    • What a B8 S4 APR high boost pulley install looks like

      As you no doubt know (being an avid Audiboost reader, right?), APR released their pulley upgrade for the 3.0 TFSI supercharged V6's. These pictures show the process of installing the pulley on a B8 S4 which does not seem to be too difficult. So, go ahead and order up your pulley and do your own install. Pictures are courtesy of Elite Motorsports who did the install on this S4.

        Why? That install actually doesn't look bad at all.

        If Audi would have put this powerplant and dual clutch in the S5 coupe I probably would have been driving one by now. I guarantee they lost a lot of sales.

        I don't understand them only putting it in the convertible, it is just odd.

        The supercharged V6 was in the S5 cabriolet and the sportback right? Was the sportback never released in the US? It looked pretty sweet!

        Sportback was not release and likely is not coming from what I understand.

        I hear you, but if you are an Audi fan in the USA you are used to being hosed.
