    Pedal Box - Cause intake runner fail?

    Long story short.

    Intake runner fail, right side of the engine. Audi believed that the fail could have something to do with the Pedal box or any other outside source that adjust and boost the throttle and/or reactions of the gas and intake parts. I do not believe the Pedal box has anything to do with the failure.

    The solenoid tested fine, we are replacing box sensors, solenoids and intake runners. Additionally, we are doing gaskets and injector seals.

    Thoughts?

    Did the actuator arm of the intake runner flaps break?

    The software shows the right side stuck close and the left starting to have lag, this was before carbon clean, after carbon clean, they do not match up but the right showed huge lag and eventually stuck closed again I believe.

    Shop foreman spoke to me about it and that is the news.....
