S4 TFC : version 2.0 operation 3L Widebody

Well it's been a while and I've dropped many hints about my plans but seeing as all the pieces of the jigsaw are in place I may as well get a thread going. So plans are as follows:

Body: Greg Howell wb conversion with c6 rs6 rear bumper with twin exhaust exit (same as Doug's)and loba cf hood.Front end will be reinstalled so dash centre console with sat nav etc, dash with be alcantara same as head lining and a new thin carpet installed aiming for the gt3 rs style with maybe a little more comfort.Colour top secret

Wheels and tyres: team dynamics pro race 1.2's wrapped in r888's

Engine : full LOBA 3L 750 turbos stage 3 heads oversized valves etc

Transmission : hoping to use the par engineering 1-4 gear set which allows me to keep my standard 5th and longer 6th for vmax

Brakes : b7 rs4 ceramics

As it stands just now LOBA has my engine and Greg just text this morning saying he has cleared his week this week so when I travel down this Friday I'll see a massive difference. Happy days

The huge pile of money at the start, with weekly updates as a time-lapse animation showing the pile being depleted!  

Like the sound of this. Although you might not have time to look at the satnav whilst whizzing round a track at mach 1!
StumpyRS4

Dont think this'll be much of a track queen Scott - too much investment.

Will be incredible I'm sure.  A regular at timed events I'm sure, but can't see Danny wanting to have this 'nudged' by another car on track!
S4Player

LOBA will be installing the engine mark for warranty purposes. It will be tracked hence sticking ceramics on and the new gearset but stumpys right it will mostly be used for things like inters and vmax. Exciting times indeed can't wait to see what Greg has whisked up for Friday

Cool, so you are shipping the car out to Germany also!!

Warranty on a big power build. Rare I would think?
S4Player

When I say warranty I actually mean peace of mind if it's installed at LOBA then if anything go's wrong there's no finger pointing if you get me? Means everything is done as LOBA insist ie new followers for new cams etc. yes car will be shipped out when Greg's done.
HEKTOR

Nice one danny, cant wait to see the progress and the end result!

I stand corrected. Satnav on the 1/4 mile may be necessary!

peterp1972

Savage build Danny,
I would have loved to do something like this with mine.
Lets see how this year goes and I might join in the fun

Sweet peter make sure your back for inters this year should be fun!

Good luck matey hope all goes as planned bet u cant wait to get it complete and finally give it a proper drive

As Danny says pallet of Engine parts in boxes is at LOBA workshop in Hamburg

Darius will set about inspecting and checking all components and giving Danny a report on what's needed to proceed

Danny has decided on a a full LOBA 3Litre stroked engine which will off course use all LOBA components and New LOBA LO750+ turbochargers , heres a break down of what's been decided so far

LOBA 3Litre stroker kit ( http://audisrs.com/about20561.html )

LOBA CNC deckcooling of the RS4 block ( http://audisrs.com/sutra178693.php#178693 )

LOBA Sports camshafts and LOBA full mechanical Valvetrain  ( http://audisrs.com/about22240.html )

LOBA CNC Stage 3 RS4 Heads machined for Oversize Valves both inlet and exhaust
( http://audisrs.com/about21015.html )

Supertec inlet and exhaust oversize valves and spring kit with titanium retainers ( http://audisrs.com/about20661.html )

Racewear stud kit  ( http://audisrs.com/about20657.html )

LOBA LO750+ Turbos ( http://audisrs.com/about20915.html )

LOBA 95mm Maf housing ( http://audisrs.com/sutra257510.php#257510 )

Danny allready has LOBA V2 carbon ypipe and our intakes and a frontmount intercooler, And think we supplied 980cc injectors last time round, so will just need to uprate the Fuel pump/s

Tuning wise there's a few options, once the shell is in Hamburg we will install and test run on HULKS tested low boost base tune we have.
calibra_se8

Sounds like an amazing project Danny, hopefully I will see one of these epic cars at Crail soon
Rasss-4

Godd Dayammm Danny you got doe to blow  
This sounds amazing, something ill want to see in the flesh. Sounds like its going to be some machine, hate to think how much this is costing  
Nez

Another Widebody nice one
aka_dk

whats happening with the B7 mate ?!

and you're mates still not sold his Imola cab with ceramics ... mmmmm

R8's going in May
Matt_D

Wow

GT3 RS green
S4Player

B7 is for sale for a sensible offer Dk ideally not wanting to sell till march time though, hence why theres no for sale thread yet.Just been taxed and I'm off down to Mrc for a service and health check on Thursday. You interested? My mate sold that to a dealer I think for cheap
S4Player

Gt3 rs green? Yuck lol
Graham

Sounds great. Much more my cup of tea than the stripped out car.

So it will run a LOBA sourced/supplied map too?

Yes Darius is very good friends with a great mapper That did the HULK's tune  he also owns a LOBA 3L , we have the tools to do the software,  micheal did Darius S3 and the BMW project car using his maps, but there's many good options ln Germany, Horsteiner being one but that's all later.
LeeT

Looking forward to the progress on this. Im pretty sure i know the colour you are going for unless you've changed your mind recently

Looking forward to this Danny.  Good luck mate. It will be awesome.

Othewise Erdal / Evos Tuning
arotished

You can put some pictures of youself for a start?
pjbRs

Sounds awesome Danny, sounds like a very special build. Be interesting to see if it stays on budget and what the finished article looks like.
How long do you think this will take?
Moonwalker

Try and build it to beat that Evo's 30-130 in 5 something second time, show the Japs what Ingolstadt is made of.

I don't like four pots
S4Player

It will stay on budget under no circumstance will it go over everyone involved knows this is the way it is. Of course I'd be naive to think its just going to work so the budget allows for minor things. My target is gti international exactly a year since it was first built in my ownership
peterp1972

Danny after seeing Ashes WB. There can only be one colour.

Avus Silver with more pearl effect. You want that purple to come through in the sunlight.

Really looks like an RS4 rather than just a Widebody.

But I'll wait and see if you can prove me wrong
S4Player

It's not avus . It's a colour that's never been done before

Cheers peter, avus is good isn't it?  

Danny, this build looks to be a complete monster of a car, just what i would want to do actually, but it looks like you are doing it properly. Definitely post up some pics as its going along though.

Have you got any pics of the car before you sent it off for a before and after comparison?

What sort of interior have you got planned.....semi stripped it seems? you can't beat alcantara dash and headlining, it looks superb  

and for colour.....so many choices if you are going for a full colour change....go wild, its gonna be a wild car after all!

You thinking of selling the B7 then? how come? you've done a lot to it and it sounds amaaaaazing how can you get rid???

Ash
S4Player

B7 is surplus to requirements and I don't really use it tbh so I'd rather sell it to someone who is. Interior will be full rs4 front (clocks,dash centre console sat nav and door cards) rear completely stripped with the multi point cage. There's pictures on the original tfc thread I'll copy and paste in here for comparison but it will be a mega change. Colour wise it can't be too loud because I don't want people to really notice me as such but it will be a nice colour and non Audi

Just had a great phonecall with hektor there I'll be receiving a whole load of new goodies thanks to him.Great guy very well mannered cheers bud I'll even stick a little sticker on the car for you

I don't know if it is too late or if you would be interested at all, but GMG is taking production orders for carbon body panels at great price:

310lbs is A LOT

carbon panels on a road car? no thanks.......

Thanks but too late and buying non oem parts can be tricky

When you going to spill on colour choose then danny?? Awesome spec it a wish list b5 for sure

I'm not ian lol not until it's revealed at gti international. It's changed twice this week but me and Greg both agree the new colour is best

Looking at those cf parts I've decided I'm going to look further into buying the doors seeing as all four are only 1000 dollars and the front wings, I all ready have the bonnet so this could be interesting!
andream88

The doors mate?????

They probably are the most important removable panels of your chassis (for safety).
Keep that money in your pocket and spend it on the engine

Might be able to share on some shipping costs...?
S4Player

What else can i do to my engine that I'm not all ready doing? I think using carbon parts will be cool and different! This car will be lucky to be driven tbh I've just bought an evo 9 today to be stripped and used on track so tfc can take pride of place in the garage! Are you buying parts stumps?
StumpyRS4

Probably.  However, I want to see them first and discuss shipping/insurance etc.

I wouldn't get them all, although I'm sure I could sell the OEM parts I've already got, but am certaingly interested in the 150kgs saving of the full kit, if that's true, which I doubt.
S4Player

Let me know how you get on my cars in primer next week so would need something to happen quickly
StumpyRS4

The post says 2-3 weeks for fabrication.  Add on shipping, customs etc.  You're probably looking at 5weeks before arrival.
