Re: A4 Brakes in Rain
Umm, you can't have vacuum assist in a turbo car. Think about that
one really hard. Turbocharged cars spend a fair amount of time with
a manifold pressure that is NOT a vacuum. You'd need some sort of
check valve system, and a very large reservoir, and if it runs out,
oh well, no brakes, eh?
Maybe your 2.8 a4 does, but I'll bet that the 1.8t certainly doesn't.
