    if you can afford it, (it might even come with the package, i dont know) but get the RS4 heads too and the AWE ceramic coated tubular manifolds.

    Got all my stuff sitting at AmD, just need to get it all fitted !

    You will notice a big difference in power delivery with the hybrids, it wont be as torquey but bloody hell when it comes on boost it will pull to the redline !

    I'm doing mine whenever AmD are a little lesss busy. Still waiting on the milltek exhaust for the RS4 as these have been out of stock everywhere, along with the 100 cell cats.

    whisky rs4 exh mani's are the same as 1999< s4 mani's you wont see any difference you need tubulars if you want to remove the restriction for top end.

    inlet mani, i haven't got one myself yet, i've got to complete my engine rebuild then run it in and start looking in 3 months or so, if i come across one inbetween i'll let you know cos i can't afford it until i've done the engine rebuild it just got direct wallet injection!
