run 1" or bigger hose down to your lower bumper grill. This is very common on passatworld.com and is debated to work better than an aftermarket intake. I had two 1.25" hoses running into my lower airbox.

exhaust will yield no horsepower gains unless you purchase the $1000 supersprint headers that require pulling the engine to install. This probably puts it out of your price range.

What I would:
modify the airbox $20
GIAC chip: $300 at awetuning
OBX power pulley set (3 pieces, significant gains throughout power band) $150 on ebay
electric fan kit: $100 if diy kit from thefanguy.com, or $200 from awetuning

my guess is an easy 20hp can be gained from them, maybe even 30. You should see the dyno for the pulley set. OBX makes a replica of the unorthodox racing set.

you dont have to pull the engine to install headers. that said, they arent worth the $1000 unless you are boosting the engine. exhausts for the 2.8 are more about sound then anything else. you will see gains with a cat back system, but they will be in the range of 10 hp or less on an otherwise stock engine. there is no real sense in just porting and polishing the throttle body unless by port you mean boring out and installing a larger butterfly.

I know I might get flamed for this but o well... ebay motors has a great CHEAP CAI I use to have on my 2.8. The only thing I could say I noticed was a better throttle response and a bit better on top. I also had the GIAC chip, short shifter, and bigger MAF which all complimented each other. I do have a bunch of this stuff for sale if your interested. PM for details....
Kamei grill, short shifter, a bunch of stock plastics(engine cover, bumper pieces, airbox) and bigger MAF. The Chip went with the car after I totaled it, (didnt want to mess the ECU up, felt bad), but I have the stock chip if you want to figure out how to load a new ECU map on to it!!!!

O and yea greddy makes the exhaust for the 2.8. never liked the exhaust tips tho. Brullen and Milltek both also make catback systems but are very expensive. Best bet would be to buy a nice borla muffler and get a custom exhaust done up. Cheaper overall than buying a pre fab one.
ok im done....

Really? Know two people with headers on the 2.8, one with Passat and another with A4, and both said the engine had to be pulled to install. I'll have to see what my Bentley says when I get home.

I have pulled the EM out of 12v's without having to pull the motor. I assume they would be nearly the same.

01-03-2007, 08:44 PM
let me rephrase my statement. The engine needs to be lifted out of the engine bay to install the headers. It is not the stock manifolds that is the problem, it is the installation of the supersprint headers.

basically i want better sound, i know its not going to do much in the performace department. for those of you who have one, does it hurt the engine to have it installed without a heat sheild? (i'm assuming it doesnt come with one...and i dont know where i'd get one just yet)

Also, I really want some chrome exhaust tips to make the rear of my car look nicer. I guess i could get a new muffler for some sound too...but is it possible to just buy tips relatively cheap? Bigair, in your sig it states "Two 3" exhaust tips"...can you tell me where you got them.

Hey I have the K&N 57-0515, it sounds incredible comparted to the stock sound of the car. I don't think it really "hurts" the motor without a sheild, you'll lose some hp (like -1hp or something tiny like that) once you get going and your motor heats up. I don't think it's that bad for us because we don't have turbos to really heat up the air TOO much.

Just get a muffler if you want it to look and sound better. Magnaflow 14816 is my choice.

Gutted my cats and getting strait pipes put in so it sounds better (it just resinates in the expansion chamber)...did an APR snub mount...i guess it was worth the money, no more shifter jump when I let off the throttle, and more power to the ground, got the same headlights but in silver, gonna replace them when I get $$ for E-codes

and the B&M short shifter is nice...definatly worth the coin...other mods as well, but thats pretty much it for performance...for the most part

anyone have a sound clip of what a stock 2.8 with a K&N intake and the magnaflow 14816 would sound like? or what the muffler would sound like without the intake?


also, is there a guard so that if water splashes up it doesnt soak the intake? and has anyone had problems with too much cold air bogging the engine in cold weather at low rpms?

bellofello
01-08-2007, 05:46 PM
The sounds of the exhaust and intake wouldn't have an effect on each other I don't think.

I've been driving around in the cold for a while and it feels fine, I think it's close enough to the header to keep too much cold air from getting to the filter. Also driven in the rain lots of times, no problems. It's too high up in the engine bay to be effected by water.

Here's a clip that I have that compares stock revs vs. intake revs. Just try to ignore the music and stuff, kind of a joke.

I dunno, mine does "click" I think thats just the initial sucking of the air. My old neighbours MK4 VR6 Jetta with an AEM CAI did it too.

i ordered it from this site:

http://www.performancepeddler.com/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=KN57-0515


i ordered it on tuesday at 2:30pm EST, and immediately after ordering i got an e-mail (seemed automated due to timing) saying that the product was not in their usual michigan warehouse and had to be transported from another warehouse....it assured me that the product would be shipped in 1-2 business days, and if i had any questions/concerns i could contact them, etc...

i was a little mad because it says its available right on the site and i wanted it as fast as possible to install it over the weekend....but for the price and the free shipping i figure it wont kill me to wait a few more days.

its 2:40pm EST on wednesday right now and i havent gotten the e-mail saying it has been shipped yet.

Clean engine bay? hahaha... i wish! [up]

It is Universal, but what I did was use the adapter from my old evoms intake (the adapter the screws to the MAF - then a sleeve adapter was also needed to mount the K&N to the evoms adapter [wrench]

I think the product is great, and it sounds VERY mean [hail]

I got mine very shortly after release and I don't have any complaints. They are new-ish still so hardly anyone stocks them, I was lucky to have mine shipped the next day since a customer cancelled their order @ AJ-USA in San Diego (www.ajusa.com) They offer low prices and FREE shipping.

Brad or Gerard would be the ones to talk to, they are for sure members on SocalEuro so they're cool guys with a performance background.

the install wasnt too bad, so far no problems....car ran really smooth, no CELs or anything weird....the air was pretty damn cold tonight (~15*F) and it was perfect....

it will help the engine breathe better....i mean its an intake, not a supercharger...so its nothing to go run to the dyno with. HP gains? minimal if any 2-4 i'd say....but who would even notice that.

i just got it because it was a good deal, and i liked the idea of the engine getting all that unrestricted air.

When you hold first and second out it sounds nice....then you hit 3rd and bring that up to about 4k - 4.5k RPM and you are cruising in the 60s.....its got a nice deep roar.

man i know to some people here something like an intake might not mean that much...some people are experienced tuners and shit....but i have a new love for my car. i think basically im driving it harder now because the roar i get when the rpms are higher and the feeling of it just pulling harder is awesome...and it just makes me love/appreciate my car so much. i wouldnt trade my audi for some cheaper grade car that is 12 second car (ie modded civic) because i like the prestige behind the audi name.


anyway...i bought my car about a year and a half ago, it's my first car. to be honest, i wasnt looking for an audi...i loved the way B5s looked but always thought they would be out of my price range. i got a real good deal on my 98...so i bought it from a family who was getting ready to move overseas. It had 112k on the clock but it ran strong. I had to replace the rack/pinion steering because there was a PS fluid leak that caused the rack to burn out...but other than that *knock on wood*...the car has been a dream. i'm a student right now so in 1.5 years i put like 8-9k on it and its at like 120xxxk right now. my only gripe about the car is its exterior condition. from a distance and in pictures it looks real nice....but up close there are a lot of dings, little scratches, etc. It was driven by a woman, and not to be critical, but im sure she just parked it wherever at the supermarket and threw stuff on the trunk that might have scratched it or wahtever.

my dad advised me when i bought it to look past that exterior stuff...it was 8 years old and surprisingly the interior was immaculate...seats in real nice condition for a car that age. he said as long as mechanically it was strong...nicks and scratches are just part of 8 years of driving. well i know my B5 isnt a 07 RS4 or an M3...but its a real special car to me. I'd like to spend a little more money on some rims and other exterior mods...but the nicks and scratches make me wonder if its worth it.

if i had my car detailed/buffed...you guys think theres anyway the surface scratches could be buffed out? is there any hope? repainting the car is not an option...half the people that see my car probably only see 5&#37; of the exterior stuff...but i see them all. i dont want to do anything drastic...just looked for some ideas to maybe make it better

I have the same issue, my car also has some scuffs and little bump that for some reason i see but no one elso does. Painting is pretty expessive, was quoted 5k for all fresh paint, which i will not do. As for the scuffs, there is always touch ups and buffing. The bump, thats a bit more expenssive..was quoted between $200 and $300 each...I said F&#37;$# it...can't barely see them anyways.
Just look out for rust..thats it and keep the car clean.

if i had my car detailed/buffed...you guys think theres anyway the surface scratches could be buffed out?

lol the thing about not looking for a B5 was EXACTLY what happened to me. I was looking for a Jetta VR6, and realized wow I can get an a4 with a v6 for about the same price with awd and it's overall a better car.

As for the buffing, I'd take it to a bodyshop and get them to fully polish the car and detail it, that should take out a lot of it. Or just go get a quote and see what can be buffed out.

Spark plugs.... not sure what the reccomended ones are. I want to change my plugs/wires in one shot soon too.

There is a man named Mance Etheredge on the AudiWorld 80/90 Forum from Denver who makes custom mods for the 12v. His screen name is 1PissedOff90.
I have done almost all of Mance’s mods on my 12v.
Following is a dated list of them:
7/24/03 - Installed Mance’s Cold Air Induction System & Velocity Stack (Also took out MAF screen). Seems to have more power between shifts, revs easier, and more power in the upper RPM ranges.
9/13/03 - Installed Mance’s Stage 3 MAF & Stage 2 Hose Kit. Better RPM response and seems to be louder. That slight hesitation also seems to be smaller at the shift points.
12/7/03 - Rebuilt heads, ported & polished and match port all gaskets to heads(both intake and exhaust). Installed A/C Delco Rapid Fire #9's.
3/22/04 - Just purchased a used TB for a 1995 A6Q AT from Pam’s Auto in MN for $75.00. I will send this in to Mance as a core charge to purchase the XTB ‘Special TB’: 707 CFM.
Part # B5 048 078 063P.
3/26/04 - Replaced regular VS with Stage 3 Velocity Stack (S3 VS).
4/8/04 - Installed Mance’s rubber O-Ring in the orifice of the S3 MAF (I put in the largest diameter as per his instructions).
8/6/04-Ported and polished my Intake Manifold, had it installed along with the XTB ‘Special TB’
My own estimate on the HP gains would be somewhere between 25-50.
4/8/05 - Solid Strut Mounts installed.
7/9/05 - Generation 2 Strut Bar & Solid Strut Dust Caps.
5/18/06 - Upgraded to 200 TQ Master Cylinder -
30-40&#37; larger than what replaced it. Much better stopping power but with less pedal pressure. A Mance suggested upgrade.

Mance is your best bet on mods for the 12v. He sells direct via his email. He can be reached at salinas212@aol.com
You must put Audi in the Subject Line or you will get deleted. He gets something like 200+ emails/day.
Hope this gives you some idea of what is available.
Here is his web site:

See "My Gallery Images" to the left to see some of his work. BTW, it is flawless.

Taking the screen out makes the air pathway smoother. Any obstruction(like the screen, the accordian hose, etc) disturbs the air and thus robs us of potential HP & gas milage. In the induction side of the engine, we want to make that air pathway as smooth as possible from the moment it enters the air box until it enters the cylinder. My air box has those internal plastic members taken out, I put in a Velocity Stack in the air box where the air enters the MAF. My MAF sampler tube has been eliminated (by Mance BTW), I purchased a silicone hose kit from Mance and finally I had Mance bore out my TB so it now draws 707CFM as compared to stock 308CFM.
I have more HP and my gas milage has gotten slightly better. From 3/17/04 to 7/20/04 I got 14% better gas milage, which was after installation of all the aformentioned items.

black00A4
01-23-2007, 04:40 PM
I was just curious has anyone tried making a TB spacer? or what about phoenlic or howere you spell it plastic spacers for the intake manifold. These mods help keep intake temps down so they should help alittle. Since im coming to Audi's after driving a subaru there was also another popular mod which was by passing the coolant that goes into the TB, I'm not sure if it is at all possible with our cars but if anyone who understands these motors can chime in that would be a bonus. With all the mods I mentioned above and a nice intake, chip and exhaust the V6 should be very fun to drive.

bellofello

4AudiQ, yeah with a velocity stack and all that stuff you mentioned of course it would make a diference. I was just talking about the screen itself wouldn't make much of a difference with no other supporting modifications.

Here is the velocity stack. It goes in the stock filter housing downstream from the OEM filter. Take out your filter and you'll be able to see where this is. BTW, the OEM filters are good.

i just got my magnaflow muffler installed at my local meineke and with the resonator left on, i can barely tell the muffler is even there...

any suggestions on changing the 2.25 to 2.5 piping and eliminating the resonator running a straight pipe...in addition, at the y, do i still need to ugrade to 2.25 (it's 2.00 right now and seems pretty tight)...i would like to gain as much performance and sound with this mod and looking for an intake as well...

try a 2.5in pipe from the cat back. resonators only muffler the sound more, if you take it off it will be louder but you wont gain any power.

I wouldn't do a 2.5" with a magnaflow unless the magnaflow has a 2.5" inlet. Just take the resonator off. See if you can get them to do a y pipe that goes into a 2.25 instead of 2". That would make it grumble nicely.

01-30-2007, 05:41 AM
sorry for the late response guys, actually that was my plan, to do 2.25 at the y-pipe then to 2.5 the rest of the way minus the resonator. (the sound clip for cat back minus the resonator on a magnaflow would help out a lot!). i was just doing it in pieces as my funds was not there cuz i'm leaving for vail tomorrow!! does this sound right tho $300 total for the entire piping cat-back? Meineke was cool and broke it out in pieces for me so to install the muffler keeping the 2.25 after the resonator $80, then he'll eliminate the resonator (straight pipe) and increase to 2.5 if i wanted to for an extra $60, then if I wanted to do the y an extra $160 so total of $300 and still cheaper than the pre-fabs. Does this sound fair tho?

in addition, at the y it looked tight for 2.25, but we think it'll fit and the inlet should accomodate the 2.5 if i remember it right. i forget which model, but it has the dual 3" tips...

thanks guys...i'll post pics as i slowly upgrade

bellofello
01-30-2007, 06:19 AM
The only thing I'd be shying away from 2.5" is because the inlet of the muffler is only 2.25" so you would have a bottleneck at the end of the exhaust. But if you're set on it why not do a 2.5" y-pipe?

bballfanatic
01-30-2007, 10:15 AM
it just looked tight under there the way the stock y fits in it's molded space...but i guess if milltek does 2.75, then i'll do 2.5 cat back. i just wanted to be a little consistent as well with the y currently 2" going into 2.25 back, thought the next upgrade would be to fit the 2.25 to 2.5...

how does the pricing sound?? decent?

it's always good to know the piping is upgraded should further plans come into works...as far as over kill, it would still assist with better breathing, correct?

if it's absolutely wortheless, then i'll do 2.25 cat back, but since i was paying to get it done, might as well get the best of both worlds...

i might be wrong tho...Bello: would the bottle neck to the muffler pose any issues if that were the case?

thanks for the feedback...i won't be getting it done til i get back any way so this helps!!

bellofello
01-30-2007, 02:01 PM
I don't think it would hurt anything, just it would slow down airflow and maybe loose a tad of hp at top end? I dunno I think it would be like blowing into a straw with one end a little smaller than the other.

I don't think the 2.5" piping would be absolutly worthless, maybee loose a tiny bit of tq but gain some high end hp. It would also be louder than 2.25 if that's what you want.

By tad and tiny, I'm talking +/- 1hp I think.

Calabria

short-throw (open, anything better than stock and can handle my driving!)

17's (pref with tires and prob around the $300 range <so prob local and your old rs4's, etc>)

suspension (shocks and springs-pref the bilstein/h&r setup, but as even of a drop as possible)

grill (still debating which one i'll like, so send pics of what you got)

trunk lip (can the b6 lip, fit on our cars? i like the wider lip as opposed to the m3 style)

radio (since i don't have my code and refuse to pay, anything outside of my stock will do-per chance, any audi dealers in the house willing to give a poor boy his code?)

stock fogs to fit in the grill or aftermarket that fits as well...

1 piece headlights...

i plan on debadging once i get back from colorado...on a side note: if anyone is in the vail/beavercreek area, give me a shout!! i'm stoked as i'm leaving in a couple of hours...may need tips on some hot spots in the area...

$300 sounds pretty alright for all the piping and stuff. Just make sure it's a good job, and installed so it looks straight and all, and I'm sure you'll like it.

bballfanatic,

Out of your list, i would first go with the big items like suspension and wheels first (in that order). these will make the biggest difference.

if you're on a tight budget and want a short shifter, than i would recommend the ebay b&m knock off. i have it and it works great.

Regarding suspension, are you sport or non-sport right now?

Regarding wheels/tires, you're a little low on you price there. unless you find a set that's all beat to hell.

Also, i don't have fogs, but i do have these hella daytime running lights that look pretty good. I've received quite a few compliments on them. I recently switched to oem fogs and I would be willing to sell them if you're interested. Here's a pic. Since this picture, I have added a yellow film to them, but that can be removed easily.

well, i've been coming here and reading the posts but didnt have anything to say...besides that im still pissed that the Remus didnt fir my car.

I also lost my second job which realy pissed me off...brought me down $2500 a month, so less cash to spend on the car.

Well, i'll still keep you guy's posted on what i'll be modding on the car...

I'm also happy that the thread I created is growing with valuable info day after day.

Have a good day guys

PS: I have a Remus exhaust for sale. If im not mistaken, it would fit a non automatic audi. The inlet is in the centre and I beleive the name is "Twin Turbo"

Here is a pic

bello: same here, but i log on sporadically...i wish i could keep az as my homepage at work!!

props to az and it's members! one of my better forums with down to earth kats willing to share advice no matter newb or vet...

jbrentd: i'm running non-sport right now...all my cars are slightly modded so i mainly do the stance first, then the shoes...i was bidding on the bilstein/h&r set up on ebay but lost out and also came across an oem rs4 set here in jersey with tires for $300, but had my trip coming up so for the longshot, hoping it'll still be around when i get back (if i still have money to spend)...

the fogs look clean also...may be a possibility, let me pm you when i get back...thanks for the heads up on the short-shifter, but do you recall the exact brand on ebay??

i'm out!! keep this thread moving...i had a couple quick questions on my last post with the laundry list so any responses to that would be cool...

have a great week!!

One cheap way to lower your ride is to find some low mileage used oem sport shocks and springs. i found some for around $150 shipped. most will tell you it's not worth it, but that's what i did. here's a befoe and after pic. It's not "slammed', but that's not what i wanted. if you're a 12v, the 1.8T sport setup will work since the 12v is nearly the same weight as the 1.8T.

neter, what would you want for the Remus? I'm non-auto but not sure what difference that would make with the axle back remus fitment.

neter
01-31-2007, 01:06 PM
im asking $320cnd

As for fitment I wouldn't know, all I can say it that the inlet on my OEM exhaust is on the corner and the Remus one is in the centre. Besides that it was ok.

that doesn't matter. have the muffler shop put in an S shaped piece. most shops bend their own stuff. my old muffler had an inlet on the passenger side too.

so who on here ever had a custom down-pipe made,and if not where did you get your testpipes done at? i need to get a full exhuast going on my car!!!

01-31-2007, 05:54 PM
I don't think anyone makes an actuall "test pipe" for our cars, just get the muff shop to put in a straight pipe instead and clear the CEL with vag

lol..you don't understand..there's like 5mm between the back of the muffler and the sway bar...there is not space to bend anything. And im not cutting a remus exhaust.

It's a great price concidering the real value of it. It's not that i want to make money, but just the point that I want to sell it to get one that would fit.

I based myself on the actual price and the ebay prices.

yea just a ball park price range,and does any one have it done. what gains if any would i be looking at?

bellofello
02-01-2007, 06:45 AM
I don't think it would cost much extra if there already cutting down the stock bits behind the cats. Maybee and extra 20 bucks or something? As for gains, I think minimal if any. It would be more of a sound gain, maybee some hp at the top of the rev range.

Hey guys, I am new to posting on the AZ forums, but have read a lot. I work in the composites field and want to make some custom carbon fiber parts. I noticed a lot of interest in the 2.8L intakes, seeing that I have a 2001 2.8L Q I have the car to get dimensions and make prototypes. I would like to get a feeler for interest in CF intakes or just heat shields since a lot of you have you intakes, but no HS, let me know...

I might do a heat shield or something from you if I end up not getting an s4

OH two more things:
-Cover for the coolant expansion tank with opening so you can read the level.
-and all the motor covers in cf

oh yeah, I'm broke so if you want you can sponsor me and I'll rep your name [;)]

wondering how an exhaust will sound on a auto. auto as that drown between shifts unlike manual, dont know how bad the drown is with a exhaust though. anyone have a vid. of a 2.8 auto w/exhaust?

bellofello
02-06-2007, 01:13 PM
there was one on putfile of a greddy g2 on a 2.8 tip. The sound only really gets nice and lout at 4500-6000rpm and WOT, and it's more of an agressive sound, so it wouldn't sound too "moany" on a 2.8 I don't think like a 4 cylinder would.

can't find the vid on putfile but it was nice.

Calabria
02-07-2007, 06:08 PM
na, i no whata 2.8 sounds like already, just wondering how its sounds with a auto tranny. the autos as that moan between shifts unlike the manual.

bellofello
02-07-2007, 07:29 PM
yeah I know, the video was an auto car. I was saying an exhaust on a 4cyl auto car sounds moany, where an exhaust on our v6s when auto sounds alright.
