Audi on the way up 87 4KS
I've finally took the plunge and moved into a Street Prepared class with
my Audi. This new class (SCCA) allows much more in the way of
modifications, so I thought that I'd see what everyone has tried, and see
if it works.
The rules allow, including all the below, and possibly more I forgot:
exhaust system is free: I would like more info on replacing the single
outlet manifold with the dual outlet from an early Audi Fox.(?) Need the
downpipe too, if you please. I think Ti Kan has done this swap on his
4K, but I can't remember.
BTW, the kitty will be leaving exhaust the tract.
Engine ignition is free: I have been thinking of an MSD spark box, as it
is cheap ($120). Let's here some feedback on some of the others such as
Jacobs, J&S, etc.
I think I have found a place with a front strut-tower brace, but it is
currently being checked by a fellow list-member.
Struts and springs are basically free: I am getting a set of springs very
soon, and already have BOGE ProGas shocks installed. They work well, but
will work much better with the higher rate-lower ride springs.
I can port match the cylinder head, but no further than 1" inside of it.
In other words, any porting/polishing beyond 1" from the openings is
The best stuff, like cams, is illegal. Must run stock heads (for the
most part) and blocks, with a slight overbore (.0472?) allowed for
cleanup. I don't plan on tearing the short-block down until it pukes.
It runs too well now to tear into the internals.
There is some other stuff I am going to do, such as look into
light-weight racing seats, as well as removing the A/C to shed some
valuable pounds from the chassis.
Wheels and tires are free, but I already have 3 sets of factory wheels,
so they will stay until I get a real job, graduate from college, or
