Re: S4B8 to a RS4B7

You won't regret it. The step in urge that occurs at around 5,500 rpm goes, and instead the engine pulls strongly throughout the rev range - this is because the standard map doesn't give full throttle in the first three gears until that point, and the MRC map removes this. Mine went in with 405PS an...

Re: S4B8 to a RS4B7

You can get more torque by a quick trip to MRC if you are UK-based.

Re: Partition / Tumble Plate

Post de-flapping (mine was part of work at MRC) the car isn't quite so metronomically smooth at low revs when cold, but it's not too much of an issue. I've nothing to add technically, but I'm impressed with your work and write-up!

Re: DRC failure-specialist recommendations required

Sounds good/logical. The only other question is whether it's possible to reinstall DRC - just so I'd be going into it with my eyes wide open.

Re: DRC failure-specialist recommendations required

I now have Shockerboy's KONI setup with H&R springs and love them. Also installed full Meyle HD front suspension arm kit, bump stops and top mounts. Probably about £1,000 all in. Ride is much firmer then 'MY' DRC was but its not harse. Service from Steve was spot on. Im very happy with this approac...

Re: DRC Broke... Steve at CRS sorted me out!

Right, and you are only about an hour from me, so this might well be the best option. Thanks for the replies, I've bookmarked this tread and saved your website.

Re: Michelin PS4’s Pirelli P Zero

The 4S are great in the wet, even from cold. Even better than the Goodyears, which I had thought were top-notch.

Re: Michelin PS4’s Pirelli P Zero

Are you thinking PS4 or PS4S? Go for the latter. There is some sidewall protection, but they are great tyres, wet or dry. By far the strongest front end I've had from any mainstream tyre over 13 years. Only downside is that they ride a little less smoothly than the Goodyear F1 asymmetrics that prece...

Re: Rear discs and pads

The bundle is Brembo - discs and pads. I find them fine, but I think those who use their brakes very hard would have other preferences.

Re: Car Tech One Brembo disc kit.

Probably not!

Discs and pads were £1,200 in 2011, so I reckon nearer £1,500 now. Callipers Nearly £900 (after VAT) each plus some for labour, which at £250 p/h soon stacks up. I'd have come home walking like John Wayne after a long day in the saddle...
