    Do you have the airbox and tubes? Could you take some pics when you have them?

    Could you please measure the diameters of the tubing.

    I haven't forgot about you guys. Still waiting on ACT's final decision before I post up my review. Should hear back by the end of tomorrow. Either way, I will most likely end up going with an ACT street disc after this since I can't afford an HPF at this point. ACT tells me they created a new ceramic material about a month and a half ago that does much better than the old stuff but, I think I'll just stick with what has been proven to hold up on this platform. More to come...

    Yes I have the airbox and the two inlet tubes since 2 weeks. I'll make a few photos, but that won't be before the next week-end. Installation is planned in the last week of July.

    Great, thanks a lot. It is very interesting to see what did they do to the inlet tubes and how the air travels in the air-box. Obviously free flowing box without the sharp bends found in the stock box.

    I wonder if there is a way to install the rear tube without lifting/removing the engine.

    There is. You just need to lower the transmission apparently. A friend of mine had it done at a BMW dealership, they quoted 5 hours for the job. I hope the independent garage where I'll have it done are equally capable...Click here to enlarge

    That is good news again. I believe upgraded twins will benefit nicely from this. Great that there is a reasonable way to get it done.

    My ACT Street started slipping already after less than 5k miles, though I blame the install since it was problematic since day 1. Since I've decided to go with RBs, I want to be on the safe side so I've ordered the Clutch Masters FX850 Twin Disc Kevlar/Ceramic model. Former_Boosted has been running this for years with no issues, to include on his current single turbo setup. I should be putting it on next week and will let everyone know how it turns out.

    He hasn't driven much at all or hit the strip with that clutch though. Not bashing him at all just saying given quite a lot of bad feedback on other CM clutches on this car I'm looking forward to seeing how their twin disk does on your car. Are you planning on any drag strip fun with it?

    The car is intended to be a DD with occasional track use rather than drag strip queen, but I don't know that I can resist taking it to the strip at least once when everything is set up just to know what it's capable of. I reckon I'd need a WOTbox to make it meaningful. But I really don't want to be the guy who finds out what it takes to grenade the AWD system. Click here to enlarge

    My tentative plan is once I get the RBs and meth set up I'll take the car up to Buffalo NY for a Pro Tune unless I can find a better option in the estimated 6-8 weeks before I'd be ready for that.

    Obviously I considered the HPF clutches, but I'm still worried that the high power and x-drive would create too big of a risk of welding the feramic material. My mechanic/installer, who has built a few 10-sec AWD cars, said he wouldn't use anything but twin disc at these power levels. The obvious drawback is the chatter, but everyone I've heard from said it is not as bad as people make it out to be...I reckon I'll be able to make my own determination soon. I know the FX850 has also been used on some B5 S4s running over 600whp without issues.

    My ACT has started slipping so I'm in the market for a new clutch. I've narrowed it down to either the Spec stage 3+ with LWFW or the HPF Stage 2. The Spec will cost me $300 more than the HPF but I'm uncertain about its power handling ability and the number of failure stories on the internet. However I'm very keen to try out a lighter flywheel as I've had one on a previous car and I did like it a lot. HPF has had some excellent reviews and is a bit cheaper so I'm leaning towards it.

    Has anyone with upgraded turbos used the Spec stage 3+? I'm struggling to find reviews of it on our platform...

    You need to add the trouble and cost of getting your stock fw resurfaced if you go with HPF. So the difference is not that much. Also in case you will have the car long and want to think long term, after the first resurface, the stock fw cannot be resurfaced any more, but the Spec fw can be resurfaced several times. If youšll need to buy a new stock fw that would become rather expensive.

    Thans for the reply, good point but I have only 12k miles on this stock fw as it was replaced with the clutch so I was hoping it was still ok. I've read that Spec has been good on certain platforms but have also heard a fair few negative reviews

    just remember what you are purchasing. since you went stage 3, you are sacrificing luxury (heavy dual mass flywheel *quiet*) for performance (light, single mass fly, has chatter at idle). now i'm not sure why you sent so high (in stages) when you don't even have upgraded turbos, but it could be smart if you plan to go for big power/torque in the future. good luck and i hope for a review after break in.

    EDIT: nm, read your review thread. you plan on upping turbos, gratz.

    Rule of thumb when it comes to clutches, only get what you need right now...overdoing it on the clutch is a really bad idea

    @dzenno which do you find heavier for your left leg? your HPF stage 2 or the ACT you had previously?

    Thanks bud, I'm still undecided between my options. I was swaying towards the spec stage 3+ option but I keep thinking about the (so far) proven ability of the HPF stage 2.

    Your ACT did really well considering the amount of abuse/miles you got out of it. The HPF is also working out close to $300 cheaper due to the high shipping costs to the UK.
