      hi,sorry to hassle you,as far as i can tell you are the only person to have done what i´m halfway through.
      a 1.9tdi(afn motor into a b5 2.5 tdi long story short i had a 98 a4, 1.9 great engine, rust, rust free 2.5 q avant, but 500,000 kms, oil leak from one of the heads and due belts and pump. what do i need to do to connect the engine harness to the car

        You need to swap engine wiring loom and code the clock set to a 4 cyl...

        cheers, I installed the motor compete with engine loom, the white plug not compatible and the red has the wires laid out differently. as i have a complete donor car i decided to swap the loom behind the dash that plugs into the engine harness and the clocks, key chips. theory being its a guaranteed success. how did your conversion drive by the way? and did you use both intercoolers??

      Hey man, I was hoping I could get some advice. I own a 2001 C5 AKE that needs cams, rockers, etc. I've found a set of used roller heads with solid cams for 700euros. Not sure of the engine code but they are stamped 059L. I could send you pictures if you'd like.
      Should i get these roller heads, or go with the kolbenschmidt kit for roughly the same money?
      I'd bring my ride to you, but I don't live in the uk
      1. adamss24
        adamss24
        I would fit new cam roller heads if I were you however they are not bullet proof with the hollow cams. It makes sense to just get the koblenshmidt cam kit as it doesn't involve ripping the engine apart and you save on head gaskets, head bolts and the like...you end up spending a lot more than you anticipated when you decide to rebuild as opposed to just swapping a whole engine in ! Hope this helps! Regards,
        Chris

      Hello Adam. Just wandering if I could ask a question about a vp44 diesel pump?
      After reading about the pumps and their faults, I'm Looking at an inspection, rebuild and replacement ecu. If the ECU is replaced, can it plugged back in or does it need some sort of coding? If so, Is this a difficult job and how much might it likely cost?
      I'm in south west wales so can you recommend any good guys?
      Thanks very much.

        adamss24
        Hi there, to do a good job I would say get someone like dieselbob to fully rebuild your injector pump. The pump wears internally and sometimes it's better value for money to rebuild entirely !

      Hi Chris, im in a bit of a situation here..would you be available at some point this week to do a cambelt job on A6 AKE? Front will be off, coolant drained and ready to access the belts. I got the parts ready too, Contitech belts etc, just picking up a water pump tomorrow morning in Leatherhead. I live in Reigate RH2 8QZ. Many thanks, Isaac Marques

      Hi Adamss24, don`t know if you remember me I sold you a black audi a4 2.5tdi Quattro avant a few years back now, it was on W reg(2000) full black leather, had the SRE racing clutch fitted also !

      Just need some advice on another audi a6 2.5tdi Quattro I have with 180 hybrid and PP683 nozzles, If you dont mind giving me a call on 07533607417 to have a quick chat at your convenience.
      Thanks

      Dear Adamss24. I hope you don't mind me contacting you:) I am a new member, a few hours. I have a beloved audi 2.5 tdi b5 c2000 that has a broken injector pump. I am wondering is it possible to fit a sh pump to these, or even fit an edu to my original pump? BTW it went on the way from an expensive MOT
      1. adamss24
        adamss24
        You can get the same part number pump and swap it over- no programming required. Please read how to set engine and pump at tdc as to avoid prolonged cranking which will kill the starter...

      Hello.

      Long story short, I have ** my injection pump. I currently have the AFB engine with AFB ecu. Does an injection pump from AKE will fit and work on my car?

      Regards from Romania,
      Paul

        adamss24
        The AKE ecu is different however early pre 2000 injector pumps on AKE were without the extra immobiliser in the ECU and worked without requiring programming however i dont know if they work as a swap on AFB engine with the old MSA15 ecu. I used AKE pumps with AFB ecu without bother on tuned projects but that's another story ! Regards,

      hi - I would be over the moon if I could speak to you regarding my 05 2.5 v6 tdi (BDG ENGINE 100,000 miles) its had a full recon injection pump,.. it does run but pours out with white smoke and just doesn't sound well when its idling. injectors have been checked and are ok, compression is ok. timing has been checked and apparently its ok?? dunno what to do now..

      Hi, thanks for your reply.
      i am not after huge power, am after a nice drive in a "sensible" car, my car is the 2.5tdi quattro, with god know what engine that's apparently been reconditioned.
      What sort of prices am I looking at for a once over and a remap?
      1. adamss24
        adamss24
        Hi, no problem, just bring it over and i will give it a remap and a once over for you. It will cost you £200... Thanks !

        Hi, as per our conversation, please get your car to me to read the map and see how much fuel i can get from the pump so i can tune your map as per your hardware. As i mentioned i offer 4 stages of power ranging from 200 Bhp up to 400 Bhp ! So if it's s4 performance with diesel economy you're after then i am your man ! Regards,

        adamss24
        Hi Jon, are you sure the crank seal is leaking ? Had many, many v6 and the crank seal was still good even with high mileage engines. I would say about £250 labour. It's a good thing to do clutch and flywheel at the same time...

      I am preparing for the camshafts job.

      Would you have any procedure/DIY instructions ? Even for the timebelt setting woud be great.

      it would be so much help for me, I am an engineer but a newbie into hard mechanics :)

      Hi Chris,
      I need to replace the timing belt on my Audi A4 2.5 quatro sport 04. I've been searching on the net as well as getting quotes from local garages & came across one of your post from Jan13.
      I generally repair my car myself but cannot do this one. Could you please let me know if you still provide this service? If so, how much would you charge and when could it be done? Thanks

      Hi there Adam, I recently had a reconditioned diesel injection pump fitted to my '05 Allroad. Ever since then the engine has been quite a bit noisier than before, especially when under load. Is this often the case with reconditioned pumps ? Cheers, Bill

      Yes mate - that is absolutely fine. If you come up with the speakers and steering wheel we can get that sorted. I can give you the keys that I've boxed up for you, too.
      When are you thinking of driving up? I am free all this week (week days).

      Hello mate.

      Apologies for the delay - I've been rather busy these last couple of weeks and when I did get chance to get online, ASN was down and wouldn't send the message I had written for you.
      I've found the keys and packaged them up.
      I'll send them ASAP.
      Did you get chance to find a steering wheel that would fit mine yet?

      Thanks, Stuart.

      PS - your in inbox is full, again! Lol.

      Hello mate.

      Seats are yours when you want them.
      After doing a little research on them, i'd like to ask for 350 for them.
      They are in excellent condition like.

      Thanks, Stuart.

      Hi mate.

      I have got someone just emailed me 10 minutes ago with regards to buying the car as-is.
      If I get nowhere with that by this afternoon, you could send me 100 quid as a deposit the seats are yours.
      (feel like this is a bargain for you!) lol.
      I'll be back in touch in a few hours - but I dare say I'm going to end up breaking the car, or removing the more valuable bits and selling as a lower spec.

      Thanks again, Stuart.

      PS - your inbox keeps coming up as full.
