    There's some info here 12v Pages - The Engine - Features
    Google will help you find anything you want to know specifically if you get stuck. Your engine code is ABC. The link is a yank site and I don't think they ever had the ABC 2.6 engine but most stuff is the same with the 12v's
    Hope this helps

    If you are tracking it you will need to bin the suspension and the brakes. I run AP coilovers on my A4 and they seem to work pretty well on track considering their low cost (sub £500). Brakes wise I would go for the 312mm conversion which is a simple carrier swap and some 312mm discs off a B6 mated to some good quality pads Ferrodo DS2500 or Mintex 1155 with fresh quality brake fluid. Also worth uprating the rear anti roll bar. If it hasn't been done replace all the front suspension arms with fresh O/E items as these can cause a multitude of issues.

    All imho of course, but hope it helps

    My A4 is my daily so gets used for my commute and work mileage so all creature comforts are present. My Escort is my proper track toy and doesn't even have a carpet lol.

    I usually do mine at Bedford Autodrome as there is loads of run off for that moment you run out of talent. Have done some sessions at Silverstone over the years and am planning a trip to Snetterton and Brands Hatch, also looking at doing the Nurburgring with the missus in the new year.

    It's really addictive

    There isnt a lot for the V6 as others have said, only decent power upgrades will be PES supercharger but theyre rare to find, and it will cost a bit when all added up with map etc.

    I would concentrate on improving and sorting out any handling issues, a well set up car can out run more powerful cars if done right, so roll bar/s, decent suspension and look at worn components to be replaced.

    Thanks foxmeister think your spot on there with that . As there seems to be good parts around to get the handling right. Nice the car sounds very quick . 110 in 3 very nice can only dream of that at the min. Have started stripping unneeded things out stated from the back and working forward .
