****** hell! well done bud,thats a great figure...and braging rights lol,i can just emagine how this thing must shift,when does the boost come in?
again well done!
edit,can see the boost coming in around 3200 and full boost around 3800/4k?
Thanks for the kind words! It was a pleasure to tune. The car is a credit to you and the quality of workmanship on this motor is second to none!
Like andy said the car drives like any other a4, then at 4k it goes mental, love the tall gearing in this car even though it rips through them ! Full boost on the road is 4k (25/26 PSI) and starts building boost from 3k, pretty impressive for such a big tubbie.
You WILL want more power ! its addictive ! Bring on the cams , probaly see around 2-300rpm earlier spool and i reckon around 20-30 bhp !
I need to get mine tuned really soon now.
we need a video or sound clip!
Fantastic outcome mate, very impressive figures, wasnt sure what to expect but thats more!
Bet you cant wipe that cheesy grin off your mug, new toy for a while eh! Ha
So, can you put up a overall spec of the engine with rough cost of the build if you dont mind??? Got me interested in looking into this for next car now!
Superb mate, keep on baiting em! Ha.
Thanks for that spec, makes for an impressive read, no disrespect mate but didnt realise it was as much detail in some areas.
Did you do pretty much all the mechanicals yourself???
Good work Pal good work! I love it when a plan comes together! Remember looking at your proposed spec last October on this thread. I was like "yeah cheers, no way this is happening!". But fair play you cracked it! Just a quick one though as I have to ask. The money you have spent from start to finish on parts plus the price you paid for the car when bought, surely it comes close to B5 RS4 territory? I know that it wouldn't be the same as it would not be as unique as your "megatron" 20v, but I'm guessing that for the money (not time) you have pumped into it, it must be in the realms of 400 bhp RS4. Top work and fair play. My bearskin comes off to you.....
What an amazing thread. The work, time and effort you put into this car is amazing. I have goosebumps just writing this!
I love your car. It must sound amazing and go like **** of a proverbial shovel.
What I would like to know, is how do you know all this? How to build an entire engine from neigh on scratch? Are you a mechanic?!
I take my hat of to you sir, some feat of art you have there!
Thanks for sharing this with us. Enjoy the ride and i love the fact you showed the VXR the time of day!
Whats your next step?
There certainly is, and i would suggest when you are almost finished (You will never finish, there will always be something you want to do) is get the Project report tidy it make sure you have the best photos etc and get it printed in a book form. I think if you have put in all that hard work you may aswell show off all your hard work where ever you go...
Was going to do this on my R5 build.
I hate xmas for that, i love christmas just not the silly spending. Cars need chrissy presents to!!!!
Any updates and or vids of this cracking motor car yet fella?
****** to that. If I spent that much time and money on a car I would be eating fried testicles the same night (yes my balls).....Must be nice doing what you want and spending it on what you like (£ too!). AHHHHH sigh, miss the single life sometimes.
We're here for a good time not a long time........
Anyway must dash need to hoover and wash up.
Looking good buddy - Is it stopping alright?
Paint i hear, hmmm, there was inspiration after all then??? Ha
Sounds good mate, what did you go for, colour change? Any different bits? Look forward to seeing the outcome!
