My SCU offseason upgrades

Recommended Posts

Well as many of you know I purchased this car recently off the board, and been having fun with it so far.  First trip out car would not run, popping like crazy and found out the foam in the fuel cell deteriorated which ended up killing my bosch 044 pump trying to keep up with a clogged filter. Figured ok might as well upgrade incase I want more HP in the future. I decided to have sand rail fabricators Jose do the work while I am out of town during the week for work. (Not a great experience, thats a long story for later.) I ended up having a metal fuel tank made with an aeromotive 1000, pre and post 100/10 micron filters, battery kill switch, new howe power steering pump, etc etc. 

Second trip out my rear coil snaps in half and the car was riding super soft in the front. Found out later they were literally dry from nitrogen. I'm thinking the prep process from the powdercoater was a little to rough and pitted the coil which caused it to fatigue and snap in the long run. Ended up getting new coils from KING and my buddy take a look at the shocks. Valving was real strange and the piston nuts in the bypasses were wrong.

Other than small stuff like that car runs great.

Oh and my father in law is letting me use his OG glamis garage with unlimited coors light on tap

 

Summer upgrades include

- Alper Motorsports 440 stroker motor

- Walker Evans wheels (powder-coated black with white beadlock ring to match car)

- 10.75x15 STU razor blasters

- Chromoly CV cages/ and send everything over to cryoheat

cool car!

you'll like those new front tires... smoother ride and look so much better.  And more power with the 440 is always fun.

Motor came out easy. One of the tabs on the removable rear cage was broke off and only held by the bolt. Other than that everything seems ok.

This is what I want to do. I have some time on offseason so I should be able to take care of it. What kind of clutch setup are you guys running. What makes these s4's last besides being easy on the foot??
