Check and clean your oil passages, if I remember Audi they also use a hollow crankshaft for oiling, you may have to remove it completely to clean it out. How bad is the build up inside the engine?

If your ruining a rod you most likely have the timing out. Audi engines are all interference engines so if your timing is even a tooth off it will smash a valve off of another part easy. As for oil issues check your crank case hoses they often get clogged from using the wrong oils or not doing regular replacements of oil every 8000 km.
