    is it normal for an a3 to sound like a scooby?

    Simply, yes. Its normal. If you mean especially at full throttle at low RPM then it does sound like a scooby a bit. As long as the power is smooth, then its fine.

    Fitted my CR K04 Hybrid today

    my old Jabba manifold required me to take the head off to get the manifold off. There was no way to get it off after 6 years of heat cycles with the head on the car. Even then i had to chissel the bolts off. new JBS manifold is much more roomy due to it being welded and not cast.

    Porsche Cup tyre sizing on a Quattro, HELP

    Problem is with such a stretch, the tyres will be different circumference regardless as stretching pulls down the contact area towards the rim. You'd have to do some real good calculations. What size are the rears? 9.5"?

    Can an S3 engine cover Fit an A3 1.8T?

    HELP ! Fuel injector seats

    They should be fairly tight, and there should be some form of PTFE/sealent or something that seals them up. Cylinder 3 tends to be the one to leak.
