Default Audi 90 2.3 20v 7a quattro

Hello

So finally i have gotten what I wanted. But it just needs few issues sorting out.

I am after an s2 look bumper? Preferably cheaper the better 🤣

Looking for sportier front grill.

Advice on what little things can be done, just to get a few extra bhp.

Also clutch pedal started to stick half way? It seem to engage fine. And is drivable just doesnt fully come back?

The engine has had timing belt and waterpump recently changed. I dont really know much about these engines, what things I should just replace for peace of mind. As I want to be using it as a dialy driver.

2.3 20v quattro audi 90 b3
Thanks

great cars and more than capable of being used as a daily. My 20v is my main car and I've had it for ages and it's clocked up silly miles now.

for the clutch, I'd recommend bleeding the system.

They're generally very solid and if you keep on top of oil changes and the basics they'll run for as long as you want them to.

I replace spark plugs every 20k. Rotor arm and distributor cap get done every 50k. I always replace all 3 belts at the same time (50k / 5 years) so so if your timing belt is already done, I'd consider the alternator and power steering drive belts.

Thanks for the advice. I orderd some parts I already needed, so hopefully will be on the road soon. I have never had a 20v engine, in coupe I used to have it was a 10v NG, whats the avarage MPG?

Bumper will need modifying to fit because the S2 has wider wheel arches than a 90.

for mpg, it depends on driving style.

I've seen as much as 490 miles from a tank which was around 38 mpg. With E10 now, I'm typically seeing about 420-440 which is 32 ish.

I spend most of my journeys on motorways and dual carriageways and they're usually 40 miles or more so have always seen good mpg.

Does your car have the red interior by chance ?
