Definitely get the egr out for reasons earlier posted , dpf is a restriction and currently just a mot visual .
Near future dpf mot test legislation is the big ?
I have managed to look into the oil pump drive and it makes for depressing reading.
I believe my car details are BRD 2.0 tdi 170 hp A4 2008 S - line limited edition (not sure if B7 or B8) and currently on 115000 miles
What I would like to know is if balance shaft is chain driven or gear driven.
As this now seems to be a bigger issue I was totally not aware of and if it somehow explains why my lower gears don't engage when cold,
then I might need to deal with this first then remap after.
I also got a quote from Celtic Tuning which I have attached below. Advice if you can is all seems OK
The Audi A4 (B8) 2008-2014 takes the power from 170bhp up to 227bhp and the torque from 258lb/ft up to 311lb/ft. This stage of software is designed as a software upgrade only meaning it is all within safe tolerances of the engine and drivetrain and requires no hardware modifications. With our diesel upgrades you can expect to see upwards of 10% fuel saving dependent on driving style. For testimonials of our work please follow the link: View Testimonials
We provide all stages of tune from economy right through to full custom setup so if you have specific requirements please just ask. Regarding the economy map, we base this on low end torque and not peak values across the whole rev range. The idea around this is to enable you to get out of the lower gears quicker and to stay in the higher gears for longer. This software is designed for people who can�t get the economy gains with the fast road software installed due to their driving style. On many applications we also cater for larger turbos and injector upgrades, so if you are looking for ultimate performance then we have the knowledge and ability to do just that.
