So.. the ax has fallen and last November I was able to pick up not one, not two but three Ur-q for the price of one.

Here is the original ad:

"I have three Ur Qattros on the blocks...
1. 1981 Mars Red (yes an 81 from Europe) that is a rust free shell but has 90% of the parts brought in as a race car and not registered in Canada.
2. 1983 Silver first one delivered to Canada (I was told it was sold at Agincourt Autohaus) complete but has just sat for a really long time...
3. 1984 Red with Black leather... my dream car... has an 11 year old $10k+ strip and restore from the Audi dealer in Ottawa never hit perfect body with paint job that is documented and would make a new R8 jealous. Over $20k in new Audi parts are into it and all it needs is the Engine and trans to be dropped back in."

I was mostly interested in the '84 and rest was considered a bonus.
So... the '84 is already at the house, '81 sold to Mike Hopton and '83 sold to John Atkinson, both have their own pages on Motorgeek.

I had a low mile AAN sitting waiting for the SQ projest, but that can be few years away. I also have an RS2 harness and bunch of other bits.
Unfortunately this also means my 4kq tdi project is cancelled, I much rather drive around in a 20vt Ur-q than a 4kq tdi no matter how nice it would have been.

- Wagner Sport EVO exhaust manifold
- MTM intake manifold
- FMIC 28x9x2.5
- Gerrett GT3071r turbo with 3" V-band hotside.
- Controlling it is VEMS ECU via S2 ABY engine harness

Suspension
- Fully restored, blasted and powder coated sub frames, struts, control arms.
- New front and rear tie rod assemblies
- New ball joints, front/back (20v RR front)
- New bushings (alloy subframe, nylon control arm).
- New Bilstein HD shocks all around
- New Eibach (Sportwheel special) springs
- Compbrake solid strut mounts all around
- B4 upper strut brace

Brakes

Driveline

- 7A flywheel
- Southbend Stage 4+ Clutch kit
- 4.11 big rear end with new large seal.

Interior
- Orignal 1984 dash

- Original seats reconditioned with Letherique products
- Euro Ur-q Green digidash with brand new OEM 20v harness
- B3 tripple gauges in the center console

Martin,

I saw the pics in the gallery and then was going to come here and post but I saw you added them in your original post. Anyways, looks straight and clean, nice find. It looks to be a non-sunroof car, correct? Did this one come along with the one with the zebra interior that needs a total resto thats been off the road for 18 years or something?
Yep, non sunroof.. ;)

This one had brown leather, both of the other cars '83 and '81 had Zebra.

Martin is this the red UR-Q from Mark Motors?
Nope, didn't know there was one at Mark Motors.
Any details on that one?

Ahh... Michael Wack? It's been on and off for sale for few years now. He used to attend our meetings when he lived north of TO. I saw him back in Aug at Vagkraft.

I know that car well.

So.. got both, ABY and MTM intakes on their way from Europe.. woohoo.
Also got an order to Tots for a set of ADU cams (well only the exhaust is different) and matching ADU cam belt pulley.

Also got going on the engine bay, pulled out wiring harness, entire steering and hydraulic systems.. next step is painting engine bay to match the rest of the body.

Pics to follow.

BIt of an update, got the engine compartment and interior cleaned out. The carpets were shot, mostly eaten by mice, the HVAC system had to come out and straight into the garbage, it was full of mouse nests.
Engine compartment all naked, now time to clean up and throw some fresh paint on it to match the exterior and the upper portion which was done already before.

John,

This is what I've done since November, so don't worry I don't think I have more spare time than you. Not to mention mine had the body work and paint done before I got it.

If you are planning on having digidsah I would use your current donor.. if you want analogue gauges I would find another donor with standard clocks.

I have not had the pleasure but if you are willing to pull the carpets and dash out it's not that difficult to swap out entire system over.

Cheers

I had both green and orange digi in my old 3B '85 and I liked it for the "unique" aspect.. also the orange dash worked well with the 3B and I could use the trip computer as well. The tach was ok.. it was the speedometer that could not keep up ;) I was toying with the idea of installing a digi in this car, but this is an '84 and I will keep the interior original.

Cheers

Bit of an update, since first page is full of Ur-q projects.. ;)

Block is back from machine shop and crank is installed.
Just need to get the rods/pistons in in our next wrenching session.

As for the body, it's been a very busy spring for me but not on the car.
The only thing I managed is to install the rear smoked tails, tidy up the valance and get the trunk panels on.

Mike Sylvester was nice enough to supply me with some door rings and trunk decals, thos will be going on this weekend.
He also made up some under hood decals, but they won't see a working engine for a while.

MTM intake manifold is on it's way from Europe.. the Euro is great now for buying over there.

Subframe and suspension components are back from powdercoating so next week's project is to get the suspension back under the car so I can roll it out of the garage and powerwash the engine bay.

More to follow.

So, more updates.

Trunk compartment is all back together including spare wheel, rear bumper back on and the car is back on it's wheels.

Eibach/Sportwheels springs and Bilstein shocks topped with Compbrake top mounts. Subframes have 034 solid mounts. Brand new tie rods and RR control arms and ball joints up front.

Managed to get all of the trim back on around the windows etc.

Engine is back home and awaits the 6-speed from Europe.
Also the MTM manifold arrived, looking great.
Decided to go with a 28x9x2.5 intercooler up front, I hope I don't need any Vaseline to get this puppy in there.. ;)

Time is flying and I am loosing hope that this thing will see the road this year.
Still have the interior to go back in and obvioulsy the entire engine compartment needs to go back in. On top all the small stuff like fuel/brake lines etc. etc.

Good thing is I managed to get another set of Sport Q front calipers so those will be used instead of the Boxster units.

More to follow, and I promise to take some pics.

Cheers

So, here are some pics

Back end almost all complete, just need the black backing for the plate area.



Trunk also complete, just missing the antenna, can't decide if I want the manual or the power unit.



Engine compartment powerwashed and ready for stuff to start going back in.



Suspension back on the car, all new shocks/springs and powdecoated struts/subframes.



Interior not so pretty yet, but slowly getting there.
I haven't found any brown carpet yet, doh! Might have to get the brand new black set in there.. not the end of the world.
Today I got couple of wiring harnesses back in and the floor is all done, now comes the fun part, getting all the shiny bits back on.

Cheers

Hello Martin:

Looking *very* nice!

Looking at your pictures.. What are you using for front tierods? I don't see the 'normal' urq 'inboard' adjuster anywhere, and I'd like to know if/how you made the passenger tierod end adjustable.
Thanks

Well, since this is going to be a 20v I don't have to worry about the wastegate placement a'la 10vt, so this one happens to be a brand new 90q assembly with Rabbit/Scirocco tie rod end to match the strut taper. The driver side is a new stock 4kq assembly again with a Rabbit/Scirocco outer end.
It's nice to have new complete assemblies, for that kind of money you get nice new adjusters and new inner bushings to boot.

The typ 81/85 assembly does not have the funky bend in it and works just as well, Worldpac didn't have any at that time so I grabbed what they had on the shelf.

Hope this helps.

So now I am at a first crossroad... shall I stick with analog dash or go digidash?
I like the unique factor for the digi, it's so 80s, but at the same time most people prefer the analog (Scottish plonkers included ;)

Well, that's the thing, my SQ will be the rally monster with Bufkin dash etc. But this is going to be a daily summer car.

I have a complete RR digi harness (new) and all the components ready to go.
I am not worried bout the digi not keeping up, I rarely look at the the tacho anyway, keep it in gear till it stops pulling or the rev limiter kicks in.. ;)

Cheers

That digi goes up to usual I5 redline of 6500rpm at which point the entire rev counter starts to flash.
I used to have it in my 3B '85 Ur-q which originally came with a green unit.

I have both the green Euro and Orange US version. Now, which version shall I use?
Green digi has a neat feature of having the trip computer readout in German and has a boost gauge built in.. not good over 1 bar of boost though.. :(
