CUTTING The ECUs Out Of My Twin Turbo Audi R8

19 ditë më parë

After getting my 2008 Audi R8 home it still had a major problem, the ECUs are on stock files with way too much timing in them for the twin turbo setup. I started working with Boosted Euro on tuning it, he found that they had previously been written too and flashing them might brick the ECUs. Of course that's exactly what happened, so now I have to get them out of the car and ship them to him to flash them on the bench. Today we're literally going to cut them out of the car, let's gooooo!!!

Next time, try clamping a pair of vice grips to the screwdriver shaft to give you a better grip, and added leverage to turn it.

None of these modern European sports cars will ever be reliable. And a lot of that fault rests on the EPA, and the European automakers trying to comply with their endless rules. They usually do it with over-engineered, overly complicated systems which are unreliable. EPA rules have totally ruined these cars and some Japanese cars as well. Take the RX8 for example. What came out that complied with EPA rules ended up being junk.

You should've never reinstalled that POS turbo kit. Just put the new motor back in NA, kept it factory. Sold the kit separately and then decided if you wanted to keep or sell the car

Hate to be the bearer of bad news. Hopefully it did not happen here. Letting grinder sparks hit a glass pane can cause them to embed in the glass and look like little pepper flakes that a razor cannot remove. Hope that is not the case with the rear glass on the deck lid. Love seeing content on that Audi. Such a work of art, with permabolts!! XD XD

Future tip, that yellow common screwdriver has a place on it on the metal part to use a wrench for way more torque. I use mine all the time for rusted air filter box screws and other "fun" non-hex headed screws.

Pretty stupid how some manufacturers go through this tamper resistant BS to keep people from just working on their cars. I do remote starters and Nissan started doing this to us with the BCM's behind the cluster. I even see Kia's with tamper resistant stuff on their BCM's as well. They never stopped me though and they never went back in either. Regular screws and done with it. Just put in some metric allen head or phillps and it will be perfect! Hopefully you get your problem solved with this car soon. -Jon

When I have done other cars I managed to get the screws out by just using a socket. Find one that almost fits and give it a couple of light taps with a hammer and they all came out easy with the socket wrench. I have a good selection of sockets both metric /imperial , 6 point/12 point so just went through them to find one with the best fit.

My understanding is that the R8 and Gallardo are nightmares to work on. For example, if you need to change the AC compressor, the engine has to come out of the car...

Wondering if an impact driver, or a wrench on that bolster on the snap on screwdriver and Palm Force would have worked easier ? Any other fastener I would have used an air chisel on the edge of the fastener to get it to move. But ecu's aren't cheap, and I'm not sure how they would have responded to the vibration. I would have drilled them last if nothing else worked.
