    Reduced oil pressure warning only when engine hot??

    So I've recently been getting reduced oil pressure warning (brown plug near oil filter) on my newly-ish built 83mm piston engine with roughly 7k miles. Really started happening after I changed from 0w40 to now 10w40. This ideally should not make a difference. Also happens when the car is at...

    Aftermarket seats and dealing with airbags...

    Anyone done seat swaps? How did you work out the airbag light? I believe it's a 2.3ohm resistor, but also seen I could disable via obd11/vcd. Lastly I'm trying to figure out how to port over the occupancy sensor or seat warmers, if anyone has any tips, greatly appreciated. Sent from my Pixel 2...

    JB4 used as a USB OBD device?

    Hello All! I've been trying to figure out a way to get two devices to talk to the OBD port, which is technically impossible the way it works.

    Anyone with the CTS Turbo Inlet pipe have any WHP gains to share?

    Was thinking about getting this instead of a full intake. Not really convinced a $500 intake, that nets about 10hp is worth the time/energy/justification. I've read someone where there was a 6-7whp gain... which is more in line of bang for the buck for me. Many have also stated that they felt...

    So just add the IS38 and call it a day?

    So I keep looking at upgrading the turbo - because I can't stop messing/upgrading the car. Currently have the US Spec A3 2.0T Quattro IS20, but keep eyeing the IS38, but I can't really find much information confirming. Every place that sells it says its just a full bolt-on upgrade. However then...

    Heading to the track on Friday (Laguna Seca) and have AWE touring exhaust along with downpipe, but do you think its over 90db?

    What other OEM Audi seats fit our 8V?

    So I have the slippery leather standard seats. I'm fairly tall 6'2 and thought the car I bought had the sport seats... long story short, it had nothing - live and learn.
