Re: lowering my 4motion

to be honest if you get a good coilover kit I can not see it affecting the towing maybe make it better as it will be able to take the wait better

Re: Audi rs4 coilovers on a B5

as mentioned rs6/s6 or a6 suspension is perfect fit. I am running rs6 on mine.

But only fronts will fit but if you dont have the front engine weight then the spring will be all wrong.

tell you friend to put it on http://www.audisrs.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Re: Bits needed to convert V6 syncro to S4 2.7T ?

Re: Project V8 twin turbo may now begin .......

sounds like you must have something in there or maybe the fan is on its way out.

I never had to do mine but ask in the B5 section as others can share some light

Re: 2.8 30v engine any good?

Mine never used up oil but cam covers are a weak point new seal and some extra gasket sorts that out. Would that be the cause of a waft of burning oil smell I get from time to time (usually after pulling up at the lights after a decent run)? this could very much the case.

Re: Project V8 twin turbo may now begin .......

nope the 2.7t lump is identical to the 2.8 but with just a couple of turbos on it. The passat engien bay is very much like a A4/A6 so not a issue at all Yes i would love the rs6 lump but to be honest the 2.7t does everything i want it to do and haven't felt the need to upgrade.

Re: Project V8 twin turbo may now begin .......

engine and gearbox might cost you nothing but the work to make it fit and custom parts, time, wiring, etc will very quickly sort that out in my opinion but I wish you the best of luck and hope you can pull it off at very low cost.
