After long separation the 1985 Euro with 3B is returning under my wing next weekend. So happy to have her back!!
When we bought our first house back in 2006 the Ur-q had to go (needed $$ for downpayment).. always missed her all this time.. great trips, even brought my first born from the hospital in that car. Now she's back!!

Welcome home Sheila!

in 2000 I bought her from a friend of mine Ralf Wiesner in Germany.. here is his site:

http://www.audiurquattro.de/

The only trick was she needed a new head gasket before being driven across Germany to the shipyard in Poland.
Here is a picture of me doing the work at Ralf's shop, Jan 2001

Image

Just before setting off on a 1200km trip

Image

Driving across Germany

Image

Image

At the Gdynia shipyard ready to go into the container

Image

Then couple of months later arriving in Canada
First a mandatory wash (Ministry of Agriculture)

Image

It was February so she did have to see some snow.

Image

Meeting with Mr Cook's Project... it was that long ago!!

Image
Image

Swap to Ronals:

Image

I still had my first Ur-q at that point.

Image

Spruced up before the first UPG meeting in CT

Image

Image

The drive down was great, thanks to Lino V for this shot.

Image

Then another CT gathering

Image

Then a 3B swap

Image

Image

Image

Some Sport brakes...

Image

And then we bought our house and she had to go.. few months before the sale:

Image

2014 pickup day, shaking hands with her last castodian:

Image

Ready to go home

Image

Drive home

Image

My son who was driven home in the car after he was born... excited to go for another drive

Image

Hopefully many more nice drives to come

That's a real beauty! Are you running a stock program on the ECU? Also, please if you have any information on the airbox you are running on that 3B swap Id be greatly interested and appreciative. Thanks!

The ECU has an MRC chipset.
Airobox is stock Euro 20v Ur-q unit (code RR).
I can see from your list of cars it will not fit any of them.

Hope this helps.

How does the shipping container thing work with a car? Care to explain the entire process? I'm just curious!

Hope to see the car at Carlisle next year ;)

Make sure there is minimal amount of fuel, drive it in, disconnect the battery, block it up and close the doors.. nice thing about container shipping is you can fill up the car with parts.
Drive on/off they usually want the car empty.

Did bunch of work on Sheila lately:

- Main radiator change and put the a re-cored aux back in with all of the original shrouding.
- Fixed the digi dash, lucky it was just bulb issues
- Thanks to Matt C Sheila is now sporting quattro script seats, fronts converted to both height adjust and seat-back release.
- Fuba electric antenna back in, same one that was in there before the same many moons ago!
- Threw out the Pioneer CD and installed Audi Gamma radio, much better!
- Removed the aftermarket blow off valve and installed new RR intake pipe.
- Removed home made catch can (Mercede power steering reservoir)... not sure who came up with that one but it was not working well and pissing oil all over the place. Installed proper PCV pieces back in.
- Installed brand new H4/H1 thanks to Audi Tradition, with HIDs... now I can see where I am going at night.
- Replaced the failed bomb
- Brand new oil cooler shroud thanks to Audi Tradition!

Still to be done

- MFTS needs replacing, need to pull the rad out to do that.. :(
- Wheels need a coat of silver paint, ATM they are painted flat grayish tone
- Factory by-pass valve needs to go back in.
- EGT gauge has an intermittent problem

Pics to follow!

This was relatively quiet summer for Sheila.
I was away in Poland for part of the summer so only couple of events.

First the June Jitterbug.. nothing like 4 urquattros going for a drive:
Thanks to Mark A for taking the '84 to the event.

Image

Image

Image

Then Sheila got to do the Stayner Air and classic car show:

Again, 4 Ur-quattros not too shabby.

Image

Image

She was also at Vagkraft, however I forgot the camera and no one at the show took any pictures of my car :(
So nothing to show for it.

She is going to the monthly meeting tonight and then probably off to winter hibernation in couple of weeks.
