I've wanted an s4 for a couple years now. Always tossed the idea around. Time came and picked this one up last week.
As of right now, bone stock. Still an amazing car to drive
Needs an exaust right away. planning on a borla muffler then custom piping as i have a pipe bender at work, then will go from there

Made a custom Cai and box. Sad part is the vibrant coupler cost the same as the plastic and airfilter together.. But all in all happy with the outcome and was dam cheap.

Thanks! Its plastic from industrial paints and plastic's. Took a fair bit of heat to bend so should be good, but keeping an eye on it

Im sure itll be fine. The turbos are jammed into the fire wall area so that's where most of the major heat is anyway

Motor mounts are in! Highly recommend the blue-point mini air rachet. Saved so much time with it.
Gives a good idea of size

On the hunt for this clunk on lift off now.
Apikol diff carrier

instead of just buying the billet crossmember. decided to use some casting rubber and fill the mount to see if there is a difference

And gave it a quick shot of paint

Update: filling the diff crossmember made no noticeable difference. So down to driveshaft carrier, tranny mounts, or snub.

Finally installed the turbo 3 days from start to finish. Turbo swap, heat wrapped downpipes, JHM shifter stabilizer bushing, new oil feed lines with heat sleeves on them. Before i did the swap i had to install v-band exhaust clamps as it used to be all one piece also removed the cats and installed some resonators from a new Hemi ram.

So now to the sad part, installed the turbo's on dec 27-29. And on the 30th i got t-boned, it's most likely a write off. Still waiting to here from icbc to figure out what i'm doing.
