    A while since an update now


    But does not happen as much in the garage during summer



    Well, the intercooler construction went straight into the bin!!
    ~0.8bar/11psi pressure drop ... worthless

    It did not come as a surprise, had almost expected pressure drop, but maybe not so much


    But that's nothing to cry about, just to assemble back the old system again!












    A fun thing was anyway that I came in 3rd place in the largest Audi meet I Sweden, NordicAudi SwapMeet woop woop






    Finished 2nd place last year and still chasing that 1st place





    And after the inspection in November (which went perfect), It sounded like the engine had started to knock, much like conrod bearing failure.
    So it was just to start tearing out the engine before it got worse, I thought!

    But everything looked like new ...! All bearing play was within tolerance ..

    Then I discovered when I talked on the phone and stood and fiddled at the power steering pump, that it locks up every two revolutions.

    So I tore the whole engine apart when it would have been enough to change the power steering pump.

    I should have removed the fan belt before I tore apart the engine. but easy to be wise after the event!






    Now I at least know that the engine is in good condition!
    Took the opportunity to replace the bearing when the engine is still in pieces



    Changing to a 6 speed gearbox, just beacuse I had one laying around





    Before I put the engine back again shall I do something about the engine harness so it looks good (not visible at all) and clean up the entire enginebay so that it looks perfect!



    Are replacing cams, injectors and intake now when the engine is out, and then do a dyno tune ... need to get over 600whp !!



    Will be some reconstructions this winter ...
    Need to get a bigger oilcooler, the olitemp is raising fast as hell

        Hi there,
        Way to go brother and will tune in to follow with great interest since I have 1 1994 S4 that I have planned on to upgrade but not so much as you and a lot to learn. maybe can feed off some of your experience as my learning curve.
        Best of luck.

              Lovely to see another great C4.

              Thanks for sharing. Always good to be able to learn from other's expertise and experiences with these C4 and B series cars.

                  Just curious to learn - no pressure.

                      Do you / anyone know what the spec of the AAN cams and the 7a cams are for comparison purposes with the specs of the Shrick cams ?

                          What other aftermarket arrangements are you referring to?
                          This is an easy and simple fix of the ventilation! Me and some of my friends have had good experience with this setup

                            There is usually an cut original S4 air duct there, the one that goes to the airbox, but this picture is from a car show and the duct is ugly, so i took it away

                            You can see it on the picture with the gearbox, it lying on the ramp just above

                              Nice car. Are you satisfied with water silicone hose ?
