    Hope everyone's having a fun quarantine and staying safe. Had some time this weekend to get the bumper mounted after figuring out how I was gonna do it. The rear Euro bumper is mounted totally differently -- the bolts go through the bumper mounts and into the frame rail from the top, accessed under the trim in the rear hatch. I had to find some M10x90mm bolts and ziptie the corners. I'm still honestly not happy with how they're mounted but this will do for now until I get them painted.

    Had to ride around bumperless for a bit!




    Here are some shots with the bumper on. I'm sorry the car is disgusting and covered in pollen but I'm stoked, I know these are subtle changes but this is the way the C4 chassis should look without all the US bullshit!

    Well, I had sudden appendicitis and needed surgery so I'll be resting at home for the next week or two. On Sunday I took the cars out for some photos (literally went to hospital that night). Decided to re-pay for Lightroom and got a couple pics, thought I'd post them here!

    Haven't been on here in a while, life got in the way etc etc. Long story short, the Avant blew up but is being rebuilt. I let my friend borrow the car because he needed to get back from Atlanta to his house in Myrtle Beach and bring some parts with him. He hit some sort of debris in the road that severed the oil cooler line and the motor locked up. Took out a few bearings and the crankshaft but the rest is okay.

    The good news is the car is getting new bearings, a new crankshaft, forged rods etc etc which will make it good to 600hp or so. Good thing my buddy who blew it up is a mechanic lol. Also replacing every accessory (alternator, AC compressor, water pump etc etc) while we're in there. I was hoping to have it done by H2Oi but it's almost finished now. Here are some random pics of the teardown.

    And there is why I NEVER borrow cars from anyone LOL I'd kill myself if your engine blew while I was driving, even if I had nothing to do with it hahaha

    Anyways, glad to see you're making lemonade out of life lemons, 600hp will be super fun on this

    Nearing completion on the engine build. Ended up going with forged rods, ARP head studs, OE main bolts, Calico coated main and rod bearings. The car had a head rebuild a few years ago with 7A (higher lift) cams so that's staying as is for now.

    The car should be good to go E85 on the turbo I have already which should net 475whp or so. I can always go for a bigger turbo later but I don't know how much more I want to do lol. As of now it should be pretty solid at the current power level with the EFR turbo. Rods are the main limitation of these engines above 400hp or so.


    Block cleaned and painted. I really wish I had more pics of this process but my phone died in January and I lost everything. You wouldn't believe how filthy it was before.






    Also, I'm STOKED about this -- picked up some used KW coilovers for the avant and a rust free gas tank! Both are unobtanium. The KWs are the best coilovers available for the UrS4/S6, go the lowest, and they are really hard to find because you have to ship your uprights to Germany to be modified. I got them from a guy in Minnesota so they look a little rough around the edges but they only have 15k miles on them.





    Here's the gas tank, which some of you might remember I had to do on my last UrS6 too. It's a bitch lol.

    How did I not see this build before? I love the Ur-S4/S6 platform. Nice to see one getting a propper build. Looking forward to the progress.
