      The problem is that Denso's listing is wrong. If you look in the Factory Service manual or the Ekta online parts catalog you will see that Audi list an NGK PFR6Q as the factory plug. The specs on the...

      Yes, #6 in breather diaphragm is PCV valve.

      Stroked or bored out? What is CR? IE: A 2.0 liter at 9.5 CR can take more cam than a 1.8 liter with 8.5 CR without becoming a soggy mess at low revs.

      Yes, the brake booster needs a check valve. Use the correct VW/Audi 1.8T Brake Booster check valve. It's different from a normally aspirated check valve.

      DV and FPR do not have check valves. Not...

      AEB also has a pretty simple Vacuum hose system. Uses 1 way check valves only. Edit: Parts #25, #26 and #27 are connections to Brake Booster. #26 is just a plastic coupling. May not be needed for...

      The AEB has a pretty simple PCV system and it's much more effective and reliable than later systems. Here's the PCV routing.

      I'd put an external oil cooler on that fairly soon. Oil temp is ramping up much too fast. I can run a 30 minute HPDE track session without the oil hitting more than 210 to 215 F on my AEB Audi A4...

      You'll get bored with it. It'll start every day, no more mysterious electrical problems that come and go, no more pressure testing for vacuum leaks every other month. How much fun is that? :P
