are you installing a Mitsubishi motor in the S4 now?
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: Cole on May 11, 2006, 06:49:27 AM
Probably be more reliable, but no.


Same color scheme as this. Does this look Mitsubishi to you?

yep. looks like the new evo rs4.  by the way i was just kidding at the mitsu. my last mitsu had the red valve cover.

what other issues have you had with the S4 since the blown turbo?
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: Cole on May 11, 2006, 07:39:30 AM
Issues "Since" the blown turbo? First blown turbo or second? None since the second, car has been in the shop since it happened waiting on parts.


Total issues with the car......?

-Blown K03
-Blown K04(9,500 miles later, other turbo, faulty part)
-Valve cover craked and leaks bad...new valve covers PC red;-)
-Oil cooler leak
-Blown intercooler hoses.
-Torn TBB
-Bad TC Seal(took 4 months to fix cause L10 never replaced the seal like they were supposed to)
-2 bad MAFs
-Bad battery
-Bad alternator
-Bad tie rods
-Bad wheel bearings
-bad shocks
-blown power steering hose
-bad water pump(replaced twice)
-3 bad Audi wheels that would not hold air
-bad bad brakes (frozen caliper, Very squeky disks)
-bad display
-hole in radiator, had to replace
-Seat rocks, still need to fix
-Broken windshield (dogs head)
-Bad steering rack.
-Broken timing covers
-Bad tensioner
-Bad busings in control arms.
-broken motor mounts


I also replaced the TB and all pullies, piggie pipes, BPS etc.

I'm sure there is something else I am missing. I have only put about 20,000 miles on the car in 2 years.  8O We are trying to fix EVERYTHING that could go wrong with it at this point. (and add a little fun at the same time since I HATE repair work.

wow, that is a long list of bads.....that list makes me happy I got rid of my allroad after the problems started to increase with frequency.

I really like what the new plan is though, those valve covers are nice.

What is the plan with Sonny's car?  Parts, or are you gonna make it a runner?
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: Eric18T on May 11, 2006, 08:04:18 AM
lots of bads, tat's not good. talk about alot of problems.
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: s4josh on May 11, 2006, 08:12:42 AM
That why I traded mine in and said f^&* it!  The list of things were building up that needed fixed and it only had 60k on it...

I should have waited for the 4-door GTi with the 170hp TDi though  :cry:
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: Cole on May 11, 2006, 08:17:54 AM
I really like the car. Not much else out there I want right now. If there were I would be all over it. Hopefully we get it fixed and dialed in so I don't have issues for a long while.
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: Spicoli on May 11, 2006, 08:26:04 AM
that is why I got rid of my GTI.  I loved the car, just got so sick of replacing things and dumping endless money into it.  I put about $4000 into it in 6 months to fix problems.  And that did not include the usual maintenance like oil changes or scheduled services.  When I had to replace my steering rack I think that was a major turning point.


I do miss the GTI though.
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: Cole on May 11, 2006, 08:29:43 AM
I would have replaced it by now if there was something else I liked.

What else is AWD, luxurious and 400+ HP for a decent price?
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: Spicoli on May 11, 2006, 08:41:11 AM
and that is the thing... if my car was RWD or AWD I would hav eput up with the stuff... but FWD just wasn't worth the headache... no matter how cool it looked
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: ianacole on May 11, 2006, 08:57:16 AM
Hmmmm...You'd have to drive a spike through my scrotum before I'd be willing to get rid of mine.
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: Spicoli on May 11, 2006, 12:33:07 PM
That is pretty much what my car was doing to me...


... very very slowly.



I just had a lemon... and the lemoniness didn't show up until I mod'd it heavily.  I miss having the car... but I don't miss the problems that car had.

seat rocks back and forth[/qoute]

I had mine fixed under warrenty and I asked what the actual cost was and they said $2300.  They had to replace the bottom of the seat frame.  Then they broke my seat heater, which I didn't know for about five months since I dont use them during the summer (I should have checked it).  After about five weeks with the new seat frame it started rocking again and I decided to live with it and get it fixed at some point down the road.

so you got the samco's delivered finally?  I want a copy of the poster when you are done.  this thing is going to look cool.
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: Eric18T on May 17, 2006, 11:50:02 AM
cole -  what aren't you going to replace this time around?
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: Cole on May 17, 2006, 11:51:15 AM
I have the "seat rock fix it kit" Just have not have time (or access to my car) to put it on. Cost was $15. If that does not work I have a MIG welder that I am sure will fix it :wink:


I also think it should look pretty cool. There was some talk yesterday about T-shirts. Not sure if that will happen. But I will have access to the prints if anyone wants to have some posters for their own garage.

MIG + leather I like it!! :P  I would find a friend with a TIG if your serious (no splattering).  Is it bolts or connectors under the car?

I don't want to steal cole's story, but his engine is going to be so pretty ...  new turbos, red valve covers, new multi colored samcos... that they are going to take some pics of it before it goes back in the car.  And yes, I want a print for my garage.

The engine is being prepped for a photo shoot. The pictures will be used for some wall sized displays for educational and marketing purposes. The hoses are set up to be blue on the cold air intake side, red for the hot air out of the turobs, orange for the warm air from the intercoolers. All of the vaccuum hoses on the top side of the motor will be yellow samco.This will help people visualize how the air and temperature flow runs through the turbos.  There are going to be lots of other blingy things on the motor for the photo shoot and even a "tech" GTG at 3Zero3 before the motor goes back in the car. (keep your calendar open for early June)

The rainbow parade of colors won't be very visable on the S4 when the motor is back in the car.

Post by: Eric18T on May 17, 2006, 01:39:48 PM
thats pretty cool idea cole. i may have to come check this out before it is put back in.

Are you rebuilding and re-inforcing the block while it is out?
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: Cole on May 17, 2006, 01:42:54 PM
Block should be more than solid(knocking on my desk) for the demands on it at this point.
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: jayryan on May 17, 2006, 01:49:06 PM
That's sweet. I'll definately try and make it.

That's a real cool idea.  I'd love to come out and see it before it goes back in, and I would like a print too.

Sorry for the crappy camera phone pics. I just stopped by to check on it. Still a lot of work to do. But it is coming along.

truely amazing Cole.  You have outdone yourself with your vision.  Best looking 2.7T I have ever seen, hands down.  I can only imagine the performance will match the look.  Are you going to do full on show car after all this work?

Certainly a great-looking engine.  As far as the best I've seen....well, that's a toss up.  Take a look at this photo I took at MTM three years ago:

That is a cool motor Pat.  Personally I would have been a bit more subtle on mine if it were just my project.  I love the carbon fiber y-pipe.
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: 03Indigo on June 08, 2006, 06:23:11 AM
yeah, that MTM version is sweet.  I agree with Cole, the carbon y pipe is killer.

Cole, are you replacing your Y pipe?  If so, can I have your old one?  Still looking for one, none have panned out.
Title: Re: MMMM...Teaser shot....
Post by: Cole on June 08, 2006, 07:17:52 AM
No. Still using the factory y-pipe. $900 for an RS4 one is a bit steep.
