This is my first time ever "building" a car and have learned a lot and still have a lot left to learn but I figured I'd finally start my build thread after finally introducing myself a few months back and because the build is getting close to being finished... for now. I'm only 18 and go to school full time and work full time so it definitely is a college budget build, but it is everything I wanted and tried to not cheap out on any bits and pieces. I drive a 2000 A4 1.8T Avant and have owned it for about a year, but have been around the car for 6 or 7 years due to my co worker owning it haha. So here it is everyone

Engine:
Integrated Engineering Tuscan rods 144mm x 20mm
Wiseco pistons 9:1 CR, bore still to be determined
Stock crank and stock head for now

Turbo:
GT2871r from an APR stg3+ kit (used from a fellow AZer)
APR inconel exhaust manifold (used from a fellow AZer)
Custom 3" downpipe by AR
Full 3" exhaust from 034 motorsport
Treadstone intercooler core from Seerlah's thread
Custom intercooler piping by 3zero3 motorsports

Ecu:
Raceline wiring Wideband conversion kit
2001 ecu with unitronic 630cc mafless tune (used)
Siemens 630cc injectors (Used)

Clutch:
Clutch Masters FX400
Light weight flywheel

Miscelenious:
034 Motorsport engine mounts
AWE Drive Train Stabalizer
Podi boost gauge
AEM wideband A/F gauge in center vent
APR diverter valve

Wheels:
BBS LM replicas 18x8 with 245/40 tires

That is the main parts list for now, don't think I left anything out but there is still more to come before everything is set and done. This is not the final set up either, there is much more to come like maestro and hopefully E85 in the near future, just want to get the car up and running finally and have some damn power. Suspension and brakes will come in the next few months once I can start working more over summer break.

Many more pictures to come once more parts start showing up and the deconstruction begins in the next week or so, should be complete in less than 3 weeks and on the road so not too far away[:D]
If you have any questions or advice for me go right ahead, I want to know/learn as much as I can am overly excited this is finally happening! Videos will come once everything is broken in and a video of the first start up as well, it should all be some high quality stuff too.

Thanks man, it's definitely nothing too unique or big but exactly what I wanted and took me about a year to get all the parts together and now it's finally all starting.

I'm pretty sure I'm using 2.5 inch piping for all the intercooler piping but don't have any of it with me, as far as costs I'm not quite sure but will know in a couple of weeks and post it up for you along with the piping size. It's a really nice core for the price I got it for in the group buy.

2.5" would be a bit big for just a k04 so I would just say the pipe I have wouldn't be ideal for you. There aren't any kits out for the treadstone intercooler yet, but I'm pretty sure the shop fabbing my piping is going to develop a kit for the treadstone. Just don't know when.


Nice, In the middle of the same with my avant..

Are you doing any internal work or just the eliminator and supporting mods?

Don't we all[:D] There's a lot more to come too!


I would use 2" pipes unless you just want 2.5" pipes

I'm not done with the parts list, so I'm getting the 2.5" because I plan on running E85 fuel and maestro with more boost down the road so 2.5 is mainly for the future of my build.


mmmm, avants!! Looks like a good build, any plans for suspension.

Looking at the Koni/stasis street coilover set up in the next few months with a boxster s brake kit since I can get those discounted at my work[;)] Just finishing the engine before I try and start anymore projects on my car... priorities haha

Use 2.25" hot side and 2.5" cold side piping for the GT2871R. For the k04, use 2" hot side and 2.25 or 2.5" cold side. I need to install my intercooler too. I had plans for it, but the money I was going to use for the custom install went to something else. Now I don't have the funds for it. Just sitting in my garage.

Damn that is quite a similar build other than being an eliminator, what happened to your old b5 that your getting all your parts from?

Thanks Mitch, I'm talking to 3zero3 Monday hopefully about the intercooler pipe set up so I'll get them to do the 2.25" hot side and 2.5" cold side, I'll be sure to send you a few pictures when it gets installed here in the next week or 2 hopefully.

rs4 Grille doesn't have chrome trim on the out side, its painted silver
I actually have 2 RS4 grilles [:D] sounds like you need one...
and I would platidip the outside trim if you wanted it black just in case you dont like it you can always remove the dip.(dont think iv seen it like that on a silver car..might look good. add a little contrast, I like the way it looks on the black and when I had my old b5 with the carbon fiber)

Yea I actually have some black plasti dip sitting in my garage at the moment, I just want to see what it looks like with the trim being black on a silver car. Some day I might get myself a carbon fiber hood but I would paint that silver to match the car anyways. But are you looking to sell your spare rs4 grille?

Looks like you have a pretty solid parts list. Looking forward to pics and such. Good luck!

If you're interested, I'd highly recommend picking up one of these intake manifold spacers. You wouldn't necessarily NEED it, but I noticed a night and day difference in temps and my manifold stays cold to the touch.

Thanks man, I'll definitely pick that up here in the next few weeks and install it after I run my car once it done a few times so I can get a before and after with the spacer. I'm surprised I've never really seen this on their website since I buy quite a few parts from them. I'm waiting for 034's intake manifold to come out this summer finally! Haha

They rubbed like hell in the back before I got my 5mm spacers for the rear, now they don't rub at all but I have a set 235 and 225 tires so I'm going to see which ones I like best once I get some free time. The 245 tires just look massive in person, but I kind of like it haha

Along with many motor builds, mine has slowed down a tiny bit.... but the wait is worth it due to changes I have made with the set up, rather than just doing rods and pistons and putting it back together. I figured might as well stroke it since it will all be apart, I just ordered my race spec 2.0 stroker kit from integrated engineering. Hopefully that arrives nice and soon, and its for an 06a block? I was checking craigslist and a local member NYNOAH put his 06a block and head up for sale for a steal, I had to buy it, so now I'm doing a full 06a swap rather than just an 01 ecu and wideband. So much better! Everything else is staying the same for now but I kind of want to sell my turbo set up for something else(bigger). Thinking EFR with top mount manifold but who knows. Any who the stroker kit is on its way to my place and the spare block and head are sitting in my trunk, just got to take it out and start disassembly. Then its off to the machine shop, hopefully in 2 weeks or less. Here are some pics of the 06a.

As some of you know, NYNOAH hit a rock and ripped off his AC and took the mounts with it, I didn't want AC anyways so it is alright, I'll get better pics soon once it is all apart.

Yea I've gone over it a few times lately and that's the only thing that made sense to me in the end, pulling the engine in my garage once I get some space to work and having a coworker help me assemble the bottom end once its out of the machine shop and I have some time for one then it'll be going in and probably headed to you guys for intercooler pipe fabbing, 12 days straight waking up at 6 and working/class for atleast 8 hours each day so hopefully I can start working on the car soon!

That's my plan except built head for now, I'm glad I didn't just do rods and pistons like I was going to originally. Plus I'm glad I found a spare engine and am using an 06a. I don't know much about EFR turbos tho.

I'm not sure yet but all the oil and coolant lines, apr manifold and the stg3+ turbo I guess, along with the custom downpipe and the intake piping(not all of it haha) and the hot side intercooler pipe if anyone wants it. I guess could sell the the intercooler too, 1800 Obo and the person can take certain parts if they choose.

Help!!!! So today I started dis assembly on my spare block I just picked up from a member nynoah, well when I took off the head I wasn't expecting this. Anybody have any ideas? I talked to a few coworkers and showed them the pictures and it doesn't sound good, one was saying most likely a cracked head or block/ head gasket was bad. But here's the thing, the block was pulled after the A/C got ripped off by a rock and ripped the mounts as well and maybe this has something to do with it. But the block was complete and sitting sideways on a stand for I don't know how long when I picked it up, maybe just water got into the block? I'm worried right now and am going to call nynoah and ask if he knows anything about this, any help is appreciated. I plan on the machine shop doing a stress test on the block if everything is looking better, my strocker kit gets here Thursday so I hope this doesn't hold anything back.

Hey everyone. I had no clue that the engine was like this. It ran when I took it out but water must have gotten in the block when the hood was off. I put rags in the runner holes, but it must have got past it. I told news days that he could bring it back and get his money back. I personally don't think the rust will be too much of an issue because he will be going 3mm over in order to punch it out to 2.0. But I leave the decision up to him. Again, I had no clue it was like this.

Sorry if I made it sound like I was calling you out haha, but I looked a bit further into it and on the cylinders where the valves were slightly open when I took the head off seem to be the most rusty cylinders so I think it has to do with water seeping in through the runners. I was just posting this for answers and put noah's name in since it would tell the story of this engine since many of you may know it. Wasn't trying to mean anything negative bad man lol

I'll post up pics later from my pc of how I removed the crank bolt. Also don't go by the specs provided by JE for the piston to cylinder wall clearance. You will get piston slap. If you search the B6 section they found out the proper clearance specs. They all found out the hard way and posted correct specs from trial and error so people don't make the same mistake. The JE specs provided will make the engine run like poop.

Edit: Here you go. Basically wedge a concoction against a water pump that was going to be trashed anyways. Whip up something else with the same principle when placing back on. Wet0willy01 made something better. His pic is second.

Also, if you already have your motor out, you can just drop the pan and shove a 2x4 between the block and the crank to get that bolt loose.

Can't find the thread that had a post with every last spec for the JE pistons to run, but multiple posts say the same thing. They are saying run .003" and not the JE spec of .004" for the piston to wall clearance. But here is an example of just one thread. But I came across a post before where someone posted every last correct spec to run. I think the wall to piston clearance may be the only spec that is off. I would really take my time to research this stuff though before proceeding with your build (ie ask with a new thread in the B6 A4 section). Can be a costly goof.

Stock bore is 81mm. Not sure on exact measurements. When you bring the block to the machine shop to do the work, you want to also bring all your rotating assembly. And with the JE pistons, I already told you about the piston to cylinder wall clearance. You will also need a torque plate for when they bore the cylinders. Then I highly suggest balancing the rotating assembly. Hot tank and and deck. And maybe even request them to dowel pin the crank and crank gear for you. It's just better to spend the money and do it all in one shot. Strip the block completely before bringing it to them. Are they going to assemble it for you or are you going to do that?

Is the torque plate that necessary? And is there anywhere I can borrow one rather then spending that kind of money on something ill use once. Yea I'm buying the rest of the rotating assembly in the next week to 2 weeks. I'm wanting to assemble it myself with a buddy I know. One of my coworkers has a very clean stage 3 nogaro s4.

Yes, it is that important. When you bolt the head to the block, the block flexes. The torque plate simulates having a cylinder head bolted and torqued down, so when the machinist bores the cylinders they will be straight and true.

$60 for 30 day rental: http://www.vapmotorsports.com/123-integrated-engineering-18t-20v-torque-plate.html

The 1.8t when properly built can handle high HP no problem. I went with Calico bearings for my build that I purchased of Integrated. I also went with APR main studs. I also had my pistons coated on both the domes and the side skirts. I personally feel that the pistons should always be coated at a min on the side skirts. That is how the factory pistons came too. If you are not going to use the hydraulic cam tensioner from the AWM head, let me know. Mine just went bad and I sold my spare with that motor.

With the head you start off with upgraded springs and upgraded exhaust valves. After that, upgraded cams can be done with the head still attached to the block. So, you don't need to do it all at once. The upgraded springs let's you rev higher, while the upgraded valves basically ensures that you don't drop one after having one disintegrate or have the head fall off (just happened to kneel from the B6 section and his motor is now toast). Then the upgraded cams assist in drawing in more air (intake cam) and is necessary to make power in the higher RPMs.

That's what I'm trying to do here, I have been on a huge budget lately with all of my daily life and putting most of my pay towards parts. Selling my apr set up helped tho, sad I never got to try out that turbo. Are Intake valves need for not very high rpm's?

Seerlah
06-09-2013, 06:29 PM
The valve upgrade does not have to do with rpm. The springs do. The stock valves are known to come apart under high heat applications. More hotter combustion with more air and fuel is what creates this. With more air, a larger turbo charger is what grants this. This is why people suggest upgraded valves after a certain point. It is the exhaust vales that are the issue due to them being sodium filled and not solid. The stock intake valves on the other hand are just fine.

Flying back with the parts TSA stopped me at the X-Ray part and searched my bag and inspected the fuel pump which I thought was pretty damn funny. My Skid plate arrived and that's going on this Saturday. Also ordered some parts from Integrted for 10% off and got the adjustable cam gear and bolt, street cam set on pre order, crank bolt, fluidampr, sai block off, lightweight alternator pulley under drive, light weight power steering pulley, fuel rail, rear diff mount, head bolts, and main studs.

Haha but I picked up a set of the trm mt1 wheels, the ones I talked about at 034, for pretty cheap. Here's a link to them with the price per wheel too. 17x8 and they weigh only 18lbs, that should save a lot of weight compared to my current wheels. http://i247.photobucket.com/albums/gg133/davidcfranks/TRM_MT1_LightGrey_100.jpg

All I have left to really get is my full race manifold and the IE intake when it comes out along with my intercooler, should be getting ready to start putting things together in the next month or so!

Time to change your sig? thnj3 is also selling a full race mani and full race downpipe. He ran a Comp Turbo, so his entire setup (minus) turbo may bolt right up. Save some money instead of buying brand new. He has an ASP dual B5 S4 exhaust custom fitted for it too.

I need to update a lot of my stuff, been off audizine for a few months and just coming on here and there but I'm back. I'll buy the mani from thnj3 tho, does he have the waste gate set up too (already have the downpipe tho, well atleast it arrives Friday).

He is parting out his whole car. I am buying his transmission from him.

Just sent him a decent list of parts I'm interested in, but no reply yet hopefully tomorrow tho. If I get them all it will definitely help complete my build on budget

Update: ended up buying the ultimate girdle kit from IE, blocks at the machine shop now and should be down in 2 to 3 weeks. Putting the cams in the head in the next week or 2 once I get the adjustable exhaust cam gear from IE. Going with the stage IIc standalone from 034 and should arrive in 2 weeks or so along with my exhaust manifold and other small things. Ordering all the little bolts I need from ARP on Monday and should be done shopping once those are ordered other than the things I need to finish the fuel setup(I'll worry about that when the pump is going in the car unless someone here wants to work me through it). My coworker who is a Porsche tech is going to help me put the block together alongside with getting it in the car(my dad will help as well and my other coworker will help install the standalone with me hopefully). All in all it's going to come together quite fast in the next month or so and I just have to pass emissions this week or next before the engine is pulled and standalone starts going in. Pretty damn excited and just praying everything goes smoothly and nobody flakes on me when it comes to putting things together. Here's a pic of the current garage set up just because it makes me happy hahahttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/04/13/e2yrapuj.jpg

Started cleaning the head at the end of work today, putting the cams in tomorrow or sometime this week and checking valve clearance and looking at the seats and valves. Anybody have any tips or things to look out for in particular? Or what the valve clearance is hot vs cold? I have the block back from the machine shop so once the heads done it's time for the bottom end. Super tech stock size intake and exhaust valves with super tech springs and ie street cams.

You are going to want to get some valve lapping compound and lightly lap the valve into the seat. Take the valve out and wipe off the valve and the seat. Make sure there is a perfect circle mark on the seat and the valve. If not theb it means your seat is a little warped. You could keep lapping it until it turns into a perfect ring or get a valve job done.
Especially check tge exhaust ones as they are more prone to warping due to the heat

Sounds good, I figured we were going to lap them but just look at them first and decide from there.
