    Hi Mike, ill make it work. Maf is all i need, and no map. TPS will be used to tip in fuel and tell n75 how much boost to make.

    Thanks for the tip on the ADR lower manifold- that might make for less porting seeing as it looks circular already- but Ill need to know the ID at the intake- if its too big i cant use it. throttles cant let in too much air or ill loose throttle resolution.

    So cable throttle then?
    Link the 4 together with a rod setup like the M88 BMW engine (only individual throttle bodied car engine to come to mind)?



    Don't understand the B5 hate... One of the best looking Audi's ever made IMHO, and they handle fine and go hard.
    Plenty of people build rocketship Commodores and a B5Q will out handle any of those... Neutral understeer? Try selecting a lower gear and opening the throttle to make the Torsen do it's thing!

    stuff everybody else, I think it's great what you are doing.

    If I counted up all the receipts I had on my B6, it would make most people cry... I don't really have any other hobbies, so that's what I chose (and the current car!) to spend my money on. Plenty of people spend on skiing, mountain bikes etc, so what's wrong with a car I say!

    Hi Marty, yes cable throttle- throttles have not been selected yet. Im looking for a set 36- 38mm

    Non of the torque based tuning- the ecu on this model does EXACTLY what I tell it. exactly how much timing I ask, exactly how much fuel I ask, and I open the throttle- I dont need an ecu closing electronic throttle or telling me I made enough torque- and let me reduce the timing for you SIR. No thanks mr smarty ecu, With the factory ecu on this car, Im the master and the ecu is the slave.

    Ha ha! Great thread! I know you'll make this work Ed and it will leave everything else in its dust when finished.

    Of course you're starting with a b5. You don't need the extra 150 kg do you? AND it's the best looking bodyshell of them all (could I be a tad biased?)

    Keen to see this build.

    Do not understand all the hate from the first page.. Isn't the B5 1.8t one of the more moddable engines from that period? Doesn't it lack all the excessive electronics/emissions stuff that the newer cars have? I don't know what many cars that can double their stock rated HP without any internal work..

    Doesn't it flat out look superior to most newer Audis? The only generation as a whole that I like more are the B4 era.

    Obviously that is all my opinion, as for the B5 handling "bad".. What?.. What?

    Anyway good luck with the project Ed, was looking forward to this post and keen to see some photos of the build in progress!

    So theirs been no posting but Ive not been sleeping, The 8374 is sitting on my shelf at Ringer racing- Im in no rush to have it shipped over yet, But I did get 034 to ship me one of their rear sway bar and brackets and have been busy in design of the intercooler/plenum/ ITB intake which is almost finished, the draft ideas are settled on and materials will be purchased soon to begin construction. I did grab some throttle bodies with dual butterflies, the primary butterflies are really just to inform the ecu of the desired power level and the secondary will be controlled externally from the ecu to provide high velocity porting effect at spool up.
    But I have been a little distracted with the 5 cylinder collection appearing in my backyard and shelves- The track car build will be a machine built for a purpose and some raw elements will take over from aesthetics as function will take precedence over form
