    Not replacing other items related to the timing belt (rollers, tensioner and water pump) is a bad idea. You are in there already. Time is money. What I'm saying is, it would suck for you to replace the belt and have it fail a few thousand miles later because a roller or water pump seizes.

    The same goes with the seals contrary to what people say. You are in there. Replace them if you can.

    That is what I wasn't sure about. If the water pump fails, is it possible to seize? Or it just starts leaking? Haven't heard about anyone with seized water pump.

    I'd like to get a stage 2 tune. What's a test pipe? Is that a downpipe?. What's a cat delete downpipe? Ect.

    Most stage 2 OTS tunes require a test pipe or hfc. A test pipe or hfc takes the place of the catalytic converter. The down pipe on the B7 A4 connects to the test pipe or hfc(high flow catalytic converter). A cat delete down pipe on this platform is custom from a shop or vendor that is 1 piece that connects at the turbo and extends all the way to the mid pipe of your exhaust system

    Vce, I'm trying to locate this rear beam at the moment but can't see anything like that. Can you please point me to what to look at? Don't see anything enough stable which goes from one side to the other of the car.

    It would be where the both lower control arms are bolted to

    I see now and I understand what you mean. However the exhaust pipes are bent exactly under that beam and prevent direct access to it's mid point from underneath. Looks like that's not an option. But anyway I managed to lift the car on 4 stands by using a manual jack on each side on the rear and lifting in small increments.
