i got to pick up my new pressure plate bolts on wed and yesterday after work i got everything centered up (it was a pain to get it centered and hold it there in place) and used a couple of the old bolts to get it started and hold it while i put blue loc tight on the new bolts and screw them down. i got all the new bolts snugged up and torqued them to spec. (sorry for the crappy cell pic) now she sits and waits til i find all the bolts needed to mount the engine to the bell housing



gosh i wish i wasnt a dumb@$$ and leave most of the nuts and bolts in a pile and some others scattered around :BangHead:

Jesse stopped by to help get the engine back in and get it bolted up but i called it a day since we couldnt line up the block to the bell housing perfectly to bolt it together and didnt want to get more frusturated then i was at the time. i still need to figure out my bell housing bolts.

not much happend since my last post. i spent some time trying to figure out what i was hanging up on and posted about my issue on QW. one thing was to double check to see if i had the right pressure plate maybe its the wrong size and hitting againt the bell housing. i took the motor back out and held up my old PP next to the new one and eye balled it and they look to be the same thickness. so thats not the issue. one member suggested to take the clutch slave cylinder out and put the motor back in to see it'll sit against the bell housing. i've been to lazy to get the motor back in.

ok its time for an update on the old girl. early last i bought a used T04E/k26 turbo from a member on the QW boards and i did meet him in our caravan to S-Fest. When he bought the car it had a unknown turbo because it had no numbers on it and he posted about it on QW and the figured out that it was a T04E/k26 turbo. after S-Fest his motor crapped out on him and he upgraded everything and went with a bigger turbo. he took the turbo off the car and took it apart to find any marking on it to find more info about it. when he took it apart he accidently broke the stud on the coldside wheel.

he posted it for sale and i saw that it was for sale as is or he was going to rebuild it and sell it at a higher price. i emailed him asking that i wanted to buy it as is. so he sold it to me. i was going to get it rebuilt with billet wheels to cut down on the turbo lag. i got the turbo and decided to wait on getting it rebuilt.


i took this pic after i got the RS2 (on the right) turbo pulled off the avant.

i've been saving up my money the last few months and also got my tax return back i decided to send out the t04e/k26 turbo to get rebuilt. Marc got my turbo and said he didnt like dealing with the customer service of Comp Turbo and said he had a gt3071r chra he could sell me. so i went ahead and bought it.

while i was waiting for the turbo. i bought a new EM. i ended up buying the 034 H.O. RS2 EM with a T3 flange so if i decide to upgrade to a bigger turbo i wont be limited on what i can buy. since i bought that EM. i had Marc find me a T3 turbo housing so it can be bolted up the new EM. also i sent out my DP to get remodified to be a full 3" DP. the hotside housing that Marc recieved wasnt the right size he needed so he had to get the right one which ended up having a v-band and upgraded the DP to accept the v-band from the turbo housing.

last year i sent out my RS2 turbo to get built and Marc sent it out to get it rebuilt and the rebuilder found out that the turbo started to rub against the housing. i had the turbo rebuilt anyways because it would've been extreamly hard to find replacement parts. the turbo had over 230,000 miles on it. when i upgraded my chip set it must have put strain on the high milage turbo and must have caused it to start rubbing on the housing.

i got the turbo back i was going to use that turbo for awhile until i could afford to rebuild the T04E/k26 turbo. since i got that turbo rebuilt als. i ended up selling my RS2 turbo and RS2 EM. i'll be using that money towards buying the 034 Rip Chip (reprogramable) that became available! click here to learn more about this amazing chip upgrade!

Time for a long over due update on my project. i have thoughts about giving up on this project but Jim said he would help finish it for me late last year. A couple of months ago he came up and picked up my avant to take it to his house.


she's on her way to get finished.


the GT3071R turbo got installed.


shortly after i got my tax return money i bought the 034 Rip Chip




i recently bought a new oil cooler and hardware to replace the stock oil cooler


i also bought a oil cooler to replace the stock power steering cooler line. also bought some new coolant hoses


parts from 034. oil catch can, relay harness for ignition coils, fuel pressure gauge and adjustable fuel pressure regulator, n75 valve, diverter valve and oil pressure switch

there are more parts that i need to buy.

Re: My 95.5 UrS6 Avant *back home*

Update time. Shorty after Jim picked up my avant he had to stop working on my avant because I ran out of money for this project so it sat at his place until it was time for him to bring it back home. A lot has happend while my avant has been away. I got married and I bought my very first house which has a nice size detached garage. I sold the RIP Chip and the 928 GTS calpiers and took some stuff off my avant that is currently on my UrS4.

My avant finally came back home (gone for 21 months) and will sit in my garage for awhile until I can afford to buy what I need to buy to finish it. For the time being there is some things I can work on that Jim didnt do because I ran out of money for him to any more work then what he's got into it. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic.
