Thanks everyone!

I added some extra stuff today (starter motors, brake pad stuff, cooling tanks, etc.)

I'll keep adding things as I find them in my research and I will also be making videos in
a how-to format for maintenance and performance modifications.

My oil and filter just got here and spark plugs are getting here tomorrow so those will be
the first two videos I do >: )

How about a basic one on jack points. Where to place the pads when putting on the lift, removing the shocks/springs, torque specs for the lug bolts etc. These are some things that are lead-ins to more complex DIY techniques.

This is a great thread and hoepfully gets a sticky very soon.. One question with the brake pad stuff, what about CCBs? I have an 07 with factory CCB and my understanding is its a bit of difference from years prior to 09 (LP) ? Maybe we have this information and can add it to the brake section.. But great start to this.. I just did an exhaust and rwd conversion on my car and having the diys makes all the difference...

Thanks

Hey man— That's actually a video I am about to make. It's super simple and
takes only an hour from start to scratch. Maybe a bit more if you really take
your time.

Great thought. I've added it to the "placeholder" area so now it will have its
own "post" in the thread for easy navigation.

That's one of the things I'm currently looking into. I know that the e-brake
pad is actually the same across all the years + brakes, including the Huracan.

Actually Audi/VW /BMW oil filters are made by hengst or Mann
I got this one for about $13 from ebay (price do change intermittently)

Audi S5 S6 S8 Q7 A6 A8 Quattro 4 2L V8 Oil Filter Kit Hengst Made in Austria | eBay
I was under the impression that the filter is actually a MAHLE filter: MAHLE OX 350/4D.

Makes sense because the VW/Audi filter, the MAHLE, and the HENGST are
made in Austria and use the same ink, color filter material, and the same
injection molded plastic. I would bet that you are correct and that all three
and in fact made in the exact same factory.

The reason I chose the VW filter over the MAHLE/HENGST is because I
thought that it wasn't a big difference in price (especially compared to getting
the filter direct from the Lambo dealer for ~$70!)... so, in the event that
anything happened, it would be safer to say "I am using a genuine VW filter,
just like you would use, and I am using LL03 oil, just like you would use.
Shut up and fix my engine" versus having to argue.

PHEW. I think I figured it out.

I think HENGST E813H is the UK equivalent of the MAHLE OX 350/4D and the
VW LP/Touareg filter. I have only been able to find it in the UK. That makes
sense.

Who knows. Maybe it's a distributorship/licensing/trademark situation.

It's just fun to decode the mystery and not pay lambo /AUDI TAX.

Well if something goes wrong you can actually keep a lambo filter at hand just pop it in before taking car to the dealer.:smiling_imp::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

My car is out of warranty so it does not matter.

Lucky bastard. :D

Personally I love that our filter is from a VW Touareg. Sort of humbles us with
our idea of how insanely high-tolerance and high-performance our engine is.
:evil:

And we use the same oil, even for "extreme" driving, that the run of the mill
200HP Audis use. :evil:

With all this Audi/VW talk do you guys think we can just go to a Audi/VW dealership or specialty shop and just get the oil service done there just tell them the Audi/VW filter part number and oil to get before the service appointment? If that makes sense.

I have a LOC5 exhaust that comes with ceramic coating. Is it still necessary to wrap with the heat shield tape????
DEI Reflect-A-Gold and DEI Titanium Titanium Exhaust Wrap are both
insulators.

However, the main purpose of the titanium wrap is to keep heat from
radiating OFF items (ie, exhaust systems) while the purpose of the reflect-a-
gold is to keep heat from radiating IN items (ie, intake systems).

Even if your exhaust is coated, there is still a lot of heat being generated in
the engine bay (including residual heat from your exhaust) and that is heat-
soaking the intake system and leading to increase air temps which means
you are getting timing pulled, less fuel per stroke, and clutch engagement
slowed down. The intake should be RAG "wrapped" and, frankly, even with
the ceramic coating, I would say there is no negative to also doing a wrap of
DEI Titanium on it, if you wish. It will stop even more heat from coming out.
