    Exactly matches my observations.
    What's even more important - it's not as much about peak numbers, as about the area under the curve (difference towards redline is even more noticeable).

    Had a couple of (relatively) free days on dyno, so did some testing with the buddy's RS6.
    Bottom line is - for anything bigger, than stock turbos, stock intake is very restrictive.

    Turns out, I was wrong.
    Or, well, maybe not wrong about this specific intake design - I just don't have one on hand to test out.
    But the stock RS6 C5 carbon fiber intake indeed is a fancy ......

    There's plenty of room in the engine bay.
    This design decision was deliberate, I think.

    You used incorrect part to bolt it on.
    This small "aluminum looking" piece is just a spacer, meant to be placed on the leftmost 2 bolts in your pic.
    You need a big steel (black) part with 3 holes,...

    I don't see how pulling the engine is even remotely related to removing the fuel lines. If I'm not mistaken, metal part is on the outside of the frame rail (and enters the engine compartment from the...

    Speed sensor works as is IIRC.

    Front, near the rads. Thinking driver's side, but not certain.

    I don't like it, and would prefer the tube being too close to starter, than too close to the manifold.
    That being said, under normal operation it's unlikely to cause any issues:

    Bumper and front reinforcement bar don't need to come apart, when you take them off. Instead, you undo 2 long bolts from below (#32 in the catalog pic).

    No easy answer.
    Mild steel is significantly cheaper, easier to weld, has better resistance against "temperature-induced" cracking due to lower expansion, but can rot.

    Some random thoughts:

    Essentially same engine & same trans, so approx the same tuning potential.
    Engines don't last very well past 50-60K miles, if abused.

    S8 is more of a "modernized" RS6C5...

    Your planned turbo is air cooled, no water.
    So you'll have to delete aux pump & afterrun system.
    It's sole purpose is to cool the turbos after shut-off to prevent oil coking.

    Should be fine.
    If it ever rubs - take an angle grinder to it.
    I'm not kidding: it's just a casting with no vital components near it, shaving couple mil won't hurt anything.

    Possibly a hybrid powertrain, like in latest Panamera. If that's the case, then it won't be any slower, than your S8.
    Otherwise - yea, same chassis, pretty much.
