I cut the metal crimp off and replaced with a piece of hose and 2 clamps.

but the hose is a reducer. Did you use straight hose?

Finally we slapped the engine back in and took it for a drive but not before replacing the rear anti roll bar drop links.

The result of all this effort? The engine starts easily now and goes straight to fast idle then settles down to a smooth 850 rpm. No popping and bucking anymore and it pulls a lot smoother too.

Looks great! I know it's too late, but for the hose pictured above I put a double layer of heat shrink over mine. Mine hadn't failed though, just showed some small surface imperfections. Got the heat shrink tip from someone on this board.

Did you actually refurb the air meter flapper? My car will surge a bit when going from 0% to 5% throttle but is great everywhere else, which seems like the correct symptom for the flapper.

Are you referring to the hose that was split? That was repaired with heat shrink.

I replaced my flapper with a refurbed unit. Munks have the old for assement and possible refurb but all is smooth now.

We are pleased to report that the Carrera RX is now running very well indeed and we have been enjoying the car a lot visiting several cars and coffee events including an impromtu dash 200 miles up north to vist our 83 UR Quattro build at Cherry Classic Cars after our van blew a turbo hose.

We also attended the Woodward Dream Cruise and the Detroit Car week with the car.

Meantime we fabbed up a gauge pod to house the AFR gauge connected to the wide band o2 sensor we had installed while the engine was out.

This week we are dragging the car up to Empire, Michigan where it will once again be functioning as the course opening car. Maybe see you up there?

It's been a busy few weeks for the CarreraRX. A couple of car shows, pace car duties and even a race!




First up was pace car duty at the Empire Hill Climb in Northern Michigan. Normally we get to run a few parade laps up the hill but due to time constraints caused by the number of entries fun was restricted to escorting the cars from down town to the base of the hill. This is necessary as most of the cars are not street legal but need to use public roads from staging to the start. There were plenty of interesting cars on display too:









The following weekend was our (now seemingly) once a year RallyCross event with the Detroit region SCCA. As these were only a few days apart we let the CarreraRX sleepin the trailer.




Made some new friends and got the car nice and dirty.

Last weekend's adventure was to the car show held as part of the Speed Ring festival at M1 Concourse. At just over a mile from our shop we really couldn't miss this one. The event was primarily a Time Attack weekend but we did come away with two awards for looking pretty while stationary.




The car is resting for a couple of weeks in preparation for posing about at the Lake Superior Performance Rally (LSPR) in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where it will get to meet non-other then Hannu Mikola! Should be fun.

Why just 'posing about' at the rally? No class for the car? That'd be a shame and difficult to be there with such a fun car and not be able to run her.

Sorry, which event are you referring to? We didn't go to a rally. Went to a hill climb but the car would need a bit too much work to be legal for that plus we used to get to drive up the hill at ~90% which was plenty. Did not know that would not be possible this time.

We probably could have run the time attack but it was a two day event and we have a lot on our plate right now. Even the show as a stretch.

We did run the RallyCross though

RALLY LEGEND MEETS RALLY LEGEND


image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr

No, the guy on the left met the CarreraRX.



Last weekend we made our annual pilgrimage to the Lake Superior Performance Rally to hang out with our Group B rally car mates only this year there was a special treat laid on my the Guys from Dirtfish Rally School in the form of one Hannu Mikkola. Hannu was one of the first works Audi Quattro drivers and a true motorsport legend. Dirtfish also brought with them a replica of the MK2 Escort Hannu drove in Europe and a pristine Audi Sport Quattro. Hannu drove the Audi with us on Thursday up and back down the Keweenaw Peninsula then drove the Escort during shakedow, a couple of stages as course opener and then, again with us in the super special last stage in downtown Houghton.

There is a Flickr album documenting this occasion here but here are a few appetizers:
