Re:Turkey sound - update?

Another data point: My (old) water pump did the same thing. About two
months ago, before my long trip, before my short crash, I changed the
timing belt/WP on the 5KCSTQ. It had been done once before, and a
non-Audi part (forget to get the manufacturer) had been installed. Timing
cover had a nice machined spot in it as well, with the same turkey sound.
Replacing the pump with one from Carlsen solved the problem. It doesn't
look like much of a difference, probably too small to notice unless you put
them side by side and measure.
