    A5 3.0 DPF delete

    Mines a 57 plate and it's the ******* version, I mean long version haha. Must say mind on the subject of our cheese eating surrender Monkeys, In the past I've had 2 saxos, one being a track car, and 2 phase 1 Clio sports and never gave me any trouble and easy enough to work on. This A5 I have on...

    Is yours the long or short version m8?

    DPF NIGHTMARES!

    Sounds like your dpf is blocked to the point where a re gen no longer works. The pressure sensor sounds like its doing its job and reporting this.

    Finally got it

    Looks really good m8, I like the black skirts, goes well with car colour and wheels

    Kept bringing up the p2020 code with my foxwell Nt500. The pic is bank 2 inlet, loads of play on the flaps as well. Sorted it with a new kit off eBay, all cleaned out and cleared the code. What a f@#k on removing the manifolds tho!!

    A5 recommended brake pads?

    Fair enough m8. I think u can't really do bad with redstuff, that was nearly my choice. I can highly recommend the Ds2500 pads but they ain't cheap, if you want stopping power tho they were amazing on my previous cars.

    A5 recommended brake pads?

    I take it you are gunna be taking the car on track m8? It's just I've recently put the o e TRW pads in mine, all be it with the 345mm s5 discs, but still I've haven't had an issue with any fade on the road, and my car is not standard. I paid £55 for the pads from gsf car parts with the 35%...

    I got bored so made a new induction setup. I know the standard air box is decent but I wanted a bigger filter with larger intake pipe work. I had a very similar setup on my focus st turbo and it worked very well.

    S5 caliper brackets fitted with the new 345mm discs. New TRW pads (Audi) fitted, what a massive difference compared to the cheap pads that were on.

    Fancied a change from the silver so decided on Honda urban titanium. Looks a bit dull in the photos but it does shine nicely when the sun is out.

    New car help needed!

    What intercooler are you going for m8? I highly recommend the mishimoto J line, me and Karl (desert storm) have one fitted and it fits nicely not obstructing the radiator or crash bar. You handy with the spanners? Cos fitting the turbo and cooler is a piece of **** m8

    New car help needed!

    I think the multitronic is 500Nm but I may be wrong. If this is true it won't handle the GTB2260VK turbo as I'm kicking out over 700Nm. I think you have 2 smaller intercoolers, one at either side, instead of one lower front mount like the 3ltr has, this could be more of a pain to sort the pipe...

    exhaust options for 2008 Audi A5 3.0tdi

    My video is with a gutted dpf and straight through back boxes, so it will sound like that m8. On the move it's nice subtle v6 noise. The A5 has decent soundproofing inside, it's much louder if you hear it on full beans from the outside

    New water pump, belt and tensioner fitted, finally! My cannabis smell has disappeared as well, so it must have been the old belt! Haha

    Drive V belt looking sorry for its self. So decided to change it along with the water pump and tensioner. What a carry on!

    Drive belt problem

    It does happen m8, there is no service schedule for replacement but they are checked on service and changed if required. Mine has done 76k and the previous owners have both had belts on and I'm in the process of changing it again as its in poor condition.

    V belt

    There's no specified change interval on the 3.0 tdi, but it is part of the check on a service, so I would guess if it looks in poor condition it would be changed. I'm changing mine because it looks poor, it's started cracking, probably do the water pump whilst it's off

    V belt

    Cheers m8. I was hoping this wasn't the case but if I have to then so be it ;)
