2009 Audi B8 S5: Aired Out S5

psadmin Audi, Projects

Once again we find ourselves being lucky (and talented) enough to undertake a special project for a unique client. We started out with the un-modded canvas of a tasty 2009 Audi B8 S5 and transformed it into a rolling work of art.

The Vossen Monoblock CV1’s (sitting at 20 x 10.5 inches!) maintain the blacked out look, but are actually Matte Graphite with a Gloss Graphite Lip.

2.5 inch Stainless Steel Sport Cat-Back Exhaust System provided by Billy Boat. The Quad 3.5 inch Polished Tips (as well as the monsterous roar) let you know that this is no ordinary S5.

Shown here is every part that we installed. A shot like this reminds us of a winter holiday morning as a kid!


The project began with the client wanting to further express the inherent raw power of the 4.2 Liter V8. This was accomplished by addressing the air flow of the engine. We installed a Carbonio Cold Air Intake by APR. This intake is made from Aerospace Grade Carbon Fiber and insures that the inlet temperatures stay nice and cool. The exhaust we installed is a 2.5 inch Stainless Steel Sport Cat-Back Exhaust System provided by Billy Boat. The Quad 3.5 inch Polished Tips (as well as the monstrous roar) let you know that this is no ordinary S5.

Designed and manufactured locally in Arizona, Billy Boat produced an impressive bit of kit. This exhaust’s fitment actually outdoes several well established names in the industry.

This is a “before” shot of the OEM S5 front grille and the unpainted metal bumper support that is behind it.

This is an “after” shot showing how we opted to paint the metal bumper support to complete the blacked out stealth look. The RS5 Grille installed makes for a night and day difference!


The exterior was enhanced by the blacked out RS5 Mesh Style Grille. Not being satisfied to simply install the grille, we opted to paint the metal bumper support behind the grille to complete the blacked out stealth look.

Perhaps the most dramatic transformation of performance and style came from the suspension and wheel combination our client chose. The Audi B8 Sport Premier Package by AccuAir Suspension is regarded as the pinnacle of air suspension and is bridging the gap between traditional static coil-over suspension and dynamic air ride tech. By integrating the AccuAir system with the OEM suspension, we’re able to get a dynamic setup that rides and performs like an absolute dream. The Vossen Monoblock CV1’s (sitting at 20 x 10.5 inches!) maintain the blacked out look, but are actually Matte Graphite with a Gloss Graphite Lip.

Here are two angles of the front AccuAir air “springs” installed over the OEM dampers. Show car stance with OEM comfort truly is the best of both worlds!

This series of images show a few of the steps to install the AccuAir System. From the tank, dual compressors and air management mounted on a bracket, the trunk with battery and air line terminals installed, the compressors and air management installed in the car, and a portion of the wiring to make it all work.

When you absolutely, positively need to be as low to the ground as possible.


Opting for a stealth install and operation, our client chose to mount the air suspension works in the spare wheel well located in the trunk. the 5 Gallon Gloss Black Tank was mounted above the wheel well towards the back of the trunk while leaving everything else below accessible. So clean and so quiet.
