    1996 Audi Coupe 2.6

    Not progress as such, but met up with a good friend of mine the other day and had a look round his MK3 Golf cabrio and took some pics of the two Germans from a similar era! I'm currently tackling the cambelt, water pump, thermostat, aux belt & tensioner and new header tank, but taking it's...

    1996 Audi Coupe 2.6

    The latest mod i've done is fitting this 360W lightbar. I've wired a relay in so that when the high beams come on, it operates the relay and the bar comes on. I commute around 13 miles to work and almost all of it is country lanes in pitch black too so will be a big help, plus i think it looks...

    1996 Audi Coupe 2.6

    On Friday i popped down to my local track as a friend had a day organised, called Curborough Sprint Course in Lichfield. It's been featured on a few of Car Throttle's Youtube video's if you're not familiar. Thought it would be rude to not take her for a few laps! Obviously no lap records...

    In theory, i'd say you can get better MPG in a car thats quite underpowered standard and have to work it hard to get the car moving. After a map, the extra torque would help the car move along and working the engine less, therefore getting better MPG. That's my theory anyway, but i can only...

    Audi cabriolet

    Hello! I'm also new to the forum & also own a 2.6 older audi! I can't help regarding your speedo problem but theres a facebook page " Audi Cab & Coupe Enthusiasts" or something similar, and i see posts about speedos and fuel gauges quite a lot so probably worth checking out!

    Hello! I'm also new to the forum, but looking to give my opinion on the remap question you had. Although my experience isn't a larger engine such as yours, mine was on a 1.6TDI VW i owned previously, and it went from 105bhp to 139bhp, dyno proven too, but the figures weren't the full story, it...
