Re: 1990 Coupe Quattro, more power, squeeky hatch
on tuesday, 5 dec 1995 you asked...
more power to the coupe????
solutions: 1. cheapest. learn to use rpms...the 20V motor does not hit its
torque/hp peak until about 4k rpm....
2. Most satisfying. turbo 20v motor from an s4, or a 200. should
cost in the neighborhood of $10k.
3. Others. chips?? save your money.
K&N filtercharger ?? will gain a couple of hp
cams & extrude-honing the intake manifold will gain
alot more hp, but Schrick cams are $$$
stroking the motor to 2.5 liters??? Eurorace is supposed
to come out with a kit. Opening a motor will really
cost $$$ and down time...
4. sell the coupe and buy an 86-89 5000. replace the leaky steering
rack. fix the broken turn signal switch. fix the power window
switches. send money to Ned at IA. install new ECU. send money
to scott (PDQSHIP) for one of his turbo kits...
That wraps up the power questions...
solution. the hatch itself has two "bumpers". they are similar to the stem
on a bicyle, where you loosen a binder bolt, then adjust the height.
in this case the "binder bolt" is a recessed hex bolt (6-8mm???). Open
the hatch, look into the bumper- try a hex wrench til you have the right
size. loosen the bolt. pull the bumper out a little (count the ridges
so that your'e consistent on both sides. Don't pull it out more than a
few millimeters, otherwise that hatch won't close.
BTW, you may have to adjust this periodically, since "slamming the hatch"
will eventually push the bumper back in.
Any more Coupe Q problems??? e-mail me directly!
