    I don't think there are many people that have done a manifold upgrade without a lot of other changes at the same time, so it's probably going to be hard to get an objective answer. I suspect a lot...

    My understanding is the interval might be related to the bearings. Those belts should not wear significantly faster than other cars, but the guide rollers are stupidly small. You could probably run...

    The car looks really nice, and it shows a very high level of care and maintenance, which is critical for these cars. I think you are going to dinged on the timing belt. I know it's still within the...

    If anyone wants a spare transmission to keep on the shelf, I've got a good one that I pulled at 82K for my manual swap. It was actually working fine, but I am a 3-hour drive from AMD, so if someone...

    Mine were done around 82K miles while the motor was out for the trans swap, and they looked almost exactly like yours. A bit of wear, but not bad.

    When I did it, I'm pretty sure I just used blue RTV. I don't remember exactly why I chose that sealant, it's possible it came with the Blauparts kit that I used. I guess I don't understand how the...

    There is an outfit in Germany called "KWE" that I believe still makes them. Not sure if there is a US retailer, but I'm sure someone would ship them over here. I don't know much about the quality,...

    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...

    That's some great info! I really want to try swapping the stock intake with something like the Apikol kit, back-to-back at the drag strip and see what happens in the real world. If anyone wants 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...

    Might be interested as well, is it a day trip, or do folks usually stay overnight?

    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.

    There are 10 of those, and you can see them here:...

    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...

    Regarding the SAI, nubcake can definitely code around it to make it pass the readiness test, even with all the hardware removed. We did that on my car. The visual test is the real problem. ...

    Yeah the old style has both inner and outer hex. @redwoodkiwi, it's possible that the inner hex is stripped out on yours.

    The new style is much longer and actually sticks out beyond the...

    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...

    Regarding the rear main, I left mine. It looked good and I was concerned that replacing it could just make things worse.

    I see you figured out the flex plate, good job!

    Regarding the exhaust manifold, you need to find a really thin-wall socket. I found a 1/4' drive, six point that worked. Once you get them out, I...

    One tip I would share is to take a lot of pictures while you are tearing things down. I took tons, and found them useful many times. Regarding the tensioner pads, I used the Blauparts kit and it...

    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...
