Saturday I took the mufflers I bought when I first purchased the car back in November and made myself a stainless catback. Still need to pull the down pipe and fully weld the connection there. I will probably drop the rest again at the same time to look for any pin hole leaks and patch those up. I'm really happy I decide to use V Bands for the two connections. They make assembly and disassembly a breeze. Total damage with shipping was about $350 for everything less the $30 I spent on the flex pipe I decided not to use.

Didn't get any installed pictures or pictures of the front muffler and the straight run from the cat back. Hopefully I will remember to grab some when I pull it down again.
The catback to muffler after a few miles.

2001 A4 Avant - FXK04'd
1991 Coupe Quattro - Project
mine came out of an audi 90.. but any small chassis that has the three knobs for manual heater controls.. i dont like the vaccum setup factory so i changed it.. you need the heater box, controls, heater box wiring to controls, and the manaul lines.. i pulled the heater box and left the manual cable lines attached still .. was easier that way
well i got ripped off on some bumpers.. rear s2 and a front rieger..
i knew the rieger was cracked but it appears the bumper was broke in two and put back together.. wouldnt be bad if it was done right.. horrible job.
and the rear s2 bumper which i thought was perfect maybe a small scratch or scuff, came and had spyder cracks all through out and it was also cracked in the plastic, and the paint had about 12 coats of primer, paint, clear that all started to peal off along the bottom where it meets the texture trim.. so im about 6 hours into fixing the back one and no where near the end
thats the trouble with these cars.. the parts are rare and its hard to buy stuff in person.. i learned my lesson .
I'm thinking about bumper swaps in the future myself along with the hood. I dunno though.
In the meantime, I'l like to refresh all the rubber / mounts / bushings underneith the car. Any advice? I have the "thump" in the drivetrain when shifting. Seems like any load or relase of load (no pun intended) makes the thump (can feel and hear - sounds like it is coming from the rear). I am assuming this is the rear diff mount. I rocked the car back in forth while in gear and saw normal engine movement.
It's sitting in the garage and is going to be a long term project...haven't had the time to get into anything yet.
1995 Audi Sport 90 Quattro
what did i do today. can i count yesterday?
i ran 10.16 @ 138 with a 1.49 60' in the quarter. and grenaded a rear diff on the next pass.
so today i put in a new rear diff, refurbed it a bit, and will go back out next sunday and complete my 7.50 - 9.99 second NHRA license.
and i may swap out my manual rack and just put the power rack back in with no juice. it dont matter when its a drag car and you arent a pansy and can steer it manually! same with brakes. no booster or bomb, just a straight master cylinder.
changed oil and loaded up for Pacific Waterlands car show tomorrow, where my car will be displayed in Integrated Engineerings AND Double J Motorwerks booths (they are side by side and car is in the middle).
as well, going to try for the 9.xx pass as well. 10.05 the third pass ever, and last weekend 10.16. we shall see.

Ok I bought 20v sedan, 1990 90 model
Bad-heater core bypass, rough idle,burnt tps, ****ty plug wires
3rd owner, 1st owner was californian, 2nd was a VW sale person( no clue to maintianing a 20v)
Then me, 4th Audi I owned! 2 4kq and 1 90q 10v and now 90q 20v
Things I did pass year- did b4 headlight and hood do to original b3 headlight were broken! also did the h4 headlight relays and higher wattage bulbs!
Converter to regular brake booster setup- hated the hydraulic setup-also abs will come on when tapping the brakes
Things I did today on 9/11! Respect and prayers to our nation!
Converter to 30# injectors and 7a injectors adapters
Replace the throttle body- tps was burnt- missing-broken heat shield, made a heat shield too
Converter to 2.75 inch maf housing from ford engine- it has center air tube built in it and modified the plate to fit the 7a maf sensor in it! Removed the hatichi idle stabilizer valve- it was buzzing loud!
Test drove it, OMG! It idles and has 20v growl to it! Now it really moves!
The do list- heater core with possible manual heater box,288 front brakes with G60 calipers, both cv boots(outer) major tuneup(wires,plugs,fuel,temp sensor), center bearing,front and rear sway bars,new bilstiens shocks with stock springs
Remember I bought this 20v for 700! it has 220k on it, it already has new starter,ignition switch, ball joints,rear diff mount, contol arm bushings,valve cover gasket,radiator and fan replaced before I bought it!
I installed the idle valve, it didn't like cold start without isv! runs a lot better with injectors and idle valve! Started doing the heater core setup! Well I have b5 passat heater box with manual setup! I don't like climatronic unit in Audi! I know the heater are the same in b5 passat and in the 90 series! Also similar to mk2/mk3 heater core! In b5 passat- they have a full metal version! That I want! Remember this a mod that may work or make it work! I like modern setups without electrical servos and vacuum servos too. I'm doing the whole manual setup with the wiring too! Hard do find decent 90 series at pap! Once again, this box is free with the cables and harness!
