If you live in an apartment or you can't get your car up on ramps or stands but want to change your oil, then this is exactly what you need. This tool enables you to drain from the dipstick tube and refill like normal, without getting under the car or fighting with drain plugs. Not only is it convenient it's also efficient: most cars leave oil in the pan when being drained from the plug—sometimes up to a half quart. The extractor, however, can reach this remaining broken down fluid to make room for even more uncontaminated lubricant. Extract the extra work from the job.
For vehicles with factory direct tire pressure monitoring sensors only The Foxwell TPMS sensor integrates 315MHz and 433MHz dual frequency and can replace more than 96% of the OEM sensors on the market. Sensors can easily be activated and programmed by any TPMS tool on the market.
The stock throttle body is smaller than the supercharger inlet creating a massive restriction and directly responsible for power loss. ECS Tuning's in-house designed and engineered Performance Throttle Body Upgrade will do the trick. Designed with a smooth flow path in mind, we start off with a wire reinforced silicone inlet that resists collapse and is stepped in the internal diameter to create a smooth transition to the throttle body. We then went with a high quality OEM Mopar 80mm throttle body that is 10mm larger and has 30% more cross sectional area than OE. The final step is the cast aluminum adapter housing with port matched internal diameters to provide the smoothest flow path possible. On our test car equipped with IE dual pulley 93 octane 80mm throttle body tune, ECS exhaust (valves open, stock catalytic converters), ECS supercharger heat exchanger, ECS Kohlfaser Luft Technik Intake, ECS supercharger and crank pulley, we saw 415 HP and 385 TQ at the WHEELS. See below for full specs and detailed installation guide!

My passion for the automobile goes back to my childhood. Growing up in Paris, I was always fond of European designs and engineering. I also was attracted by what America or Asia could offer. What made me a true enthusiast is when I realized the true beauty of it all. No matter how different your preferences can be, we are all driven towards our passion for automobiles. My first small cars that I had was a Formula 1 Renault race car and a 1956 Pontiac star chief, I still own them, and they are still in good condition, then as my collection of miniatures and I grew, so did my automotive encyclopedia. I remember watching Rally races with their 6-speed manual widebody Quattro 80’s and was amazed by how their 2.1 L Turbocharged I5 sounded, unlike any other rally cars. (Another Rally car I was a fan of was of course the Renault Turbo 5) When I saw the sporting achievements of the brand, I knew one day I would own an Audi. As a graduation gift to myself, and all the hard work which I saved up for, I bought my first car, a Monsoon Grey B8.5 supercharged V6 3.0L Audi S4. Audi has brought a lot to the automotive world. In short, it is a brand, which has ONE history, AN impressive sports track record, and ONE cutting-edge technology QUATTRO.
When I first started college, I remember seeing for the first time a B8 S4. I just stared at it and thought to myself "what do I have to do to own one of these?" Then i had the the pleasure of going to lunch with one of my professors who just happened to have a v10 s6. I was instantly in love with the car. So here we are years later and I now own both a b8 s4 and a c6 s6. May not be the smartest life decision to own two "S" cars, but my drives are never boring about two years ago, I was browsing b8 s4s. I had one on my watch list that was dropped in price. However, it was about 10 hours away in the middle of Virginia. I made a call, went down the next day and traded in my Jetta TDi for the S4. As for my Audi S6, I was able to find one local to me that was a one owner car and pretty well taken care of. The previous owner had already installed a Milltek exhaust which makes the v10 absolutely scream. The torque the car provides in combination with the sound is just an amazing experience. As far as modding it, I only plan on getting some wheels for it. So far it has he lightweight crank pulley from JHM, EBs red stuff pads and upgraded plugs and coils from NGK. At some point the car may get lowered but that is a ways off
My MK6 GTI wasn't fast enough. sold it. Got a winter beater older than me and saved up for my lovely S4 that hopefully last me the rest of my life!!
