  • ABZ v8 tuning

    Hi guys. I’m new to the forum and am thinking of going from an mrc tuned b5 s4 to a v8 converted b4.

    I wanted to ask if anyone knew how to increase the bhp without going down some bonkers expensive route.

    I was thinking. Would a different v8 cam fit from another model? Is there a better intake manifold to use? Would porting and polishing work? Do you need to change the valve train for higher rev limiter etc etc.

    I wouldn’t want to turbo it..... yet...

    It’s an abz block.

    Any help appreciated.

        I wouldn't expect any spectacular power increase on normally aspirated engine.

          Ahc and akh engine maybe. I wonder if I’d need new valve train with new cams.

            Yes I know it’ll not be huge. But it’s more about useable power and reliability. I’ve got a 450 bhp twin turbo at the minute and it’s great but almost too much for the roads where I live.

                  I guess it's just that for all the hassle and amount of money you will gain such a small improvement that it is just waist of time and money. I would just stick to your S4

                    Yeah it’s more of a project that will eventually be turboed. The b5’s are amazing cars but highly strung. A single turbo b5 would be much better.

                      The only option other than turbocharging which is relatively good bang for buck would be nitrous oxide,for what you would spend tuning an n/a engine for power you could buy a b7 rs4 engine which are over 400hp from the factory,but it kind of makes it all irrelevant if the plan would be to turbo it anyway...save the money for that
                      It's a love/hate relationship with the S2,i love it,it hates me

                          400hp V8 - easy, just buy a BNS out of a B7 RS4
                          Panthero Coupé quattro 20vt
                          Indigo ABY coupé
                          Imola B6 S4 Avant

                            Put the V8 out of a B7 RS4 into a UrS6, more room in the engine bay and just as much fun, and Audi it with their LHD UrS6+ cars so you would have oem custom parts that you might be able to utilise.

                            But it won't a cheap exercise even doing the work yourself, as mentioned it might be cheaper to just buy an S2 or UrS6 and make it RS2+ and leave it at that.

                            Either way your wallet will take a hammering, it might well be cheaper to deal with the devil you know with your existing B5.

                            The other man's grass is not always as green and you might think.

                            Best wishes.
