Hi

So, RS5 manifold step two on R8 V8 engine.

With again revised intake camshafts, the V8 engine is likely to have 525-530PS next year.

I thought you'd have had some better tubulars made by now. That said, I guess there hasn't been any improvement on the previous OEM headers. Didn't Supersprint spend a truck load of time developing different sets that didn't flow any better nor make any more power? They did look beautiful, very Italian.
No matter where you go, there you are.

Hi

I do not know any exhaust manifolds from Superdprint for the R8 V8.
My goal was to take the short version of the RS5, because they allow a higher rated speed.
The old RS5 manifolds are too long.

Can’t believe you’re still going at this Tom!

Not sure if it’s good work or just wow ok then!

I’ll go with good work :)

Good work!

Hi

Here are a few pictures of how the four-inch air duct is installed.

In October of last year, I was on the roll to determine performance.
The last-mentioned optimizations have increased the torque.

So friends of tuning, the R8 body is maximally relieved and the V8 engine there is nothing more to optimize.

As a result, there is just another engine and that can only be the V10 engine.

A V10 engine is already in place and will be optimized for use in 2019 in advance.

Target is 670 HP and 630-640 NM torque.

Hi Tom, IMO, it will be very hard to achieve 670hp/ 640nm with the stock fuel system unless you some how can manage to fit the Gen-2 version with double rail of fuel injectors.

The most I recon you can achieve with the stock fuel system is around 620ps/620nm.

Regardless, best of luck and glad you have finally decided to go with an V10 :biggrin3:
Too much power is barely enough.

Hi @classba

If you have the knowledge that the R8 V8 injectors make more throughput than the V10, then you take these.
If the high-pressure pumps of the V10 Gen1 are too weak, then you take the amplified version of the free market.

Tom
