The A4 might be used for a track day but I need to make sure that
everything is up to snuff before doing so.

I figure pads are a must, as well as a full system bleed, but other
than that, what must be done to ensure that the car will hold up to
track use?

I'm wondering if I should or should not run a chipped setup or stick
with the stock ECU to keep engine temps lower, esp. turbo temps.

Also I wonder if Mobil 1 0W40 can hold up to track use safely- it's
really light stuff.

Any inexpensive ways to run brake ducting for track use? I might get
some dryer ducting to work something up if that's doable- maybe remove
the fogs to improve airflow to the intercooler as well.
