      when the new B8 generation came out a couple of years ago...things like that did not hurt the retinas (as much) but the sad reality is that now, everyone and their mother is putting it on their hondas and what not

      I don't like the LED's. Besides that, it looks good.

      Day 1: extensive removal



      Started to disconnect the battery, then the headlights and bumper comes off via torx screws ( 3 on each headlight, 2 triple square long bolts for the bumper. HID are also removed


      Then took off the intercooler, pipes, couplers, boost MAP sensor, all the associated connectors and screws that hold the whole front black mount. Also had to break the zippies, clamps for the water system, etc




      Took off my special SAI pump relocation Mod, belts, other hoses, fan blade, alot of connectors and label them, removed A/c and P/S pumps, keeping them connected to eliminate futher cost


      Removed the screws holding the four mounts since I am taking the whole engine/transmission combo to thorughly clean everything, removed the turbo-to-cat nuts, more connetors and vacuum lines, shifter and other associated bolts

      Got the engine hoist and after 30 minutes of rocking and turning, finally got the engine/tranny out
      Place it in the van and off it goes. Now waiting till tuesday for the new engine to be finished
      The water pump was SHOT but didnt caused the ticking ( i tried lol)

      Now I have some serious cleaning to do



      Stay tuned since it will be cleaned, degreased, painted, etc etc

      Now to answer the question,
      Well my car had this horrible ticking sound, actually more of a clank since it amplified. I replaced the oil pump, lifters, VVT tensioner and chain, desluge engine, always use 5w-40 full synthetic ever since I bought it, still the same damn ticking lol. I will find out exactly since the engine will be torn down for futher analysis

      Looks like you got quite a bit to do. Depending on emissions in your area, I would look into removing the SAI, Vacuum line/check valve delete, and possibly getting rid of the pcv setup and running a catch can. Doing all of that would clean the bay up pretty good, and cut down on areas of boost/vacuum leaks.

      I would LOVE to do that but I have strict emissions here
      Plus then I am going to have to buy the chip for it which I dont have the funds yet, but that is most definitely next on my list

      PLease post what the ticking is because im very eager, my car ticks as well, and ive done the CCT, Lifters, checked for a blown headgasket, ect ect ect. So im in the stages for ordering a new oil pump. My cars tick sounded like playing cards in a bicycle tire, almost exactly.
      I got 99 problems, and my b5 be all of em.

      I found the problem. It was the bearing cap on no. 1 cylinder and the intermediate shaft that runs the oil pump

      Old engine out (ATW)


      New engine ( AEB )


      Prepping it up for installation


      Install all new bolts and nuts, aligning the transmission and engine to the frame is a huge pain in the asset lol

      wire covered


      New belts and such








      Start it without pump and spark plugs off, build oil pressure. builds up 12 psi, good.
      Install plugs and pump relay, crank it up, run for 10 seconds, shut it off. Ran like Sh**
      Second start, run for 20 seconds, shut off, still bad, but oil pressure build up to 80 psi on idle.
      Third start, let run for 5 minutes, engine quiets down alot, misfire like hell, leaks coolant, shut off
      Repair leaks and found out two coils were bad, went to the store and got two new ones, they are the new style coil overs, bought clamps and install.
      Crank it up again and let it sit on idle until operating temp, runs beautifully. Rev it up to 2000 rpm for 5 minutes, runs smooth. shut it off, check leaks. Cool it down some, install bumper, lights etc.

      Ran it very lightly for first 3 days, no shifts after 2500 rpm, check oil and fluids religiously, noticed my a/c idler pulley is making a grind noise.... took it off, wait 5 days for new part to come in XD. installed it after it came, now she sounds like a cadillac on idle OMG

      I run it so far for a week, the engine runs soooo perfect (knock on wood) I couldn't believe it. I also notice.... I havent installed my emission system back on due to AEB SAI delete head...and the check engine light never came on..... Great

      I am very very happy with it

      Only things missing:
      Oil change
      AEB intake manifold ( will be polished/painted)
      Grills, trimmed and place back on for stock look

      Lol thanks, and yeah I noticed alot of people have pixel-murdered MFAs, scares me.....

      Hahahaha I received two cars from my father, in turn I repair both myself with money I made from airplane business.

      Updates:
      New intake manifold, port matched with my bigger AEB head, painted, polished ( seriously saw difference of power from my old small port ATW mani XD seriously pulls up to 5k EASY and wants to go even more but backed off since im breaking it in some more)

      New chipped ECU by GIAC, set up for KO4 plus FMIC and injectors ( unfortunately, the ECU is designed for the AEB electrical system and I have the later ATW electrical system) bummer

      Forge motorsport DV ( installing it tommorow )

      K/N drop in fatory style filter ( removed my old cone filter, put stock box in with new k/n drop in) got some gain out of it since it isn't heat lagging anymore.

      green top injectors ( used with ECU but again, cannot use


      If anyone would like a nice chipped ECU for AEB quattros by GIAC, tuned for ko4 with FMIC and larger injectors plus green top injectors, I would let go for 450 shipped or any trades that will interest my audi and myself lol lemme know
