I’m gathering parts since a while for this build and my appointment at Rombotis tuning is in less than 10 days so I’ll start the thread

History and spec of the actual car.

I bought it in 2005 as a 2001.5 S4 with 36 000km 6 speeds, sport package and xenon, but it was a 2000 A4 swaped :S the car only had a chip and Koni coil over back then.

Parts bought after the beginning of the build:
034 fuel rails, 034 fuel lines, bosh 044 in tank pump, walbro in line pump, aeromotive FPR, 034 fuel pressure gauge, poished HRE 540R in 19″, raceware man stud, 034 non stretch head bolts

So I think that’s it for now
Mike will also change the fuel lines and do the tune and I’m waiting for 034 fuel rail from Issam but that’s it for now. Once it’s done I’m going to get the car painted audi “brown teak metal” and I’ll put the car on nice wheels (just had a deal from a guy here with mint 19″ HRE 540R )

big thanks in advance to GURUMAN for being such a nice guy always glad to share infos with us, who did me a great price for his turbo kit and who did bring the B5 platform one step further(IMHO). And thanks to Mike Rombotis who’ll surely do a great job on my car, I think he’s one of the main reason for the succes of Guru’s builds, I wouldn’t want anyone else to take care of my car

more info to come as the build start, sorry for the weak english, I’m not 12 years old I’m just french 😉

juste received some pics of the car that were taken last monday

turbos that went out

not that bad I guess… here they are when I received them from Tial

Here are a couple of pics of the painted engine bay… the color choice is AWESOME!

Still waiting for 034 package to come in, so Mike can build the engine. Intake is back from powdercoating

progress! 🙂
more pics of the engine assembly

that’s it for now… ordered a Braille battery (to replace the odyssey pc680 a tuning shop in quebec here never returned on waranty since 3 years… funy they run one now on their shop car)
Also ordered a billet rear diff carriere from Lazslo

car should start soon…

Car is now brown since monday. We’ll let it dry for one week then spend some time polishing it before putting it back together. Should be running next week 😉

We took some pictures tonight, here’s a little teaser

more to come next week
