Let the fun begin...
So are you suggesting to do engine work (pistons, rods, etc) before trans? Dyno sheet when A9 complete was done in 2015 shows about 690 hp / 610 tq. Attaching the graphNewer A9 so those are good for high 8’s and 1000hp. I wouldn’t waste your money on a stage II. Those are happy at 800/600 +/- and your weak link at that point is the rods.
Just remember not to drive it like a vette lol - don’t load the engine up for long periods of time in a low gear - just downshift.
Welcome and enjoy it - fun street car.
Thanks for the info. Even when it gets into boost now and pulls... its aaaadddictingggg690/610 is super conservative and probably close to wastage on those turbos, I’d get a flex fuel setup with a retune and run them at 800/600 +/- all day long.
If you build the engine then you’ll need to move to a OneK transmission anyways.
Decent step up at that point in terms of price and why most guys don’t do it. If your going to spend $60k why not swap the turbos out at make 1300+ ?
It’s one of those slippery slopes.
Leadtimes are crazy right now for parts, so I’d just call and ask Martin for a retune.
Nice, 13K for an 09, thats really low mileage. Mine has 34K, and I got it from a relative with a terminal illness... so i got the "family" discount.Congrats bro! I just picked up a stock 2009 with 13k miles a few months ago and planning on doing a similar build.
May I ask what you picked the car up for? Curious to compare to what I paid. lol
That happens usually from wheel hop causes from lack of traction.Nice, 13K for an 09, thats really low mileage. Mine has 34K, and I got it from a relative with a terminal illness... so i got the "family" discount.
Oh- and with the alpha 9 build with stock engine/trans... i put the trans in limp mode for the first time this weekend...
