    Possible Incorrect Info from HP Tuners in Audi MED17.1.1 Tune File

    I've been going through the tune for my 2012 A4 2.0T TFSI and noticed that the variable cam information may be incorrect. Maybe someone more knowledgeable than me can confirm this. In the tune the variable camshaft is labeled as an intake cam. I've been reading technical documents, and it looks like the AVS system for the E888 is on the exhaust cam. I attached the technical doc below, and a pic from the tune.

    EDIT: So I spent more time digging and I was wrong. The intake cam has VVT, and the exhaust cam has variable lift (AVS). So as far as I can tell everything in the tune file is correct. I am still trying to find the OEM cam specs for a gen 2 E888. Sorry for the confusion. Maybe someone else can learn from this.
