    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:

    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

    This is a nice catch! 10 years back I was looking at RS2's from the swedish Blocket site, and they was as low as ~10k€, but hadn't the money at the time.

    Can't you just grind off few gramms with an dremel tool to get the weight match? From the inside of the piston..

    Sure, in a perfect world it should be 0g. Anyone weight the difference of 5 original pistons from a stock 5 cyl engine?

    Good weight difference is not more than 1 gram.

    Yesterday i had a quick visit to the garage to measure the weight difference of the new vs the old piston. It was about 5g, The difference is not much, so i think it will be allright. Hopfully i can assemble the crank/rods in the weekend. What do you think, is 5g to much difference or is it nothing to worry about?

    Yeah i know. But this car will be stock as long as I own it. So no need to buy new rods. I think they will work just fine

    Today i dragged myself out to the garage for some cleaning of the oil channels in the engine block. Lots of brake cleaner was used together with long thin brushes to get all loose stuff out. The previous owner did have a good washer so it is was wery little oil residue and stuff left. After cleaning the block I cleaned the oil channels on the crank shaft. Changed my damged piston to the best of the two i bought. Will check the weight on all pistons/rods assembly before i make the final assembly of the bottom end. Well, after that I measured the piston ring gap. The piston rings are made for the 1.8t I think. Bought from cp-s in Sweden. They were all about 0.35mm gap. Audi claimed wear limit to 1.0mm according to the workshop manual. New they should be in between 0.15 and 0.35mm. Well after that It was godnight. Next garage visit i will assemble the bottom end with crank/rods and pistons.

    Long time since last post.
    Today i took the masking off and cleaned all the threads on the block. Took some time to do but feels good when putting together everything. Cleaned of the gasket surfaces a little bit with scotch brite. Next step is to clean all the oil channels, have some good brushes that i used on my other engine rebuild. Soaked the oil channels in WD40 so hopfully it will loosen up any burnt oil a little bit before i start with the brushes.

    Here is some pictures from todays work:

    I also got two used pistons, only need one so i will use the best of the two.

    Today i sanded down the primer and put some coats of medium shiny black on the block. The black will be less shiny when dried up. A hell to get paint in every corner and shape of the block, but at least i think i covered it all. Helsps alot with gray primer. Oil pump is just there to cover the surface, will use my original pump later wich will be painted like the rest of the aluminium parts. Well not much more happend today, here's some pics of todays work.

    Engine block painted, will be less shiny when dry:
