Hi

I don't want to know, it's very, very much of the feeling.

It is not possible to take it with me, I experienced that myself last August, so it doesn't matter, the main thing is fun.

That's fair enough Tom.
previous- 205 gti, 306 gti, 309 gtiGoodwood, S3, S4 V8 avant.
Now- C5 RS6 Misano red avant. Getting close to how I want it.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there!

Hi

I revised the construction again to get a larger entrance area.
Previously six honeycombs vertically, now eight honeycombs vertically.
For the modification I needed a second cover.

Are these the side blades inlets, if so why not open the hole lot ?

Hi

With a V10, below the air intakes are the air ducts of the oil coolers on the left for the engine and on the right for the gearbox (V8 also), since I have no radiators, it is aerodynamically bad to leave the surfaces open.

Hi

After four years of optimizing the intake channels, it was time to see how much carbon had deposited on the intake valves.

A specially purchased endoscope should provide information here without removing the intake manifold.

I am happy to see no carbon. :jump_clap:

Good to see no carbon build up, always a concern with FSI engines.

Hi

Since the driving experience has been inaccurate lately, it was time to replace the axle guide wishbones.
Thirteen years of service is enough.

Hi

At Happyparts there are V10 fuel pumps for little money ( 107,- Euro ) and had to be bought

Hi

This is about the higher delivery rate of the V10 fuel pump in the V8.

Because of its age, I don't trust the V8 pump much anymore.

She served reliably for thirteen years.
