Re: New engine for the GT...which one?

IMHO i'd go with the first choice.  For those of you in the Northwest 
who've seen the red '84 4kq with S4 badges on it (there was a post about 
it a few weeks ago), a friend of mine is building an engine for it using 
the long block 2.3L, ported/polished 10v head, different pistons, 
different cam (can't remember the details), and exhaust manifold.  The 
engine should do around 160 hp, and its designed for lots of low end 
power (unlike the turbos and 20v designs).  Depending on your driving 
style and whether or not you're a weekend racer, something like this 
might be a good option.
