    Yeah, I love that data. My assumption was that people wanting to buy it were anticipating a bigger turbo later. But it's great knowing that until then there is no point at all in doing it.

    Makes sense if boost is the ECU target. But I'm still surprised it makes that much difference in the midrange. I wouldn't expect head flow changes to significantly affect cylinder filling until the...

    As good as it is I'm surprised they don't use it in a base model R8. To me it would make the most sense as the little brother to the V10. Except then they would have to turbo the V10 to the same...

    Also the baddest 4dr platform under 100k IMO for people who care about such things. And for people who like a little more ride height the RS Q3 should also fill that slot soon.

    Cool. Most people are thinking about dragging a BMW when they see this. But there might be a market for old inline-6 Chevys that would think about putting a junkyard N54 in their car if they knew...

    RS Q3 vs Ford Edge ST

    It'll be interesting if the Ford Edge ST works out as a poor man's competitive option to the RS Q3. The tuners are getting 500whp out of that motor in an F150 already. I wouldn't expect it to have...

    Interesting. No leakage? It almost looks like a coating that's cracking rather than the actual case material. But I'd be concerned too. Seems like lots of t-cases have had issues over the years...

    Hahah...that's what I was thinking after 2 seconds of looking at the picture.

    So is it time to update your signature for a new TT WR?

    Nice. Looks perfect for what you're trying to do. Hope the tranny cooperates this time.
  13. Anybody hear any news on the 2019 RS Q3?

    I had hopes it would be in dealerships soon, but the only info I'm seeing implies it will be well into 2019 before that happens.

    The mfg data seems to imply it might only be a couple hundred...

    OK, so the 10-11mph improvement includes going from 91/93 octane to E70?
  15. N54: I've also looked around a little in the...

    I've also looked around a little in the Sacramento area and concluded that it made more sense to drive or trailer it down to VTT in Hayward if I wanted to get turbos installed. I looked at shipping...

    Seems like it used to be that for enthusiasts everything was about the numbers and if all you wanted was fun you bought a Miata. So it's interesting to see Ferrari become the Miata of exotics :-). ...

    Yeah, the upside of a good DCT with AWD is that anybody can run a good time. The downside is that ANYBODY can run a good time :-). I admit that part of the fun of my cars over the years has been...

    Yeah, a big turbo is key to solving problems at high elevation. Except that everything is laggy anyway up there so a big turbo is REALLY laggy. You have to put a lot of effort into anti lag...

    Nice. My Mitsubishi Galant used to run about exactly the same times at Bandimere in the same conditions. It's so cool so see these near stock cars doing what it took me so much experimentation and...

    I like how they breathe. I'm used to 4g63s and N54s that stop breathing pretty early on the stock cams and heads. As a result the numbers are getting good even before going to insane boost levels.

    Yeah, it should make a great daily driver. Plenty of reliable performance if you don't need the last tenth, comfortable for a family of 4 for anything short of a multiweek road trip, the right...
  22. Happy to see the official announcement of the US RSQ3 coming

    Hi, just coming in from the BMW N54 side. Been watching RS3s like everybody else, but was happy to see confirmation on the RSQ3. I might be willing to compromise ultimate performance for a little...

    Yeah, when you need 20% less fuel (and make 20% less power) that's a lot of margin. I took advantage of that too when I lived in Denver. It's all good as long as you don't post dyno charts with the...

    Jon has a long history in the Colorado turbo import scene, both with his own shop and he was also with AR Design for a while if anybody here remembers their downpipes before everything got so cheap. ...

    Sorry I forgot that you were on the sequential with a high first. I misread it as you launching in 2nd on the stock transmission. If you were determined to build a drag car with that transmission...
