    Edgar's A4 B7 2.0TFSI BT Build

    No other real vices to spend money on Rob so i just throw it at this. I put a lot of money into savings and investments so i like to enjoy this car. It's only got a few more years until i throw it away and buy me a Porsche or some other expensive super-ish car to mod heavily for my mid life...

    So if you've been keeping up then you'll know the car hasn't been feeling right. I did a compression test this weekend and although she's still very lively i can tell there's something amiss. Test showed pretty consistent across except for cylinder 3, a little lower than the rest, but overall...

    Thanks Rob. It is a shame but I'd like to tuck and hide the wires and hoses better if i was going to show it off more. The can works well. It fills up almost every week since the weather has been cold and damp but it does it's job. Sent from my KB2005 using Tapatalk

    The blanket shouldn't cause anything to cook in the turbo. If you're driving the car hard then you definitely give it a minute or two to cool down but modern day turbos are well built for this. I don't know that I've noticed any increase spool time but the engine bay is noticeably cooler. I...

    Got my new TurboSmart Comp Gate 40. Set it up with a 17 lb spring combo. Haven't taken it out yet but it looks pretty. Plan on getting some logs tomorrow or this weekend. Hope it fixes things or i might put in a heavier spring combo to see if that does anything. Sent from my KB2005 using...

    Changed my shocks tonight. Took out some blown Bilsteins that someone sold me not long ago. They're going in the trash. Just a quick snapshot below of the size difference between the Koni STR.T's and the Bilsteins. I'm sure they'll be noticably better than what I had in. The old ride was like a...

    I think I bricked my ecu flashing a file. Anyone know how to unbrick one? Sent from my KB2005 using Tapatalk

    The turbo is capable of 550hp. We still have some ways to go but I'd be pretty surprised if the fueling will let us get there. The engine is forged so there's no problem getting there from that standpoint. Stock ecu. Sent from my KB2005 using Tapatalk

    Did a dyno day with a group from Slush at Finishline Industries in Fort Collins. I invitrd Jordan from Motoza and he obliged and came out. Super cool guy and really knows his stuff. They let him sit in the car during the dyno since they found out he's a tuner. Unfortunately we weren't ready for...

    New 034 motor mounts going in this week or weekend. Also finished the mock up lines. Will probably put them in on Sunday. I have a dyno day lined up on Saturday in Fort Collins. Tune isn't finished yet but I'm curious how much power I'm making right now. I'm hoping to get one more revision...

    What have you done to your Audi A4 B7 today?

    Judging by those things on the ground looks like control arms. Sent from my KB2005 using Tapatalk

    Haha. Thanks Rob. It's taken a lot of time and money from my life but i don't have any other vices really. Can't say it's for everyone as there are definitely other cars that you can make big power in and not try as hard but i really enjoy this car. Hope you're able to find that passion and...

    Went for a drive with an audi group. Car performed great against and with some big power cars that were there. The new meth pump really pulled through. Noticable increase in power all the way through. Motoza also adjusted my N75 duty cycle a little which I'm sure played a part. Sent some logs...

    No. Never figured it out. I tried putting in the RS4 brake booster but you need the RS4 master cylinder as well. I might take that on later this year but i just put it to the side for now. Sent from my KB2005 using Tapatalk

    Haha! Yea, just one or two extra. Today I went and bought some more happy juice. I'm not low in my tank but eventually I'll need some and it's not gonna expire on me anyways. Also got some new (to me) black visors. My old ones didn't have the garage controls. Easy install and let me fix...

    Did a few things today, none really performance related. Bought some wheels that need some TLC. I think it'll buff out. That will be an upcoming project. Went by Adams Polish in Denver (near Denver) and bought some products. It's nice having an actual store nearby. Tried to install a...
