    A5 turbo upgrade

    Hi guys, I have a 2014 A5 Quattro with a Gen 3 2.0t TFSI engine (CNCD). It has the IHI is20 turbo and I was wondering if a is38 turbo would be a direct bolt on? Has anyone tried this? Thanks in advance.[emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk

On my engine it keeps on knocking till the engine warms up and then stops.When i rev up the engine a little while cold the knocking goes faster following the revs. I noticed this summer...
