My name is Beni I am from The-Netherlands. Having a great hobby what is cars specially VAG Cars :) We have a own group of friends called as team (bro-performance). (All just for 4 FUN)

After many months of reading here on this fantastic FORUM, and allot of great information I thought let`s open a new thread of my car. I love to take part in drag racing 1\4mile and want to set a own personal record with this car soon I hope.

Went for a AUDI A5 3.0TDI color (Misano Red) engine code (CAPA). I already have done a couple of modifications on the car :

90MM downpipe
76MM Exhaust system no silencers 100% straight pipe
EGR delete + EGR Cooler delete + EGR Flap delete
Swirl flap delete + Intake Manifold Flap Actuator Motors LEFT+RIGHT delete
Bigger air box intake 75MM + Pipercross filter +Butterfly flap delete
Darkside Intercooler
Audi A5 Facelift S-LINE rear bumper + Rieger RS Diffusor + RS5 OEM TIPS Black

More pictures will follow.

Welcome Beni! Nice build you have going on there.
Thank you so much!

90mm downpipe is quite large! ;)

Welcome and keep us updated on your build! :)

Thank you very much! I have chosen the 90mm downpipe yes, and it sounds great.

Also i hope with 90mm we can lower the EGT temperature later on with a hybrid turbo build.
Update :

I have removed the turbo for a bigger upgrade. It is still gonna be the same turbo (2260VK) but with some modifications on it. (Hybrid)

I have sent the turbo last week to a turbo company so they can do all the magic on it.

I expect the turbo to be back next week so i can install it, and test it.

More to come you can gues... :)

Hi Ben

Is your car a quattro (are all 3.0 tdi?) and what type of power and 1/4 mile figures are you hoping for with the new turbo once mapped?

Manual or auto? (again might be a daft question sorry)


Yes it is a 3.0TDI quattro. I do not know what the 1/4 mile time's will be i hope in the 12sec high?

It's a manual 6 speed transmission.

Can I ask, what's the very inconspicuous blue line in your engine bay? Have you also thought about adding a fuel pump to feed your high pressure fuel pump? Allegedly it is recommended when using 330+ hp


The blue line in the engine bay is the vacuum steering for my exhaust flaps. (Remote Controlled)

Soon i will post some pictures of my exhaust system.

As i have read and know the fuel pump i have the CP1H (Capa Engine) is strong enough for (400)HP.
Update :

Today i received the new MAF sensor. It's from a BiTdi much bigger than the original one i can say. (90mm) I had to buy a silicon from 90mm to 75mm for my intake otherwise it won't fit!

For the people that want to know why the BiTdi MAF sensor? It is handy to see how much air the engine is flowing. With the standard MAF it get maxed out on a stage 1 tuning.

Also the 4 bar mapsensor arrived.

Thanks for the answers, I have the other (CCWA) engine and I need an additional pump to my fuel line :/

What 4 BAR map sensor did you get? (Manufacturer/part no.) and where did you get it from? I ask as I need one for mine :)


On ebay you can find a 4 bar map sensor from bosch. (Make sure it is a bosch not other brand)
Part NR : 0281 006 059

The Inline pump you can take a pierburg 6.5bar.

I cannot place website links here, because i have not enough posts on this forum so i send you a private message.

Update :

The turbo arrived in good condition this week.

We have installed it together with some heat wrap on the downpipe.

Also installed the BiTdi maf sensor what is plug & play on the OEM airbox so that's a positive.

Soon i go for the dyno run, and see what we can get out of this monster setup.

Also must say at the moment there is some turbo lag because everything is bigger. I expect in de software tuning we can get this to a minimum.

Who is your tuner? (NL) I see some youtube videos from JP performance I think their name is.. not them by any chance?

Edit to ask about the MAF, did I understand from your posts earlier you bought a larger diameter silicone intake hose, but the BiTdi MAF fitted the OEM one anyways so the larger intake hose wasn't needed?


Must still find a tuner. Think it will be out of The-Netherlands.

Yes i bought a larger diameter silicone hose to fit my costum intake pipe that is 75mm. That's why.

You cannot use the current intake pipe on de B8 you must change it to a BiTdi A6 OEM or Costum made pipe. Last option i went for.
