I don't have any experience with an S4, but I can help with the basics of the software.

Oh really, I might have to swing down your street and see if I can find your house then.

Joe is my new hero. I borrowed his vagcom cable last night, what a cool toy. I think me and my car had a break through, it's like we're communicating so much better now. I really think this is a new beginning in our relationship.

Anyway, signs point to a bad drivers side EGT sensor. I'm waiting to see what the guys on AudiWorld thing of the results.

You want to hug it out?

As a side note, part has been ordered. Should be in next week, only $209 (ouch). Surprisingly the dealership was much cheaper than anywhere else.

Picked up a new driver's side EGT today from the dealership. Will put it in as soon as I remedy my flooded bathroom situation (what a pain).

P.S. Aeron, can I stop sleeping on the couch, or are you still mad at me? :tear:

Replace my Bank 2 EGT last night. Made a HUGE difference. I got a ton of horses back, she's never been faster. I had forgotten how fast stock even is when it's running right, chipped just makes you laugh like Dr. Evil. I made it to 120 on the on ramp (that's in kph of course, it would be speeding otherwise :unibrow: ) The bad news is it appears that the Bank 1 sensor might be going as well. There's been no symptoms of power loss or bad gas mileage yet, but I'm getting a fault code. I'm going to drive it for a bit and see how it goes. Considering the sensors are $209 ea. I don't think I'm going to run out buy another just in case.

Finally, I don't have to be embarrassed by an unhealthy car when I give rides. :mrgreen:
