It's all about the V8.
Wow! I don't think Audi could have made this anymore complicated if they had tried. I wonder what the reason is for putting the timing chains on the back of the engine?
That engine has an impressive amount of chain keeping it all together!
Lucky one on the chain guide issue too!
Love the B6 S4 and the BBS wheels look fantastic. Looks like you're getting stuck in with work on it too
I guess the main reason would be the extra space in the engine bay.
Well done mate , lots of work gone into it...........you changing that belt above the snub mount (last pic) for good measure as it looks tired
What is the "Full plus kit"?
Woof! It's good to see one of our engines getting the 'gold standard care package'. I know it's expensive but I've lost more than the cost of a timing system refresh in depreciation when selling cars in the past so it's worth it when the plan is to keep the car for the long-term. It'll also add value when you do sell it.
If you haven't already bought the JHM tune cable, there's someone on Audizine who will lend it to you for free. PM for details.
Fantastic! Respect!! But, at 9 years old and only 90k miles that's a frightening amount of engine work to keep her running as she should. I realise it's a performance car, but even so.
