    Hello i'm new

    Hello everybody. Just found this site and thought i'd join.
    This is my daily drive
    how it was when i picked it up...........

    The engine had spun a bearing(i knew about this when i got it )
    so out with the old............



    ....................... and in with the new(65k engine )...........


    The paint work wasn't the best it looked rather pink............. so out with the polish..........................


    It came out no bad........

    The car as it stands now..................



    I've got a set of The new rs4 replicas coming for it and
    i've drilled the airbox so it now goes vroom cha cha cha when you rev it
    I'm planning on drastically lowering it pretty soon

    yep all in it's cost about 750 to buy the car fix it and put it on the road
    It's no quattro those badges are off the car now cause they were annoying me i took those pics last week
    It's the first time i've ever pulled an engine out of a car and replaced it................. and it still hasn't went bang yet which is always a good sign

    Looks like you did well for 750!

    How difficult was it replacing the engine? I did my timing belt, etc and that wasn't TOO bad... but just thinking about building up a spare ready to go in.

    Low is the way to go...

    It wasn't to difficult............... the only problems i had were i broke 2 water flanges at the back of the head 1 of the old engine taking it out and 1 off the replacement putting it in and i blew the battery as the power cable going to the starter is black and i assumed it was an earth lead
    If your going to do it my advice would be take alot of pictures to remind yourself where things go

    When i lower it if it don't rub going over speed bumps it'll not be low enough

    Sorry ian,Wullie wasn't at the meet. I've given it to Marcus (bluedub on SVAG) he'll see Wullie before i do. I'll get Wullie to pm you when he's got the manifold..............I'm trying to get it up to you as soon as i can
    The car is still more pink than red the now. Time for me to break out the buffer and the G3 me thinks
