Re: Did you heard of anyone who blow is 1.8T engine???(what exactly happened)?? (Digitalcandy)

I haven't herd of any from this forum but I have seen one... That was because of lack of maintenance to the engine. The oil was not changed enough and clogged the pluming in the engine and it seized. 40,000 miles on the engine... feel for that guy. I have herd of others with the same problem. One a4 was on ebay with engine that was siezed because of lack of maintenance. Don't miss them oil changes
From what i know it is very rear so don't get all worried about it.

yea he was racing a 12 sec civic with his 1.8t audi and he went from a 50 shot to 80 shot heated up the bottle and had lots of pressure but he also runs lots of boost well it wasent the engine but the driver wanted more that the car could give and boom he blew it I dont know if he beat the civic thown I hope he did.

Two here in H-town that I know of.
One a HS Kid got his car chipped and broke something that night doing burnouts forward and in reverse, yes it's true.
Another who installed a big turbo kit himself and left something inside a pipe. He blew the turbo taking out a valve and scarring the head and pistons badly. Very expensive.
