Thanks guys for all your kind words and encouragement.
Manage to get a lot of the wiring into the ecu connector today. Had to change all the pin on the caddy ecu wires to the Audi pin as they are slightly different.
Just the lambdas, air mass and 2 fuses to put in the ecu.
Then take out the unused caddy wiring.
Hopefully I will get that done Wednesday.
That’s the plan 🤞

Well you make a plan then someone always puts a spanner in the works.
Not been able to work on the caddy that much this week as work has been mental. But managed to get so much needed time on it this afternoon.
Got the new to me subframe in.
Image

With new stretch bolts.

Got the exhaust bolted up with the 4 new lambda bolted in
Image

And then got some more of the wiring done
Image

Next on the wiring is the fuse box wiring and still got to remove the unused caddy wiring

was it cut the blue wire or cut the red wire?

That looks both great & frightening at the same time.

@11ATL
Most of the wiring is done now just got to put two relays in, run wires for two fuses and then tape it all up and the wiring is done.
Should be back on the ground this week all being well🤞

Sounds good, how big is the instruction manual for this, take it's a tad bigger than an IKEA Wardrobe instructions?

Got a date for first firing up, you going to video that for us all?Image

Been at it again today.
Got the new cluster in (with blue needles)Image

Tried to see if the engine would turn over today and it did.
So now the next step is to sort out some of the errors that have came up with a scan. Image

Sorted out some of them already.
