I think it was Calloway I priced at ~$5500 back in '86, as for the Coup
quattro conversion, you'd probably want a firewall forward complete donor
to start with in the next bay over. For that kind of time and money,
go ahead and get a Coupe quattro or a 951.
Or how about:
lower profile tires,
high density bushings,
fresh balljoints/tierod ends,
Coupe quattro anti-roll bars,
delete A/C, sunroof, electric windows,
lexan side & rear windows,
fresh 1987 1/2 or newer engine with management hardware,
muli-angle valve job,
cam and/or retime cam.
You might be able to lose 10-15 HP worth of weight and gain 25 or so
under the hood, together with less compromised handling to make it
worth while. What have I left out?
