Who did the PPI? Hopefully not the dealer, they don't really know the cars, even thought it says Porsche on their signage. Really. Not kidding.

Do a Pizza party to get free timing belt labor. Lasagna is better. Not the frozen type.

When you do the timing belt..make sure you get one of those new fangled tensioners... There's a guy on here who makes them in the basement of his laboratory... I hear he can work magic with the older cars too....so maybe his skills can translate to the much more superior S4 platform

Find somebody local on Rennlist and do a Pizza party to get free timing belt labor.

I served Grotons fish at my last TB party. No one showed up. Go figure.


Congrats Ken!

That's right, I need a PKlutch!

Likely that the high speed fan isn't actually kicking on. Instead it's only getting low speed.
Low fan fuse was blown.

Fans aren't coming on because the radiator/lower rad hose is cold.

Fans come on strongly when rad sensor plug is pulled (or A/C turned on).

Will check t-stat, then water pump, tomorrow.

If you don't have any around, PM me your address, I'll donate one (back) to you .

It's a couple of years old and been sitting on the bench for that time as it durn't fit RHD (only the second thing I've bought in 5 years that I forgot would be different LHD/RHD ). I've got to go to the post office to ship some stuff to Roger anyway - so posting it to a good home makes sense.

Noob observation - S4s don't have rear wheel spacers?

Don't need them. The *** on an S4 is only surpassed by the GTS, and that bitch is fat.

I am good. Ask and ye shall receive!
Very cool. You know the normal stuff to check. Get it breathing better, x pipe lose the cats if you can. Supercharger.......reprogram chip. Go for it. Slightly different animal this. Not easy, but what is.

Ken before checking thermostat pull off the front cover and inspect the coupler on Ed's guardian pump.
