Quote from: RS ZWEI on November 04, 2013, 07:34:04 AMTo answer a couple of questions:I not sure if a standard Audi 80 has two radiator (I wouldnt think so, but a 5 cylinder may do?)I dont know about the DV.The injectors look the same to me (green in colour).You are right, the coolant should be pink, G12 or whatever its called?Also, do you have the Porsche/Audi hand book?
Quote from: le mans on November 04, 2013, 12:57:00 PMThanks, yes I have the hand book. I also downloaded the maintenance manual (Audi 80) and the repair manual (RS2) from erwin. Qualitat just quoted $1100 for genuine radiator sourced through EMD. They think they can get one for $550 ex USA (not genuine). It's the same radiator as the Audi 80, but the 80 doesn't have the secondary radiator like the RS2. Also the previous owner has already replaced that secondary radiator - looks like new.Your fusebox looks similar to mine then! Yes I have the cover too, I'll have a gander.
Quote from: RS ZWEI on November 04, 2013, 01:23:57 PMThe only thing that could have been added to my fuse box could be a fuse for the jammers?I was thinking about the wheels, RS2's have a set of 5 full size wheels so why didnt the just owner put the spare on the car?Also have the fog lights had a tint film put on them or are they a proper aftermarket unit?
Quote from: wilco on November 04, 2013, 02:08:04 PMJon, nice buy.The small secondary radiator in the front was standard on the 5-cyl quattro coupes of that era. Pretty sure I had mine repaired for very little, may have even re-cored it. Wouldn't bother to go new.W.
Quote from: le mans on November 03, 2013, 10:22:45 PMTime will tell lol. It's apparently running stock boost at the moment (20 PSI tapering to 16?). I will try and get all the niggles sorted and drive it as is before I decide whether or not to turn up the wick. I've only done 25km in the thing so far! I might see if I can get it on the dyno on the 30th. Bit tricky as I'm working. My boy loves to see the cars on the dyno so maybe his mum will bring him along

Quote from: le mans on November 11, 2013, 04:46:53 PMWe had our first decent drive yesterday. Car feels so solid. Front end is a bit soft/bouncy - suspect new shocks needed. Bilstein Sports recommended?
Quote from: le mans on November 11, 2013, 04:46:53 PMManaged to get the right software for the Link ECU. Looks interesting. The ECU fitted is called Link G4 Extreme Pro. We had our first decent drive yesterday. Car feels so solid. Front end is a bit soft/bouncy - suspect new shocks needed. Bilstein Sports recommended? Car has no rattles apart from a small one from the glovebox door when idling. There is a slight shudder through the steering at motorway speeds. Something to look into.
Quote from: RS ZWEI on November 11, 2013, 05:11:21 PMDid you take the light out to change the DV?Wish I knew Tony had that knob, I would have jumped at that.
