Re: HELP MY 4KQ!
> 2. My rear muffler is gone.. rusted and broken. OEM or aftermarket?
Had mine replaced aftermarket at a local shop for $100. Worx fine, loox stock.

H&R springs are pretty good, koni adjustables are hard to beat. 15x7
w/205/60 Dunlop 8000's work well. European car has had a project 4kq for
about a year, and back issues will tell you what all they have done.

Perhaps the "audi guy" has had too many fumes... :) Anyway, when I got my
4kq, none of the diff lock lights worked, but I could tell the locks were
working. I took apart the panel, and made sure the vacuum lines were all
well plugged in, and the electrical socket was seated. Upon reassembly,
everything worked right, still does 2 years later...just because the light
doesn't go on doesn't mean the locks arent working.

Call Max @ AVS...(360)748-8578)...he had a donor two weeks ago he wanted to
get rid of quick (still in the car even!). Good luck!
