Who would've known the 5.2 would sit right at home in this pig? And with 8" extra between the crank and the front bumper lol. I had to trim the hood to clear the HPFP's, but damn... I'm hoping to have it running by the end of the year.

Pretty simple and basic ~500hp build
-Long Tube Headers
-Intake Spacers
-Ringer Racing Stage 5 Clutch... For all the launches lol

Definitely keeping this one N/A. Call me crazy, but I prefer the loud, screeching V10. All turbos do is muffle it... plus I'd rather not have to deal with the tuning aspect of a boosted application...

Very logical! Excited to watch the progress and see it running

Engine and transmission came out today, this thing is just caked in grease. Gave it a really good cleaning and will get it back on to start making the exhaust relatively soon. In the meantime, it's time to start cleaning some valves. Here's 1 pass on cylinder #1, already a night and day difference!

Pulled the engine and transmission out today.. In all my time of having the 2.2T, 4.2T, and now this 5.2 in and out of the car, I've never once pulled the transmission. It was absolutely caked in shit! Gave it a thorough cleaning and am fairly happy with the results. I'm moving onto the intake valves in the meantime until my header flanges get here.. Man, these FSI engines are no joke when it comes to carbon buildup. Here's one pass on cylinder #1. I'm guessing I just need to do 2 passes on each and I should be pretty gravy.

Got me a Ringer Racing Stage 5 Clutch and Flywheel Kit. 925lbs of capacity on a single disk with a stock B7 RS4 pedal feel and 20lbs steel flywheel for ultimate daily drivability... yet I can really lay into it on the launches and donuts this time. Overkill for sure, but I'm all about that full send life when my cars do run... :woowoo: :woowoo:

Um.. Bolted the clean transmission back up, I have so.. much... tubing... for the long tube headers. Just need to get in my custom cut 3/8" Stainless Flanges. I was contemplating on making a new transmission mount crossover to bolt on the underside and to free up the room where the stock mounts go, buttttttttttt the stock URS can fit a 3" downpipe under the axles so I figured I can too.. Gonna be fun.

Guess that's it for now. ECU's are on their way to get the immobilizers deleted so I can first start it no problems. (Assuming I don't suck (Which I do)).

Here's to the Understeer Gods..
