I have seen the car again in the CKC 'car of the year' shoot out. I didn't think you would beat the Carbon T70 (which is a work of art) but am surprised they gave it to the Lambo replica.

Nice to see a B5 RS4 engined MRC tuned special out and about. I used to have a B5 RS4 running 530BHP so know a little about the engine and have spent many hours with Doug at MRC. I look forward to some video in the new year....

TBH never expected to beat 2 show cars, mine was always built for a purpose, but it's nice to be asked. did offer to have a top gear style shoot out at end around the donington track where the shoot was with 1 point lost for every second slower than fastest car, but it was declined LOL think i could have done ok as the t70 kept spinning just doing the moving shot's LOL
roll on next year & get on track properly

x bow was race preped on slicks & the guy could proper drive ;-)

TBH cars is way over geared only getting into 5th, probably should have been down to 1st for hairpins to get turbos spooled up but just enjoyed the day

ready for next year now to get used to track days with it, takes a bit of hauling about and stopping but lots of fun - which is the main thing

absolutely love it!

it is no doubt going to take some time for you to be comfortable with planting the car. It is a proper bit of kit and no doubt a huge investment so overcooking it would not be a nice experience.

It is an amazing car and i would love to have something like that, fair play on you sir!
Now get some track time in and get your right foot planted and find your sweet spot in it Can see a lot more coming from your skills and this car in the future!

thanks

have pulled the box out to get it checked over and maybe alter the ratio's a bit to give a more track orientated gearing to 5th then 6th like an over drive
clutch out for checking too, just trying to sort everything ready for next year to have a doo

cheers

rs4 powered

Hi, very interesting post.
I'm currently fitting a rs4-b5 engine into the back of a vx220. Did doug at mrc manage to remap the standard ecu?
Looking online alot of the audi powered ultimas are using dta ecu's. Did you go for the rs6 turbo's over the gt2860?

Have a look at MRCs website and you will realise that they are one of the top Audi tuners in the UK, and yes they can map the stock ECU.

This is Doug's widebody B5 S4 doing 204.4 at Bruntingthorpe.

yes mrc did all the engine work, guided me to the best options for what i wanted, then re mapped standard ecu so you keep all the knock sensors etc which you loose with aftermarket ecu's

very clever people, very helpfull, highly recommended

can go to the car middle of winter, maybe not run for a month, press the button and it starts straight up and ticks over perfect

i'm on switch and button start, i fitted engine and engine loom into ecu, you'll need a throttle peddle as it's fly by wire, took it to them and said make it work, left it there for about a month and they fitted it round jobs
if you stick with standard turbos should be an easier job, depends what you are looking for, standard spec with remap and nice exhaust should push well over 400bhp

B5 RS4 with a remap/exhaust/decent intercooler is good for 450-470. Change the turbos and then it is over 500, after that skys the limit with some engines running 800BHP. S4 will get similar numbers with K04s or RS6 K04s.

i've got rs6 turbos running s3 compressor wheels, they need modifing too to fit on a rs4 motor, the incnoel manifolds that doug sell are an awesome bit of kit too, fantastic workmanship, got them ceramic coated to keep the heat down
speak to doug and he will point you totally in the right direction, i have total faith in him unlike most others i spoke to before i started the project, the b5 is the motor they made there name with
