Introducing the JHMotorsports Timing Chain Rebuild Kit for your B6-B7 S4 4.2L V8

The local Audi service departments we talk to recommend performing this service when your vehicle reaches 100,000 miles, with that being said we've seen symptoms of various forms of timing chain failures much sooner than that. With that being said the chain system on these cars should technically last the 'lifetime" of the car but unfortunately for our customers the engineers who designed this setup were wrong and failures occur regularly much earlier than even 100k. We are just here to help with parts and information to help you make your own decision based on the actual facts of what happened with these cars in the real world. This is in addition to the calls we receive from our customers on a weekly basis regarding some form of timing chain issue with their car. We have regularly seen the famous chain knock on cold start with cars that are quite new. This has been accepted by most due to its normalcy. The big concern is when they knock on warm restarts and can slap and damage other components or collapse at high rpm. We have also seen complete failures of guides and or the mechanical cam adjuster as early as 50k to 80k. Guide failures can lead to more damage to other components. If you have one mechanical cam adjuster fail, it causes one half of the motor to miss fire and sometimes damages the very pricey electric cam adjuster actuator which is included in our FULL and FULL plus kit. With that being said if your car has made it to 100k with minor or no issues it isn't a bad idea to do the service regardless to prevent damage to other components or getting stranded by a car running on half the cylinders. We see and hear of VERY few that fail in the 110k plus range. That doesn't mean they don't last on some cars, we just get more calls and local work on cars under 100k.

We have put together 8 different levels of Timing Chain Rebuild Kits to fit your individual needs for your repair:

NOTE: There is a VIN split for one of the Cam Chain Tensioner Guides included in this kit. The split has to do with the design of one of the oil orifices on the back of the motor. Most 2004 B6-S4s and a small number of 2005 B6-S4s had an EARLY version of this part. You must check your VIN to be sure. Vehicles with VIN up to 4 200 000 will require an EARLY version of this Guide. Vehicles with VIN from 4 200 001 on will require the LATE version of this guide. B7-S4s all had the LATE version. Please confirm your VIN and select the version you need from the drop-down below.
