Project blown S5.
Yep as the title states we have blown a 2009 Audi S5.
As if the 4.2L V8 dident have grunt as it was, we had to go and add a supercharger kit to this magnificent beast. We decided to start by dynoing the S5 with our MAHA Lps300 dynamometer to get some real world numbers! We needed crank numbers that we can all really relate to, not the arbitrary wheel numbers that so many have become accustom to.
The results were just what we expected 332 lb-tq and 334 hp on 91 AZ fuel. So it was time to install a PES 4.2 FSI supercharger kit. As Arizona's only authorized PES dealer and install center this was no problem. With our experience installing the S4 PES kits in the past we found the S5 kit installed in a very simalar and simple manner.
When all was said and done, the car laid down a staggering 473.3 crank horsepower and 435 lb-tq on our AZ 91oct fuel.
