Q & A

  • What was the initial condition of the Audi R8 described in the script?

    -The Audi R8 was initially described as being in a very poor condition. It was advertised as a running car, but that turned out to be false. It required extensive work on the body, wheels, tires, and interior.

  • What was the plan for the Audi R8 after discovering its condition?

    -The plan was to transform the Audi R8 from the worst example to the best. The goal was to take the engine and components from a 2014 Audi V10 Plus, which was considered one of the best Gen 1 Audi R8s, and put it into the worst Gen 1 Audi R8.

  • What was the specific issue with the Audi R8's wheel and body?

    -The car had been in a crash, resulting in significant damage to the wheel and body. A wheel was displaced, indicating a severe impact, and the cost to repair this was the reason the car was available for parts.

  • Why was the Audi R8's aluminum frame not repairable by pulling?

    -Aluminum cannot be repaired by pulling as it is not forgiving like steel. Pulling aluminum can lead to weakening the chassis or cracking welds. Instead, new panels need to be used and the damaged area must be cut back and replaced.

  • What was the significance of the 2014 Audi V10 Plus in this project?

    -The 2014 Audi V10 Plus was significant because it had a 550 horsepower V10 engine and a dual-clutch transmission. The plan was to take the engine and other components from this car and put them into the worst Audi R8, transforming it into a high-performance vehicle.

  • What was the purpose of the dry sump oil tank in the Audi R8's engine?

    -The dry sump oil tank helps maintain good oil pressure during high-speed cornering and allows the engine to be mounted lower in the chassis, which improves handling. It keeps the oil in a tank offside the engine, preventing issues with pressure when the oil sloshes from side to side during high G turns.

  • What was the issue found with the Audi R8's brake system?

    -The brake system had a significant issue where the brake pad had dug into the rotor, creating a lip and reducing the usable surface area of the rotor. This necessitated the replacement of the brake discs and repainting of the calipers due to poor previous painting work.

  • What was the condition of the Audi R8's interior when it was time to remove it?

    -The interior was in a decent condition with the dashboard in great shape and the headliner intact despite the car being dusty. The car also had a sport button, indicating higher-end features.

  • What was the final step in preparing the Audi R8 for the engine swap?

    -The final step in preparing the Audi R8 for the engine swap was to thoroughly clean the car using a pressure washer and G Technic Citrus all-purpose cleaner to remove the dirt and grime, leaving it as a clean slate for the next stage of the project.

  • What was the outcome of the Audi R8 after the cleaning process?

    -After the cleaning process, the Audi R8 was left in a clean state, with all the dirt and grime removed. This prepared the car for the next stage of the project, which was the engine swap.

πŸš— Introduction and Initial Assessment

The video begins with the host, tvarish, introducing himself and expressing his long-standing desire to own an Audi R8. He explains that due to affordability, he ended up with a car that was not in the best condition. The car was advertised as functional, but upon inspection, it was discovered to be a scam. The car required extensive work on the body, wheels, tires, and interior, turning what was supposed to be a quick project into a major undertaking. Despite the challenges, tvarish reveals a silver lining: he plans to give the car away to one of his viewers after completing a full restoration. The host then introduces a 2014 Audi V10 Plus, highlighting its features such as a 550-horsepower V10 engine and a dual-clutch transmission. The goal is to transform the worst Audi R8 into the best one by replacing the old V8 with the powerful V10 engine.

05:00

πŸ› οΈ The Reality of the Project

The host and his friend Jack, an expert on crashed cars, begin to inspect the Audi R8 in detail. They discover that the car is a parts car with significant damage, including a wheel well that has been forced inward, indicating a severe crash. Despite the damage, the airbags did not deploy, which is surprising given the extent of the crash. The host explains the process of repairing aluminum车身, noting that it cannot be simply pulled on a frame machine like steel. The aluminum has likely been weakened, necessitating the replacement of panels. The host also discusses his increased focus on fun and energy in his videos, attributing it to therapy provided by today's sponsor, betterhelp.

10:01

πŸ”§ζ‹†εΈε’Œθ―„δΌ°

The video continues with the host and Jack dismantling the rear of the Audi R8, removing parts such as the rear bumper, tail lights, and muffler section. They discuss the ease of disassembling the car due to its bolted rear quarter panel, a feature unique to the R8. The host points out some modifications made by previous owners and expresses concern over the quality of these alterations. The engine is started, and despite its V10 power, it does not sound as loud as expected. The host also mentions the car's sport button and the car's idling condition.

15:03

🚧 Front End Inspection and Cleaning

The host and Jack move on to the front end of the car, removing the hood and bumper to assess the damage. They find a dent and a misaligned radiator assembly, indicating a previous front-end collision. The host discusses the need to replace certain parts for a 100% OEM fit and finish. Despite the damage, the host remains optimistic about the car's potential. They also find a disconnected ride height sensor, adding to the list of issues. The host suggests a thorough cleaning and inspection of the car's interior and other components.

20:03

πŸ”© Engine Removal and Replacement Preparation

The host and Jack proceed to remove the engine from the Audi R8, a complex process due to the car's construction. They discuss the challenges of removing the wiring harness and the dry sump oil tank, a feature that improves handling by maintaining oil pressure during high-speed cornering. The engine is eventually removed, revealing a messy state with numerous leaks. The host expresses disappointment with the previous owner's work, particularly the poor resealing of the engine after timing work. The V10 engine is prepared to be fitted into the R8, marking a significant step in the car's transformation.

25:07

🧼 Deep Cleaning the Audi R8

After stripping the car down, the host and his team give the Audi R8 a thorough cleaning. They use a high-pressure washer and G Technic Citrus all-purpose cleaner to remove the dirt and grime. The car is also treated to a foam cannon for a detailed clean. The host reflects on the progress made and expresses excitement for the next steps, which include installing the V10 engine in place of the V8. The video ends with the host looking forward to the next episode, where the engine replacement will take place.

Transcripts

00:00

how's it going guys my name is tvarish

00:01

and I have always wanted an Audi R8

00:04

unfortunately the only one I could

00:06

afford was this one now I know what

00:09

you're thinking that Audi doesn't look

00:12

all that bad but looks can be deceiving

00:15

this car was a complete scam because it

00:18

was originally advertised as a running

00:20

car but as we found out that was a

00:27

lie come

00:28

on

00:31

come

00:33

on was right

00:35

there it also needed a ton of work on

00:39

the body wheels and

00:41

tires and the

00:45

interior so it certainly seemed like

00:47

this quick project was going to be a

00:49

major undertaking but there was a silver

00:52

lining so even though this is the worst

00:55

clean title example of an Audi R8 I

00:57

could find at the end of the build it's

01:00

going to one of you my viewers because

01:01

I'm giving this car away to one of you

01:04

which means that I have to turn this

01:06

Audi which is the worst one ever into

01:08

the best Audi R8 you've ever

01:11

[Music]

01:20

seen and that's why I got this a 2014

01:25

Audi V10 plus and this is going to be

01:29

well one part of a really really

01:32

interesting build because underneath

01:34

here wow that's kind of heavy is a 550

01:38

horsepower V10 and what's more

01:41

interesting is that behind this V10 is a

01:45

dual clutch transmission not the crappy

01:47

single clutch that's in our v8 car so

01:49

you can probably tell what's about to

01:51

happen we're going to take everything

01:52

from this car which is quite possibly

01:54

the best gen 1 Audi R8 ever made and

01:58

we're putting it into the wor worst gen

02:00

one Audi R8 ever made now before we

02:03

start taking this car apart and swapping

02:05

things we need to actually see what's

02:07

wrong with this car and there is a lot

02:09

wrong with this car because after all

02:11

it's a parts car and when I say we I

02:13

mean me and my friend

02:18

Jack Jack knows everything there is to

02:20

know about uh a crashed car and this is

02:23

a crashed car it it doesn't seem like it

02:25

from the back but um I guess that's good

02:28

because the engines in the back uh we

02:31

should this is good there's some not so

02:33

good over

02:34

there hold on hold on I I got it I got

02:37

it it's shut hold on hold on hold on

02:39

wait hold on hold

02:42

on there are some tolerances this is

02:45

what we like to call an oopsie yeah this

02:47

is where the wheel goes yeah this is

02:49

where the wheel went there's no wheel

02:50

there it went off in your expert opinion

02:53

is this repairable it is repairable but

02:56

the cost to repair this is the reason

02:59

why this got to out because it would

03:01

have to go on a jig you would have to

03:02

like cut all this structure out I can

03:04

tell just from the way the door pill uh

03:06

the door is sitting that the a pillar is

03:09

really far back you can see here where

03:10

the wheel just jammed into it so it got

03:12

hit here and then just went yeah it

03:15

crumpled everything here Push the door

03:17

back but what's crazy is that the

03:19

airbags didn't go off this this is a

03:21

pretty bad crash yeah I'm surprised they

03:23

didn't go off like they're I mean

03:24

literally it just it skimmed right by it

03:26

this is what people on eBay would call

03:28

easy fix

03:31

let's take this out all right this is

03:33

aluminum correct mhm and one thing that

03:37

you shouldn't do and this is something I

03:39

do know from Jack cuz he's taught me

03:41

this uh you don't pull aluminum nope um

03:45

aluminum is not something that you can

03:47

just heat up and pull on a frame machine

03:49

steel you can yeah um but with reason

03:52

too like steel like gives you certain

03:55

tolerances and certain Heats that you

03:56

can get to before you destroy the

03:59

molecules it but with aluminum if you

04:01

pull it a lot of the times these cars

04:03

are glued and riveted together so what

04:07

happens is you break that Bond

04:09

underneath and you don't even know and

04:10

now you just weaken the chassis or you

04:12

crack a weld something like that so

04:14

those are reasons why you don't pull

04:15

aluminum I think I can probably

04:17

demonstrate to you how this works what

04:19

happens in an accident is you see this

04:22

right here if you try to unbend this

04:24

paper clip it becomes what's called work

04:27

hardened and if you y see

04:31

look look how easy that was super easy

04:34

yeah if you try to heat this up and bend

04:35

it back that's all that's going to

04:36

happen so you just create a giant weak

04:38

point and now your car is no good but

04:41

with steel it's it's a lot more

04:43

forgivable with aluminum you'd have to

04:45

have brand new panels and you have to

04:47

cut it back as far as you can and then

04:50

put new ones in the only reason I know

04:51

this is because he did this on the

04:52

Ferrari that's the only reason I know

04:54

this all right guys so I don't know if

04:55

you've noticed but in the last year or

04:58

so I've put a lot more energy and a lot

05:00

more fun into my videos and that is no

05:02

coincidence because well before that

05:05

every time I would come to my shop I

05:06

would feel the weight of the world on my

05:09

shoulders frankly it was too much for me

05:11

08:03

doesn't sound that loud yeah it's a

08:05

stock exhaust it doesn't doesn't really

08:07

make much noise does it seems a bit like

08:09

you know like like restricted for sure

08:11

08:26

I'm not like that guy across the street

08:27

in the Evo he's know

08:30

I J so we have to get to work uh this is

08:34

going to be the

08:36

Audi

08:37

R8 V8 to V10 swaero number one we're

08:42

going to take apart the v8 car meaning

08:45

that we have to take off

08:47

bumpers Wheels axles fluids side panels

08:52

quarters and then pull engine and then

08:55

uh we have to do this whole

08:58

thing in Reverse in reverse order and

09:01

we're going to do it

09:03

all

09:04

in

09:09

24 weeks there you go there we go that's

09:12

right see that's the realistic time

09:14

frame that we're going to do this in

09:17

okay fine fine we're not going to do it

09:18

in weeks we'll do we'll do it in 24 days

09:26

24

09:28

minutes

09:31

go we started the tear down by carefully

09:34

removing the huge carbon fiber

09:37

spoiler

09:42

catch and then we remov the back hatch

09:45

which seemed to be made of depleted

09:48

uranium oh why is this so

09:53

heavy this is like the heaviest part of

09:55

the car it really

09:57

is thankfully the rest of the car was a

10:00

little more

10:05

[Music]

10:08

straightforward the rear bumper came off

10:11

along with the tail lights and then the

10:13

gigantic Muffler section could be

10:20

remove and since we were experts this

10:23

step was

10:28

easy

10:30

okay that's

10:36

one sometimes the nut gets stuck in here

10:39

it's you got

10:41

[Music]

10:54

to what does Matt say when he uh he

10:57

tries to tries to do it he goes Ferrari

10:58

Ferrari Ferrari Aude Audy

11:01

Aude there we

11:05

go okay this is going to be very heavy

11:08

watch your feet want to lower this a

11:09

little

11:11

bit oh that's heavy

11:17

fing look got my fingers we're good

11:22

yay wait till we have to put that back

11:25

we're not putting this

11:27

back wow what a hole the Audi R8 is

11:31

pretty unique in that the rear quarter

11:33

panel isn't welded on it's bolted which

11:36

makes taking the car apart much much

11:39

easier however since this car was

11:41

handled by a few shade tree mechanics we

11:44

did find some modifications I don't

11:48

think this is Factory uh I mean small

11:52

chance it could be but uh the rusty

11:54

washer and ton of RTV silicone here

12:00

so look at that I don't think this is

12:02

how it's supposed to go now that we have

12:03

this off I don't know what this is uh

12:05

we're going to try to take the quarter

12:08

panels off once the quarter panels are

12:10

off then we can go underneath remove a

12:14

bunch of stuff and then the engine comes

12:15

out the top I swear I've done this at

12:18

least once before 3 two 1

12:23

pull oh there we go oh it's so heavy

12:27

look at that look at that look that dude

12:29

this looks look at that we should just

12:31

leave it like this you should just look

12:32

at

12:33

it has this had any accident damage or

12:36

anything it looks like it got like

12:38

bumped here but nothing major okay let's

12:40

just up a little bit like we can bend

12:42

that back down if it doesn't break

12:44

hopefully so we have oil cooler over

12:47

there we got

12:50

intake um we got this is gas tank right

12:54

that plastic thing y cool so that's gas

12:56

tank hopefully that's the

12:58

same throughout car oh no the gas tanks

13:00

are probably going to be different

13:01

aren't they yeah so the in cabin air

13:03

filter that's the same so that's good I

13:05

think somebody is going to get a really

13:07

really really nice car absolutely yeah

13:09

this is going to be like awesome all we

13:11

do is piss excellence and we're pretty

13:14

much the greatest thing since sliced

13:16

bread yeah um so you're welcome you're

13:20

welcome can you see this is perfection

13:22

right here look at that's Perfection

13:24

right what do I do with my hands hate to

13:26

say it this is starting to look like the

13:27

P1 project

13:30

that's what we do here uh so we take

13:32

cars that look like cars and then we

13:35

turn them into shells and then we just

13:37

leave them

13:38

alone thanks for

13:42

watching taking apart the passenger side

13:45

was almost exactly like the driver's

13:47

side other than the addition of the fuel

13:50

filler

13:53

[Music]

13:57

door once the carbon side blade was

14:00

removed we removed the side skirt which

14:03

was held on with about 30 bolts which is

14:05

about three times as many as you'd

14:07

actually

14:08

[Music]

14:16

[Music]

14:22

need we put the car in the air removed

14:25

the wheels and sway bar and brought the

14:29

car all the way up to drain the

14:34

fluids but then we noticed some more of

14:37

the previous owner's

14:40

handiwork uh I wanted to admire the

14:42

handiwork here um because not only did

14:45

they paint the uh parking brake caliper

14:48

but the caliper here and also the the

14:51

line and also uh some of the rotor right

14:54

here and they also left some tape so at

14:57

least they taped stuff off it's covered

14:58

up it's good good yeah it's good it's

15:00

good this I can guarantee you this only

15:02

took 30 minutes to spray these okay uh

15:05

so there's a there's a little inside

15:07

joke because uh on my McLaren uh we

15:10

wanted to paint the brake calipers in

15:12

time for SEMA and Jack was like hey it's

15:15

only going to take 30 minutes to paint

15:17

them and he was right only took 30

15:19

minutes to paint the caliper it took him

15:21

6 hours to mask everything off I had to

15:23

prep everything didn't want to get

15:24

anything on the nice shiny paint yeah so

15:26

you didn't want anything like this uh so

15:29

thank you very much Jack cuz I this is

15:31

this is a terrible terrible terrible job

15:33

uh so look at that feel that lip though

15:35

pretty bad that lip is really good oh

15:37

wow the pad has dug into well the pad on

15:40

this has dug into the rotor so much that

15:44

it's created a lip and you don't have

15:46

any more really usable surface here and

15:49

it's probably the same way all around

15:50

yeah so we're going to have to get new

15:53

brake discs we're definitely going to

15:55

have to uh get these repainted because

15:57

they're painted like absolute garbage

15:59

yeah so maybe in a different color we'll

16:00

definitely have them powder Co um but

16:03

that's good we have the side panels off

16:05

now we got to lift the car up and a cool

16:08

thing is that this car has BC racing

16:10

coilovers so look at that they're all

16:12

adjustable you have adjustable um uh

16:15

dampening right here and you have the

16:18

ride height adjustable here so we can

16:19

adjust this to whatever we want and it

16:22

looks like it's in really good shape so

16:24

there haven't been any other things that

16:27

are like big issues on this car so far

16:30

nothing glaring no uh it's just

16:33

superficial outside stuff mhm and uh you

16:35

know South Florida stuff yeah yeah it's

16:37

just been really really badly taken care

16:39

of so uh we're going to put the car in

16:41

the air and take out all the fluids

16:43

whatever's left of them cuz a lot of it

16:45

just leaked out into the floor anyway

16:47

and then uh then we can take the engine

16:49

out yeah that's it I we are making good

16:51

progress don't say oh my God don't say

16:53

that making good do not say that we're

16:54

going to make it to SEMA with this car

16:57

okay let's don't do

17:12

[Applause]

17:15

take a look at this like look how look

17:17

how oily how oily this is this engine

17:22

was out of the car because they had to

17:24

reseal it and do some timing work and

17:28

they screwed up whoever had this car

17:29

before and then they just plopped the

17:31

engine in and then sold the car as

17:33

running even though it was never running

17:35

um and it was leaking all over the place
