I was talking to Tim the other day and he showed me these pics. that def look the business I didnt know it was yours. def more flow to say the least

Today's mini project seemed to go well. I was getting very little air from the defroster vent, so I pulled the DS knee board to investigate. Turns out one of my cables had detached itself at the controls and was just moving around. I held it in place, and was able to get everything to move as it should.

Now on to the "seemed" part. Drove the car to work tonight, and had zero heat! I honestly think it was cooker inside the car than outside. Now I need to investigate this. Not sure what changed on that front between Friday and tonight...

It's fixed for now...

As some have pointed out, I did have some air in the system. I filled the tank, and ran it without the cap for a while. Watched the tank level drop significantly... So filled back up and hasn't moved. There is also the issue of the cables no longer being attached to the box. I don't mean where the eyes wrap around the pegs on the arms, but the clips that hold the outer plastic to the heater box. So for now, they are zip tied to the floor vent to keep them from moving. It actually worked extremely well! I can cylce through the different vent positions and adjust the heat level! I'll have to pull the dash out at a later date and fix it correctly.

Getting our first snow of the season here in South Central PA... I really expected it to blow right past like all the early storms normally do, but I was wrong! I haven't fixed the CV boot yet, and didn't bother to change over to snow tires. Once again, no playing in the snow for David...

So it has been a while. Nothing really happening with the bandit this winter, as I have been slowly working in the CQ. Last night we were kind of slow, so I decided now was time to do something for it!

I have a rather large 58mm turbo with a #8 hot side. I also have an Audi K26 #6 housing laying around. I wondered if I could make the big turbo fit into the smaller housing. Seeing as lots of people have them machined for HX35s, I figured I would give it a go. I made a chucking fixture and went to town. I made all the dimensions the same as the #8 housing. I had to take about .300" out of everything!
Image

Unfortunately, I found out that this particular housing is cracked...
Image

It will have to do for now, it's all I have. As you can see, some of the volute has.been machined away. The #8 housing has been ground to make it have a full circle again. Is this necessary? Might be a dumb question, but I don't know. Pic shows ground area
Image

The final result...
Image

While it does appear to fit, it in fact does not. It appears I have cut the wrong radius in the back, so I need to put it back up and address that. It doesn't seem to be hitting by much, but hitting is still hitting. I'll update when I can.

I may have the greatest neighbors ever! We are very much alike, and have no problem helping each other out when needed. He made this for me in his sign shop as a thank you!

Can he make more of those for sale? I'd totally buy one (assuming it's affordable)! And I suspect I'm not the only one by a long shot.

So tomorrow the new tires for the bandit should be here! They are classified as an "all season," but with the very straight line tread, I don't see how! They will be mounted on the borbet's from the CQ, and the CQ will be getting the Cab/80 comp wheels.

The tires took an extra day to get here, but they did show up. Accelera PHI-R 215/45/16. Fairly soft compound. We shall see how well they hold up.
Image

I took the borbet's off the CQ and cleaned them up.
Image

Got the tires mounted up today and on the car. Quick trip around the block to settle the suspension. I like the look of the semi dished 5 spoke wheels more than the 6 spoke cab wheels

They were on the coupe when I bought it. They are a borbet wheel, but don't know what model they are.

That was an easy search... They are borbet type E wheels

Well it's been a while, but finally have something to post again. I've been having some major sync loss issues lately. Know that I'm running a hall sensor on the trigger wheel, up front, I doubt that's it. It does it after it gets hot, so I'm figuring the hall sensor in the dizzy is going bad. It's an MC2 dizzy, so figure 1990 ish for build date.

I found a new dizzy on amazon by MTC. Listed for "Audi 5 cylinder". I figured for the $23 shipped amazon wanted for it(normally $83) figured it was worth the gamble because the 200 2.2l was listed. Well it came in as a 5 window, so no good there. Now it's in pieces, waiting for me to pull the dizzy from the car and swap shafts.

Two things:
1. A dizzy for $23... damn! I suppose it must be Chinese but that's still crazy short money.

2. Doh! I knew you'd been having sync losses and were concerned about the sensor in the dizzy but never put 2+2 together and realized you were thinking the sensor was responsible for the sync losses. Sorry to say I'm pretty sure that's not the case... I think the MS uses the cam sensor to establish engine position during cranking/starting then from that point forward relies on the crank sensor only (although it may use the cam sensor to resync if sync is lost). It should be pretty easy to test... start the engine, then with it running, pull the plug on the dizzy sensor. I think you'll find the engine continues running just fine.

Well, I'll have to try that. I assumed the crank and cam sensors were used the whole time.

As for the dizzy, it was really cheap! I was looking at them for $83 then suddenly an amazon listing popped up for "last one, $23." Figured at that price I really couldn't lose. It uses the smaller more modern sensor, but that should be fine I would think. That if the swap is needed that is...

Well as Eric stated, I pulled the plug from the dizzy after it was running, and it stayed running...

So this happened.
Image

Had to pull the whole front end and intercooler to get to the crank damper. I've always thought that maybe this trigger wheels "missing teeth" were too tall. They are just shallower than the OD of the trigger wheel.

Not a great pic but you get the idea
Image

I also found one of the alt bracket bolts was completly backed out and just chilling in the bracket. Yes, I know, I need to get PS hoses, that's the leak you see on everything..Image

There is also a small amount of oil in the intercooler plumbing. Enough that I felt the need to wipe the small pool out of the coupler when I took off the intercooler. Looks like the seals on the turbo may be going bad. Good think I have the hybrid to put on it haha.

My uncle killed my dremel, so I spent some time figuring out what happened, and now I'm tired. I got the dremel working again, and waiting on a reply about cutting that area down some. Now it's time for bed.
