Would like to ask if there is a book out there to purchase that would explain the mechanicals of these cars in a very simplistic form? Remember, Turtle had to explain to me what my wastegate pipe was. There may be no hope for me, if not, I can help support our local mechanics. Quattro, speaking of a fuel meter, foreign to me. WUR, warm up regulator? What does it do? Not looking for answers to those specific questions, but if there is a resource for someone like me? Sorry for the hijack. Anyone in the Tulsa area? I grill a killer ribeye, ribs are not bad either.
Just throwing out some thoughts....

Just google turbocharger systems and there's a plethora of websites explaining. Our systems works like the majority of systems out there that you'll read about.

Other part is CIS. There's tons of info right here.

Lastly, buy Wayne's engine overhaul book (own) and Zimmerman's 101 projects (don't own but it's helped many here) and that should cover just about everything.
