    Tossing up between this and the Zinram exhaust as they're about the same price, just question how good those electronic valves are and how long they'd survive... Would prefer a vacuum actuated valve. Didn't realise Zinram were so hit or miss with the customer service side of things!

    Rk o e does look well made, the Zinram valved exhaust is twice the price and the valve is after the back box I thought the point was to by pass the box? like you say vacuum would be best instead of having to use the remote

    On a turbo car it would be a boost activated valve typically...

    refitted the timing belt [ retarded timing, 1 tooth off] water pump, tentioner [ what a little git to recompress with no vice!!] all dust covers, engine mounts, wheel liner and other plastic bits underneath, crank pulley, aux belt and tentioner, evap-charcoal canister, rad header tank, power steering fluid res, charge pipe, brake booster hose and most the little bits that need doing.
    just got a coolant flange on order, a set of plugs to grab, oil and a filter and antifreeze and i *hope* to be running for next weekend.

    Fitted a new MAF and also going back and forth with my 2 n75s. With one, the car pulls good low end and the turbo kicks in smoothly with the other the car feel less powerful low end but the turbo kicks in more aggressively. How should it be the second one is the ''new'' C version.

    wont lie, im sh1tting it for the startup, i asked a mate who's well off to do it so if it goes tits up, its his fault and can pay LOL.

    naw, but honestly, i'm certain i hit all the right torque specs, and off all the countless pages of advice here i think its gonna be a runner.

    if not, then the spare block/top will get the works done to em and i will be taking the front off the car to get the engine out; dont wanna have to do that **** in a tight space again, i have literally no skin left on my fingertips ha! the joys of being a bigger framed chap eh!

    So today i decided to give some attention to my recently acquired Agu

    That is the air filter or should i say air filters that came out of the airbox, these things are so cheap yet the previous owner decided to glue 2 totally different air filters together, I mean WTF

    WTF.jpg

    and the cabin filter has also never been replaced, thats the original 20 year old audi filter that was in there.

    cabin filter.jpg


    i must still do the mechanical stuff like the spark plugs, oil change, oil and fuel filter but im already afraid of what im going to find. i have a sneaky suspicion that the cambelt is probably also the original audi part on there from the year 2000

    That is completely crazy glued filters together cabin filter does look original though best get that cambelt done ASAP. The air filter will not be working correctly as it's not sealed at the edges so possibly more cleaning to do in the intake manifold area

    I think you’ve won car with most neglect of the year mate. Truly shocking, can’t say I’ve ever seen that before. Makes you wonder what other gremlins you’ll end up finding! The car can only get better with your ownership that’s for sure

    Hubs, bearings, pads, discs, ball joints and new abs sensors all fitted and done car drives amazing for the 2 mile test run afterwards. Just need to get tracking done all round now and I'll be happy. With regards to abs sensors in my thread the one that broke was from gsf and was really hard to try and put in. Ended up getting an eicher one from euros and it fit in straight away no fading about. Just incase anyone needs to change abs sensors

    Would be pointless me changing the rocker cover over if I was to just cover it all I’m gonna still out the coil pack holes a little this weekend and get it sent off to be powder coated on Monday. Fit it next weekend.

    I’ll be posting it all up on my build thread for sure. Going to get it sprayed to match the other parts in silver. Nice clean look. Was going to be changing everything to a bronze finish but still can’t decide on a colour code yet.

    Yeah but does that bolt to our heads? I’ve looked into this rocker cover before and I can’t see how it would with work with VVT. Or the depth to cover the cams, this is for a 2.0 na engine.

    they vvt would be an issue but on APY engines it shouldnt be an ISSUE, afaik the ALT is just a stroked 1.8 like an ADR in the A4's, it's still a 4 cylinder 5 valve engine, and i doubt audi would have gone and specially created that just for the b6 A4's.

    From what I’ve seen side to side the ALT head cams sit flush to the top, so the ALT rocker cover sits flat. Our 1.8 heads are different in that respect, our cams are pronounced so the ALT cover wouldn’t fit.

    You could swap the heads entirely.... I guess. That said If that was something that could easily be done then everyone would be doing it or using the 2.0 block if they were interchangeable.

    The ALT's have fsi so maybe thats why the cams are different, but the blocks are more or less the same bar a few minor changes

    i found this online

    where he says our cars he means the B6's
