    '97-8 1.8T Sport. Save or scrap? *purchased pics added*

    i just picked up my catb for £337, as i needed engine and turbo to replace my modded one, damage isn't that bad and gives you some spares to sell on. thing i liked is i could see the engine running before i bought it, as i have bought a duff engine 2nd hand before.

    Why did audi make it expensive to get decent power?

    well i rebuilt my 1.8T engine and got ready to slap a big turbo on, that cost me £5k without engine management/mapping and clutch/flywheel. that would have been good for about 400-450bhp. engine is for sale for £1500 at the moment without turbo (that got stolen before i fitted!), with 8,000...

    Why did audi make it expensive to get decent power?

    my R32 isn't cheap either, i start off with 240bhp, usual exhaust and high flow cats cost about £900, plus £400 for remap, that gets you about 260bhp. then it's induction filter kit, another £200 cams about £1200 - £1500. at that point you're at about 270 to 280bhp, 290bhp is you're lucky. next...

    Why did audi make it expensive to get decent power?

    agree with JCB, the engines are virtually bullet proof, the rods being the main restriction, 300bhp on std internals is double the power they were designed for, a few upgrades and you can get 400 upwards, these engines have produced 700+bhp. 150 to 200bhp with a chip ain't bad, these aren't...

    1.8t fuel consumption.

    i used to get 25 to 28 out of mine, same when my sister had the car and it was std. it is one thing that put me off the audi a bit, as i expected a bit better. still my r32 does 20 to 23, so could be worst.

    Forge or bosch?

    forge ones don't split and fall apart like the platic bosch ones, if chipped i would use forge, you can adjust spring pressures as well then.

    VAGcom cable question

    mostly likely problem is 64 bit windows as drivers are different and not compatable, best get yourself onto a 32bit windows, you could do that by dual booting your laptop/pc.

    B5 race or rally cars???

    not quite the same but backdraft motorsport either raced or sponsored an a4 turbo in recent years, as i think it was for sale about a year ago, not sure what series it was in.

    Replacing and re-coding dash clocks in S4?

    i think you are right, canbus i think communicates between interfaces/ecu's etc so you would loose functionality. guess have to look at what canbus is exactly used for on these.
