Project two: Audi S2 Coupe

Audi S2 3B ’91

Time to present my second project – The ’91 Audi S2 Coupe!

This car has been a long time dream for me. It has a very nice chassis and the perfect engine; Audis inline 5 turbo engine! I’m not sure whether any other engine sounds as good as the inline 5, 2.2 turbo engine fitted to the S2 (among other Audis of the same time period).

The car needs a lot of work. All the interior is stripped, the engine needs a good service and the exhaust has seen better days… The exterior is actually quite good, no surface rust, but it needs a good buffing to make it shine. It is mostly original, but it did come with an RS2 front bumper.

What I’ve done so far:

  • Fit an upgraded heater matrix along with the climate controls
  • Refit the interior
  • Change engine fluids and the serpentine belt as well as the fan belt
  • Oil change on transmission and rear differential
  • Get the car registered with the Norwegian DMV
  • Upgraded suspension to KW v1 coilovers
  • Poly bushings all over incl. rear differential
  • Whiteline RARB
  • Steel head gasket
  • New water pump
  • New stock oil cooler
  • New brake accumulator
  • New clutch master and slave sylinders
  • New generator voltage regulator
  • New MFTS
  • Redone the PCV system and relocated the pancake valve
  • Upgraded the diverter valve (034 motorsport)
  • New silicon pressure and cooling hoses
  • Changed all engine-bay vacuum hoses
  • New brake hoses all around
  • Changed fuel filter
  • New custom 3″ exhaust incl. cat
