I guess i can just change this thread into a project thread
So yeah, i pickup up this car in Sweden (I live in Norway)
Its very little rust on the car, so even tho its an "Swedish 5E?"
I guess its still an 5E even tho it got the swedish WE engine right?
I think its an good car to build on.
The car got typ44 seats in the front, the door sides, carpet and rear seats is not in good condition either.
The dash has cracks, but i got an crack free one with the car that i will be swapping in.
Not sure what i will do with the interior yet, i guess finding a set of good condition green C2 seats may be hard.
So i may be swapping in some newer interior with doorcards and all from an TYP44, C4 or something.
Need to take some measurements and look into it.
The driver side door is in bad condition, but i got an spare in the same color.
Time will show what i end up doing with the car, but right now i need to get it registered in Norway before i do to much on it.
The engine runs fine, no noices etc .
Just the "problem" that i feel it is really lazy. Feels like when you put your foot down it just uses 50% of the pedal.
Need to look into it with the vacum and all.
Looked at the plugs today, seems alright color wise, maybe a tad white.
Also im not sure what plugs this car should have, it is currently NGK BP6ET
I took the distributor cap off and cleaned of the points, seems to may have helped a tiny bit, but that may just be my mind playing tricks.
The most annoying problem is that when the engine is cold it does not like to start up at all, need to have the starter run for 5-6sec before it fires and then it idles badly for the next 30 before it runs okey.
Also when driving with steady pedal is jerks alittle even tho the engine sounds like its running smooth.
Im not familiar with these engines at all so i need to read up on it and see if i can find out anything
Or get some help with people who are familiar with the Audi straight 5 engines.
The vacum part alone is a source for alot of problems from what i understand.
Anyways im thrilled to start working on the car, i guess a paint job will need to happen sometime in the future.
Along with some wider wheels. So far i have started working on the wheelhousings using some black anti rust gue.
Also think that it looks better with black wheel housings instead of white.
