audi a6 2.7 t Bi-turbo ----- HELP!


Registered User
Hi all,

Can I have any ideas and opinions regarding a blown turbo in a A6 2.7 T?

I seem to get conflicting advice depending on who I ask.
If only one turbo has gone, do I need to replace the pair? I'm on a very tight budget.

I am told replacing the turbos is a engine out job? Is this the case and if so anybody got any idea / experience of the costs?

Lastly, any good places to source the Turbo or get it fitted?

Many thanks in advance for any ideas, Stuart

Engine out, yes.

A pair, I belive so if you only want to do the job once.

I would speak to MRC Tuning in Banbury.

These guys will be able to advise you, and quote on providing the turbos and fitting. They specialise in B5 S and RS4's and the 2.7 twin turbo in general, these are THE guys.

Since it is an engine out job, you should def replace the other turbo.

Forget the cost of the extra turbo, but imagine the cost of pulling the engine again??
