my guess would be near or a little bit better then AMS's numbers, which was I think 436whp. since shiv is doing the tuning my guess would be just under 450 on pump with no meth

Haha, yea... I'd say your forgestars look a bit better. Clean car none the less though. I was actually looking to buy a space gray 335 not too long ago before picking up the S4. I remember seeing pics of your car back when I was trying to decide on a color.

quick question: will these new turbos bolt up to aftermarket downpipes? E.g. AR, CP-E, etc.

+1

I'm impressed/surprised jackstands were the lift of choice?

I'd like to see some wheel well shots - the actual up close and personal of the turbos' home.

If anything I'm just excited to see a documented process of what it takes to pull turbos out.

I'm still surprised on the jackstand thing (that's kinda cool)

+1. Very tedious and time consuming with all the lines.

you have to remove some suspension stuff on the XI that you don't on the I. back in the day to remove the stock downpipes we either had to remove various suspension componenets or sawzall one of the pipes we choose the fun way

man seeing your s4 brought back memories. i miss my old s4. had a stage 2+ 2000 nogaro with matching alcantara. that car was such a blast. i was about to do the turbo upgrade, but then i thought about it. already had 120k miles and the 335 just came out. well that was a quick trade in for me.

how do you like the ASP pipes? i had their catless down pipes matched up to a UUC VM3. loud car, but so worth it. did you ever make it to their shop? might have be a bit of a drive from CT, but if you do, you have to go for a ride in mark's R32. i was down there while they were doing some of the last tuning for the turbo kit they put out. that thing was no joke fast. this was before they had put in the BBK, scared the shit out of me, all that go with no stop makes for some white knuckles.
