Just performed an oil change and added a quart of sludge removal from a company called CRC. Didn't note anything unusual draining from pan. I've beeen using synthetic-Mobil One for a long time. Something has changed, or, seems to have chnaged. Raced my buddies Acura RSX-S and simply left him in another county. He amiled me and said "guess your car isn't running in limp mode anymore" [:D] Still running stock turbo - boosted of course - and not many other mods to the engine itself except of course the SPEC stage II. One change I've done that is noteworthy. I went back to the original stock wheels and tires. I got tired of feeling like I'm driving a tank!

Who out there has more miles than I on thier turbo? How long do these things last [up]

hmmm did you lauch? cuase from a roll im pretty sure he would have took you. I was coming home from a friends house this summer and raced one, neither of us launched but both punched it at the same time and i beat him to 60, but he was gaining on me. I dont know if he had any engine mods all i know was he had a screen and that adds 20hp.

oh and i had borla ko4 and regular programming and stock clutch

It wasn't close. I know he's got a cold air intake system. It was from a rolling start, not a launch. I wonder if my wheel/tire package was robbing me a precious HP? [race] . I rarely race anyone. I'm an old guy [:D] I have raced 2 S4's and beat them both - barley. I 've raced a TT on the freeway and beat him to 135. Is this normal behavior for my level of tune? Maybe my Audi is finely breaking in [:D]

What else has been done? I belive the record for the 1.8t with the K03 was 268hp but he was running all times on stuff ie... meth injection, 35psi boost

Your turbo will last a long, long time, if its taken care off, and would have a really short life span if not, the mileage is not much of the eqauaion about how long the turbo will last.

I'm chipped from the very beginning April 2000. K & N air filter. Big difference was losing the 5000lb $800 stock flywheel for the SPEC stage II. Why oh why did Audi do that... After that change motor revs like crazy and it shifts like a normal car, that is, not waiting for the motor to slow down enough for smooth engagement [up] Nuespeed exhaust - that helped but a little noisy for my stereo install. N710 = no help. Hsport sway bars. Very nice kit! Eibach spings and Koni shocks set to 7. Alignment pereformed via my eyes..

No one touches my car. If I can find a way to mount and dismount my tires, I would do that too [wrench] Every so called mechanic who's touched my car from day 1 of 7 years has either intentionally (dealer) effed it up, or couldn't wrench thier way out of a milk carton.

Mitsu has a completely rebuilt 4G61. I need a exhaust mani and a aftermarket turbo. 275K miles!

Although my A4 Avant only has 124k the 2001 S4 Avant I drove as a company car now has 192k miles and is going strong. My old 94 Jetta VR6 was an autocross contender at 260k miles and was daily driven by my neighbor's daughter until 299,900 miles.

nice. Go with a small 16g on that, it'll add some good mid-high punch on that. Im droping in a .20+ 4g63 in my Laser *dr. evil finger quotations* this weekend with a big 16g, should be pushing 19-22psi at 350whp

These audi's arent bad. Im still planning to keep this one a few more years and hope to hit 300k without any problems.

35psi from a K03? LOL now that is funny.

I made 250hp on a K03 running 20psi on 104 octane, FMIC, CAI and 2.5" exhaust. This setup ran 14.290 at 97mph.

How old are you? What is wrong with being old, I am 39 and go racing every chance I can.

I think this is the same car
Here a link he ran 12.2 on a 1/4 has the video posted in the tread, he posted another thread where it was dynoed at 268 awhp with a K03, and said he was spiking at 35psi and holding 28psi(something to do with meth/h2o allowing it) I will try to find that too

there some guys on vortex running 28psi on the k03S with meth injection etc, for 258+whp, its front wheel drive but still impressive none the less

I dont know how long a K03 would last spinning @ 4 trillion rpms but they claim it was done
I think that link was a S4, I will find that A4 though

That would be a post from Jason in Norcal which has a APR stage 3.


Running meth as fuel isn't going to increase the boost level, now if he is spraying the meth/h20 into the IC pipe or before the turbo the PSI he gets on the gauge has nothing to do with the amount of boost the turbo is running at since the added element of fluid increases pressure readings when it takes up space inside the manifold. Just like you end up with more back pressure with a smaller exhaust and the same results would happen if you made the intake manifold half the size.
