    Mikehunt. I like what your doing with your parts list. Glad your opened up the motor. I have a spare motor that Im going to build soon. Currently have k04 stage 3 setup and its plenty of stupid power for everyday use which I do. But im also wanting more. For me building a motor would take time as im not used to it so i will be having a shop do it. To pull a 2.7t motor and and drop in one only takes me 5 full days. I could probably do it quicker the second time around. So if you had a shop build your motor. I wouldnt shy from doing a turbo swap yourself. Its pretty easy if you have a mechanical attitude. For your turbo selection I would definatly recommend something bigger then k04s or rs6 and loba 530 to make the most of your build. My next build will be go big or not at all. Just my 2c worth.

    The man obviously loves his S4.

    On a second thought, this silver sedan with MTM exhaust, the owner owns a cake shop somewhere near the city? If it is, might pay to check the turbo seals as its been on carsales for a long time, we test drove it, was so close to make the purchase.

The wiser choice was to spend your energies and money chasing the more, muscular and toned older sister whose chassis and drivetrain was more well develop and appears to have not dropped off in performance levels over the years, particulary if coupled with a boob job to enhance the bust size to match the booty. (no diff blow outs to be seen over the years and doesn't run out of puff where it counts). In frequent family get togethers and chance encounters down the street highlight what could of been, plus you only get taken to the cleaners in a divorce situation as opposed to being taken to the dry cleaners having funded the younger sisters boob enhancements to just keep up with the older sisters plain jane arousal levels. But to all in the know, obvious their fake and just making up for the inherent short comings in terms of genes from the family tree.

    Whats you thinking on clutch setup with bigger turbo's pushing out more torque on a built motor. It is me or is Mike's turbo selection going to be hampered by his clutch selection. Not sure what SS Southbend stage 3 clutchkit Mikehunt has, but my thinking if it hasn't at least got the kelvar disc, not convinced the organic clutch disc (480ft/lb) is going to be able to reliable handle the extra torque from bigger turbo's, let alone handling beatings its likely to see at the track. Also wouldn't think the kelvar disc option is all that robust even for rs6's or 530's.

    Re good prices on B5 RS4's. None better than the most dearest one starting with a 5 number, plus keep in mind who pays retail car sales advertised prices these days.

    Personally if its not a daily. Id go spec stage 3 plus full face again. Otherwise for daily any aftermarket rs4 pressure plate ( that has SAC mechanism) with the spec stage 3 plus disk with a metal theow out bearing. Can handle 650nm of torque, with some epic launching

    What's a wordsmith in these days of millennials strictly complying with communicating within 140 odd character limits. I blew that quota a 1/4 the way into that second sentence and perhaps lost most readers after the first line. Appreciate you persisted with reading my unconventional post to make a point

    Looks like you are well schooled when it comes to 4 rings and 5 door geniology and understand what bumping uglies on Tasi roads is all about when it comes to older sisters which have had a makeover. I'm thinking your also very well schooled (not a Millennial perhaps) when it comes to understanding / identification / inheriting a great set of stage 3 parts for doing such makeovers. Trust you have a Sach's clutch setup and Miltek exhaust setup for the same reason I have. Delivers performance in spades with out unnecessary and unwanted attention being drawn by going about its business relatively quietly compared to others
