Don't mind all the haters, man. Nice ride[up]. But if you do end up being rather wreckless with your vehicle, then the flaming was justified. Any side shots, interior shots, and engine shots?

Also, I never heard of ATP having a CF hood. My initial thought on that hood was it was an APR unit. Which I am still convinced it is. Those cost a pretty penny, and APR claims that they don't need hood pins. Maybe why the PO never installed any. He may have gotten away with the hood never flying up, but hood pins is def a good investment. Though if that is an APR unit, which I think it is, they claim that you don't need hood pins for thier cf hood.

And you should double check on what connecting rods you have. Also, my advice is to lose the S4 badge. And what did you mean by "front upper sway bar"?

I have never used hood pins, had a cf hood on a 91 civic hatch, 2000 civic coupe and now my A4. Never had any problems.

well since it hasnt been able to leave the garage(need to get it registered the title is being mailed) ive been staring at it and fixing some little shit on it. ive noticed that alotta shit is kinda NigRigged. the engine is perfect it just needs a retune, im going to take it to autospeed. its just the little shit. the HID's work except for i just had to reconnect a wire in one of them and they were installed pretty sloppily so im going to reinstall them. theres some bolts missing to so there kinda loose. the trunk cover over the spare tire keep falling into the hole. where the pins are suppose to be he just put these silver key slot things lol. the grille i think is glued on. its all like little shit nothing major. the paint is in amazing shape it looks brand new. she just needs a bit of touching up and shell be show car status[wrench]

heres the interior and the setup. what do you guys think? is she worthy?

Seerlah
11-24-2009, 06:07 AM
Since you are in the BT club, you should get to know your car better. Having a big turbo setup would entail knowing how to keep her properly maintained. Kits such as the eliminator kits don't need much attention, as they would need the same attention as the stock turbo. But full custom ones will eventually present their issues, and you should learn how to disgnose issues correctly, or learn how to prevent them before it happens. For example, I noticed that your MAF is ghetto rigged. You could source out the proper connector and splice it in before an issue arises. With that being said, nice ride[up].

I was sitting there thinking *I wonder if this kid is Calvin from AZ*. Sure enough about 5 min. later he says.."yea...Im Calvin1.8t from Audizine". I lol'd.

He's a good kid fellas....so go easy on him. Just young, eager, and in need of some serious guidance. [wrench]

I am rather glad I purchased mine stock (PO had Neuspeed Rear Sway bar and 710n dv. dv already replaced and Neuspeed sway bar will eventually be replaced also). But it is rather nice modding it from the bottom up. Knowing that every modification to it was your own doing, and you know all the little things that come along with it.

11-24-2009, 04:39 PM
i thought about getting one with some things done but not too much.. like if i could have found one with coilovers and wheels, i would have done it, but thats hard to find as well. usually if someone has coilovers, they have more done lol so i decided to just go bone stock... it may take me longer to have it the way i want it but everything will be the exact way i wanted it to be

it could be the big black guy sensor. On a serious note isnt that a pointless question because you say what it does at the start of your question.

I could have sworn I posted in this thread for you to take your car to a mechanic whom specialises in Audi/VW for a full diagnosis. I can even recommend you to my mechanic, if you would take the trip to West Haverstraw, NY. But really, you would want your car to be fully diagnosed (shops charge around the $85 mark for this). Once you do this, you should know what would need tending to, what is broken, what can be fixed, what can be changed, etc. But make sure your mechanic is an enthusiest, because they tend to treat all cars of the VAG community like it's their own.

That S8 needs darker tint for the executive look. I would even look into having it E class registered (limo license).

Yea...I retrofitted an RNSE into the S8....works great. I love the RS6 wheel and wouldnt trade it for a D3 S8 wheel. Oh...its also running an RS6 shifter:

In that pic the tint doesnt look too dark but in real life it is. I wouldnt have tinted it that dark but I got it that way. Im not a dark tint kinda guy...even in the S8 I'd rather some high quality 35% 3M stuff over anything darker. I actually plan to remove the cheapo crap currently installed in favor of the 3M.

The S8 has been in the shop for the last 2 weeks getting a t-belt done and some other stuff. I've been rockin the touareg and, low and behold, I miss the S8. Who woulda thunk-it.

Sorry to bring this back from the dead, but where did you pick up the RS6 wheel and knob?
