Disadvantages of the Audi DNWA engine
- The main problem with such units is the owners’ unbridled desire for tuning.
- But when used in stock condition, this turbo engine has few problems.
- And an aluminum block with plasma spraying instead of sleeves does not cause any trouble.
- On specialized forums we were able to find only a few complaints about cracks in vacuum tubes.
