Amjids Imola RS4

Hi All. I haven't been active much this year with business woes and ill health but i was recently asked by a gentleman called Amjid also from Bradford to build his RS4. So to ease myself back into the tinkering i happily accepted.

Amjid has a large garage business in Bradford and he is a bit of genius with all the electrical aspects. However, like most professionals in various trades he struggled to find the time to work on his own.

I was given the block and massive box full of bits which had already been stripped over 2 years ago as his K04 car had blown one its turbos. This made things all the more difficult as lots of stuff over the years had gone missing from said box and plenty of other random stuff had found its way in to the box.

So anyway enough rambling ill let the pictures do the talking and there is plenty of them for all you fiends. First of all introducing his Imola B5 RS4. Freshly repainted prior to it coming off the road where its sat on this ramp for approx 2.5 years...



Block mounted onto engine stand and started to strip...



It was manky. Very manky....



My anal builds everything gets the full clean ready to go back on...



Hone of the cylinders ready for the new rings...



A nice delivery of bits from TPS and some stacked lowering CR gaskets...



Bits back from the powder coaters...



Time to start building...







That was obviously enough for that day...



Relatively crack free heads, cleaned, planned and rebuilt...



Front end on and heads...



Time to start bolting all this lot on. Refinished mani, throttle and boot...



RS6 hybrids freshly rebuilt...



KKD manifolds...



Niall of Originial Fabs 3" decat downpipes...



Bolted up...



Back to his garage for the final push. Flywheel and clutch bolted up...



Gearbox and 63mm intakes on...



In she goes...



KWE coolers...



Diff in a refreshed powdercoated rear beam...



Fin...



Or at least i thought. It started up with little fuss and quickly started purring like kitten. All apart from the bag of spanners sounds that was coming from one bank. My heart sank as instantly new there was a problem with the cam chain and tensioner. After changing the tensioner for another used one in situ without removing the timing it was still doing it. Applying 12v straight to the tensioner stopped the noise. Being able to swap the tensioner in situ although not pretty shouldn't really be possible. I quickly realised and remembered that one chain wasn't renewed as it had gone missing from its box.  Rather than doing the smart thing i stupidly allowed a used chain to go in rather than insisting a new one was bought. This was costly mistake for time. However, after all timing off and new chain went in it sounded sweet...



Here laid side by side you can see the chain is longer. Where the new one has no spaces between the links the used one has spaces between them all. Not massively different but obviously enough for it to start catching on the casing.



All done. Now its time to sort a couple of little niggles here and there and then book it in to MRC to see what she does. Expect some more pics and vids soon.

Its only running wastage pressure but already i just wants to move. It should be fun.

That really is top class work. I would literally cry in a corner if I was faced with that job. What power are you hoping to get out of it?

Top work mate good write up
Shamx1166

This is a phenomenal car with outstanding work.

Great write up done with an excellent eye for detail👌

An imola B5 RS4 is just another thing man.

Good job sunshine

Quality write up and excellent work Kent.

Thanks for the kind words gents. It was good fun to work on with all the lovely shiny parts. Bit of a upset with the chain as it meant i missed his deadline for his sons wedding but sometimes when its just not meant to be its not meant to be. Lesson learnt anyhow.

Re power im not 100% sure. These turbos apparently did 600+/600+ on the S4 that Type R Brad and CJ broke. So with the full RS4 motor and compression drop i would of imagined mid 600's. We will see. It will be quick whatever, i can already tell that.

Very smart mate, and a great write up on the work carried out  
RSteve

very impressive!

But prepare for a leaking sump... such a common mistake.

Always run the sealant on the inner side of the bolts.

Superb thread!

We shall see.

RSteve is right



Kent

Right for what car? Not being funny but that looks nothing like a B5 upper oil pan.

If you went inside of the bolts everywhere you'd literally have no contact area in certain points of the pan. Look at my picture you cant go inside bolts on the areas where there is the oil drain holes... sealant has to go on the outside.

ya, the image is odd, but is what's on manual for a 2.7T

I can upload the complete pdf if you like
Kent

What manual is it?
armageddon

tou can se it here: http://workshop-manuals.com/audi/s4_quattro_sedan/v6-2.7l_turbo_(apb)/engine_cooling_and_exhaust/engine/engine_lubrication/oil_pan_engine/component_information/service_and_repair/oil_pump_pan_filter_and_oil_cooler_removing_and_installing/page_3065/


till page 3072

edit:
ok, a little more web search led me to this: workshop-manuals.com/audi/a4_mk1/power_unit/6-cylinder_engine_2.7_ltr._5-valve_turbo_(rs4)_mechanics/engine_lubrication/removing_and_installing_parts_of_lubrication_system/removing_and_installing_sump_(top_section)/

so either way, it should be ok

That's the one pal! Look I even got the little circles round the big bolt holes.

I wish somebody would invent a gun to get the shit out the tube tho. My fingers were like id been up all nigh.. never mind.

What a phenomenal job you've done on this car mate. Hats off to you all the way. Must've been a tough one from start to finish but the rewards have payed off. A lovely imola yellow back on the road to be appreciated for the rs4 enthusiasts. I've actually got a rs4 b5 myself Kent. I'd love to get your contact details and my work to be done by you! Please get in touch.
