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 ...
