I have taken that into account, added in some extra angle steel on the inside of the runners. After the engine is mounted i will be adding in some steel tubing for added strength.

Update, Using a stage four 6 puk clutch disk from a Mazda RX8 with the Audi 2.7L Turbo Dual mass flywheel and Pressure plate. The Mazda Disc has the same size splines and shaft size as the 944, and only cost $40 to $60 for the Disc,versus $125 to $300. Will be using a Spec Push style throw out bearing. Lindsey Racing has the whole set up I will be purchasing. Measured everything out and it will fit nicely in the 931 Bellhousing I am using. Will post of pictures of it all set up this December.

Thank you. I am keeping the injection, sadly this model 4.2 is not the direct injection series. Out of an 2001 A8L.

Well, no kick at 5500rpms but at least you won't have to clean the carbon off the valves every 30K-40K miles. It'll still run like a bat out of hell though.

A little friendly advice if I may?? Those welds probably will hold, but if you want to try again it doesn't take but a couple of minutes to grind them back about 50% and just go over them. You're using a MIG machine?

The vertical welds you want to start at the uppermost point and weld downwards in a frown pattern (upside down "U"s) making good wall contact. This will hold the puddle where you want it instead of it dripping down on you.

Joining the welds along those sides you just do small circles, nice a slow with some overlap. I work as a full-time fabricator and make mistakes just like everyone else does. Nothing a grinder can't fix and a different approach until I'm happy with it. Can't wait to see this thing run!

Thanks CAS. I suck at TIG at this point in my life. I'll get there though.

Golten, are you going to use the original mufflers? My RS4 had the sport button with valves that would open the muffler and change the exhaust note. My daughter was 1 at the time and that rumble would put her right to sleep.

The Dodge hellcats have a similar setup, but it's purely mechanical. Not quite sure how it works but at a certain backpressure (or something) it opens the muffler.

Thanks for the input Wombat, I do appreciate it. i will be going back over everything and cleaning it up. And checking all the weld.
Im not sure of what muffler im going to use yet. Maybe just straight pipe it :-)
