    They are Eibach springs. Feels completely standard but would say it corners slightly better

    There 1 torx screw inside sunglasses holder take that out and the hole unit comes down with a little pull just pushed it out from inside.
    Just clips back In . :friends:

    It would pop out with screw driver but I did not want to break it and plastic removal tool was not much use.

    It's a local garage we use at work. Should probably say that the spark plugs were changed last year so are not in this service.

    That is good,no suspension arm bushes being commented on, or has that car had some of its suspension arms replaced already?

    I'm not aware of any suspension works, only comments were a small chip in the windscreen, slight blow / rattle on centre silencer.

    Car only has 53k miles on. When does suspension need replacing?

    That's seems pretty good. Im changing a couple of pulleys and coolant aswell. Sometimes I wonder if it's worth the hassle.

    Installed this differential mount kit yesterday and I highly recommend this mod!! My transmission would feel delayed and lumpy at low rpm and now this kit has eliminated this. Gear changes are so smooth and quick now.

    I’ve just fitted some test pipes with a stock system to my MRC stage 2 dual pulley set up and now have a horrid rasp that I’m not keen on is there anything I can do?
    I’ve also lost power/torque which was to be expected so the car is booked back in with MRC for a map tweak to hopefully address this.

    Sorry for delay in replying to your prompt posting, my S4 is a February 2011 car with only 24500 miles and it has been given an advisory for lower arms bushes separating/splitting very slightly.

    Did you speak to MRC, what do you think can be the reason for this , i.e. loss in power. It shouldn't...

    I was aware that when initially fitting decat testpipes the car would lose power until the map is tweaked. I'm not sure that on this platform we gain much from decats other than helping to reduce under bonnet temps and reliability that there's then no cats to fail.
    The car is in for its map tweak on 22nd so I would like to see if I can make the S4 rolling road day at Unicorn on the 23rd as it would be a good comparison between the two dynos.

    So, you just wanted to decat to be on the safe side...? But surely the Merc Heat Exchanger alone would also allow you to do that, wouldn't it. I mean a lot of US folks who have reported cat failure on this platform well, they are the ones who love their 1/4 miles.

    Oh, if you can make it to Unicorn on 23rd that will be awesome mate as it would be a perfect comparison...!

    Not sure on this platform but I know a few (supercharged) Mini tuning places suggest keeping the cats as they supposedly perform better with them.

    Personally like the straight pipe life :rockwoot: (haven't currently got an S4 though but maybe one day)

    Yes. Once tuned and running more boost these engines run even hotter meaning very high exhaust gas temps and it is this that kills the cats. The Merc HX only helps address the IAT’s and does nothing to help the EGT’s.

    I usually see between 19-21psi of boost with the dual pulley set up and Meth so was a little worried how long the cats would last at that level.
    What sort of boost figures do other people see?

    My latest little project...
    Could have been a bit cleaner but didn't have any resin or gelcoat and ended up filing the gaps with the shell and playing (a lot) with the glue gun...

    Anyway, it works perfectly, phone charges regardless of the direction it's facing (as in fwd or bwd, obviously not upside down) and fast charging is on since it's plugged into a QC3.0 plug...

    Installed this 034 street density transmission mount today. There was so much wiggle from the old mount, now it's much stiffer. My transmission finally feels amazing, no issues and sharp response.
