    ok, I think I set a new record for

    Turbo failure
    I had mine replaced under emissions warranty back in October and then again the first week of June. Since the June replacement I have 2 partial track days (meaning DubWars where I didn't have the car out on the track as much as I would on a regular track day)and today I went to Streets of Willow did a slow warm up lap and then put 2 laps down and the goes that noise again followed by the white smoke
    So basically less than 2k miles and not even 2 months and they are gone again! DoI win a prize or anything? heh.

    btw, anyone have a smokin' deal on some k04's? The hubby is really bent and told me today "well, park that damn blue car and start drivin' one of your other Audis", but I can't just let her sit!

    ok, sorry just had to vent ............ bad day

    They didnt sound bad.... Hmm.

    Sory to hear it, sucks to have problems at the track! (I Awaits pics of my 3 wheel incident to posted all over Vortex.... )

    arent these still under warranty? Somebody needs to take a good look at your setup. Sumthin aint right to be going thru turbos like they're candles.

    Was that you that lost that wheel? I was just glad to get thru the day with just the issues I had with my car. Now to just get it ready for thursday.


    Julie I hope you get things fixed soon. I wish it was just the bpv that blew instead of the turbo failing again.
    It had some power, but has MORE now.......

    Another set of turbos? Hmm, I'm thinking you're have some oil issues, you really shouldn't be going through them that quickly.

    Julie, I think you are offically the queen of turbo failure. That sucks about the k03's but at least you get to upgrade to k04's. Who are you going to have do the turbo swap? Also just a suggestion but you should call Indultion Motorsports and see if you can get those upgraded turbo oil lines the are making, they had a cheaper introductory price that I think ends at the end of the month, might be worth the call. Anyways best of luck and hopefully the car is up and running soon.

    Sorry to here Julie.
    maybe U were meant to have KO4s

    Julie, I cant find you cheap K04's but I can find you a cheap install on those turbos if you need to. Search on AW for "simpply" his name is mike. Lots of S4 guys go to him to do Stage 3 installs.
