Dear Tom, How is your news?
You have a great decision for R8.
I would like to check a part of your you configuration for my R8 V8
But I can’t find photo to check.

Please help me to buy & install correct details.

As I understand, I have to buy:
1. intake manifold RS5 C6 V8
2. throttle R8 V10 (best choice) or RS5 V8
3. Exhaust manifold RS5 C6 V8
4. K’N filters
After installing I have to delete catalytic converters & make new programme for engine.
Total it would be about 480-490 Hp.
Am I right?

If you have part numbers or photo for 1-4 details please give it.

Hi

I looked more closely at the chassis and identified shock absorbers and possible lowering.

Is there any information about the available front axle shock absorbers in relation to the length of the tube (cartridge)?


I found the dimensions.


Front dampers (FD) and rear dampers (RD)


1. Series FD 26,0 cm and RD 24,7 cm

2. H&R Monotube FD 24,5 cm and RD 23,0 cm

3. H&R Monotube "Deep" FD 23,0 cm and RD 23,0 cm
