    Audi RS2 -94 Swe

    Hello! Like i don't have work as it is with keeping my Urs4 and S6 C5 on the road and in good shape i got an offer i couldn't refuse a couple f weeks ago...
    I have an old friend from the school who bought a RS2 in 2011, he was driving it for two years as a summer car. But in 2013 he got some blue smoke in the exhaust and decided to put the car off the road for some maintenance. His intentions was to rebuild the head and turbo at first. But then decided to overhaul the whole engine. He dissasembled the engine and started to collect parts for it. I called him once a year and asked if he could sell the car to me instead but the answer was always the same "no". Until a couple of weeks ago when he contacted me late in the evening and asked if i still was interested to buy the car. OF COURSE i was interested to buy one of my dream cars. I remember growing up and a guy in the same village had a RS2, every since that time it has always been a hidden dream far back in the head to one day have my own. So this week i went to pick my new money eater up for some treatment and care. After 1400km it was finally "home".

    Pickup time, the roof was leaking in water and covered the hood/roof in rust colored ****..

    Mold was starting to grow on the leather seats:

    Car loaded for the 700km drive home:

    When i arrived home after 16 hours of driving it was time to clean and wash the whole car before i was putting it to storage waiting for the engine to be built.

    Car washed and given a quick polish to get rid of all rust water stains:

    Interior cleaned and treated:

    Now it's "just" to assemble the engine. The guy who owned it before i bought it has collected most of the engine parts i need for rebuild. I will take the block to my engine builder and let him check the crank/measurements so its all good. The block will be honed, then get new rings/bearings and gaskets. All parts will be painted and refurbished so it will most likely take some time for me to assemble the package. But when it's done my goal is tho have a wery shiny engine bay looking as close to original as possible.
    Thats all for now, next step is to start assembly the engine block. Wish me luck

    Some time for the engine today. I wanted to put the oil pan back today, and thats what i did. Sorted out the right bolts, cleaned everything, and assembled the thing. I also double checked the bolts for crank/conrods before i covered i up.
    First gasket in place, double checked bolts/nuts:
    45764-d1003fe9604c7313e1a3fde536b28dea.jpg
    Oil pickup ready to install with new o-ring, self locking bolts at oilpump end and screws with locking washers on the "legs", also used loctite:
    45764-642aa25d8e1b72e8619a74e1b3796e70.jpg
    Oil pickup, oil shield and second gasket installed. Bolts torqued with 10Nm and with oil resistant loctite:
    45764-6668e488962f29da43b1b0d2b34b2da8.jpg

    Oilpan cleaned for the installation:
    45764-ee66914499889f72b68eebf91d0ceffa.jpg
    Oilpan mounted on the block! Hopfully for always:
    45764-4967cb12eb95d530ddc4017636615c32.jpg
    Did also mount the oil seal at the crank, flywheel side. Mounted some more parts on the intake. Next big step is to mount the head on the block. But i have some external cleaning of it before i will fit it. I also recognized a feew weeks ago that my cam gear is wrong..
    The RS2 is supposed to have the cam gear 034109105B, ofcourse mine did have the other one because of some one didn't know better. My wheel is 034109105, that is for the other "AAN,ABY etc. So i ordered one from Audi tradition. Should arrive next week.
    It's going slowly forward but i hope i will turn the key in the early summer time =)

    Today i had some time in the garage. Started with sorting out all bolts M6, M8, M10 so it's easier to find them when you assemble things. Then it was time for some painting off some brackets that holds the IC and some connector holder on the firewall for ex. I also put some fresh matte black on the intercooler. After painting i started to put a few things on the engine block. It's a good feeling when parts getting back on it's place looking good.

    Intercooler waiting to dry after i put some coats of Temadur 20 Black on it:

    Engine block with some parts fitted:

    Today i got a few hours in the garage before the girlfriend called me and said it was time to get home... I have the garage about 25 min away unfortunately. But it is what it is.
    The head, that was refurbished by the last owner, by a company, didn't fix the threads that were brooke on the EM side. I was angry about it when i saw it. But, a good company near by helped me to fix it, they put a bushing in it, M12-M8 and the job was done. Looks good to me, i think it will last forever. Todays work was to assemble the throttle valve. It was an easy and calm job. But to remember were all parts was before was not as easy as i thought, even when i had lots of photos. But at last it was together again


    Some one tried to fix it a while ago but ended up like this...:

    Yeah, turned out good i think. I did remove the worst rust with a rotating steel brush, then the company have some kind of cleaning bath before the galvanizing.
    They looked like this when i left them at the company that does the galvanizing:

    I feel like I post many pictures of bolts.. but that's what happens today. Freshly made stuff came today. But i also went to the car and took off some more stuff in the engine bay that need to be blasted and painted. Washed the intercooler in/outside. Was a bit of oil in it. Cleaned it with diesel and then hot water/compressed air. Going to paint it matt black. At the moment it feels like I'm going backwards, just dismantle things. Hopefully soon I can get the feeling it's coming together. But I have a hard time not to fix things that is looking bad
    Picture of the shiny stuff...

    I got them from a Swedish company that rebuilds generators. But i think you can find them on Ebay.

    Generator with new bearings:

    Generator assembled with refurbished bolts/pulley, turned out really good i think

    Garage time again, installed the sump baffle from PKKM (Thuppu). Will maybe help in the future at trackdays. I also mounted my new injector seats in the intake. Really nice pieces. As the screws/fasteners turned out so good in my opinion, i left the rest of my stuff for the same treatment. It matches the Porsche paint really good i think..

    Sump with baffle plate:

    "Extra pocket" installed with refurbished bolts:

    Injector seats installed in the intake manifold, used loctite 148 for gas,oil:

    Fasteners and stuff going to be electro galvanized yellowish:

    Thanks! Oh, i don't think i will go that far. Ofcourse i will drive it, maybe not at dirt rallyes but im planning to use it as a normal hobby car. I'm not a fan of not driven cars. They should be treathed good but driven hard
