Coupe quattro rebuild
« on: June 20, 2017, 09:33:29 pm »
In approx a month I will be taking possession of my 1986 Audi coupe quattro.
I need to make room in my garage before I do, I will be rebuilding/restoring it.
The quattro was stripped but most of the parts are still there so I have started bringing home parts, one of the biggest parts is the engine. For whatever reason the original 2.2 engine was sold and what will be replacing it is a KG 2.1 turbo engine from a Audi 200 (what I can tell).
I was the second owner so I am quite excited to have it back in my care.
The rebuild will be a long winded affair and will depend on my health (I have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) and finances, I am not very good at updating or taking photos but will do my best.

You ever get the "I wish I had never sold that car"?, well this is it, i had thought I would never see it again and when I came across it, I promptly bought it.
I am no stranger to the spanners (have been fixing cars for most of my adult life, along with small motors, chainsaws etc).
The body is mostly rust free save for a bit by the sunroof.

Under the windscreen


And the rear of the roof and over the passenger side.

They seem to be the common areas as well as boot hinges and A pillars.
I have a few coupe bits lying around. Might be able to help you out if you're missing stuff.

Nice one Rob.
I am going to need a sunroof, smoked tail lights, head lights. Will see over the next few weeks what else I need.
The car does have rust in the A pillar but is only surface

Boot hinges seem ok.

Fitting a 10v turbo from a 200 running on kjet is a real pita. Easier to ditch it in favor of efi. Ill have a look for what typ85 stuff I have left as I had a major clear out a few months a go

Don't know if you're on Facebook but there's a groups called "Audi Ur Quattro GB"
Someone on there selling a sunroof for 40 quid.
Postage would add a bit though.

US
1st-3.600
2nd-2.125
3rd-1.458
4th-1.071
5th-.778
final-4.11:1

AAJ
1st-3.600
2nd-2.125
3rd-1.360
4th-.967

Good info, have been searching but nothing like that came up. Which is the better box?, I assume they are largely the same aside from 3rd, 4th, 5th ratios? or are there other differences?.
