Disadvantages of the Audi DNWA engine

  • Most of the problems with this engine are due to the owner’s desire for tuning.
  • However, without a radical increase in power, the unit does not cause much trouble.
  • Even an aluminum block with plasma spraying instead of sleeves runs without problems.
  • On specialized forums we were able to find complaints only about cracks in vacuum tubes.
