    Where to start? (ASZ, 8L, PD TDI 2003). Thanks!

    Oh, a small to add, I have had around 80-100 fault codes since I bought the car (obviously something st*pid since it says ie.: quattro failure which would be great if I had a quattro but indeed I am not having one, it's FWD). The car was 'great' until yesterday, now I got the boost issue.

    Cheers,
    Overboost fault code? it will be sticking VNT vanes in the turbo...

    Well, I am having various codes. Starting from airbag,quattro, temperature, steering wheel positioning, and so on. probably overboost too. Sadly I do not have the list with me right now. This is my first Audi (and PD TDI), what is VNT? I understand it's something with the vanes

    (Also 5 days ago, the parking aid went wrong. Making the constant noise. Sensors are ok, according to VAG(?) it says low low volt in circuit or similar... but we could not find anything with the cables at the PA box)


    Thanks anyway!

    dont mean to be rude mate but can you not start your own thread rather than hijacking mine?

    Sure! Not rude of you, sorry, I may have not read all the forum rules. I thought the fewer the topic/thread the better the forum is

    Apologies!

    thanks mate, if im honest i think your boost problem is unrelated to mine, just by fully reading this thread from the begining theres lots of things you could try... looks like i have a leaking wastgate due to a previous owner fitting a kak turbo...

    No... different turbo all together... you will have to buy one from an S3, TT or LCR... or just get the wastegate ported... Bill @ Badger 5 does these all the time...

    Verify that the turbo you have is indeed a copy one first and log block 115 in VCDS... there is info in the stickies...

    bit of an update, spoke to badger 5 today and he gave me some pointers....
    1. hard wire the n75 straight to the actuator to completely eliminate that.
    done this and no change, still getting boost creep from 4000rpm
    2. connect a foot pump to the actuator to see if it holds pressure.
    done this by cutting a tyre valve up and slipping it into my silicone hose that goes to the actuator, pumped her up and watched the arm fully extend, held solid at 2 bar, no pressure drop.

    badger 5 said he's sure if these tests ended as they have and it is a copy ko4 then it is the hotside that needs porting... he quoted me 45 quid plus vat which isnt too bad at all!

    just getting the damd thing of now i assume!?

    so would logging that block make any difference now tuffty, i will if you think so? does anyone else have any opinions on something else it could be?

    correction number 1 is hard wire the actuator to the charge pipe!-) lol....

    Logging would confirm actual boost is exceeding requested boost but then we already know this as you have hard piped the boost to the actuator as Bill suggested so tbh its get yer hands dirty time... not the most fun job in the world on an S3...

    yay!-) lol! cheers tuffty.

    one more quick one, just had a read of the n249 bypass thread in the stickys, already done on my car but my car is done differently?

    the t piece on mine goes dv to n112 to inlet mani on the left underneath, sae then also goes to the inlet mani underneath on the left into a second feed, the remaining outlet on the n112 has a short piece of pipe blanked of with a nut??? is this just another way of doing it?

    You will more than just that tbh... injectors, custom downpipe, custom coolant and oil lines, full custom mapping, FMIC, rods at the very least...

    This type of turbo has been used in the past and does produce power (no exact figures as it is always subject to other mods and dyno lottery) but as said from a reliability point of view its an unknown...

    This is the same setup forum favourite Welly had bought for his A3 track car project but I know he has not done anything with it as yet... was going to be a forum first... I think Reesy is running a 'similar' turbo at the moment...

    oh my days, just had the s3 up on the ramps assuming access would be better from below???? getting that turbo of is gonna be a nightmare!!! where to start??
    does that down pipe even come out without droping the subframe?
    cant even see the oil and water feeds!

    guessing charge pipe off
    water oil feeds
    actuator hose and sensor... lol
    turbo off
    manifold off
    downpipe cut up to get it out??

    all back on with shine'y stainless bits and ported chinese turbo jobs a goodun???

    had a look at that aircon or powersteering (i assume) pump metal piping, whats that doing! lol weaving to every part of the engine before going back to the rear!!!??? lol...

    TBH if fitting the Relentless tubular manifold I think you would be better off taking the head off... access is rubbish

    there known too crack v3 has better metal and purge welded or somthing and Easyer too fit but as tuffty said v3 is a nightmare aswell taking turbo off,
    cut down pipe take it out up top! Lower gearbox on jack as far as you can disconnect gear selector cables and tuck em out the way I believe it or not can get mine off in about an hour!i do have a 3 inch already fitted makes it slot Easyer too fit down pipe you will need too lower subframe too change down pipe though!
