    Yeah, that range is not horrible, a bit out of spec, but for an older belt, probably not surprising. When I recently did mine, I religiously followed the instructions for setting the cam timing, and...

    Things are pretty quiet in Oregon, we have avoided the worst of it (so far). I'm working from home and avoiding going out as much as possible, but I took the RS6 out for a drive yesterday just to...

    My AMD Stage 3+ has an 8-puck ceramic disk, and it's always been grabby with shudder at launch. Over time, it has improved, but I'm at 7K+ miles, and it's still not anywhere near smooth. Hopefully...

    Based on the picture, it's missing the third port on the drivers side. The challenge with "RS6 Fitment", is apparently some of the early production cars didn't have the afterrun-pump routed back to...

    I was thinking of the flexplate-to-crank bolts, not torque converter-to-flexplate.

    I don't have the numbers for those, sorry. Might try ECS Tuning and see if they list it.

    Looks like all the typical trans-out work has already been done on that car. I'd just say that you should have a spare set of flexplate bolts on hand since they tend to be destroyed in the removal...

    The manifold socket is 12mm, and I'm not sure the brand. They are only marked 'Taiwan" and I'm sure it came form some cheap set I acquired over the years. I think being 1/4" drive and light duty is...

    I believe the majority of failures are from excessive pad wear, not the tensioners themselves. Personally, when I did the same "big" service, I just replaced the pads using the Blauparts service...
