    Here's what the failed part looked like. No worky when both brushes don't look like the bottom one when sitting loose....

    Sorted out. OEM Voltage regulator failed in just under 6mths. One of the brushes somehow lodged itself in the housing and made it impossible for the spring to put outwards force on it to engage the...

    I recommend getting your valve body overhauled vs. just swapping this item. The item you are asking about is the new version and a replacement, but the wear on the walls of the aluminium housing...
  4. Charging problem out of the blue. Any insight?

    Driving down the road yesterday evening and out of the blue my charging light comes on. I see the voltage gauge posting 8-9V and mutter WTF??? Alternator was overhauled 5 months ago as I opted to...

    There is nothing wrong with the 5Tip. The failure items are a specific item that is common to all ZF transmissions of the era which has zero to do with power output of engine. I have rebuilt two...

    Finally got it landed hey. Coolio. I was the first to import an RS6 Saloon to Canada from the US the first day the RIV relaxed the rules and now we have another Calgary guy landing an Avant locally...

    Clearly we aren't speaking the same language, or not understanding things correctly from either party. You cite there still being a 1 second gap which I just don't understand. Members on this forum...

    Where exactly are the 'bolt on parts"? 4 year project, fabbed parts, redone internals. That may be bolt together, but certainly not bolt-on that the average owners with wrenches can swap out at...
  9. Well that's an insult. I wasn't forgetting...

    Well that's an insult. I wasn't forgetting whatsoever. High 10 vs. a mid 11 is a lot closer than high 11 vs. a mid 14. Clearly progress has been getting times faster and faster - it's just not as...

    I guess I didn't feel it was my place to correct everyone. I have been very clear about what you're up against. I've provided ample opinion based upon extensive knowledge about this platform...

    Well as a consumer I feel it's a more than hidden unknown internals and the factory it's made in. What matters to me is the fact that the car is visibly different, and noticeably better performing...

    Right, but the 5 series doesn't come with the M motor.... That's the point I'm making with the RS vs S models. They should have different motor options. That is what sets it apart from the rest.
  13. The exclusivity that Audi used to offer with RS...

    The exclusivity that Audi used to offer with RS models has been quashed with their latest platforms. The same engine is available in the S and the RS which I personally think is sacrilegious. There...

    Has it really been that long?? Holy hell. I guess that's why I feel fortunate to simply flip flop cars so that I always have one to drive while I 'renovate' the other.

    I don't recall anyone saying the manifolds were a problem. The discussion has always been the OEM compressors are the hard limit along with space. You gain space with the 6MT, to which you can then...

    That was kinda the point I made earlier today. The Benz should pull numbers like that. It has 50% more cylinders and 50% more displacement. It should be pushing 800-900hp based upon that fact -...

    I can't no. The reason I can't is because I have never had an actual dyno test on my car. My statement is based upon mathematical calculation for covering a certian distance with a set mass (car...

    You can hit the 550-600hp rather readily. I well believe a number of members on this forum at this point. This is maxing the OEM turbo's which we have ALL told you. We have also been clear about...

    Funny. Corbet is one of the few (count less than a handful) that have gone to the extreme end of revising engine internals, tranny, turbos, etc. As mentioned by a number of people in this thread,...

    Yes improper C-clip install. Was noted as such quite some time back when another member had the same problem.
