A few weeks ago I purchased Billybravos old A4 1.8 t Sport. My intention is to use the car for trackdays until I finish my 90 S2 build.
I drove the car back from the midlands to my workshop and pulled a few parts off as I like to leave my mark on a car before using it.
The idea of this project is to do as much of it as I can on the cheap as I want to have a little fun, but not spend all of my S2's budget.
First thing to go was the standard turbo. Now being replaced with a little T3.
Next up is a cheap XS Power manifold.
The car is sporting a few plumbing and wiring horrors and the seat mounts just have to go.
Nitrous controller and purge valve birds nest.
Nitrous supply line rubbing on steering columb!!!
Seat mounts aren't great and may upset a few scrutineers.
Some of the underbonnet cables and pipes (especially the nitrous setup) are insecure and chaffing so a tidy up is needed.
The nitrous nozzle was found to be loose, so leaking boost and aimed at the wrong angle.
The purge valve pipes need securing.
Saving the best for last.......The front brake hoses are more than overdue for replacement!!
I've got a set of 440cc injectors to fit. (pics to follow) and a Gizzmo boost controler so I can run a softer spring in the external wastegate for wet weather low boost.
I'm fitting A8 front discs with the old Compbrake 4 pot calipers from my S2 as the brakes are standard at the moment.
I'll add to the thread as and when I do some mods.
