I :heart: Vortex Haters.....

Setup:
Rims- 18x8.5 +35 no spacers
Tires- 235/40/18 (no stretch here haha)
Coils- ST's of course
GTF- Front-23 3/8 in- Back- 24 3/4 in.
Fenders- Front- Rolled and pulled.



This is the progression of my audi. Its never been an important car to me untill recently and i almost lost her in a divorce but im keeping her and now its time for some fun stuff.

A little history....

bought her






then got my dreaded headlights because the corners were falling off when i rallied


then painted stockers and tails



then some rims, way to good of a price but definitely not my first choice...



Then built a 3 in turbo back


then made a skid plate... (obtained legally....;))



Then the st's




Then the front mount....



Then i decided to finally spend some money on something nice and picked up some depos



Then some 55watt 5k hids

(comparison)




and this is her getting another new axle as i write this




Expect to see a haltech E6X install VERY SOON

Not too bad so far. Intercooler would look better if it were mounted higher and not hanging out the bottom of the bumper.

well my one of my friends evo's, by far the fastest car out there that day ran a 1.58 and another friends evo had about 300 at the wheels and he ran a best of 2.17 but was mostly around 2.20's, that lamborghini ran a best lap of 2.24 but he was a horrible driver and a cadilac ctsv with another horrible driver ran a best of 2.27.

me myself? my best was a 2.27.



I'm gonna put some pics up later of what i did last night

yeah it does. i forgot how good it looked with that thing on there. im glad i got my pipes out of the way so it all fits and you dont see intercooler pipes just a big ass intercooler.

im thinking about cutting out some of the bumper so it gets more airflow and looks neat in the middle

I suggest not, because I never see anyone cut an a4 bumper and make it look good.
