I am going to do my best to document most of the changes that have been made since I bought the car until present day, leading up to plans for an engine build.

bought the car in July 2010 with 65k miles on it.

http://i1189.photobucket.com/albums/z424/fordyoz1/1stdaywithaudi.jpg

became obsessed with it, joined the forums, and never looked back.

--First mod was going APR Stage 1 in May 2011
--put on ST Coilovers in June 2011
--put on 034 HFC and Stasis Exhaust and went APR Stage 2 at Waterfest 2011
--installed Autospeed Performance (www.autospeed.us) upgraded HPFP and went APR Stage 2+ in October 2011

--got the RAI treatment in summer of 2012, had Maestro, Boost Manager Plus, and RAI FMIC installed.

Dyno'd APR Stage 2+ vs. Maestro Stage 2 Base file
Graph: dotted lines are APR Stage 2+, solid line is Maestro Stage 2 base
APR Stage 2+ = 184.2 whp and 224.5 wtq
Maestro Stage 2 base = 197.2 whp and 229.9 wtq

13whp gain and 5.4wtq gain

http://i1189.photobucket.com/albums/z424/fordyoz1/615226_418383791536618_1434257204_o.jpg

Then RAI tweaked the Maestro Stage 2 Base file (dotted lines is Maestro Stage 2 revised, solid line is APR Stage 2+)

Most recently, bought the car to RAI to let them begin developing a new turbo kit for the B7 A4, their "Red Label Kit".
--Borg Warner EFR 6758 .64 a/r
--RS4 Injectors
--Red Label log style manifold
--RAI red label kit downpipe
--RAI intake

DO Tell!!!!!

On another note, why didn't you go with Autospeed initially since they are so close? I know they do OTS tunes and custom tunes. Being 15mins away, that seems like it would have been an easy choice. Of course you made the right choice going with RAI, I'm just curious.

internals ofcourse ;)

I went with RAI because I bought my BM+ from them, and wanted them to install it since they have experience with it. Added a few more things while it was down there for the BM+ install, liked the work they did, established a relationship, and wanted them to continue it. Plus, Autospeed is still only doing GT builds, as far as I know they haven't moved on to GTX yet. RAI seems to stay up with the latest offerings, they are active in the community, they push the envelope, they keep us updated, and they keep us informed. No disrespect to Mark or the guys at Autospeed, I have always been pleased with their work, but who knows what the fuck they are doing, half the people here have never even heard of them, they have no online presence at all. They could be doing ground breaking shit, but how would we know?

When you install a new variator kit, do you pull and picture the magnet wheel? If so, what replacement bolts do you use?

picking this up today. I need to figure out my fuel pump when i get it back home. They were getting fuel cuts when tuning my car. I have an Autospeed Performance fuel pump on the car. It had been fine for Stage 2++ but i guess its not handling the new turbo very well. They had an HPFPUpgrade Stage 2 pump in the shop and put that on, and the cuts went away. I am going to have Autospeed check out the pump when I drive it back...hopefully they will replace it.

10-26-2012, 08:54 AM
i will probably end up going to an HPFPUpgrade st 2 pump. I just bought this Autospeed one not even a year ago and they told me it supports up to 500whp...its the same pump that is on Eastwick's car. I just want them to check it out and possibly replace it before i go spending money on a new one. crossing my fingers that they warranty it.

Get them to warranty it, sell it. Then buy a StgII pump....

thanks man. from what ive been told, the EFR will spool a bit quicker, but as dan said the GTX will make some more power. Its a very fun car to drive around. The best part is that I still have quite a bit of room to play with the tune once I get rods. so glad that i bought maestro.

I am not going to go as crazy as you or most of the other guys on here. Im still learning as I go and I dont want to get in too deep too fast. Ill do rods to give me peace of mind eventually, but I would imagine the build would stop around there (at least for a little while).

Just think.... You install rods, what's left?

BMP ... Check
Maestro ... Check
Bad ass turbo setup ... Check
Great FMIC ... Check

After a rod install, all you got to do is pop in a larger meth nozzle, and crank it up until it doesn't go up anymore. Lol

Dan[FN]6262
10-31-2012, 09:16 PM
Hell no. Stock will be fine. As quickly as that turbo spools up you can easily operate in the stock rev range. No need to build the head or go crazy.

And a fluidampr is always a good idea, even on a stock engine.

lol how the hell am i supposed to know that. can you elaborate some more?

drumnjuny
11-05-2012, 02:01 PM
here's what im thinking.... the whistle is due to the last bit of compression being released from the turbo housing. so basically when its releasing a lot of pressure, the DV is open a lot, so the whoosh noise is there. but then at the end of its pressure release its barely open so its more of a whistle. the whistle is fast air through a small area causing vibration of metal somewhere, so maybe the dv in your compressor causes a vibration to make noise in the part that opens or something?

basically at the end of the release there's enough pressure to barely open the gate = small area but still pressure being released so high speed to make up for the small area? probably because of the large amount of pressure the gate has to withstand while in boost, the gate is barely open when releasing a small amt of pressure

am i close dan? or just a wanna be :P

definitely not saying screw it. ive only had it for about 2 weeks. i havent even had time to say screw it haha. but really though it runs beautifully, just takes a solid 5 seconds to start up. after that its golden. i just need to figure out why my air bag and ESP lights are on. other than that its great.

im pushing more boost than i was when it dynoed at 323. curious to see what im at now.

Nice build. I was about to do an EFR setup. I had random ESP/Air Bag lights right after picking my car up from RAI. Not sure if its related to what you are experiencing, but I just lived I with it. Let us know your fix.

The airbag light for me is on b/c i switched to s4 recaros a couple days ago. not related to RAI's build.


the Traction control on my car doesn't work because my car is MAFless... and they haven't been able to figure out how to use ME7 to turn it back on. If i get desperate i'm gonna just go buy a maf and plug it in and say fuck it lol. it shouldn't affect how the car drives?

However, plug your MAF back in, grab an S3 MAP, and check out how Eric figured out you can scale Maestro to read up to 28psi instead of 22. I think running a MAF might be part of the issue you are getting (not because I know tuning well, but just from observations of who has cold start issues).

Give Rarak a PM. He is a guy here on AZ that does custom tunes, and I have seen videos of a car he tuned that is BT running RS4 injectors starting in zero degree weather like it was stock. ;). Maybe he can tune from a distance or is in the area for vacation or something. Give him a holla and see what he would charge for a fix.

01-03-2013, 10:37 AM
well uh. err. haha . i jumped it and it started.

it usually takes about 10 to 15 seconds until it turns over and starts. this morning it took about 10 and completely stopped. had a friend nearby and decided it was worth a shot trying to jump it, and it cranked for about 10 seconds and then started..ran for about 30 seconds and then died....jumped it again - cranked for about 10 seconds and then i let it run for about 20 minutes. So I guess ill pick up a new battery, but it still takes about 10-15 seconds to start when cold.

i noticed the cold start/missfire issues and you having stock coil packs, have you looked into getting okada coil packs?? they produce 4 times the spark and maybe this could help your issues? just throwing that on the table for a possibility, but im deff not an expert haha

i take my car to Mark at ASP mostly. I just went with RAI for this turbo build due to price. Ill have to see if Mark is familiar with tuning on Maestro. RAI thinks its hardware related. I picked up an optima red top, so Im going to see if that helps anything, but I am without the car for the weekend so I wont know until i drop in the battery on monday.

Efr is both coolant and oil fed. It's strange thought in every garret I've seen the turbo is clocked at a 15* offset, but the oil drain line is closest to the bottom, here the turbo isn't offset and the coolant line is at the bottom, if I remember correctly bw also clocks the turbo before shipping it out

Coolant fittings need tightened up. Those Phenix AN fittings are junk and loosen up over time

Phenix fittings? Is that what rai uses for all of their lines or are these special for the efr? For $400 I expected gold plates turbo lines

hahahahaha suck for you bro! oh wait I have the same lines, $400 dollar lines that when I asked RAI why they were so expensive they told me "because we believe lines are not something to skimp out on, because paying a higher price now means you won't have to replace them later on"

Maybe not replace but you will have to continuously tighten them. Maybe some threadlocker or teflon would help.

hahaha. well FWIW my lines haven't loosened up, the ones going into the turbo are solid at least - they leak the same amount they did when i got the car back [:p] haha RAI told me that the massive heat expansion alone would cause any fittings to loosen over heat cycles

also RAI has no b7 business anymore... lmao... they're all about B8 EFR/GTX builds, and pumping out a looot of them... someday i will have to peek into the b8 section to see if they're holding up well

good link, thanks!

By the way, none of my AN fittings leak at all after 2000 miles of hard driving and thermal cycles, so I don't know why your cars are having this level of problems. Remember to tighten AN fittings, you go finger tight then 90 degrees past. Any more can damage the landing and any less can come loose.

And how many times have you rebuilt it now? As for my 400wap my car has not been back for retuning since the build and the addition of the stgII HPFP as I'd like to put some milage on the car before finalizing it...



Really your 28 series?? If you do the math on your .64 at 23.5psi I am making more AWHP than you are! As I am positive I can make up 23AWHP to get to your 404 with 7 additional psi of overhead and STILL be at stock limiter! (equeling your 30PSI)..... So please in the future please think before you type!

yes i see said dyno, my bad for missing it... haha isn't it pathetic that you're trying to compare peak power to a 2867. with all your mods you can't even beat a turbo that's closer in size to a k04 than a gt30 Lulz. on top of that i don't have a pump conversion, direct injection w/m, ported head, i had a 2.5" exhaust with 3 mufflers back when it was dyno'd. No dowel pin / fluidamr either. yes you're right your car SHOULD push more power at much less boost. that's what HAVING A BIGGER TURBO will do... too bad you can't do it!!

no wait not compare. just kind of get close to, HOPEFULLY. SOMEDAY. MAYBE? PLEASE?


Also, only my head was rebuilt. but your motor and head was rebuilt wasn't it...


this may not have occurred to you, but just b/c you have more air doesn't mean you're gonna have more power. Like i said, how about you stop talking shit and hit me back up when you reach the 400 club? why shoot for my 404 when i've proven 415?

drumnjuny
01-15-2013, 02:26 PM
just saying, your build must REALLY blow if you can't top a 2867 that runs like ass. and haha, even in it's leaky fucked up state, it makes the same power as you if i turn up the boost slightly!! my car made >360 at 26psi. and not bullshit 360awhp that lasts for a heartbeat between 6900-7100rpms. 360awhp that's actually usable.

i'm 22, i'm allowed to act like a child infrequently. what excuse do you have?

seriously get some suspension, so your car doesn't handle like a 1950's jalopy. i guess some people love shitty handling and body roll on stock suspension??? looks like you're putting your shitty power out of a huge build to good use at VIR......... which is a track for those still giving any shred of a shit about my beef with vizi's attitude






for anyone listening to vizi, here's his message, apparently its an intelligent one!!:
Everyone, go to Absolute Automotive if you want a car that has problems while performing at an incredibly substandard level (lets be honest, 42AWHP is not had easily at this level) with more supporting mods and a bigger turbo than anyone in this section.

01-15-2013, 02:40 PM
So at 360awhp at 26psi to 7100 rpms its still much slower than mine... Did you not think that sentrence through enough???? Ah yes my suspension which is stock and im still able to give you youngins a run for your money with your BT and modded suspensions.... So your next rant is what now??? I have only helped people and steered then in the right direction. You do not need to take out your misfortune anger out on me who has done nothing but try to help you!

haha well, i never pretended to know everything. i'm just sick of jeff's know it all attitude. no one is dumb enough to waste their time challenging his impossibly low amount of humility, but today (combined with weeks of random posting about his car's awesomeness) jeff gave me the motivation, combined with my ability to be on the internet while at work, time, and dyno that shows his greatest accomplishment is a failure to a hobby of mine that i've more or less put on the side burner while i attempt to accomplish something of value.

i seriously couldn't care less if jeff or anyone has more power than me. the sad part is jeff is twice my age and couldn't care more lmao. my bad for being a dick, i'll put that on me every day. someone's gotta be a dick eventually though

like i said many times, oSHIT-cornAR can definitely put out more power than my car. i just don't wanna hear about it until i see a dyno and on top of that i'm sick of this completely bullshit "my car never has problems" shit. i even discussed a few jeff's had with his car. use VIR as an excuse idgaf, its a problem if its a problem and i've put several beatings on my car comprable to a track day as have most people on here.

get the power, get the dyno, then talk shit all you want. until then you're just speculating about what your car can do. and you're assuming a lot on the fueling end of things

03-12-2013, 02:28 PM
also; double check that any of the wires aren't backing out of the plug harness (the power one since everything is off). did you plug it into your laptop via the USB? This should start up the BMP. if it doesn't then your BMP is having some kind of failure most likely, you will need to force a firmware update but you should contact Tapp about that if and only if it isn't getting power when plugged into the laptop.

Can you describe the cold start issue? Is it just that it starts rough?

I'm 80% sure I have a fuel leak in one of my hard lines, but when I first start my car after it has been sitting overnight, I have to crank it forever! Crank it like 10 seconds then it wont go so i give the starter a break, then go again for another 10 seconds and usually by the third crank cycle it will just start, but it struggles. Is that the same issue you have, or is it mostly just that it starts harsh?

I don't think so, It requires tuning, I mean the only issue is that the injector isn't injecting fuel into the cylinder in the correct fashion for the engine to properly startup, probably just not enough fuel, we just need access to the proper maps so that the injector can be tuned to operate differently in that time frame. AFAIK we only have injector constant which can be dialed up or donw to adjust AFR as a whole, not just for startup, so you may be able to get it to work by changing the injector constant but then you would have nice startup and a poor running car. Chris tapp just put out those lpfp maps so maybe he has more fueling maps on the way.
