I thought you got rid of this thing. Glad you're still going at it.

That is a very good looking car. Certainly the best looking 850 I can remember seeing.

Looks great. I just picked up a 96 850R as a new daily driver. Of course it won't stay stock.

I highly recommend Aaron and his tuning. He uses Tuner Pro RT with ME 4.4 (can work in 4.3 cars with no issues) ECUs that he has adapted to datalog a really wide range of parameters and then flash via OBD II using a VAG com cable.



I'm an idiot when it comes to this kind of stuff and I'm having no problems data logging, sending him the files, then re-flashing new tunes. His pricing is competitive with shelf tuners, and you get a custom tune and the ability to switch between four custom tunes at the press of your gas pedal.

Pretty sure that's what Falcone has for tuning too.

Tightmopedman9 , same as on VS. I am assuming he mostly lurks here so a PM on VS would be better to get a hold of him.

Yes, if you know Motronic/coding and programming you can do the tuning all yourself.

Updates:

New wheels, fits the car really well. They are OZ formula HLT. They are only 17x7.5 so needed MST custom 10mm spacers for the BBK. Also found out the wheels have super tight clearance for the lug bolt head taper (extended from H&R), so they had to be machined down to fit.

Aside from the headliner getting replaced, grey carbon vinyl wrap on the roof, and a repaint on the trunk, I'm done with anymore cosmetics.





Car made ~ 300 whp and 310 tq with the K24. There was some tuning issues that got resolved (dip seen in the log and dyno) after more street tuning. Car with the K24 probably had around 310 whp/330 tq before moving on ...




Decided on a final turbo and injectors for the car to be "done" and went with a 20G and DW 800cc ev-14 injectors. 8cm exhaust housing and internal WG. Did upgrade to the billet extended tip wheel to reduce surge.



More to come soon ...

So as the K24 made ~ 300 whp/320 tq I want another 100 whp.


Some progress with the 20G.

Splitter got a fresh coat of chip guard, trunk got resprayed, and headliner has been replaced.


Some engine pics.

I would, but everywhere I look I can't seem to find him .

I'll polish the head by hand most likely, and paint the cover. It is dirty... sorry!

Engine is now running right after a few logs, some vacuum leaks fixed, valve cover is painted, new rail cover as the rail mounting had to be tweaked for the new injectors. Switching to a 180 degree tstat for some added knock protecting.

I am now running a Sachs 707 PP and a Southbend six puck clutch. Way stiffer than the stock R stuff and 1st is a bit a hard getting used to but I can see the advantages in the higher gears.

Got the ok from Aaron to do some WOT logs which I might be able to get to this week.

"Final" bay pic as it will stand.

Your coolant overflow bottle seems really full. Is it just the picture or is it too full ? Not trying to nitpick, but blowing a radiator because of excessive pressure in the system sucks.

It just needs to burp, a bit of air trapped still as it was just changed.

Taking it to cars and coffee tomorrow.

Also, first real pull with the safe base tune.

Steering wheel and fire extinguisher mounted.





Also had paintless dent repair.

It was $400, but all six panels look like glass. I was not expecting how well it was done. 23 years of dents and dings gone.

Now hurry up and park it inside. You have the only remaining dash/airbag cover that's not warped.
