      Update: 9.2.2013

      Picked up an Audi with a snapped tbelt so decided to build it as well. Going to run a retrofit i made of the IHI turbo of the 2009 Audi A4s, for a while anyways. Then switching over to my new GT3076r sitting in the parts pile haha

      So far what is going to be in the Audi motor,
      Integrated Engineering Rods
      Cat3651 Cams
      Supertech Exhaust Valves
      OEM intake valves
      PagParts Upgraded Springs and Retainers

      All Brand new bearings
      Custom Intercooler setup, Exhaust.
      AWP block in a AUDI? The thermostat flange was 5mm bigger in AMB block so i machined the thermostat housing down to fit AWP block.
      IE manual Tensioner
      All emissions delete

      All parts either I have or on the way. Couple pics for clicks.

      ehh

      go lower.
      lose the wanna be audi led strips.
      take everything that is "blacked out" and un-black it out.
      toss the fake HIDs
      and put LBs on it.

      lol im already rubbing on bumps in front and they havent settled yet so itll be lower, audi a4 OEM hid's will be going in soon. Used to have silverstar ultra bright before until they burned out. The LED strip is gone, was a one time thing, got boring like the stock look.

      Thanks for all the feedback though

      i did a complete rewrite of this thread old pics gone, new pics in. been a year since i updated this. For the most part on the exterior I didn't change anything aside from 20th lips, more low, and fatter spacers. Now motor is a different story
