Hello to all, I am new to the group and would like to share my build specs as well becoming a regular contributor. I'm not a mechanic and don't claim to know everything about this platform but will say I continue to learn daily. Doing a build of this level forces you to learn a lot unless you have someone else do all the research.

If you would like to follow the progress of my build I will do my best to update/answer questions on the forum but my Instagram will always be the most current. Check out @Nok1ds For more pictures and details.

looks like a fun build you have going on there. whats your end game? turbo selection yet?
Thank you. It's been quite the journey so far. Am hoping to be running in 2 weeks.

Hoping to crack the 180's in standing half mile. I've got 2 different turbo setups but am waiting to release information until I've been able to run both. Will pick the set that performs the best for my application.

Considering budget already spent I guess you would go with Kratos Turbos? Did you install headgames valve springs aswell?
Budget is open ended lol. If you read my build specs you'll see I did a full port head job by HeadGames Motorworks and also ARP head studs.

As for turbos I have 2 sets from different manufacturers and will try both and the ones that perform to my needs/car goals I'll stick with. For now I'm not disclosing which turbos I'm going to run but have both in hand.

nice, look forward to seeing how it does. Feel free to reach out for tuning if need be.

I'm leaning heavily towards a 2018 Audi TTRS. If I proceed it will be stage two APR tuned, E85 with Pure turbos making close to 800whp.

those TTRS perform very well, i tune a good amount of those. Very nice and sneaky cars. why not go custom tune?

Honestly I have just started researching the car and unfortunately am still naive about the tuning.

I don't want to get off topic but feel free to reach out to my privately.

My main focus for the next month is going to be get the M back together, running, through break in of engine/clutch and finally 93/E85 tuning.

Exciting news, just received updated FedEx tracking and head arrives today.
