      FINISHED!

      So all and all not that bad. I really need to tiddy things up though she is looking a mess. I also NOW have a chipped ECU with a GIAC chip, 40 extra HP and spikes at 20 psi feels like a totally different car! haha

      I had a little incident tonight, unfortunatly no pictures because during the test drive I left my phone and wallet at home

      While getting on the throttle my exhaust burned threw both driver's side air lines and dropped the car like a bad habit. The rear tire is a wreck, completely shaved haha fender is bent and paint is messed up. So I had the wife bring me a jack, zip ties, razor blade, and my extra airline. After an hour of rerunning lines in the 7-11 parking lot I got it home. I had to n-rig them around the open exhaust so I can get the car to the exhaust shop tomorrow. Its been a fun 3 days

      I think he'd need another transmission swap lol.

      Good work man must've felt great on the first drive before the air lines gave out. I'm sure you'll get it all sorted out.

      Go from audizine to here and you slammed it lol. Lucky there wasn't a big ol oil pan there to stop you. Once I get bags, next on the list is finding all the swap stuff for my wagon.

      I don't hit on anything like I used to. The front actually sits up higher now when I air it out. Don't know if its cause my subframe is shifted a little or the extra weight isn't pulling it down anymore.

      Weight shouldn't affect it; height should only be regulated by air in the bags (assuming everything else with the suspension stayed the same).

      Possible that you were sitting on the trans pan before?

      I don't know its kind of weird. Maybe I need to trim up the rain trays some more. I'm gonna be playing with my wheel set-up once I get my tires in. Maybe less camber and poke out back so I can tuck rim. Right now if I drive real low I bottom out on the lip of the wheels...kind of sucks.

      I'm also gonna get a new sway bar in the back and maybe an S4 sway for the front.

      rear beam = failcity.

      Indeed, don't know what Audi was thinking when they threw on an axle beam like they did with the transverse VW's

      For what it's worth, I run this kit on my car:
      http://www.mjmautohaus.com/catalog/p...oducts_id=4544
      And their description is wrong, it's 29mm front and 28mm rear. I'm the guy responsible for them putting that up on their website, BTW And even though it's "Out of Stock", Neuspeed parts like this are often drop-shipped so you could call MJM and see what your options are.

      Definitely notice a difference in the rear. At first I had it on the least-stiff setting, and put it to the middle setting and have left it that way for maybe a year. Feels great the back end likes to slide out in off-power scenarios, when the turn is fast enough and grip low enough. On-power is a different story though... rear end doesn't really slide out. Instead the car will just slide on all 4 tires
