I am sure you can sell the motor in days, and the tranny as well if your prices are reasonable. Thats as far as parting it out I would go unless there is something wrong with it.

I went to the shop to strip some parts from the old motor and also did a
test fit of the carbon fiber covers. Heres the pics

Engine bay stripped with the crossmember and the upgrades to the rack
and pinion




Greddy timing belt N1 water pump and N1 Oil pump


The fitment of the carbon fiber peices were near perfect!!!

Here are some updates on the project

Oil pan needed cutting and welding
I had a friend at work weld it up.




I also sandblasted the rocker covers and repainted them with
high heat gloss black paint. Heres pics of what they'll look like on the motor.







I will post more pictures in a few days, they will be mounting the motor in for its final resting place.

It's been a bit since I updated with more pics I've been busy getting more
parts I need (nismo transmission mount, 240 auto tranny crossmember,
magnetic drain plug, the newest hks type 1 turbo timer, GTR R32 Wheels)

They were mounting the motor for hopefully the last time ha ha ha
(words from the Techs mouth)
All the parts on the two shelves in the background (yeah all of it for this)




These are the R32 GTS-T wheels if anyone wants to buy them
they look tiny compared to the GTR wheels in the other picture.



R32 GTR 16x8 wheels



I'll have some more pics a few days hopfully they'll have my valve covers
back on so it'll start to look a little cleaner.

Another update

Got another set of deliveries of parts today

GTR wheels how they will look on the car.
30mm rotor
5 lug conversion
Red Rays lug nuts



Nismo Transmission mount
There was a mix up with the order I had to order a set
but they sent me 2 Transmission mounts and 1 Engine mount
So the 1 Trans mount and the 1 Engine mount are for sale in the classifieds.


And I got the new HKS Type 1 Turbo Timer
Also bought a new Black Apexi Turbo Timer with Amber lighting
but I'm now selling that too in the classifieds.





I wish I had some better pictures but it was dark where the car was.

The engine is fully mounted in and it fits way better than I thought it would.
The valve covers are back mounted on, and the radiator is in but I'm
almost positive that will be in and out with the crank pulley not being here
yet.









And heres just a pic of my wifes car (her project)
2004 Audi A4 1.8T Quatro
AWE Tuning Exhaust with black diamond tips (made to order, still waiting)
ECS carbon Fiber engine cover
APR Carbonio Intake
Forge 007 Diverter Valve
New OZ 18x8 Superterismo GT Black Rims
235/40ZR -18 Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum XL Tires
