F/S 1987 Audi 5000cs Avant Running Project [SOLD]

[SOLD] is a project 5000cs Avant. It runs and drives, actually runs great, however with issues as usual. First, I must say that I really do not want to part it out and would much rather sell as a whole. These are very rare as you all know and I would hate for it to get crushed.

There is a lot to say about this car. It is not a daily driver at all in current condition, this will need work. The biggest issue is that it does not stay running. It starts right up and will idle good until it warms up. Once warmed up the rmps will slowly drop and it will stall. I have to wait about to a minute for it to start up again. But if you drive it down the road, it will keep going just fine, its just when you let of the gas it will stall. In fact, it runs real good when it stays running and pulls hard for 10v. I would even say that it is fast. It does have a few upgrades that help that. Intended Acceleration ECU with appropriate wastegate spring for 1.8 bar, custom cold air intake I rigged together using Volvo CIS intake bowl and open header because catalytic converter was clogged completely. I also redone almost entire fuel system and by that I mean everything besides fuel pump.

There must be just a stupid vacuum leak somewhere that I cannot find or some sensor not working correctly. My guess would be that at least the throttle position sensor is not working. I simply do not have time to work on this car anymore and would rather not let it sit for ever. Every once in a while I will start it up and drive it around the block and so want to keep it, but than realize that I will never finish it sadly. I wanted to put rally springs on it with 1" lift and simply have fun with it.

Approximately 250k miles.

Make me an offer, but make it a reasonable one. You all should know how much I spent on parts alone, even tho I know I will not get that money back. Ask me any questions and for more pictures. I may not respond for a while because I'm too busy at this time, but I will get back to you as soon as I can.
