    why the **** does my turbo look like this...
    [​IMG]
    have not driven it hard... its under boosting, its slow, (almost feels like a n/a) its hesitats badly.

    im starting to loose interest in audis very quickly.

    WHY??

    could be setup wrong, possibly ignition timing? not enough fueling?
    or a blocked cat/exhaust

    cat is a possibility, would go some way to explain the no boost and lack of performance.

    Have you ever had the car missfiring? the unburnt fuel from the missfires ends up burning off inside the cat, and melts its insides.

    My dads A4 had a blocked cat at one point and it was VERY slow (think 1.6) but also if you tried to accellerate it just bogged down, you had to very gently feather the throttle to get it moving.

    I've got a gutted cat laying here you can have cheap if you want...

    Does vagcom tell you anything?

    running lean, or not flowing through the CAT,
    if it was running rich and unburnt fuel was going through that actuallt cools down the exhaust system from combustion chamber backwards.

    get it on VAG com and log the lambda sensor(s), timing and fuelling

    Ah mate you really aint having much luck :(

    I would say there is something not quite right with the fueling or ignition as it seems your EGT's are way higher than they should be.

    Is possible you had a bad tank of fuel. I put £20 in at my local Sainsburys and shortly afterwards my car started to pink, cough and missfire. I limped it about and then filled it to the brim with Shells finest Optimax. Within a few miles things were settling down and by time it came to fill up again the symptoms had gone completely

    Haven't you had issues with a glowing turbo before?? On your old engine? or am I confusing myself?

    ye your right!

    I'm thinking the cats to blame tbh. as i presume you kept that from the old engine, and the same symptom on both leaves one common part...

    Yep that's where I was going..

    Although I think Alpine might be running the injectors off of his old motor too??

    a bit pikey, but you could try unbolting the cat from the turbo and seeing if you get any more power, or if it runs any better?

    Fuel trim is just a vagcom reading, not sure where it is, but gives you an idea if the ECU is trying to compensate for something.

    i did say at the start of this post i have a gutted cat that can be purchased for a small fee ;)

    Was on my 1.8T until just before the MOT when i swapped it out for a real cat, thinking it had simply packed up. Only once i got it off did i realise it had been gutted by some previous owner!

    Tenner plus post or something.

    You could do it to your own though. Just take it off, beat the insides out with a big stick and put it back on.

    You'll probably need the two gaskets too.

    I have gaskets i could add to your package mate. atry slackening the bolts so it blows a bit. If the power is back, its the cat, if its the same but noisier its the fueling

    Gut the CAT if you MOT isnt due for ages then its deffo worth a go. Personally id say its a blocked cat so deal with it in the best way.

    I did roll over a ginger tomcat a couple of moths ago.

    I got into my car, and let the handbrake off before I started the engine, for some reason.

    I heard this unearthly shriek, got out of the car, and behind the passenger rear wheel was this tomcat.

    The car had rolled over him, missed his head; his entrails were bursting out of his backside, eyes, ears, nostrils etc.

    He had become a flat-packed cat.

    Block 32 is the one to measure fuel trims.
