Wild ideas for the OOOOwww-D
Okay everyone, I am thinking about moving my race car to another class
that allows a lot of modifications for my 86 4kq. The class is called
"street prepaed" and the way the rules are written, I can interchange
parts from ANY quattro with a production run of over 1000 cars [no sport
My mind started spinning with the thought of a lowered and stiffened 4kq
with either a V8 or a 20v turbo motor under the hood with torsen diffs.
The rules allow for any exhaust and intake. I can not increase boost if
it is a turbo motor. I can change the fuel system to carbs or efi. The
catch is, the other components must be "bolt-on" changes. I can not
fabricate to make things fit.
What motors will fit? Will a torsen diff fit in my existing diff
housing? What other gearboxes / rear ends were available to increase
acceleration? SHould I just increase the power of the existing motor and
how (no cams).
This should be a fun one to discuss and hopefully do over the winter.
