New toy for Wheedle...



The important part...



2000 Audi S4 6 Speed

2.7L 30valve V6, twin turbo, twin intercoolers, 6 speed, AWD

144k on the clock, with recent timing belt, water pump, tensioners, seals, valve cover gaskets, diverter valves, all control arms, brake pads, rear calipers.

I think it'll get me by until Karl can reach the passenger pegs on the Strom...

Im hoping to keep it relatively sane... maybe one of the switchable chips, some coilovers and swaybars. If something needs work or replacement, I might look into upgrading...

How's the driver's side engine mount? It's the one that wears out and the engine has to come out to change it. They're fun cars, though and pretty durable.

All the mounts were changed with the t-belt and water pump. 8500 miles in and I am really enjoying the car. I swapped in a Kenwood double-din head unit to get XM and MP3, added a cheapo boost gauge, and got an alignment done on it. Its time for new tires, think I might get a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sports put on next week. Then a fresh set of plugs, and a fuel filter at the next oil change. Afterr that I think I might order up the H&R/Bilstein Cup Kit and Hotchkiss sway bars.

I had a ride in one that was done all the way. It was mind blowingly fast. I think he said it was 4-500 hp.

There are a handfull out there that are in the 700 range, but far from stock. Some of them are just insane. Mid 400's is about right for Stage3 ( mild turbo upgrades, exhaust, intercoolers, and chipped ) I think I will stick to Stage2 ( chip, exhaust ) which is mid 300's, maybe upgraded intercoolers. The drivetrain beyond the clutch is pretty well bulletproof under 500 as long as it hasnt been abused or neglected. If I ever have problems with the turbos though, its all gotta come out, and upgrades are not much more than originals.

Yeah I think it was stage 3 if I remember it right. I believe he said it had aftermarket turbos intercoolers etc. He was way into them. My FIL has the newish V8 S4 and the older one makes it feel slow, hell it makes his 911 S feel slow.

Stock I think the 4.2 V8 was a bit faster/quicker, but they just weren't as fun to drive. Plus, they are more expensive, with 350hp within reach for the 2.7tt for about a grand...
