Reluctant sale of my B7 RS4 Avant to fund our wedding.

Very good example with very good spec and a rare find with *ALL* of the common issues / faults sorted.

Re: GT30 Madness

Yeah, neither were cheap. I think the stainless ones cost me £2k and the inconel were £2650 plus another £600 in ceramic coating. Apparently, welding inconel is a lost art-form so I feel lucky to have them, they're a testament to just how all-out MRC went with this car.

Re: GT30 Madness

Well those headers/manifolds/extractor are pretty poo! Those don't look like stock heads. Still, you can't argue with that output. They are wrapped with heat wrap. Its a good idea when you are pushing a lot of power. Stops too much heat escaping the exhaust. Obviously protects items around it but a...

It does a 10.5 quarter @ 149mph. Seems slow.

Re: Crackles and pops !

Straight pipes do it. I'd assume that removing all CATs on the OEM 'zoorsts would do the same.
My car was on a stg3 map but I don't think MRC had mapped any 'pops n bangs innit', it would just do it on the overrun, not on upshifts.

Re: GT30 Madness

I'd love to know more, interesting they're running it on a MAF. I wonder what driveshafts are on it and how reliable it is. Stunning power in old-school package, gotta love it. I'm with you. Would have thought they would go Speed/Density at that point... Guess it depends what ECU its running. Wideb...

No vid ? [emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk What do you want a video of? A car sat on a dyno? Go back through my posts and you can probably find one or search "MRC manual RS6" on boobtoob for a very old one. I've never video'd the car, I find it a little bit too "Readers' Wives" for my l...

Re: GT30 Madness

The previous gearbox 'apparently' had cryo treated 5th and 6th gears. Not that it helped, 3rd gear imploded, it probably had the old brass collars not the later carbon steal versions.
This time I just sourced a 'box and had it rebuilt under instruction from MRC, not driven it yet.
