Timing belt gear upgrade mileage question

Postby 88a5tq » Sun Jun 11, 2017 7:11 pm

So for you guys running these 3b or AAN engines with upgraded, larger cam gears, are you reducing your service mileage for the timing belt. This is for those of you whole cheaped out and didn't buy a larger cf cover hah.

I've cut my stock belt cover off at the top as shown. Pretty common "adjustment" lol.

I was advised by a gentleman with the same open air tb scenario that it has made no difference for his belt life. This was on the classic Audi fb page FYI.
