For anyone hanging on the edge of their seats for an update, sit tight..





I've fit the Ali Crossmember and Diff support in Track density from AK Motorsport. I kind of wish someone did a fancy bracket for the crossmember that supports the Diff Mount..




I'm out of the garage on four wheels and I've put the front back on.



I've used a 2.8 core support bought from eBay for £35 inc postage and chopped the S4 support up for the rad surround (2.8 is different)








This means this.. Also the Core Support bracket lines up almost directly with the boot luggage bolts, Almost like it was meant to be..

Basically, Now I can run a big FMIC without chopping the bumper or losing the fog lights..



I've moved the ABS unit to behind the firewall and extended the lines from the original position, It was far easier for me this way, but I will be moving the windscreen washer bottle and fixing the lines in the far right of the bay and covering with a heat resistant wrap / cover.

I've purchased Stumpy's old Lexan Windows so I may fit them next, But i'll have to wait for a dry day now...



Also, bought this as I got annoyed at one spanner slipping, resulting in one black fingernail





I've done one of the heads again, refit with new FI exhaust valves and gave it a very quick clean, ready for another top strip when the gasket set arrives..



The MAIN things I can think of right now that I still need to get on with..

*Fit each corner with all the bushes I've got

*Fit the Rad to a permanent mount in the boot and measure for water lines and where to place a pump

*Decide whether to run a surge tank or just fit the 044 in the tank

*when the manifolds arrive, make sure I have enough room in the bay

*Pop the engine back in for good and reattach the gear lever on the inside

*Start to fit the top engine parts and make up the fuel lines

*Figure all the shit jobs I need to do because I've made things hard for myself...

Different!

How will the rad in the boot receive cooling airflow?

I'm going to cut the front part of the spare wheel well out and fab up a tunnel upto the rad. I'll also use a couple of Spal fans.

My next thought is to either cut out two big rectangle holes (like the S1E2 quattro) or just have a few circle holes.. I'll be in photoshop later

Id look at boot vent as well.  Try to create something where there us a pressure drop behind the car so the air is pulled through.  

Maybe in addition to the rear vents also slice boot skin in line with the car, bend down to channel to rads then cover opening with a mesh grill?

Pop into MS Paint and show me what you mean

Do you mean on the boot lid top? I thought it would let too much rain through..

I did wonder about what he meant haha!

More work done.

Built my heads with FI exhaust valves, Finally.. I thought I had done it already, but it must've been about 3 years ago and I must've forgot.. had a check and i'm glad I did. They're built up, finger tight. I need to wait on my self imposed spending ban to lift and the gaskets set will be ordered, fit, timed up and ready for the block

Big Port AML 2.4 heads, 2.8 cams and the S4 valvetrain



I've completely moved the ABS lines out of the way now, i'll wrap them up in heat resistant material (Exhaust wrap?) and also cover with a plate to stop any excess heat surrounding them (Can't be that bad as the front lines ruin next to the turbos anyway..) When the turbos are attached and in the bay, i'll look at where to mount the screen washer bottle. PAS reservoir will probably be mounted in the battery bay next to the ABS pump.







Side exit Exhaust anyone?

Also installed the clutch line. I originally thought there would be no problem. But I rechecked my info and there is a part number difference between UK and Euro/US OEM lines.. It almost touched the floor here, so should be plenty long enough.. I may add a 90 bend where it meets the slave though, just to take it off the top of the box.

No I did mean the boot lid.  Is this going to be track only or road use as well?  

You could create a cover to go over the section then whip it off during trackdays.  Or how about some NACA ducts running pipes inside the car from the rear side windows.  All depends on how much usability you want.

In the 4 years it's been off the road, i've only needed a car 3 or four times and borrowed one of the father in law's.. I used to have a "company car", now I have a van.

We have a Citroen daily. I can't remember the last time we went out as a family when the S4 was on the road..!
This will be a track car, but I will be driving it to the track.

Chopping the boot seems good, I can just fit a loose cover over the entire lid for when it's parked outside, it'll normally be in the garage.
I might start with the boot floor and if need be, look at cooling from the top.

I will be fitting ducts from each rear window too, that may just be enough

OMG...

Side mount manifolds have arrived..! Looking sweet.
















Even treat the engine bay to a wet rag wash and a blue roll to dry it off..!
