BBK engine rebuild


Does anyone know where I can get hold of torque settings / timing pins / set up diagrams for the Audi BBK V8 engine?

Just about to start my bottom up re-build



Hi John

I can lend you timing set up equipment.

Regards Jim Green

Is this a timing chain thing?

Sorry to thread hijack, but I'm considering trying to find a BBK V8 engine for a project, and was wondering how much I need to worry about the timing chain - and maybe how much do all the parts tot up to now for DIYing a rebuild?

(am reading and now...)

It seems the answer is 'a lot'!

Nearly $4k for the 'bulletproof' rebuild kit.  Ouch.

I gather from 'the internet' that the BBK engine is more-or-less a time-bomb, waiting for the timing chain tensioners to break up.

Is this true?

Wouldn't say a time bomb just they should be replaced at x amount of miles or years. Forum Index -> Audi S4 & RS 4 (B6 & B7) quattro
