    looks like over engineered show material. impressive nevertheless
    single turbo v engine layouts suffer from massive lag and huge power spikes when the inevitably large single turbo spools up.
    that has to be a GT40 or similar. puts out 7-800+ on some applications

    would prefer a twin gt28x S4/RS4........

    That's the only thing with a big single turbo set up, all the boost in one big wack fairly late on, will be quite laggy, but when it hits, my lord you betta hold on!

    Can't believe they've done all that work to only get 540bhp. Doug from MRC is running about that on his and AFAIK it's still got stock internals. His is still twin turbo as well, so lag won't be an issue either.

    He also ruled at Vmax recently getting 198mph!!! Who said the B5 is getting old?

    i just made a nasty mess in my under garments after watching that vid. sounds very nice.

    But....

    as said, all that work for 500 odd bhp. impressive but it looks like it should be nearer 800+.

    looks like lots of show without that much usability :D

    though im sure u could wind the boost up on that and get 7-800+, that 630bhp car would be faster around a track.

    the 518bhp car would be faster round the track! while he is changing gear to get into the 100rpm power range the other car has minced him on the corner, the following straight and the next corner!
    max power figures are for bar stools
    big wide torque curves win races

    Just my opinion doesnt suit a audi really. audis are more stylish and go like **** but dont have to look like a supercar. if you get what i mean. that what i like about mine shifts big style(i know you guys have faster ones) but to look at it looks like a slightly modified a4 untill it shoots off and eats the saxo vtr for breakfast

    there was a horrible twin turbo A4 knocking around taht had the turbos mounted above the manifolds and the bonnet had been modded so you could see the compressor housing sticking out liek two frogs eyes.

    Worth noting the 630bhp is at the crank and the other two cars are quoting wheel horse power.
