ha, I did the same. fitted in November, warmest winter on record!
I drove down to Leeds in the snow in 2010 for Christmas with F1's on which were nearing the wear indicators. Were not the best.
Got some cold weather tyres now though for when it gets chilly. Shame they have not seen any snow yet!!
After having the A4 off of the road for nearly a year due to work, life etc..
I have finally managed to throw a few new/replacement parts on and will have her running again next weekend all being well. While she's been off of the road (originally due to the head gasket) I've taken the opportunity to replace the radiator, belts, coolant elbow & sensor, a few hoses and various other parts.
My plan is now to make sure that everything is functioning 100%, install the new flywheel & clutch and then get booked in at R-Tech for a custom tune.
Exciting times, must be looking forward to driving the car again.
About bloody time....LOL
Yeah I'm really looking forward to driving it again. The L200 is good for many things but acceleration and handling are not on the list lol.
Mark - I'm aware of this thanks mate ha.
Anyway.. I'm considering going back to a diverter valve before I visit R-tech if I can route the hose back to the TIP without too much bother. If anybody finds one going cheap I'd appreciate it if you could let me know.
Your local Audi dealer will sell you one for about 30quid!
Or if your lazy, you can try ebay:
Genuine Audi dump valve 'the 710N' latest version DV | eBay
I was considering using the 710N but I'm uncertain of the amount of boost it could handle?
What's the point of swapping these to Forge etc on cars that run them as standard?.. If they can handle that kind of boost without leaking then surely it's a waste of money for most people?
Exactly, but folk like to buy the big shiney upgrade parts, even if they do nothing.
And unlike many of the aftermarket valves, the 710N doesnt leak, and doesnt need serviced.
Where do I sign?
I just need to find a way of connecting it now.
Have you moved your dv to the cold side?
I have a hose running back to the stock location to channel the air back across the bay.
Yeah it's on the cold side but the intake setup involves mostly silicone bends with very little space to get a T in. I might see if I can find a self sealing barbed connection that's the correct diameter as I've used these (but smaller diameters) for the N75 connection etc and they work really well.
My lower intercooler hose from the turbo looks like this:
Cant you squeeze a T fitting like that in and keep the DV in its stock location?
I might try one of these 710N dv's. Have a duel/split one on just now but closed it in nov to just recirculate.
I'm not using the stock TIP though so it's no easier than using the T from the cold side that's already in place.
If yours works ok as it is then I'd keep it and save yourself some money.
Over the space of about 5 years I must've had 4 or 5 diverters and dump valves and now I'm going back to an OEM design.. could've saved Â£Â£Â£s
Would look far tidier though, a nice small neat hose tucked away out of sight, rather than a dirty great pipe running across the bay.
I suppose you're right; I'll see how much room I've got to play with.
