Nice one! What power is she putting when?
Any issues with heat and the supercharger?

I have same idea of going with TTS, the amount of power it puts is quite spectacular, not your typical SC with +100hp, and even cheaper than most
Nice build Car looks mega!
I have the same front bumper and cannot fault it for neither fitment, material quality and price. I have KW DDC coilovers and love the ride but understand the pockets needs to be deep but nevertheless that's my recommendation.
Keep up the good work
that goes without a question nice to see your build putting same horsepower as TTS says it should, 600hp is quite impressive. Have you spoke with them about raising boost ? I remember that its limited to 1.0 bar, any info on this from TTS ?
I believe the C38 charger is maxed out at 1 bar yes, but im more then happy with the power. There is news of a C38r charger that is compatible with this kit and produces more power but i havent heard much about it or if its even been released yet.
Downpipes seems the way to go to free up a bit more power, but thats a transmission drop jobie.
Interesting news about C38r, will definitely have this in mind. 700hp would be perfect, all the M's would go down easily <a href="https://www.a5oc.com/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" >:-)</a> Got full Stasis exhaust, fresh K&N filter, fresh NGK spark plugs, just need to decide if I should go with SC or go for R8
This thread is seriously not helping my bank account.... good effort there fella....
do you have a link to the ebay special please?
Transmission insert arrived yesterday, got around to fitting it today. £25 non-branded from ebay, more than half the price of the 034 motorsport one and no stoop on product quality either if anyone is interested in one give me a shout and ill try get you the sellers details.
Out with the OLD!
And in with the NEW!
Was easy enough to fit, about 5 minutes work! Takes a 10mm triple square bit and needs torquing to 20nm. "excuse crappy photo"
Got around to fitting my P3 Multi Gauge the other day, super easy to install and really chuffed with this little mod considering i paid half the price of the RRP
Should have the new steering wheel and transmission insert here next week so hopefully i can get to work on that straight away
Hi all welcome to my build thread, this has been posed elsewere but probable more people interested on this forum! So ive been thinking about doing a build thread for some time now seen as ive got something a bit different but just never really got around to it, now that ive got a bit of free time I might aswell give it a bash
So i bought the car back in april 2016 with a few minor modifications including:
. Milltek exhaust system
. Rieger rear diffuser
. Honeycomb front grill
. REVO Stage 1 remap
Fast forward to early 2017 I began to get accustomed to the power it was producing so I started exploring my options for more power which was of course to supercharge. There were only two supercharger kits that stuck out to me and that was the JHM kit and the TTS kit. After a lot of hours doing my homework I decided the TTS kit was the best option for me as I am from the UK and the cost for getting the JHM kit to the UK with all the import taxes and duty fees was just mental! plus the £ to $ ratio had dramatically dropped due to brexit haha.
So off it went to TTS Performance!
What a difference it made, the power from 3.5k to redline was truly brilliant! No longer shying away from a tuned RS3 now never mind S3
And heres how the engine bay looks now.
Got the Audi R8 oil cap, Porsche coolant cap as I think the R8 one looks too bulky on these cars and got the black screen wash cap. Brings the bay to life I think. Just need to sort out that bland steering fluid cap.
So after a while of spirited driving there was one major thing that needed upgrading.....BRAKES! I was shopping around for a while and had my mind set on getting the REVO BBK and then I was browsing through ebay and BAMM! I saw some RS5 brakes front and rear with discs at an unbelievably cheap price so I snapped them up pronto. Maybe not the best set of brakes out there but for the price i paid i couldnt refuse. Think ill upgrade the pads to Ferodo DS2500 once these are shot.
Fast forward again to 2018. I always adored the look of the RS5 so decided to do something about it.
There was three main options to choose from:
1. OEM RS5 front bumper = too much fabrication work
2. rieger RS5 bumper = just looks wrong from every angle pretty much
3. XENONZ-UK bumper = easy fit, looks good and doesn't effect the side stance of the car (front bumper dramatically lower then the rest of car)
So obviously I went with the 3rd and best option in my opinion.
And here she is!
I just love the way it looks now! just need to close the gaps a tiny bit more on the sides somehow, any ideas? [IMG]
So that's it for now, hope you enjoy! There is probably a few minor mods ive forgotten but ill update here and there when i have the time! any questions Im happy to answer
Mods coming soon, soonish lol:
. P3 gauge (just needs fitting)
. Flat bottom steering wheel
. Coilovers (looking at getting Eibach pro street S) anyone have any experience with them?
. Alloy wheel refurbish (desperately needed lol)
. Maybe a few more cosmetic mods to the interior and engine bay
Sorry new to this is there a point of the transmission insert change?
Is your S5 a manual or tiptronic? I live around London and manual isn't enjoyable in our constant traffic, currently have an S-Tronic A5 3.0 TDI but am seriously considering an engine swap and fuel conversion to either an S5 V8 (with a view that I'd save up and get the TTS supercharger), or get an RS5 engine block in there. The supercharged S5 V8 route has the highest ceiling in terms of performance gains, but don't think I can go back to manual after enjoying the convenience of my S-tronic box so much!!! And have never tried a tiptronic box and not sure if I'd like it because the S-tronic is so immediate in comparison.
Sorry for my rant... LOL As per what others said, KW coilovers are awesome. I'm on air ride, but before that I had KW Street Comforts and they were ludicrously comfortable!!!
Congrats On Your Build!!!!!!!!
Well done mate on the conversation to supercharge your V8 amazing job bud looks really nice all round, wish I had the money spear to do mine mate but if I do I now know who to asked for some advice, enjoy it I am sure you are doing must be awesome power mate I know you have a permanent grin on your face every time your driving it.
