changed the rear one already and set it to 120% stiffer





quick comparison OEM vs GMG





the GMG bar is noticeably heavier and thicker, also the bends are little different, but it all fits perfectly fine, bit tricky if done first time,

will provide some ride feedback soon, also the front one replacement shortly ...

feedback after installing GMG rear sway bar - the car fills more planted, significantly reduced body roll on hard corners, snappy lane changes on push, there is no noticeable difference to the car behavior if driven normally with the stiff setting, push it and you rip the benefits

installing the front sway bar tonight, let see the difference ...

Really nice mods. I really like "black optic" cars!

Kind Regards

p.s.: You should get CF brakes too

the GMG sway bars installed - set it to stiff ass and love the cornering, no real difference to ride comfort but on corners and lane changes she's sharp as hell, zero body roll, combined with dynamic steering the car handles like a rock star, highly recommended

there is few more points on my to do list with this project ....
the goal to begin with was to get 500HP on the crank, last dyno showed about 490HP, since then I got totally new intake (very noticeable difference in torque on low end and longer pull on high end) and more free flowing exhaust, so me thinks we gone passed the initial goal, will dyno before the disk change anyway

since the FL RS5 runs dyno with much higher readings on the wheels 250-260kW vs the original RS5 200-220kW it got me thinking, the engine, intake, exhaust, drive terrain and wheels are the same, so why 40-50kW difference, the only thing I found was much lighter brake disks, that's the only logical explanation at this stage anyway
I remember my mate ran dyno on ISF after changing the wheels only (to a bigger ones and little heavier) with almost 30kW loss !!??

so two and a half years of driving the brakes were due, got a very good price on those ones ...

pockets don't need to be deep if you do all R&D and most of the work yourself as I do, simply cause I enjoy doing it, might not be the cheapest hobby around but hey, some folks fork out $5-10k on wheels alone, I have not touched my rims yet, except powder coating them satin black, see what happens ... definatelly more updates coming, stay tuned ...

Cheers mate
Currently running ferodos - not to bad, interested in ceramic pads as well, saw something while ago see if I can find it again

Only ferrodo, ebc yellowstuff and brembo so far, the ebc are cheaper then ferrodos I think, should find more options soon as more and more RS5s rolls out, try search for R8 - same kit

Ordered the GMG sway bars for my car last week. At the time didn't realize you'd gotten them as well, but I feel much smarter for having done so now!

ok, new prototype rear exhaust section has been welded and installed yesterday,
it took us 8h all together of cutting, welding and try fitting, to make it harder the sides are asymmetrical ... wish I knew before starting.



there will be a 4th version of the front section coming soon as well, purely to achieve the sound I want, in regards to flow and performance now it is as good as you can get ...
will take some videos soon ...

the first box with brakes arrived today, so placed the disks on scale, Audi claims 3kg weight savings per corner, not sure at this stage how heavy are the original rotors.

Front - 10.7kg each


Rear - 6.2kg each
