    Hi lads, Im back with an old skool audi 80 B4, im up for giving it bags more power, test vehicle lol.

    Nice to be back. The B6 died from the sludge issue, and it took a while, but i got another audi and its wicked, never had an 80.

    TDI rules lol ;)

    The 1Z TDI (90bhp) is a well respected engine. That workhorse will run forever with regular oil changes. Got mine to 175k... And it was still mint.

    You can get the tuning box for the 80 but im not a lover of them ( each to there own )
    I personally would stick a bigger set of injectors in it to give it more fueling and through time look at a larger turbo.
    I had an old MK3 golf TDi that had the same treatment but also had been chipped. It used to leave my mates 110 Octavia for dust

    yeah injectors may be the best route to go, and I have an MBC on the wastegate line already so can turn up the boost if it smokes after changing them, anyone know what ones fit?

    you could try the injectors from the 110. ive got a good set here if you wanted to give them a go?
    stick them in and take it for a run if youre happy then make me an offer no obligation

    hahha cheers brother, I just passed on what I tried when mine went wrong, Im so glad its helped so many people over the last 3 years!

    I love turbo-diesels. Im an electronics engineer, and my Uncle Jackie was a bus mechanic, he got me interested in diesels and particulary TD's at teh age of 9 - and when he died I lost a great mentor. I was 15 then. RIP Uncle Jackie & Auntie Janet the Clippie.

    heyyy now that sounds like my kinda deal but seriously PM me with a price bro and I'll buy them.

    ;)

    My ambition is to find, and fit, an S2 interior (avant not coupe cos mine is a saloon) - OMG its so beautiful, it deserves to be in my 80.

    'Nuff said lol

    My daughters man works in one of the biggest, and cheapest scrapyards around - fingers crossed!

    yeah have to agree interior is nicer in the b5 but the facelift b4 is still good. Also agree that the Audi Avants are the nicest estates you can get. They really suit it and the proportions are perfect. One of our senior bosses has a 57 plate RS4 Avant and holy sh1t I would give lots to own that bad boy, its metallic black with black alloys and those fat arches mmmmmmmm (homer drooling moment)

    Aaragorn hows it goin mate! Glenrothes eh?, yeah the UPInverkeithing is my fave cos the prices are cheap, and flat across all cars and models.

    There are a few in Cable Rd near you where the council tip is - can be useful. Next is KDY but everything is piled up high.

    Didnt realise there were a breakers near the tip, will need to have a squint next time i'm round there.

    UPullit didnt have much last time i was there, bar the run of the mill fords and vauxhall type stuff.

    across the roundabout from the swimmin pool, straight down and turn right, drive past the tip entrance, next left and straight on there's 3 breakers down there but henry russell is the only one worth bothering with. Glen breakers is always shut and pete's never want to sell anything.

    yah wheels definitely needed. either multispoke, or something but not sure and funds limited at the moment, if a cheap set come up I'll grab em tho 4x108 is not so common nowadays.

    I stuck a set of avus style wheel trims on in black for now, not sure if I like em better than the steelies but hey-ho.

    I used to have a cracking set of deep dish 4x108 alloys off a audi coupe but sold them earlier this year. some ford wheels would be worth looking at.

    damn I forgot about both of those! Ok hunt is on.

    now on a more important matter - my rev counter doesnt work....I think the clocks in the car are from a petrol B4

    the part number is 8A0 919 035 and I cant find any mention of that number other than on petrol models, they also have a configuration block of 3 wire links, say 1, 2 & 3 fitted = US Petrol V8 etc and 1 fitted is UK petrol, none fitted is UK Diesel but I cut the link and it still doesnt work. Im not led to believe the clocks are not original except for the fact the rev counter doesnt work and the part number seems to indicate a petrol cluster. aaaaaaaaaaaargh!

    Anyone got any ideas? I wonder if Aragorn could check the number in his TIS? wink wink ;)

    Now a lad from Falkirk has a set of 110 injectors which are next on my list for £30 so a nice power upgrade, and it came with a MBC on the WG line so if the new nozzles smoke, | can turn up the boost to compensate. Just need a boost gauge first.

    Happy days! It really does need some more grunt, especially up a hill in 4th and 5th but its ok on the flat. Also have to test the intake for boost leaks.

    Had an idea... I can drop the money into him first and when he tells u its there you could post em then if you like. That way you get the money when he gets over - Whatever you think, I would have em sooner than later if poss but if not its cool ;)

    Anyway the weekend is fine cos I can't fit em till Sat or Sun so either way lol
