    Center bearing on the B5 is fine. A friend at a local audi shop kindly tossed it on his lift and said there's zero play and the center support bearing is fine. No rubber cracks and no movement oddly. The noise I'm hearing is my exhaust hitting 4 different things. It's warped

    I've used to have a gnarly clunk when decelerating in gear, from my chopped up Billy Boat 3" exhaust knocking on my trans housing. Super frustrating trying to figure out what it was without a lift.

    Looks great! Can't wash mine, the dirt is what holds it together. It would end up breaking something that cost $500 for a $5 car wash. Lol

    not always but it could also be your prv, high vacuum on a bad pcv system can pull a good amount of oil vapor into the engine. Worth checking before an engine pull.
    Never argue with an idiot, they'll bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    On the hunt for BW K04s. Would love a brand new set but $$$.

    The new SRM K24s are looking good at $1800 new.

    Still have to figure a few things out first before I pick a route. Either way the motor is coming out.

    How many miles did the f21s have on them?... just curious. Also they have a 2 year warranty so contact the previous owner you might still be within the warranty period.

    17,000 miles. Which is ridiculous because the PO ran them at wastegate pressure for 15,000. Only the last 1500 or 2,000 have they been at 21-23 peak. I'm going to put new CHRAs in them if I can get them, sell the F21s and then buy K24s or rebuilt BW K04s with all Bw parts. I may have sourced some BW K04s rebuilt for $1500 ish with all BW parts. Trying to decide if that's the best route, or new SRM K24s for $1800 ish I think.

    If I can't source replacement CHRAs from FT for the F21s easily, do any of you know where I can buy replacements (not through FT)

    My vote is the new ballbearing k24s. I have been super happy with my JB K24s. Rods would be a good idea if you want to take advantage of their full potential on E85. Pump gas you won't need rods.

    Yes actually I have a station with E85 that I've tested at 70-83% E a few miles from my house. I use it on my B8.5 K04 Allroad frequently!

    If you go BW k04 I have a ton of misc parts for them, washers, studs etc. I would be happy to send them your way.

    Also since the motor is coming out, here is basic disconnect guide:

    2x Heater core tubes
    3x Ground straps
    1x Power steering line
    4x O2 Sensor Plugs (And other plugs attached to fire wall)
    1x Driveshaft (Plus heat shield)
    2x Mid pipes (Leave O2 sensors in until engine is out)
    3x Screws for coolant tank
    2x lines for AC (Can leave compressor and condenser connected if you want)
    1x ECU Box (I like to remove the whole box, and leave it plugged in)
    1x Battery cable
    2x Axles
    2x Engine mounts
    2x Trans Mounts
    1x Slave cylinder
    1x Shifter linkage
    3x Fuel lines
    Some vacuum hoses

    I may have forgot some stuff, this assumes you are leaving the sub-frame in, taking the transmission out and have already removed the front core support fully.

    BW K04 is looking likely. If I went K24 I wouldnt want the journal bearing version... so i realized it would cost more like $2500 and not 1800

    How is the clutch, if you haven't already, now would be a great time to do it.

    Clutch actually feels ok. PO claims its an RS4 clutch... but I cant verify that and have no receipt. A beefier one is absolutely on the list. Just not sure what a cost effective choice would be, that can do the job.

    Well, for what its worth, I have a stage three Southbend, I also have the LWFW from them and I love it. Super nice part and great support. I have run their clutches on a few cars now, never had any problems at all. The engagement and feel is like stock but it holds a lot of power. Hope that helps.
