When you look at it on paper the Audi RS4 is all kinds of wrong 380bhp, 4.7sccs to 6'0mph and a stated 155mph - but only available as an estate car. That's superear pace, shoehorned into a family wagon. But at the same time, this is what made the first incarnations of the R 4 badge so right. People may say that the styling is bordering on bland and doesn't back up the serious performance, but that's just them being sidetracked by the fact it's an estate. Wheel arches that blister out 35mm wider...

You don't need lots of speakers to be loud, you need lots of power from the amplifier, and lots of power handling from the speakers. So if you have a single subwoofer that can handle huge power, this is certainly the amp to feed it. Rated at 2000W max, or ioooW RMS iohm, ths amp is mere than a match for most subs on the market, and at just 200 it doesn't break the bank either.

A pressure cap is found screwed onto the coolant header tank. The cap hasa spring-loaded valve, which pressurises the cooling system and controls its boiling point. It's also there to stop hoses from collapsing and prevent su'ging - the sudden rush of coolant caused by a rapid increase in revs. By raising the pressure of a cooling system you're able to ncrease the boiling point, allowing increased operating temperatu'es before boiling over High-pressure caps are available, but they can put...

Fuel Cooling

Engine oil isn't just a lubricant, it's also a coolant, helping to control the temperature of moving components. Under normal conditions, engine oil is kept down to cmpcraturc by water flowing through the car's cooling system and air flowing under the sump. But under extreme conditions - in highly-stressed engines or under sustained high-speed use - oil temperature can become too high for coolant to remove the heat. That's why oil coolers are fitted to most performance cars, in a w do variety...
