Yeah, I've done a few 5 cyl TBs on my T44s too.
Also helped my son change the TB on his 98 A4 2.8 30V.
If it is the same as the 30V you will need the special tool that locks together
the cam pulleys to keep them in sync. Another special tool is a hardened bolt
and pin that locks the crankshaft in place.
Parts: Water pump, TB tensioner pulley and Cam pulley seals are also a good idea
because they are sometimes leakers.
It is quite a tight fit to get the job done. The whole front clip can be removed
and rotated out of the way but I am not sure how to accomplish that.
Relaxing 12 plus job : ) for a first time.
