    Talking Mechanics special - B5 S4 with NEW Tial 605.2 Turbos, has few issues, GREAT DEAL

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I'm thinking about selling my S4 instead of fixing it's problems. It's got brand new Tial 605.2 turbos with all supporting mods. It's a great car, feels tight when driving and is a solid car to fix and have a fast 600hp B5 S4.

    The car also has a brand new tune from Blake at ETspec, however we only have the base file loaded due to the issues. The buyer will be able to have the full tune loaded once the issues are taken care of. The only other thing needed for the full tune to be loaded is the 3bar MAP sensor from the etspec website. Tuning cable included.

    I always tried to care for the car, religiously following standard turbo driving etiquette, always letting oil warm before boost, and always leave it running for 2 mins before shutting off. Unfortunately my license got suspended 2.5 years ago and the car sat for 2 years. I did start the car and drive it around the block at least 3 times per month during my license's suspension, spent too much on the new turbos to let em fail prematurely due to sitting. Unfortunately the 2 years of being mostly still have taken a toll on the rest of the car as you can see below. I've tried to provide full disclosure of all issues so you know what you're buying before buying it.

    I can also provide a copy of the for sale ad when I purchased the car about 3 years ago.

    General info:
    2001.5
    Sedan
    Black on black, exterior: 7.5/10 interior: 8/10
    165k miles
    Asking $5000, will accept reasonable offers

    Major mods:
    Tial 605.2 with less than 3k miles since install
    Bosh EV-14 72lb injectors
    ER intercoolers
    AWE Twin 2 exhaust
    APR 2.5" Downpipes
    APR Bi-Pipes
    Clutchmasters FX400
    Bilstein shocks with H&R Springs with ECS coil conversion on the front so its height adjustable
    EPL Fueling Kit
    EPL 85mm MAF
    RS4 Accordion Hose
    034 Street Density Motor Mounts
    034 Billet Check Valve
    Apikol Snub Mount
    Apikol Rear Differential Mount
    AWE Drivetrain Stabilizer (DTS Bar)
    JHM Trio Shift Linkage and Bushing (only the linkage, not the actual short shifter)
    Glowshift digital Wideband gauge and sensor

    Full Disclosure

    Possible major problems:
    Boost leak, overboosting to 20psi when it should be on wastegate setting (N75 replaced)
    Misfires at idle, but boosts fine and doesn't affect drivability (2 coils new, rest are old, maybe that's the cause)
    Oil smell after boosting, burning oil on boost but not a major amount, totals to less then half a liter over 2k miles
    Transmission grinds if gear is shifted to reverse too quickly

    Minor problems:
    Roof paint is faded
    Hood paint is a slightly different shade of black, more metallic. (Hard to notice if at all)
    Small dings and scratches on trunk and scratches rear bumper
    Driver visor mirror lamp not working
    One license plate lamp not working
    Center ashtray won't open automatically, mechanism is probably bad
    Boost gauge is off sometimes because it miscalibrates when the car is started (not always, 50% of the time)
    Armrest stuck in up position
    Passenger seat adj. button fell off
    Driver side heated seat takes 15 mins to warm (works great once warm)

    Extras:
    New set of OEM F+R rotors and pads, fresh from ECS Tuning
    New Tires, Continental DW
    Tuning cables (not vag)
    Full - paid for - tune by ETspec

    Included with sale are receipts of all work performed under my ownership, including the labor and parts for the turbo rebuild and install (cost more then the price I'm asking)

    The car otherwise runs pretty good, it's shouldn't be huge project to fix up, I just don't have the time or will to spend to fix it and I need less of a project car. The parts installed alone are worth more than my asking price, changing the turbos alone cost over $6000 total. This is a steal if you want a fast Audi and don't mind getting your hands dirty.
