What Do You Get When You Cross an A4, a 9-3 and a Yaris? This week's #insidethebuild !!!! Kaleb Thompson’s 2005 Audi A4 Who doesn’t like a clean, tuned, stanced A4?

[]Mister Modtomic

Took a long time for me to come around to appreciating the lines of the FD. I grew up in the '70s and '80s and this design was almost a spit in the face toward the design of the FC and its contemporaries. Alas, I guess they were on to something cuz these days I can hardly tear myself away from a nice FD (like this) at a Cars And Coffee!

[]Joe Munoz

Thank you :).

[]Chris Dirkschneider

Really do like this body style of RX7... just don't think I would want to deal with the rotary/vacuum nightmare that originally came with it... honestly, if I had one, I'd LS swap it!

[]Joe Munoz

The wankel rotary engine isnt too difficult to maintain and service once you understand how it works and stay within it’s limits.

The vacuum system for the stock twin turbos...yeah the joys of diagnosising vacuum leaks was quite challenging on this car, I’m not gonna lie. I believe that’s the reason most FD RX7 owners go single turbo instead because you go from 90+ vacuum hoses to like 12 or so.

[]Chris Dirkschneider

Yeah, I guess I never thought about the single turbo setups! It was always the vacuum nightmare that kept me from purchasing the ones I saw available (when the prices were favorable to the buyer!)

Good to see another daily/track Honda here! I decided to keep mine NA with a K24 for reliability purposes and I didn't want to deal with the potential heat that a forced induction build would create on the track. I hear if you have a good intercooler, good belts, good install, a supercharged Honda can be quite reliable though.

[]Dennis Lo

Yeah I've heard that with a good kit, a supercharger on our Hondas are actually as reliable as being N/A. I know countless guys on the S2K platform with SOS or KW SC kits who do daily their cars as well, no reliability issues whatsoever and definitely great when you're making 380-400whp and achieving that close-to-stock reliability

[]Michael Langshaw

Do you have any such supercharger for a M/Benz E-350 coupe?

[]Yves Vds

Mercedes uses Eaton superchargers in their cars. So you should look into that direction. You should also look if there are any mounting cradles available for your engine. Usually a supercharger is mounted after the throttlebody, so it requires a different intake manifold. In the case of my SportCross, it's mounted before the throttlebody, and thus it requires a bypass valve.

[]Gregory Garoppolo

Nice Sportcross Wagon! I wonder what intake air temperatures are with the intake setup so that the supercharger is pulling in air from right next to the firewall. I bet the car would pull a lot harder with a battery relocation and then fabricating a box to house the intake cone filter in the location where the battery currently sits.

[]Yves Vds

Good observation. The air intake setup in the picture is not the final setup. The supercharger is located above the exhaust manifold, so intake temperatures will be on the high side. I will finalize the new intake setup in the next couple of months. It will lower intake air temperatures and reduce the noise (supercharger whine). I will post pics as soon as it's done.

[]Gregory Garoppolo

I look forward to seeing how that comes out!

[]Gregory Garoppolo

Michael Fink is going to hate that! He designed the car to look as if the sides tapered in, this ruins that affect. I doubt it helps the drag coefficient in any meaningful way for a road car either, but this car has way more baubles on it than some wheel covers. Chrome surrounded everything, a plethora of decals on the back, and it looks like chrome mirrors and a rear door logo. Not my taste at all.

However, I still contend that the automotive world would be a very boring place if everyone liked the same cars and modifications as me.

[]Jordan Shuster

I block people when they do the same thing, because I'm petty. Or when you're waiting in stop-n-go for an exit, and some idiot cuts everyone and tries to cut back in right before he'd miss the exit.
