Well its been a while, but my a4 is at Full Blown just about ready to hit the dyno for E85 tuning. Figured I would share some photos, info, and news in this thread from here on. I will update with Dyno results, videos of launch control shinnanigan's, photos, and anything hip.

The car came with a PES T28, that lasted me less than one week, then it ate **** and died. build begin??
Stock crank, polished and balanced.
okay so at first I quickly just threw everything into the car and ran lines so we could quickly get my friends lugtronic ecu in and start the car to make sure everything is okay before moving to cosmetics. This is what I ended up with.
Okay so now at this point we installed my buddies lugtronic ecu and the car ran great, so for some reason I thought I was try to save some money and go with Eurodyne for software. Horrible mistake.. What a POS that was, I gave the car to a local Eurodyne dealer and had them install Maestro, then they could not get the car to run properly on it. The fuel trims would peak from way too rich, to way too lean. my A/F was like a roller coaster going up and down. They kept the car for a month trying to fix it and nothing worked. So I told them to keep the tune, I got a refund, then I started doing my homework on standalone EMS's.
Also at this time, since I knew my car ran fine on lugtronic, I started making everything pretty.
Shave & Tuck.
Here I relocated my battery and washer tank to the trunk, Most people who shave the bay on our A4's move the ABS to the stock battery location, I decided against this due to something else needing to go in that location. So after some modifications to the stock ABS mounting bracket, and only two new brake lines I got it tucked away nicely.
Why i needed to keep my ABS away from the battery location.
GRIZzLY CATCH CAN YO
Now the awesomeness, and how the car sits as we speak
andddd a video of it at idle on Lugtronic http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DT6Sc...layer_embedded
At this time I went to Full Blown and got hooked up with this..
And thats it so far! The car is at Full Blown getting some final things wired in and then we will be hitting the dyno!
See you at the show
