    Special features of the current Audi vee engine family are the 90-degree included angle between the
    cylinder banks and the spacing of 90 mm between the cylinders.
    The first member of the family was the 3.2-litre V6 FSI engine. The 4.2-litre V8 FSI engine is also a member
    of this family.
    It is available in two versions - a comfort-oriented basic version (used for the first time in the Audi Q7) and
    a sporty high-revving version for the new RS4. A V10 engine with 5.2 litres of displacement will also be
    available

    Speaking with a friend of mine down the pub last night who works for Mclaren F1, i mentioned the idea of using the TTRS engine next season as you can tune it with no loss of engine life. He is very enthusiastic and thinks 700bhp should do it. Ron Dennis likes the idea of free roadside assistance at the track and the 3 year warranty. Currently they get about 300 miles from an engine so 200,000 could be quite a cost saving. Jensen likes the idea of Alu roof rails but Lewis thinks Boxter brakes might be needed to slow the beast down.. All we have to do now is keep a lid on this or Ferrari will be stealing the plans and scrapping there multi million £ investment in the new V12 and simply remapping the Fiat 500........mums the word guys..:salute:

    Laugh?.....I nearly died!

    Anyway...Ron could easily get a couple of TTRS engines welded together to make a V10,then cut a couple of cylinders off to get a V8 etc etc

    Remapping the Fiat 500 would save a few bucks for Ferrari though,and might help Alonso get past the safety car...

    Well I've ignored Paddy's concerns on tuning and had Revo Stage 1 stuck on my car, and bl00dy hell has it brought it to life. It was no slouch in stock, but it is keener in all gears, hell even starting from 45mph in 6th has a real shove in the back!
    3rd gear is mighty now, you can be out and passed someone doing 50mph on a b-road in no time, making it pretty safe (reduced time exposed to danger). It's a right weapon. I was filling up with fuel last night and an R8 (v8) was already there filling up.... it got me thinking....
    TT-RS : 413bhp : 403lb/ft : 1450kg : 285bhp/tonne : 277lbft/tonne
    R8 v8 : 414bhp : 317 lb/ft : 1558kg : 265bhp/tonne : 203lbft/tonne

    Yeah, I could have him ;)

    Anyway, my point here is, IF the RS3 does come out and this engine is in a hot hatch.... nothing will touch it after a few choice mod's :D

    Apparently Muneeb has seen off an R8 with his Revo stage 2+ S3, so yours should have no problem. I want one now! Does anyone do an intake and downpipe uprade for it yet?

    i went to goodwood festival of speed over weekend... i was at audi talking to the guy about the rs5 (very nice car i must say) especially with the chunky carbon ceramics :wub:

    anyway afeter around 15 mins of chatting and a bit of rappore building i dropped the question.... and the news is its coming 100000% he couldnt contain his smile... we then went on to have a fairly detailed convo why it would be happening and so forth....

    for those of you that said these things you are right....

    1. a38p platform is coming to an end and they always bring rs models out end of line..
    2. a3 uses something the same as the golf mk5 and in america they use the ttrs lump in golfs, bar the turbo... so they know it will fit...
    3. there will be a 3 door (sportback only used for muleing (apparently cause its more disguised??) even though i said it was a bit obvious having a mule at nordschiffe with ans rs3 badge!! and a new obvious bumper,19 wheels and BBK!!!
    4. its easy money for audi... platform there engine there brakes there.... apparently the reason they are doing it to is because they felt they f***ked up a bit with the s3.. in terms of it being too much like an a3.. which i couldnt agree with more.. (my gf cant really tell the diff between BE/S3...)
    5. the RS5 has just gone into full production.. he said it will be in production for a maximum of a year then they will release the RS3..

    i cant believe this guy would say all this if it werent true...:unsure:

    saving starts... two years time 2nd hand RS3 for me pleaseeee!!!

    ditto.... makes you wonder whether its worth taking your car any further or just sav from now.... :think:

    especially when next up for me is stage 2 and seeing muneeb loose his clutch already it becomes costly... extra 1k for clutch + stage 2+ = circa £3000

    Mine's slipping too since GIAC, and as its only a 2.0T sportback worth a lot less obv...thats why im not gonna shell out for a Sachs , going for one from CG motorsports in Leeds- an custom performance organic one for under £300 , they do a paddle as well but dont fancy an on/off switch for the clutch.

    Muneeb be gentle on her till our trip up North! Im jus driving in stock mode till then.

    THIS :) means I am now 100% convinced there will be an RS3, no official release date but will be in 2011.

    Ive been lucky recently, ive driven an R8 which was awesome, ive had a TTS which was good but not as good as the TTRS i got as the courtesy car, it very nearly made me buy one but i would want the sport button depressed all the time and recently when i picked up my S3 the garage gave me the keys to test a new RS5 which was awesome but im not keen on autos. I have been asking my garage about a RS3 for the past 4 months and finally ive been told its out in about 11 months now, so i better get saving as ive told my dealer i want one as long as its a 3 door with a manual gearbox as per TTRS. Ive mentioned this on other posts before and fingers crossed i might get one as they are only making 2900 according to rumours.

    I do not think they will only make so many, bit like the BMW M1 limited that was quashed recently.

    I think it will be launched around march, but not be available to pick up till late 2011, though that is not confirmed.

    Haz1, i go to Lakeland audi in cumbria, the "worst car" they gave me was a 2.0TDI A4 estate with all the toys. But considering the amount of money ive put they way in the past years i should hope the look after me unless i might go else where or another brand and as they already know i want a RS3 they are maybe trying to keep me sweet lol
