Sweet! That's another thing my car could really use. What CR on the engine? The one thing I miss about the V6 vs the 1.8T is the low end torque before the turbo kicks in around 2400rpm. I expect chipping would help, but the extra displacement and a higher CR would help even more.

That should make for a nice quick spool. I always thought it crazy to built a 2.0 but drop the CR to 8.5 for a daily driver. It's fine for a track car, but you negate the displacement advantage completely.

100% Correct PZ quickest spool possible is my goal. I live in a very urban area and my ratio to city to highway driving is 80/20, So I'm not looking for no upper RPM beast but more of a launch and go kinda car and that should go great with the 4motion driveline. Hopefully when its all said in done to be a very reliable DD and hopefully will see a HP goal anywere between 300-350 which I will be more than satisfied with.

My favorite car to drive in the city was my 72 Olds Toronado. 455 4bbl, dual exhaust stock with FWD and probably over 400ft/lbs. It surprised many drivers off the line.

OK so I'm back to 4motion suspension 101 and I decide to just go for the gusto, I removed my Koni FSD/H&R Sport spring setup and bite the bullet and bought H&R Street Coilovers



I also (eh em) wanted to make General PZ Proud & Install my Hotchkis RS6 R Sway Bar & Hotchkis S4 F sway bar and as you can see from the pics below it a HUGH difference in size



Granted the rear was I tight fit but just installed the ends on the outter portion of the endlinks and wah lah

Front S4 Hotchkis bar installed as well

And after a few height adjustments.......


And my only battle injury, As my Jamaican friends would say " Ah Wha di bloodclot?"

Didn't take for a spin but I will 2morrow and report back!!!!!

I have not even opened the Hotchkis boxes yet! It's good to know that a new bracket is included, I was wondering where I would have to get one from. I plan to do mine at the same time I drop the trans for the clutch and install the new exhaust at the same time since it has to come off for the clutch and sway bar. Of course, I also have to replace the control arms and maybe convert the extra steering rack to manual. It should only take me 6 months to get to it all :(

I JUST picked up a b5.5 4mo 1.8t 5 speed wagon and you are doing everything I dream to do to mine. Good work. Looks killer
Thanks of the compliments bro, your gonna love that wagon with those options, I personally think this is gonna be a keeper and I'm pretty sure after a few mods you will feel the same

Really looking fwd to hearing the driving results after this upgrade and looking to do something similar to our 2000 GLS. Thx in advance.

Yeah after about a few days of some city twisty roads these bars are truly fantastic and I believe that summit can actually sell the rear H Bar for just over $200. The RS6/S4 swaybar combo truly change the way this car feels so I highly recommend them if you want to eliminate body roll on your 4motion vehicle

Are these the same bars used for FWD also?
