Headers

Worked on my Audi V8 headers for my 924 I still need two 3 to 2.5 reducers. they are just primed right now to keep some of the elements off the metal. They turned out pretty nice for mocking up on the car and then finishing off in my driveway. I used a header kit from Summit, then sliced the flanges off the stock A8 manifolds. They are not prefect. But will certainly do the job I need them to do.

Update

I was able to do a little bit of work on my 924. I have the steering wheel and column set where I want. It will be electronically controlled for adjustment. Also gave my 924 a bit of a clean up after 5 years. Removed the 4 fog lights I had mounted to the bumper as well. going with a different idea for them. I will be Welding in brackets tomorrow to hard mount the steering column in place then I can work on the Brake and Clutch pedal.

Update

Made some good progress on my 924 V8 swap today. Pedal placement is set with some temp brackets, Grafted the 924 and A8 steering rods together and was able to mount the A8 steering column in with bolts. I still need to make the bracket supports and weld everything in.

Used a Power probe ad sent the steering column all the way in. has about 3.5 inches or so of travel.

Last update for now

Made a bit more progress on my 924 Audi V8. Pedal box is tacked in place, and steering column is tacked in place. Very happy with the placement and location. I am out of time for this period, I will be back in around 12 days to continue working on her. Just have to head back to Edwards AFB to finish off the rest of my Separation from active duty.
