Thanks for the help, gentlemen.
Here's my list:
I'll be careful when re-oiling.
Related: Should I pull the MAF and clean it? (Where is the MAF?)
Exhaust - will look into this. Locally, they're about $1000. That
seems a bit steep, but I'm sure I can find something a bit more
reasonable with a little searching.
Hoses - I'll replace the remaining braided hoses (new Audi braided
hose). The rubber ones are all in great shape.
Boost gauge - Local shop (Achtuning) has the APR vent gauge for $150.
Any other gauge I should consider?
Did I miss anything?
