Audi S4 Pricing for sale or repair!

Hi,
I would like your opinions on the price i could get for my 1993 S4.....presently it sits in my yard with a seized engine block do to a return oil line comming loose between the oil cooler and engine.....
Aside from the fact that it doesn't run, the rest of the car is in top shape and in working order, it's red has mags, 3" exhaust and a mp3 player, included also are fuel ratio, vacum, and turbo temp gauges!
What could i possibly get for it in present condition?
How much to have it fixed? Is a rebuild an option, or do i need to find another engine?
All comments or sugestions would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

I had a '94 S4 (basically the same car). One night in western Massachusetts, I hit a deer. I was going about 65 when the collision occured. There wasn't much sheet metal damage - I could have driven it home - but the engine had eaten all 20 valves. The collision caused the cam belt to break and bent the cam shaft. The original estimate was $2000 to fix everything. Then they found the valves needed to be replace, and at $100+/valve, the expenses started to go up. Then the bent cam shaft was discovered *after* the new valves were put in and the car was started. Bottom line, the final bill was $22,000. Soooo, I'm willing to bet that a rebuilt engine for it would cost a pretty penny, and that doesn't include the turbo. However, there is a price for everything. Some one out there will buy it and fix it. I'd say it is worth about 20% of what it would sell for with a top notch engine.
BTW, that '94 is still going strong with nary any problems. My son-in-law drove it for a couple of years and has sold it to his 20 year old son. It has about 140K miles on it, and can be seen at my site. Dave

Well, You could look into getting a used engine - swapping the engine shouldnt be TOOOOOOOO expensive, if you can find a good running one.
A place I often get my used audi parts from is: www.dadsauto.com
I know that they have a 1993 and a 1994 S4.
Good luck,
Adam

JFB, Check out the classified ads on www.s-cars.org www.car-part.com www.800allaudi.com www.ebay.com or www.ebay.de ($$$hipping) If I had the car (and was not waiting for 6 years to buy a 1995.5 S6 Avant) I'd look for a replacement engine. Like Dave said, you start rebuilding the engine and suddenly unexpected costs appear....but you're already committed. If you get an engine, then you can sell what you have left of yours to somebody looking for one for a swap - you can find these people at www.audifans.com and let them deal with the rebuild (there's a fair market for 3B/AAN engines for transplant into older Audis) Of course.....if you're _giving_ it away....DIBS!!!! (hey, nothing asked....nothing gained) Cheers! Steve Sears 1987 Audi 5kTQ 1980 Audi 5k 1962 and '64 Auto Union DKW Junior deLuxes (SPAM Blocker NOTE: Remove SHOES to reply)

Thanks Steve,
Would you happen to know about how much $$$ i'm looking at for a used one? And how many man hours to swap it in?
I really have a dilemma on my hands, and I need to check all my options...
Thanks again, JFB
