I will be joining the 20v ranks by finally being able to build something I have wanted for almost 20 years now - a wonderfully running, beautiful turbo'd 4000 Quattro. I'll spare the story and give the highlights: found my third-time-a-charm 4000 last month in NH ('87 Quattro, Alpine White, script interior, potential 'special build', 79k on odo [not believed] but solid and very clean) and then a less-than-stellar '91 200 20v donor the same week. Pictures are attached.

As I finish my project plan, I am starting the build thread with two things: 1) project intent; and 2) the current build sheet, open for opinions. Overall, I am building this as if Audi built a UrQ sedan, if you will. Here is what I'm after:

Project Intent
    - Reliable and durable w/ near OEM quality and look
    - All functionally retained, except a/c (initially)
    - Smooth, early power delivery - city driven, will never be tracked
    - Targeting high-200hp with ability for high-300s upon turbo and ECU upgrades
    - Built so motor is only pulled again if needing to be rebuilt

With that in mind, below is my current build sheet. The notes within ( ) is the planned source while anything with '?' are items I am still researching or debating. I have not completed my review of all the MG or Project Pad threads on similar builds yet, so, any of you been-there-done-that experts, please chime in. I will be updating this post as we move along, hoping it will become a solid reference for any others following this path. This will not be a fast build, as I want it done well.

    Have block checked for warpage (Area Auto Machine)
    - Have it dipped cleaned?
    - Replace freeze plugs?
    Have cylinders checked for out-of-round and taper

    - w/ new snub mount (034)

Set the engine control immediately to Vems or something similar
Custom clutch with basket from s8 or rs4b7 or 3.0tdi
016 gearbox is very short and it is not convenient, better 01e
the torsen in the rear gearbox does not have a very large effect

Appreciate it!

I haven't read about basket from an s8 or b7. What does that provide?

"Targeting high-200hp with ability for high-300s upon turbo and ECU upgrades"

for this HP level, you dont have to rebuild/upgrade the engine.
for AAN/vems on 3B, you will have to figure out the CPS
for 200, the stock urq intercooler is good (border line) anything above its need to be upgraded (limited space)
and Bosch 044 fuel pump is internal.


before you do anything, just read this forum, everything is here

Appreciate it. My interest to re-build is part of my enjoyment of the project. I'd be fine to just swap it over but knowing how long I want to keep this, I will enjoy rebuilding it to ensure it last as long as possible.

I honestly love the way the 016 feels behind my AAN in my 4000, its a bit short on the highway yes, but around town and up to 70, its most enjoyable. I have the 01E ready to rock in the event i kill it, but im happy with it now. All your plans seem pretty in line with mine, i stayed with AAN motronic (stock ecu) and feel for what you want it will be maintenance and trouble free. and either 3B or AAN harness are very easy to integrate to 4000. one of the easiest swaps ive ever done as far as wiring was concerned.

So awesome! And thank you - your message is very encouraging! Your FB post a few months ago was actually one of the sparks for me to finally pursue this. I think you have a great build!

I may ask you some questions as I get deeper into this, if you're willing.

No major updates so far. I've been working on a deal to exchange my donor 200 for an already pulled 3b, which sounds like it'll work out this week. This should keep a 200 on the road but still get me a 3b.

Question: what all do I need from a 200 from a swap? I know the full motor with all manifolds and connections and lines; flywheel; ECU; harness. Anything else??

I want to be sure I have everything in the exchange.
