    Okay quick Question ...

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    As most of you know I have a B8.5 that is eating oil at a horrific rate and I have chain stretch in the absurd at 7.25 degrees of adaption . I'm going to be rebuilding the engine so it should be a fun project . However I have been told on numerous occasions my engine should not have these issues as it had been fixed. so I got to thinking how do I know the engine has not been swapped at some point and I have a CAEB in it instead of my CAED . Would certainly explain a lot.

    So I looked at my engine serial number and it literally says CAE XXXXXXX on a white sticker with a build date of 18.11.13.

    So I would think November 18th 2103. This would make sense as my car was put into service December 31st 2013.
    So is there any other way to tell that is is a D over a B ?

    Thanks

    Thanks, but I'm not sure how that helps me identify which engine I have ..

    Is it spec'd at 211PS or 220ps? I say PS instead of hp because Audi Americas might call it a 211hp or 220hp engine, but it's actually PS not bhp. So they're really 208hp and 217hp. That's what diffs the B vs the D, the output level.

    You didn't read his post at all.

    OP, doesn't look like you have a swapped engine to me. I'd be interested to hear what you find out as you dig into it.

    I'm driving a 14 CAED as well and no problems on my end at the moment though I haven't checked the tensioner yet. As for the difference I've only glanced at my coworker's b8 engine bay once and from what I remember they look the same to me. I'll try checking mine out tomorrow and see what I can find.

    Look in the trunk near the spare tire. There is a large sticker with all build info. It wont help your question about a swap but may help somewhat.

    6 speed manual? Didn't the CAEB run into later model years in the 6 speeds?

    Sorry, the idea that someone took out a CAED to replace it with a CAEB was not an inquiry my mind was prepared for. And it wouldn't matter if someone had; they could easily move the ECU and timing chain cover (and white capped PCV if it was an old CAEB) over and you'd have nothing to identify the presence of the older block. Except for checking the engine serial number stamped on the block itself. Mine matches my timing cover sticker, CAE008054. But my timing cover sticker is so worn, the serial is the only part still legible. https://www.audizine.com/forum/showt...9-VIN-Location

    The build date of 11-18-13 is interesting. https://nemigaparts.com/cat_spares/e...q/736u/100100/ Seems to also match the date of a part number change for the base engine.

    Sorry, seems like you simply got lemonCAED.
