2018 Audi S4 Timeline

034Motorsport EA839 HPFP

Today we'll be installing the 034 Motorsport High Pressure Fuel Pump Piston Upgrade Kit for the 2.9L and 3.0L EA839 engines. I'm going to be installing it in my 2018 B9 S4 as part of my Stage 3 build to support a larger hybrid turbo from The Turbo Engineers. You'll definitely want to stay tuned for the rest of this video series!

034Motorsport Transmission Mount and Insert

The 034Motorsport Street Density Transmission Mount is a performance upgrade for the factory transmission mount assembly. It replaces the factory mount's soft rubber damping medium with a high durometer rubber, which provides better support at higher power levels. This mount is a direct, drop-in replacement that limits unwanted transmission movement and improves performance. 034 also offers a billet aluminum Transmission Mount Insert that can be used with the upgraded mount to further improve performance. This insert fits into the large void in the factory transmission mount, limiting transmission movement without sacrificing ride quality or increasing NVH.

Soft99 Brake Dust Cleaner Challenge

Soft99 Brake Dust Cleaner is a product that promises to remove brake dust from wheels. But does it really work? I put this cleaner to the test against the stubborn and excessive brake dust of my Audi S4. My car turns its wheels charcoal gray before it can chew through a tank of E85.

Fuel-It! Bluetooth Flex-Fuel Analyzer

I decided to convert my 2018 Audi S4 (B9) to E85 to boost performance. E85 is a high-octane fuel that can provide significant power gains in turbocharged engines. It is also very inexpensive, cheaper than 93 octane gasoline. The results of my E85 conversion have been impressive with 034 Motorsport's excellent E85 tune. My S4 has shown a big improvement in 1/4 mile runs and I'm down to just 3.46s accelerating 0-60! However, E85 ethanol content must be verified to ensure that your tune can support it. In my case I chose to use the Fuel-It! Flex Fuel analyzer paired with my iPhone.

Forge Motorsport Turbo Blanket

Your Audi S4 is fast, no doubt about it. But what if you want to make it more efficient and resist damaging, power robbing heat around your turbo? One option is to install a turbo blanket. A turbo blanket helps to prevent heat from escaping from the turbocharger hot side, while keeping the cold side colder. This leads to faster spooling of the turbo and faster access to power and greater efficiency. It can also help to prolong the life of other engine bay components by protecting them from excessive heat generated by the turbo.

Diverter Valve Failure - Audi B9 S4

Is your B9 S4, S5 or SQ5 experiencing a ton of compressor surge? It may be your recirculation valve failing. This has been a common issue across VW, Audi and related products over the years. There are always new revisions coming out and today I'm going to replace my diverter valve with a new one. I started getting horrible surging recently and traced it down to the original diverter valve which is an older revision than the most current. My car is right around 23,000 miles at the time of the video.

Today we install a plug and play kit that retrofits remote start to my 2018 Audi S4. If you own one of these cars you know there is no remote start, Audi just doesn't do it. This kit from 12 Volt Solutions makes it super easy to get the feature right in your original remote. This is the second kit from this company that I've installed and I'm happy with the quality so far.
