Got Brake line , Cutter , Bender and Flaring tools. Hoping this all goes smoothly tonight.
Figured i'd try and get some life in this forum.... i know there are a bunch of us out there
So i'll back track to the day i picked up the car
Friday - Picked up my 86 5K CDQ
Saturday - Get car appraised for Minestry...Get on road with Temp permit ! Coolant return from turbo blows apart @ the frost plug on the way home !!! Repaired. Filled system . All good !
Sunday and Monday - Enjoy Cruising around town in my Car. Rear Brakes making alot of noise and not braking well... Need to replace
Today ( Tuesday ) - Put in Order for B&G Lowering Springs ! Replaced rear pads and rotors, wash car. Step on brakes... pedal hits floor.
Line to RR caliper is leaking now. Car is up in air awaiting new line and fittings tomorrow.
All in all.... I love this thing !

Swapped in a New ISV. Fixed the Idle Hang up.
I shouldn't have said stumble... it's more of a hesitation going into boost or while in boost
Edit: So i was going to pick up my girlfriend from work when it dawned on me.... I can rev it like crazy in neutral and no bogging... but as soon as there is a good amount of load being put on the engine it tends to bog or hesitate... I'm thinking the Cat is Plugged.

Placed order for 2.0+bar chip and socket !!
Gutted Catalytic Converter.... still waiting to Road test to see if it is the cause of my hesitation.
Edit: Still is hesitating ... But not a total loss ! Back to drawing board
Removed A/C Compressor
Swiss Cheesed Air Box.

Got 2 flat tires in some puddle. I went to make the turn and in an puddle something cut my 2 tires side walls out :S So my audi got 2 new tires. And all 4 tires reblanced. Fixed the blue wire to the altenator. Also topped it up with oil to max line. (I think I did not have it up there after my oil change). Toke apart my center console cuz my freind made my asstray sink into the shifter area. Donno how but its possible if u got a 5000s. Oh and toke pics of my audi
Will this ever end? This is what happens when u have a car for like 4 or 5 years. Have it parked for most of it. And u get it from some one who had it parked for like 6 years or so.
Hmmm sweet, I didn't see this thread until you posted in the pics thread.
Today I drove the audi to the gym and back...and on the way there AND on the way back, AND another time I took it in this empty lot with like foot deep really soft sand and had a blast using my quattro lol
car has big backfire sometimes while getting into boost. It needs more timing in the map. Tune to come soon.
Hmm.... What all do you have access too ? My friend who installed my chips has been bugging me to find him Info on the chip .. he tells me he could write a program on it if he knew more about it. He is a programmer/engineer maybe we all can figure this out
Put in a New Fuel filter today... still hesitates but it is running alot better in general.
I think my hesitation is a huge air leak... my idle likes to climb up randomly.. somtimes it hangs up ...and it only really happens in 3rd,4th and 5th... under load... i'm racking my braing trying to figure this out.. everything i have done so far has made improvements but still have the same initial problem... and it is almost identical symptom to the when i blew IC - Tbody hoses on my old 5000...
I have access to EVERYTHING other than whatever you use to decode the Motronic stuff. It would be great to be able to chip tune these cars easily. The only problem to overcome then is spark hop. The dizzy's we use on the 3b cars are such **** I wouldn't trust one over ~300whp. If there was a solution for that, the sky would be the limit for stock ECU tuning on these cars. That is absolutely the best way to go.

Yeah i guess running Coil per plug won't work with the stock Triggering system... i plan on Running 034 EFI on my 5000 in the near future anyway. So i'll be ditching the Distributor for individual coils per plug
Also talked to Previous Owner ( My shop foreman who is the guy who owns the White 200 20v i posted in the Pic thread ) About the hesitation. As he knew it was going on prior to being sold and said he would help to figure it out.
Now looking at Fuel Pump/Check Valve ( PLEASE BE THE CHECK VALVE !!! ) which could be causing my issue. Going to do fuel pressure and leak down tests tomorrow. Already ordered check valve. Gonna put a fair amount of gas in it tonight with more fuel system cleaner to see if it helps out.. find it happens a lot when the tank @ a 1/4 or less.. plus i pulled the After run injector cooling fan .. so bad check valve + Vapourized fuel in lines could be causing quantity or delivery issues .

Stock trigger system is fine for triggering 5 coils on a standalone...not on stock ecu though of course.
I ordered some new tri-tip copper plugs today to see if that clears up my misfire/sloppy power.
If that doesnt fix it, then it almost HAS to be something in the ecu (i doubt it). I have 5 brand new coils, 5 brand new plug wires, and thats all that there is to the ign system.
The car currently has some random copper single electrode plugs (they are new tho)
Put the tri electrode plugs in today and damn she rips!
Also fixed a minor boost leak.
Took some logs of my misfire issue, and then it went away strangely...still trying to figure out why Megatune hates my computer
also took some pics from my cellphone...posted in the pic thread
Replaced my rad... only with a used one.. but hey.. it does not leak With some nice new coolant And looked into my misfireing.. well it appears that its more likley that the injectors are acting up. So my first guess with misfiring might have been wrong.
Oh forgot to say last time I also changed my oil I tryed to put the big vw diesel filter on for better protection. Becasue it same spindle and everything just a bit bigger filter. But since how the block is made, there is not enough clearence.
Today... I tried to open one of my rear doors and my door handle broke Oh well I have a ton. I just need to find it lol. When I'm back.
Hopefully this will happen soon..
I looked into junk yards in hungary so I can find some e-code headlights from an audi 200
Also wanting to replace my OLD OLD OLD fuel filter.. Only god knows how old that is... I know its way older than 4 years old.
Its been a productive day for me.
Put all the stock ECU stuff back on. (I think the fact that I got everything right the first time [firing order on dizzy correct, crank trigger wires in right configuration, O2 swapped out, MAF plugged in, stock ecu hooked up, etc] means that I've done it one too many times.)
Got an alignment this morning (was like .65 degrees off on both fronts), and the car feels much better now, and I have peace of mind about my new tires not going bad early.
Also picked up some Royal Purple and a Mann filter along with a low side R12 to R134 a/c fitting.
I tried to fill with R134 to no avail. I had the low pressure switch jumped in order to have the comp spinning while trying to fill it, but it didn't seem like it was taking it. I think maybe the fitting I have didn't seat right or something. Darnnn
Oh well, A/C is a luxury.
At least the rest of the car is solid enough for me to feel comfortable driving it for 4 hours 2x this week.
