first impression is from the sound enhanced RS6 exhaust with the borla tips. it has a nice, low key, growl when you start the car. not too loud, at all, pretty subdued but sounds meaner.

clutch being new and being pretty stout is a little changed from stock, it is smooth and without chatter but it engages pretty quickly. I'll try to be nice to it for the next 500 miles or so as it breaks in.

finally, the power. WOW. the K04s do spool later than the K03s, but not much - maybe just 200 rpms or so. but when the boost is on, watch out. this car is just downright fast. I cant believe how quick it reaches redline in first, 2nd and 3rd. heck, even rolling onto the throttle in 6th gear from 70 to 90 only takes only a couple seconds. In the next couple days I'll try to get some hard data, FATA times, etc.

In the mean time I am happy with a new toy. =)

So happy with it I'd probably go on a roadtrip with it if I didnt have a 4th of july BBQ/open house to get ready for.

Awsome news!  I am glad you have yor baby back.  Kinda remindes me of the T.V. show "The Six Million Dollar Man",  "We have the technology..."  Now you just need the running sound effect when you floor the peddle and she starts running.

but not quite as quick as a certain S4 (unless you were really trying on that one rolling start).  You were definately able to pull on me when starting from a stop.  next time I'll have to see how it runs without 4 200# guys in the car, and without the top box on the car too.

Overall though I am really happy.  it is a darn quick big wagon. ;D

Nothing cooler than a wagon with a box on top moving that fast! I had to run pretty hard to get past you!!

similar setups on stage III S4's have netted around 380whp.  I would imagine being somewhere in that neighborhood. Only way to know for sure will be go get it on a dyno.  I should do that soon.

I am up for a dyno day, if we can give it a couple weeks so I can get new intercoolers in, that would be good.

I'd love to do it again as well, as long as we can pick a weekend that I don't have an event.

We should plan it for the day before DATR so I can come down and hit the dyno too I want to know what my car is putting down. Can't be much, but at least I'd know. :P
