Hi Brabbs,

According to the service notes for the S4 & S4s,

Big end bearings, 104 - 107 nm

Inlet valve clearance 0.13mm to 0.18mm

Exhaust valve clearance 0.25mm to 0.31mm

hope this helps.

cheers

Dave

According the the workshop manual for turbo and SE, torque for the head bolts is as follows:

Each end pair: 95 Nm

3 middle pairs 100 Nm

Tightening sequence is clockwise working from the center pair towards the outside.

8---6--1--3--9

10--4--2--5--7

Hi again,

forgot about the head bolts,

again from the service notes of the S4, S4s and sport 300,

Tighten nuts progressively in a diagonal sequence working outwards from the centre, in five stages.

i) 20Nm,

ii) + 75 angular degrees,

ii) + 40 angular degrees,

iv) wait 5 minutes,

v) + 20 angular degrees

Tightening sequence

8 6 1 3 9

x x x x x

Front-->

x x x x x

10 4 2 5 7

x's represent the head nuts.

cheers

Dave
