    B6/B7 S4 diff mods (moved from general technical)

    Company called JHM and stasis do the conversion as an exchange unit in the US, and there's alot of DIY conversion 'walk throughs' I haven't read them yet, although I gather is a reasonably simple job, but it's a bit much for the time/tools I have these days. May have to get a decent walk...

    B6/B7 S4 diff mods (moved from general technical)

    I am in the market for my first S4, budget means I'm looking at either a B6 or B7, it will just be my toy as we have family car. Am selling my T5 transporter, so exact budget will depend on how that goes. I have done a bit of googling, as i was interested in the B6 "4:1 diff" modification that...

    Wipers, indicators, windows, horn, full beam, dash computer control thing failed

    So apparently that was done and showing no faults (have a mate coming on Friday with it to double check) have checked all fuses and relays, and can't see anything wrong, although,not sure I've found 'load reduction relay' to check! Ignition switch has apparently been changed before i got it...

    Wipers, indicators, windows, horn, full beam, dash computer control thing failed

    Oh, ok i thought it would be under the dash like the b5, there's several relays there, and idea what they do?

    Wipers, indicators, windows, horn, full beam, dash computer control thing failed

    Ok, i have an A4 2001 2.5tdi i recently bought with a pretty large electrical fault. So car driver perfect, but wipers, full beams, horn, indicators, electric windows don't work, they all stopped suddenly apparently. From what I've searched and found it's looking like an ignition switch, or...

    2.5tdi engine codes

    Just a little update, have been down to see Chris Adams, he was very helpful and obviously knows his stuff. So it turns out i have an engine mount problem, a leaky intercooler and paid way too much for this car. Will be collecting some parts and heading back to Chris for a few repairs, an egr...

    2.5tdi engine codes

    So I dropped the car back with the dealer, they're fixing a few things free of charge for me, then I'm planning on taking it to Chris Adams for a once over and some sort of upgrade, not sure how far I'll go yet. In the mean time I'm driving a Megane Diesel courtesy car....just to make the entire...

    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?

    2.5tdi engine codes

    So it seems Chris sells hybrid turbos, and injectors? Is this the case, i saw a post was not sure if that was a one off or not. Where about in London are you Chris? Would you have a look over the car for me, what would this cost? Do you also do remapping?

    2.5tdi engine codes

    Thanks for all your advice, it's starting to look like an AYM Block, head and internals with AKE everything else. So from how I've understood what I've read, and please correct me if I'm wrong... Assuming it's running the 180 turbo, injectors, map, this would then br running closer to 180 than...

    2.5tdi engine codes

    Is that definitely the case?? The part numbers I found suggest pistons and rods were the same. It has injectors and turbo from the 180. This is started to be more of a headache than it's worth :/ I have a 130bhp bora, which is the same engine as 150bhp, differences are turbo, intercooler and map...

    2.5tdi engine codes

    Thanks Colin , have been through some part numbers and it seems the block, internals, heads, cams are all the same. So a high chance he's telling the truth, just when someone lies once (and he's a car salesmen at the end of the day) it puts that doubt in your mind. Well I'll probably be doing a...

    2.5tdi engine codes

    Ok, i knew it was a second reconditioned engine. Its an AYM block, internals and heads, with new AKE cams, and everything from original motor (so AKE too) So if it is the same spec I'm happy with that, just want to make sure engine, internals and head are indeed the same. I've done similar on...
