exhaust to chassis clearance (NA S3)


Recommended Posts

I have 6mm (1/4")  between the exhaust and the chassis rail, seems a little on the small size to me.  is the 6mm correct or is the left engine rubber on it's way out? 323333716_exhausttochassis.jpg.7b8fc7dccdd8d4735b2b83cf5721e353.jpg

I believe there is an amount of variability on exhaust fit as I know my turbo S3 was a bit of a pain to get clearance. Have a look and see if there is any witness marks of touching (polished area). If there is its too close. 6mm does not sound much but I don't really know how much an engine moves in service.
