I've used this to repair Fiero fenders. It's supposed to work on bumpers with the right filler rod.

I have decided to have the supercharger sticking out of the deck lid there will not be any cutting of the intake but there will be a custom drive for the blower

ok i pulled the center of the intake out and i am thinking make a plate for the front that will hold a bearing and shaft with pulley and spinning the supercharger around and making a plate with a tube that the shaft go's through and another drive pulley to run the blower i can see how i want to do it but have a hard time explaining it

thanks motoracer838 i am not sure when i will finish the blower due to i need to slow down on my spending so after the manifold is done i may have to put this on the shelf unless things pick up at the shop but it will get done just maybe not as fast as i want

I guess the manifold is aluminum? My Ex had an 2002 Audi A6 3.0 and I thought it has a plastic manifold, but I could be wrong about that.

Your pictures are showing up fine, but I have to admit that I often have difficulty seeing my own images that I've uploaded (with PIP). It seems to be a cache problem which I need to manually clear before I can see my images in the threads again. Quite a nuisance!

depending on depth of scratches, I'd use one of SEM's flexible filler products like this:
http://www.oreillyauto.com/...s&pt=N0481&ppt=C0171

I tried an iron and plastic melt filler but the Fiero's plastic produced an oil that prevented any new plastic from bonding where I couldn't peel it off. Have had great success with the SEM filler though.

That works with Alusil but will *NOT* work on a non-Alusil block with a Nikasil coating.

Here's your chance to get the 360 horse S6/S8 version of the Audi engine.

If you go Chevy, you'll have to go back to transverse and basically everything you've done will be wasted.

the block is Alusil so i could do the honing but i was considering having the cylinder walls Niksill coated but after i found out it is $200 a cylinder i think not and why would i do a S8 engine it would have 360 HP and with the A8 engine with the blower set up i should be able to reach 500 HP at the crank I really should have a turbo but i like blowers . I am going to more than likely go pick up a engine this weekend due to i am finding parts are Very pricey and i can sell enough off this engine to pay for a good yard engine

I could do a Small block Chevy longitudinal but i would have to move the firewall forward 4 to 5 inches and put the gas tank up front maybe when i am done with this one i will do that just to prove it can be done

You could put the blower on the S8 engine, too...

In a few apps, Audi turbo'd 8 cylinder engines from the factory. Those manifolds mount the turbos basically straight behind the cylinder heads, above and outboard of the bellhousing. Do you have room to do that in your car?

The C5 RS6 for example had 450 HP stock.
