No, it should be good then, but definitely the tensioner. Once it's unsprung, you don't want to compress it and reuse it.

Default 04 Audi A-6 159 K

My mechanic told me I need head gaskets and a power steering pump too.

He said he wouldn't do the heads because the car wasn't in good enough shape.
Everyone else I know always comments on how great shape it is!

He recommended a new engine but then said that wouldn't make sense either since it's an 04..

I expected to drive this car til at least 200+
