My name is Tommy, I drive a '01.5 Hibiscus A4 QMS. For a short run-down I had APR stock/93/race/valet then my motor blew (no way related to APR, I think I was an oil sludge victim). In the process I wanted more power so decided on the ATP GT28RS with Mika tuned software. Thing pulls like a mother and I'm so glad I went big turbo.

My older brother is on here as KraftwerkB6 with an MTM Stage 3 car, which is part of the reason I decided on the GT28, I had enough of losing to him. That all changed with the current setup. Anyway here's a few pics. All stock outside, hopefully will change with some new wheels soon.

Before new turbo.

With my brother's car.

After I got suspension (pics above are post-susp. as well) not much of a drop...

Sitting at the shop after motor blew.

New motor and kit. There is a heat shield surrounding the intake now haha.


-ATP GT28RS kit with ATP/Mika tune
-550cc RC injectors
-3" DP
-EVO motorsports FMIC
-AWE/Borla DP-back (need bigger now!)
-AWE center vent gauge
-AWE stg3 clutch & flywheel
-Bilstein shocks/H&R springs

Mika tuned...[:(]

I know many people are wary of ATP's kits/software. But *so far* I have had minimal problems with the kit. It's not perfect, no tuning is, the closest I've seen to that is my brother's MTM software. It runs a little rich and has random misfires, but I had that with my APR chip so what are you to do...

Thanks for the kind words. I do love the sleeper look, but mainly because I don't like many of the body mods for B5's unless you choose S/RS4 OEM parts. If I had more cash things would probably be different, but a brand new 1.8T and turbo kit cost a pretty penny. I'm looking into 18" BBS CHs or B5 RS4 or B7 RS4 reps.

The Hibiscus pearl effect sets it off, it really is a great and classy color in person. Most people have the typical "wtf" expression when I come screaming by at 25psi.

That is awesome! A full gt28rs is awesome. Love the car man. The BT A4 population is steadily growing. Welcome to the forum man.

hahaha sleeper. that is sick!!

The funniest part is while I'm living on campus, my dad daily drives my A4 because he doesn't want to put miles on his precious Z4... and he is in no way, shape, or form a car guy. He does like watching the boost gauge, he goes "You have to be careful driving this, it makes alot of boost!". He will learn in due time...

BAHHA dads such a funny person to be driving your car but hey atleast someone gets to. Too bad he does not go around town beating up on people with it aha.
Nice to see you on bro, peace

nice color[;)] and welcome to the forums. I would suggest you get ctapp or unitronic software though. a car with mika just went kaboom, and i would hate to see that happen to your car.

02-21-2007, 04:59 PM
