    Made my own scoop for the allroad for about $20. Comes much lower than the ECS scoop.

    I have an Integrated Engineering Intercooler and it fits.

    Taylor, I did a brief inspection and believe there are brackets holding the grill in place to the front end where youíd like to cut out/drill slots.
    It fits

    They install these two control valves and a hose to the existing fuel pump assembly if the fuel pump tests ok. If the pump is bad then they install the valves on the new fuel pump assembly.

    Vapor lock occurs when the liquid gas in the tank or fuel lines gets hot enough that it turns into vapor. It then gets sucked into the fuel system and prevents the fuel pump from pulling/pumping gas into the engine. Fuel pressure drops and the car dies. It was a pretty common problem back in the days before fuel injection and high pressure fuel pumps. Some say that modern fuel injected cars don't suffer from it, but that's not true. It's definitely way less common, but the fact that it happened and that there is a TSB out on it makes it clear that it is a problem. There's no mechanism that failed per se. The repair kit adds parts that aren't on the car. Two control valves and hose that I was told trap any vapors and prevent them from being put into the fuel lines.

    Honestly, I think if you always keep the tank fairly full when it is hot (over 100 degrees) it probably isn't going to happen. I'd been driving for about 3.5 hours in temps between 105-110, car was below a quarter tank, and crested a hill. I figure between the low fuel level, high temps, likely sloshing of what fuel i had in the tank, it allowed the system to suck in vapor rather than liquid.

    Hopefully it doesn't happen again. Or hopefully they do a recall so I can seek reimbursement on the cost of the repair. It's not an A4 specific problem, TSB applies to A4, A5, A6, A7, and Q5 and both the 2.0 and 3.0 engines
