After writing a nasty letter to Meloche TD, they finally had the case reviewed and allowed insurance.
If you complain enough and not give up on the first "No", things can happen.
They told me this is the last time they will insure a foreign VIN for me... wait till the 80q avant with tdi shows up.. ;)

I was thinking of going to Shannonville, my friend does track days there with his Nissan and wants me to come out.
Last time I was there I ruined a set of tires... but then again I was 19 and thought I was Schumacher.

I had a windshield from one of the low mile parts cars, so that worked out really well.

Just curious, if your insurance company is such a pain to deal with... why not have a broker find you the best rate?

I switched to a brokerage after about 6 years with RBC who wouldn't reduce my premium to reflect age, record and cheaper car (b6a4 --> cq) so I switched and saved a bundle.

Intact is who I'm insured through these days and they're very affordable. They even did agreed value on my black car without an appraisal :)

B4 avants are sooooooo f-ing cool, S2 is icing on the cake! Cheesecake that is. :wink: :P

Shame they never came to the US in a time it seems like the smallish wagon would have done well, but maybe the small hatchback ruined everything lol.

So... got the varimap installed... by myself.. woohoo..

Now, can anyone tell me if these solder joints look OK??

Just keep in mind this is extreme close-up.

Just need a bit of a assurance before I button it up again.

Thank you!

And couple of shots from Carlisle, thanks to John for driving it down.

Don't stress the solder job, it looks fine. Just clean up the splatter a little without bothering to touch the current tracks, and/or check continuity between points if you want to be extra sure there's no bridging due to the bit of splatter.

It was nice to meet you at Carlisle, and it isn't very often you see one of these in North America. Thanks for bringing it down!

Another issue arose. I was getting only 7-10psi of boost, needless to say it didn't feel as brisk as it should (this is on the stock computer).
Pulled codes and got one for G61 (2142).
Replaced the knock sensor this evening, what a PITA (had to move the P/S pump out of the way).
Anyhoo, took it for a nice drive and still the same. However no codes (4444).
Also have a new N75 valve in there, thought it could have been a problem.
Throttle opens all the way (thought maybe the Full throttle is not triggered), that's not the issue.
No boost leaks that I can see.

Any other reasons it won't build full boost?
Starts at 7psi then raises to 10psi as rpm go up.
I have not checked if the ECU calls for full boost, but the wiring between N75 and ECu is fine.

This one isn't a diesel, Micah :).

I would check for intake air leaks--boost leaks and leaks pre-turbo, in the inlet boot or breather system.

Few fancy pics

And the big Black upgrade. Huge difference from the stock G60

Image

Image

Still troubleshooting the lack of max boost, ECU gives me 4444 now that I changed #1 knock sensor, I checked every other sensor including MAF for operation... still no go. With a super stiff spring I can get 21 psi so the system is capable of making that pressure... back to the drawing board.

Originality has just taken a back seat... wood is out, carbon is in... not to mention the Recaros

Image

They need a good wash, but I could not resist trying them out.

Image

Image

Trying to fix the A/C I broke a nipple on the compressor, the line was seized solid.. doh! Trying to figure out if I can use the R12 compressor in R132 system and swap couple of lines (they are different). It is getting hotter out there.

I've converted 3 B3s from R12 to R134, and despite the naysayers, they blow cold 40F ish Air.
Its important to change the receiver dryer, orifice tube and associated orings..good luck!

Beautiful car Martin. Those look like European market Recaro seats from a mk2 VW.

Did you get boost issue figured out?

Turned out to be MFTS, S2 use their signal to limit boost like the 3B cars.
Disabled the feed to the ECU, no more boost issues.

Upgraded the rear brakes.
Who knew that a complete B7 S4 setup bolt on.
This system uses a vented 300mm rotor, so nice balance to the Big Blacks in the front.
Following the S2 forum thread:
http://www.s2forum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22558" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Everything fits under the 16" Avus, however the e-brake cable spring touches the rim, ever so slightly, so for now no spring, need to figure out a solution as I would like to keep the stock 16" wheels on it.

Also got the front suspension redone with HD Bilsteins and compbrake mounts.
Rear got Sport Bilsteins and full alignment... she's ready for winter duty (limited).

Nice car! Will a spacer on the rear wheels give enough clearance for the e-brake spring?

Almost three years now.
Car has seen few trips and couple of winters
The original Lazer Red has faded just like any single stage paint left in the sun
So. A bit of TLC to bring it back to its glory.
I have decided to keep it summer only, since dumping $2k into the A/C system :(
Not to mention it was starting to go south
Off to paint it goes.

how did the power steering pump thing work out? The pulleys can make some funny noises when the pumps are fine.
