AUDI 80 rebuild- Open light
November 07, 2016 01:03PM
Good Morning everyone.

Finally getting around to rebuilding the Rally car after the roll at Idaho this year. I had initially planned on shelving the car for the winter to work on the Datsun. after the roll, plans have changed.

My little shop is a 25x25 space that isn't really big enough to do two side by side projects of the magnitude I have in mind for the Datsun and the Owie. So I took every part and piece for both cars shoved em in their respective cars. I started pulling out all the mix'n'match shelving, storage and too big workbenches acquired from garage sales and friends and sold, gifted and traded it all away. Sneaking in time from the family and house projects I managed to get new workbenches built, organizing shelves, and a workspace that just might house the mess I intend to create.

I'm tugging the Rally car down to a frame rack today to straighten out the strut tower that relocated itself then going to Start a complete refresh of the car moving into open light.

I've been slowly collecting parts and pieces as well as selling off a bunch of the old parts over the last couple of months. I think I've finally come up with all the bits and bobs to put together a really nice OL car.

Yanked the old 10v turbo and sold it and the spare motor to some dude in Salt lake. Picked up a NA 20v from a coupe quattro from a guy in california along with a whole bunch of other niceties.
Factory long tube header
Set of Piper Camshafts
Head with bigger holes going in and out of it
CNC machined large bore MAF, Machined Throttle body, Factory ECU with some fancy mapping
Balanced crank, flywheel, and Aluminum front pulley.

Also big thanks to Mike Hurst for his help in the repair process. I picked up a parts car to start swapping wrinkled and crushed parts off the rally car.

John once I get it off the frame rack I'll run through the suspension. I got fed up with the mess and made myself a promise that I wouldn't touch the car until the shop was ready to work in.


Really getting excited to complete the strip down and refresh.
