I upgraded with tarox pads and discs all round (as per sig), miles better than standard havent come across brake fade like the stock discs and pads. Also with brakes I believe the recommendation is 200/300 miles to bed in properly iirc.
Luckily for me I didnt plug the sensor back in properly after putting everything back in after replacing my thermostat the other day and it had come off, DOH!
For those that need an EGT found this on ebay AUDI S3 / TT / LCR 225BHP 1.8T K04 - 023 EGT SENSOR on eBay (end time 14-Jan-11 01:46:43 GMT)
I understand the probe itself is on the turbo but what people are saying is that it plugs into the cars electronics somewhere under the intake manifold, just wondering if anone had a pic to show where this is.
When booting it the other day WOT highish revs 4k+ in 4th gear+ felt like I'd hit a limiter or wheel spinning (but not doing either) until I caught the engine light flashing.
At first thought might be coilpacks on the way out but when I got home did a scan and got the following codes:
System too rich code is likely to bring on the engine light, possibly the maf fault too.
Replace the MAF with a genuine Audi/Bosch one and should clear those 2 fault codes. As for the ESP light, are you sure it's not disabled as there is no fault codes relating to that system.
Have you tried...
