S-Cargo: 1995 UrS6 Avant

Postby benznotmercedes » Wed Apr 10, 2019 1:16 pm

What's up TPP, I have been lurking here since I bought my sedan about 2 years ago but never made a thread. It was a black/ecru 1995 S6 with 270k+ miles and a ton of rust issues. Brought it back from this:

To this, along with a ghetto Volvo turbo setup but then sold it to buy the next car.

Now for the Avant. My buddy Nick (I don't think he's on this forum) has owned this Avant for about 5 years. Last winter he mentioned he might be ready to sell it. We agreed on a price and I put the sedan up for sale for the sole purpose of buying the Avant. I was shocked, but my sedan sold in less than 24 hours. After a month or so I was able to pick the Avant up. It's not perfect by any means but a lot less ratty than my sedan was. Here is a semi comprehensive list of mods:

Engine:
- VEMS PnP, EFI Express tune
- DEKA 630cc injectors
- Aquamist water/meth
- EFR 6258 turbo
- 034 7A turbo manifold
- Custom downpipe with narrow and wideband O2 sensors
- 7a cams
- Phenolic IM spacer
- Fuel pump relay from 034
- Stromung 3" exhaust

Driveline/suspension:
- 6sp swapped
- Fidanza lighweight flywheel
- Spec clutch kit
- AK Motorsport snub mount
- Bilstein HD struts
- H&R springs
- AK Motorsport subframe bushings
- 17z calipers, A8 rotors

Body/Interior
- Black interior swapped
- Carbon trim
- Euro headlights and taillights


As you can see it's had quite a bit done to it and I'm beyond stoked to be its next owner. Needs some cosmetic attention and small things fixed. Speedo was intermittent when I got it, turned out to be a bad vehicle speed sensor. Chasing a misfire mostly at idle and some surging at low/part throttle. Honestly I am a total noob to VEMS and have no idea what I'm doing, but was wondering if that could be an issue with the tune. Never had a water/meth system in a car either so I have a lot to learn. Has anyone had experience with this? Car is currently on a base 6258 tune from EFI but no idea if the water/meth or climate down here in Georgia means it needs to be tweaked again.

Plans:
- Euro bumpers or repair existing
- Address the tune/driveability issues
- Coilovers
- Wheels
- Serious detail

Fixed so far:
- Hatch not opening (had to remove rear wiper and motor to access mechanism)
- Speed sensor
- Coolant reservoir going in this weekend

To make a long story short, on to the pics!!

Installed the FK badgeless grille I had in storage.

Gave the interior some love. This photo is of what was extracted from only the driver's side floor mat. The PO was a big mountain biker so while the interior was in good shape, it was just very dirty.

Results.
