Antigravity Batteries Weight Reduction - Audi S4

Today, I upgraded my S4 replacing the weak stock battery with a lightweight lithium solution from Antigravity. My car is heavily modified and I wanted da bit of a weight reduction. A light weight battery made sense more than removing the rear seats to reduce weight. Although the battery swap was straightforward, the car required adaptation coding to recognize the new battery, a process I performed using VCDS, as shown in the video.

Pops & Bangs | 034Motorsport Downpipe

I'm trying to get the Stage 3 videos out quickly for those following along and maybe working on their own build. Today I released my 034Motorsport Downpipe video which covers the full in-depth install of the catalyst. I'm going to have some audio clips coming soon as the next video will feature the ECS Tuning valved exhaust and sound comparison with the 034 catalyst combination. The install overall is time consuming, but not complicated.

034Motorsport SuperDuper Inlet

This thing is absolutely massive and I'm sure flows very well. This inlet mates up perfectly with the P34, S34 and X34 intakes. It works for the B9 and B.95 S4 & S5 as well as the B9/B9.5 SQ5. The support turbos include the TTE710, TTE810, Pure750 and TS2. This huge inlet should flow very well for that big turbo! The installation is pretty straight forward, but may require a few small tools to reach the inlet fasteners.

Gyeon Wet Coat - Easiest sealant ever?

Ever have just an hour to wash and seal your car? Gyeon Wet Coat is put to the test today to see if I can wash and seal my Mustang in under 60 minutes while the sun sets. If I was using a normal paste wax or liquid sealant there is no way I'd make it. Between having to dry an uncoated car and waiting for a wax to haze I'd be left outside with a flashlight. This product claims to be as simple as as a spray on and wash off application. Will it really work?

ShineMate EB210 & EX620 Review

I picked up my 2023 Corvette Stingray a few weeks ago of course I had to ceramic coat. For any great ceramic application a paint correction is a must! I chose Adam's Polishes Graphene Ceramic Coating Advanced for this beautiful car. Fortunately our friends at CARZILLA were kind enough to provide me two polishers for this test. The ShineMate EB210 and EX620 were used to compound and polish the paint to a brilliant shine. In this video I will review the two polishers and the ceramic coating.

034Motorsport Ignition Coils

Today I installed 034 Motorsport red top high output ignition coils and some fresh OEM NGK spark plugs gapped to 0.022". This setup will help support my Stage 3 build with the TTE710 Turbo. The ignition coils are supposed to provide higher output and aesthetics, and fresh plugs gapped down are a good idea for a hybrid turbo build. If your plugs and coils are getting a bit old, this is also a great option for you, but you don't need to gap the plugs down on a stock turbo.

Upgrade Your C8 1LT Visor

Good news! If you opted for the C8 Corvette 1LT trim, you don't have to miss out on HomeLink. Many like myself chose to stick to the base trim because the value proposition is insane. Nevertheless, the absence of garage door opener controls was frustrating. Luckily, with a mere $200 and a bit of time, you can achieve the ultimate driver's package with your 1LT.
