EPS Motorsport Audi S1 V8

Hi All
I have been building this S1 Project for some time now and I thought you might like to follow its progress. I come to England in 2000 and my first customer I went to see was Keith Murray from Dialynx Performance. Then after him letting me have a drive of his 700hp hill climb car I was hooked! I had to have my own.

So I wanted to build some thing fast!! So itís going to be an Audi S1 with a V8 twin turbo.

If you know the car please don't post any pics as I want to show you why it has taken 7 years to make LOL

Fitting the engine was easy when there is nothing to get in the way!

Dampers are 150mm travel connected via bell cranks with needle rollers for less resistance. Once through the bell cranks it makes for 100mm wheel travel and 150mm shock travel.

The diff is made to slip out the side of the chassis by removing the rear mount if it ever breaks LOL

Some thing to crunch the gears with!! I had to change this to allow the gate to work correctly. It allows the reverse gear to be locked out also. Had to change the cables to suit the new position in the car also had to change the connections on the gear box to allow the fitment of the cables also. Looks good and I hope it works okay?

Brakes are all Brembo units 4 piston all round as I wanted to have big units on the rear as 4wd car can use this to help the total braking force of the car! Rear rotors are 305mm and the front are 355mm units all to go over 16 inch wheels. Just because thatís the most common size for Avon Slicks

Panels next! Going to use carbon Kevlar and some glass fibre also. What a messy job but Keith was happy to help me out making these down at his place.

Inlet manifold is a work of art! as it was made by Dacar Motorsport in Brazil. The two halfs are made from a solid block of Alloy.

Inside the manifold it also has ram tubes for the inlet runners, two injectors per cyl and it also uses a 85mm Drive By Wire Throttle also

New fuel rails being made! As I stock these in 1 meter lengths I also have the profile drill for the two injector sizes 14mm and 11mm

Ends are going to be -8 inlets and -6 returns

I also have an injector flow tester and cleaner from ASNU so all injectors where cleaned before fitting into the manifold. Injectors are going to be 1000cc each so 2000cc per cyl
