thanks!

i dont have a build tread on the Audi, its just a car i had some fun With :P

milled Down the pistons for a 9:1 comp and used 2 garreth Tb0363 turbos from volvo and a Nira I3 ecu! thats about it.. lay down 386 hp and 640 Nm at 0,5 bar boost :P
broke the Auto tranny in less then 2 months :P i then bought a 6 speed A6 2,5 tdi manuel Box and a 950nm clutch! so when the volvo is finished ill bring the Audi to my garage and ripp the engine back out.. i think some H rods New turbos and 1,5 + bar should make it interesting? that is, as long as it dosent put out more then 950-1000nm (clutch you know)



it makes a Nice sound to :P

There are a couple nice old V8 Quattros around here, always like seeing them. One is driven by an old guy who bought it new and still pays a ton to get it serviced at the Audi dealer!

That's a rather rude question to ask and I wouldn't expect the OP to tell you that.

Nothing wrong with asking how much an engine build costs imo... whatever though.

Once you've actually spent some money building something, you'll realize otherwise. I prefer not to think about, let alone share the amount of money I have spent on my cars.
