    Talking CROSS FINGERS - I get my car back with interest this w/e!!! 500HP :o

    Hey guys,

    What I am having done is very similar to this:

    http://www.mrctuning.com/mrc530.php

    Estimated between 470 & 520 depending on how well my exhast flows... this is the ONLY limiter left in the system.

    CROSS FINGERS & pray for me. This weekend could be out of this world!

    Well the great guys at MRC are working late tonight - just got this pic sent over:



    This shows the FMIC lovely! They hope to have it running tonight and mapped tomorrow. I can then pick it up around mid-week!

    Good question - one I cant answer. I would have thought larger = more space to compress before turbos start offering boost. But I think these pipes are good to flow 700BHP so if they were smaller they may well be a limiter.

    Well I should be driving her right now... but MRC went to fit the brakes yesterday night and found that the RS4 disks & RS6 callipers do not fit under my wheels. Now they are trying t source some RS6+ disks which have a more recessed offset. What a nightmare, I wish this had been done while they were waiting on parts for the first 2-3 weeks! GRRR, anyway, ce la vie... cross fingers I have some possitive news tomorrow.

    If they are using RS6 disk they will need adapters for the calipers as they will not fit other wise.

    Crank indeed... their own car does 511 on a dyno (390-399) at the wheels.

    Car has been collected by my brother, but he is taking it easy and bringing it down to me tomorrow. FATS time is 3.6s with my large audio install and 19" wheels which I think is pretty damn respectable... but we shall see.

    More news in the next couple days...

    well with a fats time of 3.6 that means i am over 450HP... which is great - now all I need are the downpipes & race cats... quick remap and I should get pretty close to the 500!! The car is as driveable off boost as before... and it spools really quick. There are teething issues, which I should get sorted pretty soon. Gave the car some whelly tonight for the first time by myself and WHOSHHH... its got the whallop of a turbo car along with the constant redline pull of an NA car... just what I always wanted. So far I am happy... watch this space.

    PM me re: meeting up...

    From the audiworld site; 'FATS means For Advancement of The S, and a FATS time is a 3rd gear pull from ~4200 to ~6500rpm (60-90)'.

    Unfortunately current FATS results have not been great (4.1s) and indicate only around 400HP... but it is early days yet, so watch this space. Jan/Feb I will sort out the exhaust and have it mapped again - this should release the final numbers and I hope to drop a second off my FATS time and get closer to the 500HP

    After a dissapointing result when I first got the car back due to the restrictive downpipes, I have finally had a fully custom exhaust system made up by RS Fabrications near MRC in Banbury. These guys are absolute gods and make top top notch plumbing.

    They put together a custom made 3" downpipe leading into a 2.75" catback system with a single box. Noise at WOT is 103dB - and it has been described as an old racing jag that revs really really high, and my oh my it does! Sounds absolutely gorgeous.

    Pics of exhaust:







    MRC were so impressed with the work by RS Fabrications they had a replica of the system on one of their own cars and are having a custom system fitted to their 600+HP S2.

    I had the car on a dyno before and after the exhaust & remap was done - results here:



    502HP - MRC did it, great work. There are a few dips in the power curve that I hope to have ironed out. The dip in power over 6k seems to be due to heat soak... it seems to pickup at 6k on the road, so I hope there are a few more ponies in real life.

    Here is an incar clip taken in one of MRC's own cars with the same exhaust fitted, this is only a 400BHP S4... mine of course sounds better :P

    After a few attempts I managed a 12.57 1/4 @ 119MPH and 0-60 in 4.44. I think I can knock about .5 of a sec off that time with some practice, not bad as I was aiming for a 11-12 sec car :D
