    It's the direct injection. Audi has been having issues for years with direct injection. So far the best system is Toyota in the frs that I have seen. It uses a fuel injector but it's placement cleans as it sprays. I believe that's how it works, but if I am wrong correct me. I do know for sure it's the best system out there.
    Kind of like the N54. Does the carbon build up on the intake valves too?

    If it's the 1.8T there are plenty of other precautionary maintenance you may want to do, depending on miles.
    It's got plenty of miles with a brand new turbo. What maintenance do you recommend? It does have a timing belt....

    It clogs the intake ports and valves. I know for sure depending on the circumstances, it requires a full rebuild/cleaning process that is not cheap.

    Sticky, I would copy and paste the info itself, but I'm in bed, on my phone, and lazy. But here's a great read on the carbon buildup issues.

    Being in bed and lazy is no excuse. I'm sitting here watching the NBA all star game while sipping whiskey. I'm still here.

    I recorded it. I don't really watch any sports live. I prefer everything on demand.

    That's a great read! Stupid power sapping carbon.

    I'll be hanging out at AudiBoost until you guys sober up a little.

    Waterpump with a metal impeller
    Timing belt (if this hasn't been replaced, i'd HIGHLY suggest replacing this if you're over 65k miles. preventative on this is key to not having a large maintenance bill)

    keeping a set of spare coilpacks on hand are a decent idea. VW coil packs have always been terrible. For the 1.8T a set of 4 will run anywhere from 100-200 depending your engine code. I would have at least 1 spare one though.


    also, be sure to check your oil consumption.

    Yes it does take a bit of oil. The 2.0T has forged pistons but the 1.8T does not (correct me if I'm wrong) so perhaps pistons + rings would need to be replaced? Are these motors hard on rings?

    I'm not too familiar with the 1.8T to be completely honest. But i know oil consumption can be an issue. Generally related to PVC or piston rings. I guess a leakdown test wouldn't hurt.

    I've got a little oil leak I need to fix then I'll be able to tell what is actually going on. I don't really care about anything except pistons and rings. If the PCV system is a problem I'll just remove it and run a catch can. I'd rather have to drain a can than burn oil fumes.

    Ok. I removed the factory PCV $#@! hoses and fittings and plumbed a couple garden hoses to an empty windshield washer bottle as a temporary catch can. Also, I am now drunk. Woohoo.
