Title: 2002 Allroad
Post by: Ramrod on May 24, 2007, 09:51:22 PM
I am going to end up getting my moms 2.7T Allroad here in a little bit and I was wondering what all you can do as far as performance stuff goes like turbo stuff and what not. Let me know! Thanks

the usual stuff, chip, upgraded turbos, diverter valves.  Also consider H-sport sway bars, and computer alteration of the air suspension to lower the car even more.  Brakes, wheels, tires, etc.

Did you support the rear of the All-Road with the exhaust tips on jack stands?  Those are some tough exhaust systems  :o

Jon has you pretty well covered, but I will toss in my $0.02.

First mod should be H-sports to make the car corner better.  18" rims and 245/45-18 tires will also make a huge difference in how the car handles.

after that a chip will add about 70 hp or so. 

then you'll need to slow down so you will need new brakes.

if you can track one down also add an OEM trailer hitch for hauling around all the other toys.

when you get there you'll be where my car is now.  so I'll lay out my next couple planned mods.

next up is turbo back exhaust - downpipes (or at least piggy pipes) and a cat back exhaust.

then some larger intercoolers

finally will be bigger turbos.  the problem with doing turbos is the $$,$$$ cost.  they don't cost too much individually, but you need 2 of them, and to take advantage of them you need fueling changes with them, and upgraded software, and unless you feel like pulling the motor on your own, plan on lots of shop time too.  all in all expect to pay darn near 10K when you want to do the turbos.

last but not least, consider ditching the air suspension which comes complete with rather poor rebound dampening.  replace it with a nice set of coil overs, when you do that you'll need some spaers to get the coils to fit, so you'll either have to fab up your own or you'll need to buy some from sandia her in town, they have done some out of billet aluminum and have the c&c plans all ready to go.

oh yeah, one more - if you can find it, get a european sport interior complete with recaro's all around.  :-)

LOL, no, it is up on stands on the usual parts, those stands are holding the exhaust so I could install my rear sways.  You have to drop the exhaust out to get the bar in and out.

Don't forget that along with the turbos you need the $500 inlet pipes, different chip, 5 bar fpr (or complete fuelling kit $$$) new RS4 clutch, etc, etc, etc...

Does the Allroad use an FPR? Or is like like the B6 and doesn't?

Yep, just like the B5 S4.

Is it possible to change an auto Allroad to a 6speed?
Title: Re: 2002 Allroad
Post by: gragravar on June 07, 2007, 01:55:59 PM
one on audiworld has done so, but it was a nightmare.

look around on the audiworld allroad board for posts by "rallynut-allroad2001"  I think it was about 2 months ago when he completed the transition.

honestly, if it is a still stock allroad, youd be better off trading it in on a used manual one rather than undertaking the swap.
