Love my Daughters, haha her reaction is great! I have created a Petrolhead.
Very nice! W8 6 speed is one of my favorite car for sure, always wanted one espacially in the wagon form but hard to find. I opted for another unicorn instead but still have my B5. Can't wait to see more updates on your end!Hiya RAH, Did mainly maintenance stuff, belts, rollers, main seals, new head gaskets, head bolts, and inspected tensioner pads. measured turbochargers for play and movement. then cleaned, painted, and assembled. Going to keep the engine fairly stock, I am looking to get a W8 FWD 6 speed next. Thank you much and for your interest.
Hi PZ. Just the engine harness. To get the car running I had to ground the small pin on the fuel pump relay directly. I have not removed ir cut any of the other wiring at all under the dash.Did you rewire the dash or just the engine side plugs? Are the grounds still in place and good behind the coolant tank, under the driver's side left foot well and of course, the frame horn to motor mount bracket. That might be the issue for both of the codes.
There is a ground for the 2.7t engine, that one is good and clean. I can double check the toqrue on the O2 sensors, did not think about that at all of effecting the resitance. I will do some more digging on the Fuel pump relay stuff. I managed to get my hands on some diagrams from the 1.8 and 2.7 so I will paw over thoses and source the problem hopefully that way.Does the engine harness have a ground under the coolant tank? Not sure if the 2.7T harness is that different from a 2.8. I have had to loosen and tighten O2 sensors even though they have their own ground wire. I don't know much about the fuel pump relay.
It will me later down the road. I am not stranger to special fabrication work. so it will be fun! Stuffing a Audi 4.2 V8 into my 924.Interested to see how you will adapt AWD to the FWD body, because it is not a bolt on deal. It's a lot of cutting, welding, reinforcement, and precise measurements. Have you thought about how to go about it?
The 1.8T fully dressed (OEM flywheel/clutch, cat, downpipe, alternator, intake, p/s pump, starter) but without the a/c weighed in at 426lbs.
The 2.8 V6 with the lightweight flywheel, 4 cats, downpipes, a/c (but no starter), weighed in at 519 lbs.
The FWD 5sp manual (no flywheel/clutch) weighed in at 95 lbs. I did not weigh the 4MO 6sp manual without the lightweight flywheel/clutch but it should be about 160-165 lbs.
