I received this car as a gift but know nothing about it, what pictures should I take for you guys to try and help me figure out what's under the hood, have receipts over 40k in work, far as I know there is an inner cooler, turbo aftermarket I think, bov, cool air, fmic coil overs, stop tech front brake kit, 15psi boost I think. Will upload pictures after some replies. Thanks in advance. Audi rookie.

The receipts should give some info regarding the type of turbo and other parts. And some pics of the engine bay.

You need to get the info off the name plate stamped on the CHRA of the turbo to know exactly what it is. Looks like the PO cut on one of the intake manifold lines for a boost gauge reference. You have a boost gauge in your car?

Yes I do, seems to be operating properly

Good. As long as you have no CEL and things seem to be operating properly, I would run it just like that and learn about your car along the way. If it is set at 15psi, I am going to assume the PO was trying to preserve the engine and you have stock internals. Could be other reasons, but that is what I am assuming as of the moment. If you want to know what turbo exactly, you need the info off the metal plate on the CHRA. Garrett turbo?

Ok, also in the 3rd picture, beside my carbon cover there are 4 bolts, lookin a little rusty, for some reason the top 2 are broken and just rattle there, the bottom two are tight, it's broken off inside, how do I fix this and will it cause any major issues ?

Are you referring to your turbo to turbo manifold bolts? If any are broken, you need to correct that. Also don't mind that o2 sensor that is like zip tied to the side. I can tell by the pic that sensor is written out of your ECU, but the ECU still needs to see a signal for it so you don't get a CEL.

The t25 flange on your turbocharger's turbine housing should have holes that go right through. He should be using the bolt/nut method to keep that flange tight. Put your hand on the other side and see if you can feel the other side of the bolt. If so, just place a nut on there with some of this stuff. Have not tried this tactic myself, but others have suggested it.

Hmm ok thank you, any possible way of seeing what type of hp it's got without a dyno? I hear I have racing injectors ?

I would not say "race" injectors, but you def have more flowing injectors than stock. Your fuel injectors are under the engine cover, at the end of the intake manifold runners. There are apps that can give you an estimate of your hp if you don't want to dyno.
