Check out page 8 and 9 of the APR fuel pump fitting PDF, they've tagged on an Audi technical bulletin showing how bad the cam followers can get and the damage it causes. From what I've seen of these, it doesn't seem to make much difference whether you're running a modified the motor or not.

Just be careful then as you will get more fuel coming out when disconnecting the pipes.

No holes then :laugh:

That's good news, when I was looking into this, everything I read at the time suggested the early engines were fine, it was the revisions that came with the bwa engine that were the problem.  AXX i'm told had no issues

The issues were more with the early AXX engines as they had a chocolate cam lobe.

They altered them to a better grade metal on the BWA engines.

For the sake of £25 part and about 30 mins work it's worth inspecting/changing every 10k miles.  :happy2:

Anyone with an early (two metal pipe) fuel pump done this and if so how does it differ from the one metal / one rubber pipe pumps?

It's harder to do is the main thing.

Other than the physical changes to the pipe that's about it.
