    New Merc Racing Heat exchanger, other options?

    Agree with you, I actually thought the exact same thing. I wanted to change tuner to IE with the map update box but already sunk too much in to justify change and tbh IE came too late in the platform for me. If you look at the quickest tuned cars on this platform it's a even mix of cat and...

    New Merc Racing Heat exchanger, other options?

    During a map tweak they told me face to face a forced induction car would make less power if you removed the back pressure. Specifically my car. Never went back. Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk

    New Merc Racing Heat exchanger, other options?

    Previously I read quite a few discussions on US forum particularly on the logging Vs stock setup. Some of the cars were B8.5. Someone also posted wiring diagram which was similar between a 09 and 14 S4. When I did mine I did notice I could hear the pump more soon as ignition is on. I put some...

    MRC are comparing it to the AMS one which has a upgraded pump. It's not apple for apples. If you have money then go for belt and braces one with a uprated pump if you want something in-between go for the Merc one with stock 100% pump duty mod. Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk

    B8.5 Anti roll Bar with sports diff

    The part number I listed above is 22.5mm they probably just assumed it would be sufficient since the sports diff is doing a lot of the work at the back. Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk

    B8.5 Anti roll Bar with sports diff

    I have a S4 Avant, tbh i couldn't say. I went from stock to uprated springs, end links, drop links and front/back arbs in one go. Car vibrations are more enhanced as it's now more stiffer but for me my family only go in it once in a while so the handling/planted upgrade was worth trade off...

    S4 Avant handling

    To reduce roll you need to stiffen the chassis. Some ideas - strut brace, uprated front, rear roll bars. Upgrade the drop links from plastic to metal. Just be mindful that the suspension will take a hit and be less comfortable but coming from a GTR it's a moot point. Sent from my LYA-L09 using...

    The latest view on S4 Brake upgrades?

    It's really hard to advise what would be the best option for a specific driver until they qualify what their budget is and how they drive. Someone might have an issue with same setup that's been flawless for another driver. Everyone will tell you get this or that including myself but you...

    Do I? Don't I?

    The drain plug for the supercharger oil is under the charger so my thinking was if it's off then to do everything else as it's the most labor intensive item I've got zero issues but how annoying would it be that something as you said developes after just changing the oil. I'm just going to do...

    Do I? Don't I?

    Definitely try before you buy only thing which will be tricky is the longer journey comfort as you might not be able to test this unless it's a mates car. I might just stick in a camping chair instead lol then you can have them Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk

    Do I? Don't I?

    Haha have you sat in them? I don't really find them comfortable there's no width adjustment like you get in the other German cars. So they are wide and when driving fast it's hard to stay center when cornering. I've tried adjusting many times and can never get pain free long journey. Sent from...

    Do I? Don't I?

    Thanks it's a S4. Perhaps if I look at it if I don't do it now I will need to do it later so why run the increased risk or something happening and then looking back that I should of just done it. Piece of mind really I guess. Sent from my LYA-L09 using Tapatalk
