Don't talk so loud. My 93 started stumbling this am. Replaced all 1.8 coils last spring.

Seems to be the bane of late - please let us knjow what you nail down as a specific
 Agree with the coil pack probablility, but look for boost leak too!

 My top contender would be a coil pack.

 Hey guys,
 Just returned from a 900 mile mostly highway trip from Texas to Colorado....Noticed
 shortly after heading out that there was some significant, albeit inconsistent stumbling
 upon acceleration.  Could half-throttle it and keep it from happening in the lower
 gears, but fourth and fifth suffered under harder acceleration at lower revs.  Checked
 all the obvious places for a tear, and tightened up all hose clamps I could get to
 easlily.....no difference.  Car still pulls pretty well at upper RPMs, but not smoothly
 by any means.
 Was able to replicate this with more regularity as the trip went on, and seems to have
 gotten worse as the altitude increased.  Was downright difficult at 10,200ft in
 Leadville, CO.  Disconnected battery overnight to reset ecu, etc. and found no
 difference today.
 My thought is a boost leak, but cannot see/find a tear, and revving the motor in place
 does not put enough load on to make anything readily apparent.  Before I start tearing
 off hoses, etc. anything else I could be missing?
 Car is a 95 s6 avant and just turned 80K miles this trip.  Hoses, POS, etc.
 all original.  Replaced spark plugs and wires @ 60K.  Checked spark plug torque, all
 Any and all help appreciated!  Do not want to take this in to anyone if I can help it.
 Best regards,
 Jim Fleischer
