    Exhaust valve mod - alternative

    I put the car up on my old stool drive up ramps (lifted the back up about a foot) and from there I was able to get a small socket onto them). Be careful when pulling the actuator off - it obviously needs to come off 'straight up' to come clear of the bolts and it's made of plastic :-)

    How to make your B9 RS4 sound like a B8 for £20..

    I tried taking the actuator off the exhaust valve, it's COMPLETELY different to the sports exhaust on the S5, three bolts instead of two, the actuator has a fork on it which seems to interact directly with the valve disk rather than going via a spring - there is still a spring in there thought...

    How to make your B9 RS4 sound like a B8 for £20..

    Re unplugging the valves...on my old B9 S5 I found that if you take the actuators off the exhaust (two bolts on the top) there are two springy bits of metal - if you start the car, put it in sports/dynamic you will hear the valves open, you can then turn the engine off, undo the bolts and take...

    Exhaust valve mod - alternative

    I was looking through this thread: https://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/s5-exhaust-valve-mod.327005/ I gave the mod a go and it works great (no more single black pipe and better sound - did seem to get better over time too which was odd). When I scanned the car (ODBEleven) I saw the error...

    2.5 TDi Buying advice

    Haven't been on the forum for some time - used to have an A4 1.8T - loved the car but ended up selling and moving on. Now looking to buy another Audi, I have a budget up to £6,000 and was looking for a 2.5TDi, ideally an automatic Avant. I've seen a mixture for sale around this money so...

    330 BHP A4 Ebay

    Hi, Didn't sell it - standard Quattro Sports are going for around £3,500 to £4,000 on Autotrader and this has had another £25,000 plus spent on it over the time I've had it. The logic is there - to buy an A4 and do the work would be I recon a minimum of £3,500 plus what £6,000 for a BT...

    330 BHP A4 Ebay

    Hi. I've not been on the forum in ages; it's my car on ebay...the Audi has to go to pay for solicitors bills and hopefully a bit towards the settlement (really chuffed about that btw, especially as I literally just got it back). JBS spent hours and hours on the car and didn't let me have...

    Koni or Eibach suspension (shocks & springs)

    My opinion - If considering the ARB route don't fit anything that strengthens the front - this will give you more understeer and does little to improve handing. I fitted a Whiteline racing rear ARB to my Quattro Sport with Eiback springs and standard dampers, understeer is almost completely...

    How many of you guys have replaced your N75 valves?

    The N75 controls the point at which the wastegate opens on the Turbo, the faster valves supply more pressure to the back of the wastegate to keep it from blowing open when it normally would. I expect the DV is quieter because the extra boost is opening it faster and wider.. You are basically...

    S3 Turbo Kits? Apart from IHI - What is there?

    Glad to see others are being tempted - the conversion to a modern big turbo really makes sense in my opinion. Some comments having read the thread: Reliability - I have heard so many differrent stories about reliability, some have said that over 240BHP is pushing the AJL 1.8T, all I can go on...
