Absolutely, it's not done yet. Still have a decent amount of shaving to do, including the top.

I can take some pictures and post them in a few days. Hardness is being ran down the fender with a disconnect by where the fan controller would be, then up behind timing covers so it's hidden. Everything will be tucked under the manifold from there.

Sir, what are you talking about pertaining ro turbo's and hoods?...... Also , the fire wall is sealed with rubber for a reason. If you remove the fire-wall, the fumes from a built cars engine bay will be sucked into the inside of your car, by way of your cabin filter and other openings that aren't sealed.

Once the manifold is done being shaved, im going to drill and tap a nice piece of Al. weld it to the bottom and use "push to connect" fittings for the vacuum lines.

Cutting the thin sheet metal secondary firewall won't increase any odors produced by your motor. It does absolutely nothing and is there to separate the battery and other BS from the engine compartment.

Removing the secondary firewall will not cause any odors in the cabin. The increase plenum volume helps at the higher RPM.

I don't plan on having to test/inspect/replace them and I also don't want to see them. I can have the intake manifold off the engine in 5 min if neccisary but i don't see them being a common point of failure. There will only be two fittings under the manifold, reference for the WG and BOV. The others will be behind the secondary firewall.

I edited that portion out of my original comment. The runners have been heavily ported. Ideal plenum volume should equal runner volume. I'm sure my plenum exceeds it by a fair margin but I'm not at all concerned.

I also have mildly ported 2.8L heads. It's my money, I'm not concerned about "waste" on the plenum extension, especially concerding what I "payed" for it.

Whenever you want to put your s4 up against mine, lmk. I should be on a mild tune in the next few weeks.

WESLIFE
07-01-2017, 03:06 AM
I wasn't trying to disrespect your build when i was talking about thee plenum size. I just don't think that big plenum manifolds improve anything unless other things are done as well. I actually like your build. I don't own an s4, i have 2 b7 a4's. I've built a handful of 2.7 single turbo's though. Im just starting on another. It should be done and fully tunned withen a month..also, everyone always say" my car has a mild tune". Get it fully tunned and call it a day. No need to race a person and when you lose say"i was only on a mild tune 15 psi. Do it right. Don't leave any room for excuses.

Please tell us more about your harness, I really like how you are routing it through the front of the engine instead of the OEM setup. are you going all through the DS fender into the cabin and back to the ECM box? ideally i would like to know more about the conector at the end. I've been thinking of doing something just like that on my 2.7t B6.

All good things. This thread delivers. That blue on your valve covers is just the right amount of "pop" under the hood without being too over-the-top, and good choice on the brake caliper PC too. I have the cliche red 18z's on now... really bugging me lately. You can get red calipers on some OEM stinkers these days. It's officially uncool lol.

I'm digging the Nova too. Nostalgia aside, there are really only a handful of muscle cars that can pull off the "serious" look with little/no appearance mods, and the Nova is one of them. No flash, no garish trim, no spoiler packages. Oddly enough, what works on those cars is what works on the B5 and some others from the late 90's designs: clean, simple lines.

JMTx86
09-15-2017, 06:19 AM
Thanks Blueprint! Yes the goal with the calipers was to not take away from the clean appearance. I like the red calipers, but I think in this case the silver was a good choice. The nova is a really fun car, the body lines are also 99.9% on point which took hundreds of hours to accomplish..... I'm also proud to say its 90% nos parts and the other 10% are american made!

As long as the fresh air intake is between the 2 firewalls, (scuttle chamber) that is where your HVAC will draw air from. The secondary firewall has a seal to seal the engine bay from the fresh air intake.

Breach this seal, or cut a chunk out of the secondary firewall, then your HVAC is no longer drawing in fresh air. It will also draw in air from the engine bay. So any light oil mist will be drawn into the passenger compartment. Even a clean, dry engine will have odours when itís hot.

Unless this is a balls-out race car, I wouldnít consider breaching the secondary firewall.

Is that going to be a supplemental battery, or your only one? I would assume you've got experience with that brand enough to fab a tray for that specific size. I've been tempted to move to something smaller, but I don't know well they handle day-to-day usage requirements. Seems like all the ones I find are either prohibitively expensive, or a little shaky on the specs. I don't want to "save money" just to end up having to buy another one 6 months later.

Rear brakes are done, now the wheel fitting begins.... thats going to be a long road. Need to raise the front about 1", drop the rear a 1/2 and start the rolling and pulling!

Yes, front and rear some rolling/pulling. Not at that stage yet.


managed to get the flu, still pretty sick but the wife went out so I snuck into the garage today and started on the rear doors.

Autopower cage? How is the fitment can you still bolt up rear seats ?

Yup, the fitment is ok and yes you can still bolt up rear seats. Im adding B pillar braces and planning on tying the cage into the rear to provide support for the coil mounts.

I do build harnesses but the wait time is approaching 2 months. Thanks for the kind words!

Sway bar is in, had to drop the rear sub frame a little but wasnt too bad of an install. Dont mind the rust and worn bushings. I have another rear sub frame that is sitting at the shop waiting for powder coating. All seems have been welded and I have all new polly/solid bushings. The back of the car will all be new and better than OEM like the front currently is. Planning on running a nissan rear dif in the very near future, just have other things to prioritize right now, figure fall of 2018 ill have all that squared away.

In other news, the camaro is running and is an absolute animal, will post vids/pics soon.

Those swaybar bracket bolts next to the gas tank are a pain in the ass on a normal S4, but it looks like with your custom tank you have plenty of room

Tell me about it!
I ended up slotting the upper bolt hole on the new bracket, starting the threads on the bolt, then simply sliding the bracket into place before torqueing it down.
There didn't seem to be any other way.

I do build harnesses [...]


Sorry for putting it here, but I am sure you have your pm clogged and info im asking is probably useful to others.

Do you know what are the differences between 2.7 harnesses? I have a AZA one and a 99Y (facelift) s4 harness and Im wondering if the AZA engine will match the s4 harness (sadly, the engine code is a mystery, yet it might be AGB). I have to swap the harnesses due to AZA being from a UK car, while the car is euro.

I completely forgot to update this. Car is running, working out a few things with the tune and re-doing the surge tank for some more trunk bling. I've been dedicating most of my time to the camaro as its pretty straight forward go fast in the 1320 type of car where as the audi requires fineness and well...... a lot more time... IE i twisted the driveshaft in the camaro and swapped it out in 5 mins.... literally 5 minutes lol

Beautiful car. Matter of fact, kudos on your whole stable! [:d]

I really like what you've done with the S4. I like your vision and you've got some mean skills - everything I like in a build thread.

Thanks for all the kind words, still working on the tune, slowly.... been working a lot lately but making progress! Should be painting the new cf hood, fenders and current bumper (shaving washer caps) in the near future. Also thinking about making a CF sunroof delete or possibly just shaving it for an OEM look. Radio has been removed and im making a panel to hold the fuel pressure and boost gauges (aem) along with a few aux switches. That will be temp, long term goal is to remove the dash this winter, lighten it up and replace the center water fall/ shift section with cf.

I see that in the previous posts the wiring harness looked like it came out of the drivers side fender area up into the drivers side timing cover.. If you donít mind me asking, where the hell is that thing fed from now? Unless my eyes are deciving me.

Its ran down (behind) the drivers side fender down to the frame rail and then up through the timing cover. Its hidden pretty well.

Love those hood vents, do you have a picture of the underside of the hood by chance? I have a set of those vents ready for install but and trying to decide on placement to keep as much of the hood's structure intact.

Car is running and making power, been driving it here and there. Next up is fire suppression, vertical flow intercooler and a panel for the rear seat delete.
Ive also been extremely busy, I have single turbo kits for the 2.7 in productions along with intercooler kits.

I got the same hood vents several months ago and gave up on install due to lack of room, Interestingly I found your thread (really nice project btw) and that got me to re-think although I'm tempted to go with Ford RS vents as they are somewhat more compact in size than mine/yours. Did you noticed increased flexing of the hood due to inner support cut outs, just wondering about general hood integrity

JMTx86
04-20-2019, 05:37 AM
not that ive noticed, im also using hood latches so there is additional rigidity added in the front.
