    This is a network of websites dedicated to automotive performance so politics are not why people come here. However, this is an election year and one of the most polarizing elections in history. Everyone seems to be taking sides and Honda decided to side with Hillary Clinton. Why is a Japanese company showing support for a certain American presidential candidate? Well, probably because Trump wants to increase taxes on imports (which would make Japanese cars more expensive) and Honda doesn't like that. Let's take this time to remind everyone that the Japanese support their own and do not buy American cars in any significant numbers. They go out of their way to avoid them. While they no longer have the insane tariffs they once did the process is convoluted to get a foothold in the market. For example, American companies face tough inspections. They make it as difficult as possible for non-Japanese car companies to succeed. Let's take this time to also remind everyone that the EPA and CARB and already pushing performance cars in a certain direction and that it is only a matter of time before performance cars are gone entirely. One candidate intends to expedite this process. Politics definitely come into play in the current state of the automotive world. It doesn't really matter which candidate wins the presidency as performance cars will eventually be phased out no matter what happens but just remember that Japanese companies make a lot of money on Americans. It's a bit hypocritical to see them against tariffs when they do not buy American cars yet expect (need) us to buy their cars.

    If you wanted a 2016 B9 Audi A4 with a manual transmission you were out of luck. However, for some reason Audi is giving manual transmission enthusiasts a ray of hope. For 2017 you can get the Audi A4 Quattro with a manual transmission. This is a new 6-speed box according to Audi with a smaller clutch and magnesium pieces. This results in a lighter transmission. You can get a sport package as well which is available exclusively with the manual A4 Quattro. It provides 18 inch wheels, S-Line leather/Alcantara, a flat bottom steering wheel, brushed aluminum pieces, sport suspension, and Audi dynamic steering. This is nice to see from Audi but it would also be nice to see manual S and RS models again. At this point we should probably all just be happy there is any manual available at all. 2017 Audi A4 will be the only six-speed manual transmission with standard all-wheel drive in the luxury sedan segment September 21, 2016 | HERNDON, Virginia The A4’s redesigned six-speed manual transmission features an extensive use of magnesium and a smaller clutch, giving the A4 an improved power-to-weight ratio The Sport plus package includes S line interior, dynamic steering, sport adaptive suspension, and 18” wheels with summer tires for maximum performance from an A4 The 2017 A4 with manual transmission sprints from 0-60 in 5.7 seconds, a 0.7 second improvement over the previous generation The 2017 Audi A4 with available six-speed manual transmission and quattro® with ultra® technology, and exclusive Sport plus package offers the design and performance of an S model in an entry level variant. No other luxury manufacturer in the A4’s competitive segment offers a manual transmission sedan with all-wheel drive capability. The greater performance enabled by the newly-redesigned, six-speed manual transmission is due primarily to its spur-gear stage which replaces the shaft to the front-axle differential used on the previous models. The 2017 A4 with six-speed manual sprints from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds, an improvement of 0.7 seconds over the previous generation. Extensive use of magnesium, combined with open gearwheels, hollow shafts and a smaller clutch, reduce the weight of the transmission by 35.3 pounds compared to its predecessor, and further serve to enhance performance by giving the A4 an improved power-to-weight ratio. Exclusively available on the A4 quattro manual is a Sport plus package featuring flow formed cast aluminum 18” 5-double-spoke-star design wheels, available Daytona Gray exterior paint, S line leather/Alcantara® interior with sport seats, stainless steel pedal caps, flat-bottom steering wheel and brushed aluminum decorative inlays. Also included is Audi dynamic steering and sport adaptive suspension (-23mm ride height), both of which were previously reserved only for S4 models. The new six-speed manual transmission complements the performance produced by the A4’s 2.0 TFSI® engine which generates 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. A significant weight savings was achieved across the A4 model-line through the lightweight construction. The front five-link suspension continues to allow for greater steering precision and excellent handling through optimized steering-rack placement direct at wheel centers. The A4 with manual transmission also features a new quattro all-wheel drive system with ultra technology that is optimized for fully-variable torque distribution and efficiency. The new drivetrain utilizes an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch at the rear end of the transmission along with an integrated decoupler in the rear axle differential and weighs 8.8 pounds less than the previous quattro system. This quattro system with ultra technology allows for intelligent, proactive control of the all-wheel drive system to predictively modify the torque application as the driving situation or road conditions require. For customers who do not prefer the traditional manual-shifting driving experience, the 2017 A4 is also available with a seven-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission with front-wheel drive or available quattro® all-wheel drive. Pricing Detail: Model year 2017 A4 Manual starting manufacturer suggested retail prices; on sale fall 2016. MODEL PREMIUM PREMIUM PLUS PRESTIGE A4 quattro manual $39,400 $43,200 48,000 Prices above exclude destination charge ($950), taxes, title, options, and dealer charges. Dealer sets actual price.

See www.fueleconomy.gov for updated information. Your mileage will vary and depends on several factors including your driving habits and vehicle condition. Audi of America, Inc. defines the competitive segment as all-wheel drive, 4-cylinder vehicles including 2017 Audi A4, BMW 320i, Acura TLX, BMW 330i, Mercedes-Benz C300, Jaguar XE 25t Volvo S60 T5; 2016 Lexus IS200t models.

    RSL replied to a thread XDF Progress in N54
    I thought we started another thread for tables, but I can't find it. I go in looking for 1 thing and find 10 others that pique my interest. I keep a list as I run across anything that may or may not be of any use. This one has me curious enough to risk one post asking here though ;) Have you run across this in your travels jyamona@motiv? Any thoughts on impact for larger than stock turbo(s)? Seems low for peak HP and high for peak TQ on stock turbos, but stock has that weird VANOS shift going on around that RPM... ...and if that table thread did get going, someone please point me to it!

    There are a handful of Australian BenzBoost members with very powerful W204 C63 AMG's. Part of this is due to Weistec's strong Australian presence as the 3.0 liter twin screw Weistec superchargers are powering the fastest C63's in the world some of which are Australian. Well, you can add yet another Australian C63 to the list of most powerful C63's as BenzBoost member @RNS-11Z is gunning for over 1000 horsepower. How does he intend to get there? With all of this: Weistec Stage 3 Weistec Gearbox Modified valve body New standard convertor Weistec ice trunk Forged Pistons and Rods CnC ported heads Wave track LSD Autowerks Tune Upgrade fuel system 20psi pulley and tune He wants a low 9 second car: BenzBoost will be following his progress and as soon as the build is completed we will post results. Good luck @RNS-11Z, we're all pulling for you!
