There are a lot of Audi guys here. There is a similar mod mentality. But here, it is cranked to 11. Welcome!

Hey welcome. Bravo on the GT3.

I had a hand in a mean A4 of that vintage...

How does this look?

I just got rid of my B6 S4 Avant for a tow / family hauler. I loved that car; true sport / utility.

Welcome, I still use my modified B7 S4 as a daily driver. Do you hit up NJMP often?

What do you have done to the B7? If you ever need any help / advice with it please feel free to shoot me an email. I'm like a walking repair manual for that car.

I haven't been to NJMP... YET

Nice little bit of mods you have going there.

What size piping are you running? 2.25 or 2.5?

You should check out the JHMotorsports Tune if you are looking for maximizing performance.

Also, ditch the aftermarket intake as it literally does nothing for the car. You have an auxiliary radiator sitting right below the cone. Heat rises and all that filter is doing is sucking in that hot air radiating from the radiator.

That brake / suspension setup is incredible though. I assume you take the B7 on the track too?

2.5" non-resonated, It has only seen the track twice in the last three years, but it is fun to drive around town. It is nearing end of life, bought it in March 05, trading it in within the month for a S5 or B8 S4.

The S5 is going to be much like the S4 but with the headache of FSI. The B8 on the other hand is a platform that has a lot of potential- i vote for this!

Nice, I have the midnight blue with a natural interior, 05 though. I think I like the black better!

Welcome to the Board! I also have a B5 S4 but it is a cabriolet. The 40 valve 4 cam V8 really pulls and sounds almost as good as our GT3's. No contest on the track however!
