Out shooting today... :thumbup:



As I got the IMSA crankshaft, I am thinking about building a sort of Sport Quattro engine.
Basis would be 2190cm² in normal cast-iron block, standard head and KW style exhaust manifold (if not getting a Wagner for K24/26 flange). Theoretically limited at 8500 rpms.

No big news actually, but I'm getting a Sport Quattro turbo to match with the original exhaust manifold.
Will try to get some ideas of figures from James B, but I believe this is capable of 450hp on 1.3BARg.
But look at the graphs anno 1983, my Lehmann 10V has more torque, and it drops at top rpm - how will this be on a valver? Don't know, but the K27 turbo is according to rallye documentations atleast.

James (Fusilier) has such a great writeup on the old style KKKs on his homepage, so I will not elaborate further over this. The thing I can say however is that I am a bit puzzled that the in-port of the K26/24-7200 RS2 unit has a straigh inlet port, whereas this K27 has a coned one from approx 62 to 46mm.

Note how the backplate also has the K28 numbers. Sadly no idea what these represent though.

From a friendship, where I somewhat supported with details in the restoration of two old rallye Quattros and a finished rallye Sport Quattro, I hope to get some input on the rallycar shafts. Also on its way from Germany are some Die Wethje parts.

I believe a lot of spares are for sale, as they also purchased some S2000 cars for more fun-activities.

Not sure on pictures gone missing, or if I just forgot to present the ones we shot for the magazine.
So here goes!








edit: look how aweful those speakers look! 1. pri to change them out with something more descrete.
Been thinking of Infinity 693.11 or what they're called, a bit of oldskool plastics look.

Purchases Samco induction kit, but it's not to my taste with black/red brick color combination.
eBay add even stated available in brick red only, so there's a hot tip for you!

Might be some parts (rear spoiler?) being painted, but generally it has only gotten a round of clear coat. Over the stripes and such "of course". :banghead:

Trying to sort out some "upgrades" to get a tighter steering and driving feel to the car.
The old rubber from 1988 might need some swaps to do that...
So are "we" all purchasing from seekparts24?

Stumbled across an offer I simply couldn't refuse...
Being at home (due family matters and sick leave due grief) I had the time for a small trip.

Gathered nothing less than a cast alloy Audi Sport block from the rallye Quattro A2.
I am requesting some historic input on this, due 10V or 20V route.
This suits very well for my Gr B engine parts-gathering. :thumbup:

I am happy atleast! Will try to figure out some header on this, and most likely it will be standard 10V with repro or non-OEM parts. Might do it as simple as standard header, 270° cam and replica plenum/inlet and exhaust manifolds.

Been struggling with the brakes again/still.

First I sprayed WD-40 on the handbrake-mechanism to prevent "locking", handforced it back into normal position, and it still slightly rubbed.

So a drove it a little to see if it helped, heated brakes. Left the car at the garage for a while, started going back to the storage very slowly - overheating, pedal to the floor.

Not very impressed by these brakes. Not sure if EBC items gives worse clearance aswell...
