    idk with what I've done with the exhaust and the head Im sure it'll spool pretty quickly but we'll see when its running.

    But update: New timing belt cause what the hell Im in there and just little stuff to do.

    Hmm didn't know audi used external wastegates as OE thats really cool and as far as what the size is just pull it and measure the manifold side opening that's how there rated for size IE 44mm wastegate has a 44mm opening.
    Also you might want to look at routing it to external dump if its not already. They did a comparison on SRTforums with a dyno with an external then routed the wastegate back in to the exhaust and there was a 20+ hp drop from the turbulence created from the wastegate being routed in to the exhaust they even redynoed it after making it an external dump and the power came back.
    plus the sound of raw non muffled exhaust is sex when its that close to the engine.

    It's nice until you feel like an asshole every time you pass a car, knowing you're blowing out their ear drums.

    It's going to take $200 to re-route my dump tube back into my downpipe and I'm going to do it. The sound of a turbo whistle sounds much better than screaming exhaust. BUT it is fun to hear that scream when the boost kicks in.



    I love the paint job, that engine bay looks great.

    i had a 10psi spring in the srt so i didnt hear it much with the 50trim but at 5psi it made more power than most cars so i never needed much for DD and when i was giving it shit i had the cutout open so the dump was overshadowed by the cutout

    That's only if you're shooting by someone at full boost and in that scenario IDK about anyone else but what's on my mind at full boost is "YOLO!!!!".

    well the s4 is down and its getting ome stuff done to it that I've wanted to get done for a long time.
    Ok so heres the story to what happened. I was driving home from black jack training school in cherokee around 2am and the clutch went out. I went to shift and the pedal went straight to the floor.......so I drove it home that way, rev matching every gear on my way home. So I got gas at the only open gas station in sylva cause I knew that geting it in the morning was going to be way to hard. So in the morning I set off to black mountain to my fathers shop. Everytime I got on the gas alittle to much and the boost started to come up the clutch would slip like a mutha fukah.




    lol the clutch is so toast.....



    Aswell as the pressure plate





    Don't forget the flywheel lol.......

    Cars down for a long period if time and taking the carpet out to change it to a black one. No more stains. Kevin you should know how much of a pain the c4 carpets are to get out of the car. Also Im taking out the sound deading out of thr floor boards.

    leave the tar around the trans tunnel if you plan on keeping it on the road. You don't want the gear / exhaust drone at 3k rpm.
