Had my Audi done at Rodgers performance. Paid 450$ dropped the car off, they gave me a loaner. I picked it up at the end of the day.

A shop should be charging about 2.5 hours for the front and 0.5 for the rears. That what I paid for at Metric. $450 for install + alignment seems about right. Although I'd recommend having your alignment done a couple days after install

Anyone in the Ottawa/Gatineau region would be down for a little meet and greet and/or cruise in the Gatineau park sometimes this month?

Rodgers performance quoted me 450 with alignment. Shop is immaculately clean, would totally trust them.
Unfortunately no I live in an apartment. Might be able to do it in the garage. All I have is a basic socket set.

Thanks for all the responses though!

Youll need a jack and would prefer to have a torque wrench to loosen the strut dampen shaft bolt. For strut spreader, I used a 1/4" ratchet.

I am out of commission until first weekend of june probably due to some engagements on weekends/sports during the week. Ideally we could all head up to luskville one weekend. I think Sam (613B6) will probably be wanting to go back soon to go mid low 11's. My clutch will hopefully be installed by then too.

That would work too. I'm pretty close to Luskville anyway, so it's not a big detour. I'd try it out just for fun, I've never actually done a quarter mile drag, I've only ever been to Calabogie a couple of times (not with this car though).

Dieing to get back, damn rain all the time. Got some rubber on now and a few more bolt-ons lol I saw GIAC went 11.5@120 so I know its possible with a good 60ft.

Me too....I have been having dreams of hitting mid low 12's! You are right though. Once I get the clutch in I am going to launch way more aggressive. Just got to find a way to build some boost, cut a 1.8 60' or so.

You shouldn't have an issue beating that time. BTW the GIAC cars pull seats and spare etc. I believe. Aren't you still full weight? You are already 100lbs over the curb weight of an R - big advantage. 100lbs + traction = 121-122mph.
I am going to take the passenger and rear seats out and run 1/8th tank of an E85/94 blend. Clutch should be in first week of June.

Good burnout and a 1.8x 60 and you be low 12s for sure.

Ya, I'm still full weight and heavier stock than an R. I should at least pull the back seats out next time I head up but I'm just so lazy for that .1-.2 lol

I ran a bunch of 12.2-12.3s last year with just a Stage 1 tune, nothing else. I should be at high 11s this year with all the goodies and Stage 2.

Have you been running at Napierville Paul? Or Luskville? If both, did you notice any differences in times?

That was at Napierville last year. I hate Luskville. When I had my G, there was always a difference of 0.2-0.3 seconds at Luskville because they don't prep the track most of the time. I would get better grip on regular roads versus Luskville (spinning for 100+ feet). With AWD, things may be different now.
