Not sure, but....Im pretty sure they had a c3, so I doubt you would need to pull boost. Ive heard that the c3 is stronger than the a4ld, but I dont have first hand knowledge.

The A4LD is basically a C-3 with overdrive, so the 1-2-3 section is similar. The C-3 doesent have the OD section ,and that tends to be a problem area with the A4LD.

Why are you wanting to know if the autos were boost limited or not?

They were (11#).
