Re: gearbox

Well mine looks like it's just done the same as Trups and sheared the input shaft and mine has no unusual noises at all so, while I suppose it's possible it could be the shaft if its twisted before shearing, a whirring noise means something is still being turned within the GB and the input shaft alo...

Re: Does anyone know what this is for?

That pipe carries the gas/fumes/oil residue from the oil tank separator (removes bigger oil particles/residue) and feeds it into the PCV oil separator (removes small/fine oil particles). If you remove the pipe then you will have a fine oil/air mist sprayed around your engine bay which will be a cosm...

Yeah.........................about that :( https://i.imgur.com/YlJldiO.jpg Looks like I popped the gearbox input driveshaft as the drive from engine to gearbox is now physically disconnected even though both work fine separately (engine works fine, GB works fine without any noises etc, there's just ...

Re: gearbox

With everything working correctly but no drive the worst case is that the input shaft may have sheared. Trups had it on Classba's old car and the shaft shearing was silent so no idea it'd gone, it looked like a perfect slice through the shaft.

Re: IanH's C6 RS6 900+ spec

On the NC500 route at Applecross going clockwise to Ullapool at the moment, great weather, stunning views around every corner, god-awful roads and suicidal motorhome drivers - ah well, can't have everything!!!!!

Re: Air lift kit

I would take a guess in that, until fairly recently (say 2014 onwards), "air suspension" was the preserve of the "show car" or the luxo-barge and wasn't considered to be something sporty. However, for Audi with the C7 RS6 (air suspension) things are changing.

Re: Air lift kit

The only one I can think of on here was that one Custom Paint C6 with a Yellow interior that was for sale for a long time which had air suspension added, they ended up getting MRC to remove it in the end.

Re: IanH's C6 RS6 900+ spec

👍 Are you here long enough for Beaulieu on 21st buddy? Sadly not I'm afraid, I'm back to Saudi on the 17th. What size you after Ian? 275/35-R20 Y 120 XL in Michelin MPS4S - Lots of places say "yeap, in stock" but then Michelin can't supply them with any so I get refunded - now happened 4 times inc ...

Re: IanH's C6 RS6 900+ spec

Just a quick update while I'm back in the UK for a few weeks - I'm off to Scotland for a bit of NC500 action, I'm struggling to find MPS4S tyres as every website says "yes in stock" and then cancels/refunds 3 days later when they can't get any (problem at Michelin), my right rear brake heatshield de...

Re: Tyres

Having a hell of difficult time buying MPS4S tyres - had 4 companies cancel after taking my order because they just can't get stock - WTF is going on at Michelin???

Re: Tyres

Were the Goodyears rated XL as that usually means a thicker/stiffer side-wall?

Re: KWE inter-cooler silicone hoses

Got them on mine but with the KWE intercoolers as well so I'm not sure about OEM fitment issues, however from my experience so far they're much thicker/stiffer than OEM so they're better able to resist any boost drops that you *may/may-not* get from the OEM pipes expanding slightly under boost press...
