Good point...18 pound savings or just over 8 kg for our Ohlins Adjustable Coilovers for the R8, they are above the center of gravity height and half of that weight we consider unsprung mass. 3.6 kg at the front axle and 4.5 kg at the rear axle of weight savings. Plus a lot of direct benefits noted in detail elsewhere on top of the weight savings. Audi R8 Coilovers - for Gen 1 - Ohlins TTX Suspension Audi R8 Coilovers - for Gen 2 - Ohlins TTX Suspension-Most coil-overs, if aluminum bodied, probably save you a good chunk of weight.
Tom, if I remove all of this I’ll have to plate over/block the exhaust connection, unplugging the pump from the wiring is ok or does it bring up a fault code ?
The large tank doesn’t look easy to remove and to block the cylinder head hole doesn’t look very accessible either TomHi
If the valves on the engine for secondary air are removed, the holes in the cylinder head must be closed. (13)
The electrical control valve must stay on otherwise an error entry.
The pump can simply be removed, no error entry.
Active carbon containers can be replaced with a hose.
Very nice find now only if I can figure out the size I need for my gen 2 with 7mm spacer in front and 10 mm spacer for the rear.Hi
Just found wheel bolts in titanium for under $ 200 for 20 pieces
