Did the changes made fix the "cheap whiskey" smell under hard acceleration?

Also, I did make my purchase yesterday...


Good to spend time with you Dave!

There is still a fuel smell on boost but it seems better now. Still something I need to address though. All in all, the car was great for the about 1,000 mile trip. It's always SUPER nerve wracking to drive a project car that far but it seems like the proof that I did it right! Found a couple little idiosyncrasies, but nothing that slowed me down. Even got over 200 miles for the E-85 tanks. Averaging 18-20 mpg on e85 isn't bad.

Sooooo -- pics of the new acquisition?

Pics will come in time. Want to get it to my place first. At least the parts car and tractor are gone now...

Good to know, thanks for the tips! Now here's to hoping the yard I ordered mine from didn't break it...

I'm sure they knew how to remove it without breaking it. It appears that the design is common to all new Audi/VW - I just don't ever work on the new stuff!

Parts car (shell) gone good!

But what’s with the tractor leaving?

It's been a while for an update!

First of all this somehow ended up behind my truck:
Image

1987 924S - non running and with damage on the driver's side. Had a grey door sprayed red on the drivers side and dents there from a hit. It has potential though!
PO thought it overheated and blew the head gasket. At the same time that this popped up on craigslist, this showed up in the upullandpay:

Image
to be safe, I pulled just about everything I could.

Image

The interior came together pretty quickly. I replaced one of the seats and just cleaned the hell out of everything else.

Image
Image

Then time to deal with the oxidized paint - the single stage "guard's red" had become "guard's pink" - so some polishing and....

Before:
Image
After:
Image


Anyway, got it running after finding a loose resistor in the ECU (and replacing the ECU)

polished up more and looks like this now:
Image
Image

I'm going to build the spare engine and put it in the car and see how I like it. It's pretty fun as it is!


Now onto the Audi content:

I finally got around to starting with the AC install on the white car. I got an RS2 fan shroud from Marc and used a junkyard found 200 500 watt fan. The great thing is that the RS2 shroud and 200 fan are a lot shallower than the 7a setup:
Image
7A on left, Rs2 on Right

What I had been dealing with was that the 7A shroud and fan were rubbing the frame rail a bit which made me have to tilt the fan a little bit forward at the frame rail. This made the AC condenser not fit.
Image

Anyway, I pulled the radiator and combined the radiator, RS2 shroud and AC condenser all together and put it back in:
Image

Everything fits great!

now though I need to wire the 200 fan and I wasn't really sure how to do so. for now I'm using the 80 Amp fuse from the 200 fan harness and an 80 amp relay that will be triggered by the existing fan system. Shortly, I'll switch to a PWM setup through VEMS.

Lastly, I ordered a set of S2 colored gauge faces and swapped them out today:

I made some progress wiring up the fan. I ended up using 2 relays and was able to maintain dual speed control from the existing triggers in the car and the 7A fan's resistor.

I wired as such:
Image

It works great so far and OH BOY is that high speed high!

This look like a good solution to you electrical nerds out there?
