  • struikie - Audi 80 B4 quattro project

    Hi guys!
    Long time lurker here. It's time to introduce myself.
    My name is Jan-Willem and live in the north of Holland.

    Car history:
    1992 Audi 80 B4 2.3e sedan in dark green (sold)
    1997 Audi A4 B5 1.9TDI sedan 230bhp 430Nm (sold)
    2005 Audi A4 B7 2.0TDI avant 300bhp 560Nm (sold)
    2006 BMW 335d touring 411bhp 746Nm (daily)
    1993 Audi 80 B4 2.6V6 quattro

    I always wanted to own a S2 coupe, but I waited too long
    and they became too expensive. Then I moved to the Competition
    which also got expensive so I ended up with a 'normal' quattro.

    Got the car from Germany with a broken engine.

    I originally planned to do a ABY swap and build the engine for 500+bhp,
    but now a days these engines are made of GOLD. So I changed the
    plan to the 2.5FSI 07K from the USA, but parts aren't made anymore
    by Iroz.... So I ended up going for the 2.8 24V VR6!
    I have a BorgWarner EFR7163AL on the shelf to go on the VR6,
    but first I need to sort the car out. Fixing the brakes and suspension
    first. Engine swap will not be until after the summer of 2022 at least!

    Option codes:

    X0A - Equipment options subset for Germany
    B0A - Component parts set without country-specific building regulation
    C5S - Alloy wheels 8J x 19
    G0G - Five-speed manual transmission for four-wheel drive vehicle
    H0P - All-season tires 215/55 R17 94H (NAR) low rolling resistance
    J0J - Battery 300 A (63 Ah)
    M7G - 6-cylinder SI engine 2.6 l/110 kW (V6) 2-valve, closed-loop catalytic converterbase engine is T7G
    Q1A - Standard seats in front
    1AC - Anti-lock brake system (ABS)
    1G3 - Alloy spare wheel with original equipment tires
    1MR - Leather-wrapped steering wheel
    1N3 - Speed-related variable steering assist (Servotronic)
    3AF - Right exterior mirror: convex, power-adjustable and heated
    3BE - Left exterior mirror: flat, power-adjustable and heated
    T7G - 6-cylinder SI engine 2.6 l unit 078.3
    8E1 - Fan and windshield wiper interference suppression

            Now for the brakes.
            I wanted some serious brakes so I got a full Cayenne 18Z set
            and had them powder coated in RAL7040.

            Got the brackets for the front brakes with the Mercedes 345mm discs from
            Albert at Verkline.

            Designed my own brackets for the rear axle for the Cayenne calipers on the S4 300mm discs.
            Got a set of Brembo handbrake calipers off a Jaguar S-type R and widened them by 8mm.

            Different lever from Epytec.

            RS4 B7 mbc for which a also bought the conversion set from Alex.

            5x112 conversion hubs from Autewo with new bearings.

            Cunifer 4.7mm brakelines.

            Rear axle with Goodridge lines.

            For the front axle.

            Painted the bracket in RAL7040.

                            Hey JW, good to see you here!

                              Thanks Henkjan!
                              You have seen all this on as well ;-)
                              I think there is some more appreciation for the older cars here in contrast to Audiforum where it's all about lease cars not more than 5 years old...
