jcanni's 2001.5 Audi S4 Avant

Hey guys,

This is going to be my build thread/journal for my Nogaro B5 S4 Avant. I had away from the B5 Community for about 5 years after selling my Imola Sedan. During that time away, I was driving a B6 S4 and then an E90 335i. As the miles on my 335i were steadily climbing I was looking for a more reasonable daily driver. At the time, I was looking for a Jetta TDI Cup Edition and almost closed on a car in Ohio. However, it was sold prior to me being able to have a PPI performed on it. As fate would have it, I started my search for B5 S4 Avant. It started with me posting a wanted ad here in the classifieds. Astonishingly, I received a reply from the previous owner through PM.

When I had first saw the ad the car was way out of my budget and out of any sane person's budget. However the car was well sorted and only had 94.7k on it. It even came with a ton of maintenance records and the original window sticker. It originated from CO and made it to WA where I purchased it without even looking at it in person, and had it shipped to CT (CO->MT->WA->CT). My plan is to keep my 335i as my daily driver and this as my project (complete opposite of the initial goal). There are quite a few mods on it already and the first step is preventative maintenance and to progressively take it full stage III.

Previous Owners' Mods:
Airlift Air Suspension - V2 Management
DP's - Assuming SSAC as they have no markings on them
Daz Tuned
AWE Twin 1
2.0T Coilpack Conversion
Forge 007 DVs
Samco Hose Kit
SRM Side mounts
APR Snub Mount
034 Track Density Transmission Mounts
Stern Motor Mounts
B&M Short Throw Shifter
VEI Boost Gauge
RS4 Roof Spoiler

My Mods:
Old Piggie/Vast Tune
RS4 Engine Covers
R8 Oil and Coolant Cap
BBS CH Wheels w/MPSS
ECS Street Shield
OEM RS4 Mirrors
AERO Wipers
OEM Valeo Ecodes
RS4 Grill
Stasis Alcon 355mm Front Brakes
Wrinkle Red Valve Covers and Urotuning Coilpack Conversion Adapters
034 X34 Intake
034 Lobster Claws
Painted Y-Pipe

Day I got it off the truck




Timing Belt, Waterpump and Alternator were immediately replaced with all OEM parts from Audi:

Good looking wagon, John.

Need some more pics.

Question, did you paint the blue tubing yourself? If so, what colour paint did you use?

The previous owner had it tuned and painted the y pipe blue. I am assuming it is in the 300 (+/- 20) whp range. Not really sure though. Also, the y pipe I'm pretty sure was done with plastidip. it was peeling in places that regular paint wouldn't do. I have an extra that I am going to have professional painted to clean it up.
