    Man that sucks.

    No fluid from the slave?

    Thee only thing left is the line from the master to the slave.

    I recommend the ss braided line that usp motorsports sells.

    I vacuum tested the master -> slave line today, as it's still in the car, and it's fine. I'm going to revert back to a plastic slave and master cylinder (Both new) and run it until this Winter when I pull the motor again.

    I didnt pull the clutch up after I got the car started and I think driving it for 70 miles while on the floor (my though is that it was partially engaged) seemed to lead it to a pretty bad glazing, as i mentioned.

    So yea, FX400 6 puck this time around... I will not be adding the power I was looking to make previously.

    I did the Stainless hose that Steve is talking about with the metal slave. I was careful to route the stainless line behind the bolt-on tin heat shield covering the bellhousing part of the body to keep it away from the Turbos and heat. I had heard of the lines melting and/or getting hot enough to boil the fluid. Your line looks to be Ok in the pics but you will be able to tell I'm sure in person.

    You need to pressure test the hose. They can internally rupture at and bulge when applying pressure and still not leak.

    The metal slave you have looks non standard but looks adequate unless it's adding to the length and causing a kink in the hose.

    Pretty successful week with everything! Bought and installed some cabinets for the garage that I wasnt even looking for... and finished it off with a trip to NYC for school. It didn't even break a sweat, temps were on point, and the A/C was ice cold in the 85 weather! F*ck that traffic though haha.

    Not thread jacking my own post... but now that the RS6 is like complete and what not and I've put most 3000 miles on it so far, it's time for a new boyi.

    My 288,000 S6. I have no idea where I want to go with it, but is a solid car. Happy to be in another URS

    Looks like you knocked out that higher rpm flat spot with the revision...sounding good! I'll need to come and test drive it again!

    So, I dont know if this is plausible or not, but hear me out and let me know your thoughts...

    The clutch has been getting progressively better over the last few days of driving, somewhat hard at times, but still easy on the drivetrain if that makes sense.

    I can now roll in 3rd @60mph and as of today 4th @80mph (roughly 4000rpm for both) and it just goes.

    Earlier this month. I spoke with Mike the owner of Ringer Racing and what he told me in a nutshell is that it's very, very difficult to glaze these cerametalic disk.

    Now heres where I want your thoughts. The Spec Stage 3+ clutch I had gouged a ring in the flywheel and dumb me never thought it as an issue and just installed a new clutch. Is it possible that either the clutch or flywheel has broken in to the point where both are fully seated and can now apply the full face pressure, where as before (when slipping) it wasnt able to fully grab the disk?

    I don't have any opinion on your clutch woes.

    I do, however, have a barely used 034 TIP for the K26 (for your URS6 Avant), and an MRC Stg1 fuel chip (for stock injectors) I'd get rid of on the cheap, if you're interested. You would have to have your ECU Socketed if it hasn't been.

    PM me if interested.

    I'm already at Stage 2 power on the URS. Trying to sell the RS6 to BCY swap the URS however, but thank you

    Jesus. that would make an URRS6 (?)

    Out of curiosity, why swap? Other than the turbo lag, it's so much easier and cheaper to get 700+ HP out of an AAN than a BCY. There are some crazy Norwegians on S2forum doing 700+ Hp on stock longblocks with just turbos and fueling. The rods go if you have a fast spooling turbo, but they are throwing Holset 35's on there and making some crazy numbers.
    I do sort of miss my Urs6, but it was just too rough, and I spent too much money making it mechanically sound, and knew I would have $30-35k in the car by the time I was happy. And I could probably sell it for $9k. That's why I decided to just buy something I didn't have to mod to make me happy.

    I think it would make it a S6 Plus + lmao.

    The AAN is a fantastic motor, I've had 2 URS4's and 2 AAN Coupe's, both swapped by me. With that being said the sound an unhinged 4.2 twin turbo makes is purely amazing and the RS6 has won me over on that.

    I love the C4 Avant body, and I think a 4.2 with either a twin/single top mount setup peaking out of the hood would be perfect. Theres plenty of room

    Wow!
    Back in the late 90's, early 2k's, a buddy I met in college brought his UrS6+ Avant over from Lithuania. He registered it as a 200 wagon, so illegal as hell, but he was driving on proper FL plates! Unfortunately, it burned to the ground... Probably one of the few to touch the US pavement!

    So, this may very well be the last post for this build thread... Received the deposit on the car for pick-up in a week or two, sad but very happy at the same time. Started to practice Tig welding, aluminum sucks... but I'm going to need all the practice I can get.
