Traffic?

Postby DSain on Aug Fri 11, 2017 8:23 pm

Just joined but dont see much traffic here, but wanted to say hi. Hoping the forum isn't dead.

I picked up an '08 A4 Quattro SLine in March. Then moved from the Bitterroot and looking for someone in Helena area that might be able to program a new dealer key. Don't feel like going to Bozo Audi just for that. Can't find any resources online that work on the Immo4. I appreciate any ideas.

Love the car. Very nice condition. 2.0T, 6 spd manual. Upgraded DV with GFB DV+. Changed timing belt, cam follower (old was worn through), oil filter housing gasket (was leaking profusely), fuel filter, clutch switch and thrust sensor. Need a socket to fit the oil filter housing so I can change the oil. More stuff from ECS...

After the cam follower replacement, the car drives so much better, but still doesn't feel right. No more fuel cut, but some mid RPM weak spots under WOT.

Next looking at VAG-COM and some new shoes. After, a Stage 1 tune. No 93 octane so anything more isn't going to help.

Peace,
D

Na, there's a lot more than 5 or 6 of us still lurking around ;-)

Somewhat surprised, with all the Audi's I see here, that there isnt much of an enthusiast community. But living vicariously through the internet, maybe there isnt much need for people actually interacting in meat space.

Car is acting like it did before cam follower replacement. Was good for a week. Will pull the HPFP to check it. Maybe cam lobe is damaged. Maybe HPFP needs to be replaced sooner than I thought.
