I picked this up tuesday night for $1200. It's a 1998.5 2.8V6 quattro. The clutch is gone. I think the slave cylinder seized and smoked the clutch.

Sorry this pics are shit; I took them at night. The exterior isn't in the best of shape, but I've already got repairs lined up for that. The interior is in very good shape.

I've told some of you guys, but now I'll tell everybody. This car is getting my built Saab B204(2.0i4 16v, motor has balanced bottom end, forged+coated pistons, etc)+holset. I originally built this motor for my 1995 Saab 900SE, but I am sick of FWDFTMFL; and because I already have a couple grand into building this motor, I have access to solidworks and CNC machines, it makes sense to me to just put this motor in the Audi. And it will be unique and entertaining :)

My goal is to have it drivable for the Eurowerks show.

Ultimate plans: S4 bumpers/skirts, Vogtland coilovers, upgraded rollbars, ECS stg2v2 brake kit, Corbeau front seats, either V708's or oz ultraleggeras in 18x8, S5 look headlights + HID's, euro trunk lid, and i'm sure i'm forgetting stuff

how will you utilize the AWD?
Is the Saab engine AWD?

For 1200. I think thats a great deal. clutch isnt hard to change. Slave cylinder is even easier to acces when changing the clutch.

any CEL's?

ABS and CEL. it's got a huge exhaust leak before the 2nd o2 sensor, and i believe one of the abs sensors was installed upside down; explaining both of those problems.

the adapter plate to mount the saab engine to the audi trans will look similar to this:

This plate was used to mount an older saab motor (B202) to the transmission from an Audi 90.

So what I'm talking about isn't *that* difficult, and has been done before.

Nice. I like the project.

Definitely leave the 2.8 badges on, it will confuse a lot of people.

I really don't think it will be that hard of a conversion at all. That engine is all alum, so it should actually be lighter than the 1.8T quattro cars too.

by far the hardest part is the adapter plate and engine mounts. the rest of it is stuff thats been done by people quite a bit (stand alone engine management, etc etc), and there are plenty of resources available for that.

Good luck!

That car def needs some work. Id like to see you follow through with that motor swap, things like that dont come along that often. Looks like youve already done some research though.

Indeed most attempted motor swaps into this platform FAIL!

VR6 and 2.7T are the only real successful swaps I can think of.

These are the dimensions for the Saab half of the plate. I don't have any Audi dimensions, yet. Should be able to get those next weekend...

Seriously, give kennedy engineering a call. This is what they do. Nuff said.

Well that certainly sucks. About 5 years ago they were all about onesy twosy things. Now it looks like there trying to be "big business".

Well, good luck!
